BILLY GRAHAM: AN ORDINARY MAN & HIS EXTRAORDINARY GOD

BILLY GRAHAM: AN ORDINARY MAN & HIS EXTRAORDINARY GOD
$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.

BOUNDLESS COMPASSION: CREATING A WAY OF LIFE

BOUNDLESS COMPASSION: CREATING A WAY OF LIFE
$18.95
Named one of the Top 50 Spirituality Books of 2018 by Spirituality & Practice. Winner of a 2019 Catholic Press Association Award: Spirituality/Soft Cover Books (First Place) and a 2019 Association of Catholic Publishers Award: Spirituality Books (Second Place).


"Living compassionately is rarely convenient and often downright challenging," writes Joyce Rupp, bestselling and award-winning author and retreat leader. The definitive Christian guide to compassion, Boundless Compassion is the culmination of Rupp's research and work as codirector of the Servite Center of Compassionate Presence. Through this six-week personal transformation process for developing and deepening compassion, Rupp nudges, encourages, and inspires you to grow in the kind of love that motivated Jesus' life and mission for his disciples.

With master teacher Joyce Rupp, you will learn to develop compassion as never before. You will discover compassion from science, medicine, theology, spirituality, sociology, and psychology. You will be encouraged to explore personal and professional expressions of compassion, and to re-energize your ability to offer loving kindness to those around you.

Rupp has felt the call to walk with others in their suffering since she was a young member of the Servants of Mary, whose charism is compassion. She eventually cofounded the Boundless Compassion program with Sr. Margaret Stratman, O.S.M.

Based on the format and theme of Rupp's bestselling books like Open the Door and her popular workshops conducted by the Center of Compassionate Presence, Boundless Compassion has the power to transform your life, giving you wisdom, confidence, understanding, and inspiration to be a more caring presence. It will help you build on relational skills, learn self-care, gain wisdom for incorporating loss and suffering into your active life, and find ways to show compassion at work.

By the book's end, you will feel prepared to live with a renewed commitment to a compassionate presence for yourself and those who are in the midst of pain, struggle, and transition.

BRUISED & WOUNDED: STRUGGLING TO UNDERSTAND SUICIDE

BRUISED & WOUNDED: STRUGGLING TO UNDERSTAND SUICIDE
$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

CANTICLE OF THE CREATURES FOR SAINT FRANCIS OF ASSISI
$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.
