Making nothing happen : five poets explore faith and spirituality by Gavin D'Costa( )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,076 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Making Nothing Happen is a conversation between five poet-theologians who are broadly within the Christian tradition - Nicola Slee, Ruth Shelton, Mark Pryce, Eleanor Nesbitt and Gavin D'Costa. Together they form The Diviners - a group which has been meeting together for a number of years for poetry, and theological and literary reflection. Each poet offers an illuminating reflection on how they understand the relation between poetry and faith, rooting their reflections in their own writing, and illustrating discussion with a selection of their own poems. The poets open up issues for deeper exploration and reflection, including: the nature of creativity and the distinction between divine and human creation; the creative process as exploration, epiphany and revelation; the forging of identity through writing; ways in which the arts reflect, challenge and dialogue with faith, and faith can inform and challenge the arts; power and voice in poetry and faith; and ways in which race, gender and culture interact with and shape poetic and theological discourse. This book will be of interest to poets and theologians, to all who read poetry and are interested in the connections between literature and faith, to those seeking inspiration for preaching, liturgy and pastoral care, and to those committed to the practice and nurturing of a contemplative attitude to life in which profound attention and respect are offered to words and to the creative Word at work
Pool of life : the autobiography of a Punjabi agony aunt by Kailāsha Jī Purī( )

11 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This life story of Kailash Puri, a Punjabi author and advice columnist, connects the narrative of her life to the history of Punjabi diaspora and themes in Sikh studies. Beginning with her memories of childhood in West Punjab, the work evokes the rural customs and religious practices consistent with recent scholarship on Punjabi religion rather than with the currently dominant Sikh discourse of a religion sharply distinguished from Hindu society. An arranged marriage at the age of 15 to scientist Gopal Puri brought Kailash ever-widening horizons as they moved from India to London. Through such

Brill's encyclopedia of Sikhism( Book )

in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sikhism is one of the most important religious traditions of South Asian origin. Sikhs are historically connected to the Punjab region in South Asia, but their religious traditions are transnational and have a worldwide presence. The study of their history and traditions has become a significant field of scholarship and research, but no academic, authoritative, and up-to-date reference work exists. Brill?s 'Encyclopedia of Sikhism' aims to make available in-depth critical scholarship on all the main aspects of the Sikh traditions in a number of original essays written by the world's foremost scholars on Sikhs and Sikh traditions. The encyclopedia is thematic and seeks to present a balanced and impartial view of the Sikh traditions in all their multiplicity and as both historical and contemporary institutions. The articles, published in two volumes, focus on history, literature, and the rich social landscape of the Sikh community; their practices, places, arts, and performances; specialists and leadership; migration both within South Asia and beyond; and contemporary issues and relations
Guru Nanak by Eleanor M Nesbitt( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Guru nanak's significance as an inspirational guide to life's meaning extends beyond his time (five hundred years ago) and his gepgraphical setting (South Asia). His teachings are the basis of a world religion Sikhism - a world religion both in the sense that Sikhs now live in substantial numbers in all the inhabited continents and in the sense that what he had to say is challenging and reassuring for people of every cultural background. It is for this reason that the authors, the editor, and the publisher decided to produce a book which would bring Guru Nanak to a new generatio of readers. We decided to do this, despite Guru Nanak's observation, at a time when the present day proliferation of publications aws unimaginable, that "One may read cartloads of books ... but only true understanding of the One ultimately counts; all else is the babble of the ego."
