    • Why I Am Catholic (Unabridged)

      $15.98

      With atheism on the rise and millions tossing off religion, why would anyone consider the Catholic Church? Brandon Vogt, a bestselling author and the content director for Bishop Robert Barron’s Word on Fire Catholic Ministries, shares his passionate search for truth, a journey that culminated in the realization that Catholicism was right about a lot of things, maybe even everything. His persuasive case for the faith reveals a vision of Catholicism that has answers our world desperately needs and reminds those already in the Church what they love about it.

      A 2016 study by the Public Religion Research Institute found that 25 percent of adults (39 percent of young adults) describe themselves as unaffiliated with any religion. Millions of these so-called nones have fled organized religion and many more have rejected God altogether.

      Brandon Vogt was one of those nones. When he converted to Catholicism in college, he knew how confusing that decision was to many of his friends and family. But he also knew that the evidence he discovered pointed to one conclusion: Catholicism is true. To his delight, he discovered it was also exceedingly good and beautiful.

      Why I Am Catholic traces Vogt’s spiritual journey, making a refreshing, twenty-first century case for the faith and answering questions being asked by agnostics, nones, and atheists, the audience for his popular website, StrangeNotions.com, where Catholics and atheists dialogue. With references to Catholic thinkers such as G. K. Chesterton, Ven. Fulton Sheen, St. Teresa of Calcutta, and Bishop Robert Barron, Vogt draws together lines of evidence to help seekers discover why they should be Catholic as an alternative.

      Why I Am Catholic serves as a compelling reproposal of the Church for former Catholics, a persuasive argument for truth and beauty to those who have become jaded and disenchanted with religion, and at the same time offers practicing Catholics a much-needed dose of confidence and clarity to affirm their faith against an increasingly skeptical culture.

    • Catholic Hipster Handbook (Unabridged)

      $19.98

      Being a Catholic Hipster is all about an attitude–an attitude grounded in being part of a countercultural community of believers dedicated to something bigger than themselves in a world dominated by self-centeredness. It’s about yearning to learn more about the faith by seeking out Catholic cool–overlooked saints, forgotten prayers and feast days, and traditional practices long set aside by mainstream believers. The Catholic Hipster podcaster Tommy Tighe will help readers rediscover everything awesome about the Catholic faith.

      The Catholic Hipster started out in 2014 with a little bit of fun–the Catholic Hipster of the Year contest–on Tighe’s blog. But Twitter is where–in all its 140-character glory–that Tighe’s The Catholic Hipster movement really took root. That’s where a group of cool and funky countercultural Catholics gather to swap one-liners, hilarious hipster memes, and all things authentically Catholic.

      Tighe even met comedienne Jeannie Gaffigan, who wrote the foreword for The Catholic Hipster Handbook, on Twitter. She said what drew her to the feed was that Tighe was an embarrassingly Catholic dude who knew he was embarrassingly Catholic and was not embarrassed by it and that he was not preachy or judgey or divisive. Catholic hipsters in a nutshell.

      Tighe and a group of hipster friends–including Sarah Vabulas, Anna Mitchell, Fr. Kyle Schnippel, and Lisa M. Hendey–explore the beautiful weirdness of the Catholic Church and invite others along for the journey. They share their love for extraordinary saints, offer up obscure prayers, provide short reflections on something quirky and Catholic they’ve rediscovered, and dare readers to put their faith into action with some cool and challenging practices they can do on their own.

    • Peace Of Christmas (Unabridged)

      $19.99

      The Peace of Christmas offers an opportunity to reflect with Pope Francis on the many moods and challenges of one of the central realities of our faith: Our God became one of us, came to dwell in our midst, and began life as we all do, as a tiny baby, needy and vulnerable and dependent on the people around him for his very survival.

      Through the pope’s insights and reflections, you will be comforted and challenged, enlightened and reassured. He knows that Christmas is many things to many people, often changing with the times and circumstances, with your experiences in the months since last Christmas. Just as God chose to become one of us, so our lives are shaped and changed by the world around us.

      While the book is divided into daily reflections, it’s more a book for browsing than marching through day by day. Keep it someplace handy, pick it up when you have a few minutes of quiet. Turn to its pages when you feel frustrated with the hectic pace of preparations or when you feel suddenly struck by the wonder and beauty of this season. Let the words of Scripture and the words of Pope Francis move you to a new appreciation of the incarnation.

    • Unholy Trinity : Blocking The Lefts Assault On Life Marriage And Gender (Unabrid

      $19.98

      IT’S NOW OR NEVER FOR CONSERVATIVE VALUES

      This highly anticipated debut from Matt Walsh of The Blaze demands that conservative voters make a last stand and fight for the moral center of America. The Trump presidency and Republican Congress provides an urgent opportunity to stop the Left’s value-bending march to destroy the culture of our country.

      Republican control of the presidency, senate, and House of Representatives for the next two years is a precious–and fleeting–gift to conservatives. Americans concerned with blocking liberals’ swift rethinking of life, marriage, and gender need to capture this moment to turn the tide of history.

      For years conservatives have worried endlessly about peripheral issues, liberals have been hard at work chipping away at the bedrock of our civilization, and putting a new foundation in its place. New attitudes on abortion, gay marriage, and gender identity threaten to become culture defining victories for progressives–radically altering not just our politics, but dangerously placing Man above God and the self above the good of the whole.
      What’s at stake? The most fundamental elements of society, including how we understand reality itself.

      In The Unholy Trinity, TheBlaze contributor Matt Walsh draws on Catholic teachings to expose how liberals have attempted, with startling success, to redefine life, marriage, and gender. Abortion redefines human life, gay marriage redefines the family, and the latest theories on gender redefine what it means to be a man or a woman. The potential consequences are dire. If progressivism can bend life, family, and sex to its whims, Walsh argues, it has established relativism over God as the supreme law, and owns the power to destroy western civilization.

      With insight, candor, and faith, Walsh shows conservatives how to confront liberal arguments, defeat the progressive agenda for good, and reclaim American culture for truth.

    • Saint Vs The Scholar (Unabridged)

      $29.99

      Set between the violence of the Crusades and the threat of the Inquisition is a forgotten episode in history: the fight between Bernard of Clairvaux (the saint and doctor of the church) and Peter Abelard (the scholar). This popular history shows how what happened between two extraordinary men face-to-face in a contest of wills long ago is a key to understanding who we are today as people of faith. This intense, emotional, partisan clash between two men, the method by which the saint wins the battle, and the ways in which the scholar provokes the saint’s outrage, changed the course of history as well as framed the conflict between reason and faith that exists day.

This final book in the canon captures the last bittersweet years of a faithful woman who, in her grand silence and through her pain, touched more lives and did more good than anyone imagined.

    • Stitching A Life In Persimmon Hollow

      $34.99

      In At Home in Persimmon Hollow, readers’ hearts were captured by Agnes Foster as she built a new life for herself in a very special frontier town amid the Florida wilderness-and found love along the way. Now, in the second novel of the Persimmon Hollow Legacy series, we meet starry-eyed seamstress Josefa Gomez.

      Living with her aunt and uncle, the housekeeper and caretaker at Agnes and Seth’s Taylor Grove compound, Josefa longs for the glamorous life of a fashion designer far beyond her small town. But her dreams of designing exquisite gowns for rich women in Paris and New York alarm her Tia Lupita, who fears that Josefa’s ambitions are unrealistic for a girl of her station. In late 19th century America, a Mexican woman’s best prospect may well be a suitable marriage and a position in the household of a kind employer. When Lupita announces a plan for Josefa to move away from Persimmon Hollow to live with distant relatives in Texas and prepare for an arranged marriage, the headstrong beauty knows she has to make an audacious choice.

      Will Josefa follow her dreams of glamor or submit to her aunt’s plans for stability and security? Can she find a way to use her gifts in a truly productive way? And when a choice arises between two suitors, will she choose a rich man who could give her all the outward trappings she desires, or a quiet carpenter who has fewer material goods-but a bigger heart?

    • Fragment (Unabridged)

      $29.99

      In the newest high-stakes historical thriller from master storyteller Davis Bunn, skepticism vies with faith amid the grit and grandeur of post-World-War-I Europe.

      It’s 1923, and a resilient Paris is starting to recover from the ravages of World War I and the Spanish Flu Epidemic. Enter young Muriel Ross, an amateur American photographer tasked with documenting the antiques that her employer, U.S. Senator Tom Bryan, has traveled to France in order to acquire. Although she’s exhilarated to have escaped her parents and the confines of their stifling Virginia home, Muriel has lingering questions about why the senator has chosen her for this grand adventure. Nevertheless, she blossoms in her new surroundings, soaking up Parisian culture and capturing the sights and sounds of Paris on her camera.

      But events take a dangerous turn when she discovers that the senator is on a mission far more momentous-and potentially deadly-than a mere shopping trip. At the Cathedral of Notre Dame, Senator Bryan asks Muriel to photograph an astonishing artifact: a piece of the True Cross, discovered by Empress Helena-a historical figure familiar to readers of The Pilgrim. When rumors surface that another fragment has been unearthed, Muriel becomes enmeshed in a covert international alliance dedicated to authenticating the fragment-and protecting it from those who will stop at nothing to steal and discredit it.

    • Saint Francis Of Assisi (Unabridged)

      $24.95

      Chesterton’s Saint Francis of Assisi (1181-1226) is the popular biography of a beloved Christian saint and founder of the Franciscans, told by an equally beloved author and storyteller. It is an accessible, interesting and compelling story of a man known more by legend than fact. In this brilliant reflection on the poor friar of Assisi, G. K. Chesterton unfolds the life and times of St. Francis, from his conversion as a young man to his receiving of the stigmata at the end of his life. While many modern biographers stumble in their effort to grasp the essence of the saint, Chesterton shows that Francis’ entire life-his prayer, his poverty, his asceticism, his love of creation, and all his eccentricities-flowed from his profound love for Christ and all men. In Chesterton’s colorful prose, St. Francis shines with the splendor of sanctity and calls each of us to the same intense and animating love for God and His people. The enigma that is St. Francis of Assisi is one with which we should be intimately familiar. Upon first glance our age seems incredibly dissimilar to the time in which Francis lived; however, closer examination will reveal a similar zeitgeist. G. K. Chesterton takes us into the life of St. Francis not by giving us a list of facts, dates, and accomplishments, but rather by taking us into the mind and heart of the man. As with any person, mere facts cannot truly tell the story that only knowing the person can tell. With this book one feels as though he has come to know Francis, rather than just know about him.

      This book reads like a letter of introduction of St. Francis of Assisi to the modern world. Skeptics as well as the devout are invited to understand this man who turned the world on its head, or rather turned himself on his head to see the world more clearly.

He brings reinvigorated attention to the many roles of the priest-provider, mediator, protector, teacher, judge, and more-all of which are united in the priest’s place as spiritual father to God’s people, and ultimately he shows that it is through the priest, empowered by God, that the continuing presence of Jesus Christ makes itself known to our world. Lively, insightful, and engaging, Many Are Called will serve as an inspiration to students and seminarians considering a vocation, to clergy renewing their call, to Catholic readers looking to deepen their faith, and to seekers curious about one of Catholicism’s defining but least understood elements. With a foreword by the Most Reverend Timothy M. Dolan, the Archbishop of New York, this is a truly special book, one that speaks to the restless heart of humanity and reveals that our pleas for a spiritual father have already been answered.

    • Practicing Catholic (Unabridged)

      $9.99

      James Carroll delivers a tour-de-force look at what it means to be a Catholic today–set against the rich history of the Catholic Church in America. Brilliantly wresting meaning from the historical, social and religious strands of his story, Carroll illuminates the Church’s transformation from reactionary monolith to an institution in which the deepest aspects of faith are being called into question. Carroll reveals his own story–as a Catholic boy in the 1940s and ’50s, as a seminarian and priest in the crucible of the 1960s and early ’70s, and as a committed but questioning Catholic today–with an emotional impact reminiscent of his An American Requiem. Practicing Catholic is for the millions of practicing, questioning, or lapsed Catholics and others who are searching for a way to reconcile the acts of Church leaders with the faith and the Church they still want to claim as their own.

    • Francis : Man Of Prayer (Unabridged)

      $14.99

      First Jesuit

      First Latin American

      A new pope who chose as his first act a simple request: please pray for me.

      The resignation of Pope Benedict XVI took the world by surprise and for good reason. More than six hundred years had passed since a pope last left his post.

      Jorge Mario Bergoglio, now serving as Pope Francis, is a man of prayer and a man of action. He is also a humble man who has always promoted others over himself. In fact, it was Bergoglio who bowed out of the running in the papal election of 2005, to facilitate the rise of Benedict XVI.

      Pope Francis faces a Catholic Church in crisis-a Church that has lost the media pull of John Paul II and is still hounded by pedophile scandals and the filtration of documents from former papal administrations. His first year may not be an easy one, but neither this man nor the Church itself has ever shied away from the challenges thrust upon them.

      Pope Francis is austere and simple but has vast theological training. He is a man of his time but one who also travels by subway and bus just like any other citizen. Tirelessly fighting poverty and marginalization, he is a beacon of hope for the poor, persecuted sectors of the Church.

      Francis is the biography of a meek man who has suddenly become one of the most powerful and influential men on the planet. Could it be a Catholic spring has finally arrived after a very long winter?

    • Forgiveness : A Catholic Approach

      $19.95

      Whether we are uncertain what real forgiveness looks like, are tired of forgiving, or don’t know where to start, Forgiveness: A Catholic Approach offers spiritual considerations and practical guidance.

      In Forgiveness: A Catholic Approach, Father R. Scott Hurd writes of the spiritual, psychological, physical, and social benefits of learning how to forgive and find peace. Drawing from his pastoral experience, in twenty-four short chapters, Father Hurd examines how human weakness affects such things as our ability to forgive and reconcile, our capacity to trust, and how we cope when a plea for forgiveness is rejected by a person we have wronged. We learn that through these very experiences, we find in Jesus Christ and the sacraments a way to move forward toward healing.

      The first question Father Hurd addresses is one that perplexes many people, why forgive? Here we learn that forgiveness is essential for human growth and flourishing. Forgiveness is not only a human experience; it is an expression of God’s love and mercy. Forgiveness is at once deeply personal and an opportunity for sharing the Good News. As participants in the New Evangelization, our acts of forgiveness and reconciliation offer people an experience of God’s love. Father Hurd writes, Forgiveness from our hearts can turn others’ hearts toward God.

      All of us know that there is more to forgiveness than simply saying I’m sorry. In the section entitled, Hallmarks of Forgiveness, Father Hurd deftly outlines seven such marks of forgiveness that reflect the teaching and example of Our Lord. In Jesus, we learn how to forgive others as God has forgiven us. Forgiveness is a decision, a process, and a gift.

      Equally challenging today is the question of how to forgive. In Forgiveness: A Catholic Approach we find an entire section on this topic. With priestly wisdom, Father Hurd examines a wide variety of experiences of forgiveness and reconciliation. With examples from Scripture, Church tradition, literature, and his own ministry, he offers a useful ten-step process to aid people ready to make the decision to forgive.
      -Cardinal Donald Wuerl, from the Introduction

    • Spiritual Life : The Keys To Growing Closer To God

      $49.95

      Growing Closer to God

      What does it mean to be close to God? In this course, Fr. Jeffrey Kirby will guide you through the most basic principles of the Spiritual Life, defining key terms and analyzing specific biblical verses that will greatly aid both newcomers to Christianity and those who have been Christian for years.

      A Spiritual Checklist

      In our spiritual journey, it is important for us to have a structure of prayer. Fr. Kirby outlines some key ways in order to help us persevere in this most important task. Some of these points include:

      – The Liturgy of the Hours
      – Sanctifying the day’s activity
      – Morning offerings and evening prayers

      Different Stages of the Spiritual Life

      Whether one feels like praying or not, Fr. Kirby discusses the importance to do so, addressing the different stages a person may go through throughout the course of his interior, spiritual progress. Using scripture as a basis to teach us how Christ’s life too had moments of suffering and moments of joy, Fr. Kirby expertly shows us how our lives are expected to do the same.

      A Universal Calling

      The Spiritual Life is not simply for consecrated religious and priests, but for everyone, in every state of life. Whether you are a stay-at-home mom, a hard working dad, or a student in high school or college, God is calling you to holiness. Fr. Kirby shows us the need to faithfully answer this call to holiness and does so in a way that is very practical as well.

    • Christian Spirituality : A Historical Study Of Prayer Detachment And Love O

      $49.95

      The Personal Response of the Christian to God

      In addition to the doctrinal and theological history of the Catholic faith, it is essential that we add the history of Christian spirituality – namely, the very way that Christians have made their personal response to the God who reveals Himself to His people through Jesus Christ. This course surveys important spiritual movements, the rich diversity of spiritual insight that has marked the history of Christianity starting from the early Desert Fathers, the founding of the great religious orders, Christian mysticism, 19th and 20th century Catholic spiritual contributions, and more. In taking a look at the history of Christian spirituality in this way, one ultimately comes to a deeper understanding of man’s proper relation to God, and how he ought to respond to God’s love.

      The Uniqueness of Christian Spirituality

      The primary truth of Christian spirituality is that God entered his world personally- as John’s Gospel, chapter 1: 14 states: The Word became flesh and dwelt among us. God crowns creation with his personal, physical presence, pouring himself out in a new covenant whereby he has forever united himself to the human race. In the Incarnation of the Word, the Catholic focus on the material world is vindicated against all those ancient and modern pessimisms that seek to denigrate the dignity of man on one side, or remove God from the world of men on the other. It is only Christian spirituality that safeguards the truth about man and God, since together they are united in a freedom of grace by which the world is saved.

      The History of Christian Spirituality

      A study of the history of Christian spirituality reveals that the Christian quest for holiness and perfection is marked by certain principles and characteristics. The early Christians, unlike Christians of today, did not accommodate the faith to the age. The early Christians converted out of a culture and they lived in contrast to it. The life of the earliest Christians was liturgical, especially in the sense that, as today, it centered on the Eucharist-the public worship of the Church, done in obedience to Christ’s command to the Apostles at the Last Supper: Do this in remembrance of me. The social dimension of Christian life is seen in the earliest Christians, who lived in community. According to the Acts of the Apostles, Christians held all their possessions in common and distributed to everyone according to his need (Acts 4:35).

    • Daniel : Apocalypse Of The Old Testament

      $49.95

      Symbols of Divine Providence

      The Book of Daniel, on the surface, tells a powerful story of God’s faithfulness and constancy, even in the midst of great trial. Understanding the book’s symbolic language and images, however, requires some outside research. Join Paul Niskanen, Ph.D., as he analyzes and explains Daniel’s content and symbolism, revealing the book’s rich significance to the New Testament and to modern Christians.

      Echoes of Revelation

      Daniel is considered a work of apocalyptic literature, meaning that its contents are primarily symbolic. The book does, however, contain real historical figures, and takes place during real historical events. Over eight lectures, Dr. Niskanen explains the relationship between history and symbolism in Daniel, making sense of key figures and themes:

      * The close relationship between religion and politics in ancient Israel
      * The meaning and significance of Daniel’s dream visions
      * God’s hand and the role of free will in human history
      * Daniel as a bridge to the New Testament

      Far from being an isolated work of spiritual wisdom, Daniel reverberates throughout the New Testament. By illuminating the symbolism and connecting the dots between Daniel and Jesus Christ, Dr. Niskanen’s course shows the breadth and profundity of Daniel’s significance.

      Why study Daniel?

      The Book of Daniel invites the reader to explore a unique chapter in salvation history. Today’s Christians can feel intimidated by society’s increasing disdain for religion, something which Daniel understood all too well. God’s faithfulness to Daniel during his persecutions and sufferings is the same faithfulness he offers us today. Daniel is thus a very timely book for today’s Christians, reminding us of the unchanging nature of God’s love and fidelity, even in the midst of darkness.

      Our History

      Daniel demonstrates how God unfolds his plan of salvation through human history. This is a history in which we as Christians participate. Studying Daniel helps us to better understand our place in that history, and it gives us an enhanced perspective on God’s role in that history. In these eight lectures, Dr. Niskanen shows how we can find ourselves in this book, and how it is no less relevant today than in centuries past.

    • Mud And The Masterpiece (Unabridged)

      $24.98

      The reason sinners ran from the religious, yet ran to Jesus had everything to do with his heart’s attitude toward people. They could sense Jesus was for them–not against them. Unlike the Pharisees, who could only see the mud of sin, Jesus saw a masterpiece under the mud that was so valuable, he was willing to give his life to restore messy people to the original work of art he created them to be. Combining an engaging study of Jesus’s encounters with imperfect people with inspiring stories of ordinary Christians having Christlike impact, this insightful book encourages readers to see the masterpiece beneath the mud in everyone. It shows how to align our hearts with the heart of God and our actions with the interactions of Jesus in order to show God’s love to a hurting, broken world.
