BENEDICT BACKWARDS
Reading the Rule in the 21st century
Terrence Kardong

Kardong builds the case that the Rule of Benedict is best read “backwards”, that is, with emphasis on the last chapters, not the first ones. Benedict starts out dependent on the Rule of the Master, but he ends on a much more self-assured note, revealing more about his own thoughts on matters of monastic life. Kardong shows the final chapters of the Rule are primarily about community, and they provide insight into Benedict’s vision for his monks.

FINDING JESUS AMONG MUSLIMS
How loving Islam makes me a better Catholic
Jordan Denari Duffner

Why should Christians engage in interfaith dialogue with Muslims? What is Islamophobia, and what should we do about it?
Drawing from church teaching, the stories of saints and martyrs, and her extensive personal experiences living among Muslims in both the USA and the Middle East, Duffner explains why all Christians are called to participate in a “dialogue of life” with Muslims.

HOLY SPIRIT, FIRE OF DIVINE LOVE
Wilfrid Stinissen, OCD

The Holy Spirit desires to live in us so that we can love God and others with God’s own love. As the Holy Spirit descended upon the early Church at Pentecost to set the world ablaze with the fire of divine love, so He wants to do so with us. These powerful reflections invite the reader to experience deeper intimacy with the Lord.

WHEN I IN AWESOME WONDER
Liturgy distilled from daily life
Jill Crainshaw

All of life is liturgy. People encounter God as they live, work, and play in human communities and as they work to sustain the health of communities and the ground on which communities are built. 
Liturgy is distilled from everyday life when we peer through the mist and see the sacramental and spiritual dimensions of daily actions, objects, conversations, and events. 
“This book is provocative, instructive, and enormously inspiring, mirroring qualities that make her an exemplary liturgist, preacher, and teacher.”
- Veronice Miles, Wesley Theological Seminary
