The Franklin Virtue Journal. A simple journal to keep with you at all time. This is the same type of journal Benjamin Franklin used throughout his entire life. When in his late 20s, Benjamin... More > Franklin listed thirteen virtues that he felt were an important guide for living. These virtues can be divided into those related to personal behavior (temperance, order, resolution, frugality, moderation, industry, cleanliness, and tranquility) and those related to social character traits (sincerity, justice, silence, chastity, and humility). Although Franklin tried to follow these guides in his life, he often went astray. These virtues may be worthwhile to consider following in your own life. At the start of his self-improvement plan, Franklin recorded, "I was surprised to find myself so much fuller of faults than I had imagined; but I had the satisfaction of seeing them diminish."< Less

A Life of General Robert E. Lee By John Esten Cooke
Paperback: $24.94
Prints in 3-5 business days
The military genius of General Robert E Lee is conceded by all; but this does not account for the fact that his very enemies love the man. His private character is the origin of this sentiment. The... More > soldier was great, but the man himself was greater. Those who knew him best loved him the most. The crowning grace of this man, who was thus not only great but good, was the humility and trust in God, which lay at the foundation of his character. He had lived, as he died, with this supreme trust in an overruling and merciful Providence. His faith and humble trust sustained him both through, and after the war. The writer of this biography attempts to present an accurate likeness of Lee, and to narrate clearly the incidents of his career, the aim of the author is to measure out full justice to all—not to arouse old enmities, which should be allowed to slumber, but to treat his subject with the judicial moderation of the student of history.< Less

St. Dominic's Successor: The Life of Blessed Jordan of Saxony By Marguerite Aron
Paperback: $22.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
Though master-general of the order, Bl. Jordan’s humility prevented him from attributing himself as a director of any human authority. He was not and did not wish to be anything but a docile... More > instrument of grace. As a director of conscience in his breadth and delicacy, Jordan had the Catholic sense of the omnipotent and infinite freedom of God and of the supernatural freedom of souls in relation to God. Like Dominic, he had the faith which moves mountains, and also he had hope of great assistance, which was never to fail him, especially and above all that of the Roman Church. Marguerite Aaron captures the man and his times in this excellent biography, which not only makes use of the ample historical documentation but also utilizes them to enter intimately into his personality, a rare thing with the famous men of his era. Aron’s biography is a first rate history, readable, well sourced and well-written. This is the only source in English to learn about the man who picked up and carried St. Dominic’s torch!< Less
Rewards and Motivation: Paul’s Passionate Pursuit of God In 1 Corinthians By Ruth M. Fuller
eBook (ePub): $8.99
Historically, theologians and church leaders have had difficulty with the Bible’s use of rewards to motivate godly living. This has troubled them because it seems that God’s response when... More > people meet the conditions for receiving these rewards would encourage self-centered pride. Paul clearly presents rewards as incentives; so investigating his writings will be profitable, because, while promoting rewards, he also insists upon selflessness, humility, and the obedience of faith as proper ways to engage with God’s grace. For Paul the primary reward the gospel offers is fellowship with God, experienced as displays of grace. In “Rewards and Motivation” Ruth Fuller shows that to desire these is to desire what God himself delights to give; thus self-interest both pleases him and is essential to loving others selflessly. These rewards represent how much someone delights in God. They are tokens which testify to the inestimable value of God and represent his glory rather than the recipient’s.< Less
