Catholicity Of Reason$36.99Add to cart
An original argument for the recovery of a robust notion of reason and truth in response to modern rationalism and postmodern skepticism
The Catholicity of Reason explains the “grandeur of reason,” the recollection of which Benedict XVI has presented as one of the primary tasks in Christian engagement with the contemporary world.
While postmodern thinkers — religious and secular alike — have generally sought to respond to the hubris of Western thought by humbling our presumptuous claims to knowledge, D. C. Schindler shows in this book that only a robust confidence in reason can allow us to remain genuinely open both to God and to the deep mystery of things. Drawing from both contemporary and classical theologians and philosophers, Schindler explores the basic philosophical questions concerning truth, knowledge, and being — and proposes a new model for thinking about the relationship between faith and reason.
The reflections brought together in this book bring forth a dramatic conception of human knowing that both strengthens our trust in reason and opens our mind in faith.
Joseph Ratzinger In Cummunio 2$33.99Add to cart
In this second volume in the series Joseph Ratzinger in Communio Pope Benedict XVI responds to many issues surrounding Christology and anthropology today, including resurrection, immortality, hope, technology, and secularism.
As David Schindler notes in his introduction, “Cardinal Ratzinger — Pope Benedict XVI — rarely writes on any churchly matter that does not manifest its implications for man and culture, and vice versa. Indeed, this indissoluble linking is one of the main distinguishing features of his theology.” This is the penultimate volume in the series.
On Pilgrimage$23.50Add to cart
When “On Pilgrimage” was first published in 1948, Dorothy Day was not only the head of the Catholic Worker movement. She was also a mother, a grandmother, a reformer, a pacifist, a public speaker, a voracious reader, a gifted writer and a passionate believer. In this book, actually a diary she kept during 1948, she wrote about all of these facets of her life. But whether describing her visits to her daughters farm or the writings of the saints, she was always exploring the same thing, namely, the many gifts of God’s love and how we should respond to them.
