An examination of the relationship between faith in God and the concept of ecological care within a crisis of biodiversity
San Francisco de Asís es probablemente una de las figuras que mejor han encarnado y concretado los valores esenciales de la espiritualidad y la realización humanas. Por eso se ha convertido en un símbolo de la paz. Su célebre «Oración por la Paz» constituye una síntesis y una llamada. Cada una de sus frases merece ser meditada en profundidad para que su comprensión haga de nuestra petición una expresión verdadera de nuestro deseo de paz. En estas páginas, LEONARDO BOFF, franciscano de origen y de corazón, traslada la Oración de San Francisco al mundo actual, ayudándonos a asimilar su mensaje, pronunciado a través de los siglos por todos los pueblos y credos, para convertirnos en auténticos instrumentos de la paz. Después de leer este libro, cada vez que recitemos la Oración de San Francisco, su expresión habrá quedado enriquecida y fecundada por la comprensión del texto.
"Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred let me sow love, Where there is injury, pardon . . . For it is in giving that we receive, It is in pardoning that we are pardoned And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life". This famous prayer, traditionally attributed to Saint Francis, has traveled the world, winning hearts and inspiring minds with its simple and persuasive witness to the power of unconditional love. As Leonardo Boff shows in his moving reflections, this love not only brings each person the promise of eternal salvation, but also provides the basis for social peace, redeems the world, and constitutes the hidden meaning of the universe.
Contains writings from three different stages of Cardinal Walter Kasper’s theological journey. They seek to open up the gospel of Jesus Christ in a way that is intelligible to today’s readers. The works are: “An Introduction to the Faith,” “Surpassing All Knowledge,” and an original essay on evangelization, “New Evangelization as a Theological, Pastoral, and Spiritual Challenge.”
Startling new archaeological discoveries and such groundbreaking cultural phenomena as The Da Vinci Code and The Passion of the Christ have sparked a renaissance in impassioned controversies about religion and the life of Christ. Now, Sylvia Browne, with the help of her spiritual guide, delivers the truth about Him, His teachings, and His works for God as she answers such provocative questions as: - Was there a virgin birth? - Was there a Star of Bethlehem? - What did Jesus do for the first 30 years of his life? - What really happened at the crucifixion? - Was he married? Was he divine? - Is a Jesus lineage a possibility? In Browne's own words, the answers may "rattle the cages" of her millions of readers-answers that could only have come from someone who has visited the afterlife.

The wood. The thorns. The nails. Christ's sacrifice has defined the very essence of mankind's faith for the past 2000 years. And now, Max Lucado invites you to examine the cross, contemplate its purpose, and celebrate its significance with He Chose the Nails. With his warm, caring style, Max examines the symbols surrounding Christ's crucifixion, revealing the claims of the cross and asserting that if they are true, then Christianity itself is true. The supporting evidence either makes the cross the single biggest hoax of all time, or the hope of all humanity
