  • Confessions : A Translation For The 21st Century

    $34.95

    The Confessions of Saint Augustine is considered the all time number one Christian classic. Augustine undertook his greatest piece of writing with the conviction that God wanted him to make this confession. The Confessions are, in fact, an extended poetic, passionate, intimate prayer. Augustine was probably forty-three when he began this endeavor. He had been a baptized Catholic for ten years, a priest for six, and a bishop for only two. His pre-baptismal life raised questions in the community. Was his conversion genuine? The first hearers were captivated, as many millions have been over the following sixteen centuries. His experience of God speaks to us across time with little need of transpositions. This new translation masterfully captures his experience.

  • Rule Of Saint Benedict For Everyone

    $8.95

    Drawing on the Dialogues of St. Gregory and St. Benedicts Rule for Monks, Goberna uses the life and writings of Saint Benedict to address in a modern and simple way the longings for sincerity, simplicity, and value that were as heartfelt in his lifetime as they are today. His message remains as valid as ever, especially because he invites readers to experience the abiding happiness that is a fruit of the Spirit.

    Benedict would surely recognize himself in this fresh portrait, through which he still offers a seam of gold to all who long for sure guidance in the ways of prayer and in relationships among family and community.

  • Practice Of The Presence Of God

    $14.99

    The original guide to “practicing the presence of God”

    “We must not grow weary of doing little things for the love of God, who looks not on the great size of the work, but on the love of it.”

    In this classic work, which has instructed and inspired millions, a humble 17th-century monk reveals the secrets of daily, moment-by-moment fellowship with God.

    “In the way of God, thoughts count very little,” writes Brother Lawrence, who spent much of his monastic life in the kitchen. “Love does it all.” Full of realistic honesty, friendliness, and simplicity, Brother Lawrence shows that it is possible to meet God amongst the pots and pans-in the ordinary, daily events of life. This edition, rendered from the original French into graceful, contemporary English, will nourish and delight all those who seek to practice the presence of God.

  • On Christian Belief

    $42.95

    The seven works of Saint Augustine that are contained in this volume all deal with the problem of faith in God. They were written over the course of three decades, beginning with True Religion (390) and extending to the Enchiridion of Faith, Hope and Charity (c.421). Hence this selection of writings provides an impressive insight into the intellectual and spiritual development of one of the greatest of all Western minds, as it grappled with a question that has never ceased to preoccupy and stimulate Western thought: Is it reasonable to believe in God, and what form might such belief take?

  • Expositions Of The Psalms 121-150

    $44.95

    Final volume of the long-awaited translation of one of Augustine’s classics and a great work in Christian literature. Newly translated by Maria Boulding, O.S.B., whose masterful translation of Augustine’s Confessions in the same series has been praised as being “of a different level of excellence from practically anything else in the market.” (Bishop Rowan Williams, Monmouth, England)

  • Spiritual Exercises Of Saint Ignatius Of Loyola

    $13.95

    St. Ignatius of Loyola wrote the Spiritual Exercises between 1522 and 1524, and today, nearly five centuries later, Jesuits in training are still required to study it and follow its precepts during their first
    year in the novitiate.

    Not designed to be read cover to cover in one sitting, this book is made up of daily meditations meant to be closely examined in isolation over a period of about four weeks, under the guidance of a spiritual director. Though The Spiritual Exercises have traditionally been read primarily by those training for the priesthood, in recent years increasing numbers of lay people and non-Catholics are discovering its joys and insights.

    This method – edited by Father Elder Mullan (1865-1925) and published in 1914-is essential for anyone interested in strengthening his or her
    faith and relationship with God. Spanish priest and spiritual philosopher SAINT IGNATIUS OF LOYOLA (1491-1556) has been described by Pope Benedict XVI as “a man of God,” “a man of
    profound prayer,” and “a faithful servant of the Church.” The principal founder of the Society of Jesus, Ignatius was canonized in 1622.

    Already a classic for those using or studying the Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius of Loyola, this new revised and corrected edition of Fr Michael Ivens’s masterwork will be warmly welcomed.

    Selected from sermons delivered by C. S. Lewis during World War II, these nine addresses show the beloved author and theologian bringing hope and courage in a time of great doubt. “The Weight of Glory,” considered by many to be Lewis’s finest sermon of all, is an incomparable explication of virtue, goodness, desire, and glory.

  • Problem Of Pain

    $16.99

    For centuries Christians have been tormented by one question above all — If God is good and all-powerful, why does he allow his creatures to suffer pain? C. S. Lewis sets out to disentangle this knotty issue but wisely adds that in the end no intellectual solution can dispense with the necessity for patience and courage.

  • Great Divorce

    $17.99

    C.S. Lewis takes us on a profound journey through both heaven and hell in this engaging allegorical tale. Using his extraordinary descriptive powers, Lewis introduces us to supernatural beings who will change the way we think about good and evil. In The Great Divorce C.S. Lewis again employs his formidable talent for fable and allegory. The writer, in a dream, finds himself in a bus which travels between Hell and Heaven. This is the starting point for an extraordinary meditation upon good and evil which takes issue with William Blake’s The Marriage of Heaven and Hell.
