New way to access Jubilee Centre podcasts photograph

New way to access Jubilee Centre podcasts

Jonathan Tame, April 2013

Price: FREE

Unfortunately the media company which was uploading our podcasts to iTunes is no longer working with audio files. As a result there are currently two Jubilee Centre accounts in iTunes, and all podcasts up to the end of 2011 are on the old account, which is accessible here:

https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/jubilee-centre/id319798824

Until we have resolved this problem, please access all pre-2012 podcasts directly by using the above link, as the buttons on the individual resource pages will send you to the new Jubilee Centre account, which only has the most recent podcasts.

We apologise for this inconvenience, and hope you can still find the recording you are looking for!

God, Justice, and Society: Aspects of Law and Legality in the Bible photograph

God, Justice, and Society: Aspects of Law and Legality in the Bible

Jonathan Burnside , January 2011

Price: £19.99

Out now - EXCLUSIVE to Jubilee Centre!

What is the real meaning of 'an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth'? Where did the idea for the 'Jubilee 2000' and 'Drop the Debt' campaigns come from? And what, really, are the 'Ten Commandments'? Exploring aspects of law in the Bible, from the patriarchal narratives in the Hebrew Bible through to the trials of Jesus in the New Testament, Dr Burnside's 584-page book

  • Explores the subject of biblical law, which is foundational for understanding Western civilisation and the history of Western law
  • Discusses how biblical law works in relation to different areas including the environment, property, social welfare, homicide, theft, and marriage
  • Challenges popular misunderstandings about the story of Mount Sinai and the giving of the Ten Commandments, as well as the interpretation of specific verses such as 'an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.'

This softback edition is available exclusively from the Jubilee Centre. For the hardback edition, visit OUP's website. A holistic teaching website to support this book, containing a downloadable study guide, podcasts and other resources, is available at www.seekjustice.co.uk

Free to Live: Expressing the love of Christ in an age of debt  photograph

Free to Live: Expressing the love of Christ in an age of debt

Guy Brandon, April 2010

Price: £8.50

Jubilee Centre is delighted to introduce its life-changing new book:
 

'This important and counter-cultural book demands nothing less than loving Christ in all we do.' (Rev Richard Cunningham, Director of UCCF: The Christian Unions)

'If we can put its message into practice, we will make a difference not just to our lives but the lives of many others.' (Noel Richards, songwriter and worship leader)
 

In these economically constrained times, the Bible's emphasis on freedom and love offers both relief from the burdens we carry and a radical new way to live. The release from slavery and debt that lay at the heart of Israel's cycle of Jubilee celebrations reveals that the whole of the Law and Prophets, as fulfilled by Christ, is about loving God and loving our neighbour. But in practice it's difficult not to be influenced by consumerism and individualism. How do we guard against this? How can we apply our faith in practical ways? What disciplines may we put in place to help us worship God in every area of our lives?

Encompassing the breadth of all the research that the Jubilee Centre has undertaken over more than quarter of a century, and serving as a companion volume to Jubilee Manifesto, this is a very practical guide to applying our faith to every area of our lives - not just the most obvious ones but also the thousands of seemingly trivial financial, emotional, spiritual and relational exchanges with which our days are filled.

Christianity, Climate Change, and Sustainable Living (US edition) photograph

Christianity, Climate Change, and Sustainable Living (US edition)

Nick Spencer, Robert White and Virginia Vroblesky , December 2009

Price: £9.99

Amounts and patterns of consumption and production in the West have reached a level that cannot be maintained. Lifestyles based on our present way of creating and using energy are no longer environmentally sustainable-and are threatening the health and well-being of both planet and people. Our activities and the policies that shape them need to change.

In light of those realities, Spencer, White, and Vroblesky offer serious Christian engagement with the emerging issue of Sustainable Consumption and Production. They analyze the scientific, sociological, economic, and theological thinking that makes a Christian response to these trends imperative and distinctive. And they offer practical conclusions that explore and explain what can be done at the personal, community, national, and international levels to ensure that next generations will have the resources necessary for life.

Firmly rooted in the good news of the Christian faith, this is, above all, a constructive and hopeful book that offers a realistic vision of what the future could and should look like. It can be ordered for just $9.99 (instead of its retail price of $16.95) via ChristianBook.com.

The original UK edition of the book can be ordered via the Jubilee Centre website, from where you can also download the accompanying Bible studies.

Price: £9.50

Votewise Now! Helping Christians engage with the issues photograph

Votewise Now! Helping Christians engage with the issues

Rose Lynas (ed.), August 2009

Price: £4.49

'What this book may call us to is the revitalisation of politics as a whole.' (Dr Peter Selby, former Bishop of Worcester)

Votewise Now! argues that politics should be first and foremost about right relationships, and that the best way to 'do' politics is to engage with the things that really concern people.

Containing ten concise chapters written by experts in their field, this helpful volume examines 'the most important issues facing Britain today'. After outlining the key debates within each, Votewise Now! turns to biblical teaching for a Christian perspective, and then offers a series of principles against which readers may evaluate party promises and so vote wisely.  The book concludes with a Christian MP from each of the UK's three main political parties responding to the question, 'Why should a Christian vote for your party?'

Don't miss the accompanying short video and additional group discussion materials!
