The Catholic Teen Bible

product image
$15.95
Sometimes the answers aren't enough. Sometimes you want to know why they're the answers.

Any Bible can answer questions. This is the one that explains why those answers are the answers.

In twenty-five very compelling tabs spread throughout the Bible text, Prove It! The Catholic Teen Bible gives the why to the biggest questions of all. To the questions you've been asking your parents, your teachers, your friends yourself:

What's life all about and where do I fit in?

What's my life all about, and where do

God, family, friends, and all the rest fit in?

How do I know God even exists, and what

do the life and death of Jesus have to do

with me right here, right now?

If God loves us all, why should I bother

taking my Catholicism seriously?

If all religions are pretty much the same,

why be a Catholic at all?

    New Revised Standard Version: Holy Bible

    product image
    $9.99

    Few Bible translations achieve the degree of respect and acceptance enjoyed by the Revised Standard Version over the past half century. Now, with all the Bible's literal accuracy and dignity preserved, we welcome the New RSV! Dramatic archeological discoveries shed new light on our understanding of ancient languages while, no less dramatically, our own use of language changes, too. The most broadly representative translation team yet assembled worked with these changes to bring us the NRSV -- a translation as literal as possible. Key changes include: - Replacement of archaic words; - Revision of English words that have changed in meaning; - Correction of confusing word order; Use of common-gender words where intended; Improvement in the sound and clarity of text when read aloud. Accurate, understandable, and reverent. A new standard for all -- the NRSV.

    A Worrier's Guide to the Bible 50 Verses to Ease Anxieties

    product image
    $10.99

    Ever wished for a way to stop worrying? That fears or anxieties would leave you? When you listen to Scripture, do you wonder if it is even possible not to worry?

    Gary Zimak writes that anxiety can be a blessing. If you think this sounds just crazy, then this is the book for you. Consider what the Word of God teaches us on the subject of worry in times of confusion, despair, doubt, fear, persecution, sickness, and troubles.

    With astute reflection, Zimak brings Scripture to life in A Worrier's Guide to the Bible: 50 Verses to Ease Anxieties. Though your life is filled with struggles that might seem endless or insurmountable, you will remember, with the help of these powerful verses, that we are an Easter people; a people of hope. So, as Padre Pio emphatically proclaimed: "Pray, hope, and don't worry"!

    Building a Bridge: How the Catholic Church and the LGBT Community Can Enter into a Relationship of Respect, Compassion, and Sensitivity- Paperback

    product image
    $14.99

    In this revised and expanded paperback of his groundbreaking book, Jesuit priest and New York Times bestselling author James Martin makes the surprisingly controversial argument that Catholic leaders should stop seeing the LGBT community as "the other" and instead reach out to them with greater compassion and openness.

    This new edition includes a new introduction along with forty percent new material, including stories from LGBT Catholics, and responses to the common questions about ministry to LGBT people. Father Martin turns to three virtues from the Catechism of the Catholic Church--"respect, compassion, and sensitivity"--as a model for how both the Catholic leadership and LGBT Catholics can move together on a "two-way bridge" toward reconciliation and love.

    This revolutionary book also includes spiritual and biblical resources for the LGBT community and their families, friends, and allies. Father Martin offers biblical passages, accompanied by meditations and questions for reflection, to help LGBT people find their place in the church and enter into a deeper relationship with God. Building a Bridge is a compassionate book desperately needed in today's climate of divisiveness.
