Excerpt


In Reasons to Believe, Scott Hahn, a convert to Catholicism, explains the "how and why" of the Catholic faith--drawing from Scripture, his own struggles and those of other converts, as well as from everyday life and even natural science. Hahn shows that reason and revelation, as well as nature and the supernatural, are not opposed to one another; rather, they offer complementary evidence that God exists. He is someone, and He has a personality, a personal style, that is discernable and knowable. Hahn leads readers to see that God created the universe with a purpose and a form--a form that can be found in the Book of Genesis and that is there when we view the natural world through a microscope, through a telescope, or through our contact lenses.

At the heart of the book is Hahn's examination of the ten "Keys to the kingdom"--the characteristics of the Church clearly evident in the Scriptures. As the story of creation discloses, the world is a house that has a Father, a palace where the king is really present. God created the cosmos to be a kingdom, and that kingdom is the universal Church, fully revealed by Jesus Christ.

Excerpt


This is the powerful story of Scott and Kimberly Hahn's conversion to Catholicism. Scott embraced Rome first, after deep and careful reflection on scripture and tradition. Kimberly, reluctant at first, later converted as well. Now they travel, speaking and writing about their own spiritual journey from conservative evangelicalism to Roman Catholicism. This book will encourage Catholics to maintain their tradition, and it will challenge Protestants to reexamine their anti-Catholic conviction. In an age when Rome is softening its claim to be the only way to salvation, this book offers a fresh defense of the Catholic church.

Excerpt


Gilbert Keith Chesterton was a self-described pagan at age twelve and totally agnostic by age sixteen. Yet his spiritual journey ultimately led to a personal philosophy of orthodox, biblical Christianity. In 1908, at the age of thirty-five, Chesterton published an account of his experiences--witty, intellectual, and personal writings later collected under the title Orthodoxy. Over the years, Orthodoxy has not lost its force as a timeless argument for the simple plausibility of traditional Christianity. This edition includes a foreword by Philip Yancey, who, like C.S. Lewis and other leading Christian writers, found this book to be pivotal in his Christian experience and credits Chesterton with helping to revive and define his faith.

Excerpt


In this deeply moving narrative, Thomas Howard describes his pilgrimage from Evangelicalism (which he loves and reveres as the religion of his youth) to liturgical Christianity. He soon afterward became a Roman Catholic. He describes Evangelicalism with great sympathy and then examines more formal, liturgical worship with the freshness of someone discovering for the first time what his soul had always hungered for. This is a book of apologetics without polemics. Non-Catholics will gain an appreciation of the formal and liturgical side of Catholicism. Catholics will see with fresh eyes the beauty of their tradition. Worship, prayer, the Blessed Virgin, the Mass, and the liturgical year are taken one after the other, and what may have seemed routine and repetitive suddenly comes to life under the enchanting wand of Howard's beautiful prose.

The Everlasting ManThe Everlasting Man

Add To Cart

Excerpt


Beginning with an insightful study on the nature of man, Chesterton argues that the central character in history is Jesus Christ, the everlasting Man. No other explanation of the world fits the evidence. Exploding the stale formula of Christ as the pale product of human imagination, he triumphantly asserts the glory and unassailable logic of Christ as the God who, in the fullness of time, steps into his own creation. Displaying all of his brilliant synthesis and devastating irony, The Everlasting Man is perhaps Chesterton's best book. C.S. Lewis who cited The Everlasting Man as one of the principle books in his conversion said, "I read Chesterton's Everlasting Man and for the first time saw the whole Christian outline of history set out in a form that seemed to me to make sense."

One Lord, One Faith is the classic apologetic work of Monsignor Vernon Johnson, once an Anglican minister, now a Roman Catholic convert. This is his story of how a chance encounter with the life and writings of St. Therese of Lisieux caught him off guard and caused him to re-assess the doctrines of the Catholic Church. Written as an explanation to friends and parishioners of why he decided to leave his own church and become a Catholic, he uses mainly Scripture to make a compelling biblically based argument for the authenticity of the Catholic faith. Paperback.

Excerpt


David Currie was raised in a devout Christian family whose father was a fundamentalist preacher and both parents teachers at Moody Bible Institute. Currie's whole upbringing was immersed in the life of fundamentalist Protestantism - theology professors, seminary presidents and founders of evangelical mission agencies were frequent guests at his family dinner table. Currie himself received a degree from Trinity International University and studied in the Masters of Divinity program at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. This book was written as an explanation to his fundamentalist and evangelical friends and family about why he became a Roman Catholic. Currie presents a very lucid, systematic and intelligible account of the reasons for his conversion to the ancient Church that Christ founded. He gives a detailed discussion of the important theological and doctrinal beliefs Catholic and evangelicals hold in common, as well as the key doctrines that separate us, particularly the Eucharist, the Pope, and Mary.
