"Fr. Sertillanges's teachings are as timeless as any truths which describe the genuine nature of things. . . . This book is highly recommended not only for intellectuals, but also for students and those discerning their vocation in life."--New Oxford Review "[This] is above all a practical book. It discusses with a wealth of illustration and insight such subjects as the organization of the intellectual worker's time, materials, and his life; the integration of knowledge and the relation of one's specialty to general knowledge; the choice and use of reading; the discipline of memory; the taking of notes, their classification and use; and the preparation and organization of the final production."--The Sign

Mary appears only a few times in the Bible, but those few passages come at crucial moments. Catholics believe that Mary is the ever-virgin Mother of God, the Queen of Heaven and Earth. But she also was a human being--a woman who made a journey of faith through various trials and uncertainties and endured her share of suffering. Even with her unique graces and vocation, Mary remains a woman we can relate to and from whom we have much to learn. In Walking with Mary, Edward Sri looks at the crucial passages in the Bible concerning Mary and offers insight about the Blessed Mother's faith and devotion that we can apply in our daily lives. We follow her step-by-step through the New Testament account of her life, reflecting on what the Scriptures tell us about how she responded to the dramatic events unfolding around her. “This book is the fruit of my personal journey of studying Mary through the Scriptures, from her initial calling in Nazareth to her painful experience at the cross,” writes Edward Sri “It is intended to be a highly readable, accessible work that draws on wisdom from the Catholic tradition, recent popes, and biblical scholars of a variety of perspectives and traditions. With the riches of these insights, we will ponder what her journey of faith may have been like in order to draw out spiritual lessons for our own walk with God.” He add, “It is my hope, therefore, that whether you are of a Catholic, Protestant, or other faith background, this book may help you to know, understand, and love Mary more, and that it may inspire you to walk in her footsteps as a faithful disciple of the Lord in your own pilgrimage of faith.”

Here for the ordinary reader is an unforgettable moment-by-moment account that brings to vivid life the powerful events that transpired between Jesus’ Agony in the Garden of Gethsemane and His death on the Cross at Golgotha. Told accurately and in a manner in¬teresting and intelligible, it actually provides a fuller treatment of the Passion than is found in the Gospels. You see, those Gospels were written for first century readers already familiar with many of the persons, places, parties, and politics that colored events in those long-past days. Not so modern readers, twenty centuries later! Which is why Fr. Ralph Gorman has here crafted for us a single detailed narrative out of the four Gospels, weaving into his narrative relevant Old Testament passages and prophecies, and facts from Jewish and Roman history, laws, beliefs, traditions, and practices, plus helpful first century military, political, geographical, and archaeological information. Faithful to the Gospels while drawing on the best commentaries on them in English, Latin, French, German, and Italian, these rich pages provide you a refreshing reading of the Gospels supplemented by reliable archaeological, historical, and theological information about the period, places, and persons in¬volved. Plus, you have the benefit of Fr. Gorman’s keen depictions of the Gospel places based on his three years’ residence there. You can read this book straight through, or one chapter a day as spiritual reading before Mass or during Lent. Either way, you’ll come to understand better the malice of the crowds, the dismay and confusion of Christ’s friends, and the speed with which the deadly events unfolded. Most of all, you’ll come to grasp anew the depths of Christ’s love for you, awakening in you greater devotion to Him than ever before. How about it? Wouldn’t it be good for you, by reading and meditating on the contents of this book, to spend with Jesus His last hours? From these moving pages, you’ll come to learn scores of new – and sometimes surprising – things, including: The exact moment that Satan entered Judas: can you name it?The most terrible words Jesus spoke during his life on earth: do you know them? (Pray they will never be said about you.)The real meaning of the agony in the garden (Hint: it was more than suffering)How Jesus failed to fulfill popular hopes about the MessiahThe dangerous political currents in Palestine that fueled the fatal events of holy week: Fr. Ralph Gorman explains them allThat naked man who fled before Jesus and the soldiers after Jesus’s arrest. Was it really St. Mark, as some say?Annas, Caiaphas, Herod the Great, Herod Antipas, Pilate, the High Priests, the Sanhedrin, the Sadducees, the Scribes, and the Pharisees: learn which of these many overlapping (and often conflicting) authorities and groups ruled what . . . did what . . . and whyWhy the groups that hated Jesus did not just kill him secretlyThe many — and often shifting — charges made against JesusWhy Jesus refused to answer many of His accusersThe moment that, under oath, Jesus declared himself to be God: do you know when that was?Pontius Pilate before and after Christ’s passion: where he came from and what happened to him afterwards“He burst asunder and all his bowels gushed out”: St. Luke’s little-known description of the death of JudasThe incestuous marriage that led to the death of John the BaptistPontius Pilate: why he admired — but condemned — JesusWhat Barabbas really did, and why that led the crowd to demand Pilate release him instead of JesusWhy, so quickly, Palm Sunday’s “Hosannas” led to Good Friday’s “Crucify him!"Who Christ blamed for his plight, and to what extentThe likely location of the crucifixion, and that spot in particular was chosenThe statue of Venus erected over Golgotha and of Jupiter over the Holy Sepulcher: who did it and how it helped later generations of ChristiansHow Roman methods deliberately increased the shame and pain of crucifixionHow Christ great sufferings on the cross confirmed — rather than falsified — the truth of his divinityWhy, after His death, the Sanhedrin still feared JesusAnd much more to enrich your knowledge, understanding, and love of Jesus!

Vintage Feminism: classic feminist texts in short form WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY NATALIE HAYNES When this book was first published in 1949 it was to outrage and scandal. Never before had the case for female liberty been so forcefully and successfully argued. De Beauvoir’s belief that ‘One is not born, but rather becomes, a woman’ switched on light bulbs in the heads of a generation of women and began a fight for greater equality and economic independence. These pages contain the key passages of the book that changed perceptions of women forever. TRANSLATED BY CONSTANCE BORDE AND SHEILA MALOVANY-CHEVALLIER ANNOTATED AND INTRODUCED BY MARTINE REID
