    Georgetown University Press 2016; US$ 32.95

In The Jesuits and Globalization: Historical Legacies... more...

  • The Other Catholicsby Julie Byrne

    Columbia University Press 2016; US$ 28.99

    Independent Catholics are not formally connected to the pope in Rome. They practice apostolic succession, seven sacraments, and devotion to the saints. But without a pope, they can change quickly and experiment freely. Some affirm communion for the divorced, women?s ordination, clerical marriage, and same-sex marriage. From their early-modern origins... more...

  • American Jesuits and the Worldby John T. McGreevy

    Princeton University Press 2016; US$ 35.00

    At the start of the nineteenth century, the Jesuits seemed fated for oblivion. Dissolved as a religious order in 1773 by one pope, they were restored in 1814 by another, but with only six hundred aged members. Yet a century later, the Jesuits numbered seventeen thousand men and were at the vanguard of the Catholic Church's expansion around the world.... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Innovative Catholicism and the Human Condition †gives an anthropological account of a progressive religious movement in the Roman Catholic Church that is attempting to reconcile religious conviction and reason, and, ergo, modify the human condition.

  • The Oxford Movement in Practiceby George Herring

    OUP Oxford 2016; US$ 199.99

    While much on work on the Oxford Movement has concentrated on the principal players' ideas, little has been published on what it meant in practice, particularly in parishes beyond Oxford. This work redresses that balance, with a particular focus on the development of Ritualism in contrast to Tractarianism. more...

  • Mother Angelica Her Grand Silenceby Raymond Arroyo

    The Crown Publishing Group 2016; US$ 23.00

    ?Even now, I still meet with Mother in memory and in spirit. And though I miss her physical presence, the writing of this work has allowed me to once again spend long hours with her and share her essence with others. This final book in the canon captures the last bittersweet years of a faithful woman who, in her grand silence and through her pain,... more...

  • Habitual Offendersby Craig A. Monson

    University of Chicago Press 2016; US$ 40.00

    In April 1644, two nuns fled Bologna?s convent for reformed prostitutes. A perfunctory archiepiscopal investigation went nowhere, and the nuns were quickly forgotten. By June of the next year, however, an overwhelming stench drew a woman to the wine cellar of her Bolognese townhouse, reopened after a two-year absence?where to her horror she discovered... more...

  • Hope for Common Groundby Julie Hanlon Rubio

    Georgetown University Press 2016; US$ 29.95

    In this learned but accessible work for scholars, students, religious, and lay readers, ethicist Julie Hanlon Rubio investigates how Catholics divided by partisan rancor can better solve problems and understand one another.

  • Epiphanyby Michael Coren

    McClelland & Stewart 2016; US$ 24.95

    From the posterboy of Catholic conservatism, a major change of heart and soul on one of the Church's most controversial and intractable stances. "This past February, a conservative Roman Catholic blog, Contra|Diction, gave me perhaps my best headline ever: 'Michael Coren Complicit in Destruction of Souls Who Practice Homosexuality, Pt 1' (I'm still... more...

  • Bearing False Witnessby Rodney Stark

    Templeton Press 2016; US$ 12.99

    As we all know and as many of our well established textbooks have argued for decades, the Inquisition was one of the most frightening and bloody chapters in Western history, Pope Pius XII was anti-Semitic and rightfully called ?Hitler?s Pope,? the Dark Ages were a stunting of the progress of knowledge to be redeemed only by the secular spirit of the... more...
