Engaging a New Generation: A Vision for Reaching Catholic Teens

Engaging a New Generation: A Vision for Reaching Catholic Teens
Mercadante, Frank
$19.95
Reaching teens has always been a challenge. Add in the swirl of rapidly transforming culture and technology and no wonder today's teens are MIA at most traditional youth ministry offerings.

It s the elephant in the sanctuary today's teens are more likely to look at confirmation as their exit from Catholicism, rather than their initiation into the Faith. Sadly, many never return.

But how do we reach this new breed of teens? The formulas that worked with teens a generation or two ago, are now met with polite indifference.

Today, young people prefer substance over sensation involvement over indulgence. They hunger for authentic relationships. They long for spiritual experiences that are firmly rooted in truth and dignity.

How to Win the Culture War

How to Win the Culture War
Kreeft, Peter
$17.00
The battle lines have been drawn. Many Christians have fallen into the trap of proclaiming "Peace! Peace!" when there is no peace. Hiding their eyes from the pressing issues of the day, they believe that resistance to the prevailing culture is useless. At the same time, other Christians have been too quick to declare war, mistaking battlefield casualties as enemies rather than victims. In How to Win the Culture War Peter Kreeft issues a rousing call to arms. Christians must understand the true nature of the culture war--a war between the culture of life and the culture of death. Kreeft identifies the real enemies facing the church today and maps out key battlefields. He then issues a strategy for engagement and equips Christians with the weapons needed for a successful campaign. Above all, Kreeft assures us that the war can be won--in fact, it will be won. For those who hope in Christ, victory is assured, because good triumphs over evil and life conquers death. Love never gives up. Neither must we.

Jesus' School of Life: Incentives to Discipleship

Jesus' School of Life: Incentives to Discipleship
Schoenborn, Cardinal Christoph
$15.95

In response to the great challenges faced by modern Catholics, Christoph Cardinal Schönborn presents an in-depth formation for intentional disciples of Jesus. His presentation is aimed at demonstrating that the call of Jesus is not an abstract idea but a real way of life, a school of life. Jesus forms his followers in the art of living well, which leads them to true fulfillment both now and in the life to come.

Drawing mainly on Scripture, and the Gospels in particular, the Cardinal shows how the way of conversion begins in a person's life and continues as his path until death. Every step along the way, the disciple is taught to believe, to trust, and to pray by the interior teacher--the Holy Spirit.

The Cardinal traces the path of discipleship through nine key stages: answering the call of Jesus, becoming his disciple, learning to pray, living the Beatitudes, receiving and giving forgiveness, embracing the cross, becoming his witnesses, receiving the Holy Spirit, and passing through death into life. We can walk safely and joyfully along this path if we attend Jesus' school of life and follow in the footsteps of the Master.

Just Whatever: How to Help the Spiritually Indifferent Find Beliefs That Really Matter
Nelson, Matt
$15.95
Jesus-Buddha-Alllah-Sex- God-Tech- Self- Stuff- Catholic- Christian- Spiritual-None

What difference does it make?

Sharing the Faith used to make some people mad because it challenged and clashed with their own strong beliefs. Today it makes a lot of people yawn-because they don't have strong beliefs about anything.

If you find fulfillment in your faith or lifestyle, great- the idea goes- but that doesn't mean it's true for me or anyone else.

In Just Whatever, Matt Nelson takes down the building blocks of religious indifference one by one. He looks at the three different kinds you tend to encounter in your friends and family members-and maybe in yourself!-to see where they come from and why.

In their place he offers a compelling vision of a world in which it matters what you believe, who you worship, and where authentic truth and authority reside

Night of the Confessor: Christian Faith in an Age of Uncertainty

Night of the Confessor: Christian Faith in an Age of Uncertainty
Halik, Tomas
$14.00
Tomás Halík is a wise guide for the post-Christian era, and never more so than in his latest work, a thought-provoking and powerful reflection on the relationship between faith, paradox, change, and resurrection.
As the challenges of cultural secularization and dwindling congregation size confront religious communities across North America and Europe, and the Catholic Church in particular, Tomás Halík is a prophetic voice of hope. He has lived through the political oppression and intolerance of religion that defined Communist Czechoslovakia, and he draws from this experience to remind readers that not only does crisis lead to deeper understanding but also that any living religion is a changing religion. The central messages of Christianity have always seemed impossible, from peace and forgiveness in the face of a harsh world to love and self-sacrifice despite human selfishness to the victory of resurrection through the defeat of the cross. Acceptance of paradox therefore is the way forward, Halík explains. It is a difficult way that offers an unclear immediate future, but it is ultimately the only honest way.

Poverty: Responding Like Jesus

Poverty: Responding Like Jesus
$16.99
The poor will always be with you, Jesus said - but that doesn't mean Christians have ever figured out how to be with the poor.

Pope Francis has emphasized a vision of a "Church that is poor and for the poor." But growing economic inequality continues to spread across the globe. This book takes a fresh look at the role of churches, and individual Christians, in relating to poverty and the poor among them. A strong focus is placed on the biblical and theological roots of the Church's commitment to care for the poor.

At times praised as a virtue and blessed as a condition, poverty easily confuses us, and we are often left doing little to nothing to make a difference with and for the poor. As a social evil and a burden, poverty has elicited many kinds of reactions among the followers of Christ. It is time for Christians to figure out what to do about it.

Contributors include Pope Francis, Pheme Perkins, Sandra M. Schneider, and Thomas Massaro SJ.

Rekindling the Christic Imagination: Theological Meditations for the New Evangelization

Rekindling the Christic Imagination: Theological Meditations for the New Evangelization
Imbelli, Robert P
$19.95

The Second Vatican Council marked the beginning of the New Evangelization. It sought to communicate the Gospel's perennial newness to the contemporary world in a spirit of joy and hope. Yet despite the exhortations of Paul VI and John Paul II, a number of ecclesial and cultural factors deflected the church's evangelical energies, so that the council's radiant Christocentric vision faded in an increasingly polarized church.

In this important new work, Robert Imbelli probes the council's comprehensive Christocentric vision and its evangelical imperative. It maintains that Jesus Christ cannot be separated from his body, the church, and that the Eucharist effects the ongoing intimate communion between Head and members. It is this life-giving communion that the church desires to share with the wider world as the world's truth and salvation. Drawing on the writings of Pope Benedict and the witness of Pope Francis, Imbelli's insights will help transform what is merely notional for the reader into a vivid reality through the lure of beauty. Includes four-color illustrations.

Seven Deadly Sins of Apologetics: Avoiding Common Pitfalls When Explaining and Defending the Faith

Seven Deadly Sins of Apologetics: Avoiding Common Pitfalls When Explaining and Defending the Faith
Brumely, Mark
$12.95
The renaissance of Catholic apologetics has done great good for the Church.

Ordinary Catholics are learning how to defend and explain the Faith- and to share it enthusiastically with others more fluently and confidently than ever.

As an experienced apologist and evangelist, Mark Brumley has seen firsthand what this renaissance has accomplished. But he has also witnessed its dangers and pitfalls; some of which are so serious that, left unchecked, they can undermine all our efforts. When we try to prove too much from reason alone, for example, or when we let prideful desire to win arguments overshadow our goal of communicating God's truth, we run the risk of becoming mediocre -even counter-productive -stewards and messengers of that truth.

In The Seven Deadly Sins of Apologetics, Brumley examines the most common faults that defenders of the Faith must guard against, and shows you how to avoid and overcome them. Read this concise and lively book today and become a more effective apostle
