  • here are two universal themes in human experience: 1) We all seek true, lasting happiness, and 2) We have trouble finding it, because the world is a messed-up place.

In times of turmoil, when nothing seems normal or certain about our jobs, our health, our beliefs, or the future of our planet, true happiness—and the tranquil peace that comes with it—can seem even more elusive.

In The Words of Eternal Life, Jimmy Akin takes an unflinching look at the problem and offers a solution that is daring and radical yet familiar, and available anywhere, for free, right now. The answer is Jesus, the Word of the Father who teaches us the words of eternal life; the Word made flesh who by the words of a priest comes to dwell among us and feed us with the grace of peace and strength.

Written in a clear, inviting style that speaks equally to religiously unaffiliated inquirers and to believers who may have let their faith get lukewarm or go out of practice, The Words of Eternal Life is a great resource to give loved ones looking for something real and true—or to give your own faith life a helpful boost.

    To many people, even many Christians, purgatory is a fantasy—or worse, a wicked lie invented by the Church to make salvation complicated and keep people in fear.

But apologist Karlo Broussard says that purgatory is fact, not fiction. The Bible supports it, Christians have historically believed in it, and it makes theological sense.

In Purgatory Is for Real, he provides the evidence and reasoning to help you understand this controversial doctrine, and demonstrates how it is actually a joyful, hopeful reality—not something shadowy and mysterious, but a sign of God’s love and mercy.

    n May 1917, the Virgin Mary began appearing to three shepherd children in Fatima, Portugal, bringing them a message of repentance, warning, and hope.

She returned every month of that year through October, when tens of thousands witnessed the event known as the “miracle of the sun.”

She also gave the children a mysterious three-part secret that would not be revealed in its entirety until the year 2000.

The Mysteries of Fatima offers a fascinating look at this crucial Marian apparition. 
In this informative audio set, senior apologist Jimmy Akin and his co-host Domenico Bettinelli dive deep into the mysteries of Fatima in three presentations taken from Jimmy’s top-rated Mysterious World podcast.

  • Perhaps no single theological issue divides Catholics and Protestants, and along so many fine lines, as the question of salvation: namely, are we saved solely by profession of our faith in Jesus, or do our actions (and omissions) play a part? 20 Answers: Faith & Works gives a short and clearly readable explanation of the basic disagreements, provides a compelling case for the traditional Christian understanding that the Catholic Church professes even today, and holds out hope for increasing unity among all believers on this critical issue.
