Lenten Healing

LEARN HOW TO OVERCOME SINFUL HABITS DURING LENT

Lenten Healing

Based on the popular spiritual healing program designed by Bob Schuchts and the John Paul II Healing Center, Lenten Healing offers a twist to traditional Lenten fasting: instead of giving up chocolate, give up your sin. This daily Lenten devotional offers a unique approach to fasting, helping you reexamine the psychological and spiritual roots of sin in your life while sharing reflections and prayer exercises for overcoming sinful habits and acquiring virtuous ones.

St. Teresa of Avila

A UNIQUE “BEHIND THE SCENES” LOOK AT ST. TERESA OF AVILA

St. Teresa of Avila

St. Teresa of Avila, one of the most interesting and important figures in the history of the Catholic Church, was also one of the most candid, entertaining, and brilliant correspondents of her century. This selection of letters offers a unique "behind the scenes" look at this extraordinary Doctor of the Church with details of her life not originally meant for the public.

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"
