  • Author(s):
    John Henry Cardinal Newman
    Subject(s):
    Theism, Faith
    Abstract:

    This classic of Christian apologetics seeks to persuade the skeptic that there are good reasons to believe in God even though it is impossible to understand the deity fully. First written over a century ago, the Grammar of Assent speaks as powerfully to us today as it did to its first readers. Because of the informal, non-technical character of Newman’s work, it still retains its immediacy as an invaluable guide to the nature of religious belief. A new introduction by Nicholas Lash revi…

    Abstract:

    Chosen among Women: Mary and Fatima in Medieval Christianity and Shi'ite Islam combines historical analysis with the tools of gender studies and religious studies to compare the roles of the Virgin Mary in medieval Christianity with those of Fatima, daughter of the prophet Muhammad, in Shi'ite Islam. The book explores the proliferation of Marian imagery in Late Antiquity through the Church fathers and popular hagiography. It examines how Merovingian authors assimilated powerful quee…

    Abstract:

    A six-day series of interviews between Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Elie Wiesel and French journalist Philippe de Saint-Cheron, Evil and Exile probes some of the most crucial and pressing issues facing humankind today. Having survived the unspeakable evil of the Holocaust, Wiesel remained silent for ten years before dedicating his life to the memory of this tragedy, witnessing tirelessly to remind an often indifferent world of its potential for self-destruction. Wiesel offers wise counsel in …

    Joseph P. Wawrykow
    Subject(s):
    Grace (Theology), Merit (Christianity)
    Abstract:

    Offering a fresh approach to one significant aspect of the soteriology of Thomas Aquinas, God’s Grace and Human Action brings new scholarship and insights to the issue of merit in Aquinas’s theology. Through a careful historical analysis, Joseph P. Wawrykow delineates the precise function of merit in Aquinas’s account of salvation. Wawrykow accounts for the changes in Thomas’s teaching on merit from the early Scriptum on the Sentences of Peter Lombard to the later Summa theo…

    Discrimination in criminal justice administration--United States--History, Mexican Americans--Civil rights--History, Mexican Americans--History
    Abstract:

    Gringo Justice is a comprehensive analysis and interpretation of the experiences of the Chicano people with the legal and judicial system in the United States. Beginning in 1848 and working to the present, a theory of Gringo justice is developed and applied to specific areas-displacement from the land, vigilantes and social bandits, the border, the police, gangs, and prisons. A basic issue addressed is how the image of Chicanos as bandits or criminals has persisted in various forms.

    Abstract:

    Coffey does a masterful job of situating Léon Harmel-his life, his work, his ideology-in the context of French political and social turmoil in the last third of the nineteenth century. More than a Catholic paternalist, Harmel created a model ‘earthly paradise’ for his workers, drawing on principles of utopian socialism to give labor control over the factory environment. Harmel’s effort to lay the groundwork for class conciliation drew praise even from leading Socialists, and his l…

    Abstract:

    Pastoral Quechua explores the story of how the Spanish priests and missionaries of the Catholic church in post-conquest Peru systematically attempted to “incarnate” Christianity in Quechua, a large family of languages and dialects spoken by the dense Andes populations once united under the Inca empire. By codifying (and imposing) a single written standard, based on a variety of Quechua spoken in the former Inca capital of Cuzco, and through their translations of devotional, catech…

    Subject(s):
    Philosophy, Logic
    Abstract:

    The dual purpose of this volume–to provide a distinctively philosophical introduction to logic, as well as a logic-oriented approach to philosophy–makes this book a unique and worthwhile primary text for logic and/or philosophy courses. Logic and Philosophy covers a variety of elementary formal and informal types of reasoning, including a chapter on traditional logic that culminates in a treatment of Aristotle’s philosophy of science; a truth-functional logic chapter that examines Wit…

    Transcendence (Philosophy), Philosophical anthropology
    Abstract:

    Readers expecting a traditional philosophical work will be surprised and delighted by David Walsh’s Politics of the Person as the Politics of Being, his highly original reflection on the transcendental nature of the person. A specialist in political theory, Walsh breaks new ground in this volume, arguing, as he says in the introduction, “that the person is transcendence, not only as an aspiration, but as his or her very reality. Nothing is higher. That is what _Politics of the Pers…

    Abstract:

    In Scandal Work: James Joyce, the New Journalism, and the Home Rule Newspaper Wars, Margot Gayle Backus charts the rise of the newspaper sex scandal across the fin de siècle British archipelago and explores its impact on the work of James Joyce, a towering figure of literary modernism.

    Based largely on archival research, the first three chapters trace the legal, social, and economic forces that fueled an upsurge in sex scandal over the course of the Irish Home Rule debates during James Joy…

    When Bill Meissner’s collection of short stories Hitting into the Wind was published in 1994, it was called “a quiet masterpiece of baseball writing” by the Greensboro, North Carolina, News and Record. The Seattle Post-Intelligencer said, “Bill Meissner captures baseball with all its crystalline beauty-the remarkable reverberation of time and space and character.” And The New York Times Book Review said, “Just about every tale here recalls those precious years whe…

    Abstract:

    In the Proslogion St. Anselm presents a philosophical argument for the existence of God. Anselm’s proof, known since the time of Kant as the ontological argument for the existence of God, has played an important role in the history of philosophy and has been incorporated in various forms into the systems of Descartes, Leibniz, Hegel, and others.
