Cur Deus Verba
Why the Word Became Words
Jeremy Holmes

Cur Deus Verba is a work of theology in the narrow sense: a reflection that takes God as its subject and everything else in relation to God. It treats every aspect of Scripture, including the human elements, to be understood in relation to God. And, as Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger said, “The debate about modern exegesis is, at heart, not a debate among historians, but a philosophical debate.” Cur Deus Verba relies on the philosophy of St. Thomas Aquinas, which Ratzinger described as “an open philosophy, which is

able to accept the biblical phenomenon in all its radicalism.”

Fire of Mercy Vol.IV
Heart of the World
Meditations on the Gospel According to St. Matthew
Erasmo Leiva-Merikakis

To the unstudied eye, St. Matthew's gospel can seem a terse narrative, almost a historical document and not the tremendously spiritual (and doctrinal) storehouse

that it is. In his fourth and final volume of meditations on Matthew (chapters 26-28), Erasmo Leiva continues to show Matthew's prose to be not terse so much as economical - astoundingly so given its depth. The lay reader can derive great profit from reading this. Each short meditation comments on a verse or two, pointing to some facet of the text not immediately apparent, but rich with meaning.

How to Destroy Western Civilization
And Other Ideas from the Cultural Abyss

Peter Kreeft


Presents a series of brilliant essays about many of the issues that increasingly

divide our Western civilization and culture. He states that “these essays are not new proposals or solutions to today’s problems. They are old. They have been tried, and

have worked. They have made people happy and good. That is what makes them so radical and so unusual today. The most uncommon thing today is common sense.”

The Seven Gifts of The Spirit of the Liturgy
Centennial Perspectives on Romano Guardini’s Landmark Work
Edited by Christopher Carstens

I
n his remarkable book, which Pope Benedict XVI claims began the liturgical movement in Germany, Guardini lays out seven core principles of the liturgical spirit, principles that the Second Vatican Council saw as integral to authentic liturgical reform. In this work, eight experts on the liturgy recall Guardini’s spiritual insights, explaining how these can deepen our liturgical understanding and practice today. The contributors are Bishop

Arthur Serratelli, Fr. Cassian Folsom, O.S.B., Dr. Michon Matthiesen, David Fagerberg, Fr. Daniel Cardó, Bishop James Conley, Fr. Emery de Gaál, and Susan Benofy. Guardini’s core liturgical principles—the objective, corporate, universal, symbolic, meaningful, beautiful, serious, and logical - inspired the renewal desired at the Second Vatican Council.

True Friendship
Where Virtue Becomes Happiness
John Cuddeback, Ph.D.

Beginning with the deep connection between virtuous living and human happiness, Cuddeback locates true friendship at the center of the human drama. Aristotle’s classic

division of friendship into three basic kinds sets the foundation for an examination of the virtuous friendships in which human persons most come to life. The remarkable nature

of this friendship shows both why it demands so much of us and offers so much to us, as individuals and as a society.
