DESCRIPTION : "For me, Mother Teresa of calcutta embodies Christian love in action. Her face shines with the love of Christ on which her whole like is centered, and her words carry that message to a world which never needed it so much." Something Beautiful for God is about Mother Teresa and the religious order she instituted. It is not a biography in the ordinary sense, but includes - along with other writings about and by her - the transcripts of Muggeridge's conversations with Mother Teresa in Calcutta. This beautiful hardcover edition contains many colour and black-and-white photographs of Mother Teresa, as well as the complete text of Malcom Muggeridge's famous book - the book that brought Mother Teresa and her work to the attention of the world's media.

DESCRIPTION : What is true beauty? What kind of beauty pleases God most? Is there a beauty that can "save the world" (Dostoevsky)? Is holiness beauty? Captivated by the beauty of the transfigured Savior, the Church seeks to express God's beauty through liturgy, icons, vestments etc., as it calls on us also to respond by doing something beautiful for God. In the words of one theologian, "Where there is beauty apparent, let us enjoy it. Where there is beauty hidden, let us unveil it. Where there is beauty defaced, let us restore it. Where there is no beauty at all, let us create it.

DESCRIPTION : Classic Catholic Converts presents the compelling stories of over 25 well-known converts to Catholicism from the 19th and 20th centuries. It tells of powerful testimonials to God's grace, men and women from all walks of life in Europe and America whose search for the fullness of truth led them to the Catholic Church. It is the witness of brilliant intellectuals, social workers, scientists, authors, film producers, clergy, businessmen, artists and others who, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, studied and prayed their way into the Church. Fr. Charles Connor writes insightful and wonderfully readable stories of a rich variety of converts who struggled greatly with many challenges as they embraced Catholicism, including rejection by loved ones, persecution from strangers, and misunderstanding by peers. But, once they responded to God's call, they experienced great inner peace, contentment and joy. Among the famous converts whose stories are told here include John Henry Newman, Edith Stein, Jacques Maritain, Dorothy Day, G.K. Chesterton, Elizabeth Seton, Karl Stern, Ronald Knox and many more.

DESCRIPTION : This book examines how the spiritual longings of ordinary people have shaped the most progressive political and cultural movements of the twentieth century and given birth to a new postmodern perspective on existence that recoups the traditional religious verities on the far side of both literary modernism and neo-Marxism. Inchausti focuses on figures who have been instrumental in defending the sacred traditions of indigenous cultures and oppressed minorities. He demonstrates that Mahatma Gandhi, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Elie Wiesel, Martin Luther King Jr., Mother Teresa, and Lech Walesa share an ethic that is, at once, plebeian in origin and yet sublime in aspiration.

DESCRIPTION : Many years ago, I had a vision full of dreams of putting a positive drop in the ocean of life to help create a better world for all of us in generations to come. I saw with a broken mirror, with a world full of tears, full of hurts and frustration with deepening pain, which cried endlessly for a red cross band-aid and cure. It was many years later that my vision was written on paper in the form of poetry. My many trials and suffering, along with many running off the road of light, with dead ends did not go in vain. I hope my many poems of love, Jesus, Mary, peace, and the poor will help to inspire each reader to open their eyes and minds wider to Jesus endless love and dreamers with authentic peace, with their hearts open to realize the suffering and the huge rocky mountain that the poor and unwanted, lost and forgotten, climb that mountain courageously day after day. You may be passing by a war hero in disguise many have despairing stories to tell. Jesus dwells in the suffering poor. He loves his forgotten lamb in the same way that he loves us. Please give them dignity and respect for they struggle for the good life with the little that they have with hopeful courage, and a trail of brokenness and pain, with hanging on to the Lord's strength and his many crosses to turn their darkness into God's light. So be a brother or sister to them and lend them a hand when you can, their destiny starts and ends with you.

DESCRIPTION : "'Transformation' relates my journey out of obesity by the power of the Holy Spirit. At 49, I was 120-150 pounds overweight, and felt helpless and hopeless in overcoming my lifelong struggle with food addiction and obesity. Confronted with declining health and comfort, I asked God for His help, turning the struggle over to Him. ... I received the baptism of the Holy Spirit for the first time. God did a miracle in my life that night in April 2006 and began a powerful transformation, both in my heart and body. By the power of the Holy Spirit, I was filled with joyous anticipation of God's ability in my life, and I began to lose weight. Early into the transformation, God told me to write a journal of my experiences and the lessons He would teach me in the journey of transformation. He directed me to seek publication of the journal of the first 80 pounds lost, and gave me a vision of beginning a spiritual support group at my church for women struggling with these issues."
