  • Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church
    Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church (English, Paperback) Pontifical Council of Justice and Peace

This book shows the value of Catholic social teaching as an instrument of evangelisation because it places the human person and society in relationship with the light of the Gospel.

    We may think of the twenty-seven books of the New Testament as the only sacred writings of the early Christians, but this is not the case. Lost Scriptures offers an anthology of up-to-date and readable translations of many of non-canonical writings from the centuries after Christ-texts that have for the most part been neglected or lost for nearly two millennia.

  • Lost Christianities
    Lost Christianities (English, Paperback) Bart D. Ehrman

    The early Christian Church was a chaos of contending beliefs. Some groups Christians claimed that there was not one God but two, or twelve, or thirty. Certain sects maintained that Jesus was human but not divine; others that he was divine but not human. Eherman offers an enlightening study of these early forms of Christinaity, and how they came to be suppressed, reformed, or forgotten.

  • Goddesses
    Goddesses (English, Hardback) Joseph Campbell

    Joseph Campbell brought mythology to mass audiences, most notably in his conversations with Bill Moyers on PBS. In print and on television, his accessible and conversational tone riveted without ?dumbing down.? His best-selling books, including The Power of Myth and Hero with a Thousand Faces are the rare blockbusters (well over a million copies sold) that are also scholarly classics. While Campbell ?covered the mythological waterfront,? he never focused a work on the Goddess. This, however, does not mean he didn't have fresh and exciting things to say. In this provocative volume, he traces the evolution of the Feminine Divine from one Great Goddess to many, from Neolithic Old Europe to the Renaissance. He sheds new light on classical motifs and recognizes what is resonant in our day: that ?the challenge is to flower as individuals, neither as biological archetypes, nor as personalities imitative of the male.?
