Every disputed question in current theology begins or ends with some reference to christocentrism or the primacy of Christ, but rarely provides any clear definition of these terms, and even more rarely makes reference to the theologian, Bl. John Dunns Scotus, who was most responsible for the key to the correct understanding and use of this terminology. Here, for the first time in over half a century, in an English style accesible to the non-professional reader, we have an accurate detailed account of Scotus' explanation of this core theme on Christian thought, traditionally dubbed the Franciscan thesis, or the absolute, joint predestination of Jesus and Mary to be King and Queen of the universe.

This book is one of a series of Socratic explorations of some of the Great Books. The books in this series are intended to be short, clear, and non-technical, thus fully understandable by beginners. Through such Socratic dialogues, Peter Kreeft introduces (or reviews) the basic questions in the fundamental divisions of philosophy: metaphysics, epistemology, anthropology, ethics, logic, and method.

In Socrates Meets Sartre, Kreeft takes the reader through the world of existentialist philosophy, posing questions that challenge the concepts that Sartre proposed. Based on an imaginary dialogue between Socrates and Sartre that takes place in the afterlife, this profound and witty book makes an entertaining and informative exploration of modern philosophy.

Here Peter Kreeft, one of the foremost students of Lewis' thought, distills Lewis' reflections on the collapse of western civilization and the way to renew it. Kreeft shows that Lewis, and particularly Lewis' book The Abolition of Man , offer deeply prophetic words for our time. Using this major work of Lewis as the focus of his book, Kreeft summarizes Lewis' philosophy of history and evaluates our era from that standpoint; gives a defense of the Natural Law (or objective values) as the absolute sine qua non for the survival of civilization; summarizes Lewis' refutation of twenty alternatives to it; and then fleshes out Lewis' hopeful conclusion in The Abolition of Man , a conclusion that gives a new and humane world view for mankind. Kreeft's reflections on Lewis' thought provide profound explorations into the single most momentous question of our desperate times

``Don't read good books--read the best books," is what a nun taught Fr. Rawley Myers as a youth. Thus, he has gathered together in this very unique volume a reading for each day of the year from some of the greatest Catholic books and writers in Church history, many in this century.

Myers taps into the rich treasury of outstanding Catholic literature, often neglected in today's busy world, and he provides a wonderful selection of thoughts and meditations that are both intellectually stimulating and spiritually rewarding. Drawing on the writings of thirty-four famous Catholic authors, this book ranges from the thoughts of Doctors of the Church like Saint Augustine, Saint Teresa of Avila and Saint Thomas Aquinas, to classic authors like Saint Francis de Sales, Thomas à Kempis, and Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, to popular 20th century spiritual guides like Bishop Fulton Sheen, Thomas Merton and Romano Guardini and, finally, the writings of a group of famous modern converts like G. K. Chesterton, Hilaire Belloc, Ronald Knox and John Henry Newman. They enlighten our minds, inflame our hearts and strengthen our souls with selections that are easily digestible and whet the appetite for more of the impressive heritage of Catholic theological and philosophical reflection.
