African American Heritage Hymnal


575 Hymns, Spirituals, and Gospel Songs
Rev. Dr. Delores Carpenter, Rev. Nolan E. Williams...

Summary
Eight years of inspired work by a committee of more than 30 musicians and pastors, all leaders in African
American worship and gospel music, have resulted in this compendium representing the common repertoire of
African American churches across the United States. For the first time in an African American hymnal, traditional
hymns and songs are notated to reflect performance practices found in the oral tradition of the black church in
America. At a time when such traditions are falling victim to modern technology, this book strives to preserve
this rich heritage for future generations. Presented are litanies for "Fifty-Two Sundays of Worshipful Celebration"
outlining an African American church year, including such special days as Martin Luther King Sunday, Elders' Day,
Mother's Day, and Men's Day. Also included are 52 responsive scripture readings from the Old and New
Testaments and an extensive index that includes scriptural and thematic cross-references.

Against the Grain


Christianity and Democracy, War and Peace
George Weigel

Summary
Cutting against the grain of conventional wisdom, New York Times bestseller, George Weigel, offers a compelling
look at the ways in which Catholic social teaching sheds light on the challenges of peace, the problem of
pluralism, the quest for human rights, and the defense of liberty. In this major contribution one of America's most
prominent intellectuals offers a meticulous analysis of the foundations of the free society as he makes a powerful
case for the role of moral reasoning in meeting the threats to human dignity posed by debonair nihilism, jihadist
violence, and the brave new world of manufactured men and women.

And Now I See . . .


A Theology of Transformation
Robert Barron

Summary
"Christianity is, above all, a way of seeing. What unites figures as diverse as James Joyce, Caravaggio, John
Milton, the architect of Chartres, Dorothy Day, Dietrich Bonhoeffer and the later Bob Dylan is a peculiar and
distinctive take on things, a style, a way, which flows finally from Jesus of Nazareth. Origen remarked that
holiness is seeing with the eyes of Christ. Teilhard de Chardin said, with great passion, that his mission as a
Christian thinker was to help people see. And Thomas Aquinas said that the ultimate goal of the Christian life is a
'beatific vision,' an act of seeing. This book is about coming to vision through Christ." - Robert Barron, from the
Prelude

The Arena (2nd Edition)


Guidelines for Spiritual and Monastic Life
Ignatius Brianchaninov, Kallistos Timothy Ware

Summary
One of the most important and accessible texts of Eastern Orthodox Christian teaching on the spiritual life, this
book draws upon the ascetic and mystical doctrine of the Greek Fathers and greats of the Orthodox Christian
church. In an age alienated from spiritual culture and rooted in materialism, these teachings pose both a
challenge and an invitation to those seeking heightened spirituality. This book is essential reading for anyone
who desires a profound spiritual journey based upon an encounter with Christ as God.

Petersburg, Russia. He is the author of On the Prayer of Jesus. Kallistos Timothy Ware is an Orthodox Bishop

The Bad Catholic's Guide to the Catechism


A Faithful, Fun-Loving Look at Catholic Dogmas, Doctrines, and Schmoctrines
John Zmirak

Summary
Masquerading behind the guise of the old-fashioned Catechism that generations of Catholic school kids in plaid
skirts or clip-on ties had to memorize, this candid handbook provides a witty take on the teachings of the
Catholic faith. Objections from relativist, New Atheist, dissenting Catholic, and other points of view are featured,
with intellectually sound questions and bracingly funny answers. Penned by a Yale-educated author who worked
both in the mainstream, secular media as well as for Catholic outlets, the study reveals the whole range of
contemporary criticisms aimed at the Church-and how to answer them in kind. Using both a rapier wit and the
strong left hook of a blue-collar kid from Queens, this guide defends its faith with good humor and sincere
respect at every turn while illustrating the difficulties modern believers face.

The Bad Catholic's Guide to the Seven Deadly Sins


A Vital Look at Virtue and Vice, With Quizzes and Activities for Saintly Self-Improvement
John Zmirak

Summary
The latest installment of the Bad Catholic's Guides examines the greatest threats to the virtuous life-the seven
deadly sins. Theological and historical insights, tongue-in-cheek vignettes of history's greatest saints and
sinners, and cringe-inducing quizzes entice readers to tally their scores on the virtue and vice index and
calibrate to what degree they have imperiled their immortal souls. Andy Warhol, Ayn Rand, and Mother Angelica
are invoked as exemplars of the best and worst of human behavior, while a heady blend of serious theology and
pointed satire-punctuated by trivia, charts, and vignettes-brings theology into sharp, hilarious relief, and
demonstrates that religious education need not be boring.

Begin Again
The Life and Spiritual Legacy of Bruno Lanteri
Timothy M., OMV Gallagher

Summary
Bestselling author Timothy M. Gallagher, OMV, assembles a remarkable biography of Father Bruno Lanteri, who
while living within a context of exciting historical significance-with the French Revolution, the rise and fall of
Napoleon, and the Bourbon Restoration reshaping France all around him-overcame great odds to become the
foremost spiritual leader of the age, ultimately founding the Oblates of the Virgin Mary. Drawn from Lanteri's own
journals, letters, and correspondence, Gallagher offers a detailed spiritual portrait of a man once limited by his
own impatience and lack of charity, who evolved into a man of fierce spiritual courage, religious reformer,
defender of the Pope against Napoleon's command, and a symbol of perseverance who coined the term "begin
again"-the official motto of the Oblates. Complemented by a timeline of historical events, photographs, and
maps, Gallagher's richly researched volume brings to light the ministry and legacy of a remarkable leader as never

Billy Graham
A Life in Pictures
Ken Garfield

Summary
Celebrating the life and legacy of one of America's best-known religious figures in words and photographs, this
book traces the amazing journey of the lanky farm boy from Charlotte, North Carolina, who grew up to preach to
more than 200 million people in stadiums and arenas around the world. Written by a journalist who covered
Graham and his ministry for more than a decade, Billy Graham: A Life in Pictures chronicles the preacher's rise,
his friendship with U.S. presidents, his spectacular crusades, and his work in building a religious organization that
continues with his son Franklin as its leader. It also offers a glimpse into Graham's rich family life and how he
managed to maintain his integrity while other religious personalities, despite-or perhaps because of-their large
Triumph Books followings, were losing theirs. The book provides a fitting tribute to one of the most important religious leaders of

The Busy Family's Guide to Spirituality


Practical Lessons for Modern Living From the Monastic Tradition
David Robinson

Summary
Drawing on timeless principles of monastic communal living, this spiritual guide for families offers effective tools
to meet many challenges and counteract the divisive forces that can splinter a healthy home. Cultivating a
sense of togetherness and nurturing the spiritual development of both the family and its individual members is a
challenge that many find difficult to meet. Though hectic schedules and competing interests chip away at the
sense of community and the support systems that family members need to thrive, each chapter of this book
includes a practical lesson from the rule of St. Benedict and the Benedictine traditions which have been
cornerstones of Western Christian monastic life for millennia. Spiritual practice, making time, discipline, sharing,
hospitality, and changing family dynamics are some of the topics addressed in this wise and wide-ranging
The Crossroad Publishing handbook, while exercises, checklists, and ideas for family activities are included at the end of every chapter.

A Comprehensive World History
Robert Royal

Summary
From the Catholic martyrs at Auschwitz to Oscar Romero; from Ita Ford and her companions to the recent

presents a wide-ranging history of these martyrs. The book traces the specific situation of each incident and
studies the political system and the reason for confrontation. Regions and topics include the Calvary of Romania,
the death of Edith Stein, Miguel Pro and the Mexican tragedy, Soviet Russia, and China.

Catholicism, Protestantism, and Capitalism


Amintore Fanfani, Professor Giorgio Campanini, Uni...

Summary
This classic work is an exhaustive philosophical, historical, and religious look at the relationship between Catholic
and Protestant religious doctrine and both the historical and ideological growth of capitalism. Starting with a
definition of capitalism, Fanfani examines how that definition squares with Catholic and Protestant teaching. He
then looks at the historical development of the capitalistic mindset or mentality, and examines the growth of the
mindset historically in light of both the Protestant and Catholic doctrine on economic life. This text will be of
interest to all students of economic thought, philosophy, and Catholic or Christian studies.

Catholics and American Culture


Fulton Sheen, Dorothy Day, and the Notre Dame Football Team
Mark S. Massa

Summary
While in the early years of the century Catholics in America were for the most part distrusted outsiders with
respect to the dominant culture, by the 1960s the mainstream of American Catholicism was in many ways "the
culture's loudest and most uncritical cheerleader." Mark Massa explores the rich irony in this postwar transition,
by examining key figures in American culture in the last century.

Christianity's Dangerous Memory


A Rediscovery of the Revolutionary Jesus
Diarmuid O'Murchu

Rethinking Jesus as an activist, rebel, leader, and first cultural contrarian

Summary
Drawing from the best contemporary scholarship, bestselling author Diarmuid O'Murchu deconstructs the history
of Christianity, and specifically the life of Jesus Christ, as it has evolved over the past two thousand years. With
rich language and clear metaphors, O'Murchu speaks to every Christian who is fed up with a revisionist Christian
doctrine based on banal ideas and who desperately seeks affirmation that the Christian faith is a much bigger,
deeper, and more challenging institution than churches have ever acknowledged or proclaimed. According to
O'Murchu, Jesus was never an earthly prince, but rather the first rebel, a countercultural outsider who sought to

The Spiritual Odyssey of a Man of Science
Mani Bhaumik

Summary
In this autobiographical meditation a world-renowned physicist examines the hidden links between science and
spirituality revealed by recent breakthroughs in quantum physics and cosmology. Reflecting on his own quest to
find greater meaning in life by synthesizing his scientific training and his developing faith, he offers a blueprint for
anyone seeking to reconcile science and religion in their own life. A technological discovery that led to LASIK
surgery brought him great fame, fortune, and an extravagant lifestyle, but he yearned for spiritual fulfillment.
Combining a detailed account of one man's journey from a lower caste home in India to an opulent Bel-Air
mansion with a fascinating blend of cutting edge physics and eastern philosophy, this memoir weaves science
and spirituality together to illuminate their common thread-a unified field of consciousness that underlies all of
creation.

as a precursor to taking good care of others. Bereavement care is draining work, and remaining empathetic to
the painful struggles of mourners, death, and dying, day in and day out, makes caregivers highly susceptible to
burnout. This book demonstrates how caring for oneself first allows one to be a more effective caregiver to
others. Through the advice, suggestions, and practices directed specifically to caregiving situations and needs,
caregivers will learn not to lose sight of caring for themselves as they care for others.

The Craft of Theology


From Symbol to System
Avery Dulles

Summary
Avery Dulles's theological career has spanned one of the most creative and confusing periods in the history of
the church. With the goal of integrating new information from philosophy and the sciences into a deeper
understanding of the world and society, the many theological schools pursued independent agendas, with the
net effect of a loss of coherence. It is Fr. Dulles's contention that theological schools have drifted so far apart
that what seems false and dangerous to one school seems almost self-evident to another. Theologians lack a
common language, common goals, and common norms.
Exploring the possibilities for greater consensus, The Craft of Theology illustrates how a "post-critical" theology
can draw on the riches of Scripture and tradition as it reflects on the faith of the church in new contexts. Fr.
Dulles discusses the freedom of theology within the university and sets forth principles for a fresh dialogue with
The Crossroad Publishing philosophy, the sciences, and other Christian churches.

Created for Joy


A Christian View of Suffering
Sidney Callahan

Summary
In the face of suffering, is it possible to believe in God? In this heartfelt and thoughtful new book, revered
Catholic columnist Sidney Callahan answers yes, offering a reflection on suffering from a Christian perspective.
Taking on C.S. Lewis and other traditional writers, she introduces the reader to new insights from fields such as
the psychology of human emotion and evolutionary biology. Drawing from her own harrowing experience of a
mother's loss, she shows that Christians view suffering in a different way, with the expectation-in the face of all
evidence to the contrary-that we are created to experience joy. Topics include Sept. 11, traditional
justifications, a new story of God and creation, Jesus-man of sorrows, suffering and joy in Christian practice, the
emotions, prayer, and transformation.

A Crisis of Saints (2nd Edition)


The Call to Heroic Faith in an Unheroic World
George W. Rutler, George Weigel

Summary
The essays that comprise this collection offer a penetrating examination of the spiritual condition of 21st-
century society and the modern Catholic Church. In a witty but soundly reasoned manner, the moral weakness
that epitomizes the contemporary era is berated. Examples from the lives of figures from early and recent church
history serve as parables for current cultural crises, and the voices of frustrated parishioners around the world
give these situations immediacy. Each chapter vividly demonstrates that the moral dangers of post-Vatican II life
are often disguised as mere alternatives rather than threats to the soul. This proposal offers an authentically
Catholic way of responding to these ethical challenges and exhorts the faithful to move beyond romanticism
about Vatican II and strive for lives of virtue that respond to the Church's call for effective evangelization.

Dear Heart, Come Home


The Path of Midlife Spirituality
Joyce Rupp

Summary
Joyce Rupp shares her own midlife journey-its ups and downs-with such honesty and insight that you will surely
identify with and benefit from the discoveries she has made along the way. Among them we can find wisdom in
the wounds we've carried from birth onward, and these wounds can heal; past regrets must be let go lest they
cling to us and drain our energy for life; the loving part of us can always out-wrestle the hating part; surprises
of beauty and talent in us wait to be discovered and shared; some of what we thought to be unbreakable truth
is now shattered pottery and unmendable; and our struggle to name God and to find a spirituality that enlivens
and enriches our existence is less complex than we first thought.

The Death of Christian Culture


John Senior, Andrew Senior, Dr. David Allen White

Summary
First published in 1978, this hard-hitting exposition discusses the root causes of how and why Christian culture is
dying. It investigates literature, culture, history, and religion in an attempt to show that education is increasingly
about bureaucratic training and less about scholarly truth. A warning that cultural and artistic treasures of
classical and Christian civilizations must be preserved, this provocative analysis diagnoses a cultural and societal
malaise facing modern Western societies.

Everybody Has an Angel


Anselm Gruen

Summary
In this follow-up to Angels of Grace, Anselm Gruen shows how the gentleness and compassion of God is
embodied in tthe kindness of angels throughout the Bible. Everybody Has an Angel presents the angels of the
Bible as spiritual helpers, accessible to believers today. There is the Angel who Accompanies, the Angel Who
Heals, the Angel who Shares My Joy, and many more. Gruen makes clear that as humans we are held safe in a

Everything Belongs
The Gift of Contemplative Prayer
Richard Rohr

Summary
This popular and bestselling book of the renowned Franciscan challenges people to move beyond the comfort of
a settled life toward an understanding of themselves that is rooted in their connection to God. Only when they

Discrimination against gays and lesbians extends from the highest echelons of the Catholic Church to the pews.

Foundations of an African Ethic


Beyond the Universal Claims of Western Morality
Benezet Bujo

Summary
In this groundbreaking book, Bénézet Bujo, a leading voice in African Christian theology, offers an informed
critique of Western ethics and lays the theoretical groundwork for a new African ethic. By skillfully drawing on
themes from African life such as marriage, therapy, and art, Bujo exposes the shortcomings of the philosophical
anthropology implicit in Western ethics, comparing Western theories of natural law, discourse ethics, and
communitarianism with the African emphasis on community and remembrance. He then considers whether African
ethics can account for central Western values such as autonomy, freedom, and individual identity. Finally, he
considers how African ethics both challenges the Church and contributes to its richness, suggesting that an
African palaver ethic can integrate the best features of communitarianism and discourse ethics. This timely
contribution to African theology will be of special interest to students of religion, comparative and non-Western
philosophy, anthropology, and African studies, as well as those intrigued by ongoing debates about universal

Gateway to Hope
An Exploration of Failure
Maria Boulding

Summary
Poignant reflections on loss and its meanings are collected in this succinct volume aimed at a broad audience of
seekers, parents, businesspeople, and the suffering alike. With each passage embracing human failure and loss,
the elegant musings of Sister Maria Boulding speak gently and eloquently to those beyond the walls of convents-
to those who set their goals high, yet struggle to grasp their own limitations and reconcile them with God, as
well as to those who second guess their path in life, and to worshipers mourning the premature loss of friends
and family. With each meditation on loss, Sister Boulding creates a spiritual, contemplative grid against which
readers can interpret the setbacks of their life.

Summary
A convincing new study of the Glastonbury legends which suggests that the Shroud may have come to

Shedding new light on the Grail stories and the arrival of Christianity to Somerset, this book illustrates important

Henri de Blois, Abbot of Glastonbury, assisted in the transmission of the Grail stories, and that his family line were
in possession of the Shroud and first exhibited it at Lirey in France in 1356. She also examines why there was

God Help Me! These People Are Driving Me Nuts! (2nd Edition)
Making Peace with Difficult People
Gregory K. Popcak

Summary
Generous helpings of humor and abundant practical advice make this Christian spirituality book a useful tool for
dealing with difficult relationships. Old enemies, unreasonable employers, petty neighbors, wayward children, or
an inattentive spouse can sabotage even the most devout Christian and lead to unhealthy emotions and
destructive behavior. Laying out the components of the P-E-A-C-E process, this handbook presents strategies
for understanding the causes of problem behavior-in others or in oneself-taking corrective action, and options if
those strategies fail. Questions such as How can I respectfully and lovingly bring about changes in my life and in
relationships? How do I cope with people who will not change their self-destructive ways no matter how hard I
try to help them? and Is it ever acceptable to sever ties with a friend or family member? are examined and
addressed in this sympathetic, results-oriented guide to keeping faith in everyday life.

Grammar of the Church Slavonic Language


Alypy Gamanovich, John Shaw

Summary
The Church Slavonic (Slavic) language was devised in the ninth century. Based on Old Bulgarian, it was created
by the Greek missionary brothers Cyril and Methodius. As the first written Slavic language it has become the
mother of all modern Slavic languages and continues in daily use in the services of the Slavic Orthodox Churches.
(Russian, Bulgarian, Polish etc.) This is a comprehensive grammar of the Church Slavonic language, covering
etymology, parts of speech, and syntax. This English edition was translated from the Russian and includes an
explanation of grammatical points that would be taken for granted by a native Russian speaker. Long used as a
seminary textbook both in North America and Russia, Archbishop Alypy's work is an absolutely unique publication
in English and is essential for anyone desiring to study Church Slavonic, from beginning learner to advanced
scholar. Texts for practice are largely drawn from the Gospels. This is both a unique and authoritative work.

The Heart of the World


An Introduction to Contemplative Christianity
Thomas Keating

Summary
The transcendent experience that many Christians seek in Eastern religions is abundantly available to those who
make use of the suggestions in this introduction to contemplative Christianity. The Christian heritage contains a
rich contemplative wisdom, literature, and practice, and this volume is written for those who would like to find
enrichment in spiritual practices grounded in non-Christian religions while retaining basic Christian commitments.
Traditional Christian subjects such as sacrifice, redemption, salvation, faith, and prayer are discussed to foster
understanding of their contemplative aspects. Explanations on how practices such as Lectio Divina clear the
mind of the hectic nature of everyday life and help prepare the heart for profound listening to the divine within
are also included.

Herman: A Wilderness Saint


From Sarov, Russia to Kodiak, Alaska
Sergei Korsun, Lydia Black, Daniel Marshall

Summary
Since his canonization in 1970, St. Herman has been remembered for his just treatment of native peoples and his
respect of the environment. Explaining how it came to be that this simple Russian Orthodox monk eventually

today.

History in His Hands


A Christian Narrative of the West
Brennan Pursell

God's intrinsic and guiding role throughout human history

Summary
Opposing the common exclusion of God from an active role in human history, this work explains how His role
exists and can be witnessed in humanity's complicated dualities-in time and space, war and peace, wealth and
poverty, and love and hatred. Arguing that history is a master plan-that God, who is reason and love, wills
human existence-Dr. Pursell weaves his thesis through both divine revelation and specific historical events. He
explains in accessible terms that God's plan for human history is that of unity in opposing forces; that historical
periods are secular constructs-despite human ingenuity and industrialization, all humankind is part of one

How to Find True Love


Gregory K. Popcak

Summary
In this reassuring and informative resource, Christian relationship counselor Greg Popcak takes a wide view of
love and introduces new possibilities of finding different kinds of love everywhere in life-among couples, parents,
friends, family, and strangers. Every encounter with another person offers a transformative moment: a chance to
transform one's self and others and derive strength, joy, and grace from the moment. Drawing from
contemporary tales and ancient wisdom, this collection includes stories of couples who discover each other
anew, friends who help each other through severe illness, couples who learn to accept their family's messiness,
adult children who find ways to love their parents only when they are failing in health, and strangers who stand
up to protect one another simply because they recognize their shared human dignity. Organized into three parts-
the three ways in which to find love-this guidebook illustrates love's rich variety.

Scriptural Reflections According to the Spiritual Exercises

Summary
This is a book for those who desire to pray with Sacred Scripture. Following the spiritual itinerary of the Spiritual
Exercises by Ignatius of Loyola, forty reflections offer a great resource for those beginning to pray with
Scripture. They provide accompaniment in the first, tentative steps of such blessed prayer. For those who
already practice prayer with Scripture, and who seek new depth in that prayer, these emotionally rich reflections

In the Name of Jesus


Reflections on Christian Leadership
Henri J. M. Nouwen

Summary
Henri Nouwen was a spiritual thinker with an unusual capacity to write about the life of Jesus and the love of
God in ways that have inspired countless people to trust life more fully. Most widely read among the over 40
books Father Nouwen wrote is In the Name of Jesus. For a society that measures successful leadership in terms
of the effectiveness of the individual, Father Nouwen offers a counter definition that is witnessed by a
"communal and mutual experience." For Nouwen, leadership cannot function apart from the community. His
wisdom is grounded in the foundation that we are a people "called." This beautiful guide to Christian Leadership is
the rich fruit of Henri Nouwen's own journey as one of the most influential spirtiual leaders of the 20th century.

Intimacy with God (3rd Edition)


An Introduction to Centering Prayer
Thomas Keating

Summary
A poetic and accessible introduction to the method of Centering Prayer, this guide explains its origins, theological
basis, and psychology by drawing on the writings of important Catholic figures, such as St. Teresa of Avila and
St. John of the Cross, and significant texts, such as The Cloud of Unknowing. Describing the theological basis for
the Centering Prayer while staying rooted in the heart of a practice that is very personal and intimate, the study
explores how harmful attitudes and beliefs about God can distort a positive relationship with the divine. With a
careful balance of both Christian and Buddhist philosophy, the volume also discusses the psychological barriers
and levels of resistance that contemplatives must face and bolsters seekers with supportive practices like Lectio
Divina (holy reading) and praying the rosary. Updated to include a new foreword, this revised edition of a much

Jesus, the Gift of Love


Jean Vanier

Summary
Not since Fulton Sheen's majestic A Life of Christ has a writer captured for his time the beauty, the power, and
the holiness of Jesus. But more than this, Jean Vanier writes with a go-to-the-heart simplicity that makes the
man Jesus come alive in all his humanity, revealing his immense goodness and his bountiful love for everyone he
meets. This book is the story of Jesus as it is told in the four Gospels, brought together into one meditation. The
author says that, "Together they give a clear portrait of Jesus as he was and as he lived, a clear vision of his
message. From his conception to his death and resurrection, we see a man manifestly sent by God to reveal
God, to point to a way of universal love, of truth, of justice, and of peace."

Job and the Mystery of Suffering


Spiritual Reflections
Richard Rohr

Summary
Richard Rohr, internationally known retreat leader, speaker and writer, plumbs the depths of the Job's story and
its relevance for us today. Rohr strips Christian faith down to the essentials, beyond glib answers and a "hand-
me-down" experience of God, and points the way to true knowing. In this invigorating exploration, the tension
between suffering and faith becomes a powerful means to an authentic, open connection with the divine.

Karl Rahner
Mystic of Everyday Life
Harvey D. Egan

Summary
Karl Rahner was the most influential Catholic theologian of the 20th century. His writings helped prepare the way
for Vatican II and did much to shape the Church in the post-conciliar period. Because of his intellectual
influence, however, his significant contributions to spirituality are often overlooked. In this book, a colleague of
Rahner's (and fellow Jesuit) presents short passages of Rahner's work with clear and engaging explanation of
Rahner's Christian mystical vision.

Summary
This is the English edition of the classic Russian textbook designed for parents to teach their children "all the

society that raises serious and agonizing questions the author does not teach in naive stories that remain stories
only. It offers an overview of the whole of the Old and New Testaments as well as instruction on prayer, worship
and what it means to live by the teaching of the Ten Commandments and the Beatitudes. Lavishly bound and
made to last. Well illustrated with black and white photographs and icons.

Lectio Divina
Renewing the Ancient Practice of Praying the Scriptures
M. Basil Pennington

Summary
Lectio divina is "letting our Divine Friend speak to us through his inspired and inspiring Word," according to M.
Basil Pennington, the late priest, retreat master, and prominent lecturer in the Centering Prayer movement. This
ancient Christian practice requires faith, humility, openness, and fidelity. Father Pennington sets the process of
praying the Scriptures in the context of meditation, contemplation, compassion, and action. He calls it "a way of
friendship" wherein we pay attention to "the love letters from the Lord." Lectio, as a satisfying mental and
emotional experience, can be enhanced by reading different translations of the Bible, using commentaries,
participating in Bible study groups, and using the resources of Scripture-oriented websites.

Living Without Hypocrisy


Spiritual Counsels of the Holy Elders of Optina
Optina Elders, George Schaefer

Summary
Now in its second printing, this modest work is an anthology of spiritual advice given by various of the
nineteenth-century teachers of Optina Monastery in central Russia, organized thematically under headings such
as spiritual warfare, the love of neighbor, faith, the will of God, the education of children, the commandments of
God, the path of salvation, etc. Each piece of advice varies in length from a single sentence to a full paragraph.
Pithy, immediately accessible, and universally applicable, these counsels resemble the sayings of the ancient
Desert Fathers. Appropriate both for prolonged study and for daily devotional reading.

Luther and His World


An Introduction
Graham Tomlin

Summary
In this vivid account of the Reformation, readers learn about the process that led up to Luther's rebellion against
the late medieval church and understand what drove him

Graham Tomlin brings the world of the early reformers to life as he explores their battles and disagreements and
investigates their fight over what they considered to be correct doctrine, and the future of the early Church.
The result is a truly illuminating account of Martin Luther-the central figure in the Protestant Reformation of the

A Manual of the Orthodox Church's Divine Services (2nd Edition)


Dmitry Sokolof

Summary
This is perhaps the most comprehensive work on the Orthodox Church's divine services currently available in the
English language. It was originally translated and printed before the Russian Revolution, but has since been re-
edited to reflect current standards of English-language liturgical usage. The author begins with a discussion of
the nature and origin of Divine services. He describes the church building, the persons who perform divine
services and their vestments, the cycles of public worship, Great Vespers, Matins, Divine Liturgy, festal services,
and different ministrations: Baptism and Chrismation, the Coronation Anointing of the Tsar, Consecration of a
Church, Confession, Ordination, Matrimony, Unction, Prayer Services, Monastic Tonsure and Burial.

Meditations on the Parables of Jesus


Thomas Keating

Summary
Revising much of the content originally published in The Kingdom of God Is Like, and adding selected material
from Awakenings and Reawakenings, Thomas Keating continues to stir the Christian imagination with insightful
commentary on the parables of the Bible. Including the Mustard Seed, the Narrow Door, the Penitent Woman,
the Sower, the Prodigal Son, and others, this collection of corresponding meditations renews the voice and vigor
of each parable's deeper meaning-so often overlooked through familiarity and fame. Originally told to seekers in
an ancient land, each parable-packed with clues about the meaning of life, the nature of God, and the purpose
of creation-has as much relevance and resonance as ever for both teaching the lessons of God and his mercy
and for understanding the daily struggles of today's fast-paced world.

The Mormon Cult


A Former Missionary Reveals the Secrets of Mormon Mind Control
Jack B. Worthy

Summary
Scrutinizing the experience of growing up Mormon, this personal narrative tells the story of one man's
disillusionment with his faith and subsequent excommunication from the Church. This account reveals what is
posited as inherent racism and sexism within the church and seeks to expose the controlling methods of
indoctrination and the harsh process of excommunication. The basic tenets of the religion are explained, personal
stories and analyses are shared, and church authorities are cited to support the claims of extreme gender and
racial discrimination. From unknowing follower to angry rebel, and finally to a content, worldly man, this book
recounts the experience of a survivor who feels the duty to explain his truth.

The Mourner's Book of Faith


30 Days of Enlightenment
Alan D. Wolfelt

Summary
Experiencing the death of a loved one can often lead to questioning or abandoning one's spirituality, yet in this
compassionate book, Dr. Alan Wolfelt explains that the essential need to mourn and question the meaning of life
and death is not inconsistent with faith but instead is a reflection of an ongoing and ever-deepening relationship
with God. The book explores all types of losses and viewpoints, containing favorite quotations on faith from a
variety of religious traditions. It explains that the need to mourn and having faith are not mutually exclusive and
are, in fact, both essential components of the journey through grief. This compassionate guide explains how
embracing grief can deepen one's faith and lead to a more meaningful, joyful life.

The Mystery of Christian Worship


Odo Casel

Summary
A Benedictine monk at Maria Laach, Odo Casel was a major force in the movement for renewal of liturgy in this
century. He objected to rationalistic or anthropocentric interpretations of the Christian religion that would reduce
it either to a collection of doctrines or to a moral code. Instead, he insisted that the core of Christian faith is the
worship of a sacred mystery. For Casel, liturgy means "the making real of the mystery of Christ in the new
alliance throughout the whole church, in all centuries; in it her healing and glory are made fact." This essay
presents the heart of Casel's theology of mystery, summing up his view that the encounter with the divine
Mystery in liturgy is "the most central and most essential action of the Christian religion."

The Naked Now


Learning to See as the Mystics See
Richard Rohr

Summary
For Christians seeking a way of thinking outside of strict dualities, this guide explores methods for letting go of
division and living in the present. Drawn from the Gospels, Jesus, Paul, and the great Christian contemplatives,
this examination reveals how many of the hidden truths of Christianity have been misunderstood or lost and how
to read them with the eyes of the mystics rather than interpreting them through rational thought. Filled with
sayings, stories, quotations, and appeals to the heart, specific methods for identifying dualistic thinking are
presented with simple practices for stripping away ego and the fear of dwelling in the present.

New Voices in Catholic Theology


Anna Bonta Moreland, Joseph Curran

Summary
The last several years have witnessed an exciting expansion in Catholic theology, with more younger scholars
being drawn to dedicate themselves to enriching the tradition for the 21st century and beyond. This volume
celebrates the work of one such group, scholars who trained under Michael J. Buckley at Boston College. On
topics as varied as secularity, Spanish mysticism, religious pluralism, and Catholic education, Fr. Buckley's rich
influence as a teacher and mentor shines through. This book serves as both an introduction to much of the best
original work being done in theology today, and a reminder of the legacy a great scholar can leave.

Offensive Conduct
My Life on the Line
John "Hog" Hannah, Tom Hale, Andre Tippett

Summary
This revealing, introspective look at an athlete's intense drive to succeed in football also explores the adjustment
to life after the final whistle. John "Hog" Hannah was a two-time All-American for the Crimson Tide under Bear
Bryant. Hannah starred for the Patriots from 1973 to 1985 and was one of the most beloved New England
Patriots players of all time. In his autobiography, the greatest offensive lineman in the history of the sport
candidly discusses the price of dominating the trenches. Hannah also recounts his battles on the field against
the Raiders and Dolphins and off the field with Patriots management. An introspective man who found religion
later in life, Hannah describes the forces that shaped his drive to succeed and his addiction to control anything
that threatened to separate him from perpetuating the "glory of greatness." Reflecting on how this mind-set

On Becoming Who We Are


Passionate Musings in the Winter of Life
Barbara Fiand

Summary
Addressing the eternal conflict of new ideas challenging old practices, Catholic scholar Barbara Fiand offers a
poignant resource for seekers and faithful alike, determined to resolve their own struggles between the rational
world and the spiritual one. Identifying numerous moments when old ways of viewing reality begin to crumble in
light of new information, Fiand draws freely from the findings of physicists and philosophers to advance her
argument that old religions can be remain current, and even better understood, when complemented with
advances in science and technology. Encouraging her readers to trust science and embrace the wonders of new
mysteries, the faithfully devout can find spiritual treasures far greater and more satisfying than settled doctrines
alone can offer.

On the Body
A Contemporary Theology of the Human Person
Carlo Maria Martini

Summary
On the Body is unlike any other by this author. It is carefully structured in five parts, and is a major study on the
catechesis of the human body and the spirit that lies within. The content for this work comes out of the
Cardinal's 20 years as a bishop and it is from this experience that he regards this topic as being central
theologically, anthropologically, and pedagogically. Above all, the book expresses the over concern that
consumes our fitness-oriented body culture that has become such a huge phenomenon in our time.

Stories, Devotions, and Pictures of the Holy Virgin from Around the World

The Paradox of Power


From Control to Compassion
Michael Crosby

Summary
Drawing from real-life examples as well as theory, this treatise explores the potential for inspiration and wisdom
that resides in power and demonstrates how the creative energy of power can heal and invigorate relationships,
marriages, and families, and benefit larger organizations such as corporations, churches, and even nations. For
the citizens of a political economy and country like the United States, or members of the faith community of the
Roman Catholic Church, issues related to the negative use of power, such as control and repression, have
dominated the discussion. The destructive manifestations and consequences of power are critiqued in the early
chapters of this book. In subsequent chapters the forgotten aspects of power-its positive influences on families,
communities and organizations-are discussed. In addition, the guide presents a vision of a Trinitarian God that
can be applied to all relationships, whether personal, communal, or collective.

The People's Bible


The Remarkable History of the King James Version
Derek Wilson, Diarmaid MacCulloch

Summary
Now available in paperback, the story of one of the most influential, provocative, ambitious projects of
its day-the translation of the Bible into English Beautifully presented and based on extensive scholarly
research, this accessible volume traces the fascinating history of the Authorized Version of the King James Bible
from its earliest predecessors through its remarkable influence on the church, literature, and wider society
throughout the English speaking world. In 1604, the new King James I convened a meeting at Hampton Court to
address the problem of the Puritans. The recommendation, one of unparalleled political and religious significance,
was for the authorization of a new translation of the Bible, one that would be accessible to the common people,
and one that would be placed in every Church in his realm. Within three years a team of 47 scholars on six
Lion Hudson
committees had begun work in Oxford, Cambridge, and Westminster, and the fruit of their labors-the Authorized
9780745955599 Version-was published in 1611.

Politicizing the Bible


The Roots of Historical Criticism and the Secularization of Scripture 1300-1700
Scott W. Hahn, Benjamin Wiker

Summary
Resisting the typical, dry methods of contemporary scholarship, this powerful examination revisits the biblical
days of life-and-death conflict, struggles for power between popes and kings, and secret alliances of
intellectuals united by a desire to pit worldly goals against the spiritual priorities of the church. This account
looks beyond the pretense of neutrality and objectivity often found in secular study, and brings to light the
appropriation of scripture by politically motivated interpreters. Questioning the techniques taken for granted at
divinity schools worldwide, their origins are traced to the writings of Machiavelli and Marsilio of Padua, the
political projects of Henry VIII, Thomas Hobbes, and John Locke, and the quest for an empire of science on the
part of Descartes and Spinoza. Intellectual and inspiring, an argument is made for bringing Christianity back to
biblical literacy.

The Power of the Ring (2nd Edition)


The Spiritual Vision Behind the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit
Stratford Caldecott

Summary
Digging deep into J. R. R. Tolkien's spiritual biography-his religious scholarship and his love of both Christian and
pagan myth-Stratford Caldecott offers a critical study of how the acclaimed author effectively created a vivid
Middle Earth using the familiar rites and ceremonies of human history. And while readers and moviegoers alike
may appreciate the fantasy world of The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings trilogy, few know that in life, Tolkien
was a devout Roman Catholic and that the characters, the events, and the general morality of each novel are
informed by the dogmas of his faith. Revised and updated, this acclaimed study of Tolkien's achievement-
previously released as Secret Fire in the UK-includes commentary on Peter Jackson's film adaptations and
explores many of the fascinating stories and letters published after Tolkien's death.

Prayer of the Heart in Christian and Sufi Mysticism


Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

Summary
Guiding the reader through the stages of mystical prayer-a way to create a living relationship with the Divine
within the heart-this book draws upon Christian and Sufi sources such as St. Teresa of Avila, 'Attâr, St. John of
the Cross, and Rûmî. Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee describes the stages of prayer: how prayer is first born of need,
but then takes one deep within the heart, into the stages of union and ecstasy. Through mystical prayer, one is
drawn into the silence of real communion with God. Here, in the silence within the heart, a meeting and merging
takes place that carries one beyond the self into the mystery of divine presence. This exploration delves into the
secret of how to pray without ceasing, in which prayer becomes alive within the heart, and includes a chapter
on the need to pray for the well-being of the Earth. It brings together the Christian and Sufi mystical traditions
and will benefit any practitioner of prayer who is drawn to discover a relationship with God within their heart.

A Psalter for Prayer


An Adaptation of the Classic Miles Coverdale Translation, Augmented by Prayers and Instructional
Material Drawn from Church Slavonic and Other Orthodox Christian Sources
David Mitchell James

Summary
Reaching back hundreds of years, this volume is the first major English edition to include all the prayers needed
to read the Slavic Psalter at home in the Orthodox tradition. The contents include many texts traditionally
printed in Orthodox Psalters and not easily found in English. With psalms and biblical canticles adapted from the
classic Coverdale translation of the Book of Psalms and the King James Version of the Bible, this record has been
carefully edited to agree with the original Greek of the Septuagint as well as with the Latin and Slavonic church
translations.

The Quest for the Creed (2nd Edition)


What the Apostles Really Believed, and Why It Matters
Dwight Longenecker

Summary
Demonstrating a deep understanding of scripture, church history, doctrine, and pastoral work, this exploration
takes a fresh look at a prayer many Catholics commonly zip past while saying the Rosary: the Apostle's Creed.
The study brushes the centuries of dust off each of the elements in which churchgoers intone "we believe"
without pausing to reflect on the prayer's meaning, confronting this overlooked component of mass in a zingy,
Chestertonian style that will appeal to discerning readers of popular theology and apologetics. Delving into the
startling statements that this creed makes about the nature of God, man, and the universe, this guide once
again reminds Catholics how to be surprised and challenged by the paradoxical beauty that the Christian faith
finds in everyday life.

Raising Abel
The Recovery of the Eschatological Imagination
James Alison

Summary
Raising Abel is a theological exploration of a huge change of mind: the change which the apostolic group
underwent as a result of the Resurrection-and how that paradigm can transform the world today. Making use of
the thought of Rene Girard, the author shows how the God who was revealed by Jesus subverted the violent
language, imagery and expectations of the early Christians.

Religions for Peace


A Call for Solidarity to the Religions of the World
Francis Cardinal Arinze

Summary
Drawing on his vast experience and deep-seated Catholic faith, Francis Cardinal Arinze offers insights and ideas
that give rise to a new, hopeful era of interreligious cooperation. Exploring the fundamental principles of several
key religions, this chronicle pursues a singular message that emphasizes the fundamental requirement for peace-
respect for God, respect for the human person. Referring to the exploding occurrences of sectarian-fueled
violence in every country, leaders of all faiths are forced to answer hard questions about the role of religion in a
world that is increasingly becoming a base for unrest and war. Addressing these challenges directly, this
thoughtful study simplifies the myriad abstract questions blocking world peace, while validating each argument
with real-world solutions-a refreshing reminder that people of all religious devotions can speak together in the
name of common peace.

Rescuing Regina
The Battle to Save a Friend from Deportation and Death
Josephe Marie Flynn, Helen Prejean

Summary
What is it like to be a young mother threatened with deportation to the country whose government has
imprisoned you and whose soldiers have raped and tortured you? You don't want to leave your children behind,
but how can you take them with you, knowing that your homeland, ruled by chaos and violence, is notorious for
murdering failed asylum seekers?

Regina Bakala found herself in just this situation ten years after escaping the Congo and settling in the United
States. Upon arrival, Regina had worked with an immigration lawyer, then joyfully reunited with her husband, also
a Congolese torture survivor, and had two children. Life was challenging but full of hope until the night there was
a knock at the door and immigration agents burst in. They forced Regina from her home as her family watched,

The Restoration of Christian Culture


John Senior, Andrew Senior, Dr. David Allen White

Summary
A sequel to The Death of Christian Culture, this spiritual treatise covers social, cultural, and political topics. It
explores the importance of religious knowledge and faith to the health of a culture, provides a historical sketch
of the change in cultural and educational standards over the last two centuries, and illustrates how literary and
other visual arts either contribute to a culture or conspire to tear it down. Compared to a series of sermons, this
analysis explains that there is a continuing extinction of the cultural patrimony of ancient Greece, Rome,
medieval Europe, and the early modern period of Western civilization, owing to the pervasive bureaucratization,
mechanization, and standardization of increasing materialism.

Retelling Genesis
Barry Louis Polisar, Roni Polisar

Summary
Murder, deceit, and treachery are just some of the themes present in these 13 stories from the first book of the
Hebrew Bible. Retold from the perspective of oft overlooked secondary characters-including Eve, Cain, Esau, and
Noah's wife-these stories only refer to events that appear in Biblical text. In the classic Talmudic tradition of
searching for truth by weighing all sides, author Barry Louis Polisar allows these interweaving stories to unfold,
revealing tales of true spirituality.

The Risk of Education


Discovering Our Ultimate Destiny
Luigi Giussani

Summary
This is an English translation of an Italian work first published in 1995. Based in Milan, Italy, Giussani heads the
Communion and Liberation movement and is a council for the Congregation for the Clergy and the Pontifical
Council for the Laity. He discusses education in terms of fundamental truths, in particular, the element of faith.
It presents the argument that without the fundamental factors of tradition, the young person is merely a fragile
leaf separated from its branch.

The Rule of Benedict (2nd Edition)


A Spirituality for the 21st Century
Joan Chittister

Summary
This new edition of a classic religious text combines the timeless wisdom of Benedict of Nursia's Rule with the
perceptive commentary of a renowned Benedictine mystic and scholar. In her new introduction to the Rule, the
author boldly claims that Benedict's sixth-century text is the only one of great traditions that directly touches
the contemporary issues facing the human community-stewardship, conversion, communication, reflection,
contemplation, humility, and equality. Tracing Benedict's original Rule paragraph by paragraph, it expands its
principles into the larger context of spiritual living in a secular world and makes the seemingly archaic instructions
relevant for a contemporary audience. A new foreword, updated content, an appendix, and a recommended
calendar for reading the entries and commentaries make this an invaluable resource for solitary or communal
contemplation.

Sacred Threshold
Crossing the Inner Barrier to a Deeper Love
Paula D'Arcy

Summary
Paula D'Arcy talks about some of the sacred crucibles in her life-moments when life took her to places she'd
never anticipated and asked her to yield to things that could not be changed. The book includes her story of
Morrie Schwartz, of Tuesdays with Morrie, and of the relationship they forged in the final eighteen months of his
life. As Morrie wrestled with his imminent death, they both grew to feel a keen sense of their common humanity
and a responsibility to give back to this world by helping others discover all that's possible in their lives.This
story, and others gathered here, radically challenges one's understanding of love.

The Saint for Shalom


How Pope John Paul II Transformed Catholic-Jewish Relations
Eugene J. Fisher, Leon Klenicki

Summary
This treasury bears witness to the extraordinary contributions made by John Paul II to the historic dialogue
between Jews and Christians. The pontiff devoted much of his papacy to reconciliation between the two
congregations and their beliefs. By courageously confronting one of civilization's longest and most tragic religious
conflicts, he built bridges of respect and understanding fostering a historic rapprochement between Catholics
and Jews. This complete collection of John Paul II's public writings on Jews, Judaism, and Israel serves as a
model for reconciliation, inspiring both believers and non-believers to pursue deeper understanding and work
together in harmony to help improve the world and strive for peace.

The Scandalous Message of James


Faith Without Works Is Dead
Elsa Tamez, Mortimer Arias, Pamela Sparr

Summary
Embedded in the New Testament is a five-chapter uprising known as the Epistle of James. This provocative, and

Jesus' "preferential option for the poor." Now with a detailed study guide, this book can be used by Christians
everywhere to study the radical message of James and reflect on what it means to be a true Christian.

Scripture in the Tradition


Henri de Lubac, Peter Casarella

Summary
The Crossroad Publishing Company once again makes available this examination of the quality and quantity of the
"spiritual understanding" of Scripture that developed during the Christian centuries. Far from believing that
modern exegetical insights and abilities make earlier interpretations of Scripture naive curiosity, de Lubac
communicates to the modern reader his own appreciation and knowledge of the irreplaceably creative role that
exegesis of the church fathers and of medieval theologians played in the survival and formulating of Christianity.
Even more fundamentally, he links the process of exegesis to the permanent foundation of Christian thought,
demonstrating that all forms of scriptural exegesis are part of the ongoing reflective life of God and the process
by which the human race learns to share in this mystery.

Secularity and the Gospel


Being Missionaries to Our Children
Ronald Rolheiser

Summary
In the recent past, "missionary work" often meant bringing our familiar Gospel to faraway places and other
peoples. In secular America today, however, even our own children know little about the Gospel. In this
important contribution, Ronald Rolheiser, author of The Holy Longing, offers original chapters on the question of
secularity, then introduces leading voices in Catholic thought to show how Christian faith can thrive in a secular
world.

Seeking with All My Heart


Encountering God's Presence Today
Paula D'Arcy

Summary
This collection of insights, parables, and meditations from the Christian spiritual and literary tradition helps to
reveal the presence of the divine within the world and within oneself. Drawing from both classical and
contemporary sources, including Jesus, the Lord's Prayer, Job and the Psalms, Tolstoy, Pascal, Carlo Carretto,
and Annie Dillard, these writings foster a deep appreciation of the spiritual practice of being present and address
subjects such as grief, healing, transformation, and hope. Directed at those who are seeking a deeper
appreciation of both God and self, these reflections challenge flimsy mental constructs and comfortable
conclusions about the world.

The Sermon on the Mount


Inspiring the Moral Imagination
Dale C. Allison

Summary
Too often the Sermon on the Mount has been interpreted as though it were a book itself rather than a portion of
a book. Dale Allison insists on the contrary that the full meaning of these chapters in Matthew's Gospel can be
seen only in relation to the broader literary context of the Gospel as a whole, with its Jewish Christian
orientation. Indeed, the Sermon and the moral imperatives it contains must be understood: 1) in relation to the
example provided by Jesus' words and deeds elsewhere in the Gospel; 2) with reference to the community of
believers that constitutes the intended audience of Matthew's Gospel; and 3) in terms of what the Gospel says
elsewhere about the end of the age. The Sermon does not present a simple set of rules, perhaps only intended
for a small and select group within the Christian community, but seeks to instill a moral vision and to inspire the
moral imagination of all who would follow Jesus.

A Silent Action
Engagements with Thomas Merton
Rowan Williams

Summary
The life of Thomas Merton was, to a great extent, one of dialogue with people who were either distant or dead.
While forging just such a relationship with him, the Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams explores the mind
and influence of Thomas Merton through essays on such topics as the connection Merton had with Paul
Evdokimov, the Orthodox theologian, and Karl Barth, the Reformed theologian. Rowan also takes note of the
impact of books on Merton's thought, spanning from Fyodor Dostoevsky and Dietrich Bonhoeffer to St. John of
the Cross. Through his essays, Williams shows that he and Merton share the regard that Christian life without a
contemplative dimension is incomplete and, furthermore, that a contemplative life is accessible not only to those
living in monasteries but to anyone who seeks an "interiorized" monasticism. The mystery of friendship-an
enduring relationship held together not only by affinity, shared questions, and common interests but also by the
Fons Vitae awareness that each can help the other in pilgrimage-is worthy of inclusion in the long list of additions to the

Slaying the Dragons


Destroying Myths in the History of Science and Faith
Allan Chapman

Summary
In this lively and often surprising study, Chapman examines popular misunderstandings about key events in the
history of science-faith relations

For those interested in science-faith relations, this important study examines popular misunderstandings about
key events in history. It covers the major episodes such as Galileo's trial, the Wilberforce-Huxley debate, and the
Scopes trial of 1925, but also looks further back through the medieval period to the Classical age, revealing how
these events have acquired mythical and misleading statuses. Chapman exposes the facts that have been
forgotten and the contemporary opinions that have been supplanted by modern propaganda. Slaying the Dragons
is an important book that strips away layers of misunderstanding and misinterpretation.

The Soul of A Leader


Finding Your Path to Success and Fulfillment
Margaret Benefiel

Summary
Demonstrating the principle that soulfulness at work is a way of being and doing, this guide provides new
perspectives on the qualities of leadership. Three main sections elaborate on the themes of choosing the path,
staying on track, and persevering to the end. Drawing from interviews with outstanding leaders-including Tom
and Kate Chappell, the founders of Tom's of Maine; Bob Glassman, co-chairman of Wainwright Bank & Trust;
Desmond Tutu; and The Edge of rock band U2-and supported with guided questions in each section, this book is
an essential addition to the bookshelf of anyone who wants to lead with soul. In an environment where leaders
are rewarded for their drive, decisiveness, productivity, and long work hours, the spiritual well-being of a leader
may get short shrift, and harm can come to both the leader and the organization this individual serves.
Challenging the assumptions that effective leaders must sell their souls, cut corners, cook the books, and let go

The Spirit of the Liturgy


Romano Guardini

Summary
Originally written in 1918, this profound reflection on the nature of liturgical worship still stands as a guiding light
for today's renewal of worship and prayer. In poetic terms, it clarifies the underlying principles and existential
implications of the belief that when Christians join in the Eucharist and other liturgical celebrations, they do so
not as discrete individuals but as interconnected members of the one People of God.

Towards a Papacy in Communion


Perspectives from Vatican Councils I & II
Hermann J. Pottmeyer

Summary
Since they seem to require a very centralized conception of the Church and its administration, the decrees of
Vatican I are often taken to pose problems both for ecumenical dialogue and for discussion within the Catholic
Church. Hermann Pottmeyer, however, shows that the centralist interpretation of Vatican I is neither the binding
nor the correct interpretation. He undertakes a careful examination both of the historical conditions that gave
rise to the conception of the pope as an absolute monarch and of the Council documents themselves. Moreover,
in the documents of Vatican II he finds the foundation for a vision of papal ministry understood within the
context of a Church conceived in terms of "communion." This ecclesiology of communion formulated at Vatican
II, taken together with a correct interpretation of the teachings of Vatican I, points the way beyond a centralist
understanding of the papacy and offers the framework for a new dialogue on papal primacy.

The Varieties of Vernacular Mysticism


1350?1550
Bernard McGinn

Summary
More than 25 years in the making, this magisterial volume uncovers the riches of one of the greatest periods of
mystical wisdom in Christian history: the "vernacular" spirituality of the late medieval period in Europe. The
compilation incorporates more than a century of new research from around the globe, demonstrating how this
period gave rise to many mystical writers who remain influential even today, including Julian of Norwich, Eckhart's
follower Jan van Ruusbroec, and the inspirational doctor of the church and visionary, Catherine of Siena. With
unmatched knowledge of the primary works and scholarship around the globe, this study illustrates the unique
genius of each mystical teacher as well as how they build on one another's insights to pursue a life in God's
presence. Specific types of mysticism covered include Trinitarian, late medieval Italian, renaissance, and the
golden age of English mysticism.

Warning: When I Am an Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple


Jenny Joseph

Summary
Voted Britain's best-loved poem by viewers of BBC TV's Bookworm, this perennial favorite with its declaration of
defiance against convention appeals to all those with a secret desire to throw off the strictures of propriety and
set out deliberately to shock and be outrageous. It sums up this wish perfectly with its pronouncement: "When I
am an old woman I shall wear purple/With a red hat that doesn't go, and doesn't suit me/I shall sit down on the
pavement when I'm tired/And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells." Reprinted here as a gift book
with line drawings by Pythia Ashton-Jewell, this edition of the classic is ideal both for those who know and love
the poem and for those who have yet to relish its gleeful anticipation.

What the Bible Really Teaches


About Crucifixion, Resurrection, Salvation, the Second Coming, and Eternal Life

Bible, suffused with a profound and clear understanding of theology, this is a book that will enlighten many and
help the many Christians who struggle with these issues.

When Wisdom Speaks


Living Experiences of Biblical Women
Lyn Holley Doucet, Robin Hebert

Summary
Female voices of the Bible have been silenced throughout much of history. What would it be like to get to know
the women of the Bible as real, living figures whose lives can challenge our own? What can we learn from their
faith journeys? What would it be like to pray alongside them? Two lively spiritual directors take us into the world
of the women of the Bible. Provoked by the desperation of the Canaanite woman, empowered by Mary's fiat,
affirmed by the loyalty of Mary Magdalene and challenged by Ruth's fidelity, Doucet and Hebert enter into a new
sisterhood with these active and contemplative holy women who emerge out of history. All of the stories link
these holy women from the past with contemporary women, all of them longing after God's own heart.

Freedom from Judgment, Guilt and Fear of Punishment
John Jacob Raub

Summary
Writing with great simplicity about our unbreakable union with God, Raub maintains that it is only because we
deny this union that we judge and condemn ourselves--and others. And he shows how it is only our belief in the
God who loves us as we are--not as we should be--that brings us freedom from guilt and fear.

Why Catholics Can't Sing (2nd Edition)


Revised and Updated With New Grand Conclusions and Good Advice
Thomas Day

Summary
In this informative and entertaining critique of music in the Catholic Church, Thomas Day outlines a stinging
indictment of the influence of popular culture on American Catholicism, particularly as expressed in church music.
Taking aim at the Irish-American repertoire of songs that overwhelms Catholic music in America, Day assails the
secularization of liturgical practices that began, in the author's view, with the Second Vatican Council in 1962.
And while targeting the demise of services, Day remains optimistic, offering several key solutions to revitalize and
nurture the latent vitality that remains among the parishioners of the American Catholic Church.

Why We Venerate the Saints


Patricia A. Sullivan

Summary
Although many older Catholics are familiar with the cult of the saints, veneration of saints is for many younger
Catholics a lost tradition. Yet this remarkably clear, deeply researched book offers a path through biblical,
historical, and systematic aspects of the communion of saints in which those canonized play special roles. This
study follows Vatican II's view of the saints as companions, models, and intercessors-that the saints guide us
through both the inspiration of their holy lives and their roles in the afterlife. With a comprehensive introduction
to the Catholic Church's history of venerating saints, each subsequent study emphasizes the rediscovery of the
meaning of veneration and is designed for both academic instruction and personal use. Each chapter also
includes a list of important terms and suggestions for additional reading.

Women of Opus Dei


In Their Own Words
M. T. Oates, Linda Ruf, Jenny Driver

Summary
A doctor, a professor, a dancer, a stay-at-home mom, and a marketing executive are some of the inspiring
women portrayed in this collection that describes the women of Opus Dei, a Roman Catholic organization
composed of clergy and lay members dedicated to fostering Christian principles at all levels of society. Each
essay, interview, and profile in this compilation explores facets of Opus Dei that are unfamiliar to many. The
DaVinci Code and other popular entertainments have whetted the interest in this controversial organization, and
promulgated many assumptions that members of the organization contest. The women portrayed in this
collection encompass an inspiring-and, for some, surprising-segment of a Catholic institution that encourages
women around the globe to develop their skills and talents to the fullest and to be engaged in the world. Single,
celibate women and those raising families describe their first encounters with Opus Dei, what made them decide

Written That You May Believe


Encountering Jesus in the Fourth Gospel
Sandra S. Schneiders

Summary

of John. Scholars have hailed its publication and dedicated a session at the American Academy of Religion to
discuss its message. Lay readers have welcomed it as a companion in opening up the meaning of the Fourth
Gospel, and small groups have begun using it as a guide in their devotional reading. This revised edition, enriched
with new chapters from Sandra Schneiders and a study guide prepared by John C. Wronski offers new ways to
nourish faith through the rich symbolism of the Gospel of John and an invitation to "dwell in" the liberating truth
of Jesus.

Your Life Is Worth Living


The Christian Philosophy of Life
Fulton J. Sheen, Esther B. Davidowitz

Summary
Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen was one of the leading religious figures of the 20th century and the chief spokesman
of American Catholicism. Previously unpublished, this work reflects his 16 years of service as national director of
the Society for the Propagation of the Faith and 26 years on radio and television. It is the only work where he
describes his Christian philosophy. Sheen created this compendium in 1965 in the privacy of his New York City
residence at the conclusion of the Second Vatican Council. The series ran over 21 hours on 25 vinyl records. It
is his response to millions of letters he received from people around the world writing him in search of truth,
salvation, and spiritual guidance and was also conceived to explain his mission to evangelize the world. This book
provides Sheen's answers to life's most profound questions and presents the Christian philosophy of life. Released
solely on audiocassette for 20 years, it is now available for the first time in print.

The Zen Teachings of Jesus


Kenneth S. Leong

Summary
"I left Jesus to search for the Tao when I was sixteen," writes Kenneth Leong. "Now I am forty and realize that I
could have found the Tao in Jesus." This is an intriguing book that reveals how Zen philosophy parallels the core
message of the gospel.
It is the spiritual side of Zen, the art to trust and accept life that coincides with the core of the Gospel
message. For power, dogma and doctrine were not Jesus' passion, but the mystery of life and the possibility of
love. Sometimes people have overlooked the joy, the humor and the depth of Jesus' teachings-often because
they could not surmount the narrow confines of openness to the scripture's power to transform our lives.
