The full text, with commentary, of Pope Francis's Apostolic Exhortation Gaudate et Exsultate. In his new apostolic exhortation, Pope Francis offers an inspiring reminder of the universal call to holiness and a practical guide about how to pursue it. While we draw inspiration from the official saints of the church, it falls to each believer to "discern his or her own path . . . rather than hopelessly trying to imitate something not meant for them." This is the mission that confronts each Christian: to discover and live out "the message that God wants to speak to the world" by our lives. In his typical fashion, Pope Francis uses his theme to address dangers in the Church, particularly in those who would transform the Church "into a museum piece or the possession of a select few." The true path to holiness, he notes, was offered by Christ in the Beatitudes: a virtual "identity card" for Christians. In clear and challenging terms he applies these Gospel values to the challenges of our world. This edition includes reflections by Robert Ellsberg, Publisher of Orbis Books and author of The Saints' Guide to Happiness and James Martin, SJ, author of My Life with the Saints.

The Lucifer Priciple is a revolutionary work that explores the intricate relationships among genetics, human behavior, and culture to put forth the thesis that “evil” is a by-product of nature’s strategies for creation and that it is woven into our most basic biological fabric. In a sweeping narrative that moves lucidly among sophisticated scientific disciplines and covers the entire span of the earth’s, as well as mankind’s, history, Howard Bloom challenges some of our most popular scientific assumptions. Drawing on evidence from studies of the most primitive organisms to those on ants, apes, and humankind, the author makes a persuasive case that it is the group, or “superorganism,” rather than the lone individual that really matters in the evolutionary struggle. But, Bloom asserts, the prominence of society and culture does not necessarily mitigate against our most violent, aggressive instincts. In fact, under the right circumstances the mentality of the group will only amplify our most primitive and deadly urges. In Bloom’s most daring contention he draws an analogy between the biological material whose primordial multiplication began life on earth and the ideas, or “memes,” that define, give cohesion to, and justify human superorganisms. Some of the most familiar memes are utopian in nature—Christianity or Marxism; nonetheless, these are fueled by the biological impulse to climb to the top of the heirarchy. With the meme’s insatiable hunger to enlarge itself, we have a precise prescription for war. Biology is not destiny; but human culture is not always the buffer to our most primitive instincts we would like to think it is. In these complex threads of thought lies the Lucifer Principle, and only through understanding its mandates will we able to avoid the nuclear crusades that await us in the twenty-first century.

The story of a significant British church leader who fought for justice and freedom during World War II It was to George Bell, an English bishop, that Dietrich Bonhoeffer sent his last words before he was executed at the Flossenbürg concentration camp in April 1945. Why he did so becomes clear from Andrew Chandler's new biography of George Kennedy Allen Bell (1883–1958). As he traces the arc of Bell's life, Chandler reshapes our perspective on Bonhoeffer's life and times. In addition to serving as bishop of Chichester, Bell was an internationalist and ecumenical leader, one of the great Christian humanists of the twentieth century, a tenacious critic of the obliteration bombing of enemy cities during World War II, and a key ally of those who struggled for years to resist Hitler in Germany itself. This inspiring biography raises important questions that still haunt the moral imagination today: When should the word of protest be spoken? When should nations go to war, and how should they fight? What are our obligations to the victims of dictators and international conflict?
