“We thank you for the inspiration and strength

That you have given to Madiba,

Enabling him, over so many years, to draw out the best in others,

rousing us always, by word and example,

to seek the highest good for every child of this nation.”

So prayed Archbishop Thabo Makgoba with Nelson Mandela in his home in 2009 at the request of Graca Machel. This marked the start of an unusual relationship between southern Africa’s Anglican leader and Mandela in his quietening years. Join Makgoba in his journey towards faith, from his boyhood in Alex as the son of a ZCC pastor to Bishopscourt and praying with Mandela. He shares his feelings about his pastoral approach to the world icon, and how they influenced his thinking on ministering to church and nation in the current era. What did praying with those nearest and dearest to Mandela mean? What was his spirituality? In trying to answer these questions, Makgoba opens a window on South Africa’s spiritual make-up and life.

The Diaconal Church presents a highly topical debate about an innovative model of church described in David Clark's book Breaking the Mould of Christendom. Thirteen scholars from different denominations discuss the themes which underpin the model of the diaconal church. In the final chapter, Clark argues that the diaconal church has a contribution of paramount importance to make to sacred and secular institutions alike.

American Saint - Francis Asbury and the Methodists (Paperback): John Wigger American Saint - Francis Asbury and the Methodists (Paperback)
John Wigger
R864 Discovery Miles 8 640 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

English-born Francis Asbury was one of the most important religious leaders in American history. Asbury single-handedly guided the creation of the American Methodist church, which became the largest Protestant denomination in nineteenth-century America, and laid the foundation of the Holiness and Pentecostal movements that flourish today. In American Saint, John Wigger has written the definitive biography of Asbury and, by extension, a revealing interpretation of the early years of the Methodist movement in America. Asbury emerges here as not merely an influential religious leader, but a fascinating character, who lived an extraordinary life. His cultural sensitivity was matched only by his ability to organize. His life of prayer and voluntary poverty were legendary, as was his generosity to the poor. He had a remarkable ability to connect with ordinary people, and he met with thousands of them as he crisscrossed the nation, riding more than one hundred and thirty thousand miles between his arrival in America in 1771 and his death in 1816. Indeed Wigger notes that Asbury was more recognized face-to-face than any other American of his day, including Thomas Jefferson and George Washington.

Building Kingdom Communities - with the diaconate as a new order of mission (Paperback): David Clark Building Kingdom Communities - with the diaconate as a new order of mission (Paperback)
David Clark
R233 Discovery Miles 2 330 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

In a world in which resources are unjustly distributed, identities are under threat and solidarity is fragile, the toughest task facing humanity is the quest for community. Yet the contribution of the church to that task is undermined because its message and organization remain stuck in the past. Christians fail to grasp that in the gifts of the kingdom community - life, liberation, love and learning - they hold the key to what the search for community is all about. This book describes those gifts and how a servant church, through the creation of its diaconate as an order of mission, might offer a fragmented world new hope.The Methodist Church in Britain is taken as a model of what could be achieved.

This book series examines issues of Faith and Order, and to some extent issues of life and work, from the perspective of leadership in a modern Pentecostal church movement. The series addresses the harnessing of ethnicity nationality and personal history in the search for church unity. It tries to answer questions such as what is means to be Apostolic in 21st Century Pentecostalism. It looks at how these charismatic churches can renew their historic roots and seek greater local unity with other Christians while remaining authentic as Pentecostals. The author also encourages greater contributions of convergence Pentecostals to the community cohesion, and to peace and justice.

Breaking the Mould of Christendom - Kingdom Community, Diaconal Church and the Liberation of the Laity (Paperback): David Clark Breaking the Mould of Christendom - Kingdom Community, Diaconal Church and the Liberation of the Laity (Paperback)
David Clark
R456 Discovery Miles 4 560 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This book is founded on the premise that being a servant of 'the kingdom community' must become the heart of the church's mission. Unless this happens Christians will have little to offer to a world now facing an ultimate choice between community and chaos. To fulfil this mission the mould of Christendom needs to be broken so that a new form of church - the diaconal church - can come into being. This will mean a church open to dialogue, a laity liberated from clericalism and the creation of a servant leadership. The book includes an informative evaluation of five original case-studies of the diaconal church in action and the diaconal potential of five worldwide Christian 'renewal movements'.

R473 R392 Discovery Miles 3 920 Save R81 (17%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Disturbing the Peace tells the amazing story of Maryknoll Father Roy Bourgeois, who achieved national attention for leading the campaign to close the U.S. Army School of the Americas. From his Cajun roots in Louisiana and his stint as a Navy officer in Vietnam, we follow the route that led Bourgeois to Maryknoll and to the work in Latin America that awakened his conscience. Appalled by the U.S. role in supporting oppression, he followed the trail of atrocities back to the School of the Americas in Fort Benning, Georgia, attended by many of the hemisphere's most notorious violators of human rights.

Since 1983 Father Bourgeois has campaigned against the School, serving years in federal prisons as a result of his civil disobedience. His witness has turned the spotlight on a record of shame and helped arouse the conscience of the nation.

Just Say Yes! (Paperback): Robert Schnase Just Say Yes! (Paperback)

R304 R250 Discovery Miles 2 500 Save R54 (18%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The church says 'no' in a thousand ways, squelching and constraining creative people who want to use the gifts God has given them to serve and lead. Sometimes our 'no' is explicit and other times we restrain innovation in more nuanced and even unintentional ways. And everyone in the church is guilty of 'no-saying'--pastors, laity, and staff. In some corners it seems like nearly anything new is eyed with suspicion. Just Say Yes! shows how to unleash disciples, giving them permission and encouragement to be bold and fruitful followers of Christ. It helps pastors and other leaders examine the systems, attitudes, and dynamics that restrain, control, and diminish ministry. It provides insights and practical help for those who want be more adept at initiating ministry, more open to innovation and experimentation for the purposes of Christ.

The Mainliner's Survival Guide to the Post-Denominational World considers how the declining church should live into the hope of its legacy by living out the Gospel's radical nature with reckless abandon. In a world where the fastest growing religious self-designation among emerging generations is "none," the hope of the church may lie in worrying less about the survival of the church and aiming more toward living like Jesus.

The Life and Pontificate of Pope Pius XII - Between History and Controversy (Paperback): Frank J. Coppa The Life and Pontificate of Pope Pius XII - Between History and Controversy (Paperback)
Frank J. Coppa
R661 Discovery Miles 6 610 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Eugenio Pacelli, Pope Pius XII, is one of the most studied but least understood popes of the twentieth century while his pontificate remains the most turbulent and controversial. Although there is a general consensus that he faced serious problems during his tenure-fascist aggression, the Second World War, the Nazi genocide of the Jews, the march of communism, and the Cold War-there is disagreement on his response to these developments. Applauded by some as an "apostle for peace" for his attempt to prevent the outbreak of war, he has been denounced by others as an "advocate of appeasement" for this same effort. Praised by both Christian and Jews for his "Crusade of Charity" during the war, he was denounced by many for his "silence" during the Holocaust. These conflicting interpretations, dubbed the Pius Wars, are often narrow in focus, lack objectivity, and have shed more heat than light. Written by one of the foremost historians of Pius XII, the present biographical study, unlike the greater part of the vast and growing historiography of Pope Pius XII, is a balanced and nonreactive account of his life and times. Its focus is not on the pope's silence during the Holocaust, though it does address the issue in a historical and objective framework. This is a biography of the man as well as the pope. It probes the roots of his traditionalism and legalism, his approach to modernity and reformism in Church and society, and the influences behind his policies and actions. This book is the first biography of Eugenio Pacelli to appear in English since the opening of the papers of the pontificate of Pius XI (1922-1939), in which Pacelli served as nuncio to Germany and secretary of state, along with the publication of the memories of figures close to Papa Pacelli.

Let's face it; we need leaders. The Church is a place of ministry where not only males are needed, but females too. But sometimes, we're afraid. Will there be room for us in ministry? What will people's reactions be? Will we lose our femininity?Women are called to a life in ministry, even leadership roles. God calls both men and women to guide Christians towards truth, understanding, love, and discipline. Mary Paul explores the obstacles that women face and the myths about women leadership that have been fed to both genders for generations. Women Who Lead uncovers them, reveals God's call to women for leadership, and celebrates all who are led to lead. 'Talitha cum' means 'Little girl, get up ' in Aramaic. This book helps women everywhere know how to do just that.

Archbishop Njongonkulu Ndungane holds a pivotal place in the history of South Africa. As a childhood friend of Chris Hani and inspired by the thinking of Robert Mangaliso Sobukwe, he became a political activist in the liberation struggle against apartheid. Preceding Nelson Mandela to Robben Island, he was in fact one of the prisoners responsible for building Mandiba’s prison cell. Once released from ‘the island’ he became a champion of the poor and oppressed - speaking out against segregation, fighting for the rights of HIV positive people, and acknowledging the equal role of women in society. On becoming Archbishop of Cape Town he succeeded Desmond Tutu, and was responsible for continuing implementation of change within the Church. During his eleven years residence in Bishopscourt, Archbishop Njongo, as he was affectionately known, was a bridge-builder linking divergent views and a catalyst for change.
