61 MINUTES: REFLECTIONS & HOMILIES FOR THE YEAR OF LUKE
$19.95
This book is the fruit of holy hours and meditations on the readings for Sunday Mass throughout the year. The author journeys with us on the road to Jerusalem. The journey of Christ is one of prayer and compassion for the poor, the lowly, the marginalized. The Evangelist's narrative is like a diary of a love story between a son and a Prodigal Father. The author walks with Jesus as one of the disciples, trying to answer the question that is the center of the Gospel: Who do you say that I am?

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.

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 POLLITICS

product image
$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

LISTEN TO OUR WORDS

LISTEN TO OUR WORDS
$20.00
Babe Pratt, Red Dutton, Fritz Hanson and Tommy Gorman are only a few of the legendary figures featured in sportswriter Jim Coleman's long-awaited memoir. Long Ride on a Hobby-horse is a nostalgic and hilarious look back at some of the most memorable players, coaches, characters and highlights in Canadian sports and journalism, written by a leading newspaperman whose career spans six decades. Jim Coleman has, he says, known some genuine oddballs. There was the veteran newspaper editor whose parrot would spring into action at the sound of military music and circle menacingly around unsuspecting guests; the reclusive reporter who regularly commuted to his office by canoe or snowshoes; The Good Kid, a diminutive and roly-poly carnie who was a big spender and hustler around the racetrack; Break-the-Bed Louis and Whitey the Pest, two of many larcenous characters in Toronto's underworld. There are nostalgic accounts of sports highlights - the first time a team from Western Canada won the Grey Cup; the Calgary Stampeders' national football triumph in 1948; the time goalie Red McCusker held an opposing team scoreless while he was drunk; defenceman Jean Pusie's on-the-ice buffoonery, and many other memorable events and players.
