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.

    Fearless: Conquer Your Demons and Love with Abandon

    Fearless: Conquer Your Demons and Love with Abandon
    Corbitt, Sonja
    $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.

    Gaming and the Heroic Life: A Quest for Holiness in the Virtual World

    Gaming and the Heroic Life: A Quest for Holiness in the Virtual World
    $14.95

    Video games fuel a fundamental human drive for adventure--like the epic quest to slay zombies, a solo voyage to rescue the princess, or setting off with a clan to defeat the final boss.

    The desire to be a hero in your journey is something Bobby Angel can relate to. A lifelong gamer, he was the cohost of the God and Gaming series on YouTube and often appears as a guest on Bearded Blevins's Around the Halo on Twitch. In Gaming and the Heroic Life, Bobby explains that you don't have to just play the role of hero in a game--you can actually pursue a heroic life by the way you engage the virtual world.

    Gaming and the Heroic Life is a map to becoming not only a better gamer but also a better person--one who has a purpose and knows where they fit into the world.

    The book contains three levels:

  • Level One explores why people love games and what games have to do with God.
  • Level Two examines how the Easter eggs of truth, beauty, and goodness in games impact players in much the same way that they impact your relationship with God.
  • Level Three demonstrates how gaming can propel players AFK (away from keyboard) to find purpose and meaning in service to others.
  • Bobby shows where video games intersect with a life of faith in God--how games echo with our call to holiness and how we can respond to that call in both the virtual and real worlds.

    Go Bravely: Becoming the Woman You Were Created to Be

    Go Bravely: Becoming the Woman You Were Created to Be
    Hussem, Emily Wilson
    $13.95
    As a young Christian woman, do you struggle with insecurities and feel bogged down by the pressures and expectations of society? Do you find it challenging to take care of yourself and be a faithful daughter of God?

    Emily Wilson Hussem used to feel the same way. In Go Bravely, the Catholic musician and speaker offers twenty bits of advice that will equip you to tackle your deepest concerns about relationships, self-esteem, and dating while strengthening your faith at the same time.

    "Sometimes even the smallest acts of living out faith require great bravery."

    In Go Bravely, Wilson Hussem offers readers warm and friendly encouragement as she shares her experiences with other young women as their youth minister as well as her own struggles with insecurity, relationships, loving and forgiving herself, and living her faith. You'll feel right at home as she challenges you to be a light in the world while simultaneously offering you easy-to-digest advice on your most pressing questions.

    Fresh off figuring out who she is as a daughter of God, how to cultivate healthy friendships, how to save sex for marriage, and how to develop a prayer life, Wilson Hussem gives you advice about what she learned in the midst of becoming a young woman. Aware of the information overload that young people face today, she shares simple wisdom for bravely living your faith, such as:

  • Always be kind to other women.
  • Work hard at what you love.
  • Recognize God's plan for your life.
  • Remember that nobody is perfect.
  • Cultivate authentic friendships.
  • These are basic ideas, Wilson Hussem says, but taking care of yourself and loving others are easy tenets of our faith to forget. A book that can be read in short snippets or in one sitting, Go Bravely offers you the encouragement and tools you need to live out your Christian faith with purpose and zeal.

    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, 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 environments and under strong peer pressure. Throughout the book, she shows how being 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.

    Aurora 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.

    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 sacred 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 Christ: A Timeless Classic for Contemporary Readers

    Imitation of Christ: A Timeless Classic for Contemporary Readers
    $18.95
    "What would Jesus do?"

    That's the primary question Thomas à Kempis answers in his universally acclaimed work, The Imitation of Christ. In 114 short chapters organized into four simple parts, this handbook on the spiritual life offers guidance on dozens of topics such as resisting temptation, avoiding hasty judgments, putting up with others' faults, remembering God's many blessings, self-surrender, minding our own business, and performing humble works.

    William Creasy succeeds in creating a dramatically different interpretation of The Imitation of Christ by working through its historical, cultural, and linguistic contexts.

    This book inspired the likes of St. Thomas More, St. Ignatius of Loyola, Thérèse of Lisieux, Dorothy Day, and Thomas Merton. Along with such classics as Augustine's Confessions, Teresa of Avila's Interior Castle, and Ignatius's Spiritual Exercises, The Imitation of Christ continues to confront each generation of readers with the perennial truths of the Gospel.

    Self Abandonment to Divine Providence

    Self Abandonment to Divine Providence
    De Caussade, Jean-Pierre
    $28.95
    "I wish to show all that they may lay claim, not to the same distinct favors, but to the same love, the same self-abandonment, the same God . . . and to eminent sanctity. Let us not distress or refuse anyone, or drive any away from eminent perfection." --Fr. De Caussade Written to help those who despair of ever becoming holy, Father De Caussade elucidates in Self-Abandonment to Divine Providence how surrendering our will to God is the key to attaining peace and holiness in this life, and that it is readily available to all people-from beginners to those well advanced in the spiritual life. Father De Caussade's teachings were deeply influenced by St. Francis de Sales, St. John of the Cross, and the Sisters of the Visitation founded by St. Jane Frances de Chantal. These influences are apparent in his explanation that the perfection God expects from us consists mainly in our purifying the innumerable little actions that occur in the course of every day; in our heroic attention to every detail in our lives and humble acceptance of the lot God has chosen for us. This edition of Self Abandonment to Divine Providence includes over 150 letters from Father De Caussade to his spiritual children on the practice of self abandonment. These exchanges provide many profound insights and practical tips for applying the timeless lessons found in this classic guide to achieving holiness.

    Simple Life Changing Prayer

    Simple Life Changing Prayer
    Manney, Jim
    $9.95

    For most people most of the time, prayer is hard. It is especially difficult--not to mention unsatisfying--when people experience it as formal, dry, and repetitious. But what might happen if you discovered a simple prayer that changed all that? What if you discovered a prayer that changed you?

    In A Simple, Life-Changing Prayer, Jim Manney introduces Christians to a 500-year-old form of prayer that dramatically altered his perception of prayer and the way he prayed. The prayer is the examen, which St. Ignatius Loyola developed for the purpose of nurturing a reflective habit of mind that is constantly attuned to God's presence. What makes the prayer so powerful is its capacity to dispel any notion that God is somewhere "up there," detached from our day-to-day tasks and concerns. Instead, the examen leads us into a relationship with a God who desires to be personally caught up in the lives of those whom he created.

    By following five simple yet powerful steps for praying the examen, we can encounter the God who, as Scripture tells us, "is not far from each one of us"--the God whose presence in our lives can make all the difference in the world.

    Travel Guide to Heaven

    Travel Guide to Heaven
    DeStefano, Anthony
    $15.00
    A recent Newsweek poll reports that 76 percent of Americans believe in heaven. Yet even avid believers have difficulty conjuring up more than vague images of halos, harps, and wispy angels in flowing robes. Anthony DeStefano knew there had to be a more complete, meaningful, and comforting vision of what heaven is like, and A Travel Guide to Heaven is the entertaining and enlightening result.

    Using the Bible as his guide, the author notes that heaven is not only a spiritual place, but also a physical place, a fabulous "luxury resort" more sumptuous than any on Earth. The residents are real, their bodies transformed into their most perfect selves--physically, emotionally, and spiritually. By making a spiritual subject immensely physical, the book provides a picture of amazing places to visit, things to do, luxuries for pampering--not to mention deep, abiding joy.

    Combining the clarity and logic of C. S. Lewis with a terrific sense of fun and adventure, DeStefano creates a brilliant, reassuring portrait of heaven, a place that has intrigued and puzzled humankind throughout history. With its clear view of the afterlife, A Travel Guide to Heaven might best be compared to James Van Praagh's Talking to Heaven or Betty J. Eadie's Embraced by the Light in its tremendous message of comfort and reassurance.

    We Need to Talk: God Speaks to a Modern Girl
    Brinkmann, Susan
    $10.99

    When the author decided to return to the Church, she did so kicking and screaming. She had so little faith that God had to open her eyes and heart to her true calling. When God entered Susan Brinkmann's world, he waded into knee-deep piles of sin and daily dealt with her stubborn refusal to like him. And he did something amazing. This is the story of that miracle--not just a little moment, but something huge. He didn't change her. He helped her become who she really was. If you've drifted into complacency, find in We Need to Talk the inspiration to recognize the pull of God's voice and respond.
