    This book recounts the quintessential conflict between an American theologian and the Vatican. The Curran case framed an era, from 1965 to 1990, and left behind unresolved questions about authority and freedom in the Catholic Church today. Larry Witham uses the fast-paced narrative of a journalist to recreate this era, weaving biography, history, and theology together with courtroom drama. This book covers the life and times of Charles Curran, moral theology, Catholic higher education, academic freedom, and finally, the unprecedented trial that brought cardinals and theologians to the witness stand.

    Written between AD 413 and 426, The City of God is one of the great cornerstones in the history of Christian thought, a book vital to understanding modern Western society. Augustine originally intended it to be an apology for Christianity against the accusation that the Church was responsible for the decline of the Roman Empire. Indeed, Augustine produced a great amount of evidence to prove that paganism was responsible for this event. However, by the time the work was finished, the book had taken on a larger theme: a cosmic interpretation of history in terms of the conflict between good (the City of God) and evil (the Earthly City). Augustine foresees that, through the will of God, the people of the City of God will eventually win immortality, while those of the Earthly City will suffer destruction.

    G. K. Chesterton was a journalist, playwright, poet, biographer, novelist, essayist, literary commentator, editor, orator, artist, and theologian. Orthodoxy is his great apologia for the Christian faith, which was prompted by a serious attack in 1903 against Christianity by well-known newspaper editor Robert Blatchford. Published just five years later, Chesterson’s famous reply took the form of an autobiographical account of his own indoctrination into the faith. Rather than attempt to explain how Christianity can be believed, he emphasizes what fulfillment in this life can come from believing. His argument is that people in western society need a life of “practical romance, the combination of something that is strange with something that is secure. We need so to view the world as to combine an idea of wonder and an idea of welcome.”

    It is 1912, and at Cambridge University the modern age is knocking at the gate. In lecture halls and laboratories, the model of a universe governed by the mind of God is at last giving way to something wholly rational, a universe governed by the laws of physics. To junior fellow Fred Fairly, this comes as a great comfort. Science, he is certain, will soon explain everything. Mystery will be routed by reason, and the demands of the soul will be seen for what they are, a distraction and an illusion. Into Fred’s orderly life comes Daisy, with a bang—literally. One moment the two are perfect strangers; the next, they are casualties of a freakish accident, occupants of the same warm bed. Fred has never been so close to a woman before, one so pretty, so plainspoken, and yet so mysterious. Is she a manifestation of chaos, or a sign of another kind of order?

    For centuries, Christians have been tormented by one question above all: “If God is good and all-powerful, why does he allow his creatures to suffer pain?” Is there justice or wisdom to be won by suffering, or some reward beyond understanding? And what of the suffering of animals, which neither deserve pain nor can be improved by it? Is the quantity and variety of suffering in the world inconsistent with, or evidence against, an omnipotent and perfectly loving God? The greatest Christian thinker of all time sets out to disentangle this knotty issue. With his signature wealth of compassion and insight, C. S. Lewis offers answers to these crucial questions and shares his hope and wisdom to help heal a world hungering for a true understanding of human nature, free will, and the will of the Divine.

    In one of his most enlightening works, C. S. Lewis shares his ruminations on both the form and the meaning of selected psalms. In the introduction he explains, “I write for the unlearned about things in which I am unlearned myself.” Consequently, he takes on a tone of thoughtful collegiality as he writes on one of the Bible’s most elusive books. Characteristically graceful and lucid, Lewis cautions us that the psalms were originally written as songs that should now be read in the spirit of lyric poetry rather than as doctrinal treatises or sermons. Drawing from daily life as well as the literary world, Lewis begins to reveal the mystery that often shrouds the psalms.

    This fascinating history, based on meticulous research into the correspondence and documentation of the Founding Fathers, from the crafting of the Declaration of Independence to the signing of the peace treaty with Britain, sheds light on how the Judeo-Christian worldview motivated the Founding Fathers, influenced national independence, inspired our foundational documents, and established the American nation. Written with the pacing and feeling of an enticing drama, By the Hand of Providence is crafted for popular appeal with a compelling mix of dramatized story and action-driven narrative—but with the authenticity and academic verity of historian Rod Gragg.

    Josh Hamilton was the first player chosen in the first round of the 1999 baseball draft. He was destined to be one of those rare “high-character” superstars. But in 2001, working his way from the minors to the majors, all of the plans for Josh went off the rails in a moment of weakness. What followed was a four-year nightmare of drugs and alcohol, estrangement from friends and family, and his eventual suspension from baseball. Beyond Belief details the events that led up to the derailment, explaining how a young man destined for fame and wealth could allow his life to be taken over by drugs and alcohol. But this is also the memoir of a spiritual journey that breaks through pain and heartbreak and leads to the spectacular rebirth of Josh’s major-league career. Josh Hamilton makes no excuses and places no blame on anyone other than himself. He takes responsibility for his poor decisions and believes his story can help millions who battle the same demons. “I have been given a platform to tell my story,” he says. “I pray every night I am a good messenger.”

    The average person has 70,000 thoughts every day, and many of those trigger a corresponding emotion. No wonder so many of us often feel like we’re controlled by our emotions, and that our lives would be much improved if we controlled them. In Living beyond Your Feelings, Joyce Meyer examines the gamut of feelings that human beings experience. She discusses the way the brain processes and stores memories and thoughts, and she explains how we can manage our reactions to those emotions, one at a time. In doing so, she gives readers a toolbox for managing the way they react to the onslaught of feelings that can wreak havoc on their lives. In this book, Meyer blends the wisdom of the Bible with the latest psychological research and discusses the four personality types, their influence on one’s outlook, the impact of stress on physical and emotional health, the power of memories, the influence of words on emotions, the power of replacing reactions with pro-actions, and the benefits of happiness.

    New York Times bestselling author Dr. David J. Lieberman introduces a wonderful, right-to-the-point audiobook that tells listeners how to put an end to boundary issues once and for all. A work colleague with whom you have only a casual relationship asks you to co-sign a loan for him. Your neighbor asks you to keep her antisocial, flea-riddled cat for the weekend—again. We’ve all faced sticky situations like these—unreasonable demands on our time and inappropriate requests from family, friends, coworkers, or casual acquaintances. We want to say no. We have the right to say no—always—and yet we don’t. Some people will take “no” for an answer, and that’s the end of it—but some people continue to push. What do you do when the person on the other end of your “no” refuses to accept your refusal? You’ll discover exactly what to say as well as learn the underlying psychology that motivates them to always ask and you to always give in. Plus, you’ll learn step-by-step what you can do about it.

    The problems with the Bible that New Testament scholar Bart Ehrman discussed in his bestseller Misquoting Jesus—and on The Daily Show with John Stewart, NPR, and Dateline NBC, among others—are expanded upon exponentially in his latest book: Jesus, Interrupted. This New York Times bestseller reveals how books in the Bible were actually forged by later authors, and that the New Testament itself is riddled with contradictory claims about Jesus—information that scholars know… but the general public does not. If you enjoy the work of Elaine Pagels, Marcus Borg, John Dominic Crossan, and John Shelby Spong, you’ll find much to ponder in Jesus, Interrupted.

    It has been nearly five decades since Shirley MacLaine commenced her brave and public commitment to chronicling her personal quest for spiritual understanding. Now Shirley is back -- with her most breathtakingly powerful and unique book yet. The Camino is the story of a riveting odyssey that began with a pair of anonymous handwritten letters imploring Shirley to make a difficult pilgrimage along the Santiago de Compostela Camino in Spain. Throughout history, countless pilgrims have taken up the trail. It is an ancient -- and allegedly enchanted -- pilgrimage. People from St. Francis of Assisi to Dante and Chaucer have taken the journey -- a nearly 500-mile trek across highways, mountains, cities and fields. For Shirley, the Camino was both an intense spiritual and physical challenge. For a woman in her sixth decade completing such a grueling trip on foot in thirty days at twenty miles per day was remarkable. But even more astounding was her spiritual route: back thousands of years, through past lives to the very origin of the universe. With rich insight, humility, and grace, The Camino promises listeners the journey of a thousand lifetimes.

    Are you and your spouse speaking the same language? While love is a many splendored thing, it is sometimes a very confusing thing, too. As people come in all varieties, shapes, and sizes, so do their choices of personal expressions of love. But more often than not, the giver and the receiver express love in different ways. This can lead to misunderstanding, quarrels, and even divorce. Quality time, words of affirmation, gifts, acts of service, and physical touch are the five basic love languages. Dr. Gary Chapman identifies these and guides couples towards a better understanding of their unique languages of love. Couples who understand each other’s love language hold a priceless advantage in the quest for love that lasts a lifetime—they know how to effectively and consistently make each other feel truly and deeply loved. That gift never fades away. Learn to speak and understand your mate’s love language. Skillful communication is within your grasp!

    This is historian Zoë Oldenbourg’s long-awaited masterpiece: an immensely exciting romance, in the highest sense, which has at the same time an unsparingly realistic approach to the Middle Ages. With subtlety and exceptional sensitivity, Oldenbourg analyzes the complicated tangle of currents and ideas that motivated the Crusades. More than simply a religious phenomenon or a manifestation of pure aggression, the Crusades were the result of a religious climate that led people of all walks of life to leave their homes and follow the unattainable ideal of heaven on earth. Oldenbourg evokes the whole structure of the feudal society and reveals the ingenuity of the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem. This story is peopled with such great personalities as Bohemond, Tancred, Peter the Hermit, Godfrey of Bouillon, Saladin, and Richard the Lionheart.

    Every woman was once a little girl. And every little girl holds in her heart her most precious dreams. She longs to be swept up into a romance, to play an irreplaceable role in a great adventure, to be the Beauty of the story. Those desires are far more than child’s play. They are the secret to the feminine heart. And yet—how many women do you know who ever find that life? As the years pass by, the heart of a woman gets pushed aside, wounded, buried. She finds no romance except in novels, no adventure except on television, and she doubts very much that she will ever be the Beauty in any tale. Most women think they have to settle for a life of efficiency and duty, chores and errands, striving to be the women they “ought” to be but often feeling they have failed. Sadly, too many messages for Christian women add to the pressure. “Do these ten things, and you will be a godly woman.” The effect has not been good on the feminine soul. The message of Captivating is this: your heart matters more than anything else in all creation. The desires you had as a little girl and the longings you still feel as a woman—they are telling you of the life God created you to live. He offers to come now as the hero of your story, to rescue your heart and release you to live as a fully alive and feminine woman—a woman who is truly captivating.
