Classic Works on Human

Classic Works on Human Nature, Theology & Heaven ♦ THE IMMORTAL IN YOU How Human Nature is More Than Science Can Say Michael Augros Many scientists and philosophers believe that we are no more than a machine. There is no afterlife and our existence is purely the outcome of chance events. The core of this belief is a philosophical assumption that modern science tells all there is to know about us and the world. With cogency, clarity, and charm, Augros exposes that assumption to the light and demolishes it. He shows how an astute use of common sense and our common human experience reveal there is much more to us than science could possibly say. “A fascinating journey into the greatest thing in the universe: your nature and your destiny. Far and away the best book I have ever read about the nature of mankind.” — Peter Kreeft, Ph.D. Author, A Summa of the Summa “Augros gives us one of the finest maps I’ve seen, detailing how we can find reality and ourselves again.” — Benjamin Wiker, Ph.D. Author, In Defense of Nature IIY-P . . . Sewn Softcover, $18.95 ♦ GO TO HEAVEN A Spiritual Road Map to Eternity Fulton J. Sheen At his most penetrating, challenging, and illuminating best, Bishop Sheen breathes new meaning into the truths about heaven and hell, and new life into the concepts of faith, love, prayer, suffering, and death. A great spiritual teacher shows us the way to eternal happiness, encouraging us to choose the path to heaven now and avoid the deadly mistake of not taking the reality of hell seriously. “This little treasure is filled with Fulton Sheen’s wisdom and wit. Everyone who reads it will discover truths that are everlasting!” — Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, Author, Champions of the Rosary “What a gift this simple but profound road-map to heaven is. For anyone eager to find the way home, I beg you: pick this book up!” — Fr. John Riccardo, Author Heaven Starts Now: Becoming a Saint Day by Day GTH-P . . . Sewn Softcover, $16.95 www.ignatius.com ♦ THEOLOGY FOR BEGINNERS Frank Sheed The acclaimed apologist Sheed presents one of the most outstanding explanations of the central doctrines of the Christian faith ever written. He gives a compelling case for anyone to study theology, and the great rewards that accompany it. He brings a fresh approach to Christian doctrines with lucid, carefully reasoned prose. His beautiful and clear insights stir our minds to the inspiring truth of the spiritual realities at the center of human existence. “Sheed was a great apologist because he was such a clear writer. Through his crystalline words the Catholic Faith is seen as something not just true, but desirable.” —Karl Keating, Author, Catholicism and Fundamentalism “Sheed has done what very few can—bring the lofty mysteries of God down to the simplest of ears.” —Steve Ray, Author, Crossing the Tiber TBE-P . . .
