Rome Sweet Home: Our Journey to Catholicism

Theology of the Icon (2-Volume Set)

By Leonid Ouspensky
The Theology of the Icon includes more than the basic theory of the transfiguration of beauty and the sanctification of art. It is a fundamental element in the entire body of Orthodox Tradition.

He includes an analysis of the flowering of early Russian iconography, tracing its later development and the state of the art today.

No Catholic can be unaware of the crisis in Catholic liturgy. Even priests are often bewildered by the contradictory information put out by liturgical “experts.” This one-of-a-kind book cuts through the confusion because it makes liturgical issues understandable for the laity. “Mass Confusion” empowers priests and laity alike to deal with the “liturgical elite.” It explains what the Church does and doesn’t allow in the liturgy. It gives you answers to your questions on hundreds of liturgical issues, distilled from a mountain of liturgical documents. It silences personal “interpretation” of the Church’s liturgical law. And it documents your right to have Mass celebrated as the Church intended. Best of all, it provides this information in a clear and concise way.

In I’m Not Being Fed: Discovering the Food that Satisfies the Soul, Jeff Cavins explores the reasons why many Catholics have left the Church for evangelical Christianity. He responds to the most commonly-heard complaint of these former Catholics — that they simply were not being “fed” by their Church and that they longed for a more personal, “spiritually nourishing” relationship with Jesus. Chapters include: • I Left the King’s Table • Options in the Desert • Who Do You Say Jesus Is? • The Body that Feeds the Body • True Food for Malnourished Faith After presenting the story of his own return to the Church, Cavins builds a case for the unique character of the Catholic Church as the true Church of Christ. Using the sixth chapter of John’s gospel as a foundation, Jeff eloquently shows the biblical basis of the Catholic belief in the Eucharist.

Celebrating the Holy Eucharist

By Francis Cardinal Arinze
Cardinal Arinze, the greatly esteemed African churchman and head of the Vatican congregation for worhsip and sacraments, elucidates the Church’s faith in the Eucharist as the high point of her public worship and the source and summit of Christian life. In Celebrating the Holy Eucharist, Cardinal Arinze emphasizes that the priest is ordained, first and foremost, to celebrate the Sacrifice of the Mass and other liturgical rites. The priest “finds himself at the highest moment of his vocation when ‘in persona Christi’ he celebrates the Eucharistic Sacrifice.” The laity also finds in the Mass “the fount and apex of their entire Christian lives.” The Eucharist gives “life, meaning and direction” to all of their works and actions. Cardinal Arinze shows how the Eucharistic celebration sends the lay faithful out into the world to spread the gospel, giving special mention to the role of the family in the work of evangelization. The Cardinal also discusses in this book the changes in the Mass and other liturgical rites that have taken place during the last forty years. The responsibilities of the diocesan Bishop, the celebrating priest, and the assisting assembly are examined in depth.

Upon This Rock: St.Peter and the Primacy of Rome in Scripture and the Early Church

By Stephen K. Ray
As an Evangelical Protestant, Stephen Ray realized that the real issue dividing Catholics and Protestants was authority. Everything else was secondary to the issue of authority. Protestants accept the authority of the Bible alone, whereas Catholics understand the authority to be residing in the Magisterium, the Scriptures and the Sacred Tradition. Ray goes through the Scriptures and writings from the first five centuries of the early Church to demonstrate that the early Christians had a clear understanding of the primacy of Peter in the See of Rome. He tackles the tough issues in an attempt to expose how the opposition is misunderstanding the Scriptures and history. He uses many Evangelical Protestant scholars and historians to support the Catholic position. This book contains the most complete compilation of Scriptural and Patristic quotations on the primacy of Peter and the Papal office of any book currently available.

Hail, Holy Queen: The Mother of God in the Word of God

By Scott Hahn
A fresh and enlightening new perspective on Mary, Mother of God, and her central importance in the Christian faith, from the author of the highly successful The Lamb’s Supper. In The Lamb’s Supper, Catholic scholar and apologist Scott Hahn explored the relationship between the Book of Revelation and the Roman Catholic Mass, deftly clarifying the most subtle of theological points with analogies and anecdotes from everyday life. In Hail, Holy Queen, he employs the same accessible, entertaining style to demonstrate Mary’s essential role in Christianity’s redemptive message. Most Christians know that the life of Jesus is foreshadowed throughout the Old Testament. Through a close examination of the Bible, as well as the work of both Catholic and Protestant scholars and clergy, Hahn brings to light the small but significant details showing that just as Jesus is the “New Adam,” so Mary is the “New Eve.” He unveils the Marian mystery at the heart of the Book of Revelation and reveals how it is foretold in the very first pages of the Book of Genesis and in the story of King David’s monarchy, which speaks of a privileged place for the mother of the king. Building on these scriptural and historical foundations, Hahn presents a new look at the Marian doctrines: Her Immaculate Conception, Perpetual Virginity, Assumption, and Coronation. As he guides modern-day readers through passages filled with mysteries and poetry, Hahn helps them rediscover the ancient art and science of reading the Scriptures and gain a more profound understanding of their truthfulness and relevance to faith and the practice of religion in the contemporary world.

The Letter & Spirit Project aims to make studies of important themes in Sacred Scripture widely available to students, clergy, and laymen. The Project is sponsored by the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology, of which Scott Hahn is founder and president.

Praying Scripture for a Change: An Introduction to Lectio Divina

By Dr. Tim Gray
Many Christians find prayer difficult and, as a result, do not do much of it. The fact is, many simply do not know how to pray. Even St Paul notes this sad fact when, in Romans 8:26, he says, We do not know how to pray as we ought. In this short book, written for a popular audience by well-known Catholic biblical scholar Dr. Tim Gray, we discover the secret of the saints which can enable us to enter into a lively dialogue with God. Their secret: the ancient art of Lectio Divina (divine, or sacred reading), which is reading, meditating on, and praying the Scriptures. As St. Cyprian notes, Diligently practice prayer and lectio divina. When you pray, you speak with God; when you read [the Scriptures], God speaks to you. Here, we discover that we don t need a mystic gene or divine epiphany to hear God; we simply need to take up the Bible and read.

Frequent Confession presents convincing and strong evidence for the benefits of frequent reception of the sacrament of Penance for the health and growth of the spiritual life of all faithful. “To win the battles of the soul, the best strategy often is to bide one’s time and apply the suitable remedy with patience and perseverance.” So wrote Blessed Josemaria Escriva, the founder of Opus Dei who tirelessly urged the practice of frequent confession for spiritual advancement. The book is divided into two parts. The first shows the purpose and practice of confession from the aspect of confessor penitent. The second examines the many area where confession applies. An extensive introduction was written by Rev. Salvador Ferigle, who as a layman in 1949 began the apostolate of Opus Dei in the U.S. and died in 1997 at 72. The book is newly indexed.

Catholic Christianity: A Complete Catechism of Catholic Beliefs Based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church

By Peter Kreeft
For the first time in 400 years the Catholic Church has authorized an official universal catechism which instantly became an international best-seller, the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Using this official Catechism, the highly-regarded author and professor Peter Kreeft presents a complete compendium of all the major beliefs of Catholicism written in his readable and concise style. Since the Catechism of the Catholic Church was written for the express purpose of grounding and fostering catechisms based on it for local needs and ordinary readers, Kreeft does just that, offering a thorough summary of Catholic doctrine, morality, and worship in a popular format with less technical language. He presents a systematic, organic synthesis of the essential and fundamental Catholic teachings in the light of the Second Vatican Council and the whole of the Church’s Tradition. This book is the most thorough, complete and popular catechetical summary of Catholic belief in print that is based on the universal Catechism.

Salvation

The Salvation Controversy

By James Akin (Recommended by Steve Ray)
Perhaps nothing splits apart Catholics and Protestants like the topic of salvation. The arguments rage over how we’re saved, when we’re saved, and whether we can be assured of salvation. And Protestants fight among themselves as much as they fight with Catholics. No one understands the various arguments better than Catholic Answers’ Jimmy Akin–a former Protestant himself. For the last 15 years, Jimmy has studied the issue of salvation, taking into account Church teachings and the various Protestant interpretations, while focusing primarily on Scripture. And now he’s taken his findings and put them into a noteworthy book, “The Salvation Controversy.” If you want to understand both the Catholic and Protestant positions on salvation–and be equipped to defend the Church’s teachings–there’s no better guide than “The Salvation Controversy.” It’s a complete guide to salvation that no Catholic should be without.

Every Young Man’s Battle: Strategies for Victory in the Real World of Sexual Temptation

By Stephen Arterburn, Fred Stoeker
In this world you’re surrounded by sexual images that open the door to temptation. They’re everywhere–on TV, billboards, magazines, music, the internet–and so easy to access that it sometimes feels impossible to escape their clutches. Yet God expects his children to be sexually pure. So how can you survive the relentless battle against temptation? Here’s powerful ammunition. Steve Arterburn and Fred Stoeker, the authors of the hard-hitting best-seller Every Man’s Battle, now focus on the temptations young single Christian men like you face every day–and they offer workable, biblical strategies for achieving sexual purity. The authors examine the standard of Ephesians 5:3–“there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality”–in a positive and sensitive light. And they explain how an authentic, vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ is the key to victory over temptation. Every Young Man’s Battle will show you how to train your eyes and your mind, how to clean up your thought life, and how to develop a realistic battle plan for remaining pure in today’s sexually soaked culture. As a result, you’ll experience hope–real hope–for living a strong, pure life God’s way
