At a time when religion and spirituality have been divorced from one another and morality and ethics are viewed as being confining rather than liberating, Fr. James Keenan has developed a new edition to his beloved book Moral Wisdom. There are new discussions of social sin and Pope Benedict XVI's encyclical Caritas in Veritate, a clearer exploration of Jesus in the New Testament, and new study questions at the end of each chapter. 'Moral wisdom, ' as Fr. Keenan calls it, is the distinctive gift of the Catholic tradition, a gift that helps us discern what values to pursue and which virtues to embody on the path to becoming who we really are and who God calls us to be. Fr. Keenan uses a conversational style filled with stories and examples to open the treasure trove of resources in the Catholic tradition for developing moral wisdom. He lifts up the lessons on love, conscience, sin, and suffering, helping readers connect with the formative influences of the Catholic heritage and appreciate what gives meaning to our lives and what enhances our relationships with friends and family

Now, available for the first time together in a single volume: a digital-only, value-priced bundle edition of the first three books in the Gideon Crew series: Gideon's Sword, Gideon's Corpse, and The Lost Island, by #1 New York Times bestselling authors Preston & Child. GIDEON'S SWORD:At twelve, Gideon Crew witnessed his father, a world-class mathematician, accused of treason and gunned down. At twenty-four, summoned to his dying mother's bedside, Gideon learned the truth: His father was framed and deliberately slaughtered. With her last breath, she begged her son to avenge him. Now, with a new purpose in his life, Gideon crafts a one-time mission of vengeance, aimed at the perpetrator of his father's destruction. His plan is meticulous, spectacular, and successful. But from the shadows, someone is watching. A very powerful someone, who is impressed by Gideon's special skills. Someone who has need of just such a renegade. For Gideon, this operation may be only the beginning... GIDEON'S CORPSE:A top nuclear scientist goes mad and takes an innocent family hostage at gunpoint, killing one and causing a massive standoff. A plume of radiation above New York City leads to a warehouse where, it seems, a powerful nuclear bomb was assembled just hours before. Sifting through the evidence, authorities determine that the unthinkable is about to happen: in ten days, a major American city will be vaporized by a terrorist attack. Ten days. And Gideon Crew, tracking the mysterious terrorist cell from the suburbs of New York to the mountains of New Mexico, learns the end may be something worse--far worse--than mere Armageddon. THE LOST ISLAND:Brilliant scientist and master thief Gideon Crew is living on borrowed time when he is tasked by his mysterious employer, Eli Glinn, to steal a page from the priceless Book of Kells, now on display in New York City and protected by unbreakable security. Gideon gets the parchment-only to learn that hidden beneath the illuminated image is a treasure map dating back to the ancient Greeks. As they ponder the strange map, they realize that the treasure it leads to is no ordinary fortune. It is something far more precious: an amazing discovery that could perhaps even save Gideon's life. Together with his new partner, Amy, Gideon follows a trail of cryptic clues to an unknown island in a remote corner of the Caribbean Sea. There, off the hostile and desolate Mosquito Coast, the pair discover the extraordinary treasure they are hunting conceals an even greater shock-a revelation so profound that it may benefit the entire human race . . . if Gideon and Amy can survive.

After more than 40 years of working with, studying and experimenting with training and behavioral methods and techniques involving canines, I felt compelled to present this short version of the most successful ways for any dog owner to quickly and easily bring his own canine family member to a highly appreciated level of acceptance of peaceful existence in a human environment. Over the years, I have opened many books, looking for useful information, and closed it in disappointment. What I found in most instances, was a so-called dog expert, who had written 200 pages of his/her experiences with 1 or 2 of their personal dogs. My book addresses practically every negative issue that we humans have with dogs in our attempt to live with and love a new canine addition to our families. I avoided showing photos that would tend to focus the readers on the training aspect of working with dogs, over gaining a sound understanding of how canines think and function within their own society. I want the readers to develop their own styles in the application of my proven methods. The end result will be that you will have an AMAZING dog. One that is so well-behaved, intelligent, happy and complimented by anyone who has an opportunity to meet him/her. You can't help but love and cherish an animal like that. Finally, I am going to give every dog owner some words that they need to hear. Get yourself a Bible. Go to Psalm 36:6. Says that God "Cares for people and animals Alike". It means to me that its alright for us to truly show love and affection to our canine son or daughter as we do our own. When you look into the eyes of your canine, you will see the love and appreciation that they have for you. Canines and humans have a long history of togetherness. Using my methods, you can have that ultimate experience too.
