A practical and accessible guide to daily growth in one’s spiritual life
Souls at Work
An Invitation to Freedom
SOULS AT WORK follows upon the author’s Souls at Rest and is an invitation to reflect deeply on the processes of formation, education, intellectual growth, and spiritual maturation. Its many practical suggestions are like having a private spiritual mentor and serve to guide readers in moving from good to “better” in their spiritual lives.
The purpose of Souls at Work is simple: to pose questions only you can answer. These questions will help you participate in the formation of your own soul, and the souls of your children, friends, or students. Consider and answer them for yourself to rekindle the hunger that makes learning a joyful feast. Because it incorporates the classical trivium as a lens to focus on the goals of education and growth in the spiritual life, this is a book for parents, teachers, and indeed for all serious Christians.
A brilliant new articulation of Catholic social teaching
Not As the World Gives
The Way of Creative Justice
Foreword by Adrian Walker
THIS IS THE TIME FOR A NEW POLITICS, a new economics. Not As the World Gives, drawing on the Church’s two millennia of reflection on the Gospel, shows us the nature of society by showing us ourselves. We are beings created to give and receive—called to “walk towards the true freedom that Christ taught us in the Beatitudes,” as Pope Francis expressed it.
There is no peace without justice, but neither can there be justice without love. Far from being an impractical dream, Catholic social doctrine can transform the way we work, the way we govern, and the way we treat the natural world. What emerges from this sequel to the author’s The Radiance of Being is a vision of integration and wholeness, a society both divine and human, and a “humanism open to the absolute.”
An exploration of Catholicism in Middle Earth
Tolkien’s Sacramental Vision
Discerning the Holy in Middle Earth
ONE OF TOLKIEN’S great appeals to readers is that he offers a world replete with meaning at every level. To read and reread Tolkien is to share his sense of wonder and holiness, to be invited into the presence of a “beauty beyond the circles of the world.” It is to fall in love with a universe that has a beginning and an end, where good and bad are not subjective choices, but objective realities; a created order full of grace, though damaged by sin, in which friendship is the seedbed of the virtues, and where the greatest warriors finally become the greatest healers.
