Beheading Hydra: A Radical Plan for Christians in an Atheistic Age

Beheading Hydra: A Radical Plan for Christians in an Atheistic Age
Longenecker, Fr Dwight
$18.95

Never before has humanity existed in a culture that rejects belief in a transcendent power. Previous cultures — even when rent by bitter disagreements — shared a common belief that a greater force stood above the material realm. But when one side acknowledges an ultimate source of truth while the other side denies it, debate is dead, and mutual understanding is impossible.

So claims Fr. Dwight Longenecker in his most captivating book yet, Beheading Hydra. Longenecker shows how, like the mythical serpentine beast with myriad writhing and venomous heads, atheism manifests itself today through sixteen “isms” that cloak the actions of the antichrist, who seethes with pure hatred of God and His truth.

Because any good battle plan calls for a thorough knowledge of the enemy, Fr. Longenecker boldly exposes the philosophies behind scientism, materialism, utilitarianism, sentimental humanitarianism, and more, explaining how they became the core assumptions of our culture and how they are, in turn, corrupting the politics and power structures of the world. 

Beheading Hydra brilliantly catalogs the alluring and seductive deceptions of each ism to help you see how they are corroding the very foundations of Western civilization and entrapping countless faithful Christians. 

Best of all, the book lays out a plan of action to behead the Hydra that calls for neither direct conflict nor even dialogue, but creative subversion. You’ll discover what this means along with the powerful and practical actions you and your friends can take now. You’ll also learn how to acquire the grace needed to see clearly the problem — and the solutions. 

It is ordinary men and women who become extraordinary heroes in this battle against Satan, explains Fr. Longenecker. Only by the light of our lives will we defeat this darkness. Debate and dialogue are now pointless. Our lives are our only remaining argument.

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.

    Complete Imitation of Christ

    Complete Imitation of Christ
    À Kempis, Thomas
    $29.99

    Published in over 6,000 editions before the year 1900, The Imitation of Christ has been more widely read than any other book in human history except the Bible itself. It has been called "the most influential work in Christian literature," "a landmark in the history of the human mind," and "the fifth gospel."

    Now, and for the first time, comes an exhaustive edition of this classic work, a work that is bound to become a classic in its own right. Fr. John-Julian introduces Kempis and his Imitation in ways that will shock many who have read the book before. For example, Protestant devotees to the book may be astounded to discover that Thomas was not only a Roman Catholic but an ardent traditionalist contemplative monk as well. And devoted Catholic readers may be amazed to discover that he was a radical moral reformer and part of a group twice formally charged with heresy. Notes and introductions to every aspect of The Imitation open the meaning of this classic to the next generation of readers.

    Fearless: Conquer Your Demons and Love with Abandon

    Fearless: Conquer Your Demons and Love with Abandon
    $16.95
    What are the sources of anxiety, stress, and fear you experience in your life? Popular Catholic speaker and author Sonja Corbitt believes that these often-paralyzing emotions are the direct result of our everyday battles against sin and temptation. In Fearless, she equips us with the spiritual tools we need to restore our spiritual well-being.

    The term "spiritual warfare" conjures images of heavenly battles between archangels and demons, but Sonja Corbitt insists that there is a realm of spiritual warfare that is more domestic than it is cosmic--in the trenches of dirty bathrooms, fighting children, irritable spouses, the struggle to stop smoking or overeating, crazy schedules, and overwhelming workloads.

    In her new book, the author of Unleashed takes us deep into scripture and the spiritual practices of the Church in order to show us how to resist the avalanche of temptations that can threaten us and lead to paralyzing anxiety and fear. Through her powerful personal story and teaching, Corbitt shows us how to put on the armor of Christ and learn to live fearlessly, love with abandon, and embrace life with confidence.

    In Unleashed, Corbitt identified the spiritual wounds that reveal themselves through the harmful patterns and relationships in our lives. In Fearless, she offers scriptural tools that help us understand and conquer the demons of sin, Satan, self, and sloth. She helps us recognize the methods the devil uses to keep us enslaved and she immerses us in a profound contemplation of love, which is the only possible weapon against the spirit of fear. In this book you will come to understand

  • the spiritual roots of fear, depression, and anxiety;
  • ways to "abide" in Christ and find freedom from fear;
  • signs of negative spiritual suggestion and influence in your daily life;
  • the deep, personal lies we believe that keep us slaves to fear;
  • specific truths about the limitations of Satan's power and character;
  • the "pieces" of spiritual armor that protect us from fear; and
  • how to rest fully in God's goodness and love.
  • Each chapter contains features that will make it a popular resource for personal and group study: review notes, an invitation to prayer, and a series of probing questions (called God Prompts) that encourage you to explore the content in a deeply personal way. Fearless offers encouragement to those who are anxious or fearful about the future and who seek a spiritual solution.

    Zimak, Gary

    What if I fail this test? What if I lose my job? What if I'm not good enough to go to heaven? For anyone who has ever felt weighed down with worry, Gary Zimak lights the path to freedom.

    Even though the Bible tells us to "be not afraid" but it's next to impossible to follow that advice when faced with the big - and small - "what-ifs" of life.

As Gary says writes, by doing what we can and letting God take it from there, we can start feeling less anxious and more at more at peace today!

    Through biblical examples, prayers, and personal stories, Gary Zimak will help you start the journey from fear to faith as soon as you're ready. From what to pack to who needs to join you on the ride Gary ensures you're prepared for whatever anxiety-inducing situations meet you on your journey.

    Grace of Enough: Pursuing Less and Living More in a Throwaway Culture

    Grace of Enough: Pursuing Less and Living More in a Throwaway Culture
    Stewart, Haley
    $16.95

    Winner of a 2020 Catholic Press Association book award (first place, backlist beauty).


    Do you ever feel caught in an endless cycle of working harder and longer to get more while enjoying life less? The Stewart family did--and they decided to make a radical change. Popular Catholic blogger and podcaster Haley Stewart explains how a year-long internship on a sustainable farm changed her family's life for the better, allowing them to live gospel values more intentionally.

    When Haley Stewart married her bee-keeping sweetheart, Daniel, they dreamed of a life centered on home and family. But as the children arrived and Daniel was forced to work longer hours at a job he liked less and less, they dared to break free from the unending cycle of getting more yet feeling unfufilled. They sold their Florida home and retreated to Texas to live on a farm with a compost toilet and 650 square feet of space for a family of five. Surprisingly, they found that they had never been happier.

    In The Grace of Enough, Stewart shares essential elements of intentional Christian living that her family discovered during that extraordinary year on the farm and that they continue to practice today. You, too, will be inspired to:

  • live simply
  • offer hospitality
  • revive food culture and the family table
  • reconnect with the land
  • nurture community
  • prioritize beauty
  • develop a sense of wonder
  • be intentional about technology
  • seek authentic intimacy
  • center life around home, family, and relationships
  • Drawing from Pope Francis's encyclical on the environment, Laudato Si', Stewart identifies elements of Catholic social teaching that will enhance your life and create a ripple effect of grace to help you overcome the effects of today's "throwaway" culture and experience a deeper satisfaction and stronger faith.

    How I Stayed Catholic at Harvard: Forty Tips for Faithful College Students

    How I Stayed Catholic at Harvard: Forty Tips for Faithful College Students
    Griffin, Aurora
    $16.95

    A Harvard graduate, Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University, and devout Catholic tells you everything you need to know about keeping your faith at a modern university. Drawing on her recent experience, Aurora Griffin shares forty practical tips relating to academics, community, prayer, and service that helped her stay Catholic in college.

    She reminds us that keeping the faith is a conscious decision, reinforced by commitment to daily practices. Aurora's story illustrates that when you decide your faith matters to you, no one can take it away, even in the most secular environmnets and under strong peer pressure. Throughout the book, she shows how being a Catholic in college did not prevent her from having a full college experience, but actually enabled her to make the most of her time at Harvard.

    She encourages students who are about to begin this formative journey, or those now in college, that the most valuable parts of college life--lasting friendships, intellectual growth, and cherished memories--are experienced in a more meaningful way when lived in and through the Catholic faith.

    How to Listen When God is Speaking to You

    How to Listen When God is Speaking to You
    Pacwa, Mitch
    $13.95
    How do we listen to God speak to our hearts, minds, and wills especially above the noise and stress of the modern world? What is the process of discerning God's will? Best-selling author and popular EWTN host Fr. Mitch Pacwa, SJ, tackles these and other questions in this comprehensive book on discernment. He says that first we need to believe in God and his moral laws and make a commitment to please him in all that we do. Then we need to pray so that we can experience the peace that can come only from God.

    Fr. Pacwa draws from St. Ignatius' Spiritual Exercises, using plenty of everyday examples as well as stories from Scripture to help clarify his points. He encourages readers to develop a rich prayer life and says we can learn to listen to God's powerful voice and hear him speaking lovingly to us even when we are suffering in some way.

    Confronts modern-day assumptions that can prevent us from being open to God's will for our lives.

    Emphasizes the many ways we can develop our prayer life to nourish an authentic relationship with the Lord.

    Humility Rules: Saint Benedict's Twelve-Step Guide to Genuine Self-Esteem

    Humility Rules: Saint Benedict's Twelve-Step Guide to Genuine Self-Esteem
    Wetta, J Augustine
    $17.95

    Saint Benedict's fifth-century guide to humility offers the antidote to the epidemic of stress and depression overwhelming modern young adults. But the language of The Rule by Saint Benedict is medieval, and its most passionate advocates are cloistered monks and nuns. How then does this ancient wisdom translate into advice for ordinary people?

    With candor, humor, and a unique approach to classical art, Father Augustine, a high school teacher and coach, breaks down Saint Benedict's method into twelve pithy steps for finding inner peace in a way that can be applied to anyone's life.

    Drawing upon his own life experiences, both before and after becoming a Benedictine monk, the author explains every step, illustrating each chapter with color reproductions of monastic art that he has embellished with comic flourishes. The winsome combination is sure to keep readers from taking themselves too seriously--which is already a first step on the path to humility.

    Imitation of Christ

    Imitation of Christ
    Watkins, James
    $18.95
    After the Bible, The Imitation of Christ is the all-time favorite book of Catholics throughout the world. And of the English editions, none can equal this inspiring translation by Bishop Richard Challoner.

    This book speaks to the soul of every true Christian, reminding us of the fleeting nature of earthly joy as opposed to the eternity of happiness with God.

    The guide of the saints since it first appeared in 1418, it was the sole spiritual reading of St. Therese of Lisieux, who loved it and knew it by heart.

    Fr. Garrigou-Lagrange asserted that the true mysticism of which it speaks is accessible to all, if they are willing to follow the way of humility, the cross, continual prayer, and docility to the Holy Ghost.

    Imitation of Christ (Fr. Knox)

    Imitation of Christ (Fr. Knox)
    Oakley, Michael
    $16.95

    The spiritual classic by a Kempis, the second most widely read spiritual book after the Bible, has had an astonishing impact on the spiritual lives of countless saints, peasants, and popes for centuries. Even today, the soul-searching words of the fifteenth-century cleric Thomas a Kempis continue to resonate, unbounded by time or geography. Drawing on the Bible, the Fathers of the early Church and medieval mysticism, his four-part treatise shrugs off the allure of the material world, blending beauty and bluntness in a supremely spiritual call-to-arms.

    This beautiful translation by Ronald Knox and Michael Oakley is considered by many teachers, writers, and readers to be the best English translation ever, and one that greatly enhances the life-changing insights of Thomas a Kempis. Illustrated.

    "If we could construct a composite picture of all great Christians--Catholic or non-Catholic--of the last five hundred years who found The Imitation substantially beneficial, enlightening, and inspiring, we would need no further proof that familiarity with this great classic is an integral part of a mature spiritual life and even a path to holiness."

    Imitation of Mary: How to Grow in Virtue and Merit God's Grace

    Imitation of Mary: How to Grow in Virtue and Merit God's Grace
    Tran, Fr Quan
    $17.95
    Our Lord is constantly pouring out graces upon mankind, yet only a few ‚"‚€‚" those closest to His heart ‚"‚€‚" know how to receive them. Sadly, countless graces are left unclaimed (likely many by you!) and are thus never allowed to further God's will on earth.

    How different our lives would be if we accessed God's grace more intentionally!

    Thankfully, God in His compassion gave us a perfect model for disposing ourselves to His graces and responding to them: the Blessed Virgin Mary.

    In The Imitation of Mary, Fr. Quan Tran shows you how to imitate the twelve essential qualities of Mary in order to unleash a torrent of graces in your life. He explains that, like any gift, grace must be received, opened, and used. As you learn how, you'll begin to acquire the temperaments, dispositions, and qualities that are most pleasing to God ‚"‚€‚" and you'll serve as a channel of God's grace for others.

    Decluttering became trendy with the 2014 release of Marie Kondo's The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. And while there's no shortage of secular books promoting the practice, Making Room for God is the first book on organization from a Catholic perspective. Self-proclaimed pack rat Mary Elizabeth Sperry will help you make decluttering a prayerful, peace-filled, and soul-expanding experience.

    Popular Catholic speaker and Bible expert Mary Elizabeth Sperry explores the relationship between our stuff and Catholic beliefs about grace, sin, repentance, prayer, and the common good. She boldly affirms the goodness of our stuff and of God's abiding presence in the worldly goods all around us. She also reminds us of how sin can distort our relationships, including the ones we have with our possessions. Through spiritual disciplines--especially prayer, fasting, and almsgiving--we can protect this relationship so that we own our possessions but they don't own us.

    Making Room for God offers an enticing and entertaining approach to decluttering, discipleship, and the spiritual life that makes tidying up seem almost fun. Writing from an unabashedly Catholic perspective and with convincing practicality, Sperry looks at the role of material goods in the life of a follower of Jesus. Each chapter includes humorous and often self-deprecating details of the author's own journey through decluttering to help us believe that we, too, can simplify. Alongside these adventures are Sperry's rich spiritual insights gleaned from extensive knowledge of the Church's tradition and helpful exercises for freeing ourselves from clutter and the temptation to sin it so often harbors.

    Sperry draws liberally from the Bible, liturgy, Fathers of the Church, lives of the saints, and Church teaching--especially that of Pope Francis--as she explores the relationship between our stuff and our spiritual lives. Practical elements offer a step-by-step approach to decluttering living spaces, getting rid of unused and excess items, and limiting future accumulation.

    Mercy in the City: How to Feed the Hungry, Give Drink to the Thirsty, Visit the Imprisoned, and Keep Your Day Job

    Mercy in the City: How to Feed the Hungry, Give Drink to the Thirsty, Visit the Imprisoned, and Keep Your Day Job
    Weber, Kerry
    $13.95
    When Jesus asked us to feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, and visit the imprisoned, he didn't mean it literally, right? Kerry Weber, a modern, young, single woman in New York City sets out to see if she can practice the Corporal Works of Mercy in an authentic, personal, meaningful manner while maintaining a full, robust, regular life. Weber, a lay Catholic, explores the Works of Mercy in the real world, with a gut-level honesty and transparency that people of urban, country, and suburban locales alike can relate to. Mercy in the City is for anyone who is struggling to live in a meaningful, merciful way amid the pressures of "real life."
    For those who feel they are already overscheduled and too busy, for those who assume that they are not "religious enough" to practice the Works of Mercy, for those who worry that they are alone in their efforts to live an authentic life, Mercy in the City proves that by living as people for others, we learn to connect as people of faith.

    Other Side of Beauty: Embracing God's Vision for Love and True Worth

    Other Side of Beauty: Embracing God's Vision for Love and True Worth
    Darrow, Leah
    $16.99

    "Leah Darrow uses her experience in the beauty industry to help the women of our culture see what true beauty looks like." --Jennifer Fulwiler, host of The Jennifer Fulwiler Show and author of Something Other than God

    Do you feel like you're never good enough? Like you should be living a more Instagram-worthy life? Are you exhausted by the impossible quest for physical beauty but still yearn for the validation of being chosen, valued, and deemed beautiful?

    Drawing on her experience on America's Next Top Model and her work as a fashion model, Leah Darrow exposes the lies we are told about our worth being tied to our appearance and instead invites us to look again at the real meaning of beauty. She shows how we can reclaim true and lasting beauty--the kind that doesn't depend on self-doubt, exploitation, or comparison--when we reflect God's glory and embrace our value as he made us to be: strong, brave, and free. Only when we learn to see ourselves as God does can we leave behind our culture's definitions and demands and find joy in The Other Side of Beauty.
