    “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.

    We’ve grown way too comfortable with the story of Jesus.

Nice man, right? Taught us to love one another. Said not to judge people. Tragically killed by his enemies. We celebrate his birthday every year.

It’s time to put away this small, safe version of Jesus, says Cy Kellett (host, Catholic Answers Live). Nobody that bland could have transformed the world as he did. In A Teacher of Strange Things, Cy presents Jesus Christ undiluted by sentiment or familiarity, with all his radical words and deeds uncensored.

Who was Jesus? What did he claim to be? Why did he captivate his followers and foes alike? Should we separate the “Jesus of history” from the “Jesus of faith”?

What did Jesus teach? Did he really say he’s the only way? When he commanded us to love and not to sin, what did that mean? Which doctrines did he take for granted and which did he turn upside-down?

Why do people still follow him? Where does Jesus still live and teach today? How does Jesus fit in a modern world moving away from God? Is it really possible to be friends with someone who died 2,000 years ago?  

Cy takes you on a journey of discovery through these questions and many more, helping you see with fresh eyes the once-familiar Jesus Christ. If you are a seeker, you will rethink everything you took for granted about him. If you are his follower, you will come to love him with new and greater zeal.

    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.

    To some, the Catholic doctrine of purgatory is murky and mysterious—even scary. What is this shadowy state between earth and heaven supposed to be? Others wonder how it’s even possible for saved souls to be suffering in the afterlife if Jesus...

    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!

    Every Catholic has heard the challenge:

“How can you believe that? Don’t you know the Bible says…”

It’s a challenge we have to meet. If we can’t reconcile apparent contradictions between Scripture and Catholic teaching, how can our own faith survive? And if we can’t help our Protestant brothers and sisters overcome their preconceptions about “unbiblical” Catholic doctrines and practices, how will they ever come to embrace the fullness of the Faith?

In Meeting the Protestant Challenge, Karlo Broussard gives you the knowledge and tools you need to answer fifty of the most common Bible-based objections to Catholicism.

    How can the Mass be a sacrifice when the Bible says it’s just a memorial?
    Why do Catholics stress good works when the Bible says we’re saved by faith?
    Scripture says that all have sinned—so what Catholics believe about Mary being “immaculate” is plainly false.
    Jesus said to call no man father, yet that’s what Catholics call their priests! How much clearer could it be?

For these challenges and many more, Karlo provides a step-by-step plan for understanding the roots of the objection, breaking down the context and full meaning of the Scripture passages, anticipating followup arguments, and offering your own friendly counter-challenge to help Protestants begin to see how the Bible and Catholic teaching actually coexist in harmony.

Don’t get caught off guard! When the next biblical challenge comes, be ready to meet it with confidence.
