Genre: Religion

Over the past ten years, Matthew Kelly has seen more of the world than most presidents and more of the Church than most bishops. Now, in this unique and timely book, he proposes that Catholicism is not a lifeless set of rules and regulations, but a way of life designed by God to help each person reach his or her full potential. With remarkable insight, Kelly dispels dozens of the myths that surround the practice and rejection of Catholicism today, and provides a profound and practical vision of what will lead the Catholic Church to thrive again in the future. "Holiness is to become the-best-version-of-yourself. Francis of Assisi spent his whole life trying to become the best-version-of-himself. Mother Teresa spent her whole life trying to become the-best-version-of-herself. God calls us all to holiness, because God wants each of us to be all we can be." "The goal of the Christian life is holiness," Kelly explains, "but somewhere along the way this term disappeared from most Catholic's vocabulary. Either because we thought it was an unattainable ideal or because we felt it lacked relevance in the modern context. Maybe we thought the idea of holiness made people feel guilty. Perhaps we just wanted to make it easier for people. Whatever the reason, the disappearance of this goal hasn't made it easier for modern Catholics; it's made it harder for them."

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU HAD A REALLY MEMORABLE LENT? People of every age yearn for God. This desire for God is written deep within the human heart. Whether we acknowledge it or not, we all have a longing to draw near to God and be in communion with him. We might not recognize this yearning for what it truly is, however. Instead we might seek to satisfy our longings with material things, relationships, careers all of which were never designed to truly fulfill us. All the while, God quietly waits for us in the depths of our souls. He uses our longings to lead us to himself. Lent is the perfect time to stop and reflect on the state of our souls, to examine the way we live our lives. What habits need to change? How can we live more intentionally? How can we grow in our faith? What would transformation look like? A vibrant spiritual life is a great gift, but we don't just stumble into it. Transformation happens when we look honestly at our desires and habits and seek real change with intentionality. During this Lenten time of renewal, let Matthew Kelly be your guide as you take time each day for prayer, reflection, and silence. As you seek the One who is seeking you, allow yourself to be inspired by new dreams and transformed by timeless spiritual disciplines. It s time to rediscover Lent . . .

ISBN: 9783593399188
Release Date: 2013-10-01
Genre: Political Science

Wenn David auf Goliath trifft, hat er zwei Möglichkeiten: Spielt er nach dessen Regeln, wird er verlieren. Ist er bereit, die Regeln der Macht zu brechen, zwingt er den Riesen damit in die Knie. Malcolm Gladwell ist davon überzeugt: Underdogs sind Gewinner! In genialen Episoden von listigen Kriegsherren, halbstarken Basketballteams und inspirierten Softwareentwicklern zeigt der Kultautor, dass Triumph keine Frage der Größe, sondern der inneren Haltung ist. Gladwells hintersinniges Plädoyer für das Große im Kleinen ist zugleich ein Appell zum kreativen Ungehorsam. Nach der Lektüre dieses verblüffenden Buchs ist kein Riese mehr vor Ihnen sicher.

As We Await the Blessed Hope

Publisher: iUniverse

Release Date: 2015-12-18
Genre: Religion

-Too many books are published today with too little rigor. This is a book that has been rigorously researched and written. In a world that often seems full of the shallow and superficial, it is deep and filled with important insights. It is not for everyone, but those that make the effort will be richly rewarded. Matthew Kelly, New York Times bestselling author of Rediscover Catholicism -Mark Kyriakos has written a book on Bible prophecy that is most unique among Catholic scholars today. It is thoroughly biblical and Catholic. It is both scholarly and approachable to read for a serious student of Scripture. I welcome it as a fresh offering at a time when we usually read treatments of this topic from a predominantly non-Catholic perspective. John Michael Talbot, Founder and Minister General of the Brothers and Sisters of Charity -It’s impossible to understand the whole range of God’s plan – and indeed, the Gospel message itself – without an understanding of the Second Coming and Final Judgment. I am grateful for the immense work that Mark Kyriakos has put into this book and for his effort to make these valuable resources available to a wider audience. Ralph Martin, S.T.D. President, Renewal Ministries

Engaging a New Generation critically examines our commonly held assumptions as well as our often-used models and methodologies initially developed to reach late Baby Boomer and Generation X teens. It then introduces you to the core characteristics of the Millennial Generation teens and the pastoral implications, where the operational and ministerial borders are expanding far beyond traditional youth ministry. "This text fills a great need." -- Bishop Gerald F. Kicanas, Bishop of Tucson "If you want to help young people develop a vibrant, life-transforming faith, read this book!" -- John Roberto, LifelongFaith Associates "Engaging a New Generation is as much about vibrant parish faith as it is about our young people." -- Bishop Timothy Doherty, Lafayette, Indiana "A modern manifesto for reaching young people today." -- Jim Beckman, Director of Youth Evangelization and Leadership, Augustine Institute "Frank Mercadante's passion for the young Church and his commitment to a comprehensive approach to pastoral ministry is evident on every page." -- Bob McCarty, D.Min., Executive Director, National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry "This book comes from deep inside the field of youth ministry. It is theological, sociological, practical, pastoral, and scriptural." -- Dr. Mike Carotta, author, national consultant "This book is the most significant resource I have read, not only for youth ministry but for parish ministry, in the last ten years." --Peter Denio, Standards for Excellence Coordinator, The National Leadership Roundtable on Church Management "Frank Mercadante is in it to win it for today's teens." -- Randy Raus, Life Teen President/CEO "Masterfully and succinctly outlines some of the big shifts that have taken place within culture and the Church." -- Mike Patin, International Catholic Speaker and "Faith Horticulturist" "Whoever wants the next generation of Catholic youth the most will get them. Let Frank Mercadante show you how!" -- Matthew Kelly, New York Times bestselling author of Rediscover Catholicism and founder of Dynamiccatholic.com "We as a Church often hope to reach today's young people with yesterday's approach - and then wonder why they don't respond. This book is a must read." -- Bob Rice, Speaker, Author, Musician, and Professor of Catechetics at Franciscan University of Steubenville "Clearly identifies these cultural shifts and shares important current research on youth and families." -- Jeffrey Kaster, Ed.D, Saint John's University School of Theology and Seminary, Collegeville
