Zealous: Following Jesus with Guidance from St. Paul

  • Description: "Authors Mark Hart and Christopher Cuddy provide a contemporary look at the basics of spiritual life—the existence of God, the purpose of man, the coming of the Savior, our response to God, and our eventual goal of eternal life—and they do so through the lens of St. Paul’s epistles. With a clear, simple invitation, readers are encouraged to delve more deeply into Scripture to find answers to these timeless issues and internalize what God’s truth means for them personally. Quotes from the Catechism of the Catholic Church help bring both the writings of St. Paul and the Gospels to life. Questions to provoke thought and action are designed to motivate the reader to follow Jesus with same kind of zeal Paul had. Whether you’re new to the Bible or a seasoned student of its truth, you’re sure to gain practical wisdom from this book."

Transforming Parish Communications: Growing the Church Through New Media

  • Description: From the Foreword written by Cardinal Seán O'Malley, Archbishop of Boston: "In this book, Scot Landry explains why it is critical for parishes, as hubs of the New Evangelization, to embrace new media. He indicates what the essential new media tools are for parishes today, shares practical strategies for how to implement them, and describes how these tools can transform parish communications. I am confident that Scot s practical wisdom, passion for evangelization, and enthusiasm for new media will help parish leaders overcome any hesitancy about embracing these new methods. We would like all parishes to have a program for engaging those on the digital continent and leading them to be transformed by the grace of the Sacraments and the love of the Christian community within the Church."
