  • 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.

  • "You Made Us for Yourself"by Jared Ortiz

    Fortress Press 2016; US$ 77.99

    Augustine?s Confessions is probably the most commented upon text of early Christianity. Yet, there is a general consensus that this justly famous work is neither well composed nor structurally unified. ?You Made Us for Yourself? aims to challenge this common notion by approaching the Confessions in light of what Augustine himself would have considered... more...

  • Jesus of Koreaby Paul Hyoshin Kim; Daniel L. Migliore

    Fortress Press 2016; US$ 28.99

    Many people look to the 1970s and 1980s to find the cause of the rapid growth of Christianity in Korea.

There, we will learn how the story of the ?American... more...

  • 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.
