6. Why Can't We Talk? Christian Wisdom on Dialogue as a Habit of the Heart (Large Print 16pt) - John Backman

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

God's imperatives for us - to practice peacemaking, love others and build community - all begin with authentic dialogue.
Think of an issue that makes your blood boil. Now imagine lunch with a friend who is just as passionate about it - on the other side. How can the two of you even broach the issue, let alone hear each other with curiosity and compassion?
The answer begins long before the lunch does, by learning to engage dialogue as a habit of the heart - an inner transformation that the ancient practices of Christian spirituality can address. This highly readable and timely guide to restoring dialogue shows Christians of many stripes how to cultivate this transformation while preparing them to approach their adversaries with curiosity, civility and compassion. This book:
Examines the obstacles that keep us from dialogue: black - and - white thinking, our ''distraction lifestyle,'' the fear of change and more.
Explores the strengths of character from which healthy dialogue springs - and the work of the soul that cultivates them.
Shows how to enhance the work of the soul by engaging the world around us.
Lays out practical guidelines for dialogue and how they work in an imperfect world.
Includes extended anecdotes of dialogue in action, from resolutions of interpersonal conflict to difficult dialogues on some of the most divisive issues of our age.
Uses provocative questions at the end of each chapter to stimulate group discussion and individual reflection.

7. My Almost Certainly Real Imaginary Jesus A Memoir (Large Print 16pt) - Kelly Barth

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

The idea of Jesus as an imaginary friend tiny enough to live in her heart comforted Barth as a child and would continue to do so throughout her life. His unqualified acceptance of her emerging sexuality so clashed with the fundamentalist church's stand on homosexuality that she wondered if she could trust his friendship. Instead of embracing her friend's encouragement, Barth found herself venturing into the very heart of enemy territory and the church's false promises of altar calls and sexual cures. For years, she lingered there until all Imaginary Jesus had been trying to tell her about herself and about life becomes too compelling to ignore. My Almost Certainly Real Imaginary Jesus speaks to this disconnect between the radical and very human Jesus of history and the church's supernatural savior. At once heartbreaking and hilarious, this book gives voice to the many LGBT people who have searched for sanctuary in a church that has largely rejected them and, in so doing, departed from the teachings of the Jesus it claims to follow.

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Unleashed by Hitler in 1942, the German Tiger tank was by far the most powerful tank ever built at the time. The 60 - ton monster could destroy any Allied tank from more than a mile away, and it soon became the most feared tank in the world. Desperate to discover the secret technology used in the Tiger's manufacture, Winston Churchill close a brilliant young army engineer, Major Doug Lidderdale, as his special agent. In a late - night briefing in the subterranean War Rooms under Whitehall he ordered him: 'Go catch me a tiger'. Doug did not hesitate and by February 1943 was facing Rommel's desert army. After several unsuccessful and hair - raising efforts to bag a Tiger on the battlefields of Tunisia, Doug and his team put their lives on the line in a terrifying, close - hand shoot - out with the five - man crew of a Tiger, capturing the tank intact. The morale boost to the Allies was such that both Churchill and King George VI flew to Tunis to examine the Tiger first hand. But the Germans were not finished with Doug. They did not want the secrets of the Tiger benefitting the Allies' sabotage attempts, and constant attacks by the Luftwaffe and U - boats pursued Doug and his men on every step of the journey back to England. But eventually, by October 1943, the Tiger - number 131 - was delivered to London and gifted to Churchill, who had it placed on London's Horse Guards Parade. Lidderdale went on to use some of the Tiger technology to develop war machines for the D - Day landings and was promoted to Colonel. Tiger 131 is now kept at Bovington Tank Museum and is the only working Tiger in the world.

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £21.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

They draw from the great success of HaLevi's Congregation Shirat Hayam in Greater Boston to show what is possible when divine spirit is central to the Jewish experience. They identify the difference between a living synagogue and a dying synagogue and offer methods for reviving Jewish spiritual centers, federations, Jewish community centers, Jewish institutions and synagogues that serve as the heart of the Jewish tradition. They offer practical strategies for sustaining and expanding transformation, including tips for providing impassioned leadership, inspired programming and inviting sacred spaces.
