Evelyn Waugh's most celebrated novel is a memory drama about the intense entanglement of the narrator, Charles Ryder, with a great Anglo-Catholic family. Written during World War II, the novel mourns the passing of the aristocratic world Waugh knew in his youth and vividly recalls the sensuous plea-sures denied him by wartime austerities; in so doing it also provides a profound study of the conflict between the demands of religion and the desires of the flesh. At once romantic, sensuous, comic, and somber, "Brideshead Revisited" transcends Waugh's familiar satiric exploration of his cast of lords and ladies, Catholics and eccentrics, artists and misfits, revealing him to be an elegiac, lyrical novelist of the utmost feeling and lucidity. The edition reprinted here contains Waugh's revisions, made in 1959, and his preface to the revised edition. [less]

For every half-dozen heroes antiquity could muster, Christendom produced thousands; and often from the strangest holes and corners. Instead of drying up the spirit of adventure, the Fire of Pentecost kindled it anew and made it burn with an unquenchable flame. The Master's parting instructions to His followers resulted in a host of enterprises quite as daring as any to be found in Homer. Some of these are brought vividly to life in these stories about courageous Christians from the earliest days of Christianity to modern times. Although written primarily for youthful readers, they are sure to interest all those to whom the achievements of their fellow Christians are a matter of pride and encouragement. Here you'll read about, among others: The pagan actor whose mockery of the Faith led him to convert and even die a Christian martyr The blind boy who became an adviser to great saints The brave bishop who successfully defended the true Faith against his fellow bishops and even the Emperor!The monk who was martyred in the Coliseum trying to stop the bloodshed of the gladiators there The priest who suffered cruel deprivations to convert a savage tribe with a dictionary! The Irish monk who crossed the Sea of Darkness to discover America The celebrated Spanish novelist who helped save Christendom from the Turks at the Battle of Lepanto The unarmed bishop who, with words alone, drove Attila the Hun from the gates of Rome The stirring adventures of these brave Christian souls remind us that God has in hand for each of us a unique mission, worthy of all our imagination and of all our daring.

Louis de Wohl As in his other popular novels, Louis de Wohl, with humility and deep religious conviction, takes us into the mind and heart of a saint, giving at the same time an enthralling picture of the era in which he lived. Here is a skillful weaving of the story of St. Ignatius Loyola’s conversion and pilgrimage with the colorful and dangerous history of Spain and Italy in the early sixteenth century. The life of the very human, very great Basque nobleman who founded the Jesuit Order, makes for one of de Wohl’s finest novels. Seriously wounded at the siege of Pamplona in 1521, Don Inigo de Loyola learned that to be a Knight of God was an infinitely greater honor (and infinitely more dangerous) than to be a Knight in the forces of the Emperor. Uli von der Flue, humorous, intelligent and courageous Swiss mercenary, was responsible for the canon shot which incapacitated the worldly and ambitious young nobleman, and Uli became deeply involved in Loyola’s life. With Juanita, disguised as the boy Juan, Uli followed Loyola on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land to protect him, but it was the saint who protected Uli and Juan. Through Uli’s eyes we see the surge and violence of the turbulent period in Jerusalem, Spain and Rome. Louis de Wohl has again created an exciting and spiritually inspiring novel for all readers of historical fiction. Louis de Wohl was a distinguished and internationally acclaimed Catholic novelist whose popular historical novels on saints have been best-sellers worldwide, selling in the millions. Other available titles include Lay Siege to Heaven, Citadel of God, Set All Afire, The Restless Flame, and The Quiet Light. Many of his books were made into films. [less]

As Harry reaches maturity, the battle within his heart grows fierce. Torn between the sensitivities of his soul and the uncompromising king he must become, Harry embarks on an odyssey rife with political agendas, sexual intrigue, and military combat--ultimately transforming into the accomplished monarch a volatile England so urgently demands.

Pieces of Magic Remember when you were a child—when all the world was new, and the smallest object a thing of wonder? Arleta Richardson remembers: the funny wearable wire contraption hidden in the dusty attic, the century-old schoolchild's slate that belonged to Grandma, an ancient trunk filled with quilt pieces—each with its own special story—and the button basket, a miracle of mysteries. And best of all was the remarkable grandmother who made magic of all she touched, [...]

Pieces of Magic Remember when you were a child—when all the world was new, and the smallest object a thing of wonder? Arleta Richardson remembers: the funny wearable wire contraption hidden in the dusty attic, the century-old schoolchild's slate that belonged to Grandma, an ancient trunk filled with quilt pieces—each with its own special story—and the button basket, a miracle of mysteries. And best of all was the remarkable grandmother who made magic of all she touched, bringing the past alive as only a born storyteller could. Here are those marvelous tales—faithfully recalled for the delight of young and old alike, a touchstone to another day when life was simpler, perhaps richer; when the treasures of family life and love were passed from generation to generation by a child's questions...and the legends that followed enlarged our faith. Gifted storyteller Arleta Richardson grew up an only child in Chicago, living in a hotel on the shores of Lake Michigan. Under the care of her maternal grandmother, she listened for hours as her grandmother told stories from her own childhood. With unusual recall, Arleta began to write these stories for an audience that now numbers over 2 million. "My grandmother would be amazed to know her stories have gone around the world," Arleta says.

In the Shade of the Terebinth: Tales of a Night Journey

Casual readers, browsing the pages of this volume, can hardly be blamed for wondering what sort of book it is. IN THE SHADE OF THE TEREBINTH appears to be a collection of short stories. But, that's not quite correct. In fact, it is a novel. A certifiably odd variety of the species, but a novel. Despite its thirteen tales and a cast of a hundred subplots, IN THE SHADE OF THE TEREBINTH tells just one story really: the story of a love which cannot be stopped.

Casual readers, browsing the pages of this volume, can hardly be blamed for wondering what sort of book it is. IN THE SHADE OF THE TEREBINTH appears to be a collection of short stories. But, that's not quite correct. In fact, it is a novel. A certifiably odd variety of the species, but a novel. Despite its thirteen tales and a cast of a hundred subplots, IN THE SHADE OF THE TEREBINTH tells just one story really: the story of a love which cannot be stopped. As for the "night journey" of the subtitle, the reader will recall the mystical journeys of biblical figures, or, for that matter, the tradition of Mohammed's nocturnal ascent through the heavens. But the attentive reader will also be reminded that all true stories are journeys and that all true journeys are occasions for disclosure; that the journey undertaken in darkness - even by way of a book - is often the occasion for the revelation of the greatest of all mysteries: the mystery of identity. Gabriel Meyer was born in Los Angeles in 1947. He studied piano and composition at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston. Converting to Catholicism in 1956, he devoted his energies to various lay apostolates and an inter-denominational Christian community City of the Lord, which he helped found. A resident of Jerusalem for nearly six years, he became the Middle East correspondent for the National Catholic Register in 1986, with a focus on the indigenous churches of that region. Meyer reported extensively on religious and cultural issues in Israel, Turkey, and Egypt. His coverage of the Palestinian uprising, or intifada, won him Catholic Press Association awards in 1989. And in 1991, he won a California Writers Club prize for poetry. Reassigned to Yugoslavia in 1989, Meyer chronicled the religious and ethnic tensions which led to the disintegration of the country and the outbreak of war. He returned to the U.S. in 1991, where he continues to write and edit for the National Catholic Register. [less]

'The army makes a man hard sometimes. I remember a young girl no more than ten who gave me a glass of buttermilk just outside of Chancellorsville. I still remember that. I guess that's all my life is. Some pictures fading out behind me, and there's not much before me.' Reisa listened as he spoke. She knew that he was a man who longed for goodness, and longed for friends, and perhaps even a wife and family. Finally she said, 'I hope you find your way, Ben. God is real, and love is real.' Fleeing a bloody pogrom that threatens their tiny Russian village, Reisa Dimitri and her grandfather, Jacob, sail the ocean to a new life in America. They are swiftly embraced by New York's Jewish community. But God has other plans that will call them far from the familiar warmth and ways of their culture. Accompanied by their huge, gentle friend, Dov, Reisa and Jacob set out to make their living as traveling merchants in the post-Civil-War South. There, as new and unexpected friendships unfold, the aged Jacob searches for answers concerning the nature of the Messiah he has spent a lifetime looking and longing for. And there, the beautiful Reisa finds herself strangely drawn to Ben Driver--a man with a checkered past, a painful present, and a deadly enemy who will stop at nothing to destroy him. Fast-paced and tender by turn, Jacob's Way is a heartwarming novel about human love, divine faithfulness, and the restoration of things that had seemed broken beyond repair. [less]
