Now celebrated as one of the great painters of the Renaissance, Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio fled Rome in 1606 to escape retribution for killing a man in a brawl. Three years later he was in Naples, where he painted The Seven Acts of Mercy. A year later he died at the age of thirty-eight under mysterious circumstances. Exploring Caravaggio's singular masterwork, in The Guardian of Shadows and Light Terence Ward offers an incredible narrative journey into the heart of his artistry and his metamorphosis from fugitive to visionary. Ward's guide in this journey is a contemporary artist whose own life was transformed by the painting, a simple man named Angelo who shows him where it still hangs in a small church in Naples and whose story helps him see its many layers. As Ward unfolds the structure of the painting, he explains each of the seven mercies and its influence on Caravaggio’s troubled existence. Caravaggio encountered the whole range of Naples’s vertical social layers, from the lowest ranks of poverty to lofty gilded aristocratic circles, and Ward reveals the old city behind today's metropolis. Fusing elements of history, biography, memoir, travelogue, and journalism, his narrative maps the movement from estrangement to grace, as we witness Caravaggio’s bruised life gradually redeemed by art.

Following the publication of his first book on Mercy in form of conversations with Vatican reporter Andrea Tornielli—in which he invites all humanity to the Gospel of Mercy, Pope Francis went further in series of General audiences during the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy to delved a little deeper into the great mystery of God’s mercy revealing why the need for forgiveness and for God’s mercy have been his dominant theological refrains, both before and after he became pope. These profound General Audience Talks on God’s Mercy elaborates how journey of mercy is a responsibility that challenges the conscience and actions of every Christian. Stressing the fact that it is not enough to experience God’s mercy in one’s life but also whoever receives it must also become a sign and instrument for others.

This volume celebrates the Wesleyan scholarship of Victor Shepherd, the first professor to occupy the Chair of Wesley Studies at Tyndale University College & Seminary in Toronto, Canada. The essays collected here explore not only the life and theology of John and Charles Wesley, but also many themes relating to the contemporary Wesleyan tradition, especially within the Canadian context Attention is given to the intellectual, social and religious context of John Wesley's theology, as well as to the ecumenical significance of a theologian who is seen to relate readily to many different families within the universal church. A pastor for four decades, Shepherd's thought always reflects Wesley's insistence on "practical divinity" or theology not oriented to speculation but rather to the concrete concerns of the people of God in their engagement with the treachery of their own hearts and the turbulence in the wider world. Victor A. Shepherd is Professor of Theology and Professor of Philosophy at Tyndale University College & Seminary, Toronto, and Professor "Ordinarius" for the Graduate Theological Foundation, University of Oxford. He is also an adjunct professor at the Toronto School of Theology, University of Toronto, where he supervises doctoral students in Reformation studies, Puritan thought, the theology of the eighteenth-century Awakening, and contemporary theology. He is currently a member of the Evangelical-Roman Catholic Dialogue (an undertaking of the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada and the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops). His other books include "Interpreting Martin Luther: An Introduction to His Life and Thought " (Regent College Publishing) and " The Nature and Function of Faith in the Theology of John Calvin " (Mercer University Press).
