Ordained Before the World: A Catholic Apologetic

Title: Ordained Before the World: A Catholic Apologetic


Author: James Boardman
Description: What is an apologetic? Simply put, an apologetic is an argument meant to persuade. Trial lawyers use apologetics every day to persuade juries and judges to adopt their point of view. But we, too, are exposed to apologetics everyday as we listen to advertising touting one product over another, or as we listen to our lawn care provider explain why we should continue using him to mow our lawn and trim our shrubs instead of a cheaper company down the street. No high theology to be found here! To the contrary, this book arms Catholics, both young and old, with easy to understand basics necessary to defend their Catholic Faith and to comfortably share this faith with others. If you are just beginning your walk as a newly committed Catholic or if you are a Cradle Catholic to whom the basic ways of the faith have become foggy, this book is for you.

Lord, That I May See: Fundamentals of Christian Philosophy

Title: Lord, That I May See: Fundamentals of Christian Philosophy


Author: Matthew Robinson
Description: In Lord, That I May See: Fundamentals of Christian Philosophy, Robinson surveys the most important concepts in classical philosophy and offers the student a solid foundation in reason. In recent times, the Catholic Church has been urging all of the faithful to come to a renewed appreciation and understanding of genuine philosophy.

The pedagogical method of this book is one that widens one's intellectual and spiritual lives in the faith. Beautiful prayers and artwork are offered to help you elevate your hearts and minds to the things of God. Since God has revealed Himself supernaturally by Divine Revelation, and naturally by creation, arguments are employed that make use of those avenues of knowledge of God. Scripture and Tradition are cited to help ground you in the context of the Catholic Church, a Church which is the "pillar and ground of the truth" (1 Tim 3:15).

The Coucils of the Catholic Church: Nicea to Now

Title: The Councils of the Catholic Church: Nicea to Now


Author: Frances Spilman
Description: When you think of the Councils of the Church, you probably imagine a group of Cardinals and Bishops quietly discussing obtuse theological doctrines which have no practical implications. Perhaps a loud cough is heard once in a while but, on the whole, it is a staid affair. Actually, the Councils were anything but impractical or quiet. There were loud disagreements and accusations of heresy. You will read about wars, riots, murders and shipwrecks as well as anti-popes and the suppression of the Templars. The Council members cared deeply about the religious and social problems of their day, arguing for months, sometimes years, in order to find a solution. Each chapter of the book contains a discussion of why the Council was called and what happened at the Council, as well as Biblical references and prayers. You shall meet many saints (from Saint Francis to Saint Nick) as well as a few characters not so holy. Each Council has its own exciting story but each has a unifying theme in the Church's unending mission to guide souls to God.

Title: Finding Happiness: An Introduction to Morality


Author: James Boardman

Understanding the Precepts of the Church

Title: Understanding the Precepts of the Church


Author: Matthew R. Plese
Description: Catholics are bound to observe the laws of the Church, in addition to the Ten Commandments. Many of these additional laws have been long established and observed by the Faithful for centuries. The Precepts of the Church are not all inclusive in terms of the rules for living a Catholic life. There are other laws that Catholics are bound to observe that are not listed in the Precepts of the Church. The Precepts of the Church are the six principal ones, that is, the six ones with which Catholics should ordinary be concerned, since they ordinarily occur in a person's life. Through this book, Mr. Plese studies the precepts in depth to understand the need for the precepts, what the precepts require of us, and why they are so important.

Baptized in Christ: A Catholic Study of the Sacrament of Baptism for Godparents and Parents

Title: Baptized in Christ: A Catholic Study of the Sacrament of Baptism for Godparents and Parents


Author: Fr. James D. Zatalava
Description: In this short book Fr. Zatalava will discuss the necessity for, Scriptures relating to, the history of, and the Rite for the Sacrament of Baptism. Baptism is the first Sacrament of the Faith, and it is the Sacrament by which a person becomes a Christian. It is truly a life-giving Sacrament since it is necessary for our salvation to receive it. Baptism was given to the Church as the Sacrament of initiation into the Faith and for the forgiveness of sins, both Original Sin and all personal sins. Through Baptism we are made sons and daughters of God, and God's very life comes to dwell within us. It is through the graces of Baptism that we are given the foundations of virtue and the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and it is through the graces of Baptism that we live as Christians at all.
