    • A Crisis in Culture

      In this timely and penetrating book, Fr. George Rutler shows how the West's decades-long cultural assault against Christianity is finally reaching its inevitable conclusion: the self-destruction of our culture and society. Fr. Rutler sees the past thirty years as a moral cold war between Christians and those for whom personal behavior is of lesser concern than one s good intentions. He explains how relativism and its consequent dictatorship of feeling spun civilization on its head by denying the relevance and the very existence of God. Indeed, it seeped into the remotest corners of society and, over time, led our entire culture into a full-on rebellion against our Creator. The good news is that Fr. Rutler believes we can emerge from the rubble of civilization, but first there must be a battle between those who are inspired by God and those who are haunted by Him. This deadly winter which has already begun descending will be followed by the peace and joy of spring, but only if we turn our hearts to the Lamb of God. In these fascinating pages, you'll also learn:

      • Why the Catholic Faith is the only means by which civilization can be restored
      • Why the twentieth century saw more martyrs than all previous Christian centuries combined
      • What happens when we let the government, rather than the Church, become our Mother
      • Why, after so much slow disintegration, we are still waiting for true renewal in the Church

    • The Next Pope: The Leading Cardinal Candidates

      When Pope Francis' pontificate has passed, it's very likely that one of the nineteen cardinals featured in these pages will be elected to become the next Supreme Pontiff of the Catholic Church, the spiritual leader of over a billion Catholics and the most influential and widely respected moral and religious figure in the world. Yet outside the Vatican walls, despite the considerable roles that some of these men play in the Church and in the world, few of them are known by the public or even by their brother cardinals. Hence this book, an engrossing and thoroughly documented instrument through which a future pope may be known in that sphere that matters most: his life and service, first as a priest, and then as a bishop. Written by the National Catholic Register's longtime Rome correspondent, Edward Pentin, in collaboration with an international team of qualified scholars, these encyclopaedic pages present you with the fruit of years of research. Each cardinal profile begins with a brief biography that sketches the major points of his ecclesiastical life. Then comes a detailed, richly footnoted report and assessment of his three fundamental roles as a successor to the apostles: his sanctifying role as a priest, his governing role as a bishop, and his prophetic role as a teacher. As an important bonus, these pages also carefully document many of the candidates' published views on moral and theological issues currently debated in the Church and in the public arena, as such views often reveal most efficiently the individual s true character and deepest held beliefs. Finally, each profile concludes with a summary, recapitulating the main points brought to light by the thorough research, giving readers and tomorrow's cardinal electors a fair and accurate picture of the man who may soon become The Next Pope.

    • A Church in Crisis: Pathways Forward

      Nearly forty years ago, Ralph Martin's bestselling A Crisis of Truth exposed the damaging trends in Catholic teaching and preaching that, combined with attacks from secular society, threatened the mission and life of the Catholic Church. While much has been done to counter false teaching over the last four decades, today the Church faces even more insidious threats from outside and within. In A Church in Crisis: Pathways Forward, Martin offers a detailed look at the growing hostility to the Catholic Church and its teaching. With copious evidence, Martin uncovers the forces working to undermine the Body of Christ and offers hope to those looking for clarity. A Church in Crisis covers:

      • polarization in the Church caused by ambiguous teachings
      • initiatives that accommodate the culture without calling for conversion
      • Vatican-sponsored partnerships with organizations that actively contradict the teaching of the Catholic Church
      • and the recycling of theological errors long settled by Vatican II, Pope St. John Paul II, and Pope Benedict XVI.
      Powerfully written, A Church in Crisis reminds all readers to heed Jesus' express command not to lead His children astray. With ample resources to encourage readers, Ralph Martin provides the solid foundation of Catholic teaching both Scripture and Tradition to fortify Catholics against the errors that threaten us from all directions.

    • Will Many Be Saved?: What Vatican II Actually Teaches and Its Implications for the New Evangelization

      The question of whether and how people who have not had the chance to hear the gospel can be saved goes back to the beginnings of Christian reflection. It has also become a much-debated topic in current theology. In Will Many Be Saved? Ralph Martin focuses primarily on the history of debate and the development of responses to this question within the Roman Catholic Church, but much of Martin's discussion is also relevant to the wider debate happening in many churches around the world. In particular, Martin analyzes the Dogmatic Constitution on the Church, the document from the Second Vatican Council that directly relates to this question. Contrary to popular opinion, Martin argues that according to this text, the conditions under which people who have not heard the gospel can be saved are very often, in fact, not fulfilled, with strong implications for evangelization.
