            A Timeline of Global Christianity (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            This timeline comprises one thousand significant dates for global Christianity. It includes events across all inhabited continents (and also in Antarctica and outer space), emphasizing those occurring in the non-Western world. The detailed annotations on each date are intended as... provocative ignition points to spark historical curiosity, functioning as launchpads into further exploration in global Christianity. For example: -739: What did the finding of the Rotas-Sator palindrome on the walls of an eighth-century Sudanese cave dwelling indicate? -1346: Who were the mysterious Christians in the Javanese Royal Court of Majapahit? -1969: Why was the secret communion on the Moon hushed up by NASA? -1992: Why was Paraguay the only Latin American country to include an indigenous language as a national language? Since previous histories of Christianity usually have a European or North American perspective, students will find this book useful for its global coverage. It can be used in three ways. Firstly, it can be used chronologically as a continuous global timeline. It can also be used as a sampling of Christianity in each country, or as an index of significant figures in the history of global Christianity. Each section is cross-referenced to the timeline, making it a valuable resource for historical study.

            As a colossal statue takes shape in Renaissance Florence, the lives of a master sculptor and a struggling painter become stunningly intertwined. Florence, 1500. Fresco painter Jacopo Torni longs to make his mark in the world. But while his peers enjoy prestigious commissions, his... meager painting jobs are all earmarked to pay down gambling debts. When Jacopo hears of a competition to create Florence's greatest sculpture, he pins all his hopes on a collaboration with his boyhood companion, Michelangelo Buonarroti. But will the frustrated artist ever emerge from the shadow of his singularly gifted friend? From the author of THE PAINTER'S APPRENTICE and THE GONDOLA MAKER comes a gorgeously crafted, immersive tale of Renaissance Italy. Based on a true story.

            WINNER of the Nonfiction Award 2020 Adelaide Festival Awards for Literature WINNER of the 2019 NSW Premier's History Award: Australian History Prize WINNER of the 2019 Prime Minister's Australian History Prize WINNER of the 2019 CHASS Australia Book Prize Australian Christian Boo...k of the Year in 2018 In this multi-award-winning history of the Bible in Australia, Meredith Lake gets under the skin of a text that's been wrestled with, preached and tattooed, and believed to be everything from a resented imposition to the very Word of God. A must-read for non-believers and believers alike, The Bible in Australia explores how in the hands of Bible-bashers, immigrants, suffragists, evangelists, unionists, writers, artists and Indigenous Australians, the Bible has played a defining and contested role in this country. At a time when public discussion of religion is deeply polarised, this multi-award-winning book offers an innovative and surprising new perspective on religion and society. This new edition, including a preface that discusses the life of the book since its 2018 publication, shows that in the hands of writers, artists, settlers, immigrants, Bible-bashers, wowsers, evangelists, suffragettes, unionists, Indigenous activists and many others - the Bible has played a defining role in Australia. 'Stunning, refreshing and original.' - Julia Baird 'Vivid story-telling and impossible to put down.' - Mark McKenna 'A book of remarkable originality...a ground-breaking cultural and social history.' Judges' comments, 2019 NSW Premier's History Award: Australian History Prize 'An endlessly fascinating book...Lake brings a generosity of both mind and spirit to this vast story.' - Michael McGirr, Sydney Morning Herald

            Anthony 'Harry' Moffitt spent more than 20 years in the SAS. His decades of service and his multiple tours in East Timor, Iraq and Afghanistan made him one of the regiment's most experienced and respected figures. Alongside the SAS, Harry's other lifetime love is cricket. An impr...ovised game of backyard cricket was often the circuit-breaker Harry and his team needed after the tension of operations. Recognizing the effect of the game on his fellow soldiers, he began a tradition of organising games and matches wherever he was sent, whether it was in the mountains of East Timor with a fugitive rebel leader, or on the dusty streets of Baghdad, or in exposed Forward Operating Bases in the hills of Afghanistan. Soldiers, locals and even visiting politicians played in these spontaneous yet often bridge-building games. As part of the tradition Harry also started to take a cricket bat with him on operational tours, eleven of them in total across his career. They'd travel with him, often go outside the wire with him, and end up signed by those he met or fought alongside. These eleven bats have formed the basis for Harry's extraordinary memoir. It's a book about combat, and what it takes to serve in one of the world's most elite formations. It's a book about the toll that war takes on soldiers and their loved ones. And it's a book about the healing power of cricket, and how a game can cross boundaries and break down borders even in the most desperate of circumstances.
