Explanation of the Book:

The perfect gift! A specially priced, beautifully designed hardcover edition of The Joy of the Gospel with a foreword by Robert Barron and an afterword by James Martin, SJ. “The joy of the gospel fills the hearts and lives of all who encounter Jesus… In this Exhortation I wish to encourage the Christian faithful to embark upon a new chapter of evangelization marked by this joy, while pointing out new paths for the Church’s journey in years to come.” – Pope Francis This special edition of Pope Francis's popular message of hope explores themes that are important for believers in the 21st century. Examining the many obstacles to faith and what can be done to overcome those hurdles, he emphasizes the importance of service to God and all his creation. Advocating for “the homeless, the addicted, refugees, indigenous peoples, the elderly who are increasingly isolated and abandoned,” the Holy Father shows us how to respond to poverty and current economic challenges that affect us locally and globally. Ultimately, Pope Francis demonstrates how to develop a more personal relationship with Jesus Christ, “to recognize the traces of God’s Spirit in events great and small.” Profound in its insight, yet warm and accessible in its tone, The Joy of the Gospel is a call to action to live a life motivated by divine love and, in turn, to experience heaven on earth. Includes a foreword by Robert Barron, author of Catholicism: A Journey to the Heart of the Faith and James Martin, SJ, author of Jesus: A Pilgrimage

Bringing the Catholic Church Into the Twenty First Century

Release: 2013-03
Editor: Strategic Book Publishing
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

With 95 percent of Catholic school students abandoning the regular practice of their faith before completing their educations, there is an urgent need for reform in regard to how the Faith is taught. While the Church maintains there is a God, the materialistic world says that both God and religion are false. In time science may indeed prove both to be false if steps are not taken to provide evidence that God exists. Author Frank Baker believes that Faith teachings should be made to conform to the same standards as academic teachings, meaning that what's being taught should be backed up with actual evidence. Bringing the Catholic Church Into the Twenty-First Century seeks to present irrefutable evidence that, among other things, there is a God and the soul does indeed survive after death. The book also explores the creation story as told by Genesis and contrasts it with the teachings of modern science. If those responsible for teaching the Faith were to read this book and put its principals into practice, the Catholic Church would stand a better chance of adapting to the rigors of an increasingly scrutinous world, and finding a means to thrive in the twenty-first century.Born and raised in Melbourne, Australia, author Frank Baker now lives in Bundaberg in Queensland. After 34 years working for the Gas & Fuel Corporation, Frank is now retired and spends his time writing, playing croquet, ballroom dancing, and playing cards. He is also currently the treasurer of the Moore Park Beach Arts Festival. This is his first book. Publisher's website: http: //sbpra.com/FrankBake

Explanation of the Book:

The techniques of psychotherapy are often given undue emphasis, slighting the importance of the psychotherapist. Research suggests that the same techniques are differently effective when used by equally trained and supervised therapists. Not only are some therapists more effective, irrespective of the type of therapy they practice, but some, because of their personal qualities, may actually harm those with whom they work. This research reflects the vast importance of the personality of the therapist, evoking the question of how a therapist may develop personhood. Aimed at training as well as practicing psychotherapists--social workers, counselors, psychologists, and psychiatrists--this scholarly exploration of personhood includes various models for classifying the types of psychotherapy and the place of personhood in this context, as well as a review of existing theory and research literature on specific personal therapist variables as they relate to therapy outcome. The role of traditional spirituality in the development of personhood is given particular emphasis.

A History of the Church in Latin America

A History of the Church in Latin America
Author: Enrique Dussel
Pages: 388
ISBN: 0802821316
Available:
Release: 1981
Editor: Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

This is a print on demand book and is therefore non- returnable. Today Latin America is in the throes of a cultural and theological awakening that is challenging its dependence on Europe and North America. The Christians of Latin America are therefore brought face to face with the option of revolution as a means of achieving liberation from European and North American theologies. As a result, liberation theology, which had its beginnings in Latin America, is rapidly gaining popularity among nations of the Third World. Author Enrique Dussel believes that a history of the church in Latin America is essential to understanding the direction of the contemporary church. This comprehensive history, with its emphasis on theology, will thus help historians and theologians to better understand the formation and continuity of the Latin American tradition. The book is divided into four parts: "A Hermeneutical Introduction," "The Christianization of the West Indies (1492-1808)," "The Agony of Colonial Christianity (1808- 1962)," and "The Church and Latin American Liberation." Dussel's aim in these sections is not to record all the events of each period, but to demonstrate the validity of establishing limits for each time span. Therefore, this is not a "finished" history; rather, it is one method of delineating certain historical periods which can be expanded upon and completed by later historians. This book is a translation of the revised, second Spanish edition.

Explanation of the Book:

'Is life worth living? Yes, a thousand times yes when the world still holds such spirits as Professor James.' - Gertrude Stein A classic of American thought, William James’ The Varieties of Religious Experience is an extraordinary study of human spirituality in all its forms and one of the most profound works of Psychology ever written. When the book was published in 1902 the study of the human mind was a thrillingly new field of scientific enquiry: James was one of the first to seriously examine the psychology of religious faith and where he led, both Jung and Freud would follow. Yet for all its historical significance, this is a book full of humanity, wit and some deeply personal stories of revelation, religious devotion and mystical experience. The Routledge Classics edition of The Varieties of Religious Experience makes available in paperback for the first time the Centenary Edition published by Routledge in 2002 with new introductions on the historical and contemporary significance of James’ work and a foreword by the author’s grandson, Micky James.

Building a Better Bridge

Available:
Release: 2008-11-10
Editor: Georgetown University Press
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Building a Better Bridge is a record of the fourth "Building Bridges" seminar held in Sarajevo in 2005 as part of an annual symposium on Muslim-Christian relations cosponsored by Georgetown University and the Archbishop of Canterbury. This volume presents the texts of the public lectures with regional presentations on issues of citizenship, religious believing and belonging, and the relationship between government and religion—both from the immediate situation in Bosnia-Herzegovina and from three contexts further afield: Britain, Malaysia, and West Africa. Both Christian and Muslim scholars propose key questions to be faced in addressing the issue of the common good. How do we approach the civic sphere as believers in particular faiths and as citizens of mixed societies? What makes us who we are, and how do our religious and secular allegiances relate to one another? How do we accommodate our commitment to religious values with acknowledgment of human disagreement, and how can this be expressed in models of governance and justice? How are we, mandated by scriptures to be caretakers, to respond to the current ecological and economic disorder of our world? Michael Ipgrave and his contributors do not claim to provide definitive answers to these questions, but rather they further a necessary dialogue and show that, while Christian and Islamic understandings of God may differ sharply and perhaps irreducibly, the acknowledgment of one another as people of faith is the surest ground on which to build trust, friendship, and cooperation.

Lying and Christian Ethics

Pages: 240
ISBN: 9781107061095
Available:
Release: 2014-04-28
Editor: Cambridge University Press
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Lying and Christian Ethics defends the controversial "absolute view" of lying, which maintains that an assertion contrary to the speaker's mind is always wrong, regardless of the speaker's intentions. Whereas most people believe that a lie told for a good cause, such as protecting Jews from discovery by Nazis, is morally acceptable, Christopher Tollefsen argues that Christians should support the absolute view. He looks back to the writings of Augustine and Aquinas to illustrate that lying violates the basic human goods of integrity and sociality and severely compromises the values of religion and truth. He critiques the comparatively permissive views espoused by Cassian, Bonhoeffer, and Niebuhr and argues that lies often jeopardize the good causes for which they are told. Beyond framing a moral absolute against lying, this book explores the questions of to whom we owe the truth and when, and what steps we may take when we should not give it.
