  • Commentary On The Book Of Isaiah

    $32.95

    “Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ.” -Saint Jerome

    Understanding the book of Isaiah is fundamental to attaining a deeper knowledge of our Faith. In Father Mitch Pacwa’s new book, Commentary on the Book of Isaiah, the prolific scripture scholar unpacks the mysteries contained in this prophetic book to guide Catholics on the path of sanctity. Isaiah is undoubtedly the greatest prophet in the Old Testament. The name Isaiah means “God is Salvation,” which points to the main theme throughout the book. God has come to save His people, and this message is what makes Isaiah a necessary book for every Catholic to read, understand, and meditate upon. While reading the book of Isaiah is not always clear and straightforward, this commentary organizes the events and prophecies in chronological history to help the reader grasp all the grace and messages this beautiful book has to offer. This book can help us in our understanding of our faith as it traces the themes of the oneness of God, His perfections reflected in creation, God’s punishment, the remnant, and the sending of the Messiah. Commentary on the Book of Isaiah will be an invaluable aid to your spiritual life as you come to know God through scripture.

  • Courage And Conviction

    $19.89

    Today, many Christians, concerned and challenged by contemporary trends in society and religion, are bewildered and perhaps tempted to leave the Church and manage on their own.

    Courage and Conviction is addressed to thinking adult Christians who seek something between high theology and pious platitudes. Ranging from consideration of Christian identity, via the challenge of faith-filled living in a world of diversity, to suggestions for mature discipleship today, these reflections-building on Scripture studies, cultural anthropology, and life experience-are offered by way of support, encouragement, and perhaps further enlightenment.

  • Facilitating For Growth

  • Homilies On The First Epistle Of John

    $24.95

    Saint Augustine’s ten homilies on the First Letter of John are among his greatest and most influential works. John and Augustine both develop the same central theme – love –and in these homilies Augustine uses John’s epistle as a point of departure for exploring the meaning and implications of love with his customary profundity, passion and analytic rigor. As with John, a context of dissension and conflict within the Christian community (the Donatist breakaway from Catholic unity), gives his preaching a tone of urgency and poignancy. Anyone who reads these homilies, universally viewed as classics, cannot fail to be moved and challenged both intellectually and emotionally.

  • Hospitality Of God (Revised)

    $24.95

    Luke portrays the life and ministry of Jesus as a divine “visitation” to the world, seeking hospitality. The One who comes as visitor and guest becomes host and offers a hospitality in which the entire world can become truly human, be at home, and know salvation in the depths of their hearts. In this new edition of The Hospitality of God, Brendan Byrne, SJ, provides to-the-point commentary on those parts of Luke’s gospel that bring home to people a sense of the extravagance of God’s love for them.The Hospitality of God approaches Luke’s gospel through the interpretive key of “hospitality.” It looks at the gospel as a whole, yet lingers upon scenes where the theme of hospitality is particularly prominent, such as the infancy stories, Jesus at Nazareth, Jesus in the house of Simon, the Good Samaritan, Martha and Mary, the banquet in 14:1-35, the Prodigal Son, Jesus’ visit to the tax collector Zacchaeus, the institution of the Eucharist, and the Emmaus event. This revised edition includes a new introductory chapter titled “Features of Luke,” which includes distinctive themes and motifs of the gospel that invite all to join in the life-giving hospitality of God. This revised edition is an excellent resource for students, teachers, and pastors interested in Luke’s gospel or in search of a helpful perspective for pastoral and homiletic reflection and preparation.

  • Liberating Path Of The Hebrew Prophets

    $26.00

    “This book examines the liberation journey that is the heart of the Hebrew Scriptures. The work begins with a careful reading of narrative, prophetic and legal texts from the Hebrew Scriptures. All of these texts reveal exodus, the journey from constriction, as a fundamental biblical concern. After showing how the message of the Hebrew Prophets represents a consistent theme throughout Scripture, the author traces the further refinement of these liberation themes in contemporary writers and prophets such as Abraham Joshua Heschel, Martin Buber, Paulo Freire, Gustavo Guttiaerez, Erich Fromm, Martin Luther King, Beverly Harrison, Maya Angelou, Robin Wall Kimmerer and bell hooks. The book shows how the insights of these prophets, ancient and modern, offer guidance for confronting current challenges for readers of all faiths and backgrounds”–Provided by publisher.

  • Like A Hammer Shattering Rock

    $17.00

    Renowned Catholic author Megan McKenna celebrates her 50th book with a controversial interpretation of the Gospels of Mark, Matthew, Luke, and John and what they mean for the Church and society today.

    In many ways, modern audiences have become so familiar with the gospels that we’ve stopped listening and integreting their wisdom into our everyday lives. Acclaimed author Megan McKenna explores the messages of the four gospels in the context of daily life when they were originally written and interprets their meaning for our modern world. While some argue for the development of new gospels for the 21st century, McKenna argues that we haven’t paid due attention to the ones we already have; in many cases, we’ve ignored sections of these teachings entirely and twisted their meaning to suit our own agendas. McKenna breaks it down, gospel by gospel, and shows us how the lessons of Jesus’s apostles continue to resonate.

  • Man Who Left His Mark

    $15.95

    In this unusual book on the Gospel of Mark, the brilliant and prolific Peter Kreeft presents 252 contemporary questions that modern man asks about every aspect of the meaning of life, faith, love, suffering, friendship, death, eternity, God, Jesus and more.

    He then gives an answer to each question taken directly from Mark’s Gospel, which are always pointed and often suprising, and makes us ponder more deeply about the meaning of the Scripture passage in relation to our own lives. Kreeft says that Mark’s Gospel is “the quickest and ‘busiest’ of the four – the Gospel for Americans.” He describes the book as “a series of sudden shocks and surprises because that is how Jesus appeared to Mark and others who followed him – full of shocks and surprises.”

    Kreeft’s goal of this book is for us to allow Jesus to speak more directly to us, to answer our questions in a personal and profound way, so that we will learn more about ourselves, and about Him. And thus how to know, love and follow Him more closely in our lives.

The newcomer to scripture will find an easily accessible group of stories about people who look and act just like the characters we know today and whose encounters with God leave us wondering what God has in store for us.

    Individuals and groups will find this book helpful in bible studies, small church groups, and as a way of sparking conversation about our images of God and what our relationship with God looks like. Readers will be able to place themselves in these stories and discover what God has to say to them.
