The Proverbs Explained – A Blueprint for Christian Living
Acquiring wisdom is both a human task and a divine gift. Wisdom aims at the formation of character, and there is no better guide than the Book of Proverbs. The Proverbs teach us how to be wise and self-controlled, and how to do what is honest, right and fair. Because each Proverb is true in a certain sense and applicable in a certain way, Fr. Pacwa helps you relate each Proverb to your particular state in life as well as to your own spiritual journey. The message of Proverbs is simple, yet difficult to live out. Read these pages, and you’ll come to understand the practical side of righteousness, and you’ll begin to grow in wisdom through patience, prayer, and God’s grace.

Architects of the Culture of Death0 out of 5
In scholarly, yet reader-friendly prose, DeMarco and Wiker examine the roots of the Culture of Death by introducing 23 of its architects, including Ayn Rand, Charles Darwin, Karl Marx, Jean-Paul Sartre, Alfred Kinsey, Margaret Sanger, Jack Kevorkian, and Peter Singer. This is not a book without hope. The personalism of John Paul II is an illuminating thread that runs through Architects, serving as a hopeful antidote.
The Belief of Catholics0 out of 5
While Belief of Catholics deals extensively with Protestantism, its target is more the unchurched or lightly-churched modern who, if he gives any thought at all to Catholicism, thinks it mildly foreign. The author Ronald Knox, one of the most influential British convert-writers of the 20th century, discusses “the truths Catholics hold”, “the rules Catholics acknowledge”, “the strength Catholics receive”, and “the ambitions Catholics honour” but also that God really does exist, that His existence matters, and that only knowledge of Him and obedience to Him can lead to answers to the questions that haunt everyone.
Crossing the Tiber0 out of 5
An exhilarating conversion story of Steve Ray, a devout Baptist, who relates how he overcame his hostility to the Catholic Church by a combination of serious Bible study and vast research of the writings of the early Church Fathers. In addition to a moving account of their conversion that caused Ray and his wife to “cross the Tiber” to Rome, he offers an in-depth treatment of Baptism and the Eucharist in Scripture and the ancient Church. It contains perhaps the most complete compilation of biblical and patristic quotations and commentary available on Baptism and the Eucharist, as well as a detailed analysis of Sola Scriptura and Tradition.
Evangelical Catholicism0 out of 5
Drawing on thirty years of experience throughout the Catholic world, from its humblest parishes to its highest levels of authority, George Weigel proposes a deepening of faith-based and mission-driven Catholic reform that touches every facet of Catholic life-from the episcopate and the papacy to the priesthood and the consecrated life; from the renewal of the lay vocation in the world to the redefinition of the Church’s engagement with public life; from the liturgy to the Church’s intellectual life.
