Dorothee Soelle (1929-2003) was one of the most creative and prophetic German theologians of the post-war generation. Her work was profoundly shaped by the memory of war, of the Holocaust, and of totalitarianism. This "political" theology joined a strong mystical dimension with a deep concern for the challenges of history, integrating feminism, ecological awareness, a witness for peace, and global solidarity.

Joan Chittister, a Benedictine nun, is one of the most popular and prophetic religious voices in the world today. In her many books and countless speeches, she has addressed the burning social issues of our time—justice, peace, the role of women, and the survival of the planet. She has explored the deepest questions of human existence, including love, suffering and death, the quest for happiness, and the meaning of life. She has probed the word of God, the message of the gospel, the call to contemplation, and the challenge of faithful living. To all of these she has brought her characteristic courage, honesty, and above all, passion. This volume, more than any other, captures and distills her spirit and her message for women and men today—including reflections on her own journey, why she remains in the church, and what sustains her faith and hope.

"Through biographical reflections and selected writings, this anthology highlights the essential teachings of a dozen modern spiritual masters, each of whom embodied a form of engaged spirituality - attuned both to God and the needs of a wounded world. Each opposed a style of spirituality focused entirely on the inner life, while at the same lime stressing the importance of prayer and silence as the foundation for service and activism. Balancing contemplation and compassion, these figures - including some of the world's best-known spiritual writers - represent a model of spirituality sensitive to tradition as well as the challenges of our time."--BOOK JACKET.

Paolo Giobatti is the first Major League Baseball star from the Italian League. He’s nursing an ailing back along the shores of the Mediterranean when, thanks to modern technology, both he and his archrival Eli Kohn, half the world away in Cleveland, witness a stunning moment at the hands of Darius Salamah, a Syrian refugee struggling for survival. In the time it takes for a dove to flap its wings, each of their lives is irrevocably entwined forever. Thus begins the journey of three young men: a Catholic, a Muslim, and a Jew, from Italy’s southernmost beaches and America’s baseball diamonds, to the beating heart of Jerusalem. The trio will dance a bitter tango for the sake of advancing their careers until the fearless heart of a woman named Fatima reshapes their individual destinies in a way none had thought possible. Fatima and the Sons of Abraham is an allegorical tale for our time based on a curious interpretation of the mysterious events that took place in Fatima, Portugal between May and October of 1917. One hundred years later, author Val Bonacci has reimagined those events, taking you on a ride from darkness into light at autobahn speed – a story that will have you laughing, crying, and rooting for her characters to the finish line.

There's a life that's better than the life you've imagined?.?.?. You wake up one morning and realize that the life you've dreamed of has eluded you. You sense that something better—something bigger—is waiting out there for you, but you can't quite put your finger on it. You know that fame and fortune aren't the answers to true satisfaction in life . . . but, then, what is? The answer lies in discovering and following your "mighty purpose" for life—a reason for living that is so much bigger than yourself that it transforms you, your relationships, and the world as a result. In Heroic Living, best-selling author and former investment banker Chris Lowney combines his business expertise with proven practices of Ignatian spirituality to help each of us—regardless of calling, career, or current situation—discover a mighty purpose and develop a personal life strategy to achieve it. By merging astute business knowledge and spiritual wisdom, Lowney provides the tools needed to make practical, long-term life changes that move us away from our fractured, compartmentalized lives and toward the satisfaction and wholeness that each of us desires so deeply. Praise for Chris Lowney and Heroic Living "Chris Lowney's most recent book is a substantive blend of 'why' and 'how' to construct a life of purpose and integrity amidst the exigencies and complexities of our fast-paced daily lives." —Stephen A. Privett, SJ, President, University of San Francisco "Lowney's whole-life strategy connects us with our deepest beliefs, and connects these beliefs with what we do every day to 'make the world not only life-giving and sustaining but beautiful and interesting.'?" —Thomas M. Loarie, Chairman and CEO, Mercator MedSystems, Inc. "This book is not about guaranteed steps to success but suggests a thoughtful and convincing path to an integrated life." —Karen M. Ristau, EdD, President, NCEA "Lowney's powerful book refreshingly integrates strategic management, religious tradition, and human stories. The book is full of teachable moments that help one view life from the 'inside out' rather than the 'outside in'—calling all of us to a better version of ourselves." —Michael D. Connelly, President and CEO, Catholic Healthcare Partners "This work is a welcomed contribution for anyone longing for a more authentic and purposeful life." —Steve G. W. Moore, Executive Director, M. J. Murdock Charitable Trust

In this heartfelt memoir about her mother Hilda's final years, Joyce Rupp shares the lessons her mother taught her, especially to “fly while you still have wings.” As a poor farmer's wife and the mother of eight living on rented land in Maryhill, Iowa, Hilda lived a life of hard labor and constant responsibility—from milking cows and raising chickens to keeping the farm's financial ledger. Rupp shows how the difficulties of her mother's early years and family life, including the loss of a twenty-three-year-old son, forged a resilience that guided her through the illnesses and losses she faced in later years. This affectionate profile of their relationship is, at the same time, an honest self-examination, as Rupp shares the ways she sometimes failed to listen to, accept, and understand her mother in her final years. Rupp begins each chapter with a meditative poem that captures the essence of each stage in the journey. Her unfailing candor and profound faith illumine this story of a mother and daughter with a universal spirit of hope, reconciliation, and peace.
