Pope Francis: Our Brother, Our Friend
Personal Recollections about the Man Who Became Pope
This fascinating new look at Pope Francis presents the personal insights of ten Jesuits, many who have known him since his first days as a Jesuit, and were interviewed for this book shortly after he was elected the Pope. Some were his professors, some his peers, and some younger Jesuits who were his students. Also interviewed for this book are non-Jesuits, including an Argentine senator, a prominent rabbi, a priest working in the slums of Buenos Aires that Bergoglio often visited. Also available as an e-book. Regular price: $19.95, sale price: $15.96
By What Authority?
An Evangelical Discovers Catholic Tradition
In this newly updated, expanded version of his popular work of apologetics, Shea presents a lively and entertaining look at his conversion to Catholicism from Evangelicalism and his discovery of Christian tradition. As an Evangelical, Shea accepted the principle of "sola scriptura" (Scripture alone) as the basis of faith. Now as a Catholic convert, he skillfully explains how and why Sacred Tradition occupies a central role in Divine Revelation. Also available as an e-book. Regular price: $16.95, sale price: $13.56
crystal clear and compelling case for Sacred Tradition, on the basis of
logic, history and Scripture. It is simply the best I have found."
- Scott Hahn, Author, Rome Sweet Home
Hans Urs von Balthasar
Again and again, in his theological writings, Hans Urs von Balthasar has addressed the fundamental issues of ofﬁce and ministry, of priesthood and discipleship. He has uncovered the foundations from a biblical and theological historical perspective and has offered answers to the current problems of priestly existence. This book presents the confrontation with relevant trends, and at the same time the opposing current generated by von Balthasar, since he does not follow popular positions but instead gives us the very core of the Gospel and of revelation, like rye bread. Regular price: $14.95, sale price: $11.56
prayed with and discussed openly among seminary formators, this book
carries the potential to reground all contemporary priestly formation in
deep intimacy with the mysteries of Christ."

The Layperson's Distinctive Role
Cardinal Francis Arinze
The call of lay people to be witnesses of Christ in the ordinary areas of secular life, such as family, work, recreation, politics and government, shows how demanding the apostolate of the lay people is. The book draws from the dynamic teachings of the Second Vatican Council, the riches of the 1987 Synod of Bishops on the Lay Faithful, and the emphasis on the lay apostolate by recent Popes, to present to lay people an attractive and demanding call to witness to Christ in society. Also available as an e-book.
Regular price: $9.95, sale price: $7.96
"The layperson is a layperson and has to live as a layperson with the power of baptism, which enables him to be a leaven of the love of God in society itself, to create and sow hope, to proclaim the faith, not from a pulpit but from his everyday life. And, like all of us, the layperson is called to carry his daily cross — the cross of the layperson, not of the priest.” - Pope Francis
The Relvance and Future of the Second Vatican Council
Cardinal Marc Ouellet
Fifty years after the opening of the Second Vatican Council, Cardinal Marc Ouellet-considered by many to have been a top candidate to succeed Pope Benedict XVI-gives his thoughts on the Council and what the Vatican II means for us today. In interviews with French priest Fr. Geoffroy de la Tousche, Cardinal Ouellet speaks both personally and professionally about the state of the Church since the Council, explaining what went wrong-and right-in the implementation of the Council's teachings. Also available as an e-book. Regular price: $16.95, sale price: $13.56
Worshipping the State
How Liberalism Became Our State Religion
Many Christians feel that they are being opposed at every turn by a well-orchestrated political and cultural campaign to de-Christianize every aspect of Western culture. They are right, and it goes even further back than the Obama Administration. Benjamin Wiker argues that it is liberals who seek to establish an official state religion: one of unbelief. He reveals that it was never the intention of the Founders to drive religion out of the public square with the First Amendment, but secular liberals have deliberately misinterpreted the establishment clause to serve their own ends: the de-Christianization of Western civilization. Regular price: $27.95, sale price: $22.36
book is the most forthright and unblinking analysis yet of the
ubiquitous assault on religion in American society. Every believer in
religious liberty should read it."
- James Hitchcock, author, History of the Catholic Church
