Saints for Our Times/Santos Para Hoy explores in detail four of the leaders who led the Church’s rebirth from the ashes of Renaissance decadence and the turbulence and confusion caused by the Protestant Reformation. The saints of the Catholic Reformation show us just how powerful—and beautiful—is the human heart’s free response to God’s generous grace.

Dive deeper into the lives of four beloved saints: 

•  St. Ignatius of Loyola
•  St. Francis Xavier
•  St. Teresa of Avila
•  St. John of the Cross

Bestselling author of Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharistcasts new light on the Virgin Mary, illuminating her role in the Old and New Testaments.

Are Catholic teachings on Mary really biblical? Or are they the "traditions of men"? Should she be called the "Mother of God," or just the mother of Jesus? Did she actually remain a virgin her whole life or do the "brothers of Jesus" refer to her other children? By praying to Mary, are Catholics worshipping her? And what does Mary have to do with the quest to understand Jesus?
In Jesus and the Jewish Roots of Mary, Dr. Pitre takes readers step-by-step from the Garden of Eden to the Book of Revelation to reveal how deeply biblical Catholic beliefs about Mary really are. Dr. Pitre uses the Old Testament and Ancient Judaism to unlock how the Bible itself teaches that Mary is in fact the new Eve, the Mother of God, the Queen of Heaven and Earth, and the new Ark of the Covenant.

St. Teresa of Calcutta was a woman known and loved for her tender work among the poorest of the poor. Behind her drive and desire to serve Christ’s poor was a profound understanding of the thirst of God for man, and man’s thirst for God. This guided meditation on Scripture and the teaching of Mother Teresa will lead those who read it into the heart of the mystery of God’s thirst for souls, and how man can meet the Lord’s thirst. Fr. Joseph Langford, an intimate friend of Mother Teresa’s and a co-founder with her of the Missionary of Charity Fathers, leads the reader into Mother Teresa’s love of God, and helps foster the love of God in the heart of the reader.

Divided into seven main sections, these meditations will provoke prayer on:

– The Dynamics of Thirst

– Prayer as Thirst

– Our Lady’s Example in Meeting God’s Thirst

– Thirst in the Service of God

– Sharing in the Thirst of Christ

– Jesus as the Incarnation of God’s Thirst

– Satiated Thirst

I Thirst provides an opportunity to spend a few minutes every day with Mother Teresa and the thirst of our Lord. It provides an opportunity to grow in intimacy, and to meet the thirst of God with our own thirst for him.

Spanish - Nacido Fundamentalista, Nacido de Nuevo Católico

Spanish - Nacido Fundamentalista, Nacido de Nuevo Católico

"David Currie ha escrito lo que puede llegar a ser la obra más importante sobre el dificil tema de los evangélicos que son recibidos en la Iglesia Católica."
–Thomas Howard, Autor de Evangelical Is Not Enough


David Currie creció en una familia cristiana devota en la que su padre era predicador fundamentalista y, junto a su madre, era también profesor del Instituto Bíblico Moody (Moody Bible Institute). Toda la formación de Currie estaba inmersa en la vida del protestantismo fundamentalista–profesores de teología, presidentes de seminarios protestantes y fundadores de agencias misioneras evangélicas eran invitados frecuentes en su casa. Currie mismo recibió un título de Trinity International University y obtuvo una maestría en teología (Master of Divinity) en Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.

Escribió este libro con el fin de explicar a sus amigos y familiares fundamentalistas y evangélicos el por qué se hizo católico romano. Currie presenta una descripción clara, sistemática y comprensible de las razones de su conversión a la Iglesia que Cristo fundó. Ofrece un debate detallado de las creencias teológicas y doctrinales que católicos y evangélicos mantienen en común, así como también de aquellas doctrinas clave que los separan, particularmente la Eucaristía, el Papa y María.


English Translation:

David Currie was raised in a devout Christian family whose father was a fundamentalist preacher and both parents teachers at Moody Bible Institute. Currie's whole upbringing was immersed in the life of fundamentalist Protestantism...theology professors, seminary presidents, and founders of evangelical mission agencies were frequent guests at his family dinner table. Currie received a degree from Trinity International University and studied in the Masters of Divinity program.

This book was written as an explanation to his fundamentalist and evangelical friends and family about why he became Catholic. Currie presents a very lucid, systematic, and intelligible account of the reasons for his conversion to the ancient Church that Christ founded. He gives a detailed discussion of the important theological and doctrinal beliefs Catholics and evangelicals hold in common, as well as the key doctrines that separate us, particularly the Eucharist, the Pope, and Mary.

The Case for Jesus - Book

The Case for Jesus - Book

For well over a hundred years now, many scholars have questioned the historical truth of the Gospels, claiming that they were originally anonymous. Others have even argued that Jesus of Nazareth did not think he was God and never claimed to be divine.

In The Case for Jesus, Dr. Brant Pitre, the bestselling author of Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist, goes back to the sources—the biblical and historical evidence for Christ—in order to answer several key questions, including:

  • Were the four Gospels really anonymous?
  • Are the Gospels folklore? Or are they biographies?
  • What about the so-called “Lost Gospels,” such as “Q” and the Gospel of Thomas?
  • Did Jesus claim to be God?
  • Why was Jesus crucified?
  • What is the evidence for the Resurrection?

As The Case for Jesus will show, recent discoveries in New Testament scholarship, as well as neglected evidence from ancient manuscripts and the early church fathers, together have the potential to pull the rug out from under a century of skepticism toward the traditional Gospels. Above all, Pitre shows how the divine claims of Jesus of Nazareth can only be understood by putting them in their ancient Jewish context.

Five Pillars of the Spiritual Life

Five Pillars of the Spiritual Life

THIS ITEM IS CURRENTLY OUT OF STOCK. ETA: 10/19/19

Click here to read a sample.

Saint Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits, espoused the ideal of becoming “contemplatives in action.” He was convinced that contemplation (the deep awareness and appropriation of the unconditional love of God) should affect our actions, and that our actions need to be brought back to contemplation.

These are five dimensions of the spiritual life:

  1.  the Holy Eucharist
  2.  spontaneous prayer
  3.  the Beatitudes
  4.  partnership with the Holy Spirit
  5.  the contemplative life itself

This book is a “jump start” to a deeper spiritual life for today’s active people, and it will enflame the desire to read the masters and to enter even more deeply into the heart of God.

Topics include:

  •  God as Abba
  •  The Heart of Jesus
  •  The importance of agape love
  •  A checklist for spiritual growth
  •  The role of the Holy Spirit in the spiritual life
  •  Incorporating the active life with the contemplative life

Praise for Five Pillars of the Spiritual Life

“The publication of Father Spitzer’s book is a happy coincidence, coming after Pope Benedict’s Jesus of Nazareth. Both are strong statements of New Testament spirituality and provide an escape from the ‘bleaching of Christ’s image,’ caused by the exclusive use of the historical-critical method. Informed Catholic readers are summoned by this book to take the Christ of the Gospels intelligently and seriously.”

– Fr. Benedict Groeschel, C.F.R., author, A Still Small Voice
