    When it comes to the history of Christianity, the Catholic Church makes a pretty bold claim: that the earliest Christians were Catholics—and that their beliefs and practices have continued unbroken all the way to the present-day Church. But the...

    After spending more than a millennium in relative obscurity, Saint Joseph has become the second-most mentioned saint in the papal magisterium after the Virgin Mary.

To understand the life and importance of Saint Joseph, a good place to start is with the first papal title ever granted him: “Patron of the Universal Church.”

What is it that Saint Joseph has to offer the Church — and each one of us — today? That’s the question that A Man Named Joseph: Guardian for Our Times seeks to answer. To get there, Catholic Answers Apologist Joe Heschmeyer cuts through a lot of our misconceptions to see what the Bible and the earliest Christians really say about Joseph as a model husband, father, and saint.

Questions at the end of each chapter help guide personal reflection and group discussion. Whatever we may be facing in life, we can go to Joseph for his example, his protection, and his prayers.

    “A TREMENDOUS BREAKTHROUGH” in the study of St. Joseph...

...There are few subjects so challenging” to authors as St. Joseph. So says scholar Scott Hahn in his foreword to St.Joseph and His World. Yet the pages that follow give not merely glimpses, but vistas, of St. Joseph’s world.

You’ll learn about Nazareth — and how it was created almost ex nihilo shortly before Joseph’s birth. You’ll learn about religious practice and education in that place and time. You’ll travel to Egypt and encounter the fascinating settlements of Jews in that land. You’ll also find out how a carpenter worked in those days: what tools he used, what items he crafted, where he got his training, and how he got to and from his job sites.”

St.Joseph and His World provides an imaginative entry into one of the most important lives in all of history — a life too often obscured by later legends.

    In What Really Happens After We Die professor of Church history Dr. James Papandrea gathers in one place all that is known about the afterlife — drawn from the teachings of Jesus, the Apostles, the Church Fathers, and the Church’s Magisterium — affording, for the first time ever, a complete, authoritative, detailed portrait of the state of souls after death and the realms we enter.

The following are among the many questions he answers:

    If, as St. Paul says, “flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God,” how can our bodies enter Heaven?
    After death but before the final resurrection, are we simply unconscious?
    What is our resurrection like? (And does it differ from Jesus’ Resurrection?)
    Are ghosts real? (You’ll be surprised at what the Church Fathers have to say.)
    What is the difference between Heaven and Paradise?
    Which of our parts will accompany us to Heaven (and which must be left behind)?
    In Heaven, do we still eat and drink?
    If, as Jesus says, there’s no marrying in heaven, are we still male and female there?
    After our resurrection, will we, like Jesus, be able to pass through matter?
    And many more fascinating questions answered!
