Saint Augustine Marriage and Virginity
This volume is to be commended on several points. The translation itself is in eminently readable, clear English that should be accessible to anyone interested in Augustine.... The general introduction does an excellent job of placing these works in the context of Augustine's career, showing how Augustine reacts to controversies with the Manichees, Jovinian, Jerome, and the Pelagians, while maintaining a commitment to the threefold goods of marriage - procreation, fidelity, and sacrament.
The Abbess of Andalusia
Flannery O'Connor has been studied and lauded under many labels: the Southern author whose pen captured the soul of a proud region struggling to emerge out of racism and poverty, the female writer whose independent spirit and tragically short life inspired a generation of women, the catholic artist whose fiction evokes themes of sin and damnation, mercy and redemption
I Believe in Eternal Life
Drawing his inspiration from the last article of the Apostles' Creed ("I believe in eternal life")- Cardinal Martini introduces us in this book to some fundamental themes of Christian faith and hope: life after death, judgment, the resurrection. His reflections are prompted by the fear of death, which is a natural instinct, but which does not have to transform itself into an anguish that paralyzes the heart and mind.
