  • By Jean Staker Garton Published by Bethany House Publishers 1979, Softcover, 108 pages USED BOOK - Good copy. No noticeable markings on pages. Some marks on front cover. Pages are yellowed due to aging. A very readable copy. Previous owner sticker on inside front cover. "The abortion movement has been rolling like a juggernaut across the landscape of our cherished moral values. A sizeable squad of militant proponents, both religious and otherwise, have been at the controls. The fuel that powers the movement is its slogans: “Every woman has a right to control her own body!” “Every child a wanted child!” “Freedom of choice!” “A fetus is not a person!” And there is nothing quite so convincing as a good slogan if it is repeated often. But the problem is that slogans often obscure more than they clarify. The result is that many women feel deep sadness and uneasiness about the whole matter of abortion, but the slogans sound so plausible and formidable that they cannot seem to find words with which to voice their own objections. Jean Garton masterfully probes the true meanings behind the smokescreen of words which cloud the real issue. Slogan by slogan she supplies the reasoning for the people who have known all along that abortion is wrong but haven’t known how to say so." (From the back cover)

  • By Fernand Jette, O.M.I. Published by Sheed & Ward 1963, Hardcover, 180 pages USED - Condition - Fair. Dust jacket good, but has some staining. Readable copy which has substantial underlining. To most American Catholics, "Mere Marie of the Ursulines" is remembered, if at al, as one of the great heroines of our missionary past. The first missionary nun to come to the wilderness of New France, she exhibited a courage and holiness which give her a deserved place in missionary history by the side of the great Jesuit missioners and martyrs who were her contemporaries. But there was another - and even more significant - side to this remarkable woman. She was a contemplative as well as an activist, a master of the spiritual life as well as an administrator of broad vision and an educator of regrettably rare sensitivity to the real needs of both teachers and the taught. She was, in short, a great spiritual writer and director of souls. It is this neglected - indeed, almost unknown - Mother Mary who emerges from pages of this book. Father Jette has skillfully and lovingly set forth her spiritual teaching in such a way that the modern reader is brought once more into vital contact with the spirit and spirituality of an authentic human being "open to God" on every level of her varied life as wife, mother, religious, missioner. It would be a mistake, however, to regard Father Jette's work in restoring to us "the spiritual teaching of Mother Mary of the Incarnation" as an interesting but ultimately irrelevant historical exercise. Despite the centuries which separate her from us, Mother Mary was surprisingly - and rewardingly - "modern". On almost every page there gleams some gem of her hard-won wisdom concerning that most delicate and dramatic of situations - God's quest for the human soul even as the soul seeks for God. Anyone in our day who takes that quest seriously will find in Mother Mary an understanding but challenging guide. (From the inside front of the dust jacket)    
  • By Alexander Jones Published by Sheed & Ward 1961, Hardcover, 214 pages USED: Condition - Good, Readable. Has some underling in spots. All pages are intact. Some pages have staining (probably due to coffee) Dust jacket is in good condition with slight crumpling at top. The title of this book is not lightly chosen: it deals with the Bible, the living word of the living God. God's Living Word - a revelation given not once for all, but as a seed, to expand and reveal its meaning more richly and pertinently as history progressed and the economy of God's plan developed; God's chosen way of expressing himself to men, and to the men he chose, first the Jews and then the Church of Christ; God's word made flesh and revealed in the Church which sprang from the life of the Word. The problems of interpretation are many - first and foremost, what does the Word of God mean? The mind of the Bible seems so remote from us, and we must learn to enter into its way of presenting the truth. There is the problem of the literary and historical background, of the literary forms of Old and New Testaments, of the unity of the four Gospels, of the relationship between the authority of the Church and the authority of Scripture. All these Father Jones discusses with penetrating scholarship and brilliance. He writes with a lively and skilful pen, turning the obscurity of the Biblical text into a challenging mystery, teaching us that, approaching the darkness that surrounds God in faith, we will be progressively rewarded out of an inexhaustible source of truth. As we read this book we grow aware of the great adventure of God's interventions in history, recorded in the Scriptures, and of the exhilarating and demanding call the Word sends out to each one of us. NOTE: There is an extra shipping charge since this is a hard cover book.

  • By Thomas Cahill Published by Penguin Books USED Book, 2002, Softcover, 241 pages A very good library copy with no markings inside. Library marking on bottom of book. Slight yellowing due to age. All pages intact. "Acclaimed not only for its "grace, skill and erudition," (The Washington Post) but also for its warm, engaging narrative, Thomas Cahill's Hinges of History series humanized the history of both the Jewish and the Irish people. In Pope John XXIII, he combines his remarkable insight and knowledge to portray this legendary and beloved pontiff. Pope John XXIII opens with a concise but sweeping history of the Catholic Church and the papacy, culminating in the brief but unforgettable reign of Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli as Pope John XXIII, in the mid-twentieth century. At seventy-six years of age, neither an intellectual nor a highly trained theologian, he was at first regarded as a transitional pope. During his reign, however, he awed the world with the seminal and unprecedented change he brought about in his concern for the fundamental plight of humankind. In rich, impassioned prose, Cahill follows Roncalli's life from his peasant roots to his landmark Second Vatican Council, with its emphasis on worldwide social justice, which marked the beginning of a true shift in the Catholic Church and its relationship to the modern world. In a biography that will captivate Catholics and non-Catholics alike, Cahill's signature blend of interpretive insight and scholarship mirrors Pope John's own intuition, spontaneity, and all-embracing vision."
