  • Fostering Leadership Skills In Ministry (Revised)

    This updated edition of a Liguori bestseller is a survival manual for everyone in parish ministry and who volunteers in leadership positions. Although the Church is the body of Christ, we can never forget that it is made up of many members with different skills, resources, needs, and wants.

    Fostering Leadership Skills in Ministry provides help for dealing with some of the most challenging aspects of present-day church ministry. Reminding leaders of the importance of clearly defining their own mission, this handbook goes on to stress the importance of building community, planning together, and empowering small groups. Special consideration is given to the parish council as a leadership community, and a chapter on volunteers points to the ways church leaders can encourage others to respond to their baptismal calling.

    Included are tips for dealing with conflict and anger, running a meeting, managing staff, and building confidence. Sections on change and transition and ministerial development complete this comprehensive ministry-leadership manual.

    In a new chapter on adult faith formation, Hiesberger cites Church documents to support her practical suggestions for integrating Catholic-faith components into adult catechesis.

    Fostering Leadership Skills in Ministry will be a useful resource for pastors, administrators, lay ministers, parish council members, and all who play an active role in the life of a parish.

  • Talking Back : A Monastic Handbook For Combating Demons

    $24.95

    How did the monks of the Egyptian desert fight against the demons that attacked them with tempting thoughts? How could Christians resist the thoughts of gluttony, fornication, or pride that assailed them and obstructed their contemplation of God? According to Evagrius of Pontus (345-399), one of the greatest spiritual directors of ancient monasticism, the monk should “talk back” to demons with relevant passages from the Bible. His book Talking Back (Antirrhetikos) lists over 500 thoughts or circumstances in which the demon-fighting monk might find himself, along with the biblical passages with which the monk should respond. It became one of the most popular books among the ascetics of Late Antiquity and the Byzantine East, but until now the entire text had not been translated into English. From Talking Back we gain a better understanding of Evagrius’s eight primary demons: gluttony, fornication, love of money, sadness, anger, listlessness, vainglory, and pride. We can explore a central aspect of early monastic spirituality, and we get a glimpse of the temptations and anxieties that the first desert monks faced.
