The author presents in this single volume a complete summary of philosophy and its history, specially designed for the student majoring in philosophy or the seminarian who needs philosophical knowledge for his work in theology. The book is keyed to the New Catholic Encyclopedia, Where fuller expositions and bibliographies of the topics treated may be found. The work is divided into three parts, the ﬁrst two being systematic and the third historical. Part I summarizes the basic content of what is called scholastic philosophy: logic, natural philosophy, psychology, metaphysics, epistemology, natural theology, and ethics. Part II surveys the more recent philosophies of the specialized disciplines, i.e., the various humanities and sciences, from language and art to social and political thought. Part III gives a synoptic account of the history of philosophy, from the beginnings of the discipline to its most contemporary developments. The presentation is simple and clear, yet it is accurate and completely authoritative.

On Earth As It Is In Heaven
Josephine Lombardi, one of North America's up-and-coming theologians, has written a practical and inviting book to show how the Lord's Prayer can be a powerful spiritual guide for daily living. Drawing from her own life as a respected theologian, wife and young mother, On Earth as it is in Heaven is full of personal reflections, spiritual meditations and insightful anecdotes. Each section analyzes one line of the Lord's Prayer, followed by reflection questions and a short prayer. The result is a rich resource that nourishes the personal prayer life of adult Christians. This jewel of a book reveals God's relationship to us as being filled with intimacy and trust. Lombardi promotes the Lord's Prayer as a source of restoration and hope for families and society alike.
Catholic Social Teachings & the Church’s Diakonia Ministry
The social teachings of the Catholic Church concern the human person in relation to the Creator as evidenced in her diakonia ministry. But the numerous facets of the Biblical, Theological and Ecclesiological relevance of these teachings remain largely unknown to Catholics in general. That lacuna is what this book admirably fills in. Faith, hope and love being the three cardinal virtues of Christian Theology, the contents of this book reiterate that the ministry of service and charity is one of the core faith-expressions of the Church whose diakonia ministry is a tangible expression of faith in action. Not only every Christian, but also all people of goodwill would be able to draw much inspiration, encouragement and motivation from this book for a consistent commitment to the cause of social justice in response to the changing social ethos and situations across the world.
