The 2015 Gasson Lectures (HARDBACK)
A$34.95
$USD 25.51
In these Gasson Lectures, Frank Brennan addresses various contested contemporary issues such as church-state relations, physician assisted suicide and national border protection. He writes, ‘I hope that these lectures can help persons of all faiths and none maintain what Pope John Paul II, when addressing the Italian Parliament, called “a convinced and pondered trust in the heritage of virtues and values handed down by your forebears”. In these lectures I have drawn much inspiration from Pope Francis who travelled to the island of Lampedusa to speak boldly and prophetically about the plight of asylum seekers coming across the Mediterranean Sea in search of new life. Before offering his blessing and casting a wreath on the waters, Francis asked, “Who is responsible for the blood of these brothers and sisters of ours?” In these lectures, I seek to draw on my own religious tradition to answer that question to the satisfaction of persons of all faiths and none, and in the many precarious situations in which people find themselves, especially at the borders of life and of nation states.’ Learn More

The People's Quest for Leadership in Church and State (HARDBACK)
A$34.95
$USD 25.51
In these reflections on leadership in Church and State, Frank Brennan states ideals and proposes practical challenges in addresses ranging from his non-partisan ‘Light on the Hill’ address to the Australian Labor Party after the 2013 federal election to his address to the representatives of the world’s Jesuit universities. He reflects on the leadership of past prime ministers Gough Whitlam and Malcolm Fraser. He offers insights into tested leadership with his ANZAC Centenary Address in the Harvard Memorial Chapel. He challenges church leaders to be more transparent and compassionate in their responses before the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. He draws inspiration from leaders like Pope Francis, El Salvador’s Archbishop Oscar Romero and Redfern’s Fr Ted Kennedy. Frank writes with the conviction that we the people are seeking spiritual and political leaders who can inspire us to dedicate ourselves to taking up the burdens of the fallen in the Great War and, with the same high courage and steadfastness with which they went into battle, to setting our hands to the tasks they left unfinished (some of which they could not possibly have imagined a century ago), and giving our utmost to make the world a better and happier place for all people, through whatever means are open to us. As well as being bloodied and tested, our new leaders need to be nurtured, encouraged, and espoused. They need strong moral contours to navigate the modern demands of leadership when taking on the big issues like climate change and entrenched inequality. Learn More

Kaleidoscope of Pieces (HARDBACK)
A$44.95
$USD 32.81
“Kaleidoscope of Pieces opens up fresh insights into readings offering pastoral and transformative support to those whose self-identification is not heterosexual. These essays do what good theological investigation requires. They both confront and challenge through scholarly investigation. Each essay opens a window, or perhaps to bring more nuanced colour and texture, a different view, like looking though a kaleidoscope, to highlight more of the theological, spiritual and ecclesiological depths in relation to human sexuality, and to homosexuality in particular. The Church as a whole is called in Christ to unfold completely as we live into the life to which we have been called. These essays help us to do just that.”

Rt Rev’d Kay Goldsworthy, Bishop of Gippsland.
