    While all Christians -- and even people of other faiths -- agree that Mary is the mother of Jesus Christ, her role beyond this is not as clear.

In Why Mary?, you will come to understand why it is our Christian duty to venerate Mary as both the first Christian and the Mother of our Savior.

From Mary's perpetual virginity to her bodily Assumption into heaven, this guide will provide you with explanations -- drawn from Scripture and Church Tradition -- of the four Marian Dogmas, as well as Mary's role as spiritual Mother of the world.

    A new way to bring the Catholic Faith to young people

Brendan and Erc are just your average interplanetary mailmen trying to find their way in the galaxy. But one day, while piloting cargo through the far reaches of space, they suddenly find themselves on a journey they didn’t expect: a journey to the truth.

A totally new kind of Catholic resource for apologetics and evangelization, The Truth Is Out There combines the visual excitement and quirky humor of graphic novels with solid popular philosophy and theology.

The result is a book in which everyone from teens to adults can find accessible answers to questions about God, the soul, true happiness, and much more—and have fun doing it!

And because Brendan and Erc start their journey at the very beginning, readers don’t have to be Catholic—or possess any kind of faith—to appreciate the thoughtful ideas and arguments they’ll encounter. If you just have an open mind (and a sense of adventure) you will come away from these pages with a clearer sense of life’s purpose, and a better understanding of the reasons for believing in God, Jesus, and the Church.

And if you’re already a believer, The Truth Is Out There will deepen your knowledge of the Faith and sharpen your skills at defending it.

"Thank you, Amadeus,for presenting the journey from the prison walls of our mind to the exhilarating freedom of the truth in such an exciting way. The reader of this intellectually challenging comic book will never be the same!” -Most Reverend Gregory J. Mansour, STL Bishop of the Eparchy of Saint Maron of Brooklyn

“This is a clever way to present truths of the faith to young people, especially in today’s image-driven yet confused society. Kudos to the author for his artwork and creativity.” -Brother Rahl Bunsa, BH Former Superior of the Brotherhood of Hope

Amadeus is a contemplative monk in Massachusetts. Since having entered the cloister in 2003, he lives a life of prayer, adoration, work and study. Although he had experience with comic strips in his past, this is his first full length graphic novel.

    What if Protestantism were true?

What if the Reformers really were heroes, the Bible the sole rule of faith, and Christ’s Church just an invisible collection of loosely united believers?

As an Evangelical, Devin Rose used to believe all of it. Then one day the nagging questions began. He noticed things about Protestant belief and practice that didn’t add up. He began following the logic of Protestant claims to places he never expected it to go—leading to conclusions no Christians would ever admit to holding.

In The Protestant’s Dilemma, Rose examines over thirty of those conclusions, showing with solid evidence, compelling reason, and gentle humor how the major tenets of Protestantism—if honestly pursued to their furthest extent—wind up in dead ends of absurdity.

The only escape? Catholic truth, which Rose patiently unpacks. In each instance, he shows how Catholicism solves the Protestant’s dilemma through the witness of Scripture, Christian history, and the authority with which Christ himself undeniably vested his Church. The Protestant’s Dilemma is the perfect book to give non-Catholics trying to work through their own nagging doubts, or for Catholics looking for a fresh way to deepen their understanding of the Faith.

    With the recent government mandate requiring insurance companies to pay for contraception, sterilization, and abortifacient drugs, a clarion warning has rung out for all persons of faith: Religious freedom in America is threatened like never before.

Slowly but inexorably, the right to live according to one’s religious conscience has been eroded. Today, politicians speak instead of the “right to worship,” as if religious freedom somehow ends when you step out of church.

What can be done?

In Straight Talk About Religious Liberty, learn where freedom of religion really comes from and why it must not, why it cannot, be denied—not without destroying the foundation for all other human freedoms. And find out what actions you can take today to help preserve this most basic liberty . . . before it’s too late.

    Every year it kills more people than heart disease, stroke, lung disease, cancer, diabetes, AIDS, accidents, murder, and war—put together. It kills almost as many people as all other causes combined. It is the single largest preventable cause of death.

It is abortion.

Every year 44 million children die before birth due to induced abortion. By comparison, only 57 million people die after birth from all causes of death annually. Abortion is by far the biggest killer today. Yet few realize the gravity of the situation. Many have been deceived into thinking that abortion doesn’t really kill children, and others — who do recognize the humanity of the unborn — simply do not understand the urgency of the problem. That is why it is time for straight talk about abortion.

In Catholic Answers booklet, Straight Talk About Abortion you’ll receive an abundance of useful information including: Facts about unborn children Facts about abortion What the Bible says about abortion What the Church says about abortion How to counter common arguments which try to justify abortion And so much more…
