Orthodoxy and Catholicism: A Comparison By Dave Armstrong
Paperback: List Price: $21.95 $17.56 | You Save: 20%
Prints in 3-5 business days
It has been my strong desire for some time now to revise my book in order to emphasize ecumenism and unity proportionately a lot more than in the first (2004) edition. I'm much more interested in... More > finding common ground. I've also learned a thing or two about Orthodoxy over the past decade. I wanted this volume to be able to read by Orthodox and also Eastern Catholics, without having seizures or going into apoplectic fits (caused by my ignorance or overly polemical or biased writing). I exaggerate, of course, but perhaps not by much! Toward that end I have enlisted a very qualified Eastern Catholic friend to contribute significant portions to the revised edition: Fr. Deacon Daniel G. Dozier. The revision remains an apologetic for Catholicism and respectful critique of Orthodoxy, but now it also includes friendly ecumenical discussion and dialogue: feedback and input from the Eastern theological perspective. The overall tone, tenor, and goal is considerably different. Unity is stressed as much as apologetics.< Less

The Rending of Christendom: A Primary Document Catholic Study Guide By Phillip Campbell
Paperback: $15.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
From ancient Greece until the early 20th century, the study of history consisted in reading primary sources: documents written first-hand by persons involved in historical events. This reliance on... More > primary sources was abandoned at the dawn of the 20th century by educational ‘reformers’ who pushed learning by textbook instead - with the result that most students now have no contact with the great documents of the past. In The Rending of Christendom, Phillip Campbell takes us back to the classical primary source method. The persons and events of the Reformation era are brought into vivid relief with twenty-three primary source documents. Featuring biographies, theological treatises, papal bulls and polemics from the towering figures of the 16th and 17th centuries, the Rending of Christendom sourcebook immerses the student in the controversies of the period to learn its history first hand from those who were there. Contains readings and study questions, intended for ages 14-18. Answer key sold separately.< Less

The Fifties Mystique By Jessica Mann
Paperback: $15.96
Prints in 3-5 business days
Many young women ‘long to put the clock back to the post-war years when life seemed prettier and nicer.’ In this book Jessica Mann demolishes such preconceptions about their... More > mothers’ or grandmothers’ young days, showing that in reality life was uglier and nastier. Born just before WW2, she grew up in the post-war era of austerity, restrictions and hypocrisy, before anyone even dreamed of Women’s Lib. The Fifties Mystique is both a personal memoir and a polemic. In explaining the lives of pre-feminists to the post-feminists of today, Mann discusses the period’s very different attitudes to sex, childbirth, motherhood and work, describes how she and other young women lived in that distant world with its forgotten restrictions and warns against taking hard-won rights for granted. Jessica Mann is the author of 21 crime novels and 4 non-fiction books. As a journalist she has written for national newspapers, weeklies and glossy magazines and is the crime fiction critic of The Literary Review.< Less
Whispering Children By Peter Minshall
Paperback: $12.26
Prints in 3-5 business days
“If you do nothing else this weekend read Peter Minshall’s first book WHISPERING CHILDREN which could be described as a ‘polemic novel’. It’s a cracking good adventure... More > story for children aged ten years and upwards. It’s only sixty pages long, but powerful stuff. For adults it’s also good reading and has a message that sticks in one’s memory long after it has been put back on the shelf. But make sure it is at hand as events will happen in some part of the world that will strike a chord of something that Peter Minshall has alluded to in his short treatise that can be summed up in the phrase ‘blessed are the peace makers’. He does not advocate pacifism but rather world harmony led by its children. Indeed, the hero of this seminal novel is a young, wounded Scottish soldier. Equally he could be described as an urgently needed universal power for good.” The book is a belief in the future, written for all ages and all nations; never has a book been more relevant.< Less
