Jesus: A Pilgrimage

Hardcover: 544 pages
Publisher: HarperOne (March 11, 2014)
ISBN-13: 978-0062024237
Price: $27.99

James Martin, SJ, gifted storyteller, editor at large of America magazine, popular media commentator, and New York Times bestselling author of The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything, brings the Gospels to life in Jesus: A Pilgrimage,and invites believers and seekers alike to experience Jesus through Scripture, prayer and travel. Combining the fascinating insights of historical Jesus studies with profound spiritual insights about the Christ of faith, Father Martin recreates the world of first-century Galilee and Judea to usher you into Jesus's life and times and show readers how Jesus speaks to us today. Martin also brings together the most up-to-date Scripture scholarship, wise spiritual reflections, and lighthearted stories about traveling through the Holy Land with a fellow (and funny) Jesuit, visiting important sites in the life of Jesus of Nazareth.
The person at the heart of the Gospels can seem impossibly istant. Stories about his astonishing life and ministry—clever parables that upended everyone's expectations, incredible healings that convinced even skeptics, nature miracles that dazzled the dumbstruck disciples—can seem far removed from our own daily lives, hard to understand, and at times irrelevant. But in Jesus you will come to know him as Father Martin knows him: Messiah and Savior, as well as friend and brother.

Editorial Reviews

"This book will change you. It is an invitation to the Messiah's wedding feast--and a foretaste of heaven. It will change the way you experience the sacraments, personal prayer, Scripture study, and marriage. Most of all, it will deepen your love for Christ." -

Scott Hahn, author of The Lamb's Supper and Signs of Life.

"Brant Pitre has a wonderful gift for blending insight, scholarship, and an elegant, appealing style. The result is an extraordinary encounter with Jesus Christ, the meaning of his mission, and the spousal nature of God's love for humanity and Christ's love for the Church."

Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Capp., Archbishop of Philadelphia

 

Sacred Art of Lovingkindness: Preparing to Practice
 
Author:  Shapiro, Rami
Paperback: $
ISBN: 9781594731518
 
We are all born in the image of God, but living out the likeness of God is a choice. This inspiring, practical guidebook provides you with the tools you need to realize the divinity within yourself, recognize the divinity within others, and act on the obligation to manifest God's infinite compassion in your own life.

Guided by Rabbi Rami Shapiro, you will explore Judaism's Thirteen Attributes of Lovingkindness as the framework for cultivating a life of goodness. Shapiro translates these attributes into practices--drawn from the teachings of a variety of faith traditions--that allow you to actualize God's glory through personal deeds of lovingkindness. You will enrich your own capacity for lovingkindness as you:

 Harvest kindness through compassionate honesty
 Make room in your heart for reality
 Recognize the manifestations of God
 Embrace the paradoxical truth of not-knowing
 Be present in the moment
 Do right by others

With candor, wit, and honesty, Shapiro shows you that by choosing to act out of love rather than fear, with kindness rather than anger, you can transform how you perceive the world and ultimately lead a more complete spiritual life.

Author: PhD, Rev. Canon C. K. Robertson
Paperback: $
ISBN: 9781594732980

Change is never easy, and it is most threatening to those in institutional power, whether in society or the Church. Yet there are times when transformation is sorely needed, and it usually takes troublemakers to help bring it about.
This book explores twelve of these fascinating--at times, intimidating--men and women. These Christian change agents were not afraid to challenge structures that would divide and repress, showing the world a different way of living. Throughout history, others have sought to canonize and control these individuals, but their faith, their vision, their courage continues to inspire us today ... if we let them.
Each profile includes a glimpse into the person's life and lasting legacy, historical reactions to each person's extraordinary actions, questions for reflection, and suggestions for further study. Profiles include:
 The Apostle Paul
 Mary Magdalene
 Francis of Assisi
 Thomas Cranmer
 Archbishop Oscar Romero
 Dorothy Day
... and more ...


 

 

Love: A Guide for Prayer

Authors: Jacqueline Syrup Bergan and Sister Marie Schwan
Paperback: $
ISBN: 9780829436112

Grow closer to God through six weeks of prayer focused on a specific spiritual topic.

Since their original release in the late 1980s, the Take and Receive prayer-book series has sold more than 150,000 copies, and its five themed books are hailed as classics in the Ignatian prayer tradition. The first two books in the series are being repackaged and reprinted by Loyola Press.

Love: A Guide for Prayer and Forgiveness: A Guide for Prayer provide topic-based opportunities for people to grow deeper in their relationship with God through prayer. The theme of each volume directly correlates with a segment of the Spiritual Exercises, though no previous experience with the Exercises is needed to benefit from these books.

Covering 36 days over a six-week period, each day offers scriptural passages with commentary, followed by a suggested approach to prayer for that day. Especially helpful is a section at the beginning of the book that explains the different types of solitary prayer that readers will be asked to engage in throughout the six weeks, such as meditation, contemplation, and centering prayer.

Ideal for all who desire a closer relationship with God, these books help us reimagine what it means to pray and help us see with new eyes God’s presence and activity in our daily lives.

Jean Laffite: The Pirate Who Saved America

Author: Susan Goldman Rubin
Hardcover
:   $
ISBN: 9780810997332

This biography of the infamous pirate Jean Laffite is a real-life, action-packed adventure. Since he was a young boy, Jean longed to be a pirate, and with the help of his brothers and uncle, he became one when he was just a teenager. Soon the only life he knew was on the high seas—a life full of glory, riches, disaster, and revenge. When he finally settled down in New Orleans, he managed to become a successful businessman and respected citizen, while still pirating. He even helped the United States win the War of 1812 when he alerted the U.S. government to a British plot to invade via New Orleans. With the help of Laffite and his pirates, General Andrew Jackson was able to beat back the British.

Praise for Jean Laffite:
"Move over, Jack Sparrow, and make way for Jean Laffite. This well-informed narrative gives readers a sense of what was happening in the world at the time as well as what it was like to be a real pirate."
--School Library Journal
