  • By Thomas Merton Published by Farrar, Strauss, Giroux Used, 1988, Hard Cover, 212 Pages Readable copy in good condition with some underlining and marks in the margins mostly in the first half of the book. Library copy. Dust jacket is in good condition. During the years 1964-65, Merton sought, and was finally given, permission to live alone in his hermitage at the Abbey of Gethsemani. These years were criticalhe had to balance commitment to the demands of the monastic community with the call to a more solitary lifeand the writing from that time is consequently charged with disappointments and uncertainties, as well as quiet reflection and humor. Merton's frustration with church complacency and the censorship of his ideas is evident, a factor that probably hindered publication of this journal until now. But he also records musings, dreams, the visits of special friends. A very personal piece of writing blending "heavenliness and anguish," wherein unfolds its special appeal. Carol J.

    By Ignacio Larranaga Published by Mediaspaul Used Book, 1994, Softcover, 452 pages "Here, told in a vivid and original way, is the full story of the life of St. Francis of Assisi. This story has been told many times before, but Fr. Larranaga tells it with a new spirit, seamlessly combining a modern spirit with the freshness and sense of wonder of the Fioretti. When Francis Bernardone was held as a prisoner of war at the age of 20, he never dreamed that he would become a knight in the service of Lady Poverty. By the time he died 25 years later, he had become the Poor Man of God, the living image of the Crucified Savior." (From Goodreads website) Book is like new. No marks or underlining found.

  • USED BOOK By Deirdre Manifold Published by The Militia of Our Immaculate Mother. 1992, Soft Cover, 280 pages. The book is in  good condition overall. The first 50 pages or so are slightly dog-eared at the bottom. The pages are clean and there are no noticeable marks. A very readable copy.   In this book, the extraordinary story is told, how the international conspiracy to achieve a materialist world dictatorship is being pursued. The facade of ideologies and parliamentary politics is unerringly penetrated, to reveal the hidden mechanisms of world power politics, in all their Machiavellian subtlety. Deirdre Manifold, a Galway housewife, made it her study over a lifetime to unravel the peculiar and unique connections of this conspiracy, its roots in the sixteenth century, its present-day extent, with tentacles both in the Kremlin and in Wall Street. This book is challenging. One cannot ignore it. Either one must accept the analysis put forward or one must demonstrate where it is wrong.

  • Used book like new. 180 pages. Sophia Institute Press. Written for soldiers by Blessed Fulton Sheen in the darkest moments of World War II, this small prayer book has been proven in combat and hallowed by the suffering, prayers, and sacrifices of thousands of Catholic fighting men and women on ships, submarines, and aircraft, in fortresses and foxholes, and even in hellish prisoner of war camps across Europe and the Pacific. Peacetime led those soldiers and sailors to put aside this powerful wartime prayer book as they entered a world rendered more secure because of their sacrifices. New enemies have shattered the security those good soldiers won. Terrorism now takes as its battlefield our homes, our schools, and our workplaces, threatening even those of us who are not in the military. Duct tape may protect us from chemical and biological weapons, but it surely won't protect us from the corrosive, soul-destroying impact of fear, anger, uncertainty, and despair, which daily life on this battlefield is causing already.

  • 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.
