In the Voting Booth: A Catholic's Guide
In the Voting Booth: A Catholic Guide walks you through the important responsibility of voting in light of one's Catholic conscience.

This pamphlet answers the questions most on people's minds:

* Does the Church tell me who I should vote for?
* what are the key principles that should be guiding me as I enter the voting booth?
* How does my Catholic Faith help me to make these choices?
* What about the separation of Church and State?
* If no single party or candidate in a given election conforms to our important Catholic principles, what am I to do?

Voting with a Catholic conscience is hard work.

No Salvation Outside the Poor
Prophetic-Utopian Essays

by Jon Sobrino
"I have come to proclaim good news to the poor" Luke 4:18
The provocative title of these essays plays on a traditional Catholic slogan: 'No salvation outside the church'. But as Fr. Sobrino notes, salvation has many dimensions, both personal and social, historical and transcendent. Insofar as it implies God's response to a world marked by suffering and injustice, then the poor represent an indispensable test, a key to the healing of a sick society. Drawing on the radical hope of Christian faith the promise of the Kingdom of God and the resurrection of the death. Sobrino presents a bold counter-cultural challenge to a 'civilization of wealth' that lives off the blood of the poor. Inspired by the witness of Oscar Romero and Ignacio Ellacura, and the church's preferential option for the poor, Sobrino offers these 'prophetic-utopian' reflections on faith and the meaning of discipleship in our time.

Jon Sobrino, a Spanish-born Jesuit theologian, has spent the past 50 years in El Salvador. He is the author of many works, including the award-winning 2-volume Christology, Jesus the Liberator and Christ the Liberator, as well as Where is God? Earthquake, Terrorism, Barbarity, and Hope, and Witnesses to the Kingdom: The Martyrs of El Salvador and the Crucified Peoples.

Love That Produces Hope
The Thought of Ignacio Ellacuría
by Kevin F. Burke, S.J., and Robert Lassalle-Klein, Editors

Father Ignacio Ellacuría, S.J., president of the University of Central America, leading Latin American philosopher, and liberation theologian, was assassinated with five Jesuit companions and two women on November 16, 1989. Love That Produces Hope brings together leading authorities on key aspects of Ellacuría’s thought. The book introduces readers to the groundbreaking life and thought of Ignacio Ellacuría. His biography and writings embody late twentieth-century transformations and tensions that reshaped the life of the Catholic church among the “crucified peoples” of Central America.

Love That Produces Hope evaluates the significance of Ellacuría’s work, particularly his impact on theology, philosophy, and education. Ellacuría found hope in his faith that God’s grace sustains the tenacious struggle of millions of men, women, and children to nurture those they love in the face of poverty and an uncertain future.

Left to Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust
by Immaculee Ilibagiza
In the spring of 1994, more than one million people were murdered in the Rwandan genocide. This is the story of how Immaculee survived certain death, along with seven other women, by hiding in a very small bathroom for more than 3 months. Day after day, for months, the killers would search nearby – gleefully chanting “kill them big, kill them small, kill them, kill them, kill them all!”
With uncommon sincerity, Immaculee shares with us her soul's struggle through disbelief to anger and rage and, ultimately, forgiveness. She is living proof of the power of prayer and positive thinking.
Her story will touch you deeply. You will feel her fear, you will cry, and you will ask yourself the same questions that we as a people have been asking forever: How could this happen? Where does such animosity come from? Why can't we just be like God, Who is the Source for all of us? But you will also feel something else most profoundly: You will feel hope, a hope that inch by inch, we as a people are moving toward a new alignment—that is, we're moving toward living God-realized lives.

  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

SCIENCE AND EVIDENCE FOR DESIGN IN THE UNIVERSE
by Michael Behe, William Dembski, Stephen Meyer
As progress in science continues to reveal unimagined complexities, three scientists revisit the difficult and compelling question of the origin of our universe. As mathematician, biochemist, and philosopher of science, they explore the possibility of developing a reliable method for detecting an intelligent cause and evidence for design at the origin of life. In the process, they present a strong case for opening and pursuing a fruitful exchange between science and theology. Mathematician William Dembski, author of The Design Inference, first argues that new developments in the information sciences make intelligent design objectively and scientifically detectable—he identifies the signs of design. Next, philosopher of science, Stephen Meyer, and biochemist Michael Behe, author of Darwin’s Black Box, argue that these signs are now clearly evident in both the architecture of the universe and the features of living systems. Other essays by the authors defend the scientific status of the theory of intelligent design and show how that theory supports traditional religious belief without necessarily “proving” the existence of God. In a concluding essay, Michael Behe responds to critics of his best selling book, Darwin’s Black Box, thus bringing readers up-to-date on the status of the contemporary design argument in biology.
