The Soul of a Lion: The life of Dietrich Von Hildebrand.
By Alice Von Hildebrand
Length: 322 pages, Sewn Softcover
Dietrich von Hildebrand, widely regarded as one of the great Catholic philosophers of the 20th century, is well-known for his numerous books, but, until this present work, not much has been known of his remarkable and inspiring life. Written by his wife, Alice, also a highly respected Catholic thinker, this is a fascinating, moving and, at times, gripping account of a truly great man of the Church who suffered much for the faith.

Based on a very long “letter” Dietrich wrote to his wife late in his life, it tells his story from his glorious youth with a unique intellectual and cultural formation, his coversion to Catholisism, his great passion for truth and beauty, his extensive writing on Christian philosophy and theology, and his steadfast, determined opposition to Nazism that made him a marked man who miraculously escaped execution. A powerful biography of a relentless fighter against injustice, a devoted son of the Church, a man who had the “soul of a lion”. Illustrated.

“A man whose life and work have left an indelible mark on the history of the Church in the 20th century. Alice von Hildebrand has done a great service in giving us this fascinating portrait of his extraordinary and inspiring life.” —Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger

Pope Pius VII (1800-1823).
By Prof. Robin Anderson
The French Revolution had wrought religious and civil havoc in France and the Italian states. Thousands of French priests had been killed or deported; other priests and bishops were forming a schismatic national Church; the previous Pope had been kidnapped and had died in exile. Catholics were losing the Faith and adopting an attitude of resistance to all authority.

This was the beginning of the reign of Pope Pius VII (1800-1823)--one of the most difficult and confusing eras in Catholic history. At this time the military genius Napoleon Bonaparte was rising to power--a man of almost unbounded ambition. It was Pius VII's task to deal with this man, grateful for the strength he provided in a disintegrating world, yet careful to avoid getting swallowed up by his demands and ambitions.

In addition to examining the drama between Pope and Emperor, Professor Anderson also goes into many other high points of that eventful period: the restoration of the Jesuits, the Catholic Emancipation in England and Ireland, St. Gaspar del Bufalo's conversion of the bandits infesting the hills of Rome, and much more, plus--on the negative side--the workings of Jansenism, Gallicanism, Josephism and Regalism--all various forms of Liberalism.

This absorbing history will fascinate and inform anyone who wants to witness the Church's response to French Revolutionary forces and to understand Liberalism at work in its early days. Moreover, it gives an understanding of one of the most famous Popes in history, as well as an appreciation for Christ's protection of His Church through some of the most difficult times she has ever faced. For Pius VII outlived Napoleon and most of the Church's enemies--though unfortunately not Liberalism, which has perdured into our own time as a malignant growth in the bosom of society.

Life is a Blessing, A Biography of Jérôme Lejeune (Geneticist, Doctor & Father).
By Clara Lejeune
Length: 160 pages, paperback
Jerome Lejeune was one of the most highly regarded geneticists of modern times. He discovered numerous sicknesses of genetic origin, of which Down Syndrome (Trisomy 21) is the best known, and he was an ardent defender of the handicapped and of the unborn.

His daughter Clara presents here the private man: the happy father of a family, surrounded by children and grandchildren, a great Christian marked by a radiant faith, a man of culture inspired with a great sense of humor, but above all a man of courage and of great relevance who would become involved in causes that would transform his life into a destiny.

“This engaging book shows that Jerome Lejeune, the most renowned geneticist in the world, drew his strength from faith and family.” —Charles E. Rice, University of Notre Dame
