Dear Friends,

Welcome to our spring 2013 catalog! As usual, our new titles cover a wide variety of topics and concerns, yet common to them all is a strong underlying emphasis on hope: hope in the resilience of the liturgical and theological traditions of the church; hope in the actions of and conversations between people “of good will” to overcome the ambiguities and tragedies we inflict on one another; hope in our dialogue and relations with other faith traditions and the cultures we live in; and—most essentially— hope in the bond we each have with the infinite mystery that ever beckons and moves our being. I am often encouraged by the adage attributed to Clement of Alexandria: “If you do not hope, you will not find what is beyond your hopes.” To “hope beyond our hopes” offers to take us beyond the sentimental, the grandiose, and possibly even the vengeful to the patient solidarity of finding and keeping hope alive for those who have begun to lose hope, whether in church or in society, and of sympathizing with and praying for those who right now are looking with despair into chasms invisible to others. It is our ongoing aim to be a partner with you in publishing for a richly diverse church and serving its transcendent hopes and changing needs—and to do so rooted in the teachings of the councils as well as in the lived experience of our ancient Benedictine tradition. May all your reading be hopeful. Cistercian Publications titles throughout this catalog will be billed and shipped separately from Liturgical Press titles. Liturgical Press was founded by the Benedictines of Saint John’s Abbey——in 1926.

Hope Sings, So Beautiful

Graced Encounters across the Color Line Christopher Pramuk Foreword by M. Shawn Copeland Afterword by Edward Kaplan Award-winning author Christopher Pramuk offers a mosaic of images and sketches for thinking and praying through difficult questions about race. Pramuk approaches his subject from various angles, drawing on theological and musical sources as varied as Merton and Hillesum, Wonder and Holiday. This richly illustrated book is not primarily sociological or ethnographic in approach. Rather, its horizon is shaped by questions of theology, spirituality, and pastoral practice. Pramuk’s challenging work on this difficult topic will stimulate fruitful conversations and fresh thinking, whether in private study or prayer; in classrooms, churches, and reading groups; or among friends and family around the dinner table. “Pramuk creatively interweaves music, scholarship, art, the natural world, theology, personal experience, spiritual writings, and much more to examine discipleship in a racist and fractured world. But above all he unveils the everyday mystery of divine love that beckons us to new life and a new way forward.” Timothy Matovina University of Notre Dame Author of Latino Catholicism “Seldom does an author share his soul. Not just his life and experience, but the people and events that inspire him; the art, the music and the encounters that feed his imagination; the passion that drives him. That is what Chris Pramuk does in Hope Sings, So Beautiful. It is spiritual theology at its most satisfying. If you want uplift and are not afraid to be turned upside down and inside out, this is the book for you.” Drew Christiansen, SJ Former editor of America Visiting scholar, Boston College

Christopher Pramuk is associate professor of theology at Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio. He is the author of Sophia: The Hidden Christ of Thomas Merton (Liturgical Press, 2009) and the recipient of the Catholic Theological Society of America’s 2009 Catherine Mowry LaCugna Award, the International Thomas Merton Society’s 2011 Thomas Merton Award, and several Catholic Press Association awards for his articles and essays.

“Hope Sings, So Beautiful dares to interrupt readers, inviting them to reflect more deeply still on systemic racism’s dehumanization of us all. Pramuk writes with eloquence, integrity, and urgency.” Kimberly Vrudny University of St. Thomas “Pramuk does not present a simplistic diagnosis of race problems, but an ‘alternate horizon’—painful, partial, mysterious, but nonetheless resonant with music. To those who help us see, we owe the deepest reverence; this author is one.” Kathy Coffey Author of The Best of Being Catholic

The Word Made Love

The Dialogical Theology of Joseph Ratzinger / Benedict XVI Christopher S. Collins, SJ From scholarly monographs to papal homilies, Joseph Ratzinger has insisted consistently over decades that Christianity is not a set of ideas to believe or, even less, moral laws to follow. Rather, Christianity is about a person and our encounter with that person. For Ratzinger, dialogue is the basic structure of all reality, and the Christian vision articulates the radical transformation that happens when we enter into this divine dialogue. Collins argues that this dialogical, communicative structure is a distinctive aspect of Ratzinger’s thought and a unique contribution to the renewal of theology in our day.

Christopher S. Collins, SJ, is assistant professor of theology at Saint Louis University. He is a former parish priest on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, as well as a high school instructor at both Brophy College Preparatory in Phoenix, Arizona, and Jesuit College Preparatory in Dallas, Texas.

“Fr. Christopher Collins has written a book which is both informative for the general reader and a useful bibliographical source for the student. There is a certain ‘freshness’ in the tone and a pleasing humility in the presentation. This book is certainly a significant addition to the commentaries on Joseph Ratzinger’s work.” Gill Goulding, CJ University of Toronto “Among the vast array of commentary and interpretation concerned with the theology of Joseph Ratzinger/ Benedict XVI, this book stands out in its illuminating presentation of central aspects of Benedict’s theological vision. [The Word Made Love] will serve as an excellent guide to both the letter and the spirit of Benedict’s theology.” Khaled Anatolios Boston College School of Theology and Ministry Author of Retrieving Nicaea

“Eloquently and peaceably, with a rare combination of scholarly and spiritual discipline, Christopher Collins guides us into the very marrow of Joseph Ratzinger’s theology. Like an icon, this book draws us into the encounter to which Ratzinger bears witness. A stunning achievement.” Matthew Levering University of Dayton “Fr. Christopher Collins, with theological acumen and pastoral sensitivity, provides a robustly Christ-centered reading of the writings of Joseph Ratzinger/Pope Benedict XVI. This is an admirable introduction to the universal scope of the pope’s theological vision.” Robert Imbelli Boston College “I have been captured by the beauty of The Word Made Love. By illuminating the dialogical theology of Pope Benedict XVI, this masterful work brings the reader face to face with Jesus’ living presence and the truth hidden ‘for me’ in the scandal of particularity. Thank you, Fr. Collins!” Fr. John Horn, SJ President-Rector Kenrick-Glennon Seminary

Secular Music and Sacred Theology Edited by Tom Beaudoin

When the basic conceptions of the world held by whole generations in the West are formed by popular culture, and in particular by the music that serves as its soundtrack, can theology remain unchanged? The authors of the essays in this important volume insist that the answer is no. These gifted theologians help readers make sense of what happens to religious experience in a world heavily influenced by popular media culture, a world in which songs, musicians, and celebrities influence our individual and collective imaginations about how we might live. Readers will consider the theological relationship between music and the creative process, investigate ways that music helps create communities of heightened moral consciousness, and explore the theological significance of songs. Contributors to this fascinating collection are: David Dault Maeve Heaney Daniel White Hodge Michael J. Iafrate Jeffrey F. Keuss Mary McDonough Gina Messina-Dysert Christian Scharen Myles Werntz “Scholars finally have a book that seriously engages theology and popular music through a variety of methodologies and musical genres. This is a must read for scholars of religion and popular culture and has definite classroom appeal. Secular Music and Sacred Theology teaches us that everyday popular music is an entry point into discussions of the serious contemporary theological issues.” Michelle A. Gonzalez University of Miami Author of Shopping: Christian Explorations of Daily Living

Tom Beaudoin is associate professor of theology at Fordham University, specializing in practical theology. His books include Witness to Dispossession: The Vocation of a Postmodern Theologian; Consuming Faith: Integrating Who We Are with What We Buy; and Virtual Faith: The Irreverent Spiritual Faith of Generation X.

Treasure in the Field

Salvation in the Bible and in Our Lives Robert A. Krieg What does it mean to say that God offers salvation to humanity? What is this salvation, and how can we become more conscious of it in our lives? These are the questions that Robert Krieg faces in Treasure in the Field. While his intent is certainly to impart information and ideas found in Scripture, church teaching, and theology, it is also to illumine our own experiences. “Robert Krieg’s approach to soteriology is symphonic, like a conductor uncovering the hidden melodies of Scripture and Tradition, and drawing intuitively from contemporary voices and narratives in a way that quickens the life of intellect and faith. Drawing us gently back to the God who loves and treasures all people without exception, Treasure in the Field is a summons to life and hope for a world-weary people. It is a book I will treasure both in and beyond the classroom.” Christopher Pramuk Xavier University Author of Hope Sings, So Beautiful: Graced Encounters across the Color Line Robert A. Krieg is professor of theology at the University of Notre Dame. He is the editor and translator of Romano Guardini: Spiritual Writings, as well as the author of Romano Guardini: A Precursor of Vatican II; Karl Adam: Catholicism in German Culture; and Story-Shaped Christology.

Foundations of Spirituality The Human and the Holy A Systematic Approach Carla Mae Streeter, OP

How does the Holy come to meet the human? Or, said another way, how does God work with the physical, psychic, and spiritual persons that each of us are? Scholarly approaches to spirituality often overlook the need for a sound anthropology as the base for explaining conversion, the dynamic of grace, and the effects of conversion in virtue theory. In Foundations of Spirituality, longtime educator Carla Mae Streeter provides a more adequate account of what it means to be a person before God. By mining the insights of Bernard Lonergan on human consciousness and the virtue theory of Thomas Aquinas, she presents a clear and integrated incarnational spirituality. “Foundations of Spirituality brings striking new insights about the relationship of the human with the divine.” Ruthanne Reed, OP Director of Associate Relationship Racine Dominicans, Racine, WI Carla Mae Streeter, OP, is professor emerita at the Aquinas Institute of Theology in St. Louis, Missouri, where she continues to teach in the areas of systematic theology and spirituality.

When the Gospel Grows Feet Rutilio Grande, SJ, and the Church of El Salvador An Ecclesiology in Context Thomas M. Kelly

The Salvadoran priest Rutilio Grande, SJ, was killed in a hail of bullets on March 12, 1977, along with two passengers in the car he drove. The impact of this killing transformed his friend and archbishop, Oscar Romero, as well as the church in Latin America and throughout the world. How could powerful forces within the overwhelmingly Catholic country of El Salvador execute a Roman Catholic priest and two innocent people in broad daylight in front of witnesses? Why would this same government go to the extreme of murdering thousands of lay Catholic ministers, dozens of priests, and even the nation’s archbishop? Why would the government, and the oligarchy that supported it, believe it necessary to repress the church in such a brutal manner? Thomas Kelly finds answers to these questions by exploring the church’s identity and mission during the colonial period (1500–1820) and the transformative impact of Vatican II (1962–65) on the Latin American bishops. He considers Grande’s life, formation, ministry, and death and his impact on Archbishop Romero. Finally, Kelly explains what Grande and the church of El Salvador can teach North American Catholics today. “Catholic theology walks the dusty roads of history, the same roads where Jesus walked and his first followers first met him. At its most elemental, Catholic theology is biography. Just so, the life of Rutilio Grande, beautifully narrated and interpreted in these pages by Professor Thomas Kelly, is more than a life: it is a dogmatic theology that shows us where and how the Gospel grows feet.” Kevin F. Burke, SJ Jesuit School of Theology of Santa Clara University | 1-800-858-5450

Thomas M. Kelly is associate professor of theology at Creighton University. He is the author of Theology at the Void: The Retrieval of Experience and coeditor of Marriage and the Catholic Tradition.

“This book is a ‘must read’ for those who want to understand how the church entered into the lives of its people in El Salvador after Vatican II and Medellín through the ministry of Rutilio Grande, SJ. When you begin with Rutilio, his life, his ministry, and his death, then you can understand the period of suffering endured by the prophetic church of El Salvador.” Jon Sobrino Author of Jesus the Liberator and Witnesses to the Kingdom

Sharing Peace brings together leading Mennonite and Catholic theologians and ecclesial leaders to reflect on the recent, first-ever international dialogue between the Mennonite World Conference and the Vatican. The search for a shared reading of history, theology of the church and its sacraments or ordinances, and understandings of Christ’s call to be peacemakers are its most prominent themes. Contributors include: • Scott Appleby • Alan Kreider • Helmut Harder • Drew Christiansen, SJ • John Roth • John Cavadini • C. Arnold Snyder • Mary Doak) • Elizabeth Groppe • Thomas Finger • Bishop Gabino Zavala • Duane Friesen • Gerald Schlabach • Mary Schertz • Abbot John Klassen, OSB This volume includes the full text of two important ecumenical documents— “Called Together to Be Peacemakers” and “Mennonite and Catholic Contribution to the World Council of Churches’ Decade to Overcome Violence”—that are the fruit of recent Catholic-Mennonite dialogue.

The Mennonite challenge to Catholicism is the sober, shrewd, and historically rooted Anabaptist witness against the state and warnings about Christian entanglements with the state. This has been the Mennonite witness, the Anabaptist witness. And there is a deep irony in the recognition that the seasoned, experienced, and alternately world-embracing and world-judging Roman Catholic Church has often failed to learn the right Christian lessons from that experience; at times, the church has remained (willfully?) naïve about, or not fully repentant of, the consequences of compromising Gospel purity in the name of political stewardship. Mennonites and others remind Catholics of the more dubious consequences of their way of witnessing to the state through positive engagement.

Where Justice and Mercy Meet: Catholic Opposition to the Death Penalty explores the Catholic stance against capital punishment in new and important ways. The broad perspective of this book has been shaped in conversation with the Catholic Mobilizing Network to End the Use of the Death Penalty, as well as by the witness of family members of murder victims and the spiritual advisors of condemned inmates. Written for concerned Catholics and interested readers, the book contains contemporary stories and examples as well as engaging discussion questions.

“Abolition of the death penalty deserves the same support as abolition of slavery. Not only Catholics but the general public increasingly believes that innocent people are executed because the criminal justice system is patently unfair for a host of reasons and is not needed for public safety. Where Justice and Mercy Meet: Catholic Opposition to the Death Penalty is a treasure trove of information on the necessity and urgency to abolish an antiquated approach to capital crimes.” Archbishop Joseph A. Fiorenza Archbishop Emeritus of Galveston-Houston “Where Justice and Mercy Meet combines solid moral reflections on the death penalty with captivating stories of people caught up in this system. Both deeply interesting and educational, this book should reach a wide diversity of readers.” Richard C. Dieter Executive Director Death Penalty Information Center Washington, DC

Memory and Honor Cultural and Generational Ministry with Korean American Communities Simon C. Kim

Memory and Honor is a theological reflection on the American experience of the people of Korean descent. It is a reflection on the heritage of rupture, displacement, and resettlement as the key to identity and hope for those continuing to live in between the cultures, languages, and belief systems of Korea and the United States. This book gives voice to the first generation of immigrants and their children. Since the majority of Korean immigrants are Protestants, the first- and second-generation Catholic community is a minority of minorities, an ethnic minority as well as a religious minority. Thus, as a minority group and as a minority of minorities, Korean American Catholics may have more to contribute to church and society since this country was founded, developed, and maintained by immigrants such as these. Readers will come away with a deeper appreciation of the Korean immigrant contribution and more readily see the Korean American Catholic community as an authentic expression of church.

Simon Kim is assistant professor of theology at Our Lady of Holy Cross College in New Orleans, LA. He earned a PhD in theology from The Catholic University of America in 2011, specializing in theology in cross-cultural contexts. He works extensively with Korean American communities and offers conferences, workshops, and retreats across the country on Korean American pastoral ministry.

“Memory and Honor breaks significant ground in inviting us to reflect with Koreans of all generations on their heritage, their lived experience in this country, how they have been received by society and the Church, and their struggles, dreams and contributions. Fr. Kim brings to this work a method for reflecting theologically on the journey of Korean American communities, for understanding their pastoral challenges, and for identifying ways to minister to them.” Most Rev. Randolph R. Calvo Bishop of Reno Chair, USCCB Subcommittee on Asian and Pacific Island Affairs | 1-800-858-5450

“Fr. Kim makes an important and timely contribution for deepening our own self-understanding as the people of Korean decent in the context of church and society. This provides a forum for the beginning of a meaningful dialogue on how we can share our ‘authentic expression of church’ with the rest of the society. This is a ‘must read’ in understanding our Korean American development as well as our Catholic heritage.” Rev. Alex K. Kim President, Korean American Priests Association “As the first book focusing on Korean American Catholic communities, this book significantly contributes to Korean American studies and to theological and social science studies of immigrants’ religious practices in the U.S.” Pyong Gap Min Distinguished Professor of Sociology Director of The Research Center for Korean Community Queens College and the Graduate Center The City University of New York

A modern classic of liturgical and pastoral theology, now revised and annotated by one of today’s top liturgical scholars! When Adrien Nocent’s The Liturgical Year was published in 1975, it was the very first comprehensive commentary on the three-year lectionary in relation to the Sacramentary/Missal as these were revised following the Second Vatican Council. Expressed on nearly every page was Nocent’s conviction that the liturgy and the Word of God proclaimed within it have something important to say to real people of every culture and time. He constantly returns to the question: What does this passage have to say to us today? Adrien Nocent, OSB, (1913–1996) was a Belgian monk and professor at the Pontifical Atheneum of Saint Anselm in Rome. He served as a consultor for the Consilium for the Implementation of the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy of the Second Vatican Council, working especially on the revision of Holy Week and of the Lectionary for Mass.

Now this extraordinary work of applied, postconciliar liturgical scholarship has been revised and annotated by one of today’s top liturgical scholars. Paul Turner has provided many helpful explanatory notes on history, culture, language, and, of course, liturgy. The result is a resource that promises to enrich and inspire a new generation of presiders, preachers, liturgy planners, and students. Paul Turner is pastor of St. Anthony Parish in Kansas City, Missouri. He is the author of many books on liturgy, including Let Us Pray: A Guide to the Rubrics of Sunday Mass; Glory in the Cross: Holy Week in the Third Edition of The Roman Missal; and When Other Christians Become Catholic, all from Liturgical Press. He is a former president of the North American Academy of Liturgy and is a member of Societas Liturgica and the Catholic Academy of Liturgy. He serves as a facilitator for the International Commission on English in the Liturgy.

The Prayers of the New Missal A Homiletic and Catechetical Companion Anscar J. Chupungco, OSB

Anscar J. Chupungco, OSB, who passed away earlier this year, was a member of the Abbey of Our Lady of Montserrat in the Philippines. He was president of the Pontifical Liturgical Institute in Rome and is currently director of Paul VI Institute of Liturgy in the Philippines. In 2011, the Federation of Diocesan Liturgical Commissions presented to him The Frederick R. McManus Award for his contribution to pastoral liturgy. He authored many books, including What, Then, Is Liturgy? Musings and Memoir (Liturgical Press, 2010).

After the publication of The Roman Missal, Third Edition, much attention was given to the catechesis of the clergy and the faithful on the Order of Mass, which contains the chief theological and spiritual elements of the eucharistic celebration. In The Prayers of the New Missal, Anscar J. Chupungco expands the reader’s focus to the other parts of the Mass—namely, the orations or the Collect, Prayer over the Offerings, Prayer after Communion, and Prayer over the People. He demonstrates that these element, too are a rich source of doctrine and spirituality waiting to be shared with others through homily and catechesis. Preachers and catechists will especially appreciate Father Chupungco’s recommendations for approaching the difficult and sometimes vexing structure and vocabulary of the new Missal. He offers helpful exercises for analyzing the Latin texts, comparing the original and the English versions, and crafting provisional literal translations that will aid in easier comprehension. Finally, he concludes with an ample sampling of homiletic and catechetical notes that will serve as a rich source of nourishment for preaching and catechesis.

“It is my hope that this small volume will be a companion to priests and faithful alike as they journey in liturgical worship along the (as yet) unfamiliar terrain of the new English translation. This volume aims to assist clergy and faithful to develop a deeper appreciation of the church’s venerable corpus of liturgical orations and to offer a possible method of interpreting them.” h From the Introduction

There Were Also Many Women There

Lay Women in the Liturgical Movement in the United States, 1926–59 Katharine E. Harmon Foreword by Nathan D. Mitchell Where are the women in liturgical history? In considering the influential liturgical movement in the United States during the first half of the twentieth century, Katharine E. Harmon reveals that the reality is analogous to Matthew’s account of the crucifixion of Jesus: “there were also many women there” (Matt 27:55). In this groundbreaking study, Harmon considers women’s involvement in the movement. Here, readers explore the contributions of Maisie Ward, Dorothy Day, Catherine de Hueck Doherty, Ade Bethune, Therese Mueller, and many others. Harmon shows how movements and institutions such as progressivism, Catholic women’s organizations, Catholic Action, the American Grail Movement, and daily Catholic family life played a prominent role in the liturgical renewal. The historical record is clear that women were there, they ministered to the Mystical Body, and their important work must be recognized. “Harmon’s book is a magnificent and much-needed addition to our growing knowledge of women as subjects of liturgy’s past, not only as worshipers, but also as creative agents of liturgical renewal in their own right. Building on sustained archival research, Harmon is able to bring to light much-needed information about the leading women in the liturgical movement in North America.  I highly recommend this book.” Teresa Berger Yale Institute of Sacred Music & Yale Divinity School | 1-800-858-5450

Katharine E. Harmon currently serves as a lecturer in liturgical studies at The Catholic University of America. She holds a doctorate in theology from the University of Notre Dame and is a member of the North American Academy of Liturgy.

“Katharine Harmon has given us an impressively researched book that allows us to look deeply into the lives of a host of forward-thinking women whose vision for renewed social order drew its inspiration from the liturgy. These women make plain that what happened fifty years ago at Vatican II was no mere liturgical fad but decades in the making. What has liturgy to do with life? Everything—and Harmon’s work demonstrates the significant contribution that these courageous women made to understanding that.” Michael Woods, SJ Gregorian University Author of Cultivating Soil and Soul: TwentiethCentury Catholic Agrarians Embrace the Liturgical Movement

Toward a Trinitarian Theology of Liturgical Participation R. Gabriel Pivarnik, OP Foreword by Kevin W. Irwin

Gabriel Pivarnik, OP, teaches theology at Providence College, where he also serves as director of the Center for Catholic and Dominican Studies.

25C 978-0-8146-6285-4 Paperback, 280 pp., 6 x 9, $39.95 25C 978-0-8146-6260-1 e eBook, $35.99

Half a century after the Second Vatican Council called for the active participation of the laity in the liturgy, a comprehensive theology of what liturgical participation actually means remains elusive. While most sacramental studies have highlighted the role and action of Christ, the conciliar reform and the theology that emanated from it call for a deeper trinitarian understanding of the liturgy and sacraments. In this fascinating new work, Gabriel Pivarnik identifies the major theological developments in the concept of active participation of the last century, most notably in Mediator Dei and the Vatican II documents. He also considers the reception of those developments. Drawing especially on the work of Cipriano Vagaggini and Edward Kilmartin, Pivarnik offers a lucid demonstration of how liturgical participation can be viewed in metaphysical, soteriological, and ecclesiological terms through the lens of a trinitarian narrative. “In this work Fr. Pivarnik launches into the deeper trinitarian meaning of Vatican II’s assertion that ‘full, conscious, and active participation . . . is demanded by the very nature of the liturgy.’ The result is as penetrating in its insight as its scholarship is exhaustive and up-to-date. Singling out the writings of two major twentiethcentury liturgical theologians, Cipriano Vagaggini and Edward Kilmartin, Pivarnik provides rich and comprehensive syntheses of both. A scholarly tour de force, this book is indispensable for any doctoral course on the subject and a valuable resource for teachers of liturgy at any level.” John D. Laurance, SJ Marquette University Author of The Sacrament of the Eucharist

Word and Image The Hermeneutics of The Saint John’s Bible Michael Patella, OSB

In Word and Image, Michael Patella explores the principles, intentions, and aims of The Saint John’s Bible—the first handwritten and hand-illuminated Bible commissioned by a Benedictine abbey since the invention of the printing press. Patella focuses not on how it was made but on how it can be read, viewed, and interpreted in a way that respects biblical inspiration and Christian tradition in our postmodern context. In addition, Benjamin C. Tilghman contributes a chapter on the tradition of medieval Bibles. This is a book that is sure to appeal to academics, pastors, teachers, and educated laypersons. Patella considers this Bible in the context of the great Christian tradition of illuminated Bibles across the ages and also the fascinating ways The Saint John’s Bible reflects third-millennium concerns. He seeks to rekindle interest in sacred art by allowing The Saint John’s Bible to teach its readers and viewers how to work with text and image. As an accomplished Scripture scholar, a highly regarded teacher, a monk of Saint John’s Abbey, and the chair of the Committee on Illumination and Text that provided the vision to the artists who created The Saint John’s Bible, Patella may be the only one who could write this book with such insight, expertise, and love.

The Sermon on the Mount The Perfect Measure of the Christian Life Frank J. Matera

Frank J. Matera was for many years the Andrews-Kelly-Ryan Professor of Biblical Studies at The Catholic University of America. A former president of the Catholic Biblical Association of America, he is presently the pastor of St. Mary’s Church in Simsbury, Connecticut. He has published commentaries on Romans, Second Corinthians, and Galatians and written books on New Testament theology, New Testament Christology, New Testament ethics, and Pauline theology. Matera’s previous works published by Liturgical Press include Galatians in the Sacra Pagina series, Strategies for Preaching Paul, and Preaching Romans: Proclaiming God’s Saving Grace.

“Fr. Frank Matera’s The Sermon on the Mount is the fruit of a life’s work of pastoral ministry and the highest level of biblical scholarship. It is simple and accessible, but scholars will recognize its author as a guide who has command of the exegetical issues and yet distills that expertise for a general audience. Readers of all backgrounds will profit immeasurably from this book.” William Mattison The Catholic University of America

Saint Augustine once described the Sermon on the Mount as “the perfect measure of the Christian life.” Taking his cue from Augustine, Father Frank Matera provides an exposition of the sermon for contemporary readers who wish to use the sermon as the standard by which they live their lives every day. Matera shows how the Sermon on the Mount summons believers to single-minded devotion and wholehearted service to God. He unfolds the historical and theological background to the sermon. He explores the meaning of the individual Beatitudes, which articulate Jesus’ call for a more abundant righteousness, piety without hypocrisy, and the need to become “doers” of the Word. This lively and engaging commentary is an ideal resource for adult education and Bible study groups. It is also ideal for all who want to live their discipleship more fully. “The centrality of the Sermon on the Mount for Christian faith is undeniable. With his classic clarity and succinct style, Frank Matera captures ‘the perfect measure’ of the Sermon that has inspired Christians throughout the ages to follow Jesus Christ. In this deceptively small book, Matera offers an impressive interpretation of Jesus’ teaching that is attentive to both ethical and spiritual dimensions of the text. This book can serve very well in classroom settings, Bible study groups, or simply for personal spiritual enrichment. I highly recommend it.” Ronald D. Witherup, SS Superior General of the Society of Saint Sulpice in Paris, France

Maverick Mark

The Untamed First Gospel Bonnie B. Thurston Somewhere along the way, says Bonnie Thurston, the wild unlikelihood of the Christian message has been reined in and made to fit more conventional categories of thought. That it is good and moral to be Christian we understand. That it is feral and almost uncontrollably countercultural is something that has been largely forgotten or suppressed. This taming has been especially effective in the case of the first gospel. In Maverick Mark, Thurston sets out to rediscover the radicalism of Mark’s original message. Thurston focuses on Mark’s conception of discipleship, economic justice, and personal lifestyle. She demonstrates that this gospel raises fundamental questions about some common contemporary Christian assumptions. This is an accessible introduction to Mark, ideal for interested adult readers of all kinds, which incorporates the most reliable and up-to-date Scripture scholarship. “Maverick Mark is intentionally—and prophetically—challenging to think about, but it is also quite delightful to read. As one who has also experienced appreciation for this dynamic, even subversive, Gospel, I am grateful for Thurston’s powerful communication of these insights to a broad audience in a moving and memorable way.” Elizabeth Struthers Malbon Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) Author of Mark’s Jesus and Hearing Mark “In Maverick Mark, the reader encounters not only a tightly focused but a downright urgent guide through the shortest gospel text. This is a book that can be given a first reading in a few hours but one its readers will not quickly forget.” Jim Forest Author of All Is Grace: A Biography of Dorothy Day | 1-800-858-5450

Bonnie B. Thurston, after years as a university and seminary professor, lives quietly in her home state of West Virginia. She is the author of many books of Scripture and theology, including The Spiritual Landscape of Mark and Philippians in the Sacra Pagina series. Her poetry appears frequently in religious periodicals and among her published collections is Belonging to Borders: A Sojourn in the Celtic Tradition.

Pleading, Cursing, Praising Conversing with God through the Psalms Irene Nowell, OSB

Irene Nowell’s work would be both impressive and important if she were “only” a masterful Scripture scholar or a gifted spiritual guide or a compelling teacher. The fact that she is all three makes her an extraordinary resource for Christians today. In Pleading, Cursing, Praising, Nowell puts all of these gifts to use to offer a guide to praying with the psalms. Nowell maintains that the psalms teach us to tell our story, to cry out our pain, and to give praise to God. They also teach us to listen—to the voice of God, the voice of Christ, the voices of the people around us, and the voice of all creation. This book includes questions and exercises for personal reflection, brief prayers for praying along the way, and suggestions for composing one’s own psalm-prayers. It promises to enrich the spiritual life of everyone who reads it.

Irene Nowell, OSB, is a member of the Benedictine community of Mount Saint Scholastica in Atchison, Kansas. She served on the translation team of the revised Old Testament of the New American Bible and the Committee on Illuminations and Texts for The Saint John’s Bible. Nowell is a past president of the Catholic Biblical Association. She is the author of Numbers (of the New Collegeville Bible Commentary), Sing a New Song: The Psalms in the Sunday Lectionary, and Women in the Old Testament, all published by Liturgical Press.

“No one knows the psalms better than Irene Nowell. She knows them under the microscope as a scholar, but more importantly she knows them as a friend with whom she has been getting together every day for years. Her anecdotes and examples light up even the cursing psalms.” Abbot Jerome Kodell Subiaco Abbey Author of The Catholic Bible Study Handbook | 1-800-858-5450

“Nowell’s lifelong love of the psalms and her scholarly work in interpreting and translating them provides grounding for understanding the Psalter’s character, structure, history, theology, and function. Readers become more aware of the bonds that connect all— humans and all nature—in community. This book will be a fine companion for any who wish to learn the psalms.” Shawn Carruth, OSB Concordia College

The Lady of the Angels and Her City A Marian Pilgrimage Wendy M. Wright

Wendy M. Wright is professor of theology at Creighton University. She is the author of many books, including The Essential Spirituality Handbook; Heart Speaks to Heart: The Salesian Tradition; and Sacred Heart: Gateway to God.

The Lady of the Angels and Her City recounts Wendy Wright’s visitations to her hometown’s many Marian churches and shrines. But it is much more than a personal pilgrimage narrative. It offers important glimpses into the history of Los Angeles Catholicism, American Catholic culture, and Mary’s place in Catholic theology and tradition. It peeks into the heroic labors of the religious orders that went on mission there and the waves of immigrants who have arrived on American shores. Readers who know the geography of Los Angeles Catholicism will surely enjoy Wright’s reflection on familiar places. But there is much here that will fascinate anyone interested in either the history of Christianity in America or devotion to Mary by those who love her today.

“This book is a major contribution to the place of Mary in contemporary Catholic spirituality. Readers who love Mary, those who are fascinated by southern California, or those who seek to understand why the figure of the Virgin continues to compel will all find in this poignant and elegantly written text things to inform and delight.” Rev. Dorian Llywelyn, SJ Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles “Wendy M. Wright writes like no one else in the field of spirituality today. Travel with her on this fascinating Marian pilgrimage, and you will discover worlds that extend far beyond Mary and Los Angeles—and ultimately, you will be brought home to yourself.” Fr. Edward L. Beck CBS News Faith and Religion Contributor and author of God Underneath “These pages take us into the very heart of Mary and the marvelous City of Angels. This book is a treasure for pilgrims or anyone who wants to become one.” Jeanne Hunt Author of Celebrating Saints and Seasons

“Nobody brings together popular piety and serious theological reflection better than Wendy Wright. The heart and the intellect can go together. This book is proof!” Fr. Ronald Rolheiser Oblate School of Theology Author of Our One Great Act of Fidelity “Here is a pearl of contemplative wisdom formed from layers of insight, discernment, friendship, expansive maternal sensibility, and the author’s own ‘soul moments.’ It is a treasure of art, local history, and multicultural experience, perceptive theology, and awareness of how images of Mary could reinforce both women’s oppression and freedom.” Joann Wolski Conn Neumann University professor emerita Past President, Society for the Study of Christian Spirituality

The Girl Got up

A Cruciform Memoir Rachel M. Srubas “And immediately the girl got up and began to walk about . . . At this they were overcome with amazement.” (Mark 5:42) The Girl Got Up is a spiritual memoir or, as Rachel Srubas says, “retrospection with an eye toward the eternal.” Though it is, to be sure, a resurrection memoir, it is also heartbreakingly cruciform. Srubas refuses to recount her getting up before an honest account of being brought low, of the breaking of her spirit. Blending personal narrative with scriptural wisdom, she offers shining new insights into the nature of childhood, spiritual awakening, sexuality, sin, love, marriage, scapegoating, Christian compassion, the proclamation of Christ’s resurrection, and more. No pious abstractions or how-to cheeriness here. Srubas faces life with a striking blend of realism, intelligence, and steely faith. The Girl Got Up is a unique testament to the God who grants us freedom, lets us fall, and yet never fails to raise us up.

Rachel M. Srubas is the author of City of Prayer: Forty Days with Desert Christians (Liturgical Press, 2008) and Oblation: Meditations on St. Benedict’s Rule (Paraclete Press, 2006). She is a regular contributor to Give Us This Day and Weavings. She is an oblate of the Order of St. Benedict, a spiritual director, and a Presbyterian minister living in Tucson, Arizona.

Now that I have said something about fasting and about justice it is fitting that I say a few words about prayer. The more efficacious it is, if done as it should be, the more skillfully does our adversary usually hinder it. Prayer is gravely hindered by cowardice of spirit and excessive fear. This often happens when a person thinks about his own unworthiness so much that he does not turn his eyes toward divine kindness. But deep calls to deep, a deep of light to a deep of darkness, a deep of mercy to a deep of misery. The human heart is deep and inscrutable, but if my iniquity is great, Lord, much greater is your loving-kindness! h From Lent: Sermon Four

Bernard of Clairvaux

Theologian of the Cross Anthony N. S. Lane

This book offers a complete study of the doctrine of the cross in the writings of Saint Bernard of Clairvaux. Until now, this theologically rich topic has not received the attention it calls for. Anthony Lane analyzes and expounds the doctrine of the cross based on the nearly seven hundred references to the cross in Bernard’s writings. Among the important topics the author explores are: • Bernard’s letter against Abelard, a work of central significance for this topic • the “usward” aspect of Christ’s work, its subjective influence on us, and the “Godward” aspect, the way in which the cross puts us right with God • objections to this teaching posed by Abelard and others • ways in which Bernard applies his doctrine of the cross • a concluding assessment of Bernard’s teaching on the topic “In this well-researched study, Professor Anthony N. S. Lane rescues Saint Bernard of Clairvaux from affectionate obscurity and presents him as a major theologian of atonement. He also connects Bernard’s theology with his spirituality and shows why this medieval saint is so important for all who ponder the mystery of the cross. Outstanding in every way!” Timothy George Beeson Divinity School Samford University General editor, The Reformation Commentary on Scripture

Anthony N. S. Lane is professor of historical theology and director of research at the London School of Theology. He is the author of A Concise History of Christian Thought (2006) and Justification by Faith in Catholic-Protestant Dialogue (2002).

“Anthony Lane is able to make even the most difficult theological topics understandable. He is a master of Bernard’s writings. This masterful study does justice to the subtlety and poetry of Bernard’s thinking and to the great controversy between Bernard and Abelard over the doctrine of the Redemption.” Brian McGuire Roskilde University, Denmark | 1-800-858-5450 | 1-800-858-5450

Monastic Smaragdus of Saint-Mihiel

The Crown of Monks

Translated by David Barry, OSB

David Barry, OSB, made solemn profession at the Abbey of the Holy Trinity, New Norcia, Western Australia, in 1960. He has studied at Sant’Anselmo, Rome, and Saint Benet’s Hall, Oxford, as well as Murdoch University. In addition to doing parish work, teaching, working in monastic formation, and giving spiritual direction and retreats in Australia, he has taught in China and done archival research in Europe on his monastery’s founders.

Smaragdus was a monk and abbot of considerable standing in the early ninth-century church. His Diadema Monachorum (The Crown of Monks), together with a later commentary on the Rule of Saint Benedict, established him as one of the most significant interpreters of Benedict’s Rule in his day and for succeeding generations. Smaragdus intended The Crown of Monks as a daily resource for monastic communities, to be read at the evening chapter. He sought to arouse well-established monks “to a keener and loftier yearning for the heavenly country” and “to strengthen and instill fear” in weaker monks. In this gathering of excerpts from various respected sources, a genre known as the florilegium, Smaragdus addresses a wide variety of topics perennially significant to monks. It offers rich material for lectio and meditation, forming monastic minds and hearts for facing whatever challenges come their way, linking them with the formative years of the monastic tradition, and pointing them to the final goal: the kingdom of heaven.

The sacrifice that consists of prayer is more willingly accepted when, in the sight of the merciful judge, it is seasoned with love of neighbor. People really enhance this sacrifice if they offer it even for their adversaries.

Saint Bernard’s Three-Course Banquet

Humility, Charity, and Contemplation in the De Gradibus Bernard Bonowitz, OCSO Saint Bernard’s famous work, The Steps of Humility and Pride (in Latin, De gradibus humilitatis et superbiae), is a short book consisting of a mere fifty-seven paragraphs. In it, the Abbot of Clairvaux unpacks the doctrine of the very crucial chapter 7 of Saint Benedict’s sixth-century Rule for Monks, which explores the dynamic “steps” or “degrees” of both humility and pride. This chapter by Benedict could well be considered the spiritual basis of all Benedictine existence. In Saint Bernard’s Three-Course Banquet, Dom Bernard Bonowitz makes the teaching of both Bernard and Benedict accessible to modern readers. With Dom Bernard as a guide, many more readers can be sure of drinking at the purest sources of the monastic tradition, which at that depth becomes one with the Gospel itself. “Long ago St. Francis espoused Lady Poverty and in our own time Bernard Bonowitz, OCSO, has taken to himself Lady Truth. The happy fruit of this union is a commentary that conveys St. Bernard’s meaning in a way that brings us in touch with the original depth, incisiveness, and humor of this great work. We are deeply indebted to Bernard Bonowitz for making this possible by his own honesty, humor, and depth.” Mother Maureen McCabe, OCSO Author of I Am the Way: Stages of Prayer in Saint Bernard

A convert from Judaism with a degree in classics from Columbia University, Bernard Bonowitz was a Jesuit for nine years before entering St. Joseph’s Abbey in Spencer, Massachusetts. In 1996 he was elected superior of the monastery of Novo Mundo in Brazil. In 2008, he became abbot of Novo Mundo, now a community attracting an impressive number of young men anxious to follow the way of Cistercian discipleship.

“Dom Bernard offers an analysis so clear and compelling that this book will become a spiritual ‘source book’ for all who read it. There is a depth of personal experience and conviction in the book that is captivating. With sweeping references to literature, philosophy, and theology, Dom Bernard demonstrates a breadth and depth of appreciation for the spirituality of Bernard of Clairvaux that balances scholarship with spiritual direction.” Fr. James McCloskey, CSSp Duquesne University

“This book has much to recommend it, especially as a reliable interpretation of the Saint’s teaching. In a particular way, it will help us to discover how the doctrine of the Abbot of Clairvaux is present and active in our own monastic life as we live it in the here and now. The examples taken from the author’s personal experience give a special zest to the solid teaching the book contains, all of which contributes to the depth and relevance of its message and the attractiveness of its general style.” Abbot Bernardo Olivera, OCSO Author of The Sun at Midnight: Monastic Experience of the Christian Mystery | 1-800-858-5450 | 1-800-858-5450

Light in the Shoe Shop

A Cobbler’s Contemplations Agnes Day, OCSO Light in the Shoe Shop offers readers a unique and intimate glance into the day-today experience of living the cloistered life in feminine mode. In her “cobbler’s contemplations”—no metaphor here: the author did indeed make and mend her sisters’ shoes for many years—Mother Agnes reveals the very simple secret of monastic life, a secret she shows to be an inseparable combination of mindfulness and fidelity. It is continual mindfulness of God’s transformative presence and action and, in response, equally continual fidelity to each of the minutely detailed ways in which that loving divine presence woos the contemplative’s heart. Even those who strive for a more contemplative life outside of literal cloisters will find her reflections to be a great gift and inspiration. Agnes Day entered Mount Saint Mary’s Abbey in Wrentham, Massachusetts, in 1956. She was prioress there for nine years, as well as vocations director, secretary to the abbess, and community cobbler. In 1986 she was elected abbess, serving the community in that capacity for twenty-two years. Since 2008, she has been happily living her Cistercian vocation once again as a simple sister.

“This book is decidedly not just one more item in the picturesque genre of the ‘nun’s story.’ Rather, for all its slenderness, the volume bears a strong witness to the fact that a human life that stakes its all on loving will gradually become transfused with light.”

The Rule of St Basil in Latin and english

A Revised Critical Edition Translated by Anna M. Silvas Basil of Caesarea (AD 329–78), called “the Great” by later generations, was one of the fourth century’s greatest theologians and pastors. His influence on the foundation of monastic life was enormous. As he toured the early ascetic communities, members would ask Basil about various aspects of living the Gospel life. Their questions and Basil’s replies were taken down by tachygraphers and eventually became the Small Asketikon, first published in 366. The Regula Basilii is a Latin translation of this work, done by Rufinus of Aquileia in 397. It is one of the major sources of the Rule of Saint Benedict, and Benedict recommends it to zealous monks, calling it “the rule of our holy father Basil.” This volume represents a new Latin edition, translated and annotated in English by Anna M. Silvas. It also includes three extra questions and answers that survive only in the Syriac translation. Silvas balances masterfully between the rigors of academic research and the interests of an intelligent, nonspecialist readership. This volume promises to become an indispensable resource in understanding both the history and the spirituality of monastic life. | 1-800-858-5450

Anna M. Silvas is a research fellow in the School of Humanities at the University of New England, Australia. Her research concentrates on late antiquity, particularly on the development of Christian monasticism and the spirituality of ascetic women in early and medieval Christianity. Her published works include translation of ancient literature as well as monographs. Forthcoming is the first critical edition of the Syriac Questions of the Brothers. Her publications include Macrina the Younger: Philosopher of God (2008), In Quest of Basil’s Retreat: An Expedition to Ancient Pontus (2007), Gregory of Nyssa: The Letters (2007), The Asketikon of Basil the Great (2005), and Jutta and Hildegard: The Biographical Sources (1998).

Advent to Pentecost

Comparing the Seasons in the Ordinary and Extraordinary Forms of the Roman Rite Patrick Regan, OSB Foreword by Msgr. Kevin W. Irwin Abbot Patrick Regan compares the prayers and prefaces, readings and rubrics, calendar and chants of the 1962 Missal with those of the Missal as it was revised following the Second Vatican Council. The result is a striking demonstration of the splendor and superiority of the reformed Missal over its predecessor. “Destined to become a classic in the fields of liturgiology and pastoral theology.” Julia Upton, RSM St. John’s University, Jamaica, NY “What a marvelous piece of scholarship! Rich theological insight, practical pastoral critique, carefully researched textual development, invaluable ritual and scriptural analysis, and a pervasive liturgical spirituality mark this book.” Joyce Ann Zimmerman, CPPS Director Institute for Liturgical Ministry Dayton, OH

Patrick Regan, OSB, is professor of liturgy and sacramental theology at the Pontifical Athenaeum of Saint Anselm in Rome. He was abbot of his community, Saint Joseph Abbey in Louisiana, for almost twenty years.

Keys to Galatians

Collected Essays Jerome Murphy-O’Connor, OP Over the course of five decades of scholarly work on the New Testament, Jerome MurphyO’Connor has never been afraid to explore and question ideas that other scholars have simply presumed. In Keys to Galatians, he offers fresh perspectives on a rather neglected New Testament letter. This book includes new thinking on the origins of the letter and new insights into its purpose. The author explains why he dates the letter much earlier than most scholars and why Paul’s rhetorical technique should be considered nothing short of remarkable. He also explores illuminating hints about Paul’s personality. Murphy-O’Connor recognizes in Paul a notable openness to new ideas and what he calls “a daring strategy that would have been unthinkable for one less confident in his rhetorical skills.” “This collection of essays is classic Murphy-O’Connor —crystal clear and thought-provoking.” Raymond F. Collins Brown University Jerome Murphy-O’Connor is one of the world’s foremost authorities on the writings of St. Paul of Tarsus. He has been a professor of New Testament at the École Biblique of Jerusalem since 1967. He is the author of numerous works, including St. Paul’s Ephesus, St. Paul’s Corinth, and Paul the Letter-Writer, all published by Liturgical Press.

Jesus of Nazareth

What He Wanted, Who He Was Gerhard Lohfink Translated by Linda M. Maloney Jesus of Nazareth is the best Jesus book I know. It is solidly based on sound “Lohfink’s

biblical scholarship, full of fresh theological insights, respectful of the Gospels and their portraits of Jesus, and beautifully expressed.” Daniel J. Harrington, SJ Author of Jesus: A Historical Portrait Named one of the Best Books of 2012 by The Englewood Review of Books

“Some have said that this book will become a classic. Indeed, it should be so considered. But much will depend on whether or not scholars will dismiss it as lacking uniqueness and innovation, and whether or not non-professionals will invest the energy in reading a scholarly treatment of Jesus. May both groups stretch themselves and give it the attention it so richly deserves!” Michael J. Bowling The Englewood Review of Books Gerhard Lohfink was professor of New Testament exegesis at the University of Tübingen until 1986 when he resigned from his professorship in order to live and work as a theologian for the Catholic Integrated Community, an apostolic community of laity and priests in Bad Tölz, Bavaria. Lohfink is highly regarded for his scholarly work in Scripture, Christology, ecclesiology, and spirituality. His many books include Does God Need the Church? (Liturgical Press).

Chasing Mystery

A Catholic Biblical Theology Carey Walsh Walsh offers a work in biblical theology that explores the liveliness of the God of the Bible. She insists that the pages of the Bible do not simply describe divine presence; they evoke it in the process of reading. Not all the time, certainly not predictably, but enough to warrant a trust. Her goal is to strengthen the heart’s reading competency in order to facilitate our encounter with God. “Carey Walsh takes us into the thicket of Scripture, thorns and all, in order to ‘chase’ the divine mystery. Walsh helps us see where the holy may be lurking unnoticed, waiting to be discovered.” Peter S. Hawkins Yale Divinity School Author of Undiscovered Country: Imagining the World to Come “Chasing Mystery is a wide-ranging exploration of religious faith in today’s world. Walsh seeks at every turn to connect her study with a careful analysis of key biblical texts.” James Kugel Institute for the History of the Jewish Bible Bar Ilan University, Israel Author of How to Read the Bible Carey Walsh is associate professor of Old Testament at Villanova University. She is the author of Exquisite Desire: Religion, the Erotic, and the Song of Songs and The Fruit of the Vine: Viticulture in Ancient Israel.

It provides an up-to-date review of sources for the scholar but is straightforward enough to be accessible to anyone wishing to deepen their experience of the Eucharist.” David Fagerberg University of Notre Dame “The research is first-rate; the text is accessible and informative; and the gift and challenge of the Eucharist for the Christian community emerge unambiguously. This is a text that RCIA groups in parishes, no less than diocesan presbyterates, could explore to their great enrichment.” Richard Lennan Boston College

Liturgy in Migration

From the Upper Room to Cyberspace Edited by Teresa Berger “This volume serves to chasten sweeping summaries of historical experience that ignore these movements, to highlight the limits and value of our fragmentary knowledge, and to inspire a renewed sense of wonder of what it means to belong to the body of Christ.” John D. Witvliet Calvin Institute of Christian Worship Grand Rapids, Michigan “Liturgy in Migration offers solid scholarship that is not satisfied with fine analytical surveys but also asks critical questions and sees future challenges. One finds chapters on diverse Western Christian traditions and Eastern ones, and the overall pic ture ranges from Pentecostalism to Oriental Orthodoxy. This is particularly praiseworthy, because there exist hardly any scholarly studies that compare specific Eastern and Western liturgical traditions with each other. Here is one! It is a most valuable study, most warmly recommended to scholars, policy makers, and anyone interested in the most relevant subject of migrations!” Basilius Groen University of Graz, Austria Teresa Berger is professor of liturgical studies at the Yale Institute of Sacred Music and Yale Divinity School.

History and Heresy

How Historical Forces Can Create Doctrinal Conflicts Joseph F. Kelly In History and Heresy, Joseph F. Kelly considers heresies and the historical forces that shaped them. In his customarily engaging style, he demonstrates that historical forces and human beings of particular historical eras play a major role in how both orthodoxy and heresy come into being and how they are understood. Far from reducing orthodoxy and heresy to historical forces, he shows rather that a grasp of the historical context of both is essential in understanding them and especially in determining what might be orthodox or heretical. “An engaging storyteller, Kelly teaches well what happens when context gets lost and people start using church history as a proof text instead of a dynamic interplay of events, places, and circumstances. Kelly invites the reader to encounter questions just as these historical players did: without knowing precisely the best way to explain mysteries or how things would turn out.” Christopher M. Bellitto Author of The Living Church

Joseph F. Kelly, PhD, is professor of religious studies at John Carroll University in Cleveland, Ohio. His books include The Feast of Christmas, The Origins of Christmas, The Ecumenical Councils of the Catholic Church, and others, all published by Liturgical Press.

Cave, Refectory, Road Monastic Rhythms for Contemporary Living Ian Adams

Cave, Refectory, Road explores how traditional monastic life is helping to shape a new flowering of Christian community today. It traces the roots of “new monasticism” and draws on the classic elements of monastic life to suggest how this ancient wisdom, learning, and spiritual practice might be reinterpreted for new settings. “At the heart of this enlightening work is Adams’ contention that the monastic way offers ‘ways to reshape the world for good.’ With precision and passion, he explores the value of practices of hospitality, commitment, creativity, freedom, devotion, humility, simplicity, rootedness, and crossing boundaries.” “Ian Adams captures the essential genius of the monastic tradition. His book gives simple, practical inspiration for ‘ordinary living.’” Abbot Stuart Burns, OSB Mucknell Abbey

Ian Adams is an Anglican priest and founder of mayBe, a new monastic community in Oxford. A popular speaker, he is the creator of Morning Bell, a daily call to prayer sent by e-mail, text, and Twitter. He lives in South Devon, England.

Monks and Muslims

Monastic and Shi’a Spirituality in Dialogue Edited by Mohammad Ali Shomali and William Skudlarek, OSB If Christians and Muslims are to live in peace, encouraging one another to grow in holiness and working together for the good of all God’s creation, they must move beyond politicized and often negative images of one another. Monastic/Muslim dialogue—issuing from friendship and focused on revelation, prayer, and witness—is an important component in this effort. Indeed, it is essential. “Share this book with a friend. Witness how serious Muslims and monks share face-to-face, each from their own tradition. We treasure each other’s Way to God.” Sister Mary Margaret Funk Our Lady of Grace Monastery Beech Grove, Indiana Mohammad Ali Shomali is the author of several books, including Ethical Relativism: An Analysis of the Foundations of Morality, Discovering Shi‘a Islam, and Shi‘a Islam: Origins, Faith and Practices. He is also coeditor of Catholics and Shi‘a in Dialogue: Studies in Theology and Spirituality, Catholic-Shi‘a Engagement: Reason and Faith in Theory and Practice, and  A Catholic-Shi‘a Dialogue: Ethics in Today’s Society. William Skudlarek is a monk of Saint John’s Abbey in Collegeville, Minnesota, and Secretary General of Monastic Interreligious Dialogue. His books include The Attentive Voice: Reflections on the Meaning and Practice of Interreligious Dialogue and Demythologizing Celibacy: Practical Wisdom from Christian and Buddhist Monasticism.

The Life of the Vows

Christian de Chergé

In these talks, published here for the first time, Merton approaches the Benedictine vows of obedience, stability, and conversion of manners not in isolation but set firmly in the context of anthropology, morality, soteriology, and ecclesiology.

Christian de Chergé, prior of the Cistercian community at Tibhirine, Algeria, was assassinated with six of his fellow monks in 1996. De Chergé saw his monastic vocation as a call to be a person of prayer among persons who pray, that is, among the Muslim friends and neighbors with whom he and his brothers shared daily life. De Chergé’s writings bear witness to an original thinker who insists on the value of interreligious dialogue for a more intelligent grasp of one’s own faith.

Initiation into the Monastic Tradition 6 Thomas Merton Edited by Patrick F. O’Connell

“The Life of the Vows is an excellent, detailed presentation of the perennial challenges of the Benedictine vows for anyone who wants to understand them better in order to live them well. A truly helpful study for one in initial formation or as a refresher course for veteran monastics.” Br. M. Anthony Weber, OCSO Vocation Director Abbey of the Genesee, Piffard, NY Thomas Merton (1915–1968), Catholic convert, Cistercian monk and hermit, poet, contemplative, social critic, and pioneer in interreligious dialogue, was a seminal figure of twentieth-century American Christianity. Patrick F. O’Connell is professor of English and theology at Gannon University, Erie, Pennsylvania. A former president of the International Thomas Merton Society, he edits The Merton Seasonal and is coauthor of The Thomas Merton Encyclopedia. He has edited five previous volumes of Thomas Merton’s monastic conferences for the Monastic Wisdom Series, most recently Monastic Observances (2010).

A Theology of Hope Christian Salenson Translated by Nada Conic

“I highly recommend anyone interested in ecumenism or Christian and Islamic studies to read this book. Today, as parts of the Church become more closed minded, more sectarian, more inward-looking, we need more words of wisdom from people such as Abbot de Chergé, who provide us with hope in this world which seems to lack hope.” Fr. William C. Mills Author of Encountering Jesus in the Gospels Christian Salenson is a priest of the diocese of Nîmes, France. Former rector of the seminary of Avignon, he is today director of L’institut de science et de théologie des religions at Marseille. He has published Prier 15 jours avec Christian de Chergé (Paris: Éditions Nouvelle Cité, 2006).

The Sun at Midnight

Monastic Experience of the Christian Mystery Bernardo Olivera, OCSO Bernardo Olivera offers a splendid, easily accessible summary of mystical theology in the Cistercian school. A master of both the theology and the practice of the spiritual life, analyzes this tradition first in its rich human, biblical, and doctrinal connotations and then according to its most typical expressions as they are lived among Cistercian mystics, with reference also to other Christian men and women. Olivera explores the rich testimony of the monks of the twelfth century as well as the lesser-known nuns and holy women of the thirteenth century. “This is a firmly Christ-centered book: as the author shows throughout, it is because there was once darkness at noon that we can now speak of the sun at midnight.” Abbot Elias Dietz Abbey of Gethsemani, Trappist, Kentucky

Bernardo Olivera, OCSO, is abbot of Nuestra Señora de los Ángeles in Azul, Argentina. He served as Abbot General of the Cistercians of the Strict Observance from 1990 to 2008. Dom Bernardo is author of How Far to Follow? The Martyrs of Atlas (Cistercian Publications), as well as many books published in South America.

Separate but Equal

Cistercian Lay Brothers 1120–1350 James France “Separate but Equal is at once eminently erudite and commendably readable. James France’s authoritative volume will be of immense value not only for students of the Cistercian Order but for anyone interested in medieval religious culture.” Mette Birkedal Bruun University of Copenhagen “With this book, we finally have a comprehensive history of the medieval Cistercian lay brothers. James France skillfully employs a wide range of sources to illuminate the lay brothers’ social origins, their economic functions, and their religious ideals, and he carefully assesses both the lay brothers’ contributions to the Order and their eventual decline.” Martha Newman University of Texas at Austin Author of The Boundaries of Charity: Cistercian Culture and Ecclesiastical Reform, 1098-1180 James France received his PhD from Roskilde University, Denmark. He is the author of The Cistercians in Scandinavia, The Cistercians in Medieval Art, and Medieval Images of Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, all published by Cistercian Publications. Dr. France is a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries.

“Worship in the Early Church will provide a useful overview of the commonalities and differences in worship traditions within the church, not only across time but also across space. . . . To discover these early writings on worship is to discover a spirit that has been lost in our modern age. For Christians to appropriate that spirit would connect us much more strongly to the early church and to the teachings of Christ than any given liturgical practice.” Theological Librarianship
