Man Virtues: What the Hell Am I Doing with My Life?

Man Virtues: What the Hell Am I Doing with My Life?
Lockwood, Robert P
$16.95

Robert P. Lockwood (you can call him Bob) has asked the same question you've asked dozens of times:

"What the hell am I doing with my life?"

Like you, he has wondered why he does what he does, and why it can be so hard to be the person he wants to be. In the end, it's about wanting happiness. Not three-beer happiness, I-got-a-raise happiness, or the-Steelers-made-the-playoffs happiness, but that quiet contentment that comes from living a good life.

7 Men: And the Secret of Their Greatness

7 Men: And the Secret of Their Greatness
$17.99

In Seven Men, New York Times bestselling author Eric Metaxas presents seven exquisitely crafted portraits of widely known--but not well understood--Christian men, each of whom uniquely showcases a commitment to live by certain virtues in the truth of the gospel.

Each of the seven men profiled--George Washington, William Wilberforce, Eric Liddell, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Jackie Robinson, John Paul II, and Charles Colson--call us to a more elevated way of living, one that embodies the gospel in the world around us.

All seven biographies represent the life of a man who experienced the struggles and challenges to be strong in the face of forces and circumstances that would have destroyed the resolve of lesser men.

Seven Men asks and answers pressing questions, including:

  • What does it take to be a true exemplar as a father, brother, husband, leader, coach, counselor, change agent, and wise man?
  • What does it mean to stand for honesty, courage, and charity?
  • Written in a beautiful and engaging style, Seven Men addresses what it means to be a man today, at a time when media and popular culture present images of masculinity that are not the picture presented in Scripture and historic civil life--encouraging us to think critically, act honorably, and lead by example.

    Praise for Seven Men:

    This is a book to read, to read aloud to others, and then read again. In a day when children are growing up stunted because of our diet of empty-headed celebrities and contemptible villains, true heroism and manliness needs special nourishment. Eric Metaxas has done it again, and again we are in his debt.

    --Os Guinness, author of A Free People's Suicide

    What is true manhood? And what makes a man in our 21st century? These are vital questions that my friend Eric Metaxas helps us wrestle with in this great new book. In looking back to seven outstanding men of history, Eric helps us understand the essential elements of manhood in any age. This is a superb work--and I highly recommend it.

    Be a Man!

    Be a Man!
    Richards, Larry
    $17.95

    Men are rediscovering the importance of the spiritual life. And Father Larry Richards is helping them do it. While some writers apply a one-size-fits-all approach to the Christian life, Father Richards draws on his many years of ministry and his own experience as a man to inspire other men as men.

    In Be a Man!, he recounts his struggles to learn true manhood, as well as the inspiring stories of others he has served in his decades as a priest. He tells men how to focus on the right goal, how to live as a beloved son of God, of the need to acknowledge one's faults and to live according to the Holy Spirit, to be a man of true love and of wisdom, to appreciate properly the differences between men and women, to pursue holiness, and to make a difference in the world. Not preachy but direct, Father Richards challenges men to be strong, without putting on a mask of false strength or machismo. He calls men to admit their weaknesses and limitations, while urging them to find strength in faith and genuine love to overcome their sins and faults.

    Although a celibate priest, he minces no words when it comes to the place of sexuality--for the unmarried man as well as for the married man. He shows that true manliness is not opposed to love but thrives on it. Father Richards stresses that a relationship with Christ reveals the meaning of a man's life and his identity as a man. He inspires men to become the true heroes they long to be--men of authentic courage, compassion and integrity. This is a highly readable book for men by a man who knows how to talk to men about the things that matter most.

    Behold the Man: A Catholic Vision of Male Spirituality

    Behold the Man: A Catholic Vision of Male Spirituality
    Burke-Sivers, Harold
    $17.95

    Lucid and inspiring, Behold the Man is a unique exploration of Catholic spirituality for men. Much of the literature written for Catholic men focuses on topical issues such as fatherhood and sexuality. While this book does not exclude these subjects, it is the first to present a comprehensive picture of Catholic male spirituality.

    What is authentic male Catholic spirituality? What distinguishes it from Protestant male spirituality? How does masculine spirituality complement feminine spirituality? These questions and many more are answered in this book.

    Drawing from Scripture and Church teaching, the author roots Catholic male spirituality in a covenant relationship with God and the cross of Jesus Christ. He demonstrates that when a man embraces the cross he is truly able to be himself--the man that God created and calls him to be. Behold the Man can deepen a man's experience of Christ and help him to know the Lord more intimately.

    Woznick, Bear
    $18.95
    Jesus stands on the road beside you now and says, "Where are you going?" Are you ready to enter into Deep Adventure? Are you ready to take up your cross and follow him? Are you ready to let virtue propel you into the wild adventure of God's will? Are you ready to walk the Way of Heroic Virtue?

    Host of EWTN's "Deep Adventure Radio," and two-time Masters World Champion Surfer, Bear Woznick is the Adventure Guide for Deep Adventure Quest Retreats, where people step out of their comfort zone and into the danger zone of God's will. In Deep Adventure: The Way of Heroic Virtue, Bear shares his real-life adventures as a way to challenge you to go deeper with God and live a life of virtue. Pulse-pounding stories of ocean rescues, huge waves and deadly encounters with sharks show us that when people abandon themselves to God, they do not become some soft, pastel version of themselves. On the contrary, a life lived in pursuit of God's will is the boldest, most rewarding way possible to live. If you're tired of being spoon-fed the message that you just need to be "nicer," this book is for you.

    You know deep inside that you are meant for more. You feel the call to be valiant and heroic for your loved ones and for the world. What you seek is profound, but you want a clearer goal and the means to accomplish that. Join us on this quest. Abandoning yourself to God's will takes every ounce of your courage and dedication. You will be tested, but Jesus is the one calling and he will empower you in ways you've never even imagined.

    Man of God: Lessons for Young Men about Life, Sex, Friendship, Vocation, and Loving with the Heart of Christ

    Man of God: Lessons for Young Men about Life, Sex, Friendship, Vocation, and Loving with the Heart of Christ
    Ehrman, Father Terence P
    $15.95
    Christian men, beware: the world wants you for its own. It wants you to choose lust over love, porn over prayer, and the idols of materialism, entertainment, and the flesh over the icons of Christ, his mother, and the saints. It's tempting--and easy--to be a Man of the World. In his ministry at a major university, Fr. Terence Ehrman has seen and heard it all, helping many young men to deal with the lies and temptations that the world throws their way. And he has a challenge for them--and for you: Be a Man of God instead. In Man of God: Lessons to Young Men About Life, Sex, Friendship, Vocation, and Loving with the Heart of Christ, Fr. Ehrman draws on his experiences counseling men who are struggling to live in the world but not be of the world. In the form of emails written to a former student, he offers a plan for ongoing conversion that is both wise and practical, high-minded yet real. Man of God is holy spiritual direction for all men who want to master themselves and be transformed from within; firm and loving guidance to help you reject the world and choose the Kingdom.

    Man Your Post: Learning to Lead Like St. Joseph

    Man Your Post: Learning to Lead Like St. Joseph
    Daunt, Duane
    $24.95
    In a generation plagued by fatherlessness, fear, and indecision, men need a mentor.

    They need a man who models masculine strength and understands his God-given duty to lay down his life for his family, to provide for their every need, to protect them, to exemplify a life of virtue.

    St. Joseph is that man.

    Man Your Post: Learning to Lead like St. Joseph is a mission entrusted to you by a company of Catholic men who have faced challenges and found strength through the intercession of the head of the Holy Family, the man who provided for Jesus and Mary during their earthly lives and protected them on harrowing journeys as they fled from danger and battled the forces of this world.

    By embarking on a tour of the Litany of St. Joseph, each chapter explores the power and freedom virtue brings to the lives of ordinary men trying to lead their families to heaven, virtues like justice, chastity, prudence, fortitude, faithfulness, and others.

    Included are powerful testimonies and reflections from:

  • a five-time Major League Baseball All-star
  • a priest
  • a worship leader
  • a family physician
  • a marriage and family counselor
  • a New York Times Bestselling Author
  • and other Catholic leaders, husbands, and fathers
  • With a foreword by Dr. Scott Hahn, Man Your Post is an invitation to join your band of brothers as you carry out the mission God has entrusted to you.

    Answer the call. Join the mission. Man your post.

    Manual for Men

    Manual for Men
    Olmsted, Thomas J
    $29.95
    Manual for Men is for men who are in the arena, warriors for Christ and His Church. It is for those men who battle daily for their souls and for their family. It is often a struggle to shed the sins and vices the world offers men, but it's a battle we must fight and win.

    In Part I, Bishop Thomas Olmsted calls for Catholic men to step up and "into the breach" in service to God, their families, parishes, and wider communities. In the course of his exhortation, Olmsted unveils:

    - How being a Christian man is far more than physical prowess or worldly power
    - Why the world and the Church desperately need men--real men--to fight for them in spiritual combat
    - The vital importance of prayer and the sacraments in the life of every man
    - Why fatherhood, fully understood, is so crucial for every man
    - The value of devotion to a patron saint (complete with 10 manly suggestions)
    - Most importantly, how men have the perfect model of man in Jesus Christ, and how we can follow his example.

    In Part II, Cook presents a treasure trove of prayers, church teachings, and writings from the saints that serve as a tremendous source of inspiration for men seeking to become better men of God. It is at once an essential guide and a profound book of prayers designed specifically for men.

    Now, perhaps more than ever, men need to be men. But what it means to be a man has been twisted into a pale and mangled image of true manhood. Manual for Men serves as a field guide and instruction manual for those husbands, fathers, sons and brothers who would become real men of God-- men who protect, physically and spiritually, those entrusted to them; men who sacrifice, pray, fight, love, and live by the example of Christ.

    There is a battle for our souls, our families, our world, and Our Lord calls us men to fight. Are you ready to answer the call? Will you accept Bishop Olmsted's plea to "engage in the battle that is raging around you"?

    No Apologies: Why Civilization Depends on the Strength of Men

    No Apologies: Why Civilization Depends on the Strength of Men
    $29.99
    No more apologies for being a man! Best-selling social commentator Anthony Esolen draws on timeless wisdom to defend the masculine virtues of strength, drive, ambition, and determination in building and upholding civilization itself.

    This is a book that should not have to be written. Its purpose is to return to men a sense of their worth as men and to give to boys the noble aim of manliness, an aim which is their due by right.

    One of the most courageous and penetrating writers of our time, Anthony Esolen shows that men and women would both be happier if men came to a just appraisal of their worth. The manhood he praises does not boast or swagger, but it appreciates its powers. It is reluctant to hurt, but it does not cringe or cower.

    The whole of civilization rests on the shoulders of men who have done work that most people would not do--and that the physically weaker sex could not have done. And though the masculine mystique is about more than physical force, the differences between the sexes--manifold and profound--are all related in some way to that one, the easiest difference to see and the hardest to deny.

    The feminist who mindlessly asserts that "a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle" takes her comfortable world--including the bicycle--for granted. And she betrays her lovelessness and ingratitude. Worse, she poisons the minds and hearts of boys with her talk of "toxic masculinity."

    No Apologies, with its compelling vision of a strong and effective manhood, reminds men that they have powers as men, and that those powers must be used for the common good, for everyone--men, women, and children all.

    Of Men and Mary: How Six Men Won the Greatest Battle of Their Lives

    Of Men and Mary: How Six Men Won the Greatest Battle of Their Lives
    Watkins, Christine Anne
    $16.95

    Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, calls this book, "Anointed!", Exorcist Fr. Gary Thomas, subject of the movie, "The Rite," says, "OF MEN AND MARY is superb. The six life testimonies contained within it are miraculous, heroic, and truly inspiring." Certain books as this come along that have the power "to transform lives, to free people from darkness," claims Br. Daniel Maria Klimek, T.O.R. "I plan to share this tremendous work with many through the years."

    Powerful in the spirit, OF MEN AND MARY also delivers tasty doses of pure entertainment. You will find yourself inspired by a murderer, a sweet lamb who lost it all, and a man who literally died--and then came back to life. You will suddenly root for a football player tackled by the Blessed Mother, a man caught up in illicit sexual liaisons, and a man whose marriage was as good as dead.

    While OF MEN AND MARY may be about six males, it is for everyone, because it is also a book about a woman. In the heat of the fiercest of spiritual battles, when all seemed lost and these men were left with nothing to stand on but stormy seas, they were given a lifeboat. That lifeboat--that woman--is the Blessed Virgin Mary. She is the boat of safety for all of us, the surest and safest passage to the heart of her Son. She is our victory and sweet reassurance that God's plan is infinitely better than our own; and she is our challenge to follow her Son, no matter the cost, no matter how fierce the battle. Read the stories of these brave men, and you will inevitably come away with a desire to climb in the boat with them and sail safely home.

    Still Amidst the Storm: A Family Man?s Search for Peace in an Anxious World

    Still Amidst the Storm: A Family Man?s Search for Peace in an Anxious World
    Gallagher, Conor
    $12.95
    "Peace! Be still!" Mark 4:39

    The apostles are trapped in a mighty storm, their fishing boat on the brink of capsizing. . . . And Jesus slept. This confused, scared, and even angered the apostles, who could not fight back the storm. But as always, Christ is our model.

    In these modern times, we often find ourselves adrift in a storm of stress, anxiety, and chronic busy-ness. We all suffer from it. In these moments, it's easy to react like the apostles. To panic, to become angry, to be frightened.

    But like Christ, we should strive to be still amidst the storm. Here, Conor Gallagher (as a father of 12, no stranger to life's chaos) helps you reflect upon and cultivate three remedies to the stress of modern life:

  • encountering God in the present moment which requires of a stillness of mind, to remain in the moment instead of fretting over past mistakes or future anxieties
  • listening to the voice of God, which can only be heard by blocking out the relentless noise of the world and calming our increasingly restless souls
  • resting in serene stillness by resisting the stir-crazy spirit of the world and rejecting busy-ness for busy-ness sake

  • In a world that constantly bombards us with noise, this little book offers a wealth of practical advice and real-world guidance on how to cut out stress, anxiety, and worry so that we may rest in the Lord and hear his voice, so that we may be Still Amidst the Storm.

    Three Marks of Manhood

    Three Marks of Manhood
    $17.95
    The time has come for Catholic men to take up their God- ordained role as priest, prophet, and king of their families. In The Three Marks of Manhood, author and psychologist G. C. Dilsaver shows you how to do this by wielding the three staffs of patriarchy: the Scepter of authority and self-discipline, the Crosier of spiritual stewardship, and the Cross of redemptive suffering.   This familial headship to which God calls Christian patriarchs is not the old pagan notion of brute dominance over wife and children, but rather a loving authority that is unequivocal yet self-sacrificial just like Christ's. Indeed, it is only by imitating Our Lord's headship over His Church that men can lead their families to become what God intended, and empower them to resist the threats of secular culture.   The Three Marks of Manhood is a bold and wise book that will show both husbands and wives the way to greater virtue and happiness. Read it and learn how to build a strong and lasting marriage, raise children to become faithful men and women of God, and foster an authentic Catholic culture in your home.
