  • Whats Church All About

    $18.95

    This book explores the real questions that young people ask, including their negative and sometimes irreverent questions. It then provides four supplementary chapters based on advanced questions for adults and a vision for the Church of the future. It uses real stories to flesh out the intentions of Scripture and Church teaching, drawing also on contemporary culture and learning. It avoids Church-talk that means nothing to young people, but also unwraps the Church’s hidden treasures in an accessible way. The book has been influenced by both the recent synod on youth and the current discussions in the Plenary Council of the Church in Australia.

  • Vatican Code : American Diplomacy In The Time Of Francis

    $29.95

    There are many who are intrigued by the institution of the Holy See under the pontificate of Pope Francis. The Vatican Code opens a curtain to the Holy See from a unique angle. It browses some of the highlights of the papacy from 2013 to 2017 as well as some of its murkier elements. It profiles some of the personalities and the daily and long-term innerworkings of the United States Embassy with the Vatican. The Vatican Code provides key insights into the sensitive negotiations of an American ambassador to the Holy See and will help readers understand the intricacies of this unique role.

    Ambassador Kenneth Hackett was born and raised in Boston, educated by the Jesuits at Boston College High School and Boston College. He did graduate study at New York University and took a sabbatical at the University of South Carolina. Following three and a half years with the Peace Corps in Ghana, he spent forty years with Catholic Relief Services (CRS), nineteen of which he was the chief executive officer and president. He was appointed as United States ambassador to the Holy See in August 2013.

  • Amidst Us Our Bleoved Stands

    $24.99

    When it comes to baptism and the Lord’s Supper, many Baptists reject the language of sacrament. As a people of the book, the logic goes, Baptists must not let tradition supersede the Bible. So Baptists tend to view baptism and Communion as ordinances and symbols, not sacraments.

    But the history of Baptists and the sacraments is complicated. In Amidst Us Our Beloved Stands, Michael A. G. Haykin argues that earlier Baptists, such as Charles Spurgeon, stood closer to Reformed sacramental thought than most Baptists today do. More than mere memorials, baptism and Communion have spiritual implications that were celebrated by Baptists of the past. Haykin calls for a renewal of sacramental life in churches today-Baptists can and should be sacramental.

  • Liminal Papacy Of Pope Francis

    $27.00

    An expert on the papacy and Vatican II, Massimo Faggioli draws from world history, politics, papal biographies, and the documents of Vatican II for this incisive analysis of Francis’s developing pontificate. He notes that Francis’s is a liminal papacy, one that gives attention to the poor, to the peripheries, and to relations between the Vatican and other religions, with an emphasis on synodality and on the Church as the people of God. He also contrasts Francis with his immediate predecessor Benedict XVI and John Paul II, and shows his similarities with the spirit of John XXIII, the architect of Vatican II.

  • Eating Together Becoming One

    $29.95

    In November 2015, Pope Francis called on theologians to explore whether normal Catholic practice should be changed to allow Christians, belonging to other churches, to share fully at the table when they take part in a Eucharist celebrated by Catholics. Thomas O’Loughlin provides his contribution to that challenge in this volume. He argues that the various ways of thinking about what we are doing in the liturgy should lead us to see intercommunion as enhancing our participation in the mystery of the Church and the mystery we celebrate.

  • Infiltration : The Plot To Destroy The Church From Within

    $24.95

    It took nearly two millennia for the enemies of the Catholic Church to realize they could not successfully attack the Church from the outside. Indeed, countless nemeses from Nero to Napoleon succeeded only in creating sympathy and martyrs for our Catholic Faith.

    That all changed in the mid-19th century, when clandestine societies populated by Modernists and Marxists hatched a plan to subvert the Catholic Church from within. Their goal: to change Her doctrine, Her liturgy, and Her mission.

    In this captivating and carefully documented book, Dr. Taylor Marshall pulls back the curtain on their nefarious plan, showing how these enemies of Christ strategically infiltrated the seminaries, then the priesthood, then the episcopacy, and eventually the cardinal-electors all with the eventual goal of electing one of their own as pope.

    You’ll come to see that the seemingly endless scandals plaguing the Church are not the result, as so many think, of cultural changes, or of Vatican II, but rather the natural consequences of an orchestrated demonic plot to destroy the Church.

    In these gripping pages, you’ll discover:

    *How popes of the 1800s discovered a plot to infiltrate the Church
    *How theologians suspected of being Modernists became Vatican powerbrokers.
    *How modifications in Catholic canon law enabled predator priests like Theodore McCarrick to stay in positions of power.
    *How Our Lady of La Salette gave a prophetic warning of the plot to infiltrate the Church.
    *How the chief architect of liturgical reforms was discovered to be a Freemason.
    *Archbishop Fulton Sheen’s role in exposing the Communist infiltration of the priesthood.
    *How the confusing history of the Third Secret of Fatima relates to the infiltration of the Catholic Church.
    *That Pope Paul VI explained that Vatican II was not infallible.
    *How Pope Paul VI revoked the voting rights of cardinals over 80, thus guaranteeing that all voting cardinals were appointed by him.
    *How the criteria for sainthood shifted from a person’s historical acts to his personal beliefs.
    *The complex roots of the St. Gallen Mafia and how they plotted to modify Catholic doctrine and elect Pope Fran

  • Rise And Fall Of The Incomparable Liturgy

    $32.99

    Most histories of Church of England liturgy, for good reason, begin in the 1530s, and centre on the 1549 and 1552 Books of Common Prayer. That is important for initial doctrinal changes, and the establishment of the liturgical text, However, both liturgies were extremely short-lived, and the real history of the Book of Common Prayer as the Liturgy of the Church of England begins with the Elizabethan Settlement, 1559, and a long tenure of the enacted Elizabethan liturgy. The only revision of any note was that of 1662, and this revision lasted without serious challenge until the 19th century, and without legal alternative until the twentieth century. This study therefore concentrates on 1559 until the Report of the Royal Commission in 1906 which paved the way for liturgical revision.

  • Will Pope Francis Pull It Off

    $14.95

    Pope Francis has made no secret of the fact that he seeks to reform the Catholic Church, especially the institutional components by which it is guided and governed. Standing in his way are institutional inertia, simplistic ideologies, scandals, and the resistance of some who will not readily relinquish power. Can he pull it off?

    In this smart and thoughtful book, priest-sociologist Rocco D’Ambrosio carefully considers the personality, convictions, and gifts the pope brings to the task. He explores the hurdles Francis faces, the tools at his disposal, and his prospects for success. The result is an institutional analysis of the Catholic Church in the Bergoglio era that promises rich, new insights and plenty of food for thought to every reader

  • Polarization In The US Catholic Church

    $19.95

    It is no secret: the body of Christ in the United States is broken. While universality-and unity amid diversity-is a fundamental characteristic of Roman Catholicism, all-too-familiar issues related to gender, sexuality, race, and authority have rent the church. Healthy debates, characteristic of a living tradition, suffer instead from an absence of genuine engagement and dialogue. But there is still much that binds American Catholics. In naming the wounds and exploring their social and religious underpinnings, Polarization in the US Catholic Church underscores how shared beliefs and aspirations can heal deep fissures and the hurts they have caused. Cutting across disciplinary and political lines, this volume brings essential commentary in the direction of reclaimed universality among American Catholics.

  • Whose Mass Is It

    $14.95

    When changes happen to the Catholic Mass, opinions are strong and diverse. Everyone feels in some way that the Mass is theirs. It is. Or is it? Whose Mass is it? And what should people do to claim it? Whether or not adult Catholics attend Mass regularly, they strongly bond with it. Within a single generation, English-speaking Catholics experienced the Second Vatican Council’s authorization for the first overhaul of the liturgy in four hundred years, and then, in 2011, they prepared for and implemented a revised vernacular translation. Each of these two events awakened strong feelings as people gradually became aware that someone else’s decision was going to affect the cornerstone of their spiritual life. In Whose Mass Is It? Paul Turner examines the impact of the Mass, the connections it makes, and its purpose in the lives of believers.

  • Unfinished Council : Vatican 2 Pope Francis And The Renewal Of Catholicism

    $19.95

    The Second Vatican Council has become an indispensable reference point for understanding Roman Catholicism today. Yet in spite of its impact, Vatican II was in many ways an unfinished council. The council bishops were able to establish key pillars in the construction of a new vision for the church of our time, but, for various reasons, they were not able to draw those pillars together into a coherent unified structure. This volume describes both the council’s building project itself and the challenges facing the church today if we are to complete the project begun fifty years ago.

  • Liturgical Sense : The Logic Of Rite

    $21.95

    * A premier Anglican liturgical theologian reviews the history of the liturgical movement
    in North America and anticipates next steps in liturgical “sensibility”

    Louis Weil looks back on his work shaping the liturgical life of the Episcopal Church
    through his involvement with the development of The 1979 Book of Common Prayer-
    and looks forward to the future of the church and its liturgical life. Through stories and
    first-person anecdotes, Weil does “narrative theology” as only he can.

    Although most points of reference are to the 1979 BCP, the book is aiming at a more
    fundamental level-not just Episcopal or even Anglican liturgy, but liturgical rites as
    such: how do they “do what they do”?-or NOT do when they are done badly! “Liturgical
    Sense” is two dimensional: both the “common sense” of liturgical rites and also their
    “aesthetic sense.”

    It is Dr. Weil’s contention that in American culture we have an inherent inability to “think
    symbolically.” Dr. Weil seeks to encourage a return to “liturgical sense” across the church.

  • Spiritual Masters For All Seasons

    $18.00

    Every age needs figures of spiritual inspiration but, in times of recession and uncertainty, they are essential in helping us to rise above despair and to search for God deep within ourselves. In this new book, Michael Ford invites four spiritual masters onto the same stage for the first time and shows how they speak, not only to our own times, but for all seasons. Thomas Merton, Henri Nouwen, Anthony de Mello and John O’Donohue all died suddenly at the height of their fame as spiritual masters but they continue to have immense followings. What was their secret and why do their legacies endure? Through unpublished interviews with some of the authors themselves, encounters with their friends and reflections from readers who have been inspired by their writings, Michael Ford journeys across the United States and Europe to assess their place in the world of contemporary spirituality. He goes behind the scenes of the Abbey of Gethsemani in Kentucky to hear at first hand from monks who were novices under Merton; visits Lambeth Palace in London to discover Merton’s influence on the Archbishop of Canterbury; talks to people about how Nouwen, the proverbial wounded healer, helped them through depression because he had suffered himself; speaks to Jesuits who worked with de Mello in India and tries to find out how close the international storyteller came to Buddhism; and takes a walk with O’Donohue through landscapes in rural Ireland which feature in such books as Anam Cara and discusses the appeal of Celtic spirituality. Blending the spiritual with the journalistic, Michael Ford presents four unique writers as “Spiritual Masters for All Seasons.”

    $15.99

    In 2006, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger was elected Bishop of Rome and took the name Benedict XVI. At age 78 he was personally surprised by his election, which delighted conservatives as a sign of continuity in the Church, and dismayed liberals, who had hoped for many changes upon the passing of John Paul II. This one-volume compendium, culled from Ratzinger’s writings and speeches, is the best source for understanding the concerns that will animate the agenda of this controversial pontiff.

  • Interrupting White Privilege

    $28.00

    White Catholic theologians have remained relatively silent on the topic of racism since publication in 1979 of the U.S. bishops’ statement against racism, Brothers and Sisters to Us. In this hard-hitting study, prominent Roman Catholic theologians address the issue of white privilege. They maintain that systems of white privilege are a significant factor in shaping the evil of racism in our country and that most white theologians and ethicists remain ignorant of the part they play in maintaining racism.

    Contributors include Jon Nilson (Loyola Chicago), Mary Elizabeth Hobgood (Holy Cross), Barbara Hilkert Andolsen (Monmouth University), Charles Curran (Southern Methodist University), Roger Haight (Union Theological Seminary), Margaret Guider (Weston School of Theology), Margaret Pfeil (Notre Dame), and editors Laurie Cassidy and Alex Mikulich.

  • Man And Woman He Created Them

    $39.95

    In this new critical translation of Pope John Paul II’s magnum opus, internationally renowned biblical scholar Michael Waldstein presents John Paul II’s magnificent vision of the human person with meticulous scholarship and profound insight.

    In this vision, John Paul II presents a catechesis centered on the human person, understood within the mystery of Christ. Going back to the biblical “beginning” as recorded in Genesis, the pope discusses the bodily dimension of human personhood, sexuality, and marriage and celibacy in the light of biblical revelation.

    Complete with a new introduction and new footnotes, this edition has been crafted with a penetrating eye to the past twenty years of study since John Paul II gave his Theology of the Body talks.

    * A foreword by Cardinal Schoenborn, Archbishop of Vienna.
    * A preface by Christopher West.
    * The catecheses of Song of Songs and Tobit: a comparison between the delivered text and the longer original pre-Papal text.
    * A comprehensive index of words and phrases.
    * A scriptural index.
    * A reference table for other versions of the papal texts.

  • Saint Teresa Of Avila

    $30.00

    All through her life Marcelle Auclair assiduously studied the writings of Teresa of Avila. She admired in her an essentially “modern” woman: inventive, practical, gallant and intrepid, with tremendous organizational capacities, whose genius permitted her to break through the restrictions of her time. Madame Auclair decided to retranslate the saint’s writings and to write her life. With characteristic determination, she attempted to obtain the seemingly impossible (it had never been done before) – an authorization from the Holy See to enter the Carmelite cloisters in Spain and to gather authentic background material for her projected work. The permission was granted. On her return to Paris she gave up all her professional obligations and for two years virtually went into retreat, devoting her entire time to the accomplishment of what is no doubt the most vivid existing biography of this great saint.

  • Aquinas Catechism : A Simple Explanation Of The Catholic Faith

    $19.95

    The essentials of the Catholic Faith clearly, comprehensively, and beautifully explained by one of the Church’s greatest thinkers! Although St. Thomas Aquinas was one of the Church’s most intellectually powerful theologians, few know that he also wrote a great deal that’s well within the reach of ordinary believers. In fact, as you’ll find in these pages, St. Thomas had a remarkable ability to communicate the Faith including both its most complex and its simplest elements in plain language. Here you’ll find his deeply insightful, straightforward, and clear explanations of the Apostles’ Creed, the Commandments, and the Sacraments as well as of the Lord’s Prayer and the Hail Mary. In other words, this book will give you a basic course in the Catholic Faith, taught by the Church’s greatest theologian. Let him help you gain a better grasp of Church doctrine, pray with greater fervor and understanding, receive the Sacraments more worthily, learn what God requires of you and why, explain Church teachings to non-Catholic friends, discover the scriptural sources of our Catholic Faith, find remedies for moral weaknesses that still afflict you, glimpse the greatness of the Church’s supernatural mission, and much more! Above all, let St. Thomas teach you how to explain, defend, and live your Faith . . . with the clear-sighted wisdom of a saint!
