In short, straight-forward, and unsentimental chapters, Kreeft covers all the key areas for understanding and developing that intimate form of communication with our Creator that we call prayer. He covers such areas as the necessity of prayer, various motives and methods, steps, patience, suffering, sin, faith, and grace.

Bible Basics for Catholics

Bible Basics for Catholics

From biblical scholar Dr. John Bergsma — two-time "Teacher of the Year" from Franciscan University of Steubenville, OH — comes this fresh, fun, and authentically Catholic introduction to the "big picture" of salvation history.

This overview of the Bible is based on Bergsma's widely popular introduction to theology course at Franciscan University of Steubenville. Bergsma combines sound theology, academic expertise, pastoral wisdom, and an endearing playfulness to draw readers into the connection between the great stories of the Bible and salvation in Jesus.

Saint John Paul The Great - Book

Saint John Paul The Great - Book

A French novelist once wrote, “Tell me what you love, and I will tell you who you are.” Although there are countless ways to study Saint John Paul the Great, the most direct route is by entering the man’s heart.

Discover the five greatest loves of Saint John Paul II, through remarkable unpublished stories about him from bishops, priests who organized his papal pilgrimages, his students in Poland, Swiss Guards, and others. Mining through a mountain of papal resources, Jason Evert has uncovered the gems and now presents the Church a treasure chest brimming with the jewels of the saint’s life. Rekindle your own faith by learning what (and who) captivated the heart of this great saint.

 

"This book has provided me with spiritual insights that I am certain will stay with me for years to come. I highly recommend it every chance I get!" Tim - Downer's Grove. IL

Her highly anticipated book, Something Other Than God, is now available in an audio book format.



 

An incredibly honest and open search for truth brought atheist Jennifer Fulwiler right into the arms of God as He was waiting patiently for her in the Catholic Church! We all should follow her lead! Julie- Sterling, VA

Meet Your Mother - Book

MARIAN THEOLOGY MADE EASY! 

Ever wonder why so many people pay so much attention to Mary, the Mother of Jesus? From the most ancient traditions of Mary in Christianity to the “Hail Mary” pass in American football, the Mother of Jesus has pervaded most world cultures for the last two thousand years. 

But could the Mother of Jesus also be your mother? 

 

Dr. Mark Miravalle gave astounding information regarding our Blessed Mother. Having been just received into the Catholic Church this past Easter Vigil (2014), and having taken her name, Maria, as my Confirmation name, I am overjoyed at how much there is to know about her. This information, given so intelligently and clearly by Dr. Miravalle, has served to affirm the recent powerful answers that I have personally received as a result of my petitions to the Blessed Mother. I also appreciated his specific encouragements, the suggestions of prayers, Novenas, and even petitions to the Pope, on behalf of world peace through consecration to Mary. He helped to make her more real to me. Francesca - Stone Ridge, NY
