To mark the 40th anniversary of the Uniting Church in Australia (June 22nd) Geoff Thompson has produced audio files of the six sections of the final chapter of his book, Disturbing Much, Disturbing Many: Theology Provoked by the Basis of Union.
MSP recently published Dr John Collin’s book on the problems of clericalism and the understanding of Ministry which is often cited these days as being at the heart of the crisis in the Church.
Dr Claire Renkin (who heads the Department of Christian Thought and History at the Yarra Theological Union at the University of Divinity in Victoria) gave the address at the book launch and we link to it here as it provides a good overview of why this book is valuable and timely.
To commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, Rev Dr Mark Worthing has released a new book entitled Martin Luther: a Wild Boar in the Lord’s Vineyard which explores his passionate and fiery character and introduces us to a colourful cast of friends and enemies, explaining the complex politics of church and empire.
Here is what Rev Dr Lynn Arnold, former Premier of South Australia, had to say about it.

In The Melbourne Anglican Mark Lindsay says of Keith Mascord’s new book Faith Without Fear, “Mascord prizes open some of the most treasured, and yet at the same time contested, assumptions of conservative Christianity… [Faith Without Fear] provides a ray of hope to those whose own, or whose families’, lives and faith have been shattered by an inflexible and unforgiving hermeneutic.”
