The Hound of Distributism

Edited by Richard Aleman

A Solution for our Social and Economic Crisis

Distributism is a political economy championing the sustainability of decentralized, local economies with the aim of ensuring the widest ownership of the means of production.  The solution to our present socio-economic malaise is an economy that treats people and God as if they mattered.

The Hound of Distributism is a collection of essays written by leading distributist authors from around the world.  Given our present social and economic crisis, this timely and rich volume challenges the sterility of our present by recovering the value of the socio-economic theory of Distritutism.

The Woman Who Was Chesterton

Nancy Carpentier Brown

This is a love story.   But it is also a detective story, and best of all it is a true story told here for  the first time.  Gilbert Keith Chesterton was a romantic, a writer of detective stories and a teller of the truth.   His own story and the stories he told are becoming better and better known, but what has remained unknown is the story of the most important person in his life, his wife Frances.

Nancy Carpentier Brown has done  incredible detective work to uncover the mystery of Frances, tracking a figure who managed to leave very few traces of herself.

It is quite likely that as more is discovered about Frances, more biographies will be written of her, and they will be even more complete. But they will all come back to this one.

A Year with Mary

Paul Thigpen

Books about the Blessed Virgin abound, yet the words of St Bernard of Clairvaux still ring true: “Of Mary, there is never enough!”.  She is a mystery that faithful Christians seek to understand more fully, an ocean “full of Grace” still awaiting deeper exploration.

In A Year with Mary: Daily Meditations on the Mother of God, best-selling author Paul Thigpen sets sail on that ocean, using as his map the profound insights of saints and other spiritual writers.  These 365 reflections, drawn from their writings reveal Mary’s role in God’s plan, the virtues she so perfectly models and the rich benefits of Marian devotion.

Did you know that the events of the Lord of the Rings are deeply intertwined with the Christian calendar?  Or what the Ring, with its awesome and terrible power, represents?  How do the figures of good and evil in the story reflect those forces in our own lives?  Find the answers to these questions and much more in Frodo’s Journey.
