James Martin, SJ

Explains what prayer is, what to expect from praying, how to do it, and how it can transform us when we make it a regular practice in our lives. A guide walking beside us as we navigate our unique spiritual paths, Martin lays out the different styles and traditions of prayer throughout Christian history and invites us to experiment and discover which works best to feed our soul and build intimacy with our Creator. Father Martin makes clear there is not one secret formula for praying. However, like any relationship, each person can discover the best style for building an intimate relationship with God, regardless of religion or denomination.

TToYouAllHeartsAreOpen1o You All Hearts Are Open: Revitalizing the Church's Pattern of Asking God

Scot McKnight

Begins with the Collects of the Book of Common Prayer –prayers that have been used by Christians for centuries, are rooted in the Catholic tradition of prayer, and are deeply biblical. These prayers common to churches of nearly every denomination illustrate five elements of prayer itself: addressing God, asking God, reminding God of how God has acted in the past, expecting God to answer, and accessing God through Christ. They are the Bible’s pattern of petitioning God, which McKnight seeks to rediscover a path to relationship and true conversation with God.

WheatAndTaresWheat and Tares: Restoring the Moral Vision of a Scandalized Church

Fr. Mitch Pacwa, SJ

Fr. Pacwa brings consolation to all those who have been abused, wounded, or scandalized by the wickedness of priests and bishops. He takes you on a reassuring exploration of the Gospels to show how Christ anticipated the sins of the clergy and the hierarchy and gives us examples of how to deal with them spiritually emotionally, rationally, and practically. Fr. Mitch reinforces what Christ's parables teach us: that good and evil will co-exist in the Church, and that spiritual blindness will affect the moral life of the clergy and the lay faithful alike. The solution, he says, lies in the power of Jesus Death and Resurrection and the Apostles response to the Risen Lord: authentic conversion to faith in Jesus, which reorients our lives toward selfless service of others

Melissa drawing on the works of John Paul II and on those of the Church Fathers but also on the example of holy women in the Bible plus the Blessed Virgin Mary and the many female saints of the Church, offers insights into the fundamental strengths and habits that distinguish womanhood as a particular way of being human, while giving authentic witness to the divine image of our Creator.
