  • 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

  • A Path Revealed

    A Path Revealed

    By Carlen Maddux

    Just days after turning fifty, Martha Maddux, a spirited mother and civic activist, was told she had Alzheimer’s disease. She and husband Carlen felt as though they’d been shoved out of a plane 10,000 feet up, withnothing to grab but themselves. A Path Revealed is not about the falloutfrom an insidious disease that extended over seventeen years. It is the story of a path of hope emerging during the darkest hours - a path that lifted Carlen and Martha above the devastating symptoms of this disease.

    Carlen traveled with Martha to the backwoods of Kentucky, where the quiet presence of a Catholic nun revealed a hidden path. He was forced to slow down as he traced this path halfway around the world to Australia, retreated weekends to a monastery, embraced meditation, and landed all alone in Thomas Merton’s cabin.

    This story conveys a message of hope and joy in the midst of an almost overwhelming tragedy.

  • All God's Angels

    All God's Angels

    By Martin Shannon, CJ

    There is an entire realm of divine activity that human eyes cannotperceive—at least not without God's unveiling grace. The angels belong to this invisible world.

    Fr. Martin Shannon, CJ, pulls back the veil between heaven and earth with biblical stories, meditations, and sacred art on the role of heavenly messengers and their work in our lives. Angels are servants of love, doing God's bidding with a theology of burning love. God seeks out his servants, and once he has our attention, he draws us closer, long enough for the sparks of his glory to reach us and ignite a flame in our own souls. This is the work of angels.

    This book is a series of reflections on the angelic visitations that are recorded in the Bible, in both the Old and New Testaments. Each entry includes a Scripture reading, an artistic image, a reflection and questions for consideration or discussion.

    "What a beautiful, beautiful book this is. We modern readers are materialists, mostly, and we tend to minimize the role of angels or metally edit them out of the biblical scenes. Martin Shannon restores these powerful messengers and helpers to their place in all the Scriptures and in all our lives."
    —Mike Aquilina, author of Angels of God: The Bible, the Church and the Heavenly Hosts

    "This book explores a subject that's usually too much for words—from the realm of the unseen, the invisible, as we affirm in the creed. But Shannon achieves a sparkling kind of clarity and inspiration. I suggest you not begin to read this book unless you arewilling to believe."

  • Angels for Kids

    Angels for Kids

    By Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle

    Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle featured on EWTN Sunday Night Prime with Fr. Andrew Apostoli speaking about Angels - Sunday, Nov. 9 The invisible world of angels is so often overlooked, though it has been present since before the dawn of Creation, offering attentive service and protection to humankind. Based on Catholic teaching, Angels for Kids offers proof of the true existence of angels while dispelling prevalent contemporary myths.

    This inspiring book will open the eyes and hearts of youth and their families to a greater awareness of the unseen world, as well as provide warm encouragement to keep company with the incredible angelic friends who unceasingly glorify God and who have been a significant part of salvation history; protecting Jesus throughout His life, announcing heaven's plans, and guiding and protecting the faithful. A chapter of special prayers to the angels completes the book.

    "Angels are our protectors,companions, and God's messengers. In Angels for Kids,Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle shares the important role they play in our lives in language that is compelling and at the same time accessible for little souls. Buy this book for your kids, savor some reading time along with them, andyou'll be amazed by how much you'll learn too!"
    Lisa M. Hendey , Author of A Book ofSaints for Catholic Moms and founder of www.CatholicMom.com

    All children should grow up knowing the companionship and powerful help of the holy angels. All children should grow up knowing the truth that this book teaches. It makes for a happier, more confident life. God created the angels to serve us as they glorify Him. We show our gratitude by enjoying their friendship, and Donna-Marie tells us how.
    Mike Aquilina Author, Angels of God, A Year with the Angels, and Entertaining Angels

    "What a delightful little book! Angels For Kids is wonderful in its simplicity and, yet, profound in its content and impact. Children of all ages will greatly benefit from this little catechesis on the angels. This book is truly a gem, containing both beautiful prayers and childlike insights, and Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle has outdone herself in offering to all God's children this angelic treasury!"
    Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, STL Author, Under the Mantle: Marian Thoughts from a 21st Century Priest

    " Science calls us to believe in the unseeable — black holes in space, which cannot ever be seenbecause they absorb all light before it can reflect back to an observer. They believe in black holes because of anomalous behavior in space. So also, Christians, like Jews, Muslims, and many other religious people around the world and throughout history believe in angels, not only because of anomalous behaviors we experience in life's events but also because of God's Revelation in Scripture. We do well to introduce children to these facts, along with astronomical facts, to prepare them for a mature spiritual life. This book is such an introduction, and parents might be reminded of their own angels as they read with theirchildren."
    Fr. Mitch Pacwa,S.J.

    "Angels for Kids by Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle surveys the whole Bible in a touching way . Thebook reminds its young readers that they are always lovingly cared for by God and protected from every kind of harm."

  • Attaining Salvation -  by St. Alphonsus Liguori

    Attaining Salvation - by St. Alphonsus Liguori

    The promise of Eternal life has been a clarion call to the Saints for centuries, rousing them to action and heroic virtue. They knew that, compared with Eternity, this life is but a shadow. We must seek the same destination as the Saints in the midst of a world filled with amusements and vanities that constantly threaten our journey to Heaven. St. Alphonsus Liguori's Attaining Salvation is a timeless, priceless compass for that journey. Written when the great Doctor of the Church was 77 years old, this treasury of reflections shines with the mature learning of a brilliant mind and a life filled with the study and service of God. With 45 short chapters filled with provocative Scripture quotes, this book is at once challenging and easy to understand. It can be read a little at a time or all at once with equal benefit. The chapters cover a wide range of topics, including The Thought of Eternity, We Are Pilgrims on Earth, I Must One Day Die, Necessity of Mental Prayer, The Mercy of God, Detachment from Creatures, Lukewarmness and Purity of Intention. Attaining Salvation is a beautiful gem that will instruct and inspire every reader because it is written with the commanding insight of one of the Church's great saints. Its words do not just feed the intellect; they nurture the soul. It is St. Alphonsus Liguori at his best. St. Alphonsus Liguori was born in 1696 to Neapolitan nobility at Marianella, Italy. He became a recognizable lawyer after going through law school at the age of sixteen, but later decided to leave law in favor of giving his salvation more attention. Alphonsus joined the Oratory of St. Philip Neri as a seminarian and was ordained in 1726, when he was thirty. The homilies he gave had the special ability of converting those who had fallen away from the faith. He also founded the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer, and authored such works as The Glories of Mary, The True Spouse of Jesus Christ, Attaining Salvation, The Blessed Virgin Mary, Preparation for Death Abridged, What Will Hell Be Like?, The Twelve Steps to Holiness and Salvation, and The Way of the Cross. After being a bishop for over a decade, St. Alphonsus Liguori died on the first of August, 1787. He was canonized by Pope Gregory XVI in 1839, and declared a Doctor of the Church in 1871. His feast is celebrated on August 1.

  • Behold Your Mother, Tim Staples

    Behold Your Mother, Tim Staples

    From the cross Jesus gave us his mother to be our mother, too: a singularly holy model, consoler, and intercessor for our spiritual journey. Yet most Protestants—and too many Catholics—don’t understand the role that God wants her to play in our lives.

    In Behold Your Mother, Tim Staples takes you through the Church’s teachings about the Blessed Virgin Mary, showing their firm Scriptural and historical roots and dismantling the objections of those who mistakenly believe that Mary competes for the attention due Christ alone.

    Combining the best recent scholarship with a convert’s in-depth knowledge of the arguments, Staples has assembled the most thorough and useful Marian apologetic you’ll find anywhere.

    He also shows how all the Marian doctrines are relevant—even essential—to a salvific faith in Jesus. From her divine maternity to her perpetual virginity, from her Immaculate Conception to her Assumption, the Church’s core teachings about Mary are intertwined with the mysteries of Christ. In a word, Mary matters.

    Read Behold Your Motherand find out just how much.
