  • An Exorcist Tells His Story - by Fr. Gabriele Amorth

    An Exorcist Tells His Story - by Fr. Gabriele Amorth

    In this powerful book, the renowned exorcist of Rome tells of his many experiences in his ministry as an exorcist doing battle with Satan to relieve the great suffering of people in the grip of evil. The importance of the ministry to "expel demons" is clearly seen in the Gospels, from the actions of the Apostles, and from Church history. Fr. Amorth allows the reader to witness the activities of the exorcist, to experience what an exorcist sees and does. He also reveals how little modern science, psychology, and medicine can do to help those under Satan's influence, and that only the power of Christ can release them from this kind of mental, spiritual or physical suffering.

    An Exorcist Tells His Story has been a European best-seller that has gone through numerous printings and editions. No other book today so thoroughly and concisely discusses the topic of exorcism. 210 pages.

    "This is a very important book. Every pastoral leader, clergy and lay, should read it. The ministry of exorcism badly needs to be restored and Fr. Amorth's book is a significant contribution in this direction." - Ralph Martin

  • Bakhita: From Slave to Saint Book

    Bakhita: From Slave to Saint Book

    When she was about nine years old, Josephine Bakhita was kidnapped near Darfur, Sudan, by Arab slave traders. For several years she was subjected to brutal and humiliating treatment until she was ransomed and taken to Venice, Italy, where she became a Catholic and a nun.

    Joyfully and serenely Bakhita served in a convent, school and infirmary run by Canossian sisters in a small, obscure town in northern Italy until her death in 1947. Then something even more remarkable than her redemption happened.

    Hundreds of ordinary people came to see Bakhita lying in state, and along with these visits came stories about how the simple nun had given comfort, advice and encouragement as she went about her tasks as cook, doorkeeper, nurse, etc. Almost immediately graces and miracles attributed to Bakhita's intercession began to be reported.

    Ever since, the place where Bakhita died and the wonders began has been a shrine visited by people from all over the world. They come to seek the intercession of one who was no stranger to loss and suffering and yet had given herself with complete confidence to the Lord. It is here, in this sparsely furnished room, where Italian journalist Roberto Italo Zanini begins his story of Bakhita and her journey from slavery to sainthood.

    Based on Bakhita's autobiography, which she dictated to a Canossian sister in obedience to her superior, the canonization files and many other sources, Zanini records the life, virtues and miracles of this daughter of Africa who has become a sister to the whole world.Illustrated with 16 pages of photos

  • My Heart Will Triumph by Mirjana Soldo

    My Heart Will Triumph by Mirjana Soldo

    Mirjana Soldo was only 16 years old when she and five other children saw a mysterious young woman on a remote hillside in the village of Medjugorje, then part of Yugoslavia. The woman—who possessed a beauty and grace that seemed to come from beyond—identified herself as the Virgin Mary.

    The apparitions that began on the afternoon of June 24, 1981 would dramatically change Mirjana’s life and the lives of countless people around the world. Her claims, however, contradicted the atheistic ideologies of the Communist government and Mirjana was deemed “an enemy of the state.”

    Amazingly, the apparitions have continued for over 35 years. Millions of people travel to Medjugorje every year in search of answers to life’s biggest questions. The messages given by Mary are a call for mankind to return to God. And, according to Mirjana, the Virgin entrusted her with ten secrets that foretell the future of the world—secrets that she will reveal within her lifetime.

    Paperback. 369 pages. A portion of every book sold goes to Mary's Meals, a charity which feeds over a million children every day.

    SPECIAL OFFER: Every copy of My Heart Will Triumph ordered here on CatholicShop.com comes with a free My Heart Will Triumph bookmark!

  • The God of Miracles by Michael Brown

    The God of Miracles by Michael Brown

    Does God really heal? Does He really watch over your life? Does He really cause all those fateful happenings and triumphant moments and coincidences that mystify us? Michael Brown demonstrates that the clear answer is Yes!

     

    God is with us in ways we can hardly comprehend. He is closer than our shadows and wants the best for us. He wants to heal and fix the broken heart, the busted spirit. It takes action and holiness on our part and the living of several basic principles. In this book you will read about the remarkable way that miracles have occurred during natural calamities, including hurricane Katrina. You will see indications from the other side of the veil.

     

    You will see examples of extraordinary coincidences that prove beyond any skepticism that God can do whatever He wants whenever He wants and responds to us when we exhibit the characteristics of Jesus: Love, Patience and Humility. Read about cancer and AIDS patients who have survived beyond all odds about the strange way God can even connect people through the telephone. Learn about astounding signs and about those who have overcome the most intimidating and evil of circumstances through prayer and faith in dramatic settings.

     

    Problems in the family? Hurricanes? Earthquakes? There is nothing that is beyond The God of Miracles who only waits until we learn to call on Him.

  • The Shed That Fed a Million Children

    The Shed That Fed a Million Children

    HARDCOVER. 320 PAGES. In 1992, Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow was enjoying a pint with his brother when he got an idea that would change his life – and radically change the lives of others.

    After watching a news bulletin about war-torn Bosnia, the two brothers agreed to take a week’s hiatus from work to help.

    What neither of them expected is that what began as a one-time road trip in a beaten-up Landrover rapidly grew to become Magnus’s life’s work, leading him to leave his job, sell his house and direct all his efforts to feeding thousands of the world’s poorest children.

    Magnus retells how a series of miraculous circumstances and an overwhelming display of love from those around him led to the creation of Mary’s Meals; an organisation that could hold the key to eradicating child hunger altogether. This humble, heart-warming yet powerful story has never been more relevant in our society of plenty and privilege. It will open your eyes to the extraordinary impact that one person can make.

    Mary's Meals feeds a million hungry children in schools all around the world! Learn how they do it in this powerful book.

  • 40 Days with the Holy Spirit

    40 Days with the Holy Spirit

    By Jack Levison

    God, we know. Jesus, too. But the Holy Spirit? Now’s the time—and here’s the perfect book—to answer this question once and for all in a wonderful, inviting, and meaningful way.

    40 Dayswith the Holy Spirit will inspire you to encounter God in fresh and surprising ways. You’ll develop stronger spiritual muscles as you breathe, read,reflect, and pray—all with an eye to cultivating a relationship with the least familiar member of the Trinity. The book is interactive, offering the opportunity to write and pray each day; intelligent, rooted in a rigorous study of Scripture, from Genesis to Revelation; and inviting, with 40 insightful, well-planned 20—30 minute daily exercises; and prayerful, with 40 original prayers that capture each day’s insight into the deep, spiritual work of the Holy Spirit.

    "Jack Levison’s lively new book 40 Days with the Holy Spirit is an engaging devotional that invites the Christian community to be reacquainted withthe person and ministry of the Holy Spirit. I read it as a Pentecostalpastor/theologian and it provoked me to consider anew how the Spirit is activelyat work in my life and in the world. Though there are differences in pneumatology within the body of Christ, all who read this book will have to affirm that the Spirit is moving and Jack has caught its zeal!"
    —Johnathan E. Alvarado, Senior Pastor, Grace Church International, and Professor of Theology, Beulah Heights University, Atlanta, Georgia

    "Jack Levison’s new devotional will guide you into the theme of the Holy Spirit in Scripture, aiming for spiritual formation, not just spiritual information. My favorite part: the simple prayers at the end of each reading. A beautiful, accessible, and soul-nourishing resource!"
    —Brian D. McLaren, Author of We Make the Road by Walking

    "Jack Levison combines a scholar’s intimate knowledge of scripture with a bornwriter’s mastery of nuance, style, empathy and humor. Every page of this book brims with reverence for God and common-sense wisdom won the hardway."
    —David Laskin, author of TheFamily

    "40 Days with the Holy Spirit opens a door for all seekers, religious and irreligious, to experience ’God’s Spirit-breath within.’ This is more than a must read-its food for busy and hungry hearts."
    —Dr. Michael Rakes, Pastor at Winston Salem First

    "Is it possible to live a Spirit-filled life amid our dailydistractions and demands? Jack Levison assures us it is and offers a path to wisdom through stillness and abandonment...This book leads us to the ultimate Source, the Spirit. It is a guide not just for 40 days, but a lifetime."
    —Judith Valente, Correspondent, Religion & EthicsNewsweekly and author of The Art of Pausing

    "JackLevison brings together scholarship, Scripture meditation, concrete practices, and compelling inspiration. He helps us retrieve the tragically lost centrality of the Holy Spirit in the mainline Christian world. Here comes the return of the fire and the wind!"
    —Fr. Richard Rohr, ofm

    "Jack Levison’s book is not an overly intellectual look at the Holy Spirit, but really examines what it means to live a Spirit-filled life. A needed resource for those looking to be guided by the Holy Spirit found in Scripture. Jack opens our minds to the fullness of the Holy Spirit and removes the human limitations that we often place on this person of the Trinity, teaching us to hear and obey as God speaks."
    — Dr. John M. Perkins, Co-founder of the Christian Community Development Association (CCDA), Founder and President Emeritus ofthe John and Vera Mae Perkins Foundation

    "As with many Paraclete books, the book is shaped for the church calendar and this one for Lent, but this book far transcends Lent. It is for personal spiritual formation. Whatmatters perhaps most about the Holy Spirit is that we don’t "get" the Spirit conceptually and internally all at once (even if you are charismatic!) but we need to learn about the Spirit more and more. We learn not by cramming it all into one session — grabbing a concordance, a dictionary and a big theological book — but by daily long term routine exposure.

    Jack’s book isdesigned to do that: 40 days. Stories, good Bible study, and a prayer at the end of each short chapter. Gathered around seven verbs and these verbs organize the themes of the book: breathing, praying, practicing, learning, leading, building, and blossoming.

    This is a devotional ... by a world class Bible scholar... andhe’s not pandering to anyone’s theology ... and he opens the Bible and lets the Spirit turn chaos into order."
    —Scot McKnight, author of The Jesus Creed: Loving God, Loving Others
