<b>Over 200,000 copies sold!<br /><br />“What I propose to do in this book is to take you on a guided exploration of the Catholic world, but not in the manner of a docent, for I am not interested in showing you the artifacts of Catholicism as though they were dusty <i>objets d’art</i> in a museum of culture.  I want to function rather as a mystagogue, conducting you ever deeper into the mystery of the incarnation in the hopes that you might be transformed by its power.”</b> –<b>Father Robert Barron</b><br /><b> </b><br />What is Catholicism? A 2,000-year-old living tradition? A worldview? A way of life? A relationship? A mystery? In <i>Catholicism </i>Father Robert Barron examines all these questions and more, seeking to capture the body, heart and mind of the Catholic faith.<br /><br />Starting from the essential foundation of Jesus Christ’s incarnation, life, and teaching, Father Barron moves through the defining elements of Catholicism--from sacraments, worship, and prayer, to Mary, the Apostles, and Saints, to grace, salvation, heaven, and hell--using his distinct and dynamic grasp of art, literature, architecture, personal stories, Scripture, theology, philosophy, and history to present the Church to the world. <br /><br />Paired with his documentary film series of the same title, <i>Catholicism </i>is an intimate journey, capturing “The Catholic Thing” in all its depth and beauty. Eclectic, unique, and inspiring, Father Barron brings the faith to life for a new generation, in a style that is both faithful to timeless truths, while simultaneously speaking in the language of contemporary life.

<b><b>From Anne Lamott, the <i>New York Times</i>-bestselling author of <i>Help, Thanks, Wow, </i>comes the book we need from her now: How to bring hope back into our lives. <b>A perfect gift to give this holiday season.</b></b></b><br /><br />"I am stockpiling antibiotics for the Apocalypse, even as I await the blossoming of paperwhites on the windowsill in the kitchen," Anne Lamott admits at the beginning of <i>Almost Everything</i>. Despair and uncertainty surround us: in the news, in our families, and in ourselves. But even when life is at its bleakest--when we are, as she puts it, "doomed, stunned, exhausted, and over-caffeinated"--the seeds of rejuvenation are at hand. "All truth is paradox," Lamott writes, "and this turns out to be a reason for hope. If you arrive at a place in life that is miserable, it will change." That is the time when we must pledge not to give up but "to do what Wendell Berry wrote: 'Be joyful, though you have considered all the facts.'" <br /><br />In this profound and funny book, Lamott calls for each of us to rediscover the nuggets of hope and wisdom that are buried within us that can make life sweeter than we ever imagined. Divided into short chapters that explore life's essential truths, Almost Everything pinpoints these moments of insight as it shines an encouraging light forward. <br /><br />Candid and caring, insightful and sometimes hilarious, <i>Almost Everything </i>is the book we need and that only Anne Lamott can write.

We all know it. We know that what we’re experiencing is radically different from the Church in Scripture. For decades, church leaders like myself have lost sight of the inherent mystery of the Church. We have trained people sitting in the pews to become addicted to lesser things. It’s time for that to change.”<BR />  <BR /> When Jesus returns, will He find us caring for His Bride—even more than for our own lives? <I>Letters to the Church</I> reminds us of how powerful, how glorious the Church once was … and calls us to once again be the Church God intended us to be.</DIV>
