This practical companion will help you actively engage in this essential form of prayer and cultivate a true friendship with Christ. It will also teach you to rest in God’s love and receive healing, grace, peace, and joy during this sacred season.

    Fr. Bartunek’s brief, power-packed reflections, focusing on Lenten themes from true fasting to carrying your cross to overcoming fear and temptation, will help you structure your prayer, grow in faith, and experience renewal. They will also enable you to follow the Holy Spirit’s lead along the path to holiness, encounter the Real Presence of our Lord more fully, and cultivate a greater love of neighbor in your heart. Features include:

    • A three-step guide to daily mental prayer with short explanations
    • The “Five-R method” for meditative prayer (Who knew it could be so easy?)
    • Daily inspirations from Scripture and the saints to stir your thirsty heart in prayer
    • Reflections to help you develop a truly personal relationship with God
    • Introspective questions to help you converse with God and “go deeper” in your faith journey
    • Tips for persevering in prayer during difficult times and making resolutions

    Every saint and renowned spiritual director throughout the ages has said the same thing: if we desire to become saints, we must spend time daily in meditation. This life-changing book will irrigate the soil of your soul and enliven your faith, giving you a heightened spiritual maturity and a greater share in the abundant life. This volume―the first of three―also contains a resource list, including a video series, for further spiritual direction and support.

    Amazing Truths: How Science and the Bible Agree

    Amazing Truths: How Science and the Bible Agree
    Guillen, Michael
    $18.99

    Does science discredit the Bible, God, religious faith?

    Absolutely not, says Dr. Michael Guillen, former Harvard physics instructor and Emmy-winning ABC News Science Editor. In Amazing Truths, he uses his entertaining, down-to-earth storytelling skills to reveal ten astonishing truths affirmed by both ancient Scripture and modern science that answer some of our biggest questions:

  • Can faith really move mountains?
  • Does absolute truth exist?
  • Are humans truly unique?
  • Is it possible to communicate with God?
  • How much about the universe do we actually know?
  • How could Jesus have been fully man and fully God?
  • In Amazing Truths, Dr. Guillen explains that faith is not some outdated way of thinking. Faith is a necessary part of science, Christianity, and any intelligent, comprehensive, coherent worldview--vastly more powerful than even logic.

    Amazing Truths will expand your mind and bolster your faith. You will see for yourself what Dr. Guillen, a theoretical physicist and devout Christian, has discovered in a lifetime of serious exploration--that science and faith are not at odds. In fact, they're the ultimate power couple.

    Apostle of the Crucified Lord: A Theological Introduction to Paul and His Letters

    Apostle of the Crucified Lord: A Theological Introduction to Paul and His Letters
    Gorman, Michael J
    $53.99

    Unlike the many books that treat the apostle Paul merely as a historical figure and his letters as literary relics, this new study by Michael Gorman focuses on the theological message of Paul’s writings, particularly what they have to say to the contemporary church.

    An innovative and comprehensive treatment of Paul, including commentary on all of the Pauline letters, Gorman’s Apostle of the Crucified Lord unpacks the many dimensions of Paul’s thought carefully and holistically. Six introductory chapters provide background discussion on Paul’s world, his résumé, his letters, his gospel, his spirituality, and his theology, while the main body of the book covers in turn and in full detail each of the Pauline epistles. Gorman gives the context of each letter, offers a careful reading of the text, and colors his words with insightful quotations from earlier interpreters of Paul.

    Enhancing the text itself are questions for reflection and discussion at the end of each chapter and numerous photos, maps, and tables throughout. All in all, Apostle of the Crucified Lord is the ideal book for students and any other readers interested in seriously engaging Paul’s challenging letters.

    THIS COMPREHENSIVE, WIDELY USED TEXT by Michael Gorman presents a theologically focused, historically grounded interpretation of the apostle Paul and raises significant questions for engaging Paul today. After providing substantial background information on Paul's world, career, letters, gospel, spirituality, and theology, Gorman covers in full detail each of the thirteen Pauline epistles. Enhancing the text are questions for reflection and discussion at the end of each chapter as well as numerous photos, maps, and tables throughout.

    The new introduction in this second edition helpfully situates the book within current approaches to Paul. Gorman also brings the conversation up-to-date with major recent developments in Pauline studies and devotes greater attention to themes of participation, transformation, resurrection, justice, and peace.

    Armor of God

    Armor of God
    Rose Publishing
    $4.99
    Armor of God pamphlet helps teachers and leaders bring Apostle Paul's message to the Ephesians (6:10-18) to life. This bestselling pamphlet provides historically accurate background of a Roman Centurion's armor then draws vital correlations to the spiritual armor God gives his children: the Belt of Truth, the Breastplate of Righteousness, Feet Prepared with Gospel of Peace, The Shield of Faith, The Helmet of Salvation, and the Sword of the Spirit. Full-color and glossy, this pamphlet helps those you teach learn to "stand firm in the faith."

    The Armor of God pamphlet provides the following information:
  • A detailed description of the armor of God
  • Historical background on how the armor was put on and its purpose
  • The application of the armor to our lives today, such as how the "Belt of Truth" prepares believers to be truthful
  • Other biblical passages
  • Greek or Latin terms
  • Size: 8.5"x 5.5", unfolds to 33" long. Fits inside most Bible covers.

    Key Features of This Armor of God Pamphlet
  • The passage of Ephesians 6:10-18 verse-by-verse alongside an illustration of a Roman Centurion in full armor
  • Background information on Paul, his missionary journey, and life in Ephesus
  • A chart that helps believers stand firm in spiritual warfare by contrasting the "Devil's Schemes" with God's plan and the armor or weapon to combat it, and a Scriptural reference. For example: One of the Devil's schemes is LIES. God's plan/armor is Truth. Proverbs 14:25 would be a good reminder of God's plan
  • Help students put on the full armor of God when facing temptations and struggles. The key to this best-selling pamphlet is the insights brought by Paul's knowledge of a Centurion's armor.

    Historically Accurate Roman Armor Depicted

    Having a correct picture in mind is important to accurately teaching and understanding this portion of Scripture. While many other illustrations of The Armor of God show armor from the Middle Ages, or other time periods, the Rose illustration presents historically accurate Roman armor. In a side-by-side fold-out format, The Armor of God pamphlet describes each piece of armor, its historical background, and its application to our spiritual battles today.

    The Apostle Paul knew how important it was for believers to understand the provision of spiritual armor that God made for them. Paul's teaching to the Church at Ephesus was born out of firsthand knowledge of Roman Centurions armor. He saw them up close on many occasions.

    Be Comforted: Feeling Secure in the Arms of God: OT Commentary Isaiah

    Be Comforted: Feeling Secure in the Arms of God: OT Commentary Isaiah
    Wiersbe, Warren W
    $16.99

    For anyone who thinks that comfort is equivalent to pity and that it is only priceless to those who need an emotional crutch, best-selling author Warren Wiersbe applies the words of the prophet Isaiah to prove that God's comfort is no such thing. The word comfort actually translates "to repent" in Hebrew; our English translation, however, adds another dimension to the word since it originated from two Latin words meaning "with strength."

    With definitions and insights like this, the "pastor of pastors" and phenomenal author Warren Wiersbe continues to enliven the Scriptures as he weaves the words of Isaiah with historical explanations and thought-provoking questions for every chapter, creating a study guide that can be used in personal Bible study or with a group. With over 4 million copies of his "Be" series alone in circulation, he is a man who has given his life to a deep examination of the Word of God, to communicating it in such a way that the masses see its relevance for today.

    $23.95
    From the cross Jesus gave us his mother to be our mother, too: a singularly holy model, consoler, and intercessor for our spiritual journey. Yet most Protestants, and too many Catholics don't understand the role that God wants her to play in our lives. In Behold Your Mother, Tim Staples takes you through the Church's teachings about the Blessed Virgin Mary, showing their firm Scriptural and historical roots and dismantling the objections of those who mistakenly believe that Mary competes for the attention due Christ alone. Combining the best recent scholarship with a convert's in-depth knowledge of the arguments, Staples has assembled the most thorough and useful Marian apologetic you'll find anywhere. Relevant and essential -- Mary matters. Read Behold Your Mother and find out just how much.

    Biblical Defense of Catholicism, A

    Biblical Defense of Catholicism, A
    Armstrong, Dave
    $24.95

    A biblical defense of the Catholic faith

    This exciting book shows that, far from straying from the Bible, Catholicism is eminently and thoroughly biblical. Indeed, Catholicism is the only Christian religion that is in full conformity with what the Bible clearly teaches.

    To demonstrate this, Catholic author Dave Armstrong (a former Protestant campus missionary) focuses on those issues about which Catholics and Protestants disagree the most: the role of the Bible as a rule of faith, whether we are justified by faith alone, whether doctrine develops, what the Eucharist really is, veneration of Mary and prayer to the saints, the existence of purgatory, the role of penance in salvation, and the nature and infallibility of the papacy.

    Working patiently, systematically, and, above all, charitably (and citing Church councils, the Church Fathers, canon law, and the Catechism of the Catholic Church), Armstrong begins his comprehensive examination of each of these disputed issues with an authoritative explanation of what the Catholic Church actually teaches.

    Then, with skill and tenacity, he subjects each Catholic teaching to microscopic scrutiny, measuring its conformity with the Bible. Armstrong's rigorous, Scripture-packed analysis relies on hundreds of Bible passages (including verses from 229 of the 259 chapters in the New Testament!), shedding light on the meaning of those passages as well as on the meaning and truth of the doctrines in question.

    The result? With a mastery of Scripture equal to that of the most committed Protestants, Armstrong demonstrates that the Catholic Church is the "Bible Church par excellence," and that many common Protestant doctrines (such as sola Scriptura) are in fact themselves not biblical.

    Here is a book that challenges Protestants to reconsider their anti-Catholic assumptions; and that will lead Catholics to turn with greater confidence to Scripture, where they will find a powerful biblical defense of their Catholic faith.

    Biblical Names of Jesus: Beautiful, Powerful Portraits of Christ

    Biblical Names of Jesus: Beautiful, Powerful Portraits of Christ
    Thigpen, Paul
    $24.95
    Have you ever wondered why Jesus has so many names? It's not an accident. Each one is invaluable in helping us to understand, as best we can, the full nature of Jesus Christ.

    Paul Thigpen dives deep into Scripture from Genesis to Revelation to illuminate the many names of Jesus found therein and explain how each one reveals something new and essential about Our Lord.

    The Biblical Names of Jesus is like no other book. It is an engrossing trek through Scripture spanning the entire Bible, focusing on the typologies of Jesus through 18 of his unique names. You will come away with a deeper knowledge of Christ, and a fuller understanding of how the whole of the Bible points toward Jesus.

    With his expert, yet accessible prose, Paul Thigpen will help you:
  • Deepen your understanding of Jesus through his more familiar titles, such as Christ, Lord, Savior, Son of God, and Son of Man.
  • Ponder the life-changing beauty and mystery of less-familiar names such as the Bride-groom, Lion of the Tribe of Judah, Dawn from on High, Alpha and Omega...and how they show aspects of Jesus' love for us, his Kingship, and His desire to lead us to heaven.
  • Examine - like each brilliant facet of a diamond - the One who holds you in existence, and come to know Jesus better than ever before.
  • Uncover the types and prefigurements of Christ throughout Scripture...and take your personal relationship with Our Lord to a new level!

    Biblical Roots of Marian Consecration: Devotion to the Immaculate Heart in Light of Scripture

    Biblical Roots of Marian Consecration: Devotion to the Immaculate Heart in Light of Scripture
    Kapler, Shane
    $29.95

    Did you know that Marian Consecration is biblical? With roots stretching all the way back to Genesis?

    Just as Jesus is the only Way to the Father (Jn 14:6), the sole mediator between God and man (1 Tm 2:5), so Mary is the primary mediator and intercessor before her Son. By virtue of the grace given to her as the Mother of God, she is the "Queen of Heaven and Earth."

    In this timely book, Shane Kapler uncovers the biblical basis for Marian Consecration. He demonstrates how entrusting oneself to Our Lady--and living this devotion through practices such as praying the Rosary, wearing the Brown Scapular, and keeping the Five First Saturdays--is firmly rooted and foreshadowed in the Old and New Testaments. In Mary, we see the heights to which each of us is called: to be without blemish (Eph 5:27), be glorified in body and soul (1 Cor 15:51-53), and share Christ's heavenly reign (Rv 3:21).

    Discover how, like Saint Joseph and Saint John the Apostle, we are invited to share in Mary's interior life, to fully surrender ourselves to the action of the Holy Spirit, and to begin loving Jesus with her Immaculate Heart.

    More than ever, the popes have recognized Our Lady of Fatima's call--as urgent now as it was in 1917--for consecration and devotion to the Immaculate Heart as a reiteration of the Gospel, a plea for Christians to enflesh the message of Scripture.

    "Blessed are the pure [or 'immaculate'] in heart, for they shall see God" (Mt 5:8)

    Bound for Freedom: The Book of Exodus in Jewish and Christian Traditions

    Bound for Freedom: The Book of Exodus in Jewish and Christian Traditions
    Larsson, G
    $30.00
    Bound for Freedom demonstrates that the book of Exodus presents a defining act of liberation not only in Judaism, but also in the Christian understanding of salvation history. That defining act, Larsson argues, takes place at Sinai with the giving of the Torah. Thus Exodus is not about unconditional freedom; rather, as the title of this book suggests, there is no freedom without boundaries. While doing justice to the historical setting of Exodus, Larsson stresses the history of theological interpretation, beginning with early Jewish interpretive traditions. The results illustrate both the vitality of those traditions and the spiritual and moral relevance of Exodus for today's reader.
