Our Bookshop strives to provide you with a wide range of books and resources that cover all areas of church life.
Here you will find resources to:
- Increase your understanding of the Uniting Church in Australia
- Engage with its mission and ministries
- Inspire worship and preaching for all ages
- Encourage intergenerational study, faith sharing, discipleship and leadership.
Our goal is to encourage all of us to engage in an “informed faith”, to recognise that we are all gifted and called to ministry and that our ministries are part of the ministry of Christ (Basis of Union).
Accidental Saints, by Nadia Bolz-Weber
“Tattooed, angry and profane, this former standup comic turned pastor stubbornly, sometimes hilariously, resists the God she feels called to serve.
But God keeps showing up in the least likely of people – a church-loving agnostic, a drag queen, a felonious bishop, and a gun-toting member of the NRA…
This unforgettable account of their faltering steps toward wholeness will ring true for believer and sceptic alike.”
The Church as Salt , Becoming the Community That Jesus Speaks About, by Sally Douglas
“With scholarly insight into the biblical text, early church writers and theology, as well as her pastoral experience in ministry, Sally Douglas invites us to wrestle afresh with the metaphor of being salt.
Here we discover a call into discipleship that is free from the success criteria of consumerist culture and free from nostalgia.”
Pray Without Ceasing, A Life of Prayer, by Geoffrey Lilburne
Following on from his first book Joy Interrupted, Geoffrey Lilburne takes us on a journey through his life of prayer. “It is honest, recalling failures, distractions and difficulties as well as celebrations and successes.
It is the story of a journey that many will find familiar, inviting, encouraging. Above all, at its heart, a reminder that it is the free gift of the Holy Spirit that works in each of us.”
Fresh Expressions of People Over Property, Scripture, Stories, and Strategies to Help People of Faith Reimagine Their Space, by by Audrey Warren, Kenneth H. Carter Jr.
“Property is a sign of how invested people are in a community”. For decades participation and revenue in churches has declined but keeping them fit to use takes priority and focus is taken off mission.
The church is not a building, yet church buildings have become sacred spaces. Here, complex questions about Sacred Space and Mobile Missions are discussed along with story, scripture and strategy to help churches be faithful to their people and the property they have been given.
