NEW: Biography - Australian

THE LUCKY ONES

Award-winning journalist and former foreign correspondent Melinda Ham presents a moving and meticulously researched book of refugee stories spanning 70 years and tracking journeys from Iraq, Afghanistan, Poland, Tibet, Vietnam and Zaire and offers a window into the complex history of Australian refugee experiences in their own words.

MINE IS THE KINGDOM

Journalist David Hardaker had been investigating the Hillsong phenomenon for several years, gaining unparalleled access to former insiders, when he received a tip-off. Something big was going down.

In 2023, the curtain finally came down on Brian Houston. The rock star of Pentecostalism, former Global Senior Pastor of Hillsong Church, was acquitted of concealing his father's sexual abuse of a minor, but it was too late. His glittering megachurch had disowned him. How had it come to this? And how did Hillsong, the brightest star of international evangelical Christianity, fall to earth so spectacularly?

THE GIRL WHO TOUCHED THE STARS

Despite breaking her record, Bonnie Hancock says that wasn't the most important thing about her fastest ever circumnavigation of Australia in which she covered 12,700kms over 254 days. Instead she reflects on the lessons she learned along the way and the importance of teamwork.

A BRILLIANT LIFE

Rachelle Unreich's biography is an emotional story about her mother who survived the holocaust. In parts it is a difficult read, however it also has many inspiring and uplifting moments.

AN UNLIKELY PRISONER

Economics professor and eternal optimist Sean Turnell shares his experience of spending 650 days in Myanmar's notorious Insein Prison for 650 days on the charge of being a spy. He recalls how hope became his closest companion.
