A History of the Church in 100 Objects

THE "STUFF" THAT HELPS TELL THE STORY OF CHRISTIANITY

In this unique, rich, and eye-catching book, popular Catholic author and EWTN host Mike Aquilina, together with his writer-daughter Grace, tells the Christian story through the examination of 100 objects and places. Some, like Michelangelo's Pietà, are priceless works of art. Others, like a union membership pin, don’t hold much monetary value. But through each of them, Aquilina offers a memorable and rewarding look at the history of the Church.

Check out the table of contents for a list of all 100 objects and read the book to discover their significance.

Why I Am Catholic (and You Should Be Too)

A COMPELLING VISION OF THE CHURCH FOR FORMER CATHOLICS

Why I Am Catholic (and You Should Be Too)

With atheism on the rise and millions tossing off religion, why would anyone consider the Catholic Church? Brandon Vogt, a bestselling author and the content director for Bishop Robert Barron's Word on Fire Catholic Ministries, shares his passionate search for truth, a journey that culminated in the realization that Catholicism was right about a lot of things, maybe even everything. His persuasive case for the faith reveals a vision of Catholicism that has answers our world desperately needs and reminds those already in the Church what they love about it.

God Is Not Nice

A RESPONSE TO ANYONE WHO SAYS THAT GOD IS BORING

God Is Not Nice

Ulrich L. Lehner reintroduces Christians to the true God—not the polite, easygoing, divine therapist who doesn’t ask much of us, but the Almighty God who is unpredictable, awe-inspiring, and demands our entire lives.  Stripping away the niceties with a sling blade, Lehner shows that God is more strange and beautiful than we imagine, and wants to know and transform us in the most intimate way.

Read the introduction: "An Image of God That Isn't True"

The Friendship Project

A CATHOLIC WOMAN'S GUIDE TO FAITH-FILLED FRIENDSHIPS

The Friendship Project

In The Friendship Project, Michele Faehnle and Emily Jaminet explore the cardinal and theological virtues with an eye toward friendship. Focusing on faith, hope, love, prudence, gratitude, loyalty, generosity, and prayerfulness, they help us answer questions such as, “What does it mean to be women of hope, and how does that change our lives and make us more compassionate friends during difficult times?” and “How does prayerfulness teach us how to listen to and talk with both God and our friends, which helps us reach out to those we love?”

The Twelve Steps and the Sacraments

INTEGRATE THE TWELVE STEPS AND CATHOLICISM

The Twelve Steps and the Sacraments

In the first book to directly integrate the Twelve Steps with the practice of Catholicism, Scott Weeman, founder and director of Catholic in Recovery, pairs his personal story with compassionate straight talk to show Catholics how to bridge the commonly felt gap between the Higher Power of twelve-step programs and the merciful God that he rediscovered in the heart of the sacraments. In The Twelve Steps and the Sacraments, Weeman candidly tackles the struggle he and other addicts have with getting to know intimately the unnamed Higher Power of recovery.

The Spirit of Simplicity

A TREASURE OF MONASTIC SPIRITUALITY

The Spirit of Simplicity

Few people have ever seen or heard of The Spirit of Simplicity: it has been hidden for almost seventy years after quietly being published by the Abbey of Gethsemani in 1948.  Anonymously translated and annotated by a young monk named Thomas Merton, the book’s author—who also is not mentioned by name in the original edition—is Jean-Baptiste Chautard, the famous French Cistercian whose only other book, The Soul of the Apostolate, has been a favorite of modern saints and popes, including Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI.
