You think you know about Christianity, but did you know…
• God likes “organized religion”; it’s clear from both the New and Old Testaments
• Christians have always believed that men and women are equal
• The correct pronoun for angels is “he”
• Science was stillborn everywhere outside the Christian West
• Christianity, which first taught the world to value victims, is now the victim of a victimhood culture
• Many “miracles” are actually historical facts
• Famous atheists haven’t been disinterested seekers of truth, but indiviudals with “issues” of their own
• Planned Parenthood kills more people every six days than the Spanish Inquisition killed in 350 years
Michael Foley is an associate professor of patristics in the Great Texts Program at Baylor University. He is also the author of Drinking with the Saints: The Sinner’s Guide to a Holy Happy Hour.

Humble Roots: How Humility Grounds and Nourishes Your Soul by Hannah Anderson

English | October 4th, 2016 | ASIN: B01BL30HJS, ISBN: 0802414591 | 207 pages | EPUB | 4.01 MB

Feeling worn thin? Come find rest. The Blue Ridge Parkway meanders through miles of rolling Virginia mountains. It’s a route made famous by natural beauty and the simple rhythms of rural life.
And it’s in this setting that Hannah Anderson began her exploration of what it means to pursue a life of peace and humility. Fighting back her own sense of restlessness and anxiety, she finds herself immersed in the world outside, discovering a classroom full of forsythia, milkweed, and a failed herb garden. Lessons about soil preparation, sour mulch, and grapevine blights reveal the truth about our dependence on God, finding rest, and fighting discontentment.
Humble Roots is part theology of incarnation and part stroll through the fields and forest. Anchored in the teaching of Jesus, Anderson explores how cultivating humility—not scheduling, strict boundaries, or increased productivity—leads to peace. “Come unto me, all who labor and are heavy laden,” Jesus invites us, “and you will find rest for your souls.”
So come. Learn humility from the lilies of the field and from the One who is humility Himself. Remember who you are and Who you are not, and rediscover the rest that comes from belonging to Him.

Singing Jeremiah: Music and Meaning in Holy Week (Music and the Early Modern Imagination) by Robert L. Kendrick

2014 | ISBN: 0253011566 | English | 352 pages | PDF | 6 MB

A defining moment in Catholic life in early modern Europe, Holy Week brought together the faithful to commemorate the passion, crucifixion, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. In this study of ritual and music, Robert L. Kendrick investigates the impact of the music used during the Paschal Triduum on European cultures during the mid-16th century, when devotional trends surrounding liturgical music were established; through the 17th century, which saw the diffusion of the repertory at the height of the Catholic Reformation; and finally into the early 18th century, when a change in aesthetics led to an eventual decline of its importance. By considering such issues as stylistic traditions, trends in scriptural exegesis, performance space, and customs of meditation and expression, Kendrick enables us to imagine the music in the places where it was performed.
