Cuidado com o alemão

Depois de quinhentos anos da Reforma, Martinho Lutero ainda é uma figura impactante para a igreja cristã. Este livro é uma prova de sua relevância para nossa época, sobretudo para a igreja. O Reformador, com seus dentes afiados, dá três dentadas que são marcantes para onosso contexto atual: • A primeira chama-se "Maldade". Nela o Reformador diz que somos piores do que pensamos. • A segunda chama-se "Meninada". Nela o Reformador dá um exemplo de educação dos filhos. • A terceira chama-se "Música". Nela o Reformador corrige-nos o ritmo. É só quando Lutero nos ofende que aprendemos alguma coisa com ele. Este livro não é um tratamento objetivo da personagem histórica. É uma apologia de Lutero e só cumprirá seu propósito se incomodar o leitor.

For the Spirit, being somewhat forgotten is an occupational hazard. The Holy Spirit is so actively involved in our lives that we can take his presence for granted. As they say, familiarity breeds contempt. Just as we take breathing for granted, we can take the Holy Spirit for granted simply because we constantly depend on him. Like the cane that soon feels like an extension of the blind man’s own body, we too easily begin to think of the Holy Spirit as an extension of ourselves. Yet the Spirit is at the center of the action in the divine drama from Genesis 1:2 all the way to Revelation 22:17. The Spirit’s work is as essential as the Father’s and the Son’s, yet the Spirit’s work is always directed to the person and work of Christ. In fact, the efficacy of the Holy Spirit’s mission is measured by the extent to which we are focused on Christ. The Holy Spirit is the person of the Trinity who brings the work of the Father, in the Son, to completion. In everything that the Triune God performs, this perfecting work is characteristic of the Spirit. In Rediscovering the Holy Spirit, author, pastor, and theologian Mike Horton introduces readers to the neglected person of the Holy Spirit, showing that the work of God’s Spirit is far more ordinary and common than we realize. Horton argues that we need to take a step back every now and again to focus on the Spirit himself—his person and work—in order to recognize him as someone other than Jesus or ourselves, much less something in creation. Through this contemplation we can gain a fresh dependence on the Holy Spirit in every area of our lives.
Through the teachings of Jesus, and Christian mystics such as St Augustine and Meister Eckhart, Stefan Gillow Reynolds demonstrates that the practice of Mindfulness leading to silent meditation, recommended by many therapists, is not a modern fad but has always had a place within contemplative Christianity.

O objetivo deste livro é ajudar a enfrentar as novas situações, os novos séculos e milênios com a segurança de que antes que nascessem os montes e se formassem a terra e o mundo, nosso Deus é Deus (Sl 90.2). A ele seja a glória pelos séculos dos séculos! Os quatro temas discutidos na primeira parte deste livro são de grande importância neste terceiro milênio. A ecologia e a economia já são temas de vida ou morte para boa parte da humanidade, bem como para centenas de espécies biológicas cuja existência está ameaçada e em perigo de extinção. Sob o título de 'catolicidade' o autor procura oferecer algumas diretrizes, não apenas para o que tradicionalmente se tem chamado de 'ecumenismo', ou seja, a unidade entre as diversas denominações cristãs, mas também e, sobretudo, a unidade pelas muitas divisões de classe, nacionalidade, gênero, idade e etc., que existem na igreja. Por último, o quarto capítulo trata de um aspecto específico dessa diversidade - a cultura. A segunda parte consiste de três sermões pregados no Seminário Presbiteriano na cidade do México.

The Lucky Country
Author: Donald Horne
Publisher: Penguin Books
There has never been a book like The Lucky Country . Outselling all other books on Australia, it has helped shape the society it set out to explore. The phrase 'the lucky country' has become part of the Australian language, setting the guidelines for debates about the Australian way of life. When it was first published in 1964 as a radical critique of the philistinism, provincialism and dependence of Australian society, the book caused a sensation. Stylish and witty, it has become a classic. Although a study of the confident Australia of the 1960s, it still has much to offer decades later. This edition contains a new introduction by the author which takes a fresh look at the book and examines its value not only as a source of continuing truths and revealing snapshots of the past, but above all as a key to understanding the anxieties and discontents of Australian society today.
