Brown Neil
In stock
In a wonderfully engaging manner, Neil Brown mines literature, the sciences, and the living tradition of faith to illuminate our present-day world, to identify its joys and hopes, as well as its griefs and anguish. Although the darkness of our world is menacing, Brown’s focus on ‘love’, ‘mystery’, and ‘presence’ encourages us to a renewed faith in the God who is source and fulfilment of our longings, as well as the heart of what unites us.

Huia Come Home

J Ruka
In stock
Huia e huia, tangata kotahi! Huia, your destiny is to bring everyone together! Māori proverb Once the sacred guardian of New Zealand’s native forests, the huia was a symbol of the land’s unique beauty and spirituality. The rare bird’s tragic extinction in the early 1900s represents a shot to the heart of Aotearoa and is a potent metaphor for a country’s conflicted history. Using the story of the untimely extinction of the huia, Jay Ruka offers a fresh perspective on the narrative of Aotearoa; a tale of two cultures, warring worldviews, and the things we lost in translation. Revisiting the early missionaries, the transformative message of the gospel and the cultural missteps of the Treaty of Waitangi, Huia Come Home invites us to reconnect with the unique story offered by the indigenous Māori lens. In relearning the history that lies in the soil of Aotearoa, we might just find a shared hope for the future and a recovery of national treasures once thought to be extinct...
