Description:
This book is about the Chicago ordination class of 1969 and how they helped changed the Church. The author interviewed six members of this class (Michael Ahlstrom, Larry Duris, Bob Heidenreich, Tom Libera, Ed Upton, and Bill Zavaski), personally. Each subject explained his background in the seminary and his pastoral work, in local parishes. In the ordination class, there were originally 35 men; after several deaths and occupational shifts, there remain nineteen who are still officially listed as active. The six interviewed, with perhaps another four or five, have maintained long-term relationships with each other up to the present day. They have shared memories and ongoing reflections, represented in this book.
These six men, each in his own way, did his best to implement the teaching of the Second Vatican Council, as each understood that teaching. This book abounds in tales of personal experiences. By reading these tales, you can get a penetrating glimpse into the changing Church, in the… Read More

Description:
What was it like to watch the Wright brothers soar into the sky? To hear the first crackling voice aired on the radio? To cower in the ghastly trenches of Europe during World War I? To lose everything in the stock-market crash of 1929, or experience the birth of rock and roll? To watch the Berlin Wall divide East and West, and then, twenty-eight years later, to see it fall under the weight of tens of thousands seeking to taste freedom?For seven years, researchers, reporters, and producers for ABC News searched the world's archives. These news people looked for the rarest and most stunning photographs. They consulted eminent twentieth-century historians. They interviewed hundreds of eyewitnesses of the significant events of the twentieth century.As a result, you have available to you this splendid book, The Century. This is the independent, companion volume to the landmark ABC News television series, The Century, also featured on The History Channel. This book was written by the late Peter… Read More

The Domesday Book permits English citizens to view their heritage and their lives foreshadowed in the careful lettering of 11th century scribes. There are more than 12,500 entries in 37 gazetteers.
During the winter of 1085, Kign William sat down with his Christmas court and commanded them to make a survey of the whole of England, to set a value on the land he conquered 19 years previously. As a result, Royal Commissioners were sent throughout the 37 Norman counties, to ask questions of every landowner. The data were recorded in this Domesday Book.

Description:
This book is an extensive bibliography, with 570 entries, of publications on the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. All books and articles listed are in English. Most entries have been annotated and arranged alphabetically by author, under five general classifications: General Works; History and Development; Teaching and Practice; Literature and Scriptures; and Organization and Government.

Each annotation summarizes the content of the book or article; where necessary, there is also an evaluation of the accuracy or quality of the work. A number of books and articles have been listed but not annotated, sometimes because the title is sufficiently explanatory, sometimes because the author could not make a firsthand examination. Most entries, however, are annotated, thanks to the excellent resources of the Institute of Ethiopian Studies in Addis Ababa, the Library of Congress in Washington, the New York Public Library, and the Oriental Institute Library in Chicago.

A one-page introduction states that the… Read More

Description:
In this bestseller, the author traces the history of ethics in the West, with regard to sexual morality, including, for example, contraception, homosexuality, and extramarital relations.  The author details specific Church teachings, doctrines, and practices related to sexual moraltiy.  Beginning with non-Christian traditions, this erudite study deals with the earliest evidence, including the New Testament; she also studies in extensive detail the teachings of St. Augustine and other Church fathers.  She also considers the evolution of clerical celibacy, the influence of monasticism, the imposition of monastic norms on lay people, the early penitentials, and especially Scholasticism, including Abelard and Aquinas.  The authors, too, how the Church was influenced by more recent movements, such as Lutheranism and Jansenism. 
On the one hand, much of the study has a polemical cast; the author clearly has an axe to grind.  She points out how much the Western tradition is misogynist and pessimistic… Read More

Description:
In this book, the author details the history of the Christian Eucharist, the Mass, from its beginnings in Jewish liturgy to the present. Father Foley, OFM, Cap., does not deal just with the texts of the Mass; he also provides extensive commentary on architecture, music, and sacred vessels. This book is profusely illustrated with drawings, maps, music, and photographs. The book concludes with an extensive glossary, a chapter-by-chapter bibliography, and a 19-page index. Such documentation bears witness to the Father Foley's scholarship and reliability.The author holds a Ph.D. in liturgical studies from the University of Notre Dame, from the early 1970s. His work, as you would expect, is well researched and theologically oriented. Father Foley also has done graduate work in music and so is especially sensitive to this dimension of Christian celebration. He is currently professor of liturgy and music at the Catholic Theological Union (CTU) in Chicago.
