Karl Barth’s Church dogmatics: An introduction and reader
This volume is a welcome resource for both teachers and students of Karl Barth's theology.

Godspeed: Racing is my Religion
this book examines the increasing popularity of NASCAR both as a sport and as a business, but more crucially as a religion. Rather than forcing a religious template on the sport, Russell examines the culture of racing, beginning with a tour of the southern racetracks where racing as we know it today was born and finds ample evidence to support his theory that, for many spectators, watching a race really is a religious experience.

in Catholics and the New Age, Fr. Pacwa probes the reasons why many Catholics are dabbling in the new age movement. he shares his firsthand experiences and disillusionment with Jungian psychology, the enneagram, and astrology as a Jesuit seminarian. He also provides invaluable information on new-age fads, including the use of crystals and channeling.
This new book by esteemed father in the faith, Archbishop Donald Cardinal Wuerl, and my friend Mike Aquilina is a wonderful treatment of the great amen of the fathers of the church and the assent of the gathered community of faith within our houses of worship.
