BENEDICT BACKWARDS: READING THE RULE IN THE 21ST CENTURY

BENEDICT BACKWARDS: READING THE RULE IN THE 21ST CENTURY
$17.95

In Benedict Backwards, Terrence Kardong builds the case that the Rule of Benedict is best read "backwards," that is, with emphasis on the last chapters, not the first ones. Benedict starts out dependent on the Rule of the Master, but he ends on a much more self-assured note, revealing more about his own thoughts on matters of monastic life. Kardong shows the final chapters of the Rule are primarily about community, and they provide insight into Benedict's vision for his monks.

BILLY GRAHAM: AN ORDINARY MAN & HIS EXTRAORDINARY GOD

product image
$21.99
Lon Allison shares the story of the man and his message of Jesus Christ with a whole new generation.

"My prayer is that this book will be read by a generation that has never heard of Billy Graham....
I also write for those who are broadly attached to the Christian faith, and for those who have had only a small or short brush with faith in their lives. Billy impacted everyone from Catholics and Lutherans to Bible Church Evangelicals and Assembly of God Charismatics. As I hope you will hear clearly in what follows, he touched people like me with very little religious background. He was the 'Pastor to Presidents' and a spiritual guide to celebrities. But more than everything else, he was a friend of Jesus and passionately devoted to telling Jesus's story to everyone he possibly could in all the world."
--Lon Allison, from the introduction

Billy Graham said, "You have no idea how sick I get of the name Billy Graham, and how wonderful and thrilling the name Christ sounds to my ears." So, then, why another book about him?

Lon Allison, an evangelist himself, and popular evangelical pastor in Wheaton, Illinois, has learned much from Billy. Allison retells the highlights of what has been, by any objective account, a fascinating life, and tells it is a way that resonates with the Graham legacy of serving God and seeking to spread the Good News. Every stage of Graham's life is included, even the rough spots, with appreciation and a desire to answer the question: What can we learn from the life and ministry of Billy Graham? What is his legacy? What was his message and how might it still be relevant for today.

Foreword by Dr. Leighton Ford and Jean Graham Ford.

BRUISED & WOUNDED: STRUGGLING TO UNDERSTAND SUICIDE

product image
$10.99

Recent events have shown again how suicide touches all of us -- often when we least expect it. But how to unpack the grief that follows such a painful, and often stigmatized, death? Ron Rolheiser can help.

When someone is stricken with cancer, one of three things can happen: Doctors treat the disease and cure it; professionals can't cure the disease but can control it so that the person suffering can live with the disease for the rest of his or her life; or the cancer can be of a kind that cannot be treated and all the medicine and treatments in the world are powerless - the person dies.

Emotional depression leading to suicide can work the same way. Sometimes a person can be treated so that, in effect, they are cured; sometimes they can't ever really be cured, but can be treated in a way that they can live with the disease for their whole life; and sometimes, just as with certain kinds of cancer, the disease is untreatable, unstoppable, and no intervention by anyone or anything can halt its advance - it eventually kills the person and there is nothing anyone can do. Thus, Ronald Rolheiser begins this small, powerful book.

With chapters also on "Removing the Taboo," "Despair as Weakness Rather than Sin," "Reclaiming the Memory of Our Loved One," and "The Pain of the Ones Left Behind," Fr. Rolheiser offers hope and a new way of understanding death by suicide.

CANTICLE OF THE CREATURES FOR SAINT FRANCIS OF ASSISI

product image
$18.99
Celebrated Italian poet Luigi Santucci and American artist Br. Martin Erspamer lend heart and imagination to the "Canticle of St. Francis," one of the most beloved texts in all the writings of St. Francis. Honoring the spirituality of this holy man who preached and listened to man and beast alike, Santucci takes the sermons that Francis bestowed on the birds, the wolf of Gubbio, and so many other creatures, and allows his wisdom to come back to us through the voices of those creatures, providing us with a new classic of Franciscan spirituality.

In a beautiful gift book format, this title has four-color illustrations throughout that capture the simple, yet joyful spirit of Saint Francis that has inspired generations. The book reminds us of the traits of this beloved Saint that led the current Pope to choose him as a namesake -- a deep concern for nature, justice for the poor, and interior peace.

CATHOLIC COMPANION TO JESUS

product image
$15.95
Over 2 billion people on planet Earth call Jesus Christ their Lord and Savior, so it's only appropriate that Sr. Kathleen Glavich would focus on the Son of God for her next book in the award-winning Catholic Companion Series: The Catholic Companion to Jesus is an in-depth exploration of the life, times, and legacy of Jesus of Nazareth.

Written in language that is easy to grasp for all readers, but comprehensive enough to be an academic resource, The Catholic Companion to Jesus delves into the prophets who preached of Christ's coming, the biblical and historical record of the life of Jesus, his ministry and miracles, his death and resurrection, the legacy he left to all of humanity, his role in modern life, and the second coming of the Messiah.

The Catholic Companion to Jesus is intended to be a catalyst for anyone who wishes to know Jesus better.

CELIBACY-A FULLNESS OF LIFE

CELIBACY-A FULLNESS OF LIFE
$5.95

The author addresses a topic which is not only pertinent to priests or religious, but also, applies to all Christians.  He sees celibacy, next to poverty and obedience, as one of the three steps of acceptance, letting go and admittance in order to attain full human potential.  He shows how great the importance of celibacy was to the early monastics in order to attain this potential.  The author also shows how God in this fulfilled celibacy can fill a person's most profound yearnings.
