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.

"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.

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.

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 unique book, readers are taken on a journey to explore the role of the imagination in the face of mystery, whether it be the mystery of God, whose full reality lies beyond our earthly horizons, or the deepest mysteries of life hinted at in the work of fiction. By attending to a series of novels, Paul Lakeland proposes serious fiction as an antidote to the failure of the religious imagination today and shows how literature might lead the secular mind at least to the threshold of mystery.

Bede Griffiths, who died in 1994, was an English Benedictine monk who settled in India in 1955 and went on to become one of the great mystical teachers of our time. In India, where he assumed the dress and ascetic discipline of a Hindu holy man, Griffiths established a Christian community following the customs of a Hindu ashram. Through his immersion in the scriptures of India, he found wisdom and inspiration for his own Christian faith. This volume, which draws on his autobiographical volumes and his many other books, presents the ideal entry to the cosmic and mystical spirituality of a great spiritual guide.

"These letters--part devotion, part historical biography, part contemporary engagement, and part inspiration--reveal Carroll's curiosity and wonder about Francis. She celebrates his whimsical idealism and impetuousness, explores his spirituality and commitment to poverty, and sometimes even questions him. She also uses Francis as a sounding board for larger questions about the world--and, through her own experience, explores how brokenness makes experiencing redemption possible"--Amazon.com.

Since the early centuries, Christians have held up the saints as models of living the Gospel of Jesus Christ. While the church officially recognizes a relatively small number of saints, the actual roster is infinitely wider. Blessed Among Us explores this eclectic “cloud of witnesses”—lay and religious, single and married, canonized and not, and even non-Christians whose faith and wisdom may illuminate our path. Brought to life in the evocative storytelling of Robert Ellsberg, they inspire the moral imagination and give witness to the myriad ways of holiness. In two stories per day for a full calendar year, Ellsberg sketches figures from biblical times to the present age and from all corners of this world—ordinary figures whose extraordinary lives point to the new age in the world to come. Blessed Among Us is drawn from Ellsberg’s acclaimed column of the same name in Give Us This Day, a monthly resource for daily prayer published by Liturgical Press.

The best-selling author of Radical Amazement articulates a transforming vision of spirituality that examines the intricate connectedness of the physical and spiritual worlds, a phenomenon she calls the "field of compassion." In the tradition of Teilhard de Chardin and Thomas Berry, Judy Cannato invites spiritual seekers to embrace the way in which an understanding of religion and the spiritual path is informed and illumined by cutting-edge science. Cannato's newest book is a must-read for those interested in how the new cosmology and the Christian story can be understood in harmony with one another. She shows how modern scientific discoveries demonstrate that at the most fundamental of levels all life is connected and that humankind participates in the unfolding of the universe. This book's compelling and radical call to transformation will inspire readers to choose collaboration and peace over competition and conflict.
