Fr. Jacques Philippe

Called to Life

$9.95

How do I find fulfillment in life? How do I obtain happiness? How do I fully become a man or woman? Despite a multitude of self-help books in recent years, these eternal questions have become increasingly urgent in today's directionless world.

Author Jacques Philippe provides some answers. In his new book, Called to Life, he explains that a complete and fulfilled life is much more assured when we stop trying to chart our own course, when we realize that we are essentially creatures called by God. He goes on to describe where and how these calls take place: the events of life, the Word of God in Scripture, and interior motions of the Holy Spirit. Learning to recognize and follow these calls is what leads to a happy and full life.

Called to Life includes a special section on how to read Sacred Scripture prayerfully (Lectio Divina), making this a timely source of inspiration and guidance following the recommendations of Pope Benedict XVI and the 2008 Synod of Bishops on the Word of God.

Time for God

$9.95

Are you too busy to pray? What if you could actually gain time and be more productive by praying? Would you pray more? We often forget the real secret to gaining time and being productive is to seek first His kingdom and His righteousness , and all these things shall be yours as well (Mt 6:33). If we make time for God through prayer, He multiplies our time and makes it fruitful and productive in all areas of our life. But have you ever felt unsure about how to pray? For that matter, what exactly is prayer and who is it for? And where, when and how should you pray?

These questions find an answer in this latest book from Scepter, Time for God. Written in a simple and modern style, author Jacques Philippe draws on years of experience as a spiritual guide to illuminate the fundamental principles of true prayer and describes some common mistakes and misconceptions that can lead it astray. This book is a must-read for anyone wanting to make better use of their time with God.

Time for God has become an international bestseller in French and Spanish and is written by the bestselling author of Interior Freedom, also published by Scepter.

Many people today long for something more; we thirst for God and a deeper spirituality, but aren't sure how to get there or even where to begin. Spiritual masters have always believed that prayer is crucial in our relationship with God, but many of us feel unsure about beginning to pray; or easily abandon prayer when the going gets rough.
