            'They kill us, they crucify us, they throw us to beasts in the arena, they sew our lips together and watch us starve. They bugger children in front of fathers and violate men before the eyes of their wives. The temple priests flay us openly in the streets and the Judeans stone us.... We are hunted everywhere and we are hunted by everyone. We are despised, yet we grow. We are tortured and crucified and yet we flourish. We are hated and still we multiply. Why is that? You must wonder, how is it we survive?' Christos Tsiolkas' stunning new novel Damascus is a work of soaring ambition and achievement, of immense power and epic scope, taking as its subject nothing less than events surrounding the birth and establishment of the Christian church. Based around the gospels and letters of St Paul, and focusing on characters one and two generations on from the death of Christ, as well as Paul (Saul) himself, Damascus nevertheless explores the themes that have always obsessed Tsiolkas as a writer: class, religion, masculinity, patriarchy, colonisation, refugees; the ways in which nations, societies, communities, families and individuals are united and divided - it's all here, the contemporary and urgent questions, perennial concerns made vivid and visceral. In Damascus, Tsiolkas has written a masterpiece of imagination and transformation: an historical novel of immense power and an unflinching dissection of doubt and faith, tyranny and revolution, and cruelty and sacrifice.

            David Marr's explosive bestseller, now expanded and fully updated. In March this year, the nation's most powerful Catholic, Cardinal George Pell, was jailed for child sexual assault. In The Prince, David Marr investigates the man, his career and his ultimate fall. Marr reveals a ...cleric at ease with power and aggressive in asserting the prerogatives of the Vatican. He charts Pell's response - as a man, a priest, an archbishop and a prince of the church - to the scandal that has engulfed the Catholic world- the sexual abuse of children. This is the story of a cleric torn by the contest between his church and its victims, and slow to realise that the Catholic Church cannot, in the end, escape secular scrutiny. Behind it all was Pell's own terrible secret, which was uncovered and judged in a trial that convulsed the nation. The Prince is a portrait of hypocrisy and ambition, set against a backdrop of terrible suffering and an ancient institution in turmoil.

            This new book by Dr Ian Guthridge, historian and former Jesuit priest, presents a fresh, frank and no-holds-barred debate about Religion. Is it Faith, or Fact, or Fantasy? Indeed, do we need Religion any more - or is it simply past its use-by date, and something we would be well ...rid of. Timely and relevant, these questions often underpin headlines in the Media. For example, increasing revelations of child abuse by clerics, with Church authorities sweeping these under the carpet; controversies over Gay Maniage, the ordination of women priests, and the use of taxpayer money to fund religious schools; conflicts between Religion and Science over Creation and Evolution; the rival claims of Jews and Muslims to the Holy Land and, here at home, growing concerns about increasing numbers of Muslim migrants from countries hostile to the West; questions about whether Islam is an essentially peaceful religion or a peaceful religion hi-jacked by extremists ; and the challenge presented by Richard Dawkins and the late Christopher Hitchens that God is a Delusion and Religion has been a source of endless divisions and conflicts, and should therefore be got rid of altogether; so has Religion really passed its use-by date - or are we in danger of throwing out the baby with the bath-water? In this book, Guthridge approaches Religion from an unusually wide perspective. For having been a believer throughout the first half of his life - with a Doctorate in Theology from the Gregorian University in Rome - he knows what Religion looks like and feels like from the inside; but, having abandoned Established Christianity throughout the second half of his life, he knows what Religion looks like and feels like from the outside. And, given this double perspective from both sides of the equation, the book launches a strong and uninhibited presentation of both the Case for the Prosecution of Religion, and the Case for its Defence - examining each of these on the basis of evidence, rather than on wil

            An intimate, deeply reported account of the women who made a shocking decision- to leave their comfortable lives behind and join the Islamic State. In early 2014, the Islamic State clinched its control of Raqqa in Syria. Baghdadi, the leader of ISIS, urged Muslims around the worl...d to come join the caliphate. Having witnessed the brutal oppression of the Assad regime in Syria, and moved to fight for justice, thousands of men and women heeded his call. At the heart of this story is a cast of unforgettable young women who responded. Emma, from Germany; Sharmeena from Bethnal Green, London; Nour from Tunis- these were women - some still in high school - from urban families, some with university degrees and bookshelves filled with novels by Jane Austen and Dan Brown; many with cosmopolitan dreams of travel and adventure. But instead of finding a land of justice and piety, they found themselves trapped within the most brutal terrorist regime of the twenty-first century, a world of chaos and upheaval and violence. What is the line between victim and collaborator? How do we judge these women who both suffered and inflicted intense pain? What role is there for Muslim women in the West? In what is bound to be a modern classic of narrative non-fiction, Moaveni takes us into the school hallways of London, kitchen tables in Germany, the coffee shops in Tunis, the caliphate's OB/GYN and its 'Guest House for Young Widows' - where wives of the fallen waited to be remarried - to demonstrate that the problem called terrorism is a far more complex, political, and deeply relatable one than we generally admit.

            Living Religion, fifth edition, explores the expression and practice of the world's various belief systems that have arisen as people have sought answers to the ultimate questions of human existence. Religion, however one defines it, is complex. It can be a cohesive force in soci...ety and, at the same time, a source of division. But the investigation of these different aspects is exciting. This new edition is the complete solution for New South Wales Studies of Religion. It retains all the features that has made it a leading title for SOR I and II but has been updated to include recent statistical information and images, recent developments in the major traditions and a fully revised chapter on Religion and Peace. It also features a suite of teacher and student resources to support extension learning, preparation for HSC exams and teacher planning. Living Religion maintains the authors' commitment to exploring the lived expressions of religion in Australia and the need to recognise the place and significance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders beliefs and spiritualities. As a result, this book incorporates current statistical information, images and photographs, weblinks and recent developments in the major traditions as they respond to the changing nature of society in Australia and beyond. *Complimentary access to NelsonNet is available to teachers who use the accompanying student book as a core resource in their classroom. Contact your education consultant for access codes and conditions.
