A perennial favorite. This short treatise outlines the history of the Bible in complete, yet simple terms. Shows how the Catholic Church has determined and proclaimed through her infallible rulings just which books are actually part of Sacred Scripture, and how she has preserved and maintained the Bible throughout the centuries. A real eye-opener, especially for anyone who thinks the Bible is a Protestant book.
IF all were true that is alleged against the Catholic Church in her treatment of Holy Scripture, then the proper title of these papers should be ‘How we got’, but ‘How we have not got the Bible’. The common and received opinion about the matter among non-Catholics in Britain, for the most part, has been that Rome hates the Bible-that she has done all she could to destroy it—that in all countries where she has held sway she has kept the Bible from the hands of the people—has taken it and burned it whenever she found anyone reading it. Or if she cannot altogether prevent its publication or its perusal, at least she renders it as nearly useless as possible by sealing it up in a dead language which the majority of people can neither read nor understand. And all this she does, (so we are told), because she knows that her doctrines are absolutely opposed to and contradicted by the letter of God’s written Word—she holds and propagates dogmas and traditions which could not stand one moment’s examination if exposed to the searching light of Holy Scripture.

This little book about the Bible grew out of lectures which the writer delivered on the subject to mixed audiences. The lectures were afterwards expanded, and appeared in a series of articles in the Catholic press 1908-9, and are now with slight alterations reprinted. Their origin will sufficiently account for the colloquial style employed throughout. There is, therefore, no pretence either of profound scholarship or of eloquent language; all that is attempted is a popular and, as far as possible, accurate exposition along familiar lines of the Catholic claim historically in regard to the Bible. It is candidly controversial without, however, let us hope, being uncharitable or unfair. Friends had more than once suggested the reissue of the articles; and it appeared to the writer that at last the proper moment for it had come when the Protestant world is jubilating over the Tercentenary of the Authorised Version. Amidst the flood of literature on the subject of the Bible, it seemed but right that some statement, however plain and simple, should be set forth from the Catholic side, with the object of bringing home to the average mind the debt that Britain, in common with the rest of Christendom, owes to the Catholic Church in this connection.Henry G Graham

For nearly twenty centuries, the Roman Catholic Church withstood all the currents of change and history and maintained a closely guarded orthodoxy which has always served as the basis and center of all Christianity. Yet, it is as if all of that has been just arbitrarily swept away in the few years since Vatican II. Given what the Church has always taught about itself being indefectible, how could this have happened? Did that Council have something to do with that terrible loss of faith? Can the real Catholicism be found today, and if so, where? The shocking answer to this, once seen and truly understood, is as every bit as glorious as the original resurrection of Christ Himself, a tremendous source of faith and inspiration. It is a broad-based, longstanding miracle passing right before our eyes, have we but the Grace to see it for what it is.
Here are the classic reasons why the Protestant dogma of Sola Scriptura - "Scripture Alone" - is absolutely wrong, is unscriptural, man-made and prevents Protestants from ever having a firm doctrinal foundation. The book shows that: Christ gave us Tradition and the teaching authority of His Church; the first Christians did not have a complete Bible and Scripture itself states that it is insufficient of itself calling the Church and not the Bible "the pillar and ground of the truth."
By situating it in its historical and theological context, Translating Resurrection presents an original look at the fascinating but little-known debate between William Tyndale and George Joye about their beliefs concerning post-mortem existence at the beginning of the English Reformation.

While there is a growing awareness today that different people have different "love languages," what about God? What is his love language? What does God think of the kind of love we give Him? How often do we consider: How well am I loving God? This book explores answers to these important questions, examining the life and words of Jesus Christ—the example par excellence of how to love God. With a conversational style, fresh spiritual analogies, good humor, lessons from the author's journey, and a reliance on Scripture, Church teachings, and insights of the saints, this book aims to inspire readers to follow Paul's advice in Ephesians: to "learn what is pleasing to the Lord" (Eph 5:10). Loosely based on the Beatitudes, it presents eight "love languages" of God revealed in the life and teachings of his Son: trusting Him, spending time with Him, heeding Him, apologizing when we offend Him, loving his whole family, picking up our cross, following Him, and eagerly awaiting Him This work reveals that being a Christian is really all about a relationship—a relationship of love with Love Himself. It not only demonstrates how Jesus taught and lived out each expression of love for God, but also shows his great love for each of us, giving compelling motives to daily return his love.
