Archaeology of the Land of the Bible, 10,000–586 B.C.E.

Step-by-step, era-by-era, author Amihai Mazar shows just what each major archaeological discovery has to say about the mysterious stories of the Bible. It’s all here, from the mundane clay jars of the ancient households of Palestine to the beautiful sculpture and jewelry that passed through these lands on the primitive trade routes. From the first settlements in the land of the Bible to the tumultuous period of the divided monarchy of Israel and Judah and the destruction of the First Temple by Nebuchadnezzar, Mazar’s overview of the biblical life and the archaeological evidence to support it is without parallel.

Archaeology of the Land of the Bible has quickly established itself as the standard text in biblical archaeology.

Amihai Mazar is a professor of archaeology at The Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel.

Archaeology of the Land of the Bible, Volume II: The Assyrian, Babylonian, and Persian Periods (732–332 B.C.E.)

Every year thousands of enthusiasts, both amateur and professional, spend the summer months digging in the sands of Israel hoping to find items that relate in some way to the places or events depicted in the Bible. Thousands more view artifacts in museums and long to know the full stories behind them. Volume 2 of Archaeology of the Land of the Bible is the essential book for all of them.

In Ephraim Stern’s sequel to the first volume by Amihai Mazar, this world-renowned archaeologist who has directed excavations in the Holy Land for many years offers a dramatic look at how archaeological research contributes to our understanding of the connections between history and the stories recounted in the Bible. Stern writes about various artifacts unearthed in recent years and relates them to the Assyrian, Babylonian, and Persian periods in the Bible. This volume also contains photographs and illustrations of rare ancient relics ranging from household pottery to beautifully crafted jewelry and sculpture.

Ephraim Stern is one of the leading archaeologists in Israel, and is a professor at the Institute of Archaeology of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Over the past 45 years he has been working in some of the most important excavations in Israel, such as Hazor, Masada, En Gedi, and Beer-Sheba, and served as a director of many others, including the major 20 seasons dig at Tel Dor.

Catechismus Catholicae Ecclesiae

Any study of Catholicism must begin with the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Officially promulgated by Pope John Paul II in 1997, it is the first “universal” Catholic catechism since the Reformation and only the second in history. It is an epochal work that expresses the tenets of the Catholic faith consistent with their articulation at the Second Vatican Council, while remaining in organic unity with the tradition of the Church, drawing in abundance on the sources of Sacred Scripture, the Fathers of the Church, the liturgy, and magisterial authority. If one wants to know what the Catholic Church teaches, the Catechism, as John Paul II stated, is the “sure norm.”

The beauty and profundity of the text is such that while it was intended as a reference work, it is often read as devotional literature, permeated as it is with a subtle theology of love and communion. It is nevertheless comprehensive in its treatment, covering everything from contraception to the doctrine of the Trinity, from Purgatory to papal infallibility.

The Catechism is organized around "four pillars" of Catholicism: Creed, Sacraments, Moral Life, and Prayer; and it discusses these with reference to the most shared aspects of the Christian faith—for example, the Apostles’ Creed, the Ten Commandments, and the Our Father—and so is a welcome tool for facilitating dialogue between all Christians. Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI, oversaw the drafting of the text, and he has repeatedly pointed to the Catechism as a significant step toward an authoritative interpretation of the “Spirit of Vatican II,” toward a cessation of conflicts which have often rent the Church in the aftermath of the council, and toward a rapprochement with those Christians whom the council termed “Separated Brethren.”

Indeed, the Catechism of the Catholic Church: English and Latin (2 vols.) is a work that deserves a place in every Christian’s library. This collection includes both the English and Latin editions of the Catechism.

Redemptor Hominis

Pope John Paul II promulgated Redemptor Hominis (Redeemer of Man) only five months after his election to the pontifical throne. The encyclical letter provided an outline for the objectives of his pontificate. Rooted in the pope’s characteristic “personalism,” the letter explores the far-reaching implications of the fact that “the Redeemer of man, Jesus Christ, is the center of the universe and of history.” In section one, “Inheritance,” the pope expressed the need to continue the work of the Second Vatican Council, especially with regards to ecumenism. In section two, “The Mystery of the Redemption,” the Incarnation is placed at the very center of human reality, redeeming the true dignity of humanity and of all creation. In section three, “Redeemed Man and His Situation in the Modern World,” the pope expresses that the condition of humanity in the world must be the concern of the Church because of the inherent dignity of man as confirmed in Christ. In the final section, “The Church’s Mission and Man’s Destiny,” the Church is posited as the living reality of man’s redeemed vocation, a reality that is most perfect in the Eucharist.

Dives in Misericordia

Written in 1980, Dives in Misericordia (Rich in Mercy) was Pope John Paul II’s second encyclical. The letter focuses on the mercy of God, an attribute, the pope argues, that is stronger than all evil. What’s more, God’s mercy does not humiliate man, but rather elevates his dignity. As the manifestation of God’s love in the world, mercy is the central message of Christ’s preaching. The letter as a whole is an exploration of the role of God the Father’s mercy throughout salvation history and within the mystery of redemption. It follows this theme through eight sections: “He Who Sees Me Sees the Father,” “The Messianic Message,” “The Old Testament,” “The Parable of the Prodigal Son,” “The Paschal Mystery,” “Mercy . . . From Generation to Generation,” “The Mercy of God in the Mission of the Church,” and “The Prayer of the Church in Our Times.”

Laborem Exercens

Pope John Paul II wrote Laborem Exercens (Through Work) in 1981 for the ninetieth anniversary of the famous encyclical Rerum Novarum of Leo III on the question of labor in modern economies. Laborem Exercens makes an important contribution to Catholic social doctrine. Rooted in the pontiff’s characteristic personalism, the letter seeks to expound a concept of labor that is consistent with the dignity of the human person. This involves the total subordination of all aspects of the economy and production to the worker’s status as a human person. It also explores the dignity inherent in labor. The letter has four sections: “Work and Man,” “Conflict between Labor and Capital in the Present Phase of History,” “Rights of the Workers,” and “Elements for a Spirituality of Work.”

Slavorum Apostoli

Pope John Paul II wrote Slavorum Apostoli (The Apostles of the Slavs) in 1985. The letter is a commemoration of Saints Cyril and Methodius, the ninth-century apostles to the Slavic nations of Europe. The encyclical, written by the first Slavic pope, focused on the cultural unity of the Slavic nations with the rest of Europe, and is seen to have had two primary objectives: undermine the isolation of the Communist bloc and work toward the unity of the Latin, Greek, and Slavonic branches of Christianity.

Dominum et Vivificantem

Promulgated in 1986, Dominum et Vivifcantem (The Lord and Giver of Life) focuses on the action of the Holy Spirit in the life of the Church. It is the final letter in Pope John Paul II’s treatment of the Trinity, following Redemptor Hominis on the Son and Dives in Misericordia on the Father. In the first section, “The Spirit of the Father and of the Son, Given to the Church,” the pope explores the action of the Holy Spirit through the Church in history. The second section, “The Spirit Who Convinces the World Concerning Sin,” considers the continuing forgiveness and redemption from sin offered to man through the Holy Spirit. In the third section, “The Spirit Who Gives Life,” the pontiff explains that even in the face of the atheistic materialism of modern culture, openness between man and God remains through the work of the Holy Spirit, most perfectly in the Sacraments of the Church. The Holy Spirit is, therefore, the guardian of hope.

Redemptoris Mater

Pope John Paul II promulgated Redemptoris Mater (The Mother of the Redeemer) in 1987. The encyclical is a complex exploration of Mariology. The first section, “Mary in the Mystery of Christ,” explains Mary’s role in the divine plan of salvation. The second section, “The Mother of God at the Center of the Pilgrim Church,” discusses Mary’s continuing role as the perfect “mirror” of faith. The pope explains, Mary’s journey of faith becomes one with that of the Church at Pentecost. “Thus, from the very first moment, the Church ‘looked at” Mary through Jesus, just as she ‘looked at’ Jesus through Mary.” In the third and final section, “Maternal Mediation,” the pope explores Mary as Mediatrix, as the intercessor in unity with both her Son and the pilgrim Church. “Thus, throughout her life, the Church maintains with the Mother of God a link which embraces, in the saving mystery, the past, the present, and the future, and venerates her as the spiritual mother of humanity and the advocate of grace.”

Sollicitudo Rei Socialis

Written in 1987, Sollicitudo Rei Socialis (Solicitude for Social Issues) was John Paul II’s second social encyclical. In it, the pontiff elaborates on Catholic social teaching and applies its principles to the problem of under-developed and developing nations. Central to this social teaching is that all aspects of social action must “respect and promote all the dimensions of the human person.” The pontiff’s essential message is that progress is about more than the accumulation of material goods or social power, and so it supersedes vying economic or ideological systems. Rather, progress is found in justice and the “authentic development” of the human person. After the introduction, section two, “Originality of the Encyclical Populorum Progressio,” comments on Pope Paul VI’s letter of twenty years prior. Section three “Survey of the Contemporary World,” lays out the pope’s understanding of the current situation. Section four “Authentic Human Development,” explores the meaning of “development” in light of Catholic social teaching. Section five, “A Theological Reading of Modern Problems,” applies this teaching to the current situation. Section six, “Some Particular Guidelines,” provides a way forward, paying special attention to the Church’s “preference for the poor.”

Redemptoris Missio

Pope John Paul II promulgated Redemptoris Missio (Mission of the Redeemer) in 1990. The encyclical is an urgent call for the Church to renew her commitment to evangelize the world. The letter is divided into two parts. The first part, made up of three sections, “Jesus Christ, The Only Savior,&edquo; “The Kingdom of God,” and “The Holy Spirit: The Principal Agent of Mission,” presents a theological defense for the imperative of evangelization. The second part, made up of five sections, “The Vast Horizons of the Mission ad Gentes,” “The Paths of Mission,” “Leaders and Workers in the Missionary Apostolate,” “Cooperation in Missionary Activity,” and “Missionary Spirituality,” provides guidelines for the application of the theology of mission to the contemporary Church.

Centesimus Annus

Written in 1991 on the occasion of the 100-year anniversary of Leo XIII’s ground-breaking social encyclical Rerum Novarum, John Paul II’s Centesimus Annus (The Hundredth Year) brought the principles of Catholic social teaching to bear on contemporaneous political and economic issues. It emphasizes the dignity and rights of workers, the right to private property, the right to a just wage, and the right to religious freedom. It also articulates that the kingdom of God cannot be confused with temporal political or economic arrangements and seeks to explicate the two over-riding principles of the Church’s social teaching: solidarity (which focuses on empathy and human dignity), and subsidiarity (the principle that communities of a higher order should not interfere in the life of communities of a lower order unless necessary). The encyclical is made up of six sections: “Characteristics of Rerum Novarum,” “Towards the ‘New Things’ of Today,” “The Year 1989,” “Private Property and the Universal Destination of Material Goods,” “State and Culture,” and “Man Is the Way of the Church.”

Veritatis Splendor

Pope John Paul II promulgated Veritatis Splendor (The Splendor of Truth) in 1993. The letter is one of the most important works of moral theology in the Catholic tradition. At its core the work is a refutation of moral relativism and nihilism. The pontiff asserts that absolute truth does exist and that it is accessible to mankind. Also, the encyclical re-states that the Magisterium of the Church has authority to pronounce definitively on moral issues. Other focuses are the natural law, human freedom, the role of conscience, the reality of evil, and a refutation of the concept of the “fundamental option.” The letter is divided into three sections: “Teacher, What Good Must I do . . . ?,” “Do Not be Conformed to this World,” and “Lest the Cross of Christ be Emptied of Its Power.”

Evangelium Vitae

Pope John Paul II issued Evangelium Vitae (The Gospel of Life) in 1995. The encyclical states the Church’s teaching on the dignity and inviolability of human life. The pontiff asserts that the immorality of murder, abortion, and euthanasia is a teaching of the ordinary and universal Magisterium of the Church and is therefore infallible and unchangeable. He also treats capital punishment, stating it to be normally immoral. The letter also deals with more general issues such as sexual morality, the importance of the family, and society’s duty to care for the sick and the poor. The encyclical is divided into four sections, “The Voice of Your Brother’s Blood Cries to Me from the Ground: Present-Day Threats to Human Life,” “I Came That They May Have Life: The Christian Message Concerning Life,” “You Shall Not Kill: God’s Holy Law,” and “You Did It to Me: For a New Culture of Human Life.”

Ut Unum Sint

Pope John Paul II wrote Ut Unum Sint (That They Might Be One) in 1995. The encyclical focuses on the Roman Catholic Church’s relationship with the Orthodox Churches and with other Christian ecclesial communities and expresses the Church’s commitment to an ecumenism that does not dilute the importance of doctrine. The letter is divided into three sections: “The Catholic Church’s Commitment to Ecumenism,” “The Fruits of Dialogue,” and “Quanta est Nobis Via?.”

Fides et Ratio

Written in 1998, Fides et Ratio (Faith and Reason) is Pope John Paul II’s treatment of the relationship between faith and reason. The pope re-iterates the Church’s teaching that faith and reason are not only not in conflict, but are in their essences bound up together. Faith without reason tends toward superstition and reason without faith tends toward nihilism. The pope calls for their re-integration and defends the Church’s responsibility to intervene in philosophy when its errors threaten revelation. The letter is divided into seven sections: “The Revelation of God’s Wisdom,” “Credo ut Intellegam,&rquo; “The Relationship between Faith and Reason,” “The Magisterium’s Interventions in Philosophical Matters,” “The Interaction between Philosophy and Theology,” and “Current Requirements and Tasks.”

Ecclesia de Eucharistia

Ecclesia de Eucharistia (Church of the Eucharist) was promulgated by Pope John Paul II in 2003. The encyclical focuses on the Eucharist as the “source and the summit” of Christian life and as the most precious possession of the Church. The pope calls for a renewal of Eucharistic devotion, asserts the sacrificial character of the Mass, and re-iterates the necessity of the ministerial priesthood and the reality of apostolic succession. The letter is divided into six sections: “The Mystery of Faith,” “The Eucharist Builds the Church,” “The Apostolicity of the Eucharist and the Church,” “The Eucharist and Ecclesial Communion,” “The Dignity of the Eucharistic Celebration,” and “At the School of Mary, ‘Woman of the Eucharist.’”

Deus Caritas Est

Written in 2005, Deus Caritas Est (God is Love) was Pope Benedict XVI’s first encyclical letter. It focuses on Love as the central reality of existence. The letter explores the concept of love at a theological and philosophical level, discussing eros, agape, and philia. It also articulates how love should become manifest in the life of the Church, through the proclamation of the word of God, the celebration of the Sacraments, and the exercise of charity. The encyclical is divided into two sections: “The Unity of Love in Creation and in Salvation History,” and “Caritas: The Practice of Love by the Church as a ‘Community of Love.’”

Spe Salvi

Pope Benedict XVI promulgated Spe Salvi (Saved by Hope) in 2007. The encyclical is a exploration of the theological virtue of hope and its relationship to redemption. The pontiff explains that the hope offered by Christ is not that of political liberation or economic abundance, but is rather of an encounter with the living God that surpasses all socio-political considerations. The letter is divided into eight sections: “Faith is Hope,” “The Concept of Faith-Based Hope in the New Testament and the Early Church,” “Eternal Life—What Is It?,” “Is Christian Hope Individualistic?,” “The Transformation of Christian Faith-Hope in the Modern Age,” “The True Shape of Christian Hope,” “‘Settings’ for Learning and Practicing Hope,” and “Mary, Star of Hope.”

Caritas in Veritate

Published in 2009, Caritas in Veritate (Charity in Truth) was pope Benedict XVI’s first social encyclical. The encyclical is concerned with many aspects of global development and economic and political justice. The pontiff aims to lay down moral guidelines within which specific policies can be crafted. These guidelines include a rejection of both socialist and free-market ideologies in favor of a conception within which all social actions are informed by ethics. The letter discusses poverty, population issues, the environment, relativism, sexual exploitation, and many other timely issues. It is divided into six sections: “The Message of ‘Populorum Progressio,’” “Human Development in Our Time,” “Fraternity, Economic Development and Civil Society,” “The Development of People, Rights and Duties, and the Environment,” “The Cooperation of the Human Family,” and “The Development of Peoples and Technology.”

Nova Vulgata: Bibliorum Sacrorum Editio

The Nova Vulgata is the official Latin version of the Bible for the Catholic Church. It has its origins in the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965), which put forth the mandate for a revision of the Latin Psalter in order to bring it in line with modern text-critical research. Then in 1965, Pope Paul VI established a commission to expand the revision to cover the entire Bible. The revised Psalter was completed and published in 1969, followed by the New Testament in 1971, and the entire Vulgate was completed in 1979. A second edition was then published several years later in 1986.

The textual basis of the Nova Vulgata is the critical edition of Jerome’s Vulgate, as edited by the monks of the Benedictine Abbey of St. Jerome in Rome and the critical edition of the Vulgate edited by Robert Weber (also available with a critical apparatus in the German Bible Society Bundle). The basis for Tobit and Judith are the Old Latin manuscripts that predate Jerome’s translation. Together this collection of texts were revised according to modern critical editions of the Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek, along with a number of places where the editors believed that Jerome had misunderstood the meaning of the original or had translated it obscurely.

The original goal of the Nova Vulgata was to provide an authoritative edition of Jerome’s translation for the production of a reformed Latin liturgy, while also correcting the Vulgate in use and taking into account other important liturgical factors such as readability in public and singability for choirs.

[The] Nova Vulgata appeared in 1979. Intended for liturgical and pastoral use, the text represents a happy synthesis between the demands of textual criticism and respect for the ecclesiastical Latin of the church.

A Dictionary of Canon Law

This pocket manual of canon law is a digest of the 1917 Code. On most subjects, the points of the law are scattered through the Code. By gathering these points under their respective heads and arranging them in alphabetical order, with reference to canon, paragraph, and number in the Code, this manual aims to be a clear, intelligent counselor in the ordinary affairs of Catholic life, and a ready index to the Code for questions that require knowledge of the niceties of ecclesiastical law.

Under the more than 600 titles, there is hardly any conceivable point or topic embraced by the Code that is not brought out and elucidated by the rays focused upon it from every related portion of the Law. And so by its aid the student can at once get a summary of the Church’s enactments upon any required subject and with the help of the numbered references can verify and, if need be, supplement the epitomized information.

A History of the Councils of the Church, vols. 1–5

This work is widely recognized as a classic of ecclesiastical history. Based directly on the primary sources, Charles Joseph von Hefele reconstructs the most significant Church gatherings from the council of Jerusalem, depicted in The Acts of the Apostles, to the Second Council of Nicaea in 787. This was the period of the undivided Church, when East and West were united and governed primarily through periodic gatherings, the most famous being the seven ecumenical councils held in 325, 381, 431, 451, 553, 680, and 787. This history clearly and thoroughly explains the major issues dealt with at each council, including clear descriptions of the numerous heretical movements of the early Church. It also describes with great detail the politics surrounding the calling and conclusion of the councils.

Charles Joseph von Hefele was bishop of Rottenburg and professor of theology at the University of Tübingen.

Kinship by Covenant: A Canonical Approach to the Fulfillment of God’s Saving Promises

While the canonical scriptures were produced over many centuries and represent a diverse library of texts, they are unified by stories of divine covenants and their implications for God’s people. In this deeply researched and thoughtful book, Scott Hahn shows how covenant, as an overarching theme, makes possible a coherent reading of the diverse traditions found within the canonical scriptures.

Biblical covenants, though varied in form and content, all serve the purpose of extending sacred bonds of kinship, Hahn explains. Specifically, divine covenants form and shape a father-son bond between God and the chosen people. Biblical narratives turn on that fact, and biblical theology depends upon it. With meticulous attention to detail, the author demonstrates how divine sonship represents a covenant relationship with God that has been consistent throughout salvation history. A canonical reading of this divine plan reveals an illuminating pattern of promise and fulfillment in both the Old and New Testaments. God’s saving mercies are based upon his sworn commitments, which he keeps even when his people break the covenant.

Both well-written and exhaustive, this impressive work will fascinate readers with New Testament truths about God’s unyielding covenant with his chosen, fallible people.

—David Noel Freedman, editor of the Anchor Yale Bible

This book is the fruit of an immense amount of research in the contemporary study of the Biblical covenant. No one who takes up the challenge to study it, whether scholar or not, will come away from reading it without being more astute in matters human and divine. The thesis of the book is masterly in its basic insight: life lived under Biblical covenant cannot be separated from life lived in relationships dictated by familial terms and ties. It is the family which is central to the Bible’s view of life for the simple reason that the family is central to life itself.

—James Swetnam, S. J., Pontifical Biblical Institute

Scott Hahn opens new vistas, chases down old haunts, and leads us to a fuller, deeper, and more penetrating understanding of covenant. Until we get ‘covenant’ right, we simply don’t understand the Bible. When I think of the word ‘covenant’ I think of Kinship by Covenant. When I have any questions about ‘covenant,’ this is the first book I will turn to for ever and a day.

—Scot McKnight, editor of The Face of New Testament Studies: A Survey of Recent Research

At last Scott Hahn’s Kinship by Covenant is published! Maintaining a masterful command of the data on biblical and ancient near eastern covenants, the work exposes how, for over a century, biblical scholarship lost sight of the covenant as a kinship-forging ritual. Richly documented, theologically profound, the book will prove an invaluable resource in Old and New Testament study.

The Confession of St. Patrick

“I am Patrick, a sinner, the most unschooled and least of all the faithful, and utterly despised by many,” was the first sentence St. Patrick penned of his Confession—the autobiography of his life and missionary journeys. Over the past centuries, various writers have quoted from St. Patrick’s Confession, finding encouragement in its many lessons of faith and humility. The Confession St. Patrick is a translation of St. Patrick’s famous Confession from its original Latin. It includes an extensive introduction and notes, as well as an explanation of the translation process Thomas Olden underwent.

Thomas Olden (1823–1900) was the rector of Ballyclogh 1868–1899, Cork, Ireland. He attended Trinity College in Dublin and received a BA, MA, BD, and honorary DD. An Irish Anglican writer, he wrote over sixty entries, mostly on Irish saints.

The Life and Writings of St. Patrick

The Life and Writings of St. Patrick is one of the fullest and exact accounts of St. Patrick’s missionary labors in Ireland. Avoiding bias opinions of the saint by gathering information from ancient records, this biography allows the story of St. Patrick’s life to speak for itself. It includes nine appendixes that discuss—in detail—various aspects of St. Patrick’s life, as well as a map illustrating St. Patrick’s missionary journeys through Ireland.

Dr. Healy has gone over the ground himself; has collected the popular traditions; has identified, wherever possible, the sites of the old Patrician churches, and to our mind has given the most accurate, the most complete, and the most interesting account of what may be called the topography of St. Patrick’s life.

The Irish Ecclesiastical Record

Dr. Healy gives us, form an inside standpoint, a copious and exhaustive history of Ireland’s Apostle. The present work, containing over seven hundred and fifty good-sized pages, embodies everything of value that is known, or probably ever will be known, on the subject. Its chief excellence is the wealth of topographical lore which the learned author has brought to his task. . . . The narrative of St. Patrick’s journeying is greatly enlivened by the Archbishop’s identification of the various places and landmarks in the modern nomenclature.

John Healy (1841–1918) was Archbishop of Tuam from 1903 to 1918. Prior to that, He served as Bishop of Clonfert from 1896 to 1903.

A Commentary upon the Gospel According to S. Luke, vol. 1

The Glory of the Lord, vol. 1: Seeing the Form

The work opens with a critical review of developments in Protestant and Catholic Theology since the Reformation which have led to the steady neglect of aesthetics in Christian theology. From here, von Balthasar turns to the central theme of the volume: the question of theological knowledge. He re-examines the nature of Christian believing (here he quickly draws widely on such theological figures as Anselm, Pascal and Newman) which gives due place to the particular kind of “knowing” which develops within the personal relationship to the believer to the God mediated through the revelation-form of Jesus Christ.

Hans Urs von Balthasar (1905–1988) was a Swiss theologian, considered to be one of the most important Catholic intellectuals and writers of the twentieth century. Incredibly prolific and diverse, he wrote over one hundred books and hundreds of articles. He was nominated to be a cardinal of the Catholic Church, but died two days before his ceremony.

The Glory of the Lord, vol. 2: Clerical Styles

Henri de Lubac has described von Balthasar as “probably the most cultured man in Europe”. In this volume von Balthasar shows the extraordinary range of his knowledge and expertise in a series of essays designed to illustrate different ways in which theologians have shared their work. What he offers is “a typology of the relationship between beauty and revelation” which shows “that there neither has been nor could be any true great and historically fruitful theology which was not expressly conceived and born under the constellation of beauty and grace”. The volume offers a series of studies of representative figures from the earlier period of Christian theology, including Irenaeus, Augustine, Denys, Anselm, and Bonventura.

The Glory of the Lord, vol. 3: Lay Styles

In this volume von Balthasar turns to the works of the lay theologians, the poets and the philosopher theologians who have kept alive the grand tradition of Christian theology in writings formally very different from the works of the Fathers and the great Scholastics. This volume contains studies of Dante, John of the Cross, Pascal, Hamann, Soloviev, Hopkins, and Peguy.

The Glory of the Lord, vol. 4: The Realm of Metaphysics in Antiquity

In this fourth volume of his magnum opus, von Balthasar considers the metaphysical tradition of the contemplation of Being. He provides major studies of Homer, the Greek Tragedians, Plato, and Plotinus and the development of this tradition in the Middle Ages. He then explores the analogy between the metaphysical vision of the Being and the Christian vision of the divine glory of the Trinity. The book is a remarkable attempt to rediscover the ancient vision of Being in all its awesomeness as the context within which the specifically Christian vision, rooted in God’s gracious self-revelation, took form and was expressed.

The Glory of the Lord, vol. 5: The Realm of Metaphysics in the Modern Age

In this second volume on the metaphysical traditions of the West, von Balthasar presents a series of studies of representative mystics, theologians, philosophers, and poets and explores the three main streams of metaphysics which have developed since the “catastrophe” of Nominalism. The way of self-abandonment to the divine glory is traced through figures like Eckhart, Julian of Norwich, Ignatius, de Sales; the attempt to relocate theology in a recovery of antiquity’s sense of being and beauty through figures like Nicholas of Cusa, Holderlin, Goethe, Heidegger; the metaphysics of spirit through Descartes, Leibniz, Spinoza, and the Idealists. The strengths and weaknesses of these ways are relentlessly exposed. The volume ends with the search for the Christian contribution to metaphysics.

The Glory of the Lord, vol. 6: Theology: The Old Covenant

This volume initiates von Balthasar’s study of the biblical vision and understanding of God’s glory. Starting with the theophanies of the Patriarchal period, it shows how such glory is most fully expressed in the graciousness of the Covenant relationship between God and Israel. But the breaking of that relationship by Israel means that in the later books of the Old Testament, the divine glory is seen in God’s willingness to bear with his people in the dark side of their history. There is no final version of God’s glory in the Old Testament. In the 500 years before Christ, the Covenant relation is more of an idea than reality. The vision of the transcendent glory of God which is developed in the later writings is only fragmentary. It will find its strange and unexpected fulfillment in the new Covenant.

The Glory of the Lord, vol. 7: Theology: The New Covenant

In this final volume of his great work, von Balthasar reflects on the New Testament vision of God’s revelation of his glory in Christ. This divine “appearing” is grounded in the self-emptying of the eternal logos in the incarnation, cross, and descent into hell. Christ is the man who represents God and is also God; He is a symbol of the world and is also the world. He dies, but in dying rises into the eternal life of God. It is in Christ’s incarnation and resurrection that the Christian vision is truly expressed and the joining of God and the world in the new and eternal covenant is realized.

Theo–Drama, vol. 1: Prolegomena

This is the introduction to the second part of the trilogy which is von Balthasar’s major work. The Glory of the Lord approaches revelation from the standpoint of the beautiful. The final part of the trilogy, the Theo-Logic, will treat Christian revelation from the standpoint of the true.

In this first volume von Balthasar shows how many of the trends of modern theology (e.g. “event”, “history”, “orthopraxy”, “dialogue”, “political theology”) point to an understanding of human and cosmic reality as a divine drama. He will then consider objections to such a theological dramatic theory and also the relationship between the Church and the theater. This volume assembles the materials and the themes that will make it possible in subsequent volumes to develop this theological dramatic theory.

Theo–Drama, vol. 2: Dramatis Personae

The first volume of this series surveyed the great world dramatists to gather concepts and ideas to apply to the real stage, which is the universe God has made and centered into himself as an actor. This volume describes the actors, the dramatis personae. This is his theological anthropology concerning man, his freedom and destiny in the light of biblical revelation. Von Balthasar is concerned here with the dramatic character of existence as a whole, approaching the topic through a consideration of the various conditions and situations of mankind as a drama that involves both the Creator and His creatures.

Theo–Drama, vol. 3: Dramatis Personae

The third volume of Theo-Drama is considered the most central book of von Balthasar’s entire theological project. Structurally it is the middle volume of the middle part of his theological trilogy: Glory of the Lord, Theo-Drama, and Theo-Logic. More significantly, it contains von Balthasar’s synthetic treatment of the central mysteries of the Catholic Faith: Christ, Mary, the Church, man, and the Trinity.

The various elements of von Balthasar’s theological reflection converge here, and here as nowhere else one can find the systematic elaboration of his Christology, Mariology, ecclesiology, anthropology and Trinitarian doctrine. It is both a one-volume compendium of this theology and a key to his trilogy and other writings.

Theo–Drama, vol. 4: The Action

Having presented his Christology and Mariology under the sign of the “Dramatis Personae” in volume three of Theo-Drama, von Balthasar now turns to the action of the divine drama itself. Here we find his soteriology, where time, freedom, history, power, sin, conflict are seen in the light of the Cross, the culmination of the action and passion of God and man.

As Balthasar expresses it in the conclusion to his preface: here “we discern the unity of ‘glory’ and the ‘dramatic’. God’s glory, as it appears in the world—supremely in Christ—is not something static that could be observed by a neutral investigator. It manifests itself only through the personal involvement whereby God himself comes forth to do battle and is both victor and vanquished. If this glory is to come within our range at all, an analogous initiative is called for on our part. Revelation is a battlefield. Those who do battle on it can only be believers and theologians, provided they have equipped themselves with the whole armor of God (Eph 6:11).”

Theo–Drama, vol. 5: The Last Act

This is the final volume of this series on “theological dramatic theory” by the great 20th century theologian Balthasar. This series is the second part of Balthasar’s trilogy on the good, the beautiful, and the true which is his major work. The first series in the trilogy is The Glory of the Lord, and following this Theo-Drama series will be Theo-Logic.

In this series “the good” has been the focus. Balthasar maintains that it is in the theater that man attempts a kind of transcendence to observe and to judge his own truth about himself. He sees the phenomenon of theater as a source of fruitfulness for theological reflection on the cosmic drama that involves earth and heaven. This fifth volume is Trinitarian, focusing on the mystery of God. He draws heavily on Scripture and many passages from the works of the mystic Adrienne von Spyer. Some of the topics covered include “A Christian Eschatology,” “The World is from the Trinity,” “Earth moves Heavenward,” and “The Final Act: A Trinitarian Drama.”

Theo–Logic, vol. 1: The Truth of the World

Theo-Logic is the third and crowning part of the great trilogy of the masterwork of theologian Hans Urs von Balthasar, following his first two parts, The Glory of the Lord and Theo-Drama. This third part of the trilogy focuses on theological “logic” and what role it plays in the event of God’s self-revelation through the Incarnation of the Logos and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

The Truth of the World searches to uncover the structures that characterize the truth of finite being, while keeping in mind that this truth cannot be explained outside of its circumincessive relation to the other transcendentals. This volume investigates truth as nature, freedom, mystery, and participation.

Theo–Logic, vol. 2: Truth of God

Truth of God concentrates on the truth that God has made known to us by his own initiative through free revelation, which therefore also becomes the ultimate norm of the truth of the world. This revelation, far from abrogating worldly truth, elevates and perfects it beyond itself. But the understanding, and description, of this relationship presupposes the analysis of the first volume.

While the first volume works with philosophical concepts from a philosophical point of view, the second follows a theological method from a theological point of view.

Theo–Logic, vol. 3: The Spirit of the Truth

The final volume of the Theo-Logic focuses on the work of the Holy Spirit. Though Balthasar devotes some thought to the relations within the Trinity and to the problem of the filioque, he spends the better part of the volume presenting his ideas of the objective and subjective aspects of the Spirit’s person and work.

The Colloquies of Desiderius Erasmus (3 vols.)

One of the most important figures of the 16th century, Desiderius Erasmus was a leading reformist and Renaissance humanist. Through his works and letters, Erasmus championed that true religion was a matter of inward devotion rather than outward symbols of ceremony and ritual, and sought to reform aspects of the Church from within. His works showed an astonishing intelligence, razor-sharp wit, and an authentic love for God and humanity. Soon after publication, his works were translated and read all over Europe.

The Colloquies of Erasmus still hold interest to many—the linguist, the historian, the moralist, the theologian, the lover of fiction—the short ruminations that fill these pages are funny, inspiring, rich with knowledge, poignant, captivating, and entertaining. These works were in high demand when they were published, creating a sensation all over Europe and placing Erasmus on the short list of must-read Latin scholars.

Perhaps no man wielded a greater influence in the sixteenth century than Erasmus. Both in his relation to Protestantism and Romanism, Erasmus was an epoch-making personality. The modern age cannot be understood without a study of his writings and the tracing of his influence.

Desiderius Erasmus (1466–1536) was a priest, scholar, author, and translator known as a leading figure in the Renaissance humanist movement before and during the Reformation. In 1506 he graduated as Doctor of Divinity from Turin University, and later was Lady Margaret’s Professor of Divinity at the University of Cambridge. He then taught at Queens College, Cambridge for five years before becoming an independent scholar. Erasmus’ works were very influential; his books were produced in many editions and translations and printed all through Europe during his lifetime.

The Birth of the Messiah: A Commentary on the Infancy Narratives in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke

In some ways the narratives of Jesus’ birth and infancy are the last frontiers to be crossed in the critical approach to the Gospels. For some, the stories of Jesus’ birth are given dubious historical value. For others, the popular character of these narratives—the exotic magi, birth star, angelic messengers, and so on—renders them as legends unworthy to be a vehicle of the pure Gospel message. Still others deem them simple Christian folklore devoid of any real theology—only written for romantics or the naïve. Yet each Christmas, Christian clergy and the people to whom they minister must continue to face them.

According to Raymond Brown, introductory materials on the New Testament in general and the Gospels in particular gives the infancy narratives short shrift, disproportionate to their role in Christian theology, art, and poetic imagination. Perhaps the most visible sign of this neglect is the absence of a major modern commentary which treats the two infancy narratives together.

It was from this felt need that efforts for a new commentary were undertaken. In The Birth of the Messiah, Raymond Brown is interested in the role the infancy narratives played in the early Christian understanding of Jesus. By treating the two narratives together in the same volume, Brown points out their common tendencies and emphases. By giving them two distinct treatments, however, he also shows how each fits within the theological framework of its respective Gospel, and thus offers us reasons for the differences between the infancy narratives.

In The Birth of the Messiah, Brown contends that the infancy narratives are, indeed, worthy vehicles of the Gospel messages. In fact, they contain the Gospel message in miniature. On a deeper level, this commentary reflects the instinct recognizing the infancy narratives as the essence of the Good News—namely, that God has made himself present to us in the life of the Messiah who walked the earth.

A line-by-line exegesis . . . that not only synthesizes a generation of modern scholarship but also provides a coherent and compelling explanation of what the stories of Christ’s birth were meant to convey . . . Brown manages to rescue the Christmas story from both the contempt of experts and the sentimentality of naive laymen . . . Ordinary Christians can thank this priestly scholar for helping them to put the adult Christ back into Christmas.

Newsweek

A work of highest critical historical scholarship in a form that is accessible to the average well-educated reader . . . Brown’s treatment of the infancy narratives is definitive. It will undoubtedly be the standard work on the subject for years to come.

The Bible Today

Raymond E. Brown taught for many years at Saint Mary’s Seminary in Baltimore and was Professor of Biblical Studies at the Union Theological Seminary for two decades. He was the author of three books in the Anchor Yale Bible series on the Gospels and Epistles of John. He died in 1998.

The Death of the Messiah, from Gethsemane to the Grave, vols. 1–2

The Passion Narrative proceeds from arrest through trial to condemnation, execution, and burial. In each Gospel, it records the longest consecutive action of Jesus. It has captured the attention and imagination of dramatists and artists, and it has inspired the poetry and music of the church for two thousand years. Alongside “born of the Virgin Mary,” the other phrase that made its way into the creed, “suffered under Pontius Pilate,” has become a marker anchoring Christian belief about the Son of God to a Jesus who was a human figure of actual history.

Historically, Jesus’ death was the most public event of his life. Theologically, Christians have interpreted the death of Jesus on the cross as a key element of God’s plan for the justification, redemption, and salvation of all. Spiritually, the Jesus of the Passion has been the focus of Christian meditation for countless would-be disciples who take seriously the command of the Master to take up the cross and follow him. Pastorally, the passion is the centerpiece of Lent and Holy Week, and the most sacred time in the liturgical calendar. From every point of view, the Passion is the central narrative in the Christian story.

The massive amount of material written on the Passion Narrative creates a need for a work that brings together the scattered views, proposals, and interpretations. In this 2-volume work, Raymond Brown sifts through the material to offer a full-scale commentary on the Passion Narratives of the Gospels.

The Death of the Messiah serves a variety of audiences: scholars, pastors, students of the religion and theology of the Bible, interested Christians, and those of any persuasion who seek knowledge about the passion and death of Jesus. Brown treats subjects in a readable way, even when it requires greater length or exposition.

Volume 1 covers the scenes of Jesus in Gethsemane, Jesus before the Jewish authorities, and Jesus before Pilate. This volume contains translation, commentary, and analysis of each passage.

Volume 2 continues Raymond Brown’s project of commentary and analysis of the Passion Narrative, covering the scenes of Jesus’ crucifixion and burial. This volume also contains nine appendices on non-canonical passion narratives, historicity, views of Judas Iscariot, Old Testament background, and Jesus’ predictions of his death. Volume 2 concludes with a detailed bibliography and a 25-page subject index.

Once again Raymond Brown has written a magnum opus. A stunning array of fresh insights into how the passion stories came into being and what—scene by scene—the four Evangelists really say about the arrest and crucifixion of Jesus.

Newsweek

Father Raymond Brown has a strong claim to be the most distinguished of American New Testament scholars, and he has few competitors worldwide.

New York Times

The Death of the Messiah is first of all a scholarly work, but it is also enjoyably readable and accessible to the interested layman.

An Introduction to the Gospel of John

When Raymond E. Brown died in 1998, less than a year after the publication of his masterpiece, An Introduction to the New Testament, he left behind a nearly completed revision of his acclaimed two-volume commentary on the Gospel of John in the Anchor Yale Bible. The manuscript, skillfully edited by Francis J. Moloney, displays the rare combination of meticulous scholarship and clear, engaging writing that made Father Brown’s books consistently outsell other works of biblical scholarship.

An Introduction to the Gospel of John represents the culmination of Brown’s long and intense examination of part of the New Testament. One of the most important aspects of this new book, particularly to the scholarly community, is how it differs from the original commentary in several important ways. It presents, for example, a new perspective on the historical development of the Gospels, and shows how Brown decided to open his work to literary readings of the text, rather than relying primarily on the historical, which informed the original volumes. In addition, there is an entire section devoted to Christology, absent in the original, as well as a magisterial new section on the representation of Jews in the Gospel of John.

An Exposition of the Epistles of St. Paul and of the Catholic Epistles (2 vols.)

John MacEvilly’s exposition of the Pauline and Catholic Epistles offers a clear, Catholic, passage-by-passage interpretation of the text. It combines traditional exegesis with moral exhortation and so has been widely used as a daily devotional. The work was originally intended for laymen, but quickly found a place as a textbook in seminary education and has seen numerous editions.

John MacEvilly was the archbishop of Tuam.

Essays: Critical and Historical (2 vols.)

This collection of essays was written early in Newman’s career from 1828–1842. Newman’s topics vary from literary criticism and the Greek poets to the catholicity of the Anglican church and the concept of Antichrist. These two volumes capture the academic breadth of Newman’s career as a Fellow at Oriel College. All of these articles were written during Newman’s Anglican period and do not always reflect his later thoughts toward the Catholic church.

John Henry Newman (February 21, 1801–August 11, 1890) was a priest and Cardinal in the Roman Catholic Church. His father was a banker and his mother’s family was French Huguenot. Newman was raised in a strict Calvinist home and received his primary education at the famous Ealing School. John Henry Newman graduated from Trinity College, Oxford in 1821 and was elected to a fellowship at Oriel College, Oxford in the following year. On June 13, 1824 he was ordained into the Anglican priesthood. From the early 1830’s until 1845, Newman was a leading figure in the Oxford Movement, a group of Anglican priests and scholars from Oxford who sought to restore the rites of the Anglican church to their Apostolic roots in the Early Church. Between 1842 and 1845, during a time of solitude and the completion of Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine, Newman underwent a process conversion to Roman Catholicism. Newman also published the Oxford Conservative Journal during this time period as a platform for retracting any negative remarks he previously assailed towards the Roman Church.

He was officially received into the Catholic Church on October 9, 1845. The conversion of John Henry Newman to Catholicism was the result of a life’s long struggle to reconcile the historic faith handed down from the Apostles with his own Anglican tradition. Frustrated with the errors inherent in both Protestantism and Roman Catholicism, Newman abandoned his search for the via media (or, middle way) of Anglicanism and converted to the Roman Catholic Church. In 1848, Newman founded the Birmingham Oratory at Maryvale and began ministering to the Catholic population of the city. In 1851, the Bishops of Ireland elected to start a Catholic university in Dublin and they appointed Newman to be the founder and first rector of the institution. Maintaining his ministry at the Birmingham Oratory, Newman established what would become University College, Dublin. His Idea of a University was prepared for founding faculty of the university at Dublin. On May 12, 1879 Pope Leo XIII appointed Newman to the college of Cardinals. John Henry Cardinal Newman died on August 11, 1890. Cardinal Newman is currently under consideration by the Vatican for sainthood.

The Via Media of the Anglican Church (2 vols.)

Early in his career John Henry Newman held the view that the Anglican Church of England provided a sort of “middle way” between the perceived errors of the Roman Catholic church on the one hand, and those perceived errors manifested in many Protestant churches on the other hand. This two volume work outlines Newman‘s argument in support of this view and his recommendations for enacting further reform within the Anglican church.

Historical Sketches (3 vols.)

These volumes are comprised of lengthy lectures and articles written for encyclopedic publications. John Henry Newman was among the greatest historians of his day and few can escape his influence on the study of Christian history.

Parochial and Plain Sermons (8 vols.)

This volume contains sermons delivered during Newman’s post at Oriel College, Oxford. Most of the sermons in this collection include the date of delivery, making it easy to compare the practical, homiletical presentation of Newman’s theories to the more intricate nuances of his argument in a corresponding essay.

The Sayings of the Fathers

From the middle of the fifth century, and probably from the late fourth century, collections of sayings from the hermits of the Egyptian desert began to be circulated. Smaller collections of these sayings were gradually assembled into larger collections arranged alphabetically, by author, or by subject. In The Sayings of the Fathers, Owen Chadwick translates the standard and celebrated edition of this collection of sayings that was printed by the Jesuit Heribert Rosweyde at Antwerp in 1615. Chadwick chose this version to translate because it is one of the earliest of the western collections, and because it was probably the most influential of the collections in western monastic history.

Owen Chadwick was made Fellow of Trinity Hall, Cambridge in 1947, and in 1968 was elected Regius Professor of Modern History, a chair he held for fourteen years. A prominent Christian historian, his books include The Secularization of the European Mind in the 19th Century, Hensley Henson: A Study in the Friction between Church and state, and The Christian Church in the Cold War.

Boethius: The Theological Tractates and The Consolation of Philosophy

During his brief life of 44 years, Boethius authored and translated numerous important works and treatises on the Christian faith. Considered by Stewart and Rand to be "the last of the Roman philosophers and the first of the scholastic theologians," an imprisoned Boethius penned The Consolation of Philosophy, his best known work, before being executed in 524 A. D. This volume contains the Latin texts and English translations of The Consolation of Philosophy, as well as the tractates On the Trinity (two treatises), On the Catholic Faith, and A Treatise Against Eutyches and Nestorius.

Hugh Fraser Stewart (1863–1948) was a fellow and chaplain of Trinity College, Cambridge, and the author of numerous books on Boethius, Augustine of Hippo, and Pascal.

Edward Kennard Rand (1871–1945) was born in Boston, Massachusetts and educated at Harvard where he taught medieval history and Latin for forty years. He was the founder and first president of the Medieval Academy of America, the founder and first editor of Speculum, and president of the American Philological Association from 1922–1923. He is the author of several books, including Founders of the Middle Ages and The Building of Eternal Rome, as well as hundreds of scholarly articles and essays.

Morals on the Book of Job (3 vols.)

St. Gregory the Great’s massive four-volume commentary on the Book of Job is thought to have been written between 578 and 595. The first two chapters from the Book of Job are explained in a three part structure: historical, allegorical, and moral application. Gregory the Great then follows a historical, mystical, and moral pattern of explaining the Book of Job.

Throughout the whole Church, and in particular England, the works of St. Gregory became the foundation of the moral, theological, and spiritual teaching during the centuries after his death. It is not too much to say that his Morals on the Book of Job and his treatise on the Pastoral Charge long formed the storehouses from which generations of spiritual writers drew their inspirations, their ideas, and frequently their very words.

The Dublin Review

Charles Marriott (1811–1858) was an Anglican priest, fellow of Oriel College, Oxford, and one of the members of the Oxford Movement.

An Encyclopedist of the Dark Ages: Isidore of Seville

Before offering an English translation of St. Isidore of Seville’s classic Etymologies, Ernest Brehaut provides a biography of Isidore’s life, and explores his relationship to previous culture, his view of education, and his world-view in general. Isidore’s vast encyclopedic systemization of ancient learning includes subjects such as theology, philosophy, medicine, and music, and is considered one of the most important sources for the history of intellectual culture in the early Middle Ages.

Ernest Brehaut (1873–1953) was a professor of history at Columbia University, New York, and also the author of History of the Franks.

On Holy Images

Responding to the edict by the Byzantine Emperor Leo III banning the veneration or exhibition of holy images, St. John Damascene penned a defense of holy images that garnered his reputation as an important thinker and writer. In On Holy Images, Allies provides an English translation from the original Greek of John Damascene's classic text, as well as translating three sermons on the Assumption of Mary.

A translation of the treatise on Holy Images by the last of the great Greek Fathers, who is at the same time the definite forerunner of the speculative method inaugurated by the scholastics of the Middle Ages, has a special interest and significance for our time.

The American Ecclesiastical Review

The Damascene's polemic is of great historical as well as dogmatic interest. It deserves attention for its argument, its style, and its effects.

The Critical Review of Theological and Philosophical Literature

Mary H. Allies translated numerous works from the Church Fathers, including Leaves from St. Augustine, as well as the biography of her father, Thomas Allies, the Story of a Mind.

Barlaam and Ioasaph (English and Greek Texts)

The Greek legend of Barlaam and Ioasaph, traditionally attributed to St. John Damascene, serves as a re-telling of the life of Buddha through a Christian lens. Although the story’s original plot may have been adapted from Christians of the East for their own use, St. Damascene's Barlaam and Ioasaph is clearly a celebration of Christian monasticism. The Greek text and the English translation are both provided in this volume, along with an in-depth introduction in which the authors discuss its authorship and more.

Despite its considerable interest, religious and in places fairly human, Barlaam and Ioasaph has never before been completely translated into English from the original, and the present undertaking is a work of considerable value, carefully executed.

The Nation

George Ratcliffe Woodward (1848–1934) was born in Hamilton Square, Birkenhead and educated at Gonville and Casius College, Cambridge. Woodward is most known for his writing and translating of hymns, and his works include Carols for Easter and Ascension-tide and A Cambridge Carol Book: Being Fifty-two Songs for Christmas, Easter, and Other Seasons.

Harold Mattingly (1884–1964) was Craven Scholar and Fellow of Gonville and Casius College, Cambridge. He joined the British Museum in 1910 in the Department of Printed Books before moving to the Department of Coins and Medals where he was responsible for a total revision of the chronology and study of Roman coinage. His other works include Earliest Times to the Fall of the Roman, The Imperial Civil Service of Rome, and The Man in the Roman Street.

Explanation of the Rule of St. Augustine

Sometimes thought of as a “Second Augustine” (“alter Ausgustinus”), Hugh of St. Victor (c. 1096–1141) taught at the Augustinian Abbey of Saint Victor in Paris after which he is named. His numerous theological works and commentaries on Augustine were highly regarded, and the hundreds of original works that have survived in libraries all across Europe today reflect how popular and influential they were. Dom Aloysius Smith presents an English translation of Hugh of St. Victor’s Explanation of the Rule of St. Augustine from the original Latin.

Dom Aloysius Smith was a celebrated translator whose numerous translations include Spiritual Director and Physician: The Spiritual Treatment of Sufferers from Nerves and Scruples and Life of St. Agnes: Virgin and Martyr.

The Didascalicon of Hugh of St. Victor

Composed in Paris in the late 1120’s, Hugh of St. Victor’s Didascalicon provided intellectual and practical orientation for students of varying ages and levels of attainment who came in numbers to the newly founded Abbey of Saint Victor. As students took up studies at their different levels, this "medieval guide to the arts" offered a survey of all they should ultimately read, and of the order, manner, and purpose which should govern their reading, both in the arts or disciplines, and in Sacred Scripture. Jerome Taylor provides an in-depth introduction to The Didascalicon of Hugh of St. Victor where he discusses the life of Hugh of St. Victor, the translation process from Latin to English, and the various original manuscripts still in existence.

This treatise, produced in the early years of the twelfth-century Renaissance by one of its most important theologians and educators, offers a vision of human knowledge as an integrated whole that works to perfect the human person. It is a crucial text for those interested in the study of the Bible in the Middle Ages, in the history of schools and pedagogy, and in the survival of the classical tradition in the West.

—Caroline Walker Bynum, Columbia University

Jerome Taylor was a professor of Medieval Studies at Notre Dame University. He has translated, edited, or contributed to numerous books, including Medieval English Drama: Essays Critical and Contextual, Chaucer Criticism: An Anthology, and Nature, Man, and Society in the Twelfth-Century: Essays on New Theological Perspectives in the Latin West.

The Love Letters of Abelard and Heloise

Like Romeo and Juliet, Abelard and Heloise are one of the most celebrated couples of all time. And like the Shakespearean play, their love story is marred by tragedy. The letters contained in this volume are some of the most passionate love letters ever written. Translated from the original 1722 Latin edition into English, Ralph Fletcher Seymour provides a brief introduction to their powerful, heart-wrenching story.

The Love of Abelard and Heloise is one of the romances, founded in literal reality, that have never lost their power.

American Lithographer

Ralph Fletcher Seymour (1876–1966) was an artist-in-residence at Knox College at taught illustration at the Art Institute of Chicago. He was a noted designer of bookplates, and for almost seven decades he ran his own book publishing firm in Chicago.

St. Bernard of Clairvaux’s Life of St. Malachy of Armagh

Written before the Synod of Kells met in 1152, Bernard of Clairvaux’s biography of Malachy of Armagh covers Malachy’s entire spirit-filled life, from boyhood to his canonization. Before the English translation of St. Bernard’s Life of St. Malachy of Armagh, translator H. J. Lawlor provides an in-depth, 60+ page introduction to the state of the Irish Church during the time of St. Malachy’s life, a time he calls “a Reformation, though it might perhaps be more accurately described as an ecclesiastical revolution.” Also included with this volume are various letters and two sermons from St. Bernard.

Dr. Lawlor has given us a delightful translation of St. Bernard’s Life of St. Malachy of Armagh. His introduction and annotations admit us to an intimate view of the Church of Ireland in the most critical period of her history.

Church Quarterly Review

Hugh Jackson Lawlor (1860–1938) was Professor of Ecclesiastical History at the University of Dublin and was also an Anglican Dean. He was the author and translator of numerous books, including Eusebius, Bishop of Caesarea, The Heresy of the Phrygians, and A Fresh Authority for the Synod of Kells, 1152.

Concerning Grace and Free Will

Watkin W. Williams translates from the original Latin into English St. Bernard of Clairvaux’s treatise Concerning Grace and Free Will. Williams provides abundant notes and commentary on St. Bernard’s exposition, as well as an in-depth introduction.

Watkin Wynn Williams is the author and translator of numerous books, including Monastic Studies, Studies in St. Bernard of Clairvaux, The Moral Theology of the Sacrament of Penance, and St. Bernard: The Man and His Message.

Life and Works of Saint Bernard, vol. 1

In volume one of Samuel J. Eales’ comprehensive two-volume collection of letters from Saint Bernard, Eales provides an in-depth introduction to the life and works of St. Bernard, a Bernadine Chronology, and a quick list of dates for each of the included letters. Eales also provides a summary at the top of each letter, as well as concise biographical material for each letter’s recipient. Volume one includes letters 1–145.

In his writings great natural powers shine forth resplendently, an intellect more than that of the subtle Abelard, an eloquence that was irresistible, an imagination like a poet, and a simplicity that wins the admiration of all. Priests will find it a most valuable book for spiritual reading and sermons.

Catholic World

No writer of the Middle Ages is so fruitful of moral inspiration as S. Bernard, no character is more beautiful, and no man in any age whatever so faithfully represented all that was best in the impulses of his time, or exercise so powerful an influence upon it. . . . There is no man whose letters cover so many subjects of abiding interest, or whose influence was so widely spread.

Athenaeum

Samuel J. Eales was Principal of St. Boniface, Warminster, and the author and translator of numerous books, including Sermons Ancient and Modern, The Voice from the Cross: Seven Brief Meditations on the Words of Our Lord Jesus Christ Spoken from His Cross, and The Privilege of Prayer.

Life and Works of Saint Bernard, vol. 2

In volume two of Samuel J. Eales’ comprehensive two-volume collection of letters from Saint Bernard, Eales provides an introduction with a description of the position and site of the Abbey of Clairvaux and some notes on the Seal of St. Bernard. Eales also provides a summary at the top of each letter, as well as concise biographical material for each letter’s recipient. Volume one includes letters 146–380.

The letters are of great historic interest, and many of them most touching. The simple earnestness of the man, and his utter freedom from ambition, strike us on almost every page.

Notes and Queries

English readers of every class and creed owe a debt of gratitude to Dr. Eales for the great and useful work which he has undertaken. It is strange that now for the first time has such a task been even, as far as we are aware, approached. We have indeed much to be grateful for to the first English translator of S. Bernard's works.

This Month

St. Bernard’s Sermons on the Canticle of Canticles (2 vols.)

Translated from the original Latin into English, these sermons on the "Song of Solomon, instead of being dry-as-dust homilies, are as varied and many-colored as is the spiritual life, every aspect of which they discuss with equal solidity and elegance." Volumes one and two of St. Bernard’s Sermons on the Canticle of Canticles contains sermons 1–86.

He was gifted with a sublime eloquence, and so rich in saintly wisdom and eminent in holiness, that while we garner his teaching we should make his life our model. Bernard, the great contemplative, tasted all the sweetness of prayer; it you, too, would find a relish in prayer, ruminate his words. Not only are they spiritual and heart-penetrating, but they are also exquisite in style and calculated to impel you to the service of God.

—St. Bonaventure

Sermons of St. Bernard on Advent and Christmas

These 19 sermons, originally given in Latin at the Chapter-house at Clairvaux, all relate to the mysteries of Advent and Christmas. John Cuthbert Hedley, the Bishop of Newport from 1881–1915, provides and introduction to these illuminating sermons.

The Moral Concordances of Saint Anthony of Padua

St. Anthony of Padua was not only one of the greatest, but one of the most popular preachers of the Middle Ages. His extant sermons and sermon notes evince a grasp of the Scriptures which well entitled him to the name bestowed on him by Gregory IX, “The Ark of the Testament.” St. Anthony died in 1231, and it wasn’t until 1638 that the Moral Concordances were discovered in a library attached to the Church called Aracoeli, in Rome. J. M. Neale provides the English translation along with an in-depth introduction.

The book needs no commendation at our hands, it having already attained to the position of a standard work, yet we cannot do less than record our deliberate conviction that no clergyman’s library is complete without it.

Union Review

John Mason Neale was educated at Trinity College, Cambridge where he founded the Cambridge Camden Society (later known as the Ecclesiological Society). He was also the principal founder of the Anglican and Eastern Churches Association, a religious organization founded as the Anglican and Eastern Orthodox Churches Union in 1864. A well known hymnist and translator, his works include An Introduction to the History of the Holy Eastern Church, Essays on Liturgiology and Church History, and O come, O come, Emmanuel.

The Exempla or Illustrative Stories from the Sermones Vulgares of Jacques de Vitry

Jacques de Vitry was one of the most famous preachers of the Middle Ages, a true master of the medieval sermon form. This style used exempla, or examples, from everyday life, to illustrate the moral interpretation of Scripture passages. These exempla became themselves famous and widely used and offer a window into the moral imagination of the Christians of the Middle Ages, an imagination that intermixed the mundane with the fantastic and sublime. Preachers borrowed these exempla from each other and over the centuries they often took on established, proverbial forms. The exempla of Jacques de Vitry are extracted from his sermons, but they cannot be considered to have been written by him. Rather, they represent a body of fables, proverbs, and short tales that were widely used in the sermons of the Middle Ages and would often have been recognizable to audiences.

Thomas Frederick Crane studied law at Princeton and Columbia Law School and worked as a librarian at the newly founded Cornell University. At Cornell, he taught French, Italian, Spanish, as well as Medieval Literature. Crane was one of the founders of Journal of American Folklore and later served as the first Dean of the Arts College.

Treatise on Consummate Perfection

Together with St. Francis of Assisi, Catherine of Siena is one of the two patron saints of Italy. Of her extant writings, her Dialogue, an abundant number of letters, and a series of prayers, are well known. This smaller work, Treatise on Consummate Perfection, is also attributed to Catherine, and is also written in the form of a brief Dialogue.

Augusta Theodosia Drane (1823–1894) wrote numerous books of prose and poetry, including The History of Saint Dominic, The Life of St Catherine of Siena, The Knights of St John and Songs in the Night and Other Poems.

Mr. Thorold decidedly deserves the thanks of students of mysticism for his fine rendering of the Dialogue, and for his scholarly introduction. The Dialogue is a treasure-house of devotional inspiration to those who can read aright its messages, and the place it has held in the Church is sufficient guarantee of its astounding intellectual merit and its salutary efficacy.

Freeman’s Journal

Those who study mystical literature owe a debt of gratitude to Mr. Algar Thorold for rendering into English one of the great classics of mysticism. . . . Mr. Thorold's translation reads easily and well.

Scotsman

Mr. Thorold’s excellent essay on Mysticism shows an extensive acquaintance with leaders of modern thought outside the Catholic Church, and their views on the supernatural. The subject is beset with dangers, but the author has written nothing that is not in accordance with sound theology.

Tablet

The Latin Works and the Correspondence of Huldreich Zwingli (3 vols.)

“This is the gospel, that sins are remitted in the name of Christ; and no heart ever received tidings more glad.” Huldrych Zwingli’s contribution to the Reformation may have been just as important as Luther and Calvin’s, yet many still don’t know much about him, let alone read his powerful works. Zwingli preached against ecclesial corruption, fasting, the requirement of celibacy on the clergy, the veneration of saints, excommunication, and more—setting the stage for the Swiss Reformation.

The three volumes in The Latin Works and The Correspondence of Huldreich Zwingli contain the English translations of some of Zwingli’s most important letters, sermons, poems, tracts, and more. Each entry contains an introduction to the work and the editor has provided helpful notes. Also included is “The Original Life of Zwingli,” a short biography written in 1521 by Oswald Myconius—the first biography of Zwingli to be written, “A Short and Clear Exposition of the Christian Faith,” “Declaration of Huldreich Zwingli Regarding Original Sin,” one of Zwingli’s most powerful works: “Commentary on the True and False Religion,” and much more.

A translation of Zwingli’s works, to be placed alongside of the works of Luther and Calvin, is a boon to English readers who would acquaint themselves with the secret of this great reformer’s power.

Homiletic Review

The editor’s contribution shows that meticulous care in details which we have learned to expect from Dr. Jackson. It is a matter of congratulation that we are now to have in English a worthy presentation of the writings of a man whose appeal to the modern spirit is as direct as Luther’s and is often much more in the temper of our approach to the problems not only of practical religion but of national honor.

The Babylonian Talmud: A Translation and Commentary

The Talmud of Babylonia (a.k.a., the Bavli, or Babylonian Talmud), is a sustained commentary on the written and oral law of Israel. Compiled between 500–600 C.E., it offers a magnificent record of how Jewish scholars preserved a humane and enduring civilization. Representing the primary document of rabbinic Judaism, it throws considerable light on the New Testament as well.

This monumental English translation was completed a decade ago—but was extraordinarily expensive and difficult to find. Featuring translations by Jacob Neusner, Tzvee Zahavy, Alan Avery-Peck, B. Barry Levy, Peter Haas, and Martin S. Jaffee, and commentary and new introductions by Jacob Neusner, all 37 Talmudic tractates are available in this single searchable resource.

The Hebrew Bible: A Brief Socio-Literary Introduction

One of the pioneers of the socioliterary study of the Hebrew Bible introduces the beginning student to the social forces that shaped ancient Israel’s history and scriptures. Norman K. Gottwald brings new light to every book of the Hebrew Bible, and to the older traditions and sources on which those writings in part depend, paying particular attention to the rise and fall of empires and the social revolution achieved in Israel’s beginnings.

Rebecca J. Kruger Gaudino has prepared a clear and concise abridgement of Gottwald’s classic textbook, now thoroughly updated and lavishly illustrated with maps, diagrams, and photos.

Gottwald’s introduction takes you into the world from which the Hebrew Bible emerges. He recreates the full sweep of empires and shows how their literary traditions shape the literary traditions of the Hebrew Bible...

—Steed V. Davidson, assistant professor, Old Testament, Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary

Norman K. Gottwald is a professor of Old Testament Emeritus at New York Theological Seminary. He is the author of numerous works, including The Tribes of Yahweh, All the Kingdoms of the Earth, A Light to the Nations, and The Politics of Ancient Israel.

Rebecca J. Kruger Gaudino is an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ and holds a doctorate in English.

The Social History of Ancient Israel: An Introduction

Histories of ancient Israel have usually focused attention on major figures in powerful positions: kings, prophets, and patriarchs. Kessler asks about the larger social patterns that shaped the everyday life of ordinary people, from the emergence of Israel in the hills of Canaan, to the Jewish populations of Greek city-states in the Hellenistic age.

The introductory section includes discussion of social history as discipline and as method, event history and the “long haul,” the representation of social history, and the history of research. Two other sections explore the methods of the social history of Israel and the epochs of Israel’s social history, including discussions of environment as living space, Israel’s emergence as a kinship-based society, exile and its consequences, and more.

The Social History of Ancient Israel presents a coherent overarching social history that synthesizes the intensive work done on each of the major epochs of Israelite history from the tribal period to the Hellenistic era. It also helps to close the gap between continental and Anglo-American social critics of the Bible whose respective pursuits have not been widely shared with one another to date.

—Norman K. Gottwald, Pacific School of Religion

Rainer Kessler is a professor of Old Testament at the University of Marburg and author of a number of books in Hebrew Bible.

An Unsettling God: The Heart of the Hebrew Bible

In the pages of the Hebrew Bible, ancient Israel gave witness to its encounter with a profound and uncontrollable reality experienced through relationship. This book, drawn from the heart of foremost Old Testament theologian Walter Brueggemann’s Theology of the Old Testament, distills a career’s worth of insights into the core message of the Hebrew Bible. God is described there, Brueggemann observes, as engaging four “partners”—Israel, the nations, creation, and the human being—in the divine purpose. This volume presents Brueggemann at his most engaging, offering profound insights tailored especially for the beginning student of the Hebrew Bible.

A luminous and honest reading of the relationality that animates the Hebrew Scriptures. Brueggemann’s masterful exposition of the fragility and resilience of covenant will leave readers unsettled indeed, for here we glimpse a God who is indescribably powerful yet ‘deeply at risk’ in relationships...

—Carolyn J. Sharp, associate professor, Hebrew Scriptures, Yale Divinity School

Walter Brueggemann, through his teaching, lecturing, and writing, has effectively demonstrated the significance of the Old Testament for our fractured world today. Recognized as the preeminent interpreter of the ancient texts in relation to questions posed by a variety of academic disciplines, he has shown the way toward a compelling understanding of the major components of the faith and life of ancient Israel, especially its Psalms, the prophets, and the narratives. His award-winning Theology of the Old Testament quickly became a foundational work in the field.

Professor Brueggemann, who holds the ThD from Union Seminary, New York, and the PhD from St. Louis University, is William Marcellus McPheeters Professor of Old Testament at Columbia Theological Seminary, Decatur, Georgia. He was previously Professor of Old Testament at Eden Theological Seminary, St. Louis. His many Augsburg Fortress books, including The Threat of Life: Sermons on Pain, Power, and Weakness, exhibit a fecund combination of imaginative power, sound scholarship, and a passion of justice and redemption.

On November 17, 2000 the Association of Theological Booksellers presented Walter Brueggemann and Augsburg Fortress with a Theologos Award for Best General Interest Book 2000 at a dinner in Brueggemann’s honor. The award-winning book, Deep Memory, Exuberant Hope: Contested Truth in a Post-Christian World, which was edited by Patrick D. Miller, came out in July 2000.

Introduction to the Old Testament as Scripture

This introduction attempts to offer a different model for the discipline from that currently represented. It seeks to describe the form and function of the Hebrew Bible in its role as sacred scripture for Israel. It argues the case that the biblical literature has not been correctly understood or interpreted because its role as religious literature has not been correctly assessed.

Child’s Introduction stands as a monumental contribution to Old Testament scholarship. It will be, appropriately, a significant factor in biblcial studies for at least the balance of this century.

—John F. Priest, author

Brevard S. Childs is Sterling Professor of Divinity, Emeritus at Yale Divinity School (New Haven, Connecticut). He is the author of several Augsburg Fortress books, including Old Testament Theology in a Canonical Context and Biblical Theology of the Old and New Testaments.

The Hebrew Bible: A Comparative Approach

In The Hebrew Bible: A Comparative Approach, Christopher D. Stanley provides a Hebrew Bible textbook admirably suited to college and university courses in religious studies.

At once accessible and comprehensive, The Hebrew Bible approaches the Bible through the categories of comparative religion, carefully distinguishing the religion of ancient Israel from the religion represented in the Bible and discussing such dimensions of religion as the role of scripture, symbol and worldview, sacred narrative (myth), ritual and community, and the encounter with the holy.

Bravo! Finally, here is a thoughtful textbook on the Hebrew Bible and its context from the perspective of Religious Studies. This is a book that—without compromising academic rigor—caters to real students of the twenty-first centruy embarking on a semester-long course...

—Johanna Stiebert, associate professor, Hebrew Bible, University of Tennessee

Christopher D. Stanley is a professor of theology and teaches courses in Biblical studies and religion and culture at St. Bonaventure University. He is the author of numerous books and articles in biblical studies, including Paul and the Language of Scripture and Arguing with Scripture: The Rhetoric of Quotations in the Letters of Paul.

Fundamentals of Catholic Dogma

Heralded as a must-read for priests, students, and laypersons of the Catholic faith, Fundamentals of Catholic Dogma covers the various teachings and doctrines of the Catholic Church. This book provides Scriptural and historical support for Church dogma. Ott’s single-volume encyclopedia is written clearly and directly, providing an overview of Catholic dogma in an efficient and explicit manner.

Bible Conversations: Catholic-Protestant Dialogues on the Bible, Tradition, and Salvation

Bible Conversations includes 15 dialogues loosely based on the encounters of the author, a Catholic apologist, with Protestants over the course of nearly five years of private correspondence and internet discussion on lists and bulletin boards. Armstrong deals with the most important and fundamental issues that divide Protestants and Catholics:

  • The relationship of the Bible and tradition
  • The authority of the Church
  • The possibility of Bible-like infallibility for the Church and for tradition
  • The process of salvation
  • The relationship of faith and works
  • The doctrine of “salvation by works”—do Catholics believe in it?
  • The beauty of “grace alone”
  • And more!

Biblical Catholic Answers for John Calvin

In many ways, John Calvin has shaped the history of Protestantism even more than Martin Luther himself. Book four of John Calvin’s monumentally influential work of systematic theology, Institutes of the Christian Religion, gets to the heart of the disagreement between Catholics and Protestants. Armstrong's work is an in-depth critique of the major themes of this portion, from a biblical and Catholic perspective. The back-and-forth, Socratic nature of this volume allows the reader to consider Calvin’s arguments and ponder orthodox Catholic replies to them, deciding which are more plausible or have more of a “ring of truth” to them.

Calvin himself claimed that his work was supposed to be primarily for students and laypeople (the masses), not scholars and theologians. He wrote: “My intention was only to furnish a kind of rudiments, by which those who feel some interest in religion might be trained to true godliness. . . . in a simple and elementary form adapted for instruction.” His goals were to “assist the simple in this matter, and, as it were, lend them their hand to guide and assist them in finding the sum of what God has been pleased to teach us in His Word” and provide “a summary of Christian doctrine.”

Therefore, a popular-level critique from a Catholic perspective (the same that Calvin opposes throughout his work) is altogether appropriate—and long overdue. Armstrong has deliberately kept the polemics to a bare minimum, even though Calvin is often highly provocative and polemical (and insulting toward Catholicism and Catholics). The goal of this volume is to concentrate on rational arguments from Scripture and history. Also included are 66 “ecumenical” pages detailing where Catholics and Calvin (and Calvinists) can agree—on a surprisingly great many things.

Biblical Catholic Eucharistic Theology

Catholic apologist and prolific author Dave Armstrong has compiled his writing on the Eucharist and the Sacrifice of the Mass, 15 years of internet dialogues summarized in a Scripture-packed 23 chapters. Armstrong covers an ample range of topics:

  • The special presence of God in physical objects prior to the incarnation
  • Comparison of the indwelling and the Real Presence
  • Doubting disciples in the Eucharistic discourse of John 6
  • Exclusion of non-Catholics from Catholic communion
  • St. Augustine’s and John Calvin’s views
  • The Church Fathers on the Sacrifice of the Mass
  • St. Paul’s “priestly” references
  • Biblical, analogical arguments for the Sacrifice of the Mass
  • The Protestant “idolatry” accusation
  • Biblical evidence for wholehearted formal, liturgical worship

The volume also examines the facts of Church history in depth, with much corroboration from Protestant scholarly sources. Armstrong’s explanations help make Catholic teachings on the Holy Eucharist and the Mass understandable, plausible, and easy to harmonize with the teaching of the Bible.

Biblical Catholic Salvation: Faith Working through Love

Catholic apologist and author Dave Armstrong leads the reader on a fascinating theological journey through many different ideas related to salvation and justification theology (soteriology). Armstrong devotes special emphasis to demonstrating that Catholics do not believe in “works-salvation.” It may surprise some to learn that Catholics, like Protestants, embrace Grace Alone and reject both Pelagianism and semi-Pelagianism.

The overwhelming theme is the biblical evidence for Catholic soteriological positions. To that end, these chapters are devoted specifically to a critique of Calvinism—or self-described “Reformed” theology—and its beliefs with regard to the five points of what is known as “TULIP”: total depravity, unconditional election, limited atonement, irresistible grace, and perseverance of the saints. This volume includes hundreds of biblical passages fully written out (RSV) for the convenience of the reader.

Biblical Evidence for the Communion of Saints

This volume consists entirely of papers, essays, and dialogues originally posted on Dave Armstrong’s website and blog. Originally written between 1995 and 2011, they have been edited, revised, and combined in various ways, in order to clarify Armstrong’s thoughts and eliminate repetition. Most of the queries that Armstrong originally responded to came from the Protestant brethren in Christ. These dialogues afforded him the opportunity to defend and clarify what Catholics believe with regard to the communion of saints and to demonstrate that Catholic beliefs are in harmony with both the Holy Scriptures and the beliefs of the early Church.

This volume’s 21 chapters cover many topics, including the invocation, intercession, and veneration of saints and angels, as well as images, idolatry, relics, purgatory, prayer for the dead, and “controversial” devotional practices. It is Dave Armstrong's hope and prayer that his ruminations along these lines may be edifying.

Development of Catholic Doctrine: Evolution, Revolution, or an Organic Process?

C. S. Lewis, the famous Anglican writer, once wrote: “The very possibility of progress demands that there should be an unchanging element . . . the positive historical statements made by Christianity have the power . . . of receiving, without intrinsic change, the increasing complexity of meaning which increasing knowledge puts into them.”

Doctrine clearly develops within Scripture—that's the nature of “progressive revelation”. A few examples include the doctrines of the afterlife, the Trinity, the Messiah (eventually revealed as God the Son), the Holy Spirit (Divine Person in the New Testament), the equality of Jews and Gentiles, bodily resurrection, and sacrifice of lambs evolving into the sacrifice of Christ. This book serves as an introduction to the notion of doctrinal development, written from a popular lay apologetics standpoint.

Martin Luther: Catholic Critical Analysis and Praise

The views set forth in this volume are certainly one-sided—and purposely so, in order to form a conscious counter-argument to the accepted Protestant “mythology,” of Martin Luther.

The objective Christian student of 16th-century Church history needs to consult works written from a critical Catholic (as well as Protestant) perspective, in order to foster a closer examination—and perhaps a partial reappraisal—of Luther. The full, multi-faceted truth concerning important historical figures is invariably more fascinating than the usual myths that circulate about. Dave Armstrong aims to present Luther as he was: no more, no less.

Armstrong does not regard Luther as an essentially “evil” or “bad” man, and does not deny at all his good intentions and sincerity—though he often questions Luther’s wisdom and foresight, as will be evident. He admires Martin Luther in many ways, especially for Luther’s passion and boldness and bravery in standing up for what he believed. This volume is not about “Luther-bashing” or attempted historical revisionism. It is simply a Catholic examination of Martin Luther: critical in the expected areas, but also happily “ecumenical” in those instances where Luther is an eloquent proponent of a position that Catholics also hold.

More Biblical Evidence for Catholicism

In More Biblical Evidence for Catholicism, Dave Armstrong’s purpose is to accumulate biblical arguments in support of distinctively Catholic doctrinal positions, with Protestant readers particularly in mind. He touches on the closely related subjects of sola Scriptura (the Protestant notion of Scripture Alone), the Catholic Church’s high regard for Holy Scripture, and criticm from the separated Christian brethren regarding matters of ecclesiology (church) and tradition. Additionally, Armstrong devotes a fair degree of emphasis to certain common and erroneous charges against the Catholic Church and to back-and-forth discussion so that readers can have a sense of interaction with opponents of various Catholic doctrines—as well as a sense of how such charges and opponents might be answered with Scripture, history, and reason.

Orthodoxy and Catholicism: A Comparison

In this volume, Dave Armstrong compares Orthodoxy and Catholicism from a Catholic perspective. He covers such topics as oneness and ecclesiology, the papacy, cæsaropapism, ecumenical councils, doctrinal developments, modernity, contraception, and divorce.

The Catholic Mary: Quite Contrary to the Bible?

Theology and beliefs concerning the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of our Lord Jesus, have long been contentious issues between Catholics and Protestants. The latter often maintain that “the Catholic Mary” is a corruption of the true biblical Mary: the humble and lowly handmaiden.

Catholic apologist Dave Armstrong, a former evangelical Protestant, shows how the “Catholic” and the “biblical” Mary are indeed one and the same—there's no conflict. Armstrong tackles controversial topics such as Mary's Immaculate Conception, Assumption, perpetual virginity, the term of “spouse of the Holy Spirit,” the request for Mary to intercede, the Rosary, and the flowery and seemingly excessive devotional language of the saints. And he considers the idea of Mary as distributor of God’s grace and salvation—what St. Paul and indeed all of us are meant to be. Armstrong provides biblical and rational support for all Catholic Marian beliefs and practices, making them accessible, understandable, and articulable by all who accept the inspiration of the Bible.

Understanding “Our Father”: Biblical Reflections on the Lord’s Prayer

The prayer at hand has been called many things: the Pater Noster, the Our Father, the Model Prayer, the Lord’s Prayer. In Understanding “Our Father,” Dr. Scott Hahn presents a unique meditation on this common prayer, leading readers to consider its wealth of meaning. Relying on the Fathers and Doctors of the Church as well as on Sacred Scripture, Dr. Hahn takes each of the seven petitions of the Our Father individually and draws out the implications of the prayer given to us by Christ Himself.

Spirit and Life: Essays on Interpreting the Bible in Ordinary Time

The prayer at hand has been called many things: the Pater Noster, the Our Father, the Model Prayer, the Lord’s Prayer. In Understanding “Our Father,” Dr. Scott Hahn presents a unique meditation on this common prayer, leading readers to consider its wealth of meaning.

Scripture Matters: Essays on Reading the Bible from the Heart of the Church

In Scripture Matters: Essays on Reading the Bible from the Heart of the Church Dr. Hahn takes a penetrating look into the depths of Scripture, showing the reader how to uncover its many layers of meaning and inspiration.

Scripture Matters serves as both an instructional guide to reading the Bible and a delightful meditation on the grandeur of God’s Word. Dr. Hahn effectively illustrates his discussion with the writings of Saint Thomas Aquinas, Saint Josemaría Escrivá, Cardinal Ratzinger, and other exemplary scholars of Scripture who truly speak “from the heart of the Church.”

Answering the New Atheism: Dismantling Dawkins’ Case against God

Atheist Richard Dawkins thinks that

  • Religious belief is a virus that infects inferior genes
  • Religion is not only a form of infantile regression—it’s an especially pernicious kind of insanity
  • “Dyed-in-the-wool faith-heads are immune to argument”
  • Teaching religion to your children is a form of child abuse

Dawkins’ inflammatory rhetoric and bad reasoning are misleading millions of readers who don’t see the holes in his argument. In a lively and fair analysis, Hahn and Wiker expose the shoddy reasoning, logical blunders, and factual errors of Dawkins’ bestseller The God Delusion. Along the way, Hahn and Wiker offer a cogent and convincing argument for God’s existence.

Mission and Expansion of Christianity in the First Three Centuries, vol. 1

A highly significant set of volumes, Mission and Expansion of Christianity in the First Three Centuries (2 Vols.) is the first attempt ever to chronicle the history of missions from the first three centuries, although church history and dogma have previously been charted.

In A History of the Vaudois Church, Antoine Monastier posits that the Vaudois church is the link that unites Protestant churches directly to the primitive churches born from the apostles. Beginning with the state of the Christian church at the accession of the emperor Constantine, Monastier provides a succinct history of the Christian church in general before focusing on the origin of the Vaudois church and its history up to the nineteenth century. Includes dozens of illustrations and maps.

Some Remarks upon the Ecclesiastical History of the Ancient Churches of Piedmont

First published at the end of the 17th century, Peter Allix's Remarks upon the Ecclesiastical History of the Ancient Churches of Piedmont was written in defense of the Albigensian and Waldensian churches against charges of heresy by the Bishop of Meaux, Jacques-Bénigne Bossuet, in his History of the Variations of the Protestant Churches.

An Inquiry into the History and Theology of the Ancient Vallenses and Albigenses

A refutation of Jacques-Bénigne Bossuet's History of the Variations of the Protestant Churches, George Stanley Faber's Inquiry into the History and Theology of the Ancient Vallenses and Albigenses is a thorough account of the history and theology of these two churches. Faber argues that the Waldensians had always held a system of doctrine and practice that was fundamentally the same as that of the Reformed Churches of the sixteenth century.

An Historical Defence of the Waldenses or Vaudois

The writer of the following treatises, Jean Rodolphe Peyran, was a native of the valleys of Piedmont, where both his father and grandfather had been raised in the office of Moderator of the Waldensian church. Like them, he served as a pastor and in the office of the Moderator. This collection of his treatises, translated into English, covers Waldensian church history, provides biographical sketches of some of the Waldensian church's most important leaders, connects the principles of the Waldensian church with those of the Reformation in the sixteenth century, documents that the ancient Waldenses perpetuated an episcopal form of church government, and more.

War With the Saints: Persecutions of the Vaudois under Pope Innocent III

War with the Saints focuses on the twelfth century and the Fourth Lateran Council when Pope Innocent III declared the Waldensians heretics. Around this time, more than 80 Waldensians were burned as heretics, and several centuries of persecution followed. Charlotte Elizabeth traces the horror and heroism of the Waldensian peoples as they struggled to survive the crusades threatening to destroy them.

Bible Doctrine

At the Mennonite General Conference of 1911, a committee of ten was appointed to prepare a work on Christian doctrine. The design of the work was not to serve as a confession of faith, but rather as an exposition of the doctrines which a confession of faith ought to contain. A table of contents was formed and writers were chosen to prepare each chapter. They divided the contents into eight distinct sections:

  • God and Man
  • Satan and His Works
  • The Plan of Salvation
  • The Church
  • Christian Ordinances
  • Christian Principles
  • Christian Graces
  • Future Destiny of Man

Christ’s Headship of the Church: According to Anabaptist Leaders Whose Followers Became Mennonites

The movement, known as Anabaptism, affords a rich field for speculation because of the fact that it came into such prominence during the Reformation period; because so many divisions, sects, and denominations either grew out of it or came through it; and because of the nature of the sources upon which we are dependent for our information. Culling a mass of historical material, Langenwalter maintains that only through the lives and writings of its early leaders can a true understanding of Anabaptism be formed.

The Dutch Anabaptists

Henry Elias Dosker delivered the Stone Lectures at Princeton Theological Seminary in 1918, and The Dutch Anabaptists includes the original content of those lectures, revised and expanded.

Manual of Bible Doctrines

Manual of Bible Doctrines was written for those new to the Christian faith, particularly those interested in the Mennonite faith. Arranged by topic, Kauffman walks the reader through the most important doctrines of the faith, including conversion, justification, sin, repentance, baptism, and more.

The Mennonites of America

Beginning with the Anabaptists and the Mennonites of Europe, C. Henry Smith traces the history of the Mennonite church and its founding of Mennonite colonies in America. Having founded the first German colony in America and being among the pioneers in many of the frontier settlements in the westward expansion of the American people, the American Mennonite story proves to be an important part of American history.

Mennonite Church History

Hartzler and Kauffman provide an in-depth history of the Mennonite Church. Tracing their roots to the Church of the first century, the authors then outline the various precursors to Menno Simons teachings—the Novatians, Catharists, Paulicians, Henricans, Albigenses, Waldenses, and the Anabaptists. Kauffman and Hartzler then move to the European Mennonites and the new European settlements in America. Packed with interesting historical documents, such as the "Mennonite Confession of Faith" and letters dating from the seventeenth century from Mennonite leaders protesting slavery, this volume is indispensible for understanding the roots of Mennonite history and doctrine.

Mennonite Handbook of Information

This handbook serves as a quick reference guide for brief accounts of events that happened along the historical thread of more than two hundred years relating to the development of the Mennonite church in the United States of America.

Menno Simons: His Life, Labors, and Teachings

John Horsch's biography of Menno Simons provides an important history of the Anabaptists and early Mennonites, focusing on Menno Simons' life and works.

Horsch also provides an Anabaptist dictionary of key people, places, and doctrines as well as an abbreviated time-line of Menno Simons' various points of doctrine and practice.

Mennonites in the World War or Nonresistance under Test

As one who was actively engaged in looking after the welfare of young male Mennonites, who for conscience sake, could take no part in the First World War, J. S. Hartzler was selected by the Mennonite General Conference to undertake a careful writing of the events, to make a clear statement of issues involved, and to create a record of what nonresistant people did to meet the problems arising from the war. In the introduction provided by Albert J. Steiner, he writes: "The principles of peace and opposition to war have been deeply implanted into the very lifeblood of every true Mennonite through four centuries, and to violate this now would rob them of a sacred religious principle, giving them a guilty conscience before God." This volume provides an important history of the Mennonite church during one of the most trying times in American history.

The Message and the Message-Bearer

This handbook for Mennonite missionaries illuminates the core principles of the faith and the spirit of the message-bearers "devoted to the great cause of carrying the Gospel of Christ into all the world."

The Peaceful Kingdom of Christ is early Anabaptist writer Peter Jan Twisk's commentary on the twentieth chapter of the book of Revelations. Written around 1600 AD, this valuable commentary was first translated from the Dutch into German in 1875 before this English edition was translated in 1913.

Rise and Fall of the Anabaptists

This scholarly review of German Anabaptists during the Reformation details the split in the Anabaptist community during the Münster Rebellion of 1534–1535. Interpreting this episode is where Bax contends previous historians are at fault in their blanket assessment of Anabaptism and its historical leaders.

Spiritual and Anabaptist Writers: Documents Illustrative of the Radical Reformation

This volume comprises of a group of sixteenth-century writings once cherished and influential in fairly wide circles and intrinsically of no slight importance, but little known to modern readers. This anthology of Anabaptist writings includes sermons, addresses, letters, essays, and more, and editor George Williams supplies notes and annotations on all of them.

The Complete Works of Menno Simon, vol. 1

First ordained as a Roman Catholic priest, Menno Simons later rejected the Catholic Church and joined with the Anabaptists in 1536. For the next twenty-five years, Menno's writings and sermons on adult baptism, piety, and nonviolence would become so influential, other leaders began referring to the Dutch Anabaptists as Mennonites.

Comfort Those Who Grieve

Until the end of time, when the curse of sin is finally removed, suffering will be a large part of the human experience—and a large part of that suffering will be walking through the painful reality of death. Death is not foreign territory that ministers of grace walk upon. As a result, “Death,” writes Paul Tautges, “provides a natural opportunity not only for ministry to others, but also for personal growth in ministers.” Therefore, church shepherds must not waste these precious and painful occasions that God provides for the demonstration of mercy and the advantage of the gospel.

This book is a treasure chest of pastoral theology that will equip ministers to reach out to those who grieve with the Christ-centered comfort of God rooted in the gospel. The theological foundation espoused here, as well as the numerous practical helps that are included, will help any servant of the Lord to point the hearts and minds of the bereaved to the “man of sorrows” who is “acquainted with grief” (Isa. 53:3).

Counsel Your Flock: Fulfilling Your Role as a Teaching Shepherd

“One of the surest signs of the blessing of God upon His people is the gift of spiritual shepherds who faithfully care for His flock,” writes Paul Tautges. Sadly, pastors today have become business professionals who are no longer content to shepherd their flocks by teaching the Word of God and caring for their souls, but instead farm their people out to psychological counselors, who are incapable of meeting the real needs of people.

Here is an urgent appeal for teaching shepherds to return to authentic biblical ministry: to be tenacious in their study and preaching of the whole counsel of God, and tender in their application of its demands to the lives of God’s sheep through the personal and pastoral ministry of counseling. In his companion book, Counsel One Another, Paul defended the role of every believer in the discipleship process; here he concentrates on the specific ministry of pastors and elders, particularly their role in leading God’s flock to spiritual maturity and equipping it for effective service. He reminds ministers that they have a privileged responsibility to function as undershepherds for Christ, the Chief Shepherd, but those who are faithful will receive an eternal reward.

Visit the Sick: Ministering God's Grace in Times of Illness

The demands of the twenty-first-century have led to the neglect of certain essential responsibilities in the life of a Christian. One of those is the visitation and care of the sick in our congregations. This book is designed to instruct and motivate pastors, church leaders, and other care-giving Christians through the counsel of our heroes of church history, to recapture the practice of visiting the sick. This is accomplished by considering three specific areas. First, is our commitment to the theological as we consider how to most effectively care for their souls. Second, is our commitment to the pastoral, which instructs us how to proceed with wisdom and discernment in the variety of circumstances we will face. Third, is our commitment to the practical so that the manner in which we care for the sick will help, not hinder our effort to communicate biblical truth to them.

Abide in Christ

In 31 meditations on John 15:1–2, Andrew Murray explores what Jesus meant when he said “Abide in me.” Murray illuminates that command in connection with the Parable of the Vine and—step-by-step—uncovers how the promise-precept is meant for us, how surely grace is provided to enable us to obey it, how indispensible the experience of its blessing is to a healthy Christian life, and how fruitful the blessings are that flow from it.

Be Perfect!

Containing a month of daily meditations, this volume takes the reader through the Scriptures, noting the principal passages in which the word “perfect” occurs. In each case, Murray examines the context of its use to find what the word was meant to convey. A simple yet powerful guidebook, each meditation runs 4 or 5 pages.

Have Mercy upon Me: The Prayer of the Penitent in the Fifty-First Psalm Explained and Applied

Containing a month of daily meditations on the 51st Psalm, Murray’s exploration of Miserere is divided into five parts:

  • The Great Petition
  • The Confession
  • The Prayer of Forgiveness
  • The Prayer for Renewal
  • The Sacrifice of Thanksgiving

Let Us Draw Nigh!

In 12 meditations on Hebrews 10:19–25, Murray explores what it means to, with the power of Christ's redemption, enter in and dwell in the Father’s presence. With reverence and simple language, Murray guides the reader to a full understanding of this central message from the epistle to the Hebrews in these 12 meditations:

  • The Entrance into the Holiest
  • Boldness through the Blood
  • The New and Living Way
  • A Great Priest over the House of God
  • With a True Heart
  • The Fullness of Faith
  • Our Hearts Sprinkled
  • Our Body Washed
  • Let Us Draw Near
  • Let Us Hold Fast the Confession of Our Hope
  • Let Us Provoke unto Love
  • Let Us Not Forsake the Assembling Together

The Children for Christ

Divided between the Old and New Testaments, The Children for Christ contains 52 readings—one for each week of the year—on the subject of parental duty. Each lesson begins with a passage from the Bible, Murray’s thoughts on how the passage reflectson and pertains to parental duty, and finally a short prayer. Published over 100 years ago, the lessons in The Children for Christ are still applicable for today’s parents wishing to learn more about strengthening their Christian household.

The Mystery of the True Vine

The Mystery of the True Vine, written for young adults, contains 31 meditations on the Parable of the Vine. As Murray writes in the Preface, “I feel as if there is not a passage in God’s Word in which our union to Christ Jesus, with its call to entire consecration, its privilege of unbounding joy, much fruitfulness, and prevailing prayer, is put with equal clearness or force. And I have felt drawn to try and write what young Christians might easily apprehend, as a help to them to take up that position in which the Christian life must be a success.” The Mystery of the True Vine is also great tool for Sunday school teachers or parents wanting a step-by-step guide through the lessons found in John 15.

The Spirit of Christ: Thoughts on the Indwelling of the Holy Spirit in the Believer and the Church

The aim of Andrew Murray's Spirit of Christ is to comfort, console, strengthen, inspire, and lift up the believer by showing the all-sufficiency of the Holy Spirit to guide the soul. It contains 31 meditations on the Holy Spirit—one for each day of the month, and—with one exception—the passages of Scripture selected for comment are from the New Testament.

Thy Will Be Done

In 31 meditations for a month of study, Andrew Murray discusses different phases of New Testament teachings concerning the will of God. The meditations average six pages in length and work wonderfully for personal or group study. Meditations include “Suffering According to the Will of God,” “Praying According to God's Will,” and “Doing the Will of God from the Heart”—plus 28 more devotional studies.

Waiting on God! Daily Messages for a Month

In 31 meditations for a month of study, Andrew Murray mines the Old and New Testaments to remind us of God’s love and watchfulness over our lives. “Cease from expecting the least good from yourself, or the least help from anything there is in man, and just yield yourself unreservedly to God to work in you: He will do all for you.” The meditations average six pages in length, and work wonderfully for personal or group study.

With Christ in the School of Prayer

In 31 meditations for a month of study, Andrew Murray shows readers how to strengthen their prayer life. “Christ teaches us to pray not only by example, by instruction, by command, by promises, but by showing us Himself, the ever-living intercessor, as our Life.” Studies include “Lord! Teach Us to Pray,” “In Spirit and Truth,” “The Infinite Fatherliness of God,” and “The Power of United Prayer,”—plus 27 more devotional and practical meditations on prayer. The meditations average six pages in length, and work wonderfully for personal or group study.

Working for God!

In 31 meditations for a month of study, Working for God! is a devotional for those working in ministry. Drawing from the Bible for inspirational thoughts on the hard work and the reward of ministerial duties, studies include “The Father Abiding in Me Doeth the Work,” “Faith Working by Love,” and “A Doer that Worketh Shall Be Blessed in Doing,”—plus 28 more practical meditations.

Day by Day in Prayer

This volume explores the subject of prayer and the prayers of the Bible. The daily readings in this book focus on the prayers that God has seen fit to record for us, on incidents where prayer was involved, and on various references to prayer. The believer who takes time daily to read and meditate upon these portions will find enormous help from them, and gain a greater understanding of prayer.

Day by Day: Divine Titles

A collection of the names and divine titles found in Scriptures are considered. Whether it is such attributes as glory, truth, holiness, or righteousness, each title provides fresh glimpses of the character of God. Such is His grandeur and glory that were we able to fully appreciate each title, we would still have to acknowledge that these are but the fringes of His ways. Divine Titles is a book that will cause you to be filled with wonder and worship.

Day by Day through the Old Testament

The size of the Old Testament, covering as it does approximately 3/4 of the total text of the Bible, may contribute to so few believers giving the time and place to it that they should, to the impoverishing of their spiritual understanding and experience. The Old Testament was the Bible used by our Lord when He was here; it was also the Bible of the early church as it spread the gospel of the grace of God across the Near East. Day by Day through the Old Testament, though necessarily selective in the text considered, is intended to promote a wider reading, and a more fruitful understanding of the whole of the Old Testament. Also included is an introduction to the Old Testament as a whole, reviews of the contents and emphases of the books, along with five maps illustrating some of the geography and topography involved.

Day by Day: Bible Promises

A daily devotional that seeks out and illuminates many Bible promises from both the Old and New Testaments. Truly international in flavor, the daily studies are written by twenty-four contributors, including well known speakers and writers from Great Britain, Ireland, USA, Canada, Singapore, and Hong Kong. This book, whether purchased for the intention of daily reading or as a reference book, will make an excellent addition to every library.

Day by Day Moments with the Master

In these daily meditations, the selected readings from the four Gospels are intended to keep us in the company of Christ. They are set out in a proposed historical and geographical framework in four sections:

  • Part 1: Preparation and Early Public Ministry
  • Part 2: Extended Ministry in Galilee and the North
  • Part 3: Ministry in Jerusalem, Judaea Beyond Jordan
  • Part 4: The Son of Man Must Suffer and Rise Again

Day by Day with Bible Characters

Day by Day with Bible Characters explores the lives of different Bible characters in the Old and New Testaments. This volume provides helpful comments on the lives of well over two hundred people who figure, with some prominence, in the record of Scripture.

Day by Day in the Psalms

Day by Day in the Psalms provides meditations and daily readings through the Psalms. This is not a straight-through, systematic reading of the Psalms, but an unfolding of some of the major themes contained therein. Its aim therefore is not so much exegetical or expositional, although both of these aspects are not lacking. But the main intent of Day by Day in the Psalms is practical and devotional, designed to touch the heart with some of the spiritual treasures enshrined in these "songs from experience."

Day by Day: Christ Foreshadowed

Many of the Old Testament references to Christ in type and shadow have been taken and linked with their glorious fulfillment in the New Testament. A daily reading from Scripture heads each page, followed by an outline of the truth contained within that portion. Readers will be encouraged, on a daily basis, to make a careful study of Scripture, and thereby be strengthened in their faith.

Day by Day through the New Testament

Day by Day through the New Testament is designed to encourage and to assist Christians in their daily reading of the New Testament. This is divided in order into 365 separate passages, each being dated for consecutive daily reading. A whole page of devotional and expository material is provided to assist in the understanding of each passage. Introductions to each New Testament book, three maps, additional surveys, and an index are included.

Day by Day: Bible Commands

This daily devotional provides the reader with ample opportunity to get to know the range of commandments within the Bible and its careful reading should engender a desire to obey them in our daily lives. In the editor’s words, "In this way we can express our love for the Savior and, in return, experience His love for us and get to know Him better."

Day by Day: Pictures and Parables

The world has a well-known cliché that "a picture is worth a thousand words." In His earthly ministry, this was a lesson that could well have been taught by the Lord as, in communicating divine truth, He so often resorted to metaphors and illustrations. Day by Day: Pictures and Parables provides daily readings and meditations on pictures and parables from both the Old and New testaments, explaining them and applying them to today’s readers.

Day by Day: Bible Questions

Each daily meditation focuses on a significant scripture question, that is, a question actually asked in the Bible, and provides an exposition and an application. Many of the questions of the Bible are ordinary enough, but beyond these lay the big questions of life and existence, issues of identity and purpose, "Who am I? How did I get here? Why am I suffering?" Instinctively, as believers we turn to the word of God for answers and we are not disappointed! Day by Day: Bible Questions contains a careful selection of questions which instruct, challenge, and edify. As would be expected there is considerable prominence given to the questions of the Gospels, but famous and important questions are considered throughout the Bible by an international team of contributors. Thus, the reader is presented with a rich digest of teaching, with an emphasis on personal and practical application.

Day by Day: Paradise to the Promised Land

The daily readings and meditations in Day by Day: Paradise to the Promised Land go through the Pentateuch, all the way from Adam in the Garden to the nation in the Land. As the editor says in his introduction, "No one could read through the New Testament without appreciating how much of it is built upon and develops types and principles that are first revealed in the Old." In this way, Paradise to the Promised Land contains material of a Christ-exalting and devotional character and meditations which are intensely practical.

The Call to Contentment: Life Lessons from the Beatitudes

When life is tough, God is still enough! Let The Call to Contentment help you learn the secret to being content regardless of your circumstances.

As they unpack these simple statements by the Master teacher, you'll feel the call to contentment settle upon your own heart.

Islam: A Challenge to Faith

The purpose of this book is to present Islam as a challenge to the faith and enterprise of the Christian church. "But if we are to reach that world with the Gospel of Christ we must first know of it and know it."

The Disintegration of Islam

Dr. Zwemer traces the collapse of Islam as a political power in Europe, Asia, and Africa, as well as the inevitable effect of the impact of Western Civilization at the turn of the 20th century. Originally lectures delivered at Princeton Theological Seminary, the Theological Seminary of the Reformed Church in America, and at the Theological Seminary of the American Mission in Cairo, Zwemer later revised and expanded the lectures into book form.

The Moslem Doctrine of God

Zwemer investigates not only the Qur'an, but also the Hadith (the records of the authoritative sayings and doings of Muhammad), as well as Islamic orthodox traditions in this concise and focused study into the Muslim doctrine of God.

The Law of Apostasy in Islam

In The Law of Apostasy in Islam, Zwemer uses the Qur'an and other Arabic sources to challenge Islamic scholarship that champions severe punishment—even death—for those that convert to other religions.

Islam and Missions

Islam and Missions contains the papers read at the Second Missionary Conference on behalf of the Mohammedan World at Lucknow in 1911.

The Worthy Champion: A Christology of Revelation

Brian R. Hand analyzes Revelation’s Christology and literary composition in The Worthy Champion. A valuable resource for Christological and New Testament studies, literary analysis, and biblical theology, The Worthy Champion shows how Revelation’s literary composition reveals Christ. Analyzing the genre of Revelation, Hand supports its status as prophetic rather than apocalyptic. He also discusses Revelation’s use of time, space, and physical structure and its characterization, plot, and symbolism and other literary devices. Each discussion includes Christological implications, and the last chapter synthesizes Christology with literary analysis. Hand’s conclusion includes homiletical values for Revelation’s Christology in preaching.

The Word of God in the Child of God: Exegetical, Theological, and Homiletical Reflections from the 119th Psalm

Psalm 119 is the prayer of one who delights and lives by the Torah. The longest of all the psalms, it is a Hebrew-alphabetical acrostic poem. George J. Zemek provides a thorough study on Psalm 119, studying its various elements and contemporary applicability. Zemek presents a comprehensive introduction to the psalm which analyzes its critical and conservative evaluations, date and authorship, literary vehicles, and textual assessment. He also includes an analytical and theological overview of the text. This volume provides translation and notes, synopsis and outlines, and commentary on each of the twenty-two stanzas.

New Testament Studies, vol. 1: Luke the Physician

The first of five volumes of New Testament studies, this volume is focused entirely on Luke, whose writings make up the third New Testament gospel as well as the book of Acts. Questions regarding authorship, linguistics, and a comparison of the gospel of Luke to that of John are included in this valuable study.

New Testament Studies, vol. 2: The Sayings of Jesus

"In St. Matthew are found about 112 words, and in St. Luke (without the Acts) about 261, which occur in these gospels and do not occur elsewhere in the New Testament." Harnack prefaced this volume with those words, analyzing the instances of each of those words within those two gospels. His linguistic and historical investigation of Matthew and Luke are thought-provoking and provide a fresh way to see the words of Jesus as told in those two New Testament resources.

New Testament Studies, vol. 3: The Acts of the Apostles

The book of Acts contains an incredible amount of theological importance, as well as great historical value. Undertaking the enormous task of analyzing this book, Harnack does so within the frame of his vast historical knowledge. Sections contained discuss the chronological data, nations and cities included, the treatment of persons in Acts, miracles and works of the spirit, sources and their values, and instances of inaccuracy and of discrepancy.

New Testament Studies, vol. 4: The Date of the Acts and of the Synoptic Gospels

Based on literary analysis and historical fact, this volume discusses the authorship of the gospel of Luke. Then, compiling biblical data, New Testament Studies, Vol. 4 thoroughly dissects issues of when each of the Synoptic Gospels was written, as well as the book of Acts. A chapter entitled "The Primitive Legends of Christendom" concludes this informative resource.

New Testament Studies, vol. 5: Bible Reading in the Early Church

The private usage of the Scriptures is a right that has had an interesting journey and a surprising amount of controversy. Particularly between the Catholic and Protestant Churches, division has been seen as to whether or not individuals may read the Bible, and several noted theologians have debated the topic heavily: Lessing, Goeze, and Walch. Separating the historical analysis by time period, Harnack methodically discusses the subject.

How to Study the New Testament: The Gospels and Acts

There could be nobody better than Henry Alford to address the question of how to approach the study of the New Testament. Alford, who spent the better part of twenty years on The Greek Testament by Henry Alford, knows the New Testament inside and out. How to Study the New Testament: The Gospels and Acts shows Alford’s ability to break down his insights and experiences into an easily understandable and highly practical tool for biblical study that will be quite advantageous to all who read it.

How to Study the New Testament: The Epistles (First Section)

The second of three practical applications of New Testament studies, this volume covers 1&2 Thessalonians, 1&2 Corinthians, Galatians, Romans, Colossians, Philemon, and Ephesians, and is a detailed, informative, and easily comprehendible guide to the Epistles. This resource is an excellent complement to How to Study the New Testament: The Gospels and Acts.

How to Study the New Testament: The Epistles (Second Section) and Revelation

Wrapping up notes for the remainder of the Epistles, Alford ends his New Testament study guide series by delving into the book of Revelation. Alford’s three volumes of study guides are a highly comprehensive overview of how to approach the New Testament in a scholarly and effective manner.

Can I Know God's Will?

As human beings, we long to know that our lives will unfold in ways that we will find pleasant and rewarding. As Christians, we have a different focus—we want our lives to be pleasing to God. Thus, we ponder His will and worry that we are not doing what He wants us to do.

In this Crucial Questions booklet, Dr. R. C. Sproul outlines timeless principles for discovering and applying the will of God in day-to-day decisions. He then illustrates how these principles should inform two of the most significant decisions we face in life—the choice of a career and the choice of a spouse. Here is valuable guidance for those who are passionate to follow God.

The Collected Writings of James Henley Thornwell, vol. 1

This resource contains sixteen lectures on subjects relating to God and moral government. Among other essays included are an inaugural discourse, questions on lectures from classes he taught, an analysis of Calvin's institutes, and questions from examinations given by Thornwell when he was a professor.

The Collected Writings of James Henley Thornwell, vol. 2

Labeled "Theological and Ethical," this set of fourteen essays discusses a number of doctrinal topics of great significance to the Church. Thornwell contrasts two perspectives on lapsarianism: sublapsarianism and supralapsarianism. Other doctrines touched upon include the priesthood of Christ, election, wisdom for Christian daily living, and the sacrifice of Christ.

The Collected Writings of James Henley Thornwell, vol. 3

Thornwell's third volume of collected writings, classified "Theological and Controversial," is broken into two parts: "Rationalist Controversy" and "Papal Controversy." These sections address the interactions between philosophy, psychology, and theology, as well as the doctrines of the Catholic church and the Pope. Thornwell's theological observations on these controversies are compelling and astute.

The Collected Writings of James Henley Thornwell, vol. 4

The fourth volume of Thornwell's collected writings, labeled "Ecclesiastical," wraps up the set with thoughts on church government, structure, and discipline. Also contained in this resource is historically important documentation regarding Thornwell's pro-slavery viewpoint, as well as detailed reasoning as to the separation of the Southern Presbyterian Church from the Presbyterian Church.

The Arguments of Romanists from the Infallibility of the Church and the Testimony of the Fathers in Behalf of the Apocrypha

Thornwell, in 1841, published an anonymous short essay refuting the claim that the Apocrypha was of Divine inspiration. In 1842, the essay was republished under Thornwell's name, which prompted Dr. Lynch, a Roman Catholic priest in South Carolina to then write Thornwell a series of letters, expressing his displeasure and disproof of Thornwell's claims that the Apocrypha is not in fact Divinely inspired. The Arguments of Romanists from the Infallibility of the Church and the Testimony of the Fathers in Behalf of the Apocrypha is a compilation of nineteen letters of response to Dr. Lynch's correspondences. Full of theology and historical intrigue, these letters are an excellent resource on the topic.

Our Danger and Our Duty

Our Danger and Our Duty is a brief yet compelling address, urging all to be ready to fight and defend the South during the Civil War. A historically significant essay, Thornwell's writings paint the bleak picture that the Confederates were faced with upon the thought of defeat. His words, meant to inspire and challenge, give a glimpse into the Civil War through the eyes of a Confederate Southern Presbyterian minister.

The Rights and Duties of Masters

As was Our Danger and Our Duty, The Rights and Duties of Masters is rich with historical importance. A sermon preached on May 26, 1850, Thornwell spoke these words as an inaugural sermon at a church built and dedicated to educate slaves in the area of Christianity and religion. The sermon addresses the text of Colossians 4:1, "Masters, give unto your servants that which is just and equal; knowing that ye also have a master in heaven."

Discourses on Truth

This resource consists of seven sermons preached on the campus of the South Carolina College at the time Thornwell was the chaplain. The sermons were so well-received and useful to their original audience that Thornwell was urged to print them in order that their benefits would become widespread. Topics covered in the sermons include faithfulness, consistency, sincerity, and the love of the truth.

The Life and Letters of James Henley Thornwell

James Henley Thornwell led a fascinating life during a time of great national upheaval in the United States of America. This resource outlines his life, beginning from birth and early childhood and continuing on to his experiences as a minister and professor up until the time of the Civil War. His work assisting with the beginnings of the Southern Presbyterian Church is an important part of both his life and the history of the Church in the 1800s, and is documented in this biographical work. Also included are letters he wrote during his time spent abroad in Europe as well as some general correspondences.

History of God's Work Through His People for the Thornwell Orphanage

This book details the history of the building and founding of the Thornwell Orphanage. First opening its doors in 1875, the orphanage was founded by William Plumer Jacobs, a Presbyterian minister and theologian in Clinton, SC. The facility was named for Thornwell for his theological inspiration and was founded in the wake of the Civil War. History of God's Work Through His People for the Thornwell Orphanage is an inspirational story of God's work through an orphanage that is still around today.

Look after Your Voice: Taking Care of the Preacher's Greatest Asset

As a hammer is to a carpenter, a scalpel to a surgeon, a trowel to a brick mason or a needle to a tailor—so the voice is to a preacher. Man’s voice is the primary means God uses to deliver His Word to mankind, yet how often we who are called to impart the most important truths in the world are apt to neglect, if not willfully abuse our all-vital ‘tool of the trade’.

Can there be any more pitiful sight in all nature than a God-sent preacher who is forced to be silent? We are not thinking here however of a silence brought about by pressure from ungodly sources, but that which has been enforced because of the preacher’s own negligence concerning his voice.

Mike Mellor’s goal is not to produce another speech book (of which a good number can be found, usually aimed at actors or singers) but that something of our high calling as God’s spokesmen may be re-kindled and as a consequence our desire to care for the frail vehicle God has designed to convey his Word may be increased.

13 Lessons in Christian Doctrine

This volume is a foundational resource for understanding and living, designed for new and growing Christians. A great tool for personal study or in small groups, Sizemore's work covers thirteen different topics: the most basic truths of God, Jesus Christ, the Bible, the Church, The transition from lost to saved, faith, repentance, baptism, expressions of worship, the Lord’s Supper, prayer, giving, giving in the New Testament, the believer’s future, the mission of the Church, and the coming of the Lord. Reflective questions conclude each lesson.

Life Beyond the Sun: An Introduction to Worldview and Philosophy Through the Lens of Ecclesiastes

Solomon, in the book of Ecclesiastes, offers one of the most insightful earth-centered perspectives on the world and life in it. He examines succinctly the futility, the emptiness, and the hopelessness of life under the sun, life apart from God. At the same time, he suggests the wonder and value of even the simplest act when performed in the context of God’s glory. In Life Beyond the Sun, Dr. Cone introduces an overview of Solomon’s worldview and discusses how it seems to anticipate the worldviews of philosophers who came after him. As he discusses the various aspects of Solomon’s Biblical worldview, Dr. Cone supplies a generous amount of parallels from philosophers through the ages for comparison. He notes how Solomon’s criticisms of the endeavors of godless men seem to apply so well to some of the world’s greatest minds.

Practical Aspects of Pastoral Theology

Seventeen contributors offer valuable insights on many aspects of pastoral ministry. Subjects range from defining what a pastor is and describing his function within the church through the practice of church discipline, the role of a pastor’s wife, the mission of a church up to the measure of success in pastoral ministry, all with the consideration of God’s purpose and glory. Nothing of importance is left out.

Doing God’s Business God’s Way: A Biblical Theology of Ministry

This book calls all genuine disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ, both vocational ministers and lay people, to serve our Savior by carrying out His marching orders His way. This demands that the doctrines of man, sin, salvation, the Word, and the Spirit have full sway in all that we do in the name of Christ. Whatever we are engaged in, whether witnessing to the lost or carrying out our various other responsibilities (e.g., preaching, teaching, counseling, and encouraging), we must be divinely directed by the practical implications of God's grace. Then we, as faithful channels, may joyously come to understand that it is God who causes any and all growth (1 Corinthians 3:6).

Dispensationalism Tomorrow and Beyond: A Theological Collection In Honor of Charles C. Ryrie

Dispensationalism Tomorrow and Beyond was written in honor of Dr. Charles Ryrie by scholars who hold to the same basic view of Dispensationalism for which he is noted. This book address subjects related directly or indirectly to that system of theology. It exhibits a confirmed commitment to the authority, power, sufficiency, original languages, and correct interpretation of the Scriptures and reflects careful exegesis of pertinent biblical passages and significant interaction with writings of scholars who disagree with the Dispensational view of the Bible. Readers will be introduced to subjects not normally addressed by Dispensational authors.

Prolegomena: Introductory Notes on Bible Study and Theological Method

With insight and passion, Dr. Cone lays the foundation for the theological method he advocates by placing it squarely in the center of biblical theology, establishing that context effectively, and wrapping it all up in the literal-grammatical-historical method of hermeneutics. As he develops this context, Dr. Cone shows that biblical theology bears a vital relationship to philosophy, science, epistemology, and worldview. Dr. Cone develops his thesis around four pillars, which form the main body of his work:

  • The existence of the biblical God
  • God’s authoritative self-revelation to man
  • Natural-man’s incapacity to comprehend God’s revelation
  • A consistent hermeneutic

Although all four pillars are important, the fourth pillar provides the real meat of the work by advocating a consistently literal hermeneutic as a means for understanding and developing the truths in the other three pillars and as the only hermeneutic that can correctly interpret Scripture and exegete truth from the biblical text. In addition, the book contains an extensive bibliography for further study.

A Biblical Theology of the Doctrines of Sovereign Grace: Exegetical Considerations of Key Anthropological, Hamartiological, and Soteriological Terms and Motifs

In A Biblical Theology of the Doctrines of Sovereign Grace, author and linguist George J. Zemek presents readers a thorough and biblical view of the doctrines of man, sin, and salvation—as well as other important terms and tenets of faith—in light of biblical anthropology, hamartiology, and soteriology. Zemek analyzes various topics in their original Hebrew and Greek, giving readers a comprehensive and exegetical understanding of these doctrinally important concepts. This volume includes eleven appendixes.

The Greatness of the Rapture: The Pre-Day of the Lord’s Rapture

What is the rapture? What does it involve? When does it take place? How does it relate to other events in the last days? With insight and clarity, Dr. Olander answers these and other questions, while at the same time developing a new approach to an old subject.

In this book, Dr. Olander makes a tremendous contribution to end-times studies by introducing a more theologically sound terminology. In place of the concept of a “pre-tribulation rapture,” Dr. Olander introduces and develops the idea of a “pre-day-of-the-Lord rapture” of the church. As he further develops this idea, Dr. Olander offers a better and more thorough understanding of the rapture itself, as well as a clearer understanding of the Day of the Lord.

A Royal Destiny: The Reign of Man in God's Kingdom

Thurman Wisdom provides a thoroughly integrated biblical theology in A Royal Destiny. Weaving Christ, redemption, and the kingdom of God into a unifying theme, Wisdom follows the biblical drama from Genesis to Revelation. He traces the theme through the Old and New Testaments and illustrates from Abraham’s life how God prepares His servants for kingdom rule. He closes with God’s final destruction of human rebellion at Armageddon. Along the way, he discusses hermeneutics, progressive revelation, and end-time prophetic events. With a rich writing style, Wisdom helps pastors, teachers, and Bible students understand and proclaim the message of "the whole counsel of God."

The Consistency of the Divine Conduct in Revealing of the Doctrines of Redemption

The Hulsean Lectures, a series established at Cambridge University in 1777, were originally meant to be given by clergymen at Cambridge on topics such as the evidence of revealed religion, prophecies and miracles, and difficult or obscure biblical texts. Henry Alford himself lectured, and this volume is the culmination of his Hulsean Lectures at Cambridge in 1841, containing eight lectures and two sermons. Building on each other, the lectures combined make up an astute theological resource, rich with insight regarding the divinity of God, the fall of man, Christ’s atonement, the cross of Christ, and the Resurrection.

Theological Propædeutic, vol. 1

In his 2-volume Theological Propædeutic, Schaff outlines for his students the various sub-disciplines of theology and the methods of theology study. This Propædeutic is derived from Schaff's classroom lectures, and refined by repeated deliveries and substantial student commentary. Schaff's clear style makes these volumes accessible and readable for both Schaff's students and for a wider audience.

Volume 1 of the Theological Propædeutic outlines the nature of religion and defines the task of theology and its relationship to the Bible. He devotes special attention to the rise of the historical-critical method and the prominence of textual criticism in the nineteenth century.

Divine Service: A Women’s Bible Study

Service. To some, the very word is wearying. But true service for Christ, with the right attitude, can be wonderfully refreshing and rewarding. Christ offered us the perfect example of inspired service. Though he was God incarnate, he humbled himself to serve countless individuals and families within the borders of Israel and beyond. In this Bible study, you'll explore Mark's unique perspective on the service of Jesus Christ.

A Life Surrendered: A Women’s Bible Study

When you're tempted to rebel, to complain, to question—surrender. Remember your Savior and His life of perfect submission. Understand that He is in you. Yielding to Him, you can experience the blessing of a surrendered life.

In A Life Surrendered, June Kimmel takes an in-depth look at the pathway of submission. Christ’s perfect submission to the Father’s plan led Him to the cross and accomplished our redemption. Only in daily taking up His cross can we find purpose and victory in Christian living. Drawing from Philippians 2:5–11, Kimmel encourages Christian women to abandon their rebellious, complaining, questioning spirits and discover the joyful freedom of following in Christ’s footsteps of surrender.

Hope Amidst Ruin: A Literary and Theological Analysis of Ezra

The book of Ezra deals with building the second temple, restoring the worship of Yahweh, and breaking the habits that undermined Israel's spiritual integrity. In Hope Amidst Ruin, A. Philip Brown II analyzes the book's use of chronology, plot, and point of view, demonstrating that Ezra composed the historical narrative to teach postexilic Israel about the goodness and holiness of their God. The themes of hope and holiness flow throughout the book as the returnees learn anew of God's promises to the just and of His wrath against those who abandon Him. Purification and separation from evil is necessary for the Israelites to be restored to true fellowship with Yahweh.

Brown frankly addresses various interpretation challenges in Ezra, such as its unique temporal ordering and disquieting finale. Concurrently, he offers evidence for the divine inspiration of the book. He also clarifies the relationship of historical events in the Persian Empire to Ezra's narrative. Brown's research and analysis make Hope Amidst Ruin an essential resource for Old Testament theologians and all students of Scripture. Ezra's focus on hope and holiness is just as appropriate for our world as it was for his.
