  • Butterflies Under Our Hats

    Butterflies Under Our Hats

    By Sandy Eisenberg Sasso, illustrated by Joani Keller Rothenberg

    Folklore has been used throughout history to teach and inspire- this new release in paperback will do just that. Inspired by a Jewish folktale, this charming original story begins: Once there was a town called Chelm where there was no luck. If something could go wrong, it did. The roofs of the houses always leaked. The sidewalks were cracked. The gardens grew only weeds. Nothing was ever right. But just wait and find hope with best-selling author Sandy Eisenberg Sasso (nearly 500,000 copies of her books are in print).

    Sandy Eisenberg Sasso is the best-selling author of In God's Name, God's Paintbrush, Creation's First Light, and other books. She is a rabbi and director of the Religion, Spirituality and Arts Initiative at Butler University in Indianapolis. Joani Rothenberg is the illustrator of several children's books. She also lives in Indianapolis.

  • Chance or Purpose? by Schoenborn

    Chance or Purpose? by Schoenborn

    Cardinal Christoph Schonborn’s article on evolution and creation in The New York Times launched an international controversy. Critics charged him with biblical literalism and “creationism". 184 pages.
     
    In this book, Cardinal Schönborn responds to his critics by tackling the hard questions with a carefully reasoned ""theology of creation"". Can we still speak intelligently of the world as “creation"" and affirm the existence of the Creator, or is God a “delusion""? How should an informed believer read Genesis? If God exists, why is there so much injustice and suffering? Are human beings a part of nature or elevated above it? What is man's destiny? Is everything a matter of chance or can we discern purpose in human existence?
     
    In his treatment of evolution, Cardinal Schönborn distinguishes the biological theory from “evolutionism"", the ideology that tries to reduce all of reality to mindless, meaningless processes. He argues that science and a rationally grounded faith are not at odds and that what many people represent as “science"" is really a set of philosophical positions that will not withstand critical scrutiny.
     
    Chance or Purpose? directly raises the philosophical and theological issues many scientists today overlook or ignore. The result is a vigorous, frank dialogue that acknowledges the respective insights of the philosopher, the theologian and the scientist, but which calls on them to listen and to learn from each another.

  • Christ: The Ideal of the Monk

    Christ: The Ideal of the Monk

    By Columba Marmion, OSB

    Columba Marmion believes that Christian discipleship means imitating Christ the Monk no matter your walk or way oflife. Christ is the divine model presented by God himself , the ideal of all holiness. By faith, we accept this holiness into our lives—but we must also allow Christ Jesus to become "the very life of our souls."

    This book, anabridged edition of the original, explores how this is possible by examining the writings of St. Paul and St. John in the light of the Gospels and, offering spiritual understanding to any Christian's religious life. Christ, the Ideal of the Monk sold 100,000 copies when it was published 90 years ago, one of many bestselling books written by the popular Irish-born monk, Columba Marmion, OSB, (1858-1923). He was beatified by Pope John Paul II in 2000.
