A FOREIGN & WICKED INSTITUTION? THE CAMPAIGN AGAINST CONVENTS IN VICTORIAN ENGLAND

A FOREIGN & WICKED INSTITUTION? THE CAMPAIGN AGAINST CONVENTS IN VICTORIAN ENGLAND
$35.00
This work explores the prejudice that existed against women in Victorian England who joined sisterhoods and worked in orphanages and in education and were committed to social work among the urban poor. The accomplishments of the nineteenth-century nuns and the opposition they overcame should serve as both an example and encouragement to all men and women committed to the Gospel.

ABBOT AELRED CARLYLE, CALDEY ISLAND, AND THE ANGLO-CATH. REVIVAL IN ENGLAND

ABBOT AELRED CARLYLE, CALDEY ISLAND, AND THE ANGLO-CATH. REVIVAL IN ENGLAND
$59.95
Drawing from a wealth of private papers, church records, and newspapers, this book documents the religious career of Abbot Aelred Carlyle (1874-1955). From his early popularity and the establishment of an Anglican Benedictine monastery on Caldey Island, South Wales, to his conversion to Roman Catholicism, Carlyle's life presents a forum of debate for numerous topics of Edwardian religion: the Anglo-Catholic movement, ritualism, lawless clergy, the power or lack of authority of the Anglican bishops, the influence of the religious press, the Anglican Church versus the Roman Church, and the issue of religious conversion. This study also questions the role Benedictine monasticism plays, if any, in the reunion of the Anglican and Roman Churches.

ART NOURISHES LIFE: SELECTED WORKS FROM THE SAINT VINCENT ART & HERITAGE COLLECTIONS

ART NOURISHES LIFE: SELECTED WORKS FROM THE SAINT VINCENT ART & HERITAGE COLLECTIONS
$25.00

When the founder of Saint Vincent, Boniface Wimmer, OSB, arrived in Latrobe, Pennsylvania in 1846, he quickly set out to establish a monastery and school that would be immersed in the arts. Envisioning the arts as having the same status and support as science and religion, Wimmer immediately began to assemble artists, teach students, and collect art. Over the past 170 years Saint Vincent has been inspired by its founder's vision - continuing to collect art that edifies spaces on campus, provokes discussion, and engages diverse modes of thought and inquiry. "Art Nourishes Life: Selected Works from the Saint Vincent Art & Heritage Collections" traces a unique history of collecting back to the mid-19th century when artwork began arriving at the nascent community through the auspices of King Ludwig I of Bavaria. At the time of this publication, Saint Vincent counts some 4,000 works of art in its holdings ranging from ancient to contemporary in nearly all media. This full-color volume features over fifty works culled from Saint Vincent's impressive holdings. These works stand not only as a testament to Abbot Boniface and King Ludwig, but to the myriad of artists, educators, and benefactors whose determined efforts collectively acknowledge the power of art to transform its viewers and environment.

CHERISH CHRIST ABOVE ALL: THE BIBLE IN THE RULE OF BENEDICT

CHERISH CHRIST ABOVE ALL: THE BIBLE IN THE RULE OF BENEDICT
$12.95
The Rule of Benedict, one of the most influential documents in Western civilization, has its roots planted deeply in the scriptures. As a result, the forms of monastic life and the spirituality it engendered among lay men and women grew out of a loving reading of the Bible. In this book Benedictine scholar Demetrius Dumm traces those roots and shows how the Judeo-Christian scriptures shine through the monastic way of life, its attitudes and forms of praying. He points out that the hospitality often associated with the Benedictines begins with the entertainment of God's presence by quiet, trusting prayer, and he shows that the practice of Christian discipline is intended more for exposing and eliminating illusions than imposing order. Readers of all backgrounds who honor the wealth of the Christian heritage will welcome this wise and stirring book.

CIVIL RIGHTS & THE PARADOX OF LIBERAL DEMOCRACY

CIVIL RIGHTS & THE PARADOX OF LIBERAL DEMOCRACY
$68.00
In Civil Rights and the Paradox of Liberal Democracy, Bradley Watson demonstrates the paradox of liberal democracy: that its cornerstone principles of equality and freedom are principles inherently directed toward undermining it. Modernity, beyond bringing definition to political equality, unleashed a whirlwind of individualism, which feeds the soul's basic impulse to rule without limitation<\#209>including the limitation of consent. Here Watson begins his analysis of the foundations of liberalism, looking carefully and critically at the moral and political philosophies that justify modern civil rights litigation. He goes on to examine the judicial manifestations of the paradox of liberal democracy, seeking to bring a broad philosophical coherence to legal decision making in the United States and Canada. Finally, Watson illuminates the extent to which this decision making is in tension with liberal democracy, and outlines proposals for reform.

CONSTITUTIONAL DEMOCRACY & JUDICIAL SUPREMACY: JOHN RAWLS & THE TRANSFORMATION OF AMERICAN POLITICS

CONSTITUTIONAL DEMOCRACY & JUDICIAL SUPREMACY: JOHN RAWLS & THE TRANSFORMATION OF AMERICAN POLITICS
$109.99
"The best books on politics offer us fresh insight into the way things are, and powerful arguments about how things ought to be. Jerome Foss's superb book accomplishes both of these ends, rescuing John Rawls's work from the dusty corners of overly abstract theorizing by emphasizing Rawls's dedication to a very practical reinvention of the American political experiment. This approach has the virtue not only of according with Rawls's mature interpretation of his work, but also of setting up a lively contrast between the constitutional republicanism of the framers and Rawls's constitutional democracy. This book is a trustworthy guide to the American constitutional tradition as well as Rawls's innovative alternative, offering a respectful treatment of the latter while providing an engaging and persuasive defense of the former." -Micah J. Watson, William Spoelhof Teacher-Scholar Chair in Political Science, Calvin College
"Foss's careful study of the transformative intention of Rawls's political theory brings extraordinary insights to our academic debates, and to the real causes of our polarized, dysfunctional politics. The analysis of Rawls's pragmatism reveals its breathtaking goal to elevate progressive-liberal judges as epitomes of public reason, seeking to construct a rationalist, egalitarian-minded democracy to replace the framers' complex republicanism. Rawls has partially succeeded; we increasingly are ruled by living judicialism rather than the rule of law, under novel power wielded by federal courts, law professors, and lawyers. Foss gives Rawls a fair hearing, but insists we confront the arbitrary and utopian bases of this radical project, and the costs of elevating equality and constructed theory at the expense of liberty, self-government, and natural rights. Those who care about the fate of constitutional self-government, and whether utopian theories produce sustainable polities or political-social disorder, must confront this book." -Paul Carrese, Professor of Political Science, U.S. Air Force Academy

FLANNERY O'CONNOR & THE PERILS OF GOVERNING BY TENDERNESS (P)

FLANNERY O'CONNOR & THE PERILS OF GOVERNING BY TENDERNESS (P)
$39.99
Flannery O'Connor's fiction continues to haunt American readers, in part because of its uncanny ability to remind us who we are and what we need. Foss's book reveals the extent to which O'Connor was a serious reader of the history of political philosophy. She understood the ideas upon which the American regime rests, and she evaluated those ideas from the standpoint of both faith and reason. Foss's book explains why O'Connor feared that the modern habit to govern by tenderness would lead to terror. After a thorough account of her familiarity with the history of political philosophy, Foss shows how the works of Plato, Aristotle, Saint Augustine, Saint Thomas Aquinas, Machiavelli, Locke, Rousseau, and Nietzsche inform O'Connor's stories. This does not mean that O'Connor was writing about politics in the narrow sense. Her vision was deeply theological, and she carefully avoided topical stories that promote social agendas. Her concern was with the health of the American regime more broadly, insofar as the manners of a regime affect citizens' attitudes toward religion. O'Connor does not present a political theory of her own, but as Foss argues, she was a political philosopher in the original sense of the word. Her stories give clear accounts of her political wisdom. Foss further shows the continued relevance of her wisdom in age dominated by abstract modern theories, such as that of John Rawls.

MISTER ROGERS & PHILOSOPHY (P)

MISTER ROGERS & PHILOSOPHY (P)
$19.95
Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, which began as The Children's Corner in 1953 and terminated in 2001, left its mark on America.

The show's message of kindness, simplicity, and individual uniqueness made Rogers a beloved personality, while also provoking some criticism because, by arguing that everyone was special without having to do anything to earn it, the show supposedly created an entitled generation.

In Mister Rogers and Philosophy, thirty philosophers give their very different takes on the Neighborhood phenomenon.

● Rogers's way of communicating with children has a Socratic dimension, and is compared with other attempts to cultivate philosophy in children.

● Wonder is the origin of philosophy and science, and Mister Rogers always looked for wonder.

● Did Mister Rogers unwittingly create the Millennials by his message that everyone is special?

● What Martin Buber's I-Thou philosophy can tell us about Fred Rogers's attempt to rehabilitate children's television.

● X the Owl obsesses, Daniel Tiger regresses, Lady Elaine displaces anger, King Friday controls--how puppets can be used to teach us about feelings.

● Fred Rogers's indirect communication is key to the show, and most evident in the land of make-believe, where he doesn't make himself known.

● How Mister Rogers helps us see that the ordinary world is extraordinary, if we're willing to open ourselves up to it.

● How does Mister Rogers's method of teaching compare with Maria Montessori's?

● Fred Rogers and Carl Rogers have a lot in common: The Neighborhood is observed in the light of Rogerian therapy.

● Mister Rogers's view of evil is closer to Rousseau than to Voltaire.

● Fred Rogers gave a non-philosophical interpretation of the philosophical approach known as personalism.

● Daoism helps us understand how Fred Rogers, the antithesis of a stereotypical male, could achieve such success as a TV star.

● In the show and in his life, we can see how Rogers lived "the ethics of care."

● Puppets help children understand that persons are not isolated, but interconnected.

● Mister Rogers showed us that talking and singing about our feelings makes them more manageable.

PARLIAMENTARY POLITICS OF A COUNT AND ITS TOWN

PARLIAMENTARY POLITICS OF A COUNT AND ITS TOWN
$64.95

Based on archival sources, this study considers political activities in Suffolk's two main constituencies over the course of the 18th century. Mining the records of an unusually rich provincial press, Sommers addresses many key questions of Hanoverian political historiography: the press, popular political expressions, women in politics, deference, and elite behavior. She focuses primarily on the second half of the century, a time marked by an increasingly sophisticated electorate that left considerable documentary evidence, to determine how politics actually developed in East Anglia, as recorded in public and private documents.

In addition to a description of the variety and nature of Suffolk politics, the work elaborates upon a number of important collateral themes. These include the appearance of intense political awareness and enthusiastic participation in popular activities among those not possessing the vote, coupled with a political use of the press that grows dramatically in scope over the course of the century. Other sections detail the sustained development of the independence of the electorate and the connection between religious affiliation and partisan identification locally, as well as that between local and national parties.

PSALMS: HEARTBEAT OF LIFE & WORSHIP (P)
$11.00
New/Used: New
This book points believers to this ageless prayer book of life. Examining the major themes of the Psalms, the author tries to rescue the impassioned cry of the psalmist from superficial piety and disuse. Brother Benedict Janecko, O.S.B., shows that one finds the heart of religious experience in ordinary living, whether we are "on a high," "in the pits,' or somewhere in between. The reader of this small book will recognize his or her own struggle to trust, to forgive, to repent, to wonder, to endure, to cope, to find meaning, to get along, to express oneself -- and in doing so, will know the truest religious experience: God living and reigning within one's own life.

2021 Association of Catholic Publishers first place award in theology

2021 Catholic Media Association Award first place award in marriage and family living

Six years into the papacy of Pope Francis, Catholics are still figuring out how to respond to his image of the church as a field hospital --a church that goes into the streets rather than remaining locked up behind closed doors. Marriage and family are primary sites of the field hospital, called to meet people's need for healing and accompaniment with compassion and love. The authors of this collection --all lay, a mix of single and married, traditional and progressive Catholics --take up this work. They offer practical wisdom from and critical engagement with the Catholic tradition but avoid rehashing decades-old theological debates. Instead, their essays engage with and respond to realities shaping contemporary family life, like religious pluralism, technology, migration, racism, sex and gender, incarceration, consumerism, and the call to holiness. The result is a collection that envisions ways that families can be places of healing and love in and for the world.

    SIBLYS OF LONDON

    SIBLYS OF LONDON
    $99.00
    Ebenezer Sibly was a quack doctor, plagiarist, and masonic ritualist in late eighteenth-century London; his brother Manoah was a respectable accountant and a pastor who ministered to his congregation without pay for fifty years. The inventor of Dr. Sibly's Reanimating Solar Tincture, which
    claimed to restore the newly dead to life, Ebenezer himself died before he turned fifty and stayed that way despite being surrounded by bottles of the stuff. Asked to execute his will, which urged the continued manufacture of Solar Tincture, and left legacies for multiple and concurrent wives as
    well as an illegitimate son whose name the deceased could not recall, Manoah found his brother's record of financial and moral indiscretions so upsetting that he immediately resigned his executorship.

    Ebenezer's death brought a premature conclusion to a colorfully chaotic life, lived on the fringes of various interwoven esoteric subcultures. Drawing on such sources as ratebooks and pollbooks, personal letters and published sermons, burial registers and horoscopes, Susan Mitchell Sommers has woven
    together an engaging microhistory that offers useful revisions to scholarly accounts of Ebenezer and Manoah, while placing the entire Sibly family firmly in the esoteric byways of the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. The Siblys of London provides fascinating insight into the lives of a
    family who lived just outside our usual historical range of vision.

    SO WE DO NOT LOSE HEART: BIBLICAL WISDOM FOR ALL OUR DAYS
    $12.95
    This book contains 83 short reflections on passages of scripture which address, from various perspectives, the perennial human problem of mortality. A prominent theme in these reflections is, therefore, an invitation to trust the goodness of God in situations where we experience loss of control and the consequent need to rely on a higher power for love and support. These reflections also remind us that reliance on the goodness of God need not be a desperate last resort but can in fact be a joyful discovery that will illuminate the whole landscape of our lives.

    THE GREEN MISTER ROGERS: ENVIRONMENTALISM IN MISTER ROGERS' NEIGHBORHOOD

    THE GREEN MISTER ROGERS: ENVIRONMENTALISM IN MISTER ROGERS' NEIGHBORHOOD
    $25.00
    Fred Rogers was an international celebrity. He was a pioneer in children's television, an advocate for families, and a multimedia artist and performer. He wrote the television scripts and music, performed puppetry, sang, hosted, and directed Mister Rogers' Neighborhood for more than thirty years. In his almost nine hundred episodes, Rogers pursued dramatic topics: divorce, death, war, sibling rivalry, disabilities, racism. Rogers' direct, slow, gentle, and empathic approach is supported by his superior emotional strength, his intellectual and creative courage, and his joyful spiritual confidence.

    The Green Mister Rogers: Environmentalism in "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" centers on the show's environmentalism, primarily expressed through his themed week "Caring for the Environment," produced in 1990 in coordination with the twentieth anniversary of Earth Day. Unfolding against a trash catastrophe in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Rogers advances an environmentalism for children that secures children in their family homes while extending their perspective to faraway places, from the local recycling center to Florida's coral reef. Rogers depicts animal wisdom and uses puppets to voice anxiety and hope and shows an interconnected world where each part of creation is valued, and love is circulated in networks of care. Ultimately, Rogers cultivates a practical wisdom that provides a way for children to confront the environmental crisis through action and hope and, in doing so, develop into adults who possess greater care for the environment and a capacious imagination for solving the ecological problems we face.

    THE IDEA OF THE AMERICAN UNIVERSITY

    THE IDEA OF THE AMERICAN UNIVERSITY
    $60.00
    As John Henry Newman reflected on 'The Idea of a University' more than a century and a half ago, Bradley C. S. Watson brings together some of the nation's most eminent thinkers on higher education to reflect on the nature and purposes of the American university today. They detail the life and rather sad times of the American university, its relationship to democracy, and the place of the liberal arts within it. Their mordant reflections paint a picture of the American university in crisis. But they also point toward a renewal of the university by redirecting it toward those things that resist the passions of the moment, or the pull of mere utility. This book is essential reading for thoughtful citizens, scholars, and educational policymakers.
