This Child of Faith: Raising a Spiritual Child in a Secular World — Authors Sophfronia Scott and Tain Gregory tell the story of how the horrific school shooting at Sandyhook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut impacted their family’s faith. "Frankly, this is one of the best books about faith formation I’ve read." —Christian Century
Glory Happening: Finding the Divine in Everyday Places — Author Kaitlin B. Curtice reads her collection of stories and prayers that remind listeners to take a closer look at their everyday circumstances and find God there. “A stunner...every sentence is a feast for the senses.” —Rachel Held Evans
We Need Each Other by Jean Vanier — In April 2008, Jean Vanier led a simple retreat in Nyahururu, Kenya, a place recently shattered by violence between people, and bloodshed. This book comprises the talks that Vanier gave: What Are You Looking For?; The Cry of the Poor; The Feast Is Ready; To Live in Unity; Be Open; Encountering the Other; The Washing of the Feet. "We Need Each Other is a treasure. Though these lectures were first delivered ten years ago, and halfway around the world, they couldn't be timelier. They are timely because they are timeless.” —Englewood Review of Books
Bruised and Wounded by Ronald Rolheiser — Recent events have shown again how suicide touches all of us—often when we least expect it. But how to unpack the grief that follows such a painful, and often stigmatized, death? Fr. Rolheiser offers hope and a new way of understanding death by suicide. “This book offers hope and healing to those who have experienced the loss of a loved one or anyone trying to understand the topic.” —Catholic News Service
Domestic Monastery by Ronald Rolheiser — A monastery is a place set apart to learn that powerlessness brings blessings and that time is not ours, but God’s. Rolheiser shows how our domestic life at home and at work can, like life in a monastery, teach us these things.
