To be a Pilgrim

In To be a Pilgrim: A Reflective Guide to the Holy Land, Bishop Bradly Billings takes us on a journey—a pilgrimage.

Through his reflections and meditations based on his own experiences leading pilgrimages through the Holy Land, Bishop Brad evokes the sights, sounds and smells as he follows in the footsteps of Jesus Christ. Drawing from Scripture and from history both ancient and modern, each stop along the way is brought to life as the reader is led from the humble birthplace of Jesus in Bethlehem, through scenes of his baptism in the Jordan and travels through Galilee with his disciples, to his death and resurrection in Jerusalem.

With prayers and readings for the Stations of the Cross, a compendium of scriptural references related to each place, and practical information intended to guide the would-be and future pilgrim, To be a Pilgrim: A Reflective Guide to the Holy Land is an indispensable companion.

For God, King and Country

During the Great War of 1914-1918, the Church of England (or Anglican Church) in Australia was prominent in support of the war at home and abroad. Based on memorials, parish records, newspaper archives, songs and poetry of the war years, and other primary sources, For God, King and Country is a contribution to the social history of Melbourne, and Australia, told through the lens of the then strong churches, and the people who formed community in them.

‘This is an excellent book. It is a tale of sustained sacrifice made by Australians from Melbourne on distant battlefields in a bloody and brutal war whose centenary we are currently marking… There are so many people in this book whose stories are relayed with gentle sensitivity.’ – Rev Dr Bruce Kaye, The Melbourne Anglican

The Apocalyptic Heart

Is the Book of Revelation the biblical book for the twentieth-first century due to the growing interest in apocalyptic? A fresh approach is needed to help access its symbolic mysteries. The Apocalyptic Heart takes its inspiration from the lived faith of refugee communities and the Orthodox Church and makes Revelation’s message of victory and the restoration of justice vital for today.

This book on Revelation, though well-grounded in current scholarship, familiar with the canons and principles of biblical interpretation, and meticulous throughout in explaining the historical and cultural background in which the text was produced, is not an academic exercise, but, primarily, a spiritual and reflective endeavour, grounded in a lived faith which informs it on almost every page.
