The Light of Christ provides an accessible presentation of Catholicism that is grounded in traditional theology, but engaged with a host of contemporary questions or objections. Inspired by the theologies of Iranaeus, Thomas Aquinas and John Henry Newman, and rooted in a post-Vatican II context, Fr. Thomas Joseph White presents major doctrines of the Christian religion in a way that is comprehensible for non-specialists: knowledge of God, the mystery of the Trinity, the Incarnation and the atonement, the sacraments and the moral life, eschatology and prayer. At the same time, The Light of Christ also addresses topics such as evolution, the modern historical study of Jesus and the Bible, and objections to Catholic moral teaching. Touching on the concerns of contemporary readers, Fr. White examines questions such as whether Christianity is compatible with the findings of the modern sciences, do historical Jesus studies disrupt or confirm the teaching of the faith, and does history confirm the antiquity of Catholic claims. This book serves as an excellent introduction for young professionals with no specialized background in theology who are interested in learning more about Catholicism, or as an introduction to Catholic theology. It will also serve as a helpful text for theology courses in a university context. As Fr. White states in the book’s introduction: “This is a book that offers itself as a companion. I do not presume to argue the reader into the truths of the Catholic faith, though I will make arguments. My goal is to make explicit in a few broad strokes the shape of Catholicism. I hope to outline its inherent intelligibility or form as a mystery that is at once visible and invisible, ancient and contemporary, mystical and reasonable.”

Buddhism's influence is growing in the West, as seen in the widespread use of Buddhist mindfulness apps in people's attempts to unwind, or the casual use of words like nirvana and karma that have crept into the English language. Whether we meet it in the East or West, what is Buddhism? What is at the heart of its teachings? How does Buddhism differ from Christianity, and are they compatible? Through a collection of true short stories and testimonies, Buddhism in the Light of Christ--a sequel and companion to Esther Baker's first book, I Once was a Buddhist Nun--takes an insightful look at some core Buddhist beliefs and practices, and then reflects on them from a Christian viewpoint and biblical understanding. Esther tackles important questions such as: How does the Buddhist goal nirvana and God differ? and Is Buddhism a form of idolatry? Her responses reveal a penetrating understanding that helps to unravel and demystify the true nature of Buddhism. Buddhism in the Light of Christ also includes helpful suggestions on how to share Jesus with Buddhist friends, as well as important considerations regarding discipleship once a Buddhist has come to know Christ.

There may come times in your life when God puts someone in your path whom you may or may not know who may well be facing a spiritual life and death situation. The time and attention you give to that individual in their time of need may serve as the catalyst for the in-breaking of God’s providential will in the life of that person. As time passes, you might occasionally find yourself reflecting on that experience from the past, thanking God for how he used you in such a time of need. But slowly, almost imperceptibly, you begin to sense that God had something profound to reveal to you through that situation. In DAYBREAK, author Paul Gasque begins by showing how deep within the recesses of your own spirit may lie a hidden hopelessness desperately searching for a way out—a dark, seemingly unredeemed area of your being. You have been unable to name it. Could it be a sheer lack of purpose for and meaning to life? You long for a better day, a better situation, a better station in life. But when? As your heart becomes open to the Spirit of God moving in your life, there is a sound, the voice of a gentle whisper as if speaking to you from a remote distance, but drawing nearer and clearer, saying to you, “Hold on, hold on, for daybreak is coming. The light of Christ has not left you. Your new day has arrived.”

The good, the true and the beautiful--it is for these that our souls long. Though they reside in unity and perfection in God alone, the written word is one place we can discover glimmers of divine light. The writings of great souls can turn our gaze toward God as he is revealed in Jesus Christ. Even authors who do not know Christ or who reject Christ can still point to him, for anyone who seeks the truth finds it; and any one who turns his back on the truth turns away from a someone whose presence can often be more keenly felt in his absence. In this volume, Lucy Beckett illuminates some of the finest writings in the Western tradition and trains our eye to discover in them the Christian vision of God. She masterfully guides us through Sophocles, Plato, Augustine, Dante, Shakespeare, Dostoyevsky and many others, deftly demonstrating each author's worth as a bearer of truth.
