A Millennial in Paradise: Carlo Acutis
Author/Artist: CONQUER, WILL
ISBN-10: 1644134845
ISBN-13: 9781644134849
Publisher: Sophia Inst Press
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$34.95
Description: Carlo is a sign of contradiction in the modern world who serves as a heroic model for today’s young people—a teenager who programmed computers and enjoyed films and comics yet lived as an authentic and sincere disciple of Christ. In these pages, you’ll discover how he embraced the Faith as a boy and developed the virtues necessary to live a Christ-centered life in a secular society.

When he developed leukemia, he offered his suffering both for Pope Benedict XVI and for the Catholic Church, saying: “I offer all the suffering I will have to undergo for the Lord, for the Pope, and the Church.”

Benedict XVI: A Life: Volume One: Youth in Nazi Germany to the Second Vatican Council 1927-1965
Author/Artist: SEEWALD, PETER
ISBN-10: 1472979192
ISBN-13: 9781472979193
Publisher: Bloomsbury
Binding: HARDBACK
Price: AU$49.99
Description: Benedict XVI: Volume One offers insight into the young life and rise through the Church's ranks of a man who would become a hero and a lightning rod for Catholics the world over. Based on countless hours of interviews in Rome with Benedict himself, this much-anticipated two-volume biography is the definitive record of the life of Joseph Ratzinger and the legacy of Pope Benedict XVI.

Volume I follows the early life of the future Pope, from his days growing up in Germany and his conscription into the Hitler Youth during World War II to his career as an academic theologian and eventual Archbishop of Munich. Volume II, to be published in 2021, will cover his move to Rome under Pope John Paul II, his ascension to the papacy, and his controversial retirement and news-making statements under his successor, Pope Francis I.

This necessary companion to Benedict's own memoir, Last Testament, is the fullest account to date of the life of a radical Catholic leader who has continued to make news while cloistered in retirement in the Vatican gardens.

A History of the Bible
Author/Artist: BARTON, JOHN
ISBN-10: 0141978503
ISBN-13: 9780141978505
Publisher: Penguin Books
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$29.99
Description: The Bible is the central book in Western culture, yet extraordinarily there is no proper history of it. This exceptional work, by one of the world's leading Biblical scholars, provides a full account of how the different parts of the Bible came to be written; how some writings which were regarded as holy became canonical and were included in the Bible, and others were not; what the relationship is of the different parts of the Bible to each other; and how, once it became a stable text, the Bible has been disseminated and interpreted around the world. It gives full weight to discussion of the importance of the Tanakh (Old Testament) in Judaism as in Christianity.

It also demonstrates the degree to which, contrary to widespread belief, both Judaism and Christianity are not faiths drawn from the Bible texts but from other sources and traditions. It shows that if we are to regard the Bible as 'authoritative' it cannot be as believers have so often done in the past.

Description: On 26 May 2017, after a historic process of consultation, the Uluru Statement from the Heart was read out.
