The Bible was written for people to read, ponder, and understand. The message of God's love for humans transcends time, culture, and language. Nevertheless, readers of the Bible are often left with questions. The names sound strange to our ears, the geography is often unfamiliar, and we ask, "Who was this person? Is he mentioned somewhere else in the Bible?" "When did this happen?" "Where did it happen?" "Is this a real city?" Nelson's Foundational Bible Dictionary seeks to answer questions like these and many more. Features include: Every person mentioned in the Bible with biblical references and biographical information All animals and minerals mentioned in the Bible with definitions Modern equivalents of ancient geographical names Key theological terms with their various meanings and interpretations Common household items and occupations with cultural and historical information about life in ancient times In addition to the full Dictionary materials, the eBook version of Nelson’s Foundational Bible Dictionary also contains an appendix of the full text of the New King James Version Bible. All verse references in the Dictionary are linked to that verse in the Bible so that you can easily navigate between the Dictionary and Bible text.
The writings of the Fathers of the Church have never been more widely available, yet obtaining an exhaustive and user-friendly volume of patristics can still be a daunting task. Without realizing it, many priests, seminarians, members of religious communities, and even laity already own a patristic library-their Liturgy of the Hours. In the four volumes of the Liturgy of the Hours, the official daily prayer of the Catholic Church, there are nearly 600 selections from the writings of Fathers and saints. Seeing the potential of this vast collection as a theological resource, Milton Walsh has organized these selections by topics according to the four pillars of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. This topical concordance allows the reader to compare what the various authors have written on the same themes, while a chronological timeline of the readings shows their relationship to each other in time. Walsh has also provided background on the liturgical celebrations of the Church, as well as historical information on each author. In addition, there is a chapter on how patristic readings can assist in understanding the Bible. This fresh and original presentation of material that is literally at the fingertips of anyone praying the Liturgy of the Hours can be a tremendous aid to both religious devotion and theological study.

Saints of Augustine is one man's magical odyssey through the spiritual maze that is St. Augustine, Florida. From the Nombre de Dios Mission to St. Augustine Shores, our hero commits to a quest for his own sanity and discovers the hidden true nature of the oldest city in the continental United States. Suffering through a divorce, and beset by an ancient witch whose evil knows no bounds, he is tempted by the one true Fountain of Youth, and aided by saints previously unknown: a Chinese Jesuit automaton called "The Augbot"; a talking dog; a mysterious visitor from the future; a funeral director who re-animates the dead; and a sea-monster known only as Leviathan. Dennis J. Barton draws upon his experiences in the real St. Augustine to deliver a stunning portrayal of the spirits that inhabit the hidden spaces, the far-out possibilities, the secret beauties and dangers of a place rich in history and steeped in myth.
