Evangelical Catholicism (PAPER): Deep Reform in the 21st-Century Church

Evangelical Catholicism (PAPER): Deep Reform in the 21st-Century Church
Weigel, George
$16.99

The Catholic Church is on the threshold of a bold new era in its two-thousand year history. As the curtain comes down on the Church defined by the 16th-century Counter-Reformation, the curtain is rising on the Evangelical Catholicism of the third millennium: a way of being Catholic that comes from over a century of Catholic reform; a mission-centered renewal honed by the Second Vatican Council and given compelling expression by Blessed John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI.

 

The Gospel-centered Evangelical Catholicism of the future will send all the people of the Church into mission territory every day -- a territory increasingly defined in the West by spiritual boredom and aggressive secularism. Confronting both these cultural challenges and the shadows cast by recent Catholic history, Evangelical Catholicism unapologetically proclaims the Gospel of Jesus Christ as the truth of the world. It also molds disciples who witness to faith, hope, and love by the quality of their lives and the nobility of their aspirations. Thus the Catholicism of the 21st century and beyond will be a culture-forming counterculture, offering all men and women of good will a deeply humane alternative to the soul-stifling self-absorption of postmodernity.

 

Drawing on thirty years of experience throughout the Catholic world, from its humblest parishes to its highest levels of authority, George Weigel proposes a deepening of faith-based and mission-driven Catholic reform that touches every facet of Catholic life -- from the episcopate and the papacy to the priesthood and the consecrated life; from the renewal of the lay vocation in the world to the redefinition of the Church's engagement with public life; from the liturgy to the Church's intellectual life. Lay Catholics and clergy alike should welcome the challenge of this unique moment in the Church's history, Weigel urges. Mediocrity is not an option, and all Catholics, no matter what their station in life, are called to live the evangelical vocation into which they were baptized: without compromise, but with the joy, courage, and confidence that comes from living this side of the Resurrection.

What Matters Most: Empowering Young Catholics for Life's Big Decisions

What Matters Most: Empowering Young Catholics for Life's Big Decisions
Delorenzo, Leonard J
$16.95
What if we taught young people that they can measure success by how they follow Christ rather than by how much money they make or where they go to college?

In What Matters Most, University of Notre Dame theology professor Leonard J. DeLorenzo urges youth ministers, teachers, and parents to help young people redefine success in light of their call to discipleship--completely saying yes to God.

In Luke's account of the Annunciation, Mary offers a true model of discipleship for young people to follow. Her example will empower them to make choices about how to live their lives as a courageous yes to God in everything they choose--just as she did.

DeLorenzo, who served as the long-time director of Notre Dame Vision--a program designed to help young Catholics find their true calling as disciples of Jesus--shows how Mary exhibited four habits that will guide young people to make important life decisions:

  • Listen carefully and practice patience.
  • Remember who we are and what we value most.
  • Respond with compassion to choices we face.
  • Embrace sacrifice for the sake of love.

  • DeLorenzo includes personal stories from his experience as a father and working with youth and young adults with spiritual wisdom to equip teachers, mentors, pastoral ministers, and parents to reexamine the way they encourage and help form young Catholics approaching significant life choices such as college and jobs. He presents ways to remedy spiritual deficits in these young people created by cultural realities such as the fast pace of tech-driven lives and the looming pressure to succeed with worldly accomplishments.

    Blane, Hugh
    $18.95

    In the world of work, the single greatest asset of successful individuals, teams, and organizations is their mindset--what happens in between their ears.

    • Be exemplars of innovation, growth, and positive mindsets.
    • Cascade excellence throughout their organizations.

       

      You may have employees with all the talent in the world, but you'll never achieve remarkable results until you change your employees' mindset. 7 Principles of Transformational Leadership will help you convert your human potential into accelerated business results.

    Becoming the Best: Build a World-Class Organization Through Values-Based Leadership

    Becoming the Best: Build a World-Class Organization Through Values-Based Leadership
    Kraemer, Harry M
    $28.00

    What does it mean in practice to be a values-based leader? When faced with real situations, how can you be your best self and create best teams--while also being a best partner with customers and vendors, a best investment for your stakeholders, and a best citizen making a difference in the world? It's a tall order, but these are the expectations for world-class organizations today.

    In his bestselling book From Values to Action, Harry Kraemer showed how self-reflection, balance, true self-confidence, and genuine humility are the traits of today's most effective leaders. In Becoming the Best, his highly anticipated follow-up, Kraemer reveals how, in practical terms, anyone can apply these principles to become a values-based leader and to help create values-based organizations.

    Drawing on his own experiences as the former CEO and chairman of Baxter International, as well as those of other notable leaders and organizations, Kraemer lays out a pathway for understanding the principles and putting them into practice, showing specifically, how to:

    • Use self-reflection to become your "best self" as you lead yourself and others more effectively
    • Create a "best team" that understands and appreciates what they're doing, and why
    • Forge "best partnerships" through win/win collaboration with vendors and customers that enhance the end user's experience Support the mission, vision, and values of the organization to generate returns that distinguish a "best investment"
    • Make a difference in the world beyond the organization by becoming a "best citizen"

    Powerful case studies from Campbell's Soup, Ernst & Young, Target, Northern Trust, and many others demonstrate the four principles of values-based leadership in action and show how thinking beyond the corporation can trigger positive outcomes for both the company and the world.

    Regardless of level or job title, individuals can make a difference in their organization and beyond by embodying the essential traits of a great leader. Becoming the Best offers a definitive, actionable guide to show anyone how to apply in practice the principles of values-based leadership personally and professionally, making it an indispensable manual for the new wave of better leaders.

    All of Harry's proceeds from the book sales are donated to the One Acre Fund in Africa.

    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.

    Bully of Asia: Why China's Dream is the New Threat to World Order

    Bully of Asia: Why China's Dream is the New Threat to World Order
    Mosher, Steven W
    $28.99

    The Once and Future Hegemon

     

    In a world bristling with dangers, only one enemy poses a truly mortal challenge to the United States and the peaceful and prosperous world that America guarantees. That enemy is China, a country

     

    -that invented totalitarianism thousands of years ago

     

    -whose economic power rivals our own

     

    -that believes its superior race and culture give it the right to universal deference

     

    -that teaches its people to hate America for standing in the way of achieving its narcissistic "dream" of world domination

     

    -that believes in its manifest destiny to usher in the World of Great Harmony

     

    -which publishes maps showing the exact extent of the nuclear destruction it could rain down on the United States

     

    Steven Mosher exposes the resurgent aspirations of the would-be hegemon--and the roots of China's will to domination in its five-thousand-year history of ruthless conquest and assimilation of other nations, brutal repression of its own people, and belligerence toward any civilization that challenges its claim to superiority.

     

    The naïve idealism of our "China hands" has lulled America into a fool's dream of "engagement" with the People's Republic of China and its "peaceful evolution" toward democracy and freedom. Wishful thinking, says Mosher, has blinded us to the danger we face and left the world vulnerable to China's overweening ambitions.

     

    Mosher knows China as few Westerners do. Having exposed as a visiting graduate student the monstrous practice of forced abortions, he became the target of the regime's crushing retaliation. His encyclopedic grasp of China's history and its present-day politics, his astute insights, and his bracing realism are the perfect antidote for our dangerous confusion about the Bully of Asia.

    Crossing the Tiber: Evangelical Protestant Discover the Historical Church

    Crossing the Tiber: Evangelical Protestant Discover the Historical Church
    Ray, Steve
    $18.95
    Stephen K. Ray was raised in a devout, loving Baptist family. His father was a deacon and led Bible studies. Steve himself was very involved in the Baptist Church as a teacher of Biblical studies, and he lectured on a wide range of topics. When a best friend, an Evangelical pastor, converted to the Catholic Church, Steve and his wife Janet decided to investigate the claims of the Catholic Church, taking a thrilling journey back in time that would eventually change their lives forever. After hundreds of hours studying the Bible and the writings of the early Church, they were convinced that the Roman Catholic Church was the Church founded by Christ, and they were received into the Church on Pentecost Sunday in 1994. In this book, with no rancor toward his Evangelical roots, Ray shares with the reader their exhilarating discoveries. He traces their initial hostility toward the Catholic Church, their passionate research and the discovery of the historical Church, quietly waiting to be rediscovered. He convincingly lays out the issues that carried them over the "uncrossable chasm" into the Catholic Church. Thoroughly documented with over 400 footnotes, Crossing the Tiber contains an extensive compilation of biblical and patristic quotations and commentary on the issues of Baptism and the Eucharist, as well as a thorough analysis of Sola Scriptura and Tradition. Ray takes you back to the first four centuries of the Church to discover the early Church - was it like today's Protestantism in theology and practice, or was it Catholic? Discover the unbiblical and unhistorical nature of the "Bible-only" argument. Discover the uniform consistency of the Catholic teaching on Baptism and the Eucharistfrom Scriptures and the Church Fathers.

    Divine Plan: John Paul II, Ronald Reagan, and the Dramatic End of the Cold War

    Divine Plan: John Paul II, Ronald Reagan, and the Dramatic End of the Cold War
    Orlando, Robert
    $27.95

    "John Paul II and Ronald Reagan both understood that they were preserved through this suffering for a high purpose.

    And I don't think you'll understand either one of them without understanding that."

    --Bishop Robert Barron in The Divine Plan

    Just six weeks apart in the spring of 1981, Pope John Paul II and President -Ronald Reagan took bullets from would-be assassins.

    Few realized at the time how close both men came to dying.

    Surviving these near-death experiences created a singular bond between the pope and the president that -historians have failed to appreciate.

    When John Paul II and Reagan met only a year later, they confided to each other a shared conviction: that God had spared their lives for a -reason.

    That reason? To defeat Communism.

    In private, Reagan had a name for this: "The DP"--the Divine Plan.

    * * *

    It has become fashionable to see the collapse of the Soviet empire as inevitable.

    Hardly.

    In this riveting book, bestselling author Paul Kengor and writer--director Robert Orlando show what it took to end the Cold War: leaders who refused to accept that hundreds of -millions must suffer under totalitarian -Communism.

    And no leaders proved more important than the pope and the president.

    Two men who seemed to have little in common developed an extraordinary bond--including a spiritual bond between the Catholic pope and Protestant president. And their shared core convictions drove them to confront Communism.

    To tell the full story of the dramatic closing act of the Cold War, Kengor and Orlando draw on their exhaustive research and exclusive interviews with more than a dozen experts, including well-known historians Douglas Brinkley, H. W. Brands, Anne Applebaum, Stephen Kotkin, John O'Sullivan, and Craig Shirley; the leading biographer of John Paul II, George Weigel; close Reagan advisers Richard V. Allen and James Rosebush; and Cardinal Timothy Dolan and Bishop Robert Barron.

    You can't understand Pope John Paul II and President Ronald Reagan--or how the Cold War came to such a swift and peaceful end--without understanding how much faith they put in the Divine Plan.

    Doing Agile Right: Transformation Without Chaos

    Doing Agile Right: Transformation Without Chaos
    Berez, Steve
    $32.00

    Agile has the power to transform work--but only if it's implemented the right way.

    For decades business leaders have been painfully aware of a huge chasm: They aspire to create nimble, flexible enterprises. But their day-to-day reality is silos, sluggish processes, and stalled innovation. Today, agile is hailed as the essential bridge across this chasm, with the potential to transform a company and catapult it to the head of the pack.

    Not so fast. In this clear-eyed, indispensable book, Bain & Company thought leader Darrell Rigby and his colleagues Sarah Elk and Steve Berez provide a much-needed reality check. They dispel the myths and misconceptions that have accompanied agile's rise to prominence--the idea that it can reshape an organization all at once, for instance, or that it should be used in every function and for all types of work. They illustrate that agile teams can indeed be powerful, making people's jobs more rewarding and turbocharging innovation, but such results are possible only if the method is fully understood and implemented the right way.

    The key, they argue, is balance. Every organization must optimize and tightly control some of its operations, and at the same time innovate. Agile, done well, enables vigorous innovation without sacrificing the efficiency and reliability essential to traditional operations. The authors break down how agile really works, show what not to do, and explain the crucial importance of scaling agile properly in order to reap its full benefit. They then lay out a road map for leading the transition to a truly agile enterprise.

    Agile isn't a goal in itself; it's a means to becoming a high-performance operation. Doing Agile Right is a must-have guide for any company trying to make the transition--or trying to sustain high agility.

    Expect and Experience Miracles

    Expect and Experience Miracles
    Greco, Steve L
    $12.00

    This book, Expect and Experience Miracles, is drawn from one of Steve's presentations to Catholic groups in this country and abroad-one he considers the most important message he's been given to preach to all God's children. The book reflects Steve's grounding in Scripture and authentic desire to serve God by serving others. Before listening to Steve's presentation on expecting and experiencing miracles, I had a passing acquaintance with them, but really didn't consider direct divine interventions an integral part of my life. God has bigger miraculous fish to fry for really dire situations, perilous crises and truly deserving souls. I'm just a middle-aged woman with a good husband and four grown children simply trying to put one spiritual foot in front of the other on the faith journey of life. But, as Steve testifies in this book, miracles aren't just for the "saintly or holy people." Miracles are meant for me and you-and the butcher, baker and candlestick maker, the postal carrier, late night diner fry cook, the star athlete, the computer whiz and the Fortune 500 CEO, the dog-walker and the space lab astronaut. Each and every one of us on God's beautiful blue marble of a planet are recipients of God's miracles. And, as Steve tells us, some of these divine interventions are spectacular and jaw-dropping, while others are sweetly simple, but important at the moment (like making the green light when late for an important meeting). But big, small or medium in scope, each of us can expect and experience miracles if we have open hearts, faith and trust in God. Steve helps us do exactly that.

    Fragility of Order: Catholic Reflections on Turbulent Times

    Fragility of Order: Catholic Reflections on Turbulent Times
    Weigel, George
    $24.95

    George Weigel is one of America's most prominent public intellectuals, a New York Times-bestselling author, the biographer of Pope St. John Paul II, and Senior Vatican Analyst for NBC News. In this collection of essays, he brings thirtyfive years of experience in Washington and Rome to bear on some of the most contested issues of contemporary history and world politics. He analyzes the current civic distress of the United States from a point of view that links culture and morals to politics, and explores the recent turbulence in the Catholic Church.

    The essays cover a wide swath of ground, from the origins of the First World War to the papacy of Pope Francis. Their common denominator is Weigel's conviction that ideas have consequences, for good and ill, and that the deep currents of history flow through culture, which shapes political and economic life in ways not often understood. Many of the essays originated in Weigel's annual William E. Simon Lecture which, since 2001, has become a major intellectual event in Washington, DC.This book is unique in its application of philosophical and theological perspectives by renowned public intellectual to the "surface" issues of history and politics, enabling the reader to "see" current events in a deeper way.

    From Success to Significance: When the Pursuit of Success Isn't Enough

    From Success to Significance: When the Pursuit of Success Isn't Enough
    Reeb, Lloyd
    $16.99

    Success Is Great. But Significance Is Lasting. You've achieved a measure of success in the first half of life, and it's been a thrill. But deep in your heart, you want your second half to count for something far more. Something bigger than you. Significance. You're not alone; you're in "Halftime." You want to discover where your deepest passions intersect with your greatest abilities and harness them to help change the world. But what does significance look like? How do you attain it? What will it cost you? What if you are not yet financially independent? Who can help you make sense out of this stage of life? Lloyd Reeb knows how it is. He's wrestled with the same questions--and found answers. In From Success to Significance, he unfolds a blueprint that has helped thousands of men and women redefine success and infuse their lives with eternal significance. Adapt Reeb's approach to your circumstances and, with God's help, put it in motion. It works, and it will work for you. Discover God's unique purpose for your life. Your talents, your drives, and everything you are will make sense in a new way and have an impact you've never dreamed of. Go ahead, start dreaming. Because significance is within your reach, and it starts by finding the freedom to dream. "Many people measure their success by wealth, recognition, power, and status. There's nothing wrong with those, but if that's all you're focused on, you're missing the boat. Lloyd Reeb shows that if you focus on significance--using your time and talent to serve others--that's when truly meaningful success can come your way."

    From Values to Action: The Four Principles of Values-Based Leadership

    From Values to Action: The Four Principles of Values-Based Leadership
    Kraemer, Harry M
    $27.95

    Silver Medal Winner, Business and Leadership, 2012 Nautilus Book Awards

    Respected former CEO, professor, and speaker examines what it takes to become a values-based leader

    In this highly-anticipated book, Harry Kraemer argues that today's business environment demands values-based leaders who, in "doing the right thing," deliver outstanding and lasting results. The journey to becoming a values-based leader starts with self-reflection. He asks, "If you are not self-reflective, how can you know yourself? If you do not know yourself, how can you lead yourself? If you cannot lead yourself, how can you lead others?" Kraemer identifies self-reflection as the first of four principles that guide leaders to make choices that honor their values and candidly recounts how these principles helped him navigate some of the toughest challenges he faced in his career.

    Get Out Now: Why You Should Pull Your Child from Public School Before It's Too Late

    Get Out Now: Why You Should Pull Your Child from Public School Before It's Too Late
    Farnan, Theresa
    $25.99
    Should we stay or should we go? Millions of parents with children in public schools can't believe they're asking this question. But they are. And you should be asking it too. Almost overnight, America's public schools have become morally toxic. And they are especially poisonous for the hearts and minds of children from religious families of every faith--ordinary families who value traditional morality and plain old common sense. Parents' first duty is to their children--to their intellect, their character, their souls. The facts on the ground point to one conclusion: get out now.

    Halftime: Moving from Success to Significance (Anniversary)
    Buford, Bob P
    $22.99

    Updated and expanded for a new generation of leaders, Bob Buford's bestseller shows you how to make the second half of life more rewarding than the first.

    Are you ready to move into the second half of your life? Bob Buford believes the second half of your life can be better than the first. Much better. But first, you need time to figure out what you want to do with the rest of your life.

    In Halftime, Buford focuses on this important time of transition--the time when, as he says, a person moves beyond the first half of the game of life. It's halftime, a time of revitalization and for catching a new vision for living the second half, the half where life can be lived at its most rewarding. As Buford explains, "My passion is to multiply all that God has given me, and in the process, give it back."

    Features of this newly updated and expanded 20th Anniversary edition include a foreword by Jim Collins, the bestselling author of Good to Great; new questions for reflection or discussion at the end of each chapter; brand new "halftime" stories of men and women enjoying a second half of significance; specific halftime assignments to guide readers into their second-half mission; an essay by Bob on "The Wisdom of Peter Drucker"; a special update from the author on how the halftime movement is growing nationally, and links to outstanding resources.

    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.

    Irony of Modern Catholic History: How the Church Rediscovered Itself and Challenged the Modern World to Reform

    Irony of Modern Catholic History: How the Church Rediscovered Itself and Challenged the Modern World to Reform
    Weigel, George
    $30.00
    A powerful new interpretation of Catholicism's dramatic encounter with modernity, by one of America's leading intellectuals
    Throughout much of the nineteenth century, both secular and Catholic leaders assumed that the Church and the modern world were locked in a battle to the death. The triumph of modernity would not only finish the Church as a consequential player in world history; it would also lead to the death of religious conviction. But today, the Catholic Church is far more vital and consequential than it was 150 years ago. Ironically, in confronting modernity, the Catholic Church rediscovered its evangelical essence. In the process, Catholicism developed intellectual tools capable of rescuing the imperiled modern project.
    A richly rendered, deeply learned, and powerfully argued account of two centuries of profound change in the church and the world, The Irony of Modern Catholic History reveals how Catholicism offers twenty-first century essential truths for our survival and flourishing.

    JFK and the Reagan Revolution: A Secret History of American Prosperity

    JFK and the Reagan Revolution: A Secret History of American Prosperity
    Domitrovic, Brian
    $29.00

    The fascinating, suppressed history of how JFK pioneered supply-side economics.

    John F. Kennedy was the first president since the 1920s to slash tax rates across-the-board, becoming one of the earliest supply-siders. Sadly, today’s Democrats have ignored JFK’s tax-cut legacy and have opted instead for an anti-growth, tax-hiking redistribution program, undermining America’s economy.

    One person who followed JFK’s tax-cut growth model was Ronald Reagan.  This is the never-before-told story of the link between JFK and Ronald Reagan.  This is the secret history of American prosperity.

    JFK realized that high taxes that punished success and fanned class warfare harmed the economy. In the 1950s, when high tax rates prevailed, America endured recessions every two or three years and the ranks of the unemployed swelled. Only in the 1960s did an uninterrupted boom at a high rate of growth (averaging 5 percent per year) drive a tremendous increase in jobs for the long term. The difference was Kennedy’s economic policy, particularly his push for sweeping tax-rate cuts.

    Kennedy was so successful in the ’60s that he directly inspired Ronald Reagan’s tax cut revolution in the 1980s, which rejuvenated the economy and gave us another boom that lasted for two decades.

    Lawrence Kudlow and Brian Domitrovic reveal the secret history of American prosperity by exploring the little-known battles within the Kennedy administration. They show why JFK rejected the advice of his Keynesian advisors, turning instead to the ideas proposed by the non-Keynesians on his team of rivals.   

    We meet a fascinating cast of characters, especially Treasury Secretary Douglas Dillon, a Republican. Dillon’s opponents, such as liberal economists Paul Samuelson, James Tobin, and Walter Heller, fought to maintain the high tax rates—including an astonishing 91% top rate—that were smothering the economy. In a wrenching struggle for the mind of the president, Dillon convinced JFK of the long-term dangers of nosebleed income-tax rates, big spending, and loose money. Ultimately, JFK chose Dillon’s tax cuts and sound-dollar policies and rejected Samuelson and Heller.

    In response to Kennedy’s revolutionary tax cut, the economy soared. But as the 1960s wore on, the departed president’s priorities were undone by the government-expanding and tax-hiking mistakes of Presidents Johnson, Nixon, Ford, and Carter. The resulting recessions and the “stagflation” of the 1970s took the nation off its natural course of growth and prosperity-- until JFK’s true heirs returned to the White House in the Reagan era. 

    Kudlow and Domitrovic make a convincing case that the solutions needed to solve the long economic stagnation of the early twenty-first century are once again the free-market principles of limited government, low tax rates, and a strong dollar. We simply need to embrace the bipartisan wisdom of two great presidents, unleash prosperity, and recover the greatness of America.

    Men and Women Are From Eden- A Study Guide to John Paul II's Theology of the Body
    Healy, Mary
    $14.99
    Maybe you've heard of Pope John Paul II's theology of the body and wondered, vaguely, what it's all about. Maybe you've never heard of it until now and are asking, theology of the what? Maybe you're already familiar with the basics and are ready to incorporate this teaching on sex, love and marriage into your own life.

    Whatever your level of understanding, you're probably ready for some good news about sex in a culture littered with the bad news of divorce, adultery, sexually transmitted disease, heartache and loneliness.

    This guide is designed to help you appropriate the Pope's astonishing message: True, lasting love--that which humanity enjoyed in the beginning, before the Fall--is possible here and now. In nine straightforward lessons, Men and Women Are from Eden introduces the reader to the pope's warm, deeply biblical understanding of God's original plan for men and women, a plan that brings with it healing of mind in regard to sexuality and the body.

    Arroyo, Raymond
    $18.00
    In 1981, a simple nun, using merely her entrepreneurial instincts and $200, launched what would become the world's largest religious media empire in the garage of a Birmingham, Alabama, monastery.

    Raymond Arroyo combines his journalist's objectivity and eye for detail with more than five years of exclusive interviews with Mother Angelica. He traces Mother Angelica's tortured rise to success and exposes for the first time the fierce opposition she faced, both outside and inside of her church.
