Origin of the Human Species, Dennis Bonnette
3 Dennis Bonnette Origin of the Human Species
ip 1932589007 / 9781932589009 
This valuable study examines the classical Darwinian and neo-Darwinian views of evolution, as well as the critiques of these ideas presented by opponents of philosophical naturalism and atheism. The author approaches the subject as a Christian philosopher, reflecting on the evidence of contemporary science using the philosophy of St. Thomas Aquinas. With foreword by the noted Intelligent Design proponent Michael Behe. "Using the tools of philosophy, Professor Bonnette investigates the origin of true humanity. Along the way, he considers the questions of animal intelligence, the philosophical meaning of the species concept, Adam and Eve, and more. His demonstration that the standard evolution story is compatible with Christianity makes his conclusion that the evolution story itself may be shaky all the more impressive." --Michael J. Behe, Ph.D., Author, Darwin's Black Box Professor of Biological Sciences, Lehigh University, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania "Bonnette writes from a Christian and sometimes specifically Catholic perspective, and obviously strives to be fair to those with whom he disagrees, except for the most dogmatic proponents of scientistic materialism, whom he effectively skewers." -- First Things Length: 266 pages Edition: Paperback

The Final Hour, Michael Brown
10 Michael Brown The Final Hour
fp 1880033038 / 9781880033036 The Century of Good Versus Evil
The Reports come from deep in the former Soviet Union, where towering apparitions of Jesus and Mary seemd to announce the fall of Communism; from the damp, windswept peat of Ireland, where visions are given of the Crucifixion;from war-torn Yugoslavia, where the Virgin has appeared since 1981;and from a mountainside in Venezuela where the sun pulses and spins and trhrows off colors of great splendor. During the past centuray, and especially the last ten years, we on earth have been experiencing a major supernatural episode. Report of unusual events, spiritual events, are coming from every habitable continent. In Europe and Asia, in nicaragua and the Middle East, in Aficica and Arizona, are accounts of an apparitional woman calling herself the Blessed Virgin Mary who appears to visionaries and gives them inpiration, instructions, and messages, including warnings about the future of the World. Since 1830 these messages have forewarned about an evil era and the possible onset of the "end times". There are also allusions to the Anti-Christ. Where these apparitions have occurred, how they relate to our unusual century, and what they have to say about mankind's fate are the subject of this book. Whether you're a believer or dis-believer, Catholic or Protestant, Gentile, or Jew, you are about to encounter a series of unearthly events-call the alleged events-unlike any reported in 2,000 years. Highly recommmended by Maranatha Catholic books. 355 pages. This has been one of our best sellers and still is.

Snakebite Letters, Peter Kreeft
11 Peter Kreeft Snakebite Letters
ip 0898707218 / 9780898707212 
Taking his cue from the new literary genre invented by C. S. Lewis in Screwtape Letters, Peter Kreeft has gathered together fifteen spicy letters from Satan's agents below that allow the reader to spy into Hell's inter-office communication. Now that it is becoming more and more obvious that we are at war--not only cultural but spiritual war--it is also more necessary to understand our diabolical enemy and his strategy. Combining satire, humor and devilish insights, these fifteen letters from Snakebite to his trainee, Braintwister, provide a complete Satanic strategy for corrupting American society, public and private morality, and the Church. Focusing especially on the critical areas of sex, media, liturgy, theology and religious education, these letters reveal the inroads that Screwtape's satanic American counterparts of the 90s have made into subverting our modern culture. The Koran says: "Before shooting the arrow of truth, dip it in honey." This genre of devilish correspondence allows serious this-worldly social criticism to take the form of witty other-worldly letters. Length: 123 pages Edition: Paperback

God's Revolution, Pope Benedict XVI
12 Pope Benedict XVI God's Revolution
ip 1586171453 / 9781586171452 World Youth Day and other Cologne Talks
Benedict XVI continues to astound people. In Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, they were told, the world was getting "God's Rottweiler" as Pope. Now, after Benedict's first encyclical, Deus Caritas Est or "God is Love", many people are wondering if he isn't really the "Love Pope." God's Revolution by Benedict XVI (Ignatius Press, 2006), the collection of his World Youth Day talks and other addresses in Cologne, only adds to the amazement. Thoughtful readers will discover in its author far more than they bargained for. It's August, 2005. The newly elected Benedict XVI returns to his homeland, Germany, for World Youth Day-the spectacular event created by his popular predecessor, Pope John Paul II. All eyes are on the German pope in Cologne. "Will he relate to young people as John Paul II did?" The zealous loving welcome of more than a million young people provides the answer. Benedict XVI pulls it off-in his own way, with his own style, without missing a beat. His encounters with young people are magical, even mystical. His message—a straightforward presentation of the Christian faith aimed at answering the perennial questions of young people: Who am I? Where am I going? Is there Someone who can help? How can I make a difference in the world? Benedict XVI's answers to these questions all point to Jesus Christ and his teaching. He urges young people not to think that following Jesus requires abandoning anything of real worth. "Christ takes from you nothing that is beautiful and great," he declares. He dares young people to become "radicals"-to be part of "God's revolution." To commit themselves without reservation to Jesus Christ. "Only from God does true revolution come," he declares, "the definitive way to change the world." "It is not ideologies that save the world, but only a return to the living God, our Creator, the guarantor of our freedom; the guarantor of what is really good and true," Benedict says. But God's Revolution also warns against abusing faith in God: "There are many who speak of God: some even preach hatred and perpetuate violence in God's Name. So it is important to discover the true face of God." "In Jesus Christ," the Pope declares, "who allowed his heart to be pierced for us, the true face of God is seen." God's Revolution isn't only for young people, for Catholics alone or even only for Christians. Benedict XVI's thoughtful and inspiring messages to the Jewish and Muslim communities in Germany are included. Speaking in a synagogue in Cologne, Benedict urges Jews and Christians to grow closer to one another. He recalls the horrors of the Holocaust and warns against "new signs of anti-Semitism." As he commemorates the sixtieth anniversary of the liberation from the Nazi death camps, the Pope's words are especially poignant: as a teenager, Benedict XVI was forced to join the Hitler Youth, against his will and that of his anti-Nazi parents. Benedict speaks to representatives of Muslims in Germany of the common faith in one God that Christians and Muslims share. He acknowledges how some Muslim leaders have rejected terrorism. Yet he adds: "Those who instigate and plan these attacks evidently wish to poison out relations and destroy trust, making use of all means, including religion, to oppose every attempt to build a peaceful and serene life together." God's Revolution also addresses Protestant Christians. Coming from the land of the Reformer Martin Luther, Benedict knows Protestant concerns. He presents Catholic teaching in a way that underscores Catholics and Protestants' common Christian commitment. "Together we confess that Jesus Christ is God and Lord," he states, "together we acknowledge him as the one mediator between God and man (cf. 1 Tim 2:5), and we emphasize together that we are members of his Body." To the German Catholic leaders he urges renewed efforts to present Christ and Christianity to the modern world. While challenging them to respect people's search for the truth, the Pope call on them to be true to the Christian message: "We must teach patience, discernment, realism, but without false compromises, so as not to water down the Gospel!" He asks the bishops to find new ways to address young people, the future of the Catholic Church. In short, Benedict XVI issues a clarion call for all people to join "God's Revolution." Some key issues raised by God's Revolution: * Where is Benedict XVI taking the Catholic Church? * What is the Pope's view of religion's place in the modern world? * Youth and the future of the Catholic Church * Do Catholics think Jesus is the only Savior? * Catholic-Evangelical Protestant Relations * Has an "intolerant, dogmatic" Joseph Ratzinger changed into a sympathetic, fair-minded "Benedict XVI", the "Love Pope"? * Catholic-Jewish Relations * Christian-Muslim Relations * Is Christianity a "religion of rules" or a "way of love"Length: 110 pages Edition: Hardcover

The Death Of Evolution, Wallace Johnson
16 Wallace Johnson The Death Of Evolution
The Death Of Evolution. Mr. Johnston confesses that he used to be a believer in Evolution. But reading a book on the subject opened his eyes, and after much study he wrote this present book. He gives both scientific findings and Catholic teaching to show that the theory of Evolution is incompatible with both Catholic teaching and common sense. His reason for studying Evolution, as he quotes one eminent writer, is that "Every attack on the Christian Faith made today has, as its basis, the doctrine of Evolution." Impr. 204 pg

Science and Evidence For Design in the Universe, Wethersfield Institute
17 Wethersfield Institute Science and Evidence For Design in the Universe
ip 0898708095 / 9780898708097 
Michael Behe, William Dembski, Stephen Meyer As progress in science continues to reveal unimagined complexities, three scientists revisit the difficult and compelling question of the origin of our universe. As mathematician, biochemist, and philosopher of science, they explore the possibility of developing a reliable method for detecting an intelligent cause and evidence for design at the origin of life. In the process, they present a strong case for opening and pursuing a fruitful exchange between science and theology. Mathematician William Dembski, author of The Design Inference, first argues that new developments in the information sciences make intelligent design objectively and scientifically detectable—he identifies the signs of design. Next, philosopher of science, Stephen Meyer, and biochemist Michael Behe, author of Darwin's Black Box, argue that these signs are now clearly evident in both the architecture of the universe and the features of living systems. Other essays by the authors defend the scientific status of the theory of intelligent design and show how that theory supports traditional religious belief without necessarily "proving" the existence of God. In a concluding essay, Michael Behe responds to critics of his best selling book, Darwin's Black Box, thus bringing readers up-to-date on the status of the contemporary design argument in biology.
