Galatians1Galatians: Life in the New Creation

Ronald D. Witherup

Some struggle to connect with doctrinal discussion they perceive to be abstract or abstruse. Others may find the scope of theology, and the connections between different theological issues, dizzying. The guiding motif of this book is the claim that theology is full-bodied thought. The phrase 'full-bodied' shows both the richness of the experience of theology and its nature as a thoroughly embodied encounter with ways of knowing God and God's ways with the world.

A CrisisInCultureA Crisis in Culture

Fr. George Rutler

Fr. George Rutler shows how the West's decades-long cultural assault against Christianity is finally reaching its inevitable conclusion: the self-destruction of our culture and society.
Fr. Rutler sees the past thirty years as a moral cold war between Christians and those for whom personal behavior is of lesser concern than one’s good intentions. He explains how relativism and its consequent dictatorship of feeling spun civilization on its head by denying the relevance and the very existence of God. Indeed, it seeped into the remotest corners of society and, over time, led our entire culture into a full-on rebellion against our Creator. The good news is that Fr. Rutler believes we can emerge from the rubble of civilization, but first there must be a battle between those who are inspired by God and those who are haunted by Him.

HenryDeLubacHenri de Lubac and the Shaping of Modern Theology: A Reader

David Grumett

Henri de Lubac being well acquainted with political theory and philosophy, diagnosed the pathologies of modern materialist ideologies and presented a Christian alternative. Within the Church, too, de Lubac was a witness of his times. He brought patristic and medieval texts to bear on doctrinal questions. In the 1950s, he experienced internal exile within the Church, forbidden to publish theological writings. After de Lubac's rehabilitation, however, Pope John XXIII asked him to serve as a consultant for the Second Vatican Council. In 1983 Pope John Paul II named him a cardinal. De Lubac's theological writings are voluminous and wide-ranging, and this is the first time his most important texts have been combined into a single book. Annotated and arranged by theme, these passages address God, Christian faith, the Church, grace and nature, Scripture, the Eucharist, Buddhism, and the renewal of theology.

AnIntroductionToChristianEthicsAn Introduction to Christian Ethics: A New Testament Perspective

Alberto de Mingo Kaminouchi PhD

Introduces the contemporary reader to Christian ethics by examining the New Testament through the three key concepts of Aristotle’s ethics: happiness, virtue, and love. In turn, the three affirmations orient this reflection through the Gospel. First, when the triune God appears on the horizon, it becomes easier to understand that existence has a purpose: namely, participating with the entire human family in this project of happiness called the Kingdom of God. Second, happiness is not something outside of us; it consists in the practice of the virtues that bring about a personal transformation. Third, the project of the Kingdom leads us to live in love with others. De Mingo shows the reader a real model of this in the community we call the church.

EightPopesAndTherCrisisOfModernityEight Popes and the Crisis of Modernity

Russell Shaw

Assaults on the dignity and rights of the human person have been central to the ongoing crisis of the modern era in the last hundred years. This book takes a searching look at the roots of this problem and the various approaches to it by the eight men who led the Catholic Church in the twentieth century, from Pope St. Pius X and his crusade against "Modernism" to Pope St. John Paul II and his appeal for a renewed rapprochement between faith and reason. Thus, it offers an interpretation of recent world events viewed through the lens of an ancient institution, the papacy.

CaringForOurCommonHomeCaring for our Common Home

Catherine Wright

What makes Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Sí so unique is how deeply it connects the cries of the poor with the cries of Earth. Thanks to the intellectual matrix in Latin America and other formative experiences, his ministry to the poor, Pope Francis recognized the urgency of addressing the Earth’s deterioration and an aspect of Catholic social teaching that had not been articulated fully enough: care of creation. This interactive text helps readers answer the above question by exposing some of the problems we are facing, engaging with the theology Laudato Sí, and offering a way for people of faith to move from theory to a practical and faithful commitment to creation.

MissionPerspectiveInLukeAndActsMission Perspective in Luke and Acts

Magnante Antonio

The Gospel of Luke shows us the ministry of Jesus. Luke’s second book, the Acts of the Apostles, shows us the ministry of the early Church. There is a unity between the two books, and that unity is provided by the idea of mission. In the Gospel, the apostles and disciples are instructed to go forth on mission; in the Acts, mission is actually carried out, first by the Twelve apostles, and then by Paul and the early Christians. This book is a welcome tool for all in ministry. An awareness of the continuity between Luke's two books will deepen our awareness of mission as central to being a Christian, and will enhance our practical commitment to mission.

After Witeness After Whiteness

Jennings Willie James

If theological education aims to form people who can gather others together through border-crossing pluralism and God-drenched communion, we can begin to cultivate the radical belonging that is at the heart of God’s transformative work. This book is a call for Christian intellectuals to exchange isolation for intimacy and embrace their place in the crowd—just like the crowd that followed Jesus and experienced his miracles. It is part memoir, part de-colonial analysis, and part poetry—a multimodal discourse that deliberately transgresses boundaries, as Jennings hopes theological education will do, too.

MaryInDifferentTraditionsMary in Different Traditions

Thomas G. Casey

How can we learn to see Mary in a new way? The author explores the insights of other faiths Protestantism, Orthodoxy, Islam, and Judaism; and also the insights of the `other' within the Catholic tradition the Eastern-rite Catholics who, despite their full communion with Rome, have a distinct approach to Mary based on their unique liturgical and spiritual tradition. Perhaps the novelty of their viewpoints on Mary can bring us to the joy of surprise about her once again. If we can learn to wonder anew about this woman from Nazareth, maybe we will enjoy the even greater wonder of her son, Jesus.
