My Life with the Saints
by James Martin, S.J.
James Martin has led a thoroughly modern life: from a lukewarm childhood Catholicism, to the Wharton School of Business, to the executive fast track at General Electric, to the Jesuits, to a media career in Manhattan. But at every step along the way he has been accompanied by special friends—the saints of the Catholic Church. These holy men and women are not just historical figures to him. Martin’s attachment to them is real and personal. The saints have guided him. He convincingly shows how the saints can be our friends too.

Martin’s saintly friends come from the whole of Christian history—from St. Paul to John XXIII—and they include Thérèse of Lisieux, Joan of Arc, Ignatius Loyola and other beloved figures. They accompany the author on a pilgrimage that includes stops in a sunlit square of a French town, a quiet retreat house on a New England beach, the housing projects in inner-city Chicago, the sprawling slums of Nairobi, and a gorgeous Baroque church in Rome. As James Martin’s inspiring, witty, and surprising account unfolds, we see how saints can help us to find our way in the world.

The Great Divorce
by C. S. Lewis
C. S. Lewis takes us on a profound journey through both heaven and hell in this engaging allegorical tale. Using his extraordinary descriptive powers, Lewis introduces us to supernatural beings who will change the way we think about good and evil.

In The Great Divorce C. S. Lewis again employs his formidable talent for fable and allegory. The writer, in a dream, finds himself in a bus which travels between Hell and Heaven. This is the starting point for an extraordinary meditation upon good and evil which takes issue with William Blake's The Marriage of Heaven and Hell. In Lewis’s own words, "If we insist on keeping Hell (or even earth) we shall not see Heaven: if we accept Heaven then we shall not be able to retain even the smallest and most intimate souvenirs of Hell."

Sacrament of Charity (Sacramentum Caritatis)
by Pope Benedict XVI
The l
ong awaited post-synodal exhortation on the Eucharist from Pope Benedict XVI!
Pope Benedict teaches that the Eucharist finds its source within the wellspring of love that is the Trinity, the love that is so abundantly expressed in Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross and in the new life of the Holy Spirit that flows into the hearts of those who participate in his sacrifice and receive him in Communion. The Holy Father also shows how the Eucharist is the source and summit of the Church’s life in its relation to the other sacraments, especially the sacrament of Holy Orders and the sacrament of Matrimony.
--Bishop William S. Skylstad, President, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops

Set alongside Pope Benedict XVI's first encyclical God Is Love (Deus Caritas Est) where he stressed the relationship between the Eucharist and love, The Sacrament of Charity picks up that theme and expands it as Pope Benedict explores the mystery of eucharistic faith and how it reveals the mystery of the Trinity. Released on the Feast of the Chair of St. Peter, the Holy Father examines the important relationship between the Eucharist and the other sacraments, including the sacrament of the Church. He also highlights the social implications of the Eucharist and firmly connects it with the Church's social teaching.

Compendium of the Catechism

Two years in the making, the Compendium was prepared by a commission headed by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI. The Pope presented the Compendium at the Vatican in late June. Containing 598 questions and brief answers, it makes the essential contents of the faith accessible to the broadest possible audience.

The Pope said he hoped the compendium would give Catholics and non-Catholics easy access to the basic and essential tenets of the Catholic faith.

The new compendium, he said, is “an authoritative, certain and complete text regarding the essential aspects of the faith of the Church” and it is “in harmony with the catechism approved by the Pope and destined for the whole church.”

Hopefully the Compendium will “reopen an ideal dialogue between the teacher and the disciple, through an urgent series of questions, which involve the reader, encouraging him to continue in the discovery of ever new aspects of the truth of the faith,” Pope Benedict said.

The Holy Father expressed the hope that abbreviating the text and reducing it to the essential “might favor the assimilation and possible memorization of the contents.”

The Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church originated in 2002 when the Congregation for the Clergy and the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith held an International Catechetical Congress to mark the tenth anniversary of the release of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. During the congress, a suggestion was made that a more concise version of the Catechism would be helpful for use with youth and young adults. Blessed John Paul II accepted the suggestion and appointed the special commission headed by Cardinal Ratzinger. In 2004 a draft text was sent to Presidents of Episcopal Conferences for consultation.

Seen as a companion to the widely-used Catechism of the Catholic Church, the Compendium is structured in four parts like the Catechism. While the text does contain some direct quotes from the Catechism used in a sidebar fashion, the questions and answers themselves are original text.

A Jesuit Off-Broadway
Center Stage with Jesus, Judas, and Life's Big Questions
by James Martin, S.J.
Called to the priesthood by God, Fr. James Martin was startled to get a very different kind of call one evening in 2005: a phone call from actor Sam Rockwell. Rockwell had been cast in the part of Judas Iscariot in an Off-Broadway play where Judas was on trial for his crime of betraying Jesus; would Martin be willing to offer some theological insights? Martin gladly obliged, and within weeks playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis and other members of the cast began to dialogue with Martin about a host of spiritual issues that weighed on their minds: Can we believe the Bible? What was Jesus’ mission? What is sin? Does hell exist? Is anyone beyond God’s forgiveness?

A Jesuit Off-Broadway recounts Fr. Martin’s thrilling six months with the LAByrinth Theater Company, as it created and performed The Last Days of Judas Iscariot, which had a sold-out five-week run in New York. As the occasionally profane and worldly playwright, director, and actors struggled to understand theological issues and ideas, they strove to convey them in an artistically convincing way to a largely secular audience. Through it all, Martin learned lessons about theater and life, about how the sacred and the secular aren’t always that far apart, and how questions often tell us more than answers do.

Celebration of Discipline
The Faith of Spiritual Growth
by Richard J. Foster
In the twenty years since its publication, Celebration of Discipline has helped over a million seekers discover a richer spiritual life infused with joy, peace, and a deeper understanding of God. For this special twentieth anniversary edition, Richard J. Foster has added an introduction, in which he shares the story of how this beloved and enduring spiritual guidebook came to be.

Hailed by many as the best modern book on Christian spirituality, Celebration of Discipline explores the classic "Disciplines," or central spiritual practices, of the Christian faith. Along the way, Foster shows that it is only by and through these practices that the true path to spiritual growth can be found.

Dividing the Disciplines into three movements of the Spirit, Foster shows how each of these areas contribute to a balanced spiritual life. The inward Disciplines of meditation, prayer, fasting, and study offer avenues of personal examination and change. The outward Disciplines of simplicity, solitude, submission, and service help prepare us to make the world a better place. The corporate Disciplines of confession, worship, guidance, and celebration bring us nearer to one another and to God.

Foster provides a wealth of examples demonstrating how these Disciplines can become part of our daily activities---and how they can help us shed our superficial habits and "bring the abundance of God into our lives." He offers crucial new insights, demonstrating how the biblical view of simplicity, properly understood and applied, brings joy and balance to our inward and outward lives and "sets us free to enjoy the provision of God as a gift that can be shared with others." Celebration, often the most neglected of the Disciplines, is revealed as critically important, for it stands at the heart of the way to Christ. Celebration of Discipline will help motivate Christians everywhere to embark on a journey of prayer and spiritual growth.

The Dream Manager
by Matthew Kelly
A business parable about how companies can achieve remarkable results by helping their employees fulfill their dreams

Managing people is difficult. With disengagement and turnover on the rise, many managers are scratching their heads wondering what to do. It's not that we don't dream of being great managers, it's just that we haven't found a practical and efficient way to do it. Until now.

The fictional company in this remarkable book is grappling with real problems of high turnover and low morale -- so the managers begin to investigate what really drives the employees. What they discover is that the key to motivation isn't necessarily the promise of a bigger paycheck or title, but rather the fulfillment of crucial personal dreams. They also learned that people at every level need to be offered specific kinds of help and encouragement -- or our dreams will forever remain just dreams as we grow dissatisfied with our lives and jobs.

Beginning with his important thought that a company can only become the-best-version-of-itself to the extent that its employees are becoming better-versions-of-themselves, Matthew Kelly explores the connection between the dreams we are chasing personally and the way we all engage at work. Tackling head-on the growing problem of employee disengagement, Kelly explores the dynamic collaboration that is unleashed when people work together to achieve company objectives and personal dreams.

The power of The Dream Manager is that simply becoming aware of the concept will change the way you manage and relate to people instantly and forever. What's your dream?

The Holy Longing
“Anyone searching for the substance and balance in the Christian spiritual life will welcome the wisdom in Ronald Rolheiser’ words.  His writing is at once learned and clear, not only warming the heart, but also giving light to the mind and guidance to feet stumbling amidst the complexities and ambiguities of our age.  He steers clear of the fluffiness and fuzziness clouding today’s spirituality superhighway, homing in on the essential elements of Christian spirituality both sober and sane.” Michael Downey, Professor of Systematic Theology and Spirituality, St. John’s Seminary/Archdiocese of Los Angeles

Hebrews
by Alan C. Mitchell

Scarcely any book of the New Testament (with the possible exception of Revelation) is so perplexing as the “Letter to the Hebrews.” Not really a letter, but a sermon with some features of a letter added to it, not really by its putative author, Paul, but by an anonymous Christian who wrote some of the most elegant Greek in the Bible, not really addressed to the “Hebrews,” but to Christians, probably in Rome—this is the work that Alan Mitchell explains in this commentary.

Many scholars have written fine commentaries on Hebrews, and Mitchell stands on their shoulders, noting where he proposes alternate interpretations. Mitchell pays particular attention to the reliance of the author of Hebrews on the Greek Old Testament (the Septuagint). He also compares the language of Hebrews with similar usage and ideas of first-century Hellenistic Jewish authors, notably Flavius Josephus and Philo of Alexandria. Furthermore, he situates Hebrews against the background of the tradition of Hellenistic Moral Philosophy, where that is appropriate. Mitchell thus locates Hebrews in its proper thought-world, something that is essential for the modern reader in dealing with some of the thornier questions raised by this biblical book. Chief among these are the role of sacrificial atonement, the question of “second repentance,” and the spiritual and moral formation of the Roman Christians who were its recipients.

Like all the volumes in the Sacra Pagina series, this work examines the text in detail, with careful attention to the words and phrasing, and then brings those individual insights together into a coherent summary. The bibliography and special lists appended to each chapter cover the best of recent scholarship on the Letter to the Hebrews. Hardcover (Item #*LI-9780814658154) $39.95

   

Religious Literacy: What Every American Needs to Know--And Doesn't

Religious Literacy: What Every American Needs to Know--And Doesn't
by Stephen Prothero
*Starred Review* The author of I^ American Jesus (2003) opens this important book with a paradox. To wit, Americans are deeply religious I^ and profoundly ignorant about religion; that is, one of the most religious countries is also a nation of "religious illiterates." Prothero calls religious illiteracy dangerous because religion is one of the greatest forces for good--as well as evil--in the world. Nowadays, standing on shaky religious ground can be literally a matter of life and death. To cite two brief examples of America's religious illiteracy: only half of American adults can name one of the four Gospels, and 10 percent of Americans believe that Joan of Arc was Noah's wife. Prothero defines religious literacy--what it is, and what it is not. He also discusses the two great religious revivals in U.S. history, the Second Great Awakening of the nineteenth century and the postwar revival of the 1940s and 1950s. He argues both the constitutionality and the necessity of teaching--with an emphasis on spreading knowledge, not inculcating values--about religion in public schools and higher education. He suggests that every U.S. public high school should require a course on the Bible and another on the religions of the world. And he devotes an entire chapter to "a modest list" of a hundred or so religious terms that he deems essential, from I^ Abraham to I^ Zionism, to any American's religious knowledge.

  Amazing Grace: William Wilberforce and the Heroic Campaign to End Slavery

Amazing Grace: William Wilberforce and the Heroic Campaign to End Slavery
by Eric Metaxas
Amazing Grace tells the story of the remarkable life of the British abolitionist William Wilberforce (1759-1833). This accessible biography chronicles Wilberforce's extraordinary role as a human rights activist, cultural reformer, and member of Parliament.

At the center of this heroic life was a passionate twenty-year fight to abolish the British slave trade, a battle Wilberforce won in 1807, as well as efforts to abolish slavery itself in the British colonies, a victory achieved just three days before his death in 1833.

Metaxas discovers in this unsung hero a man of whom it can truly be said: he changed the world. Before Wilberforce, few thought slavery was wrong. After Wilberforce, most societies in the world came to see it as a great moral wrong.

To mark the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the British slave trade, HarperSanFrancisco and Bristol Bay Productions have joined together to commemorate the life of William Wilberforce with the feature-length film Amazing Grace and this companion biography, which provides a fuller account of the amazing life of this great man than can be captured on film.

This account of Wilberforce's life will help many become acquainted with an exceptional man who was a hero to Abraham Lincoln and an inspiration to the anti-slavery movement in America.  Hardcover (Item #*HP-9780061173004) $21.95

   

The Seven Levels of Intimacy: The Art of Loving and the Joy of Being Loved
by Matthew Kelly
A throwaway buzzword in pop psychology, intimacy remains a litmus test for the health of relationships and is something everyone should strive for, says Kelly, the bestselling author of The Rhythm of Life. "Intimacy is the one thing a person cannot live happily without," he writes. Since many people cling to the "pubescent notion" that intimacy and sex are synonymous, Kelly begins by talking about what intimacy is not-sex, common interests-and proffering up inspirational tidbits and oft heard motivational questions ("Who energizes you?" "Why do they energize you?" "How do you want to be remembered?") before hammering home the thesis of this book: intimacy is a "legitimate need." His seven levels of intimacy-clichés; facts; opinions; hopes and dreams; feelings; faults, fears and failures; and legitimate needs-each get a chapter-length discussion. Kelly advocates openness-in communication, enduring pain, delaying gratification-and sprinkles in bits of spirituality in cajoling readers to foster intimacy, and, in turn, love and the meaning of life. "Life is about love. It's about whom you love and whom you hurt. Life's about how you love and hurt the people close to you." His view may seem simplistic, but Kelly's simple, direct prose and patient explanations will appeal to spiritual readers.

The Book of Saints & Heroes
The first Christians to visit Europe and the British Isles met pagans who told tales of fairies, talking beasts, and other wonderful things. To these marvelous stories, they soon added new ones about the Christian saints. Some were true, others improbable, and many simply fantastic. In the ones we include here, you’ll meet the saint who spent seven Easters on a whale’s back and the amiable lion who was St. Jerome’s friend. You’ll see St. George fight the dragon, and you’ll read about the fierce wolf St. Francis of Assisi converted.

But many of these stories have in them scarcely a wave of the fairy wand. So you’ll also find here true tales of great saints such as St. Louis of France, St. Vincent de Paul, St. Francis Xavier, and St. Elizabeth of Hungary — souls marked by courage, kindness, and piety.

These marvelous legends and exciting true stories of Christian saints and heroes will provide many hours of delightful reading to believers and non-believers alike! 336 pages (Item #97816) $24.95

    With activities on the left-hand pages and Mass prayers on the right, parents can easily help children find their place with little interruption of their own prayer experience. Once complete, the book becomes a personal keepsake to use week after week.

    Compendio Catecismo de la Iglesia Católica
    El hambre de fe de los católicos sigue creciendo. El papa Benedicto XVI da a la Iglesia el "alimento" que busca en las 598 preguntas y respuestas contenidas en el Compendio del Catecismo de la Iglesia Católica. Este volumen, de 200 páginas, ofrece una rápida sinopsis del contenido esencial de la fe tal como está promulgado en el Catecismo de la Iglesia Católica. Como el Catecismo de 1992, el Compendio tiene una estructura de cuatro partes, e incluye una sección sobre oraciones comunes y fórmulas doctrinales católicas. Gracias al formato de preguntas y respuestas, los líderes catequéticos -padres, párrocos, maestros, directores y catequistas- tienen la oportunidad singular de dialogar con los fieles, y revigorizar la misión permanente de la Iglesia de evangelizar y catequizar. Los individuos pueden llegar a "conocer las insondables riquezas del misterio salvífico de Jesucristo", leyendo, usando y memorizando partes del Compendio del Catecismo. Una herramienta esencial para jóvenes y adultos jóvenes, el Compendio es el acompañante perfecto de la Biblia, lectura espiritual o libro de texto de un joven o adulto joven. Los líderes catequéticos de las escuelas secundarias, universidades y parroquias apreciarán su versatilidad, como libro de referencia, promotor del debate o recurso central para programas RICA.

    Catorce imágenes tomadas de obras maestras del arte cristiano marcan el tono en cada parte o sección. "Las imágenes sagradas, con su belleza, son también una proclamación del Evangelio y expresan el esplendor de la verdad católica", explicó el papa Benedicto XVI.

    El Compendio del Catecismo fue preparado por una comisión presidida por el entonces cardenal Joseph Ratzinger. Respondiendo al anhelo de una mejor apreciación del Catecismo, y a fin de satisfacer una generalizada necesidad que surgió durante el Congreso Catequético Internacional del 2002, en el 2003 el Santo Padre estableció una comisión especial, presidida por el prefecto de la Congregación para la Doctrina de la Fe, a la que encargó preparar un Compendio del Catecismo de la Iglesia Católica, con una versión más concisa y dialogal del mismo contenido de la fe y moral católica.
