Family Matters: Catholic Theology of the Family By Dave Armstrong
eBook (ePub): $2.99
The present work mainly uses reason and Holy Scripture in order to explicate Catholic moral theology, in the areas of sexuality, gender, and the family. Far from being a merely... More > "moralistic" or "puritanical" or "Victorian" sort of outlook (often perceived by many as a set of unnecessary, stifling, negative rules), Catholic moral theology is based on what God has revealed to us in His inspired Word, the Bible, and is a positive teaching about who man is, and what fulfills him, in accordance with God's purpose for His children, made in His image. It is my hope and prayer that this book will help Catholics to better understand the rationale behind their own Church's sometimes difficult-to-live-out beliefs concerning personal and institutional morality, and aid non-Catholics in finding common ground with Catholic moral teaching, and to better appreciate it, even where they find themselves in disagreement.< Less

Dionysius the Areopagite: On the Divine Names and the Mystical Theology. By C.E. Rolt
eBook (ePub): $2.99
On the Divine Names and Mystical Theology are two of the greatest works of Dionysius the Areopagite. Also known as Pseudo-Dionysius, he was long thought to be the first century disciple of Paul.... More > Later evidence, however, showed this important and influential theologian to be an anonymous fifth century Christian, neo-platonic thinker. Both On the Divine Names and Mystical Theology emphasize the transcendence of God, and the inability of human language to fully capture God's true nature. Dionysius's theological method--often called "negative theology" because it never made positive affirmations about God--was adopted by many Christians. This particular edition of Dionysius's work also comes with an elaborate and instructive introduction, sure to be of help when understanding Dionysius's writings. Although Dionysius's work was long unavailable in modern translation, now anyone can read and enjoy this impressive and important theologian! -Tim Perrine, CCEL Staff Writer< Less
Neoplatonist Stew: How Pagan Philosophy Corrupted Christian Theology By Paul Hughes
eBook (ePub): $8.99
This book leaves few denominational toes untrodden. An objective review of Church history demonstrates that Christian theology soon went astray from that laid out in the New Testament, as the Fathers... More > of the Church lost their understanding of sound interpretive principles. Theology began to be supplemented, then co-opted and corrupted, by Greek philosophy: namely, Middle Platonism, then Neoplatonism, and later Theurgy. The external, heterodox doctrines derived from Pagan philosophy were embraced by the Eastern Church, carried into the Western Church, repeatedly revived in the Medieval Church in the form of Scholasticism, Mysticism, and Catholic Church dogma, and re-popularized by modern theologians to the present day. The negative influence of these heterodoxies is manifest in modern elements of Mysticism, Contemplative Prayer, Sacramentalism, Sacerdotalism, the so-called New Theology, and emphasis on Universalism, Liberation, Unity, Mystical Union, apotheosis, divinization, and "spiritual formation."< Less

The Second Man: The Lord from Heaven By Paul Thomas
Paperback: $10.96

The central thesis of this book is: did God robe Himself in earthly human flesh or did He come in His own heavenly flesh? The belief that Christ’s flesh is heavenly will be shown to be a... More > bedrock teaching in the Bible. Conversely, to believe that Jesus assumed human flesh - having its origin in the lowly dust - leaves one with a distorted view of the identity of the One True God in Christ and, sadly, a diminished view of His resplendent glory. It will be argued that a wrong understanding of the Word made flesh (John 1:14) doctrine (Christology) impacts negatively on a series of other foundational doctrines in the Bible among which are baptism in Jesus name and the Lord’s Supper.< Less
