  • 1 Minute Aquinas

    $19.95

    Pope St. Pius X said that “in just one year, a man can derive more profit from the works of St. Thomas Aquinas than from a lifetime studying the works of others.”

    If you don’t have a year to study the more than 3,000+ pages St. Thomas wrote, then turn to The One-Minute Aquinas, the fast-paced book that provides busy readers with simple, readable explanations of the truths that, for 750 years now, have caused the works of St. Thomas to be sought out by kings and popes, scholars and saints, as well as by ordinary souls like you hungry to know God and to love him more and more.

    In this book’s lucid pages, author Kevin Vost gives you mall, digestible portions of St. Thomas’s life-giving wisdom that you can enjoy one minute at a time. Tables and graphics will help you grasp and remember St. Thomas’s key ideas with a minimum of time and effort.

    Best of all, in The One-Minute Aquinas you’ll find quick, sure refutations of the countless relativistic, secular, and pseudoscientific ideas that are so influential in our culture today and so shallow, contradictory, and wrong!

    Pope John Paul II declared that “The Church has been justified in consistently proposing St. Thomas as a master of thought and a model of the right way to do theology.” Now The One-Minute Aquinas enables even those with limited time and only a modest education to benefit from the wisdom of this great saint.

    Here, with minimal effort and among scores of other things, you’ll finally come to know and understand: Why God permits evil, Why He created t he universe, His power and (yes!) its limits. Why Jesus let Himself be tempted. How you can grow quickly in virtue. The natural law and the Commandments. The causes of lust (and how to remedy it). Aquinas’s five simple proofs that God exists Grace: did you know there are six kinds?

    Temperance (and what it does not forbid) Fortitude, and the virtues that strengthen it Mary: can she really be the Mother of God? And more!

  • Anamnesis As Dangerous Memory

    $29.95

    What happens when the Christian community gathers in faithful response to Christ’s command at the Last Supper, “Do this in remembrance of me”? Study of the biblical and early Christian notion of remembrance, the Greek word anamnesis, shows that the Church’s ritual action of remembering our salvation in Christ not only inspires but demands action in the world. The problem remains, however, whether and how we are able to practice such remembering in our society today. This book explores the political theology of Johann Baptist Metz to discover injustice and the challenge and hope it poses to those who join in solidarity with the oppressed, and the work of liturgical theologian Alexander Schmemann, to elaborate on how, in its unique keeping of time, the liturgy reveals the kingdom of God and empowers believers thus to witness to it. The meeting of these two compelling theologies results in a rich eschatology: life shaped by the vision of a future that fulfills the promises of the past.
    Morrill also marshals the work of many scholars concerning the concept of anamnesis which has proven crucial to the progress of ecumenical dialogues on Church order and the Eucharist. The effort is to understand how the Church’s liturgical commemoration of God’s salvific deeds in history, especially in Jesus, allows for neither a timeless form of religious piety nor a ritualism detached from the commerce of life in the world. A concluding investigation of the relationship between anamnesis and eschatology leads to further considerations about the dialectical character of the praxis of faith. Anamnesis as Dangerous Memory, while written in the field of systematic theology, offers a fresh perspective and framing of the issues for readers of Christian ethics and moral theology.

  • Anthropology : Seeking Light And Beauty

    Drawing on the wisdom and teaching experience of highly respected theologians, the Engaging Theology series builds a firm foundation for graduate study and other ministry formation programs.

    What does it mean to be human in the twenty-first century? Susan Ross explores this question through the lens of human desires: for God, freedom, knowledge, love, and pleasure, but also for power, consumer goods, self-gratification, and money. Beginning with biblical narratives of human desires, she goes on to consider how ancient, medieval, and modern thinkers have wrestled with the various ways that human beings have sought fulfillment in the world and in God.

    The twenty-first century brings new questions and continuing challenges:

    In a world of increasing complexity and fragmentation, can we still talk about the “self”?
    How have feminism and new thinking about sexuality changed the ways we think about ourselves?
    How do we maintain our humanity in the face of monstrous human evil?
    What do the findings of science say about our uniqueness as human beings?
    Anthropology: Seeking Light and Beauty offers a path through the many conflicting views of humanity, suggesting a fuller way of living as we try to follow the example of Jesus.

  • Believing In Jesus (Revised)

    $21.99

    Leonard Foley wrote Believing in Jesus to help “born Catholics” come to a deeper understanding of the beliefs and practices they have held all their lives and to help those who approach the Catholic Church for the first time. He wrote, “I hope this book will help some scared and scarred people and challenge others.”

    Now in its sixth edition, the best-selling Believing in Jesus captures the Christian’s continuing journey of faith, ever new, ever alive-yet always founded on God’s steadfast love for us. In a lively style Foley covers the complete spectrum of the Catholic faith, leading the reader from early Old Testament times through a world starting over in Jesus, and looking ahead to the time when Jesus will come again and we will share fully in his life.

    This edition is updated to reflect the latest church documents and events and is cross-referenced to the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Discussion questions will help readers to delve more deeply into the mysteries of the faith, and the expanded resources section provides ample opportunities for further exploration. Believing in Jesus is an indispensable guide to the faith we cherish.
