Adam and Eve after the Pill, Revisited
Mary Eberstadt

Celebrated author Mary Eberstadt continues her ground-breaking examination of the true legacy of the sexual revolution. The book’s predecessor, Adam and Eve after the Pill (2012), dissected the revolution’s microcosmic fallout via its empirical effects on the lives of today’s men, women, and children. This follow-on book tackles, as no other book, the revolution’s macrocosmic transformations in three wider spheres: society, politics, and Church.

Pray. Think. Act.
Lessons in Decision Making from the Desert Fathers
Fr Augustine Wetta, OSB

In the sequel to his best-selling Humility Rules, Fr. Augustine Wetta reaches further back into monastic history to answer one of the most critical questions facing young people today: "How do I make up my mind?"  With his characteristic wit and novel approach to classical art, Father Augustine looks to the wisdom of the Desert Fathers to unearth an ancient and highly efficient method for resolving life’s most pressing dilemmas—even in the midst of distractions, temptations, and disruptions. As he did in Humility Rules, Father Wetta illustrates each chapter with colour reproductions of sacred art that he has embellished with comic flourishes.

What is Christianity?
The Last Writings
Pope Benedict XVI

Near the end of his life Pope Benedict XVI and editor Elio Guerriero gathered together a whole volume of new material, dealing with the themes closest to his heart. The pope asked that it be published upon his death. This final work takes up a kaleidoscopic array of themes: the Christian faith’s relationship with other religions, especially Judaism and Islam; the theology and reform of the liturgy; the priesthood; the saints; the Eucharist; the travesty of abuse; the beauty of nature; Italian and German culture; and much more.
