He was an industrialist. An economist. A medical humanitarian. A media pioneer. An educator. A moral reformer. A botanist. And a Christian missionary. And he did more for the transformation of the Indian subcontinent in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries than any other individual before or since.
Many know of William Carey. Some know about the specifics of his work and ministry. But few understand the profound contemporary significance of his life. Few realize how much we owe the increasing globalization of Christianity to the silent revolution he initiated. Fewer still are aware of his legacy of sensitivity to the variety of issues confronting true gospel witness in any culture.
This biography about the central character in the story of India's modernization and transformation will help you understand Carey's impact. But The Legacy of William Carey is more than a biography. It is a charge to all Christians to respond in kind within our own cultures, and to use Carey's example as our model for taking the light of the Gospel into every corner of society. If we follow in his footsteps, not only will lives be bettered this side of heaven, but hearts will be changed for eternity--and entire cultures transformed for Christ.

Plunged into the icy waters of the Hudson...God spared Frederick
Berretta\'s life in an instant -- and changed his heart forever.
New from Saint Benedict Press.
Born in the holy city of Amritsar and educated at Khalsa College, Dr Bhagat Singh Thind arrived in the United States in 1912 and became a great teacher of purest spirituality, whose legacy continues to inspire truth-seekers to this day. During his early years in the lumber mills of the Pacific Northwest, Dr Thind was active in the Gadar movement, helping to secure the same liberty for Indians at home that he and other immigrants sought in America. After a brief stint in the U.S. Army during World War 1, he embarked on a lifelong career of lecturing and writing that would eventually reach millions of truth-seekers world-wide. At the same time, he fought for - and eventually won - American citizenship, a struggle that included a 'landmark' Supreme Court case with a most regret-table outcome. In 1929 Dr Thind, or 'Doctorji' as his students lovingly called him, began to publish - nearly a dozen books in his lifetime, with more than a score available today. In them he set forth the profound philosophy of Spiritual Science, a tested method of uniting the individual soul with its ultimate Creator, which he in-sisted each person must do for himself. This long-awaited biography, including dozens of rare photographs, traces the footsteps of Dr Thind's remarkable life, outlines the core principles of his teachings, and examines his legacy through the personal recollections of students and family who knew Doctorji first-hand.

"Unmasked, unsettling, and unforgettable . . . this will change the landscape of your soul." -Ann Voskamp "Filled with the raw pain, beauty, mystery, and grace that our hearts were meant for." -Matt Chandler Prepare yourself for an unvarnished look at the Christian life, told now for the first time. A powerful memoir of finding beauty and friendship through the pain of loss, tragedy, and brokenness, Even in Our Darkness explores what it means to know God and be known by him. Jack Deere tells the true story of his life growing up near Fort Worth, Texas in the 1950's and the disintegration of his family following his father's suicide. In his mid-twenties, Jack would rise to fame and success as a leading scholar, popular speaker, and bestselling author. But despite being rescued and exalted, Jack would ultimately be crushed in the years that followed. He would lose his son to suicide and his wife to alcoholism. Only then would Jack wrestle with his own addictions, surrender control, and experience true healing. An authentic story of the Christian life, Even in Our Darkness will serve as your own guide in overcoming life's disappointments and learning to hear God speak in unbelievable ways. "Jack Deere speaks on a vulnerable, raw, and honest level about his own narrative and the darkness he has encountered, both around him and within his own soul. He ultimately points the reader to the God who is always there and who always sustains." -Dr. John Townsend "Written beautifully and harrowingly-and so grippingly that you won't want to stop reading-this story is everyone's story." -Eric Metaxas "Raw, gritty, and transparent, Jack's writing rings with effervescent joy and searing pain. I read the last seventy-five pages with my heart in my throat and tears in my eyes. If I could, I'd send every person reading this a copy myself. It's that good. -Lynn Vincent
A concise and illuminating introduction to the elusive Thomas Aquinas, the man and the saint Leaving so few traces of himself behind, Thomas Aquinas seems to defy the efforts of the biographer. Highly visible as a public teacher, preacher, and theologian, he nevertheless has remained nearly invisible as man and saint. What can be discovered about Thomas Aquinas as a whole? In this short, compelling portrait, Denys Turner clears away the haze of time and brings Thomas vividly to life for contemporary readers-those unfamiliar with the saint as well as those well acquainted with his teachings. Building on the best biographical scholarship available today and reading the works of Thomas with piercing acuity, Turner seeks the point at which the man, the mind, and the soul of Thomas Aquinas intersect. Reflecting upon Thomas, a man of Christian Trinitarian faith yet one whose thought is grounded firmly in the body's interaction with the material world, a thinker at once confident in the powers of human reason and a man of prayer, Turner provides a more detailed human portrait than ever before of one of the most influential philosophers and theologians in all of Western thought.
One of the most respected figures in Catholic higher education, the Reverend Edward A. Malloy has written a thoroughly engaging first installment of his three-volume memoir. This book covers the years from his birth in 1941 to 1975, when he received his doctorate in Christian ethics from Vanderbilt. Written in his trademark self-effacing and humorous style, Malloy's book portrays his childhood growing up in the northeast Washington, D.C., neighborhood of Brookland (the neighborhood's alias was "Little Rome" because of all the Catholic church-related institutions it encompassed). Malloy describes his family and early education, his growing love of sports, and his years at Archbishop Carroll High School where he played on an extraordinarily successful basketball team. The next five chapters chronicle his undergraduate years at Notre Dame, where he was recruited to play basketball, his decision to become a priest, his seminary experience, the taking of final vows, and his graduate school experience at Vanderbilt University.
"Monk's Tale "is a captivating account of growing up Catholic in the 1940s and '50s, as well as a revealing reflection of the dramatic changes that occurred in the Catholic Church and in American society during the 1960s. This book is also a loving tribute to Malloy's parents, sisters, friends, teachers, religious mentors, and colleagues who helped pave his way to the University of Notre Dame and to his profound commitment to service, leadership, and God.
"The first volume of Monk Malloy's memoir is more than a collection of personal reminiscences of the early decades of his life by a retired Catholic university president. At its heart the volume is also a detailed chronicle of the formation of a son who, from his youth during the second half of the last century, absorbed the religious faith and convictions of his representative middle-class Irish American Catholic family. It is the influence of that faith and cultural heritage throughout his personal and professional formation that grounds Monk's aspirations and achievements as priest, religious, and educator." --Ernest Bartell, C.S.C., Faculty Fellow, Kellogg Institute for International Studies
"One of the greatest blessings in life is the opportunity to touch people's lives. Father Malloy has done that as a player, teacher, priest, and President of the University of Notre Dame . . . and he has done it again in this inspiring and motivating book. Be prepared to laugh. Monk can really spin a tale." --Morgan Wootten, Coach Emeritus, DeMatha High School
"Father Monk gives an insight into his life by sharing success, challenges, and a destiny of response to a call to be a Holy Cross religious-priest. It is a journey of a soul " --Rev. Thomas E. Chambers, C.S.C., President Emeritus, Our Lady of Holy Cross College, New Orleans
Like millions of us, Anjali Kumar, a lawyer for Google, was not religious. But when her daughter was born, Anjali felt compelled to find God-or at least some form of enlightenment-that she could someday impart to her daughter.
Knowing that she couldn't simply Google an answer to What is the meaning of life?, Anjali set out on a spiritual pilgrimage, and nothing was off limits. She headed to Peru to learn from shamans, practiced transcendental meditation, convened with angels, and even worked with a medium to speak with the dead-all while searching for answers to life's most universal questions: Why are we here? What happens when we die? Is there a God?
Her spiritual director tells of St. Catherine's many miracles, conversions, fasting, etc. She never failed to convert sinners who came to her; they could not resist her "heavenly charm." She held familiar conversation with Jesus and Mary, and had them visit her often in her room.
Beginning with Jesus' birth, Ken Bailey leads you on a kaleidoscopic study of Jesus throughout the four Gospels. Bailey examines the life and ministry of Jesus with attention to the Lord's Prayer, the Beatitudes, Jesus' relationship to women, and especially Jesus' parables. Through it all, Bailey employs his trademark expertise as a master of Middle Eastern culture to lead you into a deeper understanding of the person and significance of Jesus within his own cultural context. With a sure but gentle hand, Bailey lifts away the obscuring layers of modern Western interpretation to reveal Jesus in the light of his actual historical and cultural setting. This entirely new material from the pen of Ken Bailey is a must-have for any student of the New Testament. If you have benefited from Bailey's work over the years, this book will be a welcome and indispensable addition to your library. If you are unfamiliar with Bailey's work, this book will introduce you to a very old yet entirely new way of understanding Jesus.
Brutally honest, beautifully written, THE RABBI'S DAUGHTER is the compulsive story of a woman trying to find love, and struggling to make peace with her faith, her parents, and ultimately herself.
Reva Mann was a wild child. Granddaughter of the Chief Rabbi of Israel and daughter of a highly respected London Rabbi, she rebelled strongly and so began a desperate search to discover who she was. In a whirlwind of sex and drugs, Reva strove to leave her strict family life behind her and find her own path.
When, years later, Reva decides she wants to return to her Jewish faith, she leaves London and enters a woman's yeshiva in Jerusalem. Driven by a strong yearning to return to a higher level of spirituality, she is determined to find a strictly orthodox holy man to marry and have children. So Reva begins a new life, wanting to suppress her former desires and needs, and to find her way to God.
In this honest and often shocking memoir, Reva presents to us the secret world of ultra Orthodox Judaism. Fascinating insights into modern day matchmakers, ritual baths, sexual codes of conduct and Jewish practice are depicted, and Reva's journey is brought to life in stunning detail.
What are the odds? Statistics tell us that African American males growing up in a single-parent household are nine times more likely to drop out of high school and twenty times more likely to end up in prison than any other demographic. But what would it take for one young man to not only rise above those statistics but also become a celebrated Navy Seal, an acclaimed Hollywood actor, and a deep man of faith?
For Remi Adeleke-whose life journey has been one of many complicated twists and turns-there's only one answer: God. Through times of intense struggle, pressure, and temptation, Remi's inspiring story is one of following God's voice, even when it didn't make sense, overcoming the odds, and ultimately experiencing true personal transformation.
In Transformed, Remi takes readers back to stories from his childhood as Nigerian royalty, to losing his father early in life and being raised by a single mother in the Bronx, to illegal activities as a young man that threatened to derail his future. From troubled teen to Navy SEAL, this incredibly popular up-and-coming actor has beaten the odds at every turn. Remi explores the moments of redemption and grace that saved him and how, through finding faith in Christ, he turned to the one Father he'd been searching for all along.
Imbued with character and independence, strength and
articulateness, humor and conviction, abundant biblical knowledge
and intense compassion, Katharina Schutz Zell (1498-1562) was an
outspoken religious reformer in sixteenth-century Germany who
campaigned for the right of clergy to marry and the responsibility
of lay people--women as well as men--to proclaim the Gospel. As one
of the first and most daring models of the pastor's wife in the
Protestant Reformation, Schutz Zell demonstrated that she could be
an equal partner in marriage; she was for many years a respected,
if unofficial, mother of the established church of Strasbourg in an
age when ecclesiastical leadership was dominated by men.
2017 marks the 200th anniversary of the death of Jane Austen, whose six completed novels have never been out of print. Best known for her novels, 'Sense and Sensibility', 'Pride and Prejudice', 'Mansfield Park', and 'Emma', first published anonymously, Jane commented, critiqued and illuminated the life of the English upper classes. But did Jane's writings highlight anything about her own spirituality? In this celebratory book, Paula Hollingsworth explores Jane Austen's gentle but strong faith and the effect it had both on her life and her writing. Drawing on Jane's life story, her letters, her friendships, her books and the characters portrayed, Paula shows the depth of Jane Austen's spirituality.
