  • "Does what it says on the tin!"

    Overall

    If anyone ever wants to know exactly what Catholics believe and why then the easiest thing to do is read this book. It is as simple as that. Fr Robert Barron is a Catholic phenomenon who has been recognised by his superiors in the Church as having a gift for communicating complex Catholic theology and factual history in an honest and accessible way. The driving force for that honesty and accessibility is his love for God and his enthusiasm in his faith. He literally sings his faith to the world through his writing and broadcasting. For Catholics this is a "must have" book. It has been adopted by RCIA groups in Catholic dioceses the world over. For those who are curious about Catholicism and want to know why Catholic believe what they do, then you can do no better than read this luminous work. The audible version is all the more awesome because Fr Robert narrates it himself and his love and enthusiam burst out of every chapter.

    Fr. Robert Barron's comprehensive work goes straight to the core of the Catholic faith. He first examines the foundations of Christ's incarnation, life and ministry, and then works through the essentials of the Catholic tradition: from sacraments, worship and prayer, to Mary and the saints, and on to salvation, heaven and hell. Throughout this epic journey, Fr. Barron uses art, literature, personal stories, Scripture, theology, philosophy and history to present a complete picture of the Church to the world.

  • "More than just a writer of children..."

    Overall

    Most of the secular world knows CS Lewis as the man who wrote the Narnia chronicles. Unfortunately many of them probably don't know that he was one of the most accomplished Christian apologists of the 20th century. His supreme talent lay in being able to tailor the complexity of his arguments to his audience and this is superbly illustrated in this collection of his lectures, letters and articles. There is something for everyone here and is fascinating reading/listening for both those who want to defend their faith to those who seek understand why Christians believe what they do. Don't let the title put you off! It is much more user-friendly that the words "theology and ethics" suggests. It is also a fascinating look into the mind of one of literature's towering intellects.

    C. S. Lewis was a profound thinker with the rare ability to communicate the philosophical and theological rationale of Christianity in simple yet amazingly effective ways. God in the Dock contains 48 essays and 12 letters written by Lewis between 1940 and 1963 for a wide variety of publications.

  • "Sound Christian Theology for the 21..."

    Overall

    Fr Robert Barron is a gift to the Christian world. His theology is sound and historically accurate, but he brings complex Christology right up to date for the modern age by using metaphor and language which readers/listeners can relate to. Of course, this is written from a Roman Catholic perspective because that is what Fr Robert is, a Catholic priest, but there is much in this little book which any Christian could find valuable and which enquiring non-believers might be interested in. It's not a long book and that is to it's advantage because in increases it's already impressive accessibility.

    A master theologian offers inspiring insights into the mystery of Christ's presence in our lives. As festive as the film Babette's Feast and as profound as the work of Ronald Knox, this fresh look at the Eucharist brings to light the spiritual meaning of meal, sacrifice, and real presence in our lives.

    With robust clarity, Hitchens frames the argument for a more secular life based on science and reason, in which Hell is replaced by the Hubble Telescope's awesome view of the universe, and Moses and the burning bush give way to the beauty and symmetry of the double helix. God Is Not Great marvels at the possibility of society without religion.

    2012 marks the 60th anniversary of the publication of C. S. Lewis's classic, Mere Christianity. Having sold over half a million copies in the UK alone, his overview of Christianity has been imitated many times, but never outdone. Mere Christianity brings together Lewis's legendary broadcasts from the war years; talks in which he set out simply to '"explain and defend the belief that has been common to nearly all Christians at all times."

He now focuses his fierce intellect exclusively on this subject, denouncing its faulty logic and the suffering it causes.

    "Forty-four percent of the American population is convinced that Jesus will return to judge the living and the dead sometime in the next 50 years," writes Sam Harris. "Imagine the consequences if any significant component of the U.S. government actually believed that the world was about to end and that its ending would be glorious. The fact that nearly half of the American population apparently believes this...should be considered a moral and intellectual emergency."

    The Buddha said many times that just as the great oceans have but one taste, so do all the true teachings of the dharma: the taste of freedom. Jack Kornfield's The Roots of Buddhist Psychology is an invitation to drink deeply of these teachings; to taste the wisdom that flows from the heart of Buddhism's most useful ideas on the interior life and what brings awakening, freedom, and happiness. Jack Kornfield opens this eternal view of the mind for all listeners in this collection.

    It's one thing to hear a life-changing truth or to have a conceptual grasp on spiritual wisdom. But it's another thing to "walk the walk" - or to put into practice the good advice we've been given. What does it mean to walk the walk in our everyday lives? According to Pema Chödrön, it means being down-to-earth, genuine, and perhaps most importantly, it means engaging in the teachings in order to actively confront anything and everything we've heretofore rejected in our attempts to find happiness.

    God Is Disappointed in You is for people who would like to read the Bible...if it would just cut to the chase. Stripped of its arcane language and interminable passages, every book of the Bible is condensed down to its core message, in no more than a few pages each. Written by Mark Russell with cartoons by New Yorker cartoonist Shannon Wheeler, God Is Disappointed in You is a frequently hilarious, often shocking, but always accurate retelling of the Bible, including the parts selectively left out by Sunday School teachers.

    Walking on water. Multiplying the fish and the loaves. Raising Lazarus from the dead. The miracles of Jesus may be well known, but they are often treated as nothing more than fanciful tales. Written as a companion volume to The Storytelling God: Seeing the Glory of Jesus in His Parables, this book by Jared Wilson argues for the historicity and importance of the miraculous events surrounding Jesus's life and ministry.
