5-0 out of 5 stars Whatever you bind on Earth...
When Jesus said to Peter "Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven..." (Matthew 16:29) he wasn't talking about a book being bound -- necessarily -- but he could have been -- because the result of that charge is bound in this book. Or, put it more accurately what Peter, the Apostles, and those that that succeeded them...what they decided under the infallible guidance of the Holy Spirit (John 16:13...he will lead you into ALL truth)...is documented in this book. This is what Jesus was talking about. And to think that for a few bucks, you can have your own indexed, hardbound, edition. That is perhaps not a miracle, but it's pretty incredible. If left stranded ona deserted island, this is the book you want...along with a Bible.

5-0 out of 5 stars The authoritative source of what Catholics believe
While I grew up Protestant (Baptist) I didn't know that any Christian group had such a thing as a Catechism book, a book of their confession, or even by-laws. I thought all that was needed was the Bible (sola Scriptura). As a result all I learned about who the Catholics are and what they believe was from pastors with an anti-Catholic ax to grind, mis-informed or non-practicing Catholic classmates, and biased anti-Romish Protestant literature.

5-0 out of 5 stars Revelation Unveiled
This excellent book gives us an orthodox Catholic insight into both the nature of the Mass and into the book of Revelation, or the Apocalypse. Using the Hebrew apocalyptic literary style that figures greatly into the Old Testament books of Daniel and Ezekiel, St John gives us an apocalyptic view of the end of an age, that of the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem and of the animal sacrifices of the ancient Hebrews. He does this by painting a panoramic picture of the demise of ancient Judaism and its successor, the early Christian Church.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent explanation
This book offer a very nice and logical and easy to understand on the book of Revelation. This book should be subtitled : the Revelation for Dummies. Very entertaining and easy to read.

5-0 out of 5 stars Buy this book
Ok I pray the everyone who takes the time to attend Mass on Sunday would read this.I pray that those who don't attend Mass would read this.I wish that anyone that felt the were attending Mass just because it was an obligation, have a ho-hum attitude or felt bored at Mass would READ THIS BOOK! If you thought that the Book of Revelations was put there to scare you this book will change you life. Dr. Hahn has done it again he has really made the Bible and the Mass come to life.I no longer go to Mass just going through the punches. You know, walk in five minutes before Mass, holy water, a quick lowering of the knee, songs, readings,... and off to breakfast. Ok I really tried to get my head into Sunday worship but I just did not get it.Now I can't get enough. You can even see me at daily Mass I love it so much.I didn't get the why from my parents, I didn't get the why from society, and sadly I didn't get the why from the church.Dr. Hahn has helped me to understand why we should all love going to Mass. Buy this book or even better get the DVD. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Young Children and Worship
Young Children and Worship is an inspiring way to draw young children into the stories of scripture, the stories of God, enabling them to worship, interact with God, and ponder who He is. The form is a simplified version of the traditional order of worship emphasizing quiet, beauty and awe. After the introductory chapters most of the book tells you how to present specific stories. The focus in this book is on basic stories that tie into the church year and traditional worship. I found it very inspiring, whatever your worship tradition.

5-0 out of 5 stars Kids love it - and so do I
Jerome Berryman and Sonja Stewart offer a reverence for telling Bible stories that is unmatched by other curriculum with which I am familiar.I attended a workshop with him 15 years ago, and have used this style of teaching off and on since then.I am working with a new church development, and our kids are loving Sunday school.I like that we don't have to spend a lot of money, and can expand and contract as needed without having to buy a lot of expensive "take home" flyers that end up in the trash.Our kids are learning the Bible - how exciting is that!

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Resource with All Patterns and Instructions!
I have this book and the newer Godly play books.Young Children and Worship has been more useful to my small team because it includes the patterns and instructions needed to make the presentation materials for each story.(The Godly Play books simply direct you to use a set, presumably purchased online from Godly Play Resources).We are on a budget and have been able to use inexpensive materials (candles, construction paper, felt, cardboard, etc.)to make many presentations as we work on making some wooden sets. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Pleased with the Basics
I sincerely appreciated the authenticity of Rory and his commitment to holding true to a strong set of core values.While his task of leading talented people requires give and take and some degree of "tolerance", Rory was encouraging leaders not to sacrifice on core matters just to hold on to talented people.Often times the best action for a person who has lost site of his/her talent and value is the shock of realizing life is full of performers who need a reality check.

5-0 out of 5 stars Heart of the Artist, The
I am using this book as a study tool for my Christian contemporary worship band.We have all found it very useful in identifying character issues that confront musicians and singers of all levels of ability.The book addresses those issues from a Judeo-Christian perspective.I highly recommend it.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Guide on Your Spiritual Journey
In "Sacred Rhythms," author and spiritual director, Ruth Haley Barton, has skillfully added to the growing literature in the field. Her personal writing style is a breath of fresh air compared to similar books that at times feel a tad too "spiritualized" and other-worldly.
3-0 out of 5 stars It's Great If You Already Own...
Unfortunately, the best that I can say of this book is that it should only be purchased after Richard Foster's Celebration of Discipline. His treatment is still, by far, the best and most comprehensive material on these matters.

1-0 out of 5 stars Did we just throw prose out the window?
I know that David Crowder is a popular musician and a fairly decent one at that.Yet who was it that thought this man could write?Honestly, after the first ten sentence fragments I gave up.Am I the only one who finds this book entirely unreadable?Does this man have an editor?Or are the numerous grammatical errors supposed to make this 'post-modern'?I have a thousand more questions like these, but I will spare you.While I have respect for the music of the author I just cannot believe that a book this poorly written could have been published by any respectable publishing company.I can't even speak for the content as I was so put off by the lack of basic writing skills of that author that I was unable to finish any of the chapters I started.Do yourself a favor.Go read some Thomas Merton or Kathleen Norris instead.

3-0 out of 5 stars Refreshing departure from typical Christian literature
Be aware though, this book might not be what you think. While the first quarter of it is a spiritual contemplation on the nature of God and existence, the remainder is purely an examination of the Psalms.

5-0 out of 5 stars Transformational
As a pastor, I have read many books on spiritual development and growth.As a Christian seeking to grow spiritually, I have read even more.Like a previous reviewer, I would place this book on par with Richard Foster or Dallas Willard--perhaps even higher because it is so very accessible.I am particularly taken with the way in which the author links a person's natural desires with his or her best choice of disciplines.As all Christians know, it is easier to read about spiritual disciplines than practice them, and I have certainly been guilty of that.However, in the weeks since I bought Calhoun's book, I have read very little.Rather, I have been PRACTICING.And that says it all.Phenomenal!

5-0 out of 5 stars Staying Under the Dove
If you want to "keep company with Jesus", Adele Calhoun points the way, through classic and modern spiritual disciplines. The disciplines, she explains, can give God's Holy Spirit opportunity to hover over our hearts-- just as he hovered dove-like over the waters at creation.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great Synthesis of the Spiritual Disciplines
As a chaplain in hospice care and for a professional sports team I am always looking for books that synthesize larger topics or "weightier" works and bring practical applications to the forefront.

THIS BOOK WAS SO GREAT I READ IT IN ONE DAY AND COULD NOT WAIT TO GO TO MASS TO PUT MY KNOWLEDGE TO USE.I LEARNED MORE ABOUT MY RELIGION FROM THIS BOOK THEN I DID IN A LIFETIME.I WENT THROUGH ALL OF THE MOTIONS IN CHURCH NOT KNOWING WHY I DID THEM, THEN I BOUGHT THIS BOOK AND NOW I AM AWARE OF MY EVERY MOVE AND WHY I AM DOING THOSE ACTIONS.HOW MORE BEAUTIFUL MASS IS TO ME NOW, NOW THAT I KNOW THE REASON FOR EVERY MOVE.I AM SO GLAD I BOUGHT THIS BOOK.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to read and Understand
as a convert, I found this book to answer almost all my questions. It helped me to understand mass on my terms. I would definitly recommend this for RCIA students and anyone else interested in the learning process. The only addition I would make is to incorporate where latin might be spoken or prayed during mass.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book for beginners
This was the first book I bought on Asatru. It describes all the basics of the religion like ethics, orlog, the gods and goddesses, etc. This would be the book to give to family members or friends who are unfamiliar with your beliefs.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great overview
This little book is very direct and to the point. It goes over alot of main topics which are very essential to Asatru: what Asatru is and is not, the Nine Noble Virtues, ethics, Orlog, Frith, oaths, a basic introduction to the Gods and Goddesses, the Blots, ceremonies, and even a little bit about the runes and different types of magic. He gives very good modern day examples, focusing less on abstract concepts and more on how one can apply them and really "live" Asatru, as the title says.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great Basic Review of Asatru
This book, although it does not delve very deeply into the religion, does give a good overview of the belief system of Asatru.The author claims only to give the reader ideas for their own research.A great jumping off point for the beginner.Also a wonderful resource for those who are exploring the many religions out there.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Benedictine Books
A practical, hands-on and realistic approach to the Rule of Saint Benedict. In true Benedictine spirit it is applicable to all people within all situations, yet is steeped within the monastic tradition. A useful and truly useable book.

5-0 out of 5 stars A wealth of useful tools, practices, and explanations, ....
As an Oblate of St. Benedict I have read many books on the Rule of Benedict.This is the most useful book on the Rule that I have read in several years.Jane Tomaine helps us understand the Rule of Benedict as it applies to our daily lives in the 21st Century.She begins by relating the Rule of Benedict to a foundation of Christian faith/life... our Baptismal Covenant.Regardless of your specific denomination, age, or faith tradition, you are likely to find a wealth of useful tools, practices, and explanations... of ways to seek (and establish) a fresh, consistent, awareness of God in your everyday life.
5-0 out of 5 stars Practical wisdom for everyday life
This book thoroughly lives up to its title. As a practical "how to" manual, it offers an amazing array of tools useful in very ordinary situations. Furthermore, it is firmly based on monastic tradition and excel-lent literature on the Rule of Benedict, as well as Tomaine's own life experience. Her interpretation of Benedictine obedience is a good example of her practical yet deeply spiritual approach: "Obedience is not what we expect from others. Obedience is what we do ourselves for others." Regarding stability she writes: "God in Christ is our Rock and as Christians, we want to put on Christ and become a rock too. We want to have a firm and solid center at the core of our being, so that we can withstand the unpredictability and transience of our world." A good bibliography adds to the value of the book for anyone interested in Benedict's 1500-year old Rule as a resource for living sanely in today's world.Sr. Lenora Black, OSB ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A Reliable Guide
Dr. Hamilton was my Preaching teacher in seminary. In fact I was a visiting student and I wanted to have a different academic experience. Thus I ended up sitting in his class. At first I was a little skeptical of the teacher that teaches out of his own book. Nonetheless, by the end of the semester my preaching improved considerably due to the "Homelitical Handbook." Five years after taking his class I find myself going back to his book for guidance. I find the "Homelitical Handbook" not only a reliable preaching guide, but also a clear and honest approach for the task of preaching to the avid homeletician. Its challenging simplicity helped me improve and polish my homelitical skills.

4-0 out of 5 stars A guidebook for the passionate
Donald Hamilton's Homiletical Handbook is one of a vast library of books which treat the subject of preaching.In his own introduction, Hamilton admits that although there is a virtual army of books on preaching, there are very few which are actually helpful in the task.Many handbooks are based on faulty views of scripture, weak hermeneutics, or a level of criticism which makes practical application impossible.Others offer valuable insight into theory and theology, but do not address the practical aspects of the preaching act.With this in mind, Hamilton honestly states that his handbook is not meant to address every aspect and detail of the "preaching task."It is also not meant to teach the art of sermon delivery.Instead, Homiletical Handbook is meant to deal with homiletics, or the science of preaching.An introductory treatment, this book is meant for beginning preaching students.Its intent is to spur both future and beginning preachers into an informed passion for the science of proper hermeneutics. He is brilliantly successful!! ... Read more

Parenting in the Pew is part memoir and part practical theology as a pastor's wife grapples with issues regarding children and the public worship service.For individuals and churches who are questioning participating in children's ministry programs through elementary school, Parenting in the Pew will provide food for thought and conviction that it is good, right and worthwhile for children to worship with their parents.

This book is full of fun and helpful suggestions for parents who love worship and want to share their worship experience with their children (toddlers to teens). I think her suggestions can easily cross a variety of worship styles. As a parent of grown sons, she can look back at the struggles and see the fruit that remained. I found her chapter on the sacraments particularly thought-provoking.

5-0 out of 5 stars I Love This Book
One of the perennial issues all parents have to deal with is how to effectively train their children to participate in the morning/evening worship service.This can be one of the most embarrassing seasons in any parents life.But it is also one of the most important seasons in the life of your child as they learn to participate in the right worship of God among congregation of the redeemed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource
A wonderful approach to making art for sanctuaries, not the "bumper sticker on fabric" approach favored by so many church banner books.Some of the designs are dated, but the text will give you something to chew on.For example, she doesn't look favorably on the idea of lavish floral arrangements for altars every Sunday, saying that the altar is supposed to be a sacred space, not a florist's display window.At my church, I adapted one of her ideas using origami cranes as pieces to form a much bigger design suspended over the altar.It was hugely appreciated by the congregants of my liberal church.

5-0 out of 5 stars An amazing book
This book will inspire you to really think about liturgical art in terms of spiritual reflection and growth, not just decoration.Ms. Chinn's work is inspiring and awesome.My only complaint was that there aren't many examples of projects in small worship spaces. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good story, poor theology
This story written about the author's experience is excellent.The people he encounters and their strange world make for a fascinating read.However, as a Christian it was difficult for me to read accounts of people who are so obviously misguided in their faith.Purposely taking up venomous snakes, drinking poison and passing through fire is in frank opposition to Biblical teachings about not "testing God".In fact, the verses upon which the main characters have built their theology are considered by most to be too controversial for deriving unique doctrinal stands in that they do not appear in the oldest manuscripts of Mark's gospel.(Research Mark 16.)
5-0 out of 5 stars An amazing piece of journalism on a freaked-out topic
What a cool book.I mean...wow.
2-0 out of 5 stars A GENUINE DISSAPOINTMENT
I can't believe this book was a finalist for the National Book Award! Although it was well written in the sense of grammar and vocabulary, it was not an effective vehicle to introduce readers to the subject. I live in Appalachia, and I feel this book in some way demeans the practices of these persons religion. It starts out with a reporter covering a murder trial where a "snake handler" forces his wife to be bitten in the hopes that she will die so he can have another woman. I would have loved the court dialog and more of a background of the alleged "crime."I definitely would have found more background information on the snake handlers interesting, and also more information about the strychnine; where they get it, how they know ratio to mix with water, etc. Strychnine from churches around my home has been found to be "non-lethal" doses.

4-0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Good!!!To Coin A Phrase, Don't Judge A Book By It's Cover!!!
I have the original version of this book, the one with the picture of the Broomstick Babe on the cover.I wasn't willing to pay full price for this book because of the picture, so bought it at my local Half-Price Books for a few dollars.Because of the picture, as well as Ms. RavenWolf's reputation, I really didn't expect much.
5-0 out of 5 stars Okay...So are we Wiccan or Catholic?
Wow! I just read a few reviews on here for this book and lets just say that I am ashamed to call myself apart of the Wiccan Religion right now! I have never been so humiliated before! People think this book is bad...its not real witchcraft...shes "fluffy"...Gardnarian Tradion is the ONLY way...you SHOULD read THESE authors and no others...is this sounding familiar? Unfortunatly, YES! People get so wound up in these so called "Witch Wars" that Wicca, once a religion that promoted "PERSONAL FREEDOM" to suit YOUR practice to YOUR needs is being transformed into a dogmatic "ONE WAY RELIGION". I was raised Catholic, hated the dogma and constant fear, To Ride a Silver Broomstick was my first book on The Craft given to me by my Wiccan girlfriend in High School. Silver showed me the way!
5-0 out of 5 stars I definately reccomend this book!
Silver delves into so many things I love. I guess my only regret is the lack of pre-outlined ritauls. I read this after TeenWitch and I think that that's her "fluffiest" book. This is so good and it rounded it out very nicely. I use both books when doing rituals, spells, and meditations, and even did the TeenSeeker ritual outlined in TeenWitch. Buy this book, and you will forever understand. ... Read more

Confession is good for the soul.
4-0 out of 5 stars Scott Hahn Does it Again!
Scott Hahn has a great knack for presenting in easy-to-understand layman's terms complex Catholic issues and he once again does a great job here with the sacrament of reconciliation.This is great for anyone who wants to know how to make a good confession and how to overcome the fear that comes with confessing your sins through a priest.All you need to know about this wonderful sacrament.Recommended.

5-0 out of 5 stars Mr. Hahn, once again, shows us the beauty of our faith!
There should be no surprises that Mr. Hahn, once again, shows us the beauty of our faith.He captures the depth of understanding of all that Catholicism is and helps us on our journey as few others are able to do.Excellent reading.Cheryl Dickow, author, "Reclaiming Your Christian Self in a Secular World: A Woman's Worth." ...
