Blessed Jerzy Popieluszko: Truth Versus Totalitarianism
Presents an intimate portrait of the courageous Polish priest who changed his life and that of countless others.
As the young chaplain of the Solidarity labour union, Father Popieluszko embodied the Polish people's resistance to Communism, and for this he was murdered in 1984, at the age of thirty-seven, by the Communist regime's security forces.
Soon afterward Father Popieluszko was hailed as a martyr and a national hero, and his example inspired the Polish people to persevere in their struggle for political and religious freedom.

Revolutionary Saint: The Theological Legacy of Óscar Romero
Michael E. Lee
Drawing on Romero’s biography as well as his homilies and other writings, Lee considers specifically how Romero’s witness challenges Christians in the U.S. to reimagine a robust Christian spirituality that is at once a mystical encounter with God and a prophetic engagement in the struggle for justice.
In light of Romero’s beatification and pending canonization, Lee reflects on the implications of the archbishop's recognition as a martyr and on the model of holiness he offers for the wider church today.

An Immovable Feast: How I Gave Up Spirituality for a Life of Religious Abundance
This is the story of one man's religious path that begins with a fundamentalist Baptist childhood to an adolescence in emergent church spirituality. He moves on through hipster years as a house painter and musician, then marries and enters a seminary in Wisconsin.
After years of preparing to be an Anglican priest, and his final bold decision of joining the Catholic Church, Tyler Blanski's tale does not reject suitors of religion, but seduces them. An Immovable Feast is a profound love story told with humour, wisdom and bite. Blanski reminds us that religion is the liturgy of heaven...on earth.
