When the Church was Young: Voices of the Early Fathers
In this engrossing book, Dr. Marcellino D'Ambrosio brings out the colorful personalities of dynamic Christian leaders from the age of the apostles up to the dawn of the middles ages and makes their rich teaching accessible, enjoyable, and relevant to the challenges we face every day.

The Fathers of the Church succeeded in bringing a pagan society to Christ. If we pay attention to what they taught, we will succeed in doing the same for our own increasingly de-Christianized society.

 Exploring Advent with Luke: Four Questions for Spiritual Growth

Exploring Advent with Luke: Four Questions for Spiritual Growth
This creative exploration of Advent guides readers to rediscover the power of the events leading up to the birth of Christ. The four questions of Luke 1, as posed by Zechariah, Mary, Elizabeth, and the people in the Temple, spur readers to personal reflection on disappointment, inadequacy, openness, and trust.
In this fresh, new contemplative Advent companion, Timothy Clayton deftly shows how Luke composed this first chapter of his gospel to deepen understanding of the birth of Jesus and how meditation on the questions posed by its main characters can help resolve issues that hinder the joy of Christmas. Designed to be used on a weekly basis through Advent and during the Twelve Days of Christmas, this reflective guide is ideal for individual and small-group use. Clayton's insight is reminiscent of Henri Nouwen or Thomas Merton and brings the story of Christ's birth to life anew.
