Soundings in Biblical, Trinitarian, and Spiritual Theology
Margaret Turek

book develops a synthesis of the chief insights and convictions concerning the mystery of atonement gleaned primarily from the works of four theological guides: John Paul  II, Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, Hans Urs von Balthasar, and Norbert Hoffmann. Distinct from the majority of theological accounts of atonement - which focus almost exclusively on the role of Christ  - this book highlights the role of God the Father.

Pope Francis officially canonized him a saint on May 15, 2022.

   The Message Behind the Movie
       Engaging Film without Disengaging Faith
       Douglas Beaumont

For Christians to interact well with movies, they must do so without disengaging their faith. What movies say about truth, reality, God, and religion are important to a culture addicted to the silver screen. This book serves both purposes: helping Christians more carefully evaluate the messages movies send by understanding them objectively, and by knowing how to respond to critical issues they contain.

The Pope and the Holocaust
Pius XII and the Secret Vatican Archives

                                   Michael Hesemann

Traces the dramatic words and deeds of Eugenio Pacelli, Pius XII,  in the 1930s and 1940s, including his years as apostolic nuncio in Germany, when National Socialism first took hold of the country. Even some of his most controversial moves, such as the 1933 Vatican concordat, were made to protect souls and lives, both Christian and Jewish. What emerges from Hesemann’s strongly documented evidence is a picture of a man radically committed to the people of Israel and to the God who chose them. As the pope himself remarked in 1938, “It is not legitimate for Christians to take part in anti-Semitism. Spiritually, we are all Semites.”

Sigrid Undset
Reader of Hearts
Aidan Nichols, OP

Unpacks the figure of Sigrid Undset from a distinctively Christian point of view. Rich in both biography and textual analysis—including of works never translated into English—Sigrid Undset: Reader of Hearts renders a shrewd, colourful account of a writer who allowed her art to be transfigured by

the Cross, by the fire of God’s mercy, and thus opened to an intricacy and beauty beyond all telling.

The Story of the Family
G.K.Chesterton on the Only State that Creates
and Loves Its Own Citizens

Edited by Dale Ahlqust

Though we shouldn't have to defend normal things, the fact is, our society has lost touch with the normal and seems to exalt the abnormal. Here is a book that makes a clear case for the family, the glorious heritage of the love between a man and a woman, marriage, parenthood, family life and the

home. Chesterton keenly pits these grounded truths against the fashionable fallacies of divorce, contraception, and abortion, as well as the troubling philosophies afflicting public education and the workplace.
