A search for solitude : pursuing the monk's true life by Thomas Merton( Book )

10 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and held by 748 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Merton's private writing combines a poet's eye for the beauty of nature - in the woods and fields of the Abbey - as well as a fiction writer's instinct for the idiosyncracies of his brethren, the rhythms and tediums of regular observance, the strengths of the monastery and its weaknesses. It is, however, Merton's restless, compelling, unvarnished reflections on the question of what it means to be a monk in his own time that gives this journal its most lasting value, paying homage to monasticism and instructing all who value the contemplative life

An introduction to Catholicism by Lawrence Cunningham( Book )

This account goes back to the early Christian creeds to uncover the roots of modern Catholic thinking. It avoids theological technicalities, and throws light on aspects of the Church's institutional structure and liturgical practice that even Catholics can find baffling: Why go to confession? How are people made saints? What is 'infallible' about the Pope?--P. [4] of cover

Francis of Assisi : performing the Gospel life by Lawrence Cunningham( Book )

5 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher's description: Francis of Assisi is counted among the most important personalities of history. The life and ideals of this humble, semiliterate medieval friar have had a shaping influence on the Christian church that has spilled over into Western culture at large. This biography by Lawrence Cunningham looks anew at Francis₂s life and legacy, seeking to counter efforts to romanticize him yet without diminishing his deep piety or abiding significance. Pursuing a realistic view of the saint, Cunningham argues against common stereotypes that sentimentalize Francis as a "blesser of animals", as a "church rebel", or as a precursor of the "spirituality" movement. According to Cunningham, really seeing Francis requires the lens of theology rather than the lens of quaint spirituality so often used. Francis was a devotedly orthodox Catholic whose life must be understood as a response to reforming elements abroad in the church of his day. Francis's originality derived from his success in articulating the 'ideal gospel life': his message and actions were a kind of 'acting out' of the scriptures. Imbued with peerless scholarship, this book is also charmingly written. Cunningham is a master storyteller as well as a brilliant biographer-qualities that his Francis of Assisi fully displays. It will at once inform and delight anyone interested in the fascinating life of Francis or his impact on church history
The Catholic faith : an introduction by Lawrence Cunningham( Book )

5 editions published between 1987 and 1997 in English and Spanish and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[In this book,] you will begin by looking at how humans have searched from the beginning of time for the ultimate reality who is the source of their lives and the goal for which they strive ... Next you will examine Jesus' message, his "good news" that God loves all of us, especially those who are poor or oppressed. You will ponder on the ... Catholic belief in life after death, and see how the road to such eternal happiness is one of love - love of God, neighbor and self. Midway through your journey, you will discover the Spirit of Jesus, the Spirit whom he promised to send to each of us, the Comforter whom he promised would be with us all days. You will also explore how the Church, a community that struggles to follow Jesus' teachings and example, works to carry on his mission of service ... The seven sacraments are places where Catholics uniquely meet up with Jesus Christ. [The] search will close where it began with a look at people's efforts to reach out to God. The final chapter will address prayer, the lifting up of the mind and heart to God, and the listening to God's self-revelation.-Introd
