In a world full of self-help books and endless social media influence, your life can feel pressed in many directions. I don't know about you, but I had so many unanswered questions. There were things I tried hard to manage and I'd do well for a while. But my best efforts would quickly change. I considered myself strong in faith, but often felt overwhelmed with the emotions that life brought me. I loved Jesus, but felt distant from the church because of things I witnessed. I craved a deeper connection with God and others. Let's face it, the world around us desires authenticity. People crave truth, but life can be full of chaos and evil. Why does heaven seem so far away? I served God my entire life, but it wasn't until recently that He showed me how real His presence is. He woke me up out of a slumber I didn't even know I was in. For the first time in my life, I can walk in full authority of faith. I know how to combat fear. And, I have discovered that God's will for us on earth is to encounter heaven here and now. Closeness with Him wasn't just meant for people like Abraham and David. It is meant for us all. This book is all about the journey God took me on that gave me the most incredible joy and peace I have ever known in my life. His presence is tangible in my daily life. I pray that by reading this book, you too will experience His incredible love. And, learn how to use the power of heaven here on earth.

Over the past two decades, the world has witnessed alarming environmental degradation--climate change, the loss of biodiversity, and the pollution of natural resources--together with a failure to implement environmental policies and an ever-widening gap between rich and poor. During this same period, one religious leader has discerned the signs of the times and called people's attention to our dire ecological and social situation: His All Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, the worldwide leader of the Orthodox Churches. As this new volume of his writings reveals, Patriarch Bartholomew has continually proclaimed the primacy of spiritual values in determining environmental ethics and action. For him, the predicament we face is not primarily ecological but in fact spiritual: The ultimate aim is to see all things in God, and God in all things. On Earth as in Heaven demonstrates just why His All Holiness has been dubbed the "Green Patriarch" by former Vice President Al Gore (recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize for his environmental activism) and the media. This third and final volume of the spiritual leader's selected writings showcases his statements on environmental degradation, global warming, and climate change. It contains numerous speeches and interviews in various circumstances, including ecological symposia, academic seminars, and regional and international events, over the first twenty years of his ministry. This volume also encompasses a selection of pastoral letters and exhortations--ecclesiastical, ecumenical, and academic--by His All Holiness for occasions such as Easter and Christmas, honorary doctorates, and academic awards. On Earth as in Heaven is a rich collection, essential for religious scholars, those looking for a deeper understanding of Orthodox Christianity, and anyone concerned with the environmental and social issues we face today.

"Practical theology" has recently emerged as a distinctive approach to the theological task. It is concerned with the way theological task. It is concerned with the way theological activity engages wider social, cultural, and ecclesial issues. Rather than seeing itself as a "branch" of theology, practical theology is a distinctive theological, sensibility that highlights the ever-present need to "read the signs of the times" in the light of the Gospel message and the Christian tradition. Veling begins his work by sketching the main contours of practical theology. He proceeds to explore some of its key elements (interpretation, context, scripture, tradition) before reflecting on the deeper role of theology in church and society.

On Earth as in Heaven

This is an engaging narrative of the history behind and reception of the Lord’s Prayer; it illustrates how a text’s reception may help us explore and understand the multivalent meaning of the text itself.

Convinced that we can no longer have direct, unmediated access to the sense of Jesus’s prayer but must account for the history of its “effects,” David Clark seeks to trace the meaning of one of Christianity’s most repeated, and thus most “effective” texts through the early centuries of the faith. Clark begins by arguing that the prayer’s original context was in a revival of Jewish prayer, then sets it in the literary context of Gospels that, he argues, represented Jesus as recapitulating Israel’s testing in the wilderness in his own temptation. He then traces the prayer’s meaning within the narratives of Matthew and Luke and in the Didache, then examines the first full commentary on the prayer, that of Tertullian in the third century ce. Clark attends to the evolution of ideas and themes embodied in the prayer and of the understanding of prayer itself across epic transitions, from Judaism to the teaching of Jesus, from Jesus to the Gospels, and from the Gospels to earliest self-consciously “catholic” Christianity. This is an engaging narrative of the history behind and reception of the Lord’s Prayer; it illustrates how a text’s reception may help us explore and understand the multivalent meaning of the text itself.

This book describes what I have experienced God to be but this is not necessarily the actual truth. This is the truth, according to my experiences. This is how I felt God. This is how I heard God.

The second I was diagnosed with cancer, I knew God was telling me my old life was over. I knew God wasn't messing around this time - it was time to listen. My life had been spiraling out of control after I left my marriage. I wanted desperately to be happy but didn't know how. I knew God was using cancer to get my attention. I refused to go through cancer and miss the opportunity to heal my life. I didn't know what was about to happen but I committed to allow God to mould my life into what he wanted it to be. I was tired of failing. I was tired of needing. I was tired of wanting. I wanted meaning. I wanted purpose. I wanted to be happy. It was an incredibly challenging and difficult journey, but as God pruned me of everything in my life, I began to see the true beauty around me. Cancer wasn't ruining my life - cancer was saving my life. Instead of praying to God to take my cancer away, I thanked God for giving me cancer. Cancer was saving my life and instead of fighting it, I accepted it. Luckily, I did not know how much moulding and shaping and pruning God was going to do. There were so many days I was tempted to give up but I always hung on, knowing God was with me. I knew God was for me so I never, ever gave up. I continue to work for God and as he opens my heart and my eyes, I feel deeper love and see higher truth. At the end of 2019, I had felt so many pulls from God that I finally surrendered to him. I committed to spending a year with him. I promised God that I was going to listen to him and follow him and be used by him. I told God that I would spend a year with him and fulfill any plan he had for me. Well, here I am on October 18, writing the introduction to the most incredible book I have ever read. This book is a result of me asking questions. This book is a result of me asking questions about God to the only one who can answer them - God. I didn't like the answers I got from others but the answers I continue to receive from God make sense. They don't make logical sense but they make magical sense. They make loving sense. They make sense in only a way that God's answers can - they feel like deeper love and higher truth. This book is a result, not only of me not giving up but me doing what I do best - asking questions. This book describes what I have experienced God to be but this is not necessarily the actual truth. This is the truth, according to my experiences. This is how I felt God. This is how I heard God. I want you to read this book and then find your own answers, with God. I don't want to teach you what I believe God to be, I want to show you how to find God, on your own. I want us all to find God so we can share who this deeper love and higher truth version of God is, according to our individual experiences. I asked how and now I'd like to show you how - how to find more God! This book had a purpose and that purpose was to answer the questions I had been asking God. I feel like God wrote this book for me, through me. I love this book. Every single word in it feels like it came straight from God. I put my pen down and six days later, this book was written. I want to help the world find more God, one breath at a time. What you call God doesn't matter. How you see God doesn't matter. What matters is you finding God, in every moment you can. God lives in the space between our thoughts - we get to choose to live in our thoughts or to live in love. Every breath is a gift. Stay here, in this moment, with God. Find God, find love. BREATHE Love, Chantelle Rodgers

With the 2015 publication of Pope Francis’s encyclical Laudato Si’, many people of faith have found themselves challenged to seek new ways of addressing serious ecological questions — issues essential to the flourishing of all creatures and not just human beings. This volume brings together fifteen select scholars to consider pressing contemporary environmental concerns through the lens of Catholic theology. Drawing from the early church fathers and other authoritative voices in the Christian tradition, the contributors to On Earth as It Is in Heaven show how ancient, creedal Christianity offers significant insights into our current ecological dilemmas and speaks powerfully about what it means for us today to care well for God’s good creation. CONTRIBUTORS and TOPICS Robert Louis Wilken on honoring centipedes and toads — and all of God’s created works Christopher J. Thompson on not reducing creatures to “resources” solely to be “used” Steven A. Long on understanding the created order as a participation in the divine, eternal law Marie George on human stewardship of creation as both kingship and kinship Matthew Levering on “be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth” — a good idea? Dawn M. Nothwehr, OSF, on sustainability from a Franciscan perspective John A. Cuddeback on land use and household stewardship Faith Pawl on animal flourishing and suffering Paul M. Blowers on evolutionary theory and the promise of restoration for all creation Christopher A. Franks on Job, poverty, gratitude, and “a gentle life” Jonathan J. Sanford on how Aristotle and Maritain illuminate our obligation to care for creation Paige E. Hochschild on contemplating rather than dominating nature, building on Augustine and George Grant Chris Killheffer on how monastic sources help us rethink gluttony and its remedies David Vincent Meconi, SJ, on the wonderful, awe-filled interrelationship between creatures and their Creator Esther Mary Nickel, RSM, on the liturgy as the space in which all creation is consecrated before the cross of Christ
