Everything You Need to Know about Abortion for Teens

Everything You Need to Know about Abortion for Teens
Morana, Janet
$18.95
In the United States and around the world, women and girls are told they need legal access to abortion to be successful and liberated. Everywhere they turn, today's youth are bombarded with the pervasive message that abortion is normal, healthy, and even good.

These dangerous lies are exposed for what they are in Everything You Need to Know About Abortion - For Teens. Janet Morana, a thirty-year veteran of the pro-life movement, with a direct but compassionate tone, introduces readers to the unborn child and to the brutal methods used to kill this most innocent victim. Her impactful and practical message, forged and sharpened through decades of meticulous research and passionate service on the frontlines, conveys some of the most important but often overlooked truths about this issue that defines our times, including:

  • a detailed look at the development of the unborn baby, showing how science makes evident the humanity of these children;
  • the risks of taking contraception that pharmaceutical giants try to hide;
  • a sweeping historical review of the legal battle over abortion in the United States and the dishonest tactics used by pro-abortion activists and lawyers;
  • the hijacking of language and weaponization of euphemisms to confuse young women;
  • the harmful psychological effects abortion has on men and women, as well as the physical dangers abortion procedures can have on women;
  • the personal story of Janet's friend, Norma McCorvey ("Roe" in Roe v. Wade), who became an avid supporter of the pro-life movement late in her life.
  • Perhaps most powerfully, Janet shares heart-wrenching testimonials from women who have made the choice to abort their children, taking readers where few have gone: into the hearts of so many who live with the pain of regret.
    Built upon the foundation of every child being made in the image of God, Janet appeals to our Christian faith but also just as strongly to human reason, science, legal arguments, and personal testimonies to teach young people about the tragedy of abortion. Still more, she champions the virtue of chastity and shows what power and happiness can flow from a life lived in purity to our vocation.

    Includes an appendix of pro-life resources and organizations spread throughout the country who fight valiantly against abortion and offer counseling support and healing to women (and men) who have been touched by the tragedy of abortion.

    John Paul II on the Vulnerable

    John Paul II on the Vulnerable
    Tranzillo, Jeffrey
    $34.95

    Pope John Paul II was a great defender of truly vulnerable human beings throughout his life, affirming their personhood consistently and powerfully. In John Paul II on the Vulnerable, Jeffrey Tranzillo provides a lucid introduction to John Paul II's philosophical and theological understanding of the human person. Unlike other writings on the topic, Tranzillo's explicit aim is to highlight an aspect of John Paul's work that has been largely neglected until now. He shows convincingly that John Paul's seminal reflections on the human being as a personal agent progressed over time to include human beings at even the most vulnerable stages of development or decline. With this advance in thought, the pontiff began to declare eloquently that the vulnerable are capable of contributing to and enriching the human community through their activity.

    An engaging overview of John Paul II's life, thought, and work introduces the book and provides readers with helpful background material. It shows that John Paul's interest in, and lofty regard for, the human person is rooted in his strong Catholic faith and in the extraordinary life experiences that he interpreted in its light. Following this is an examination of his principal works on the human person, emphasizing their implications for vulnerable human beings as persons and actors. Tranzillo considers this theme in the light of selected Christological texts of John Paul II and then reflects on John Paul's portrayal of the vulnerable in his social encyclicals and Evangelium Vitae. A final chapter develops the anthropological underpinnings of John Paul's thought on the radically vulnerable and their personal agency.

    ABOUT THE AUTHOR:


    Jeffrey Tranzillo received his Ph.D. in systematic theology from the Catholic University of America and has taught at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

    PRAISE FOR THE BOOK:


    "This is a masterful work--one of the very best books I have read exploring the thought of John Paul II. Jeffrey Tranzillo provides a compelling and theologically rich account of John Paul II's Christian anthropology, showing how it grounds his understanding of the inalienable dignity of every human being, particularly the vulnerable. Elements of John Paul II's papacy may fade with time, but this extraordinary book keeps the pope's enduring philosophical and theological insights glowingly alive."-- Thomas G. Guarino, Professor of Systematic Theology, Seton Hall University

    Love that Satisfies

    Love that Satisfies
    West, Christopher
    $19.95
    Building on the legacy of Pope John Paul II, it is significant that the first encyclical letter of Pope Benedict XVI is dedicated to the topic God is Love. The Holy Father demonstrates that it is agape, the self-sacrificial love of God that empowers romantic love, eros, with life-giving and meaningful existence. In The Love That Satisfies, Christopher West draws from the Pope s letter a series of insightful and inspiring reflections on the nature of eros, agape, and the relationship between the two. He shows that it is through recognizing and embracing the beauty of God s self-sacrificial love that a person is able to truly be satisfied. In uniting the love of God to the love of spouse, the nuptial bond is fulfilled. Perhaps even more profound is the reality that God and the Bridegroom of the Church has a personal love for his Bride that may certainly be called eros (Benedict XVI, Deus Caritas Est, n. 9).

    Theology of the Body for Beginners REVS
    West, Christopher
    $12.99
    Broken families, abortion, AIDS, Internet pornography, sexual abuse scandals, homosexual marriage, our Church and our world are in the midst of a profound sexual crisis. Is there a way out? For such a time as this have we been given Pope John Paul IIs Theology of the Body. Based on the words of Jesus, John Paul II's famous reflections on the body and sex take us to the root of the modern crisis and chart the path to an authentic sexual liberation. Yet the Pope's dense scholarship often intimidates the average person. In his book, Theology of the Body Explained, Christopher West offered a more detailed, six-hundred page commentary on John Paul II's Theology of the Body. Here, he provides a short and popular summary of the Pope's revolutionary teaching. What is the meaning of life? Why did God create us male and female? Why is there evil in the world and how do we overcome it? How do we attain true happiness on earth? What kind of joys await us in heaven? How can we experience the love we long for in the depth of our hearts? The first edition of Theology of the Body for Beginners (2004) quickly became an international best-seller. This freshly revised and expanded edition is based on Dr. Michael Waldsteins much improved translation of John Paul IIs catechesis. New for this edition: All quotations have been updated with the new translation. Key insights discovered through Dr. Waldstein's access to the John Paul II archives have been incorporated. The outline of the text has been substantially reorganized to reflect the newly discovered outline of John Paul's original manuscript. John Paul's hidden and previously untranslated addresses are summarized.
