THEOLOGY

FaithAndPoliticsFaith and Politics: Selected Writing
Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger

Pope Francis, in his foreword, states that one of the major themes in the thought of Joseph Ratzinger is the relationship between faith and politics: "His first-hand experience of Nazi totalitarianism led him even as a young student to reflect on the limits of obedience to the state for the sake of the liberty of obeying God.” In support of this, he quotes from one of Ratzinger's texts presented in this volume: "The state is not the whole of human existence and does not encompass all human hope." Ratzinger explored various aspects of this subject in books, speeches, and homilies throughout his career and most recently as Pope Benedict XVI.

BeyondOriginalSinBeyond Original Sin: Recovering Humanity's Creative Urge
Diarmuid O'Murchu

The wisdom of paleontology—the study of human origins—is creating a revolution that is likely to shake many inherited Christian beliefs, including the doctrine of Original Sin. The long-held belief in a fundamental flaw finds little support in our ancient human story because we consistently encounter a species with an enormous capacity for exploration, innovation, and creativity. Although this book does not set out to dispense with the notion of Original Sin it makes a compelling case for a different starting point: our fundamental goodness rather than our flawed sinful condition. Just as the Book of Genesis declares all to be good in the eyes of God, why not begin with our human foundational creative urge as the basis for faith and spirituality?

TwoWingsTwo Wings: Integrating Faith and Reason
Douglas Kries, Brian Clayton

The authors explain how believing and reasoning are two human activities that may be integrated to form a complete view of human existence. They take their title from the opening of John Paul II's encyclical Fides et Ratio, which speaks of the human spirit rising on the two wings of faith and reason to stretch toward the truth that is available to all. In the first part of the book, the authors offer a basic encounter with traditional arguments for and against God's existence. They grapple with doubts arising from the question of evil and the discoveries of contemporary natural science. The final chapters take up questions from ethics and politics that impact the way individuals and communities choose to structure their lives.

In addition, the structure of the book allows teachers (both high school and university) to separate out discrete issues for study and discussion.

FAMILY LIFE

TheAbolitionOfWomanThe Abolition of Woman: How Radical Feminism Is Betraying Women
Fiorella Nash
For the majority on both sides of the abortion debate, the idea of a pro-life feminist is the ultimate contradiction in terms. Abortion has become so central to feminist thinking that women who affirm their belief in both women's empowerment and the inalienable right to life can find themselves viewed with suspicion and hostility from both sides. Yet the author of this book is indeed a pro-life feminist, and her analysis of contemporary issues can provide the basis for common ground between those defending human rights.

SaintOscarRomeroSaint Oscar Romero: Pastor, Prophet, Martyr
Kerry Walters

This new biography by Kerry Walters offers an inspiring look at St. Óscar’s life, starting in childhood and then tracing his evolution from a conscientious priest to a heroic prophet and—finally—a martyr, gunned down in 1980 while celebrating mass. The “revolution of Christ’s love” that so moved St. Oscar is as relevant to our own lives as it was to an El Salvador torn by civil unrest: motivated by the power of love instead of arms; seeking not the overthrow but the conversion of society; and asserting that all people are equally beloved by God and equally deserving of the world’s resources.
