MP by Sean Doherty

Book Description

Michael Peterson, or MP as he is commonly known, ruled the surfing scene throughout the early to mid-1970s. Despite Michael's brilliant success he was, unbeknownst to all, facing a tougher opponent than anything he would ever encounter in the surf. What many dismissed as introverted weirdness was, in fact, the early sign of paranoid schizophrenia, and Michael's battle with this disease would ultimately put an end to his flourishing career. As completely as he had dominated, MP disappeared from the surfing landscape. Now, after so many years of obscurity, he tells what is truly Australian surfing's great untold story. MP: The Life of Michael Peterson covers everything from Peterson's early life with an abusive stepfather, to his celebrated victories in numerous surfing competitions, to his descent into the drug scene, his imprisonment and subsequent institutionalisation.

Theology and Economics by Sean Doherty Theology and Economics, Hardback (September 2015)

This volume brings together a prominent group of Christian economists and theologians to provide an interdisciplinary look at how we might use the tools of economic and theological reasoning to cultivate more just and moral economies for the 21st century.

Theology and Economic Ethics by Sean Doherty Theology and Economic Ethics, Hardback (March 2014)

This book seeks to expand the self-critical resources of contemporary theological economic ethics by bringing the method of a pre-modern thinker, Martin Luther (1483-1546), into interaction with that of a modern contribution to social ethics, the Swiss theologian Arthur Rich (1910-92).
