Popular author and philosopher Peter Kreeft delves into one of the most beloved Christian classics of all time--Augustine's Confessions. He collects key passages and offers incisive commentary, making Confessions accessible to any reader who is both intellectually curious and spiritually hungry. The Confessions is a dramatic personal narrative of a soul choosing between eternal life and death, an exploration of the timeless questions great minds have been asking for millennia, and a prayer of praise and thanksgiving to God. I Burned for Your Peace is not a scholarly work but an unpacking of the riches found in Augustine's text. It is existential, personal, and devotional, as well as warm, witty, and thought-provoking. With Kreeft to guide them, readers of the Confessions can overhear and understand the intimate conversation between a towering intellect and the God whose peace he at last humbly accepts.

World-renown author, Fr. Benedict J. Groeschel, shows how Augustine's influential work is just as relevant today as it was 1,600 years ago. A charming and accessible approach to the master, Augustine combines a variety of translations with Groeschel's own reflections and insight.
The Heart of Holiness shows how our everyday experiences of human friendship teach us the most basic path to holiness of life and union with God. Fr. Lauenstein reviews what Scripture says about holiness, and what the greatest saints have practiced throughout the first two millennia of the Church's history. We learn how important our experiences of human friendship are to our experience of friendship with God, and that holiness is essentially a deep friendship with God. How do we understand "holiness"? How do we articulate the invitation to friendship that God offers us? What role do prayer, devotions, and liturgy have in our spiritual lives and growing in holiness? How do we understand the death of Christ and a loving God the Father? This book helps us to answer these important questions in our journey towards a deeper friendship with God. Understanding the heart of holiness underscores for us the necessity to set aside issues which cause conflicts with others, and how developing a loving friendship with God is directly connected with living in friendship with our brothers and sisters.
Cardinal Burke, former Archbishop of St. Louis, and Prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura, is now the chaplain of the Order of Malta and a great friend of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI. In a thorough and hard-hitting discussion with Guillaume d'Alançon, episcopal delegate for the family and for life issues of a French diocese, he offers his thoughts frankly and without concern for political correctness on the pressing questions of today: the Church, the Liturgy, spiritual renewal, the family, marriage, openness to children and respect for life. Every theme is approached from the perspective of deep Faith, effectively and without polemics. Cardinal Burke, a great canonist, with long pastoral experience, treats with clarity and directness these often difficult subjects. This is a lucid, straight forward and important discussion for the understanding the essential moral and spiritual challenges of today, and the deep roots of the natural law, which is written on our hearts. "Jesus, the Son, is the door situated between the Father and Christian souls. There is no other. Jesus is the door through which the praises and sacrifices of souls ascend to the Father, and through which choice graces and the fruits of the infinite merits of the God-man descend upon the world. Let us turn our attention to the lock of this door, namely the Sacred Heart of Jesus. In order to open the door, we must strive to know the secrets of this divine heart, which has loved mankind so much." - Cardinal Raymond Burke
A Line Through the Human Heart is a book of quiet insight that enables us to look at the reality of this world, for only in this way may we come to see it as something flawed, which we can begin to repair simply by our act of acknowledging what is right, what ought to be, what we want to be-beings whose sins are forgiven.
Juxtaposing "ecumenism" and "jihad", two words that many would consider strange and at odds with each other, Peter Kreeft argues that we need to change our current categories and alignments. We need to realize that we are at war and that the sides have changed radically: many of our former enemies (e.g. Muslims) are now our friends, and some of our former friends (e.g. humanists) are now our enemies. Documenting the spiritual and moral decay that has taken hold of modern society, Kreeft issues a wake-up call to all God-fearing Christian, Jews and Muslims to unite together in a "religious war" against the common enemy of godless secular humanism, materialism and immorality. Aware of the deep theological differences of these monotheistic faiths, Kreeft calls for a moratorium on our polemics against each other so that we can form an alliance to fight together to save western civilization. He cites numerous examples of today's Protestants, Jews, Catholics and Muslims working together to solve moral and spiritual problems. God is calling for this unity, Kreeft says, and if we respond, God will do something wonderful.
