Following up on his acclaimed Redeemer in the Womb, John Saward returns to the mystery of Christ's Incarnation. He draws upon the rich traditions of the Church, as well as the writings of the great Christian mystics, to create a work that is both new and old, revolutionary and orthodox. This profoundly moving meditation will aid any contemplation on the life of Christ.The subject of this book is the objective and divinely revealed truth of the Nativity of Christ, as proclaimed by His infallible and immaculate Bride. It is the splendor of this truth, of Love's noon in Nature's night, which for two millennia has captivated the Fathers and Schoolmen, and activated the genius of poets, painters, and musicians. Illustrated with eight color paintings.

This book, based on lectures given at the University of Navarre, is a systematic study of the person of Mary, the mother of Jesus of Nazareth, true God and true Man and the redeemer of mankind. After introductory chapters that approach the subject from conceptual and historical angles, the book then discusses what revelation says about the woman who, in the fullness of time, bore in her womb the pre-existent Son of God. The book also includes a study of Mary's perfections as the Church believes them, written in a 'genetic' way, examining how appreciation of each perfection developed over the past two thousand years. The last chapter deals with Marian devotion. Mary, Mother of the Redeemer provides students of theology, and others interested in deepening the Christian faith, with insights into the person chosen by God to be the mother of Jesus.

Bestselling author, Scott Hahn illuminates a fresh and enlightening perspective on Mary, Mother of God, and her central importance in the Christian faith. In The Lamb's Supper, Hahn explored the relationship between the Book of Revelation and the Roman Catholic Mass, deftly clarifying the most subtle of theological points with analogies and anecdotes from everyday life. In Hail, Holy Queen, he employs the same accessible, entertaining style to demonstrate Mary's essential role in Christianity's redemptive message. Most Christians know that the life of Jesus is foreshadowed throughout the Old Testament. Through a close examination of the Bible, as well as the work of both Catholic and Protestant scholars and clergy, Hahn brings to light the small but significant details showing that just as Jesus is the "New Adam," so Mary is the "New Eve." He unveils the Marian mystery at the heart of the Book of Revelation and reveals how it is foretold in the very first pages of the Book of Genesis and in the story of King David's monarchy, which speaks of a privileged place for the mother of the king. Building on these scriptural and historical foundations, Hahn presents a new look at the Marian doctrines: Her Immaculate Conception, Perpetual Virginity, Assumption, and Coronation. As he guides modern-day readers through passages filled with mysteries and poetry, Hahn helps them rediscover the ancient art and science of reading the Scriptures and gain a more profound understanding of their truthfulness and relevance to faith and the practice of religion in the contemporary world.

In the pre-Christian world, children were slain on pagan altars, and now, in the post-Christian world of the affluent West, children are again the object of adult hostility. In the U.S.A. the abuse of children has been called a "national emergency", while in almost every country on earth the killing of children still unborn has become an ideology of "choice". In this challenging book, John Saward examines the work of several Roman Catholic writers, including St. Therese of Lisieux, G. K. Chesterton, Charles Peguy, Georges Bernanos and Hans Urs von Balthasar who rose up in defense and celebration of childhood. This is a ground-breaking work in the theology of childhood and the analysis of modernity.

Based on Scripture: SIN is twofold: The state of genetic SIN in Humankind which eternally separates them from Creator God. Willful human acts of transgression against Creator God's orders and standards. The WOMB of SIN: Lucifer's (Satan) invention. Why did God enter the Womb of SIN? SIN emerged through God's highest, FREE WILL archangel, Lucifer. God determined to anatomize SIN and provide SIN's antidote. When did God enter the womb of SIN? God sent His Word-Seed to Earth as His Holy Son to be SIN's antidote. At CALVARY, Sacrificial Redeemer, the Lord Jesus Christ, entered the Womb of SIN at immeasurable cost, to execute His Father's Redemption Plan for Humankind. Two thousand+ years later, inherent SIN prevails in multitudes: Satan's weblike, subtle groundwork of hatred and rejection of Creator and Redeemer Jesus is gaining momentum. Through 'unrighteous deception' he will empower Antichrist, global dictator soon to appear, to perform deceptive 'signs and lying wonders' to hoodwink the world. Acceptance of Antichrist's mark 666 equals eternal separation from God. A loving, concerned God calls: Humankind, take a final look at your REDEEMER and REDEMPTION PLAN. Redeemer Jesus is your only escape from Antichrist's rule. M. Irwena Belgrave is a Canadian senior citizen in Toronto, retired from a vocation of office administration. She has been a disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ since her early teens. She aspires toward the ever-increasing knowledge of Triune God's unique nature by communing with Him through His word and prayer. Irwena deems it the highest honor to be called and used of God and is grateful to be included in His end-time program through this scriptural presentation. All praise to our Supreme, Sovereign Creator God!

“[A] fascinating recasting of the story of Jesus.” —Elliot Wolfson, New York University In July 2008, a front-page story in the New York Times reported on the discovery of an ancient Hebrew tablet, dating from before the birth of Jesus, which predicted a Messiah who would rise from the dead after three days. Commenting on this startling discovery at the time, noted Talmud scholar Daniel Boyarin argued that “some Christians will find it shocking—a challenge to the uniqueness of their theology.” Guiding us through a rich tapestry of new discoveries and ancient scriptures, The Jewish Gospels makes the powerful case that our conventional understandings of Jesus and of the origins of Christianity are wrong. In Boyarin’s scrupulously illustrated account, the coming of the Messiah was fully imagined in the ancient Jewish texts. Jesus, moreover, was embraced by many Jews as this person, and his core teachings were not at all a break from Jewish beliefs and teachings. Jesus and his followers, Boyarin shows, were simply Jewish. What came to be known as Christianity came much later, as religious and political leaders sought to impose a new religious orthodoxy that was not present at the time of Jesus’s life. In the vein of Elaine Pagels’s The Gnostic Gospels, here is a brilliant new work that will break open some of our culture’s most cherished assumptions. “A brilliant and momentous book.” —Karen L. King, Harvard Divinity School “Raises profound questions . . . This provocative book will change the way we think of the Gospels in their Jewish context.” —John J. Collins, Yale Divinity School “It’s certainly noteworthy when one of the world’s leading Jewish scholars publishes a book about Jesus . . . Extremely stimulating.” —Daniel C. Peterson, The Deseret News

"This book is a "tour de force." It is simply magnificent" witty, scholarly, profoundly persuasive, blunt, prophetic, and convicting this slow-to-believe disciple all over the place." " Brennan Manning, Author of "The Ragamuffin Gospel" "I'm not sure what to make of it all, but Paul Smith gives the best arguments I have ever come across for calling God Mother. For anyone struggling with how far we should go in using inclusive language, this is "must" reading. " Tony Campolo, Eastern College "With tender power and wit, Paul Smith challenges the church to biblical fidelity and justice in its worship language. How encouraging it is to hear an evangelical male voice affirm the necessity of feminine images of God! This outstanding book so clearly and convincingly demonstrates the biblical imperative for inclusive God-language that the Christian community can no longer ignore it."

Experience the Lifelong Pleasures of Knowing God! Satisfaction…Happiness…Joy. According to John Piper, the pursuit of pleasure in God is not only permissible, it’s essential. Desiring God is a paradigm-shattering work that dramatically alters common perspectives on relating to God. Piper reveals that there really is no need to choose between duty and delight in the Christian life. In fact, for the follower of Jesus, delight is the duty as Christ is most magnified in His people when they are most satisfied in Him. Constantly drawing on Scripture to build his case, Piper shows why pursuing maximum joy is essential to glorifying God. He discusses the implications of this for conversion, worship, love, Scripture, prayer, money, marriage, missions, and suffering. Piper beckons us to approach God with the hedonist’s abandon. Finally, we are freed to enjoy Jesus—not only as our Lord and Savior, but also as our all-surpassing, soul-satisfying Treasure. Desiring God may turn your Christian world upside down. And that will be a good thing, for the glory of God, and for your deepest joy. Includes a study guide for individual and small group use.

No happier phrase was ever coined than the last sentence of the Nicene Creed. ... The life of the world to come is above all and before all the true life of this world made eternal, immortal, carried to its highest potentialities. The difficulty lies in discernment between the true and illusory life, between the abnormal yearnings of a fallen nature and the steady aspirations of the sound spirit in man. -Dom Anscar Vonier In The Life of the World to Come Abbot Vonier presents the Catholic understanding of eternal life as the greatest expectation of the Christian soul, and the completion of every perfection, both of spirit and body. Along with a clear and beautiful exposition of the nature of life in heaven and the soul's union with God, Vonier answers many of the most pressing difficulties Christians find in coming to terms spiritually with the goodness of eternal life: How can we be content knowing that some souls are lost? Does the human personality disappear when it receives a new life? Can a changeless life really be joyful? Consistently beautiful and illuminating, The Life of the World to Come is one of the great theological meditations on heaven written in our time.

When a woman becomes pregnant, miscarriage is usually the furthest thing from her mind. Such was the case for Jessalyn Hutto when she became pregnant with her first baby. But as is all too common in our post-fall world, the life she carried came to an abrupt end. Death had visited her womb, and the horrors of miscarriage had become a part of her life’s story. ••• Ultimately, she would lose two children in the womb, at 6 and 15 weeks gestation. Through these painful losses, a whole new world of suffering opened up to her. It seemed that everywhere she looked women were quietly mourning the loss of their unborn children. Yet this particular type of loss has been grossly overlooked by the church. ••• Couples navigating the unique sorrow of losing a child are often left with little biblical counsel to draw upon. Well-meaning friends and family often offer empty platitudes and Christian clichés. But what these couples truly need is the hope of the gospel. ••• Short, sensitive, and theologically robust, Inheritance of Tears offers hope and comfort to those who are called to walk through the painful trial of miscarriage, and shows pastors and church members how to effectively minister to these parents in their time of need.
