Those Mysterious Priests, Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
1 Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen Those Mysterious Priests

In this penetrating book written some five years before his death, Sheen explores the duality inherent in the vocation of the modern-day priest: his need to feel, like Christ, the holiness of God that binds him to the Father; and at the same time his need to become a victim, like Christ, for the world's sins. He talks of the priest's role in continuing the incarnation, the passion and the resurrection of Christ; the need for a sense of humor in the priest who must be in the world but not of it; the frustrations he can expect to encounter in the priesthood; Mary as mother and model of the lonely, obedient and chaste priest; the indispensable role of the Holy Hour in the spiritual growth and happiness of the priest. Written with the liveliness, wit and spiritual insight that continue to endear Sheen to millions, Those Mysterious Priests emphasizes the sense of oblation and spirituality that is such an essential part of any effective priesthood in the world today. Once again, Sheen proves himself to be a truly prophetic voice for our times. 349 pp.

Healing the Unaffirmed:   Recognizing Emotional Deprivation Disorder, Conrad W. Baars, M.D. &    Anna A. Terruwe, M.D., Ph.D.
3 Conrad W. Baars, M.D. & Anna A. Terruwe, M.D., Ph.D. Healing the Unaffirmed: Recognizing Emotional Deprivation Disorder

Why do so many patients fail to respond to psychiatric therapy? Because not all disorders are caused by the repression of emotions. The authors have shown convincingly that a specific syndrome develops when a person has been deprived of affirming love. Analytic or solely cognitive or behavioral therapies do not bring lasting healing, or are of no avail in these unaffirmed persons, since they have never repressed their feelings. Anti-depressants, shock therapy, or other therapeutic interventions often only worsen their suffering. What the unaffirmed person needs is affirmation therapy, which entails far more than simply giving "T.L.C." (Tender Loving Care). Rather, this therapy involves the healing of the whole person -- body, mind and spirit. Recognizing emotional deprivation disorder is the first step in correcting, through affirmation, many grave individual and global ills. Authentic affirmation brings about peace, self-confidence and joy. 222 pp.

Born Fundamentalist Born Again Catholic, David B Currie
4 David B Currie Born Fundamentalist Born Again Catholic

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 doctorinal beliefs Catholic and evangelicals hold in common, as well as the key doctrines that separate us, paritcularly the Eucharist, the Pope, and Mary. 215 pages. Highly recommended by Maranatha Catholic Books.

God, Society and the Human Person: The Basics of Catholic Social Teaching, Edward T. Mechmann
6 Edward T. Mechmann God, Society and the Human Person: The Basics of Catholic Social Teaching

Catholic Social Teaching has a rich and venerable tradition reaching back to the very earliest days of the Church and has been expounded by the greatest thinkers in the Church from St. Augustine to St. Thomas Aquinas to Popes Leo XIII and John Paul II. The purpose of this book is to draw together and to organize Catholic social teaching as found in the Catechism of the Catholic Church and other Church documents, and to arrange that teaching according to its major foundational principles and themes. The goal is to provide a reasonable and very readable overview of the social doctrine of the Church along with some examples of its practical application. In this way, the relationship between the social teaching of the Church and other dogmas of the faith may more clearly be seen and its relevance to real problems in the real world made strikingly apparent. 84 pp.

Arise from Darkness, Fr. Benedict Groeschel
7 Fr. Benedict Groeschel Arise from Darkness
i p 0898705258 / 9780898705256 What to Do When Life Doesn't Make Sense
Well-known author, psychologist and priest Fr. Benedict Groeschel draws on his own years of personal experiences in dealing with people's problems, tragedies and "darkness" as he offers help and guidance for any Christian troubled or burdened by life. If you are struggling with fear, anxiety, grief, loss of loved ones, hurt, anger or anything that makes life difficult or the road through it dark, then this book was written for you. Fr. Benedict offers practical suggestions on how to keep going and even grow with the help of God's grace, even when this help seems remote. The Christian response to the problem of evil and suffering began with the cross of Christ. Our answer is inseparable from the cross-from Jesus' own encounter with evil and his triumph over it. In this light, Fr. Benedict recalls some of our most frequently encountered sorrows and griefs: the failure of friends, financial and personal insecurity, the failure of some in the Church, our own inconsistent behaviors and weaknesses, and the death of loved ones. As we examine these painful experiences, he shows that we can find solutions in the Gospel and in the lives of saints, heroes, and very brave ordinary people. "Many guides have been written for people struggling with the mystery of evil. But each generation, each age has its own dark background in front of which the struggle to keep going must be worked out. In every age, men ask 'how am I going to go on to arise from darkness?' It is that which my book will address." —Fr. Benedict Groeschel, CFR "This sensitive and profound book may become the book that can help you most in your own sufferings or that you can give to others when your own words fail." —Ronda Chervin, Ph.D., Author, The Kiss from the Cross "Just the kind of wise guidance we have come to expect from Father Groeschel. It is clear, simple, compassionate, personal, practical, Christ-centered and full of Gospel quotes that come alive in Groeschel's hands." —Peter Kreeft, Author, Making Sense Out of Suffering Fr. Benedict Groeschel, CFR is the director of the Office of Spiritual Development for the New York Archdiocese. He has written numerous books on the spiritual life and pastoral counseling. He is a member of the Franciscans of the Renewal who preach evangelical reform and work with the homeless in the South Bronx. Length: 184 pages Edition: Paperback

O Blessed Night!, Francis Kelly Nemeck, OMI &   Marie Theresa Coombs, Hermit
10 Francis Kelly Nemeck, OMI & Marie Theresa Coombs, Hermit O Blessed Night!

This book provides the "Theological Underpinnings for Recovery from Addiction, Co-dependency and Attachment" by embracing the cross they represent as opposed to trying to avoid pain at any cost. St. John of the Cross and Pierre Teilhard de Chardin both drank passionately from the chalice of suffering in their own lives, and then wrote insightfully on the providential and transforming effect of working through the dark night of suffering wherein -- through faith -- the Lord is encountered beyond the pain, not in spite of it. Recovery is a process of getting in touch with and accepting both one's human reality and the Reality of a Power greater than oneself. In that perspective pain can be faced peacefully and endured with joy. And the darkness can become for the one who suffers a truly Blessed Night!. 184 pp.

Way to Inner Peace, Fulton J. Sheen
12 Fulton J. Sheen Way to Inner Peace

Were St. Francis of Assisi to be asked the way to inner peace, he -- like Archbishop Sheen -- would have undoubtedly pointed to the way of the cross. Humility, love, and service would have been the virtues recommended to pave the way and make the going easier. Sorrow for sins, patience with others, and a healthy sense of humor would be considered almost equally important. In this classic -- written some 50 years ago -- we find many nearly forgotten age-old truths surprisingly and specifically apropos to the needs of our own times. Rich in psychology and richer yet in New Testament spirituality, these pages will provide an invaluable guide to all those who, for whatever reason, are seeking the way to inner peace. 207 pp.

The Battle for Normality, G.J.M. van den Aardweg
13 G.J.M. van den Aardweg The Battle for Normality
ip 0898706149 / 9780898706147 
This book is primarily meant for those homosexuality afflicted persons who seek practical advice in order to change, or, at least, to constructively and responsibly deal with it. It is written with their needs, anxieties, and weaknesses in mind, as Dr. Van den Aardweg has learned them during more than 30 years of therapy with homosexual persons. There is a need for such a practical "guide" because there are very few able therapists who want to help the well-intentioned homosexual to change, and because most existing works on homosexuality are about theory, not about every-day self-therapy. Theoretical subjects are discussed, too, in so far as they are necessary to be able to fight the homosexual inclination, and to refute certain myths. This is a Christian psychological approach and it offers the best opportunities for change. "Rich and insightful. Highly recommended." -Paul Vitz, Ph.D. "Provides a useful, "no-nonsense" guide for self-help therapy. Many readers will be helped by this practical book." - Joseph Nicolosi, Ph.D., Author, Healing Homosexuality Gerard Van den Aardweg has had a private psychotherapeutic practice since 1963 in Holland, specializing in the treatment of homosexuality and marriage problems. He has written for many publications in these fields, and has authored several books on homosexuality. Length: 157 pages Edition: Paperback

Presence and Thought, Hans Urs von Balthasar
14 Hans Urs von Balthasar Presence and Thought
ip 0898705215 / 9780898705218 An Essay on the Religious Philosophy of Gregory of
Von Balthasar presents one of the few serious studies available on the thought of one of the most important, and yet most neglected Fathers of the Church, Gregory of Nyssa. He was the most profound Greek philosopher of the Christian era, a mystic and an incomparable poet whom St. Maximus designated as the "Universal Doctor" and the Second Council of Nicaea declared him "Father of Fathers." Less prolific than Origen, less cultivated than Gregory Nazianzen, less practical than Basil, Gregory of Nyssa nonetheless outstrips them all in the profundity of his thought, for he knew better than anyone how to transpose ideas inwardly from the spiritual heritage of ancient Greece into a Christian mode.

The Christian and Anxiety, Hans Urs von Balthasar
15 Hans Urs von Balthasar The Christian and Anxiety
ip 0898705878 / 9780898705874 
From Luther to Kierkegaard, from Heidegger to Sartre, the theme of anguish has dominated both philosophy and spiritual theology. In our "societies of depression" where individuals confront their own loneliness, this theme has recently regained its intensity. In these dense and luminous pages, he is not content merely to show how much this feeling is profoundly inscribed in the heart and the word of God—from the Psalms to the Gospels—but he enters into intimate dialogue with contemporary thought and in particular its existentialist expression. For Balthasar, the Christian faith does not offer a ready made response, but is simultaneously a journey through the torment of the cross and the liberation from fear by the gift of grace. In the wake of a Bernanos, or a Péguy, Balthasar emphasizes how much confidence in God leads to a hope which is inexhaustible. Length: 160 pages Edition: Paperback

Life Out of Death:   A Thought a Day for the Easter Season, Harold A. Buetow, PhD, JD
16 Harold A. Buetow, PhD, JD Life Out of Death: A Thought a Day for the Easter Season

Jesus' Resurrection celebrates something special never known before or since. To rise from the dead is so far beyond any human concept, and so much solely God's work, that people have always had a hard time trying to comprehend it. In the Nicene Creed we affirm: "I believe in the resurrection of the body and life everlasting." In celebrating Jesus' Resurrection, therefore, we celebrate our own as well. For Christians, the Easter Season--stretching from Easter Sunday to Pentecost-- is "party time," a time of stimulated consciousness, an invitation to penetrate more deeply into this mystery of our faith, and to enjoy, enjoy, enjoy. Easter is a season of "Alleluia!" For centuries joyful Christians were known as "Easter People," and Easter was the principal festival on the Church calendar. These reflections will benefit enormously those who wish to enter more profoundly into the spirit of this joyful season.139 pp.

Dealing with Grief: Theirs and Ours, Jeroid O'Neil Roussell, Jr., D.Min

There are few areas of ministry which require more of the minister from a personal, physical and psychological point of view than that of helping others cope with the often overwhelming emotional impact of death. In these situations, the pastoral caregiver is a transforming presence, a concrete sign of God's unconditional love, sent by Him to be a light and a companion to the dying and their families in their hour of darkness. In these pages, Dr. Roussell offers caregivers a number of practical suggestions for improving their effectiveness and enhancing their personal and spiritual growth as individuals and as professional healthcare providers.140 pp.

Spiritual Dimensions of Self-Esteem, The, John V. Carlson, M.Div.
20 John V. Carlson, M.Div. Spiritual Dimensions of Self-Esteem, The

How we think about and judge ourselves -- our self-esteem -- has its foundation in the positive and negative messages we receive from parents, family members, teachers, peers and various care givers as we grow up. To the extent that we take these messages to heart -- both the good and the bad -- and make them our own determines in no small measure our degree of happiness, the quality of our personal relationships, the contributions we are able to make to society and the world in which we live. The fact that we are made in the image and likeness of God who loves us unconditionally, with all our faults and imperfections -- even to the point of dying on the cross for us -- provides us with a solid basis upon which to build a healthy self-esteem. This spiritual dimension of our lives is explored here in depth. 134 pp
