God created this world to be a home for his children--a pilgrim-home but a home nonetheless. In other words, this creation is not our final and definitive home, since only in the innermost bosom of the Trinity will we find complete and definitive rest and perfect consummation. And yet this home of the Trinity's love and embrace is really and truly communicated to us in and through the beauty of created reality, such that this temporal world already in some way becomes a true dwelling-place, and not merely a land of exile and pilgrimage. Perhaps the central drama of our human existence in this fallen world is that creation is always both simultaneously: a home and a land of journeying, a garden dwelling-place and a desert of exile.But it will not always be this way. For the very material creation in which we find ourselves shares in our eternal destiny, our destiny to participate in the innermost life and love of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. And insofar as it does so already, insofar as we encounter God already in the contours of time and space, these very contours become an expression of, and a foretaste of, our eternal homeland. In moments such as this, in which our heart is ravished by the glimpse of divine beauty touching us through created beauty, and cradling us through the goodness of reality that God himself has made, we experience eternity intersecting time. Indeed, we experience how this world--yes, this very imperfect and fallen world, marred by sin, strife, and division--is destined to be our eternal homeland, the living-space in which we dwell in intimacy with God, just as Adam and Eve experienced intimacy with God in the beginning in paradise, in which God himself walked familiarly with his children among the trees of the garden.Even if the creation apart from God is nothing, it is nonetheless true that God willed it to be something, and to be something very significant and full of eternal meaning. Yes, the creation itself has an absolute meaning in the plan of God, manifesting as it does God's own absolute value as pure and everlasting Love and Intimacy. And this is true in the highest way of each human person, who beyond all other creatures was created, as Vatican II says, "for his own sake" (Gaudium et spes, 22). The absolute value and dignity of every person is a reflection of and a participation in the absoluteness of God's own personal being, since it is rooted in his own singular love for them, in which he has known, willed, loved, and delighted in them from the bosom of his own eternity, and from this eternity brought them into being, and into this eternity seeks to draw them again. And in and through the human person, the whole of the impersonal creation is also drawn to its definitive fulfillment and consummation, since it is destined to share in the everlasting intimacy that God has chosen to have with his children, adopting them, in the beloved Son, into the innermost recesses of his own divine life.If this is true, then our gift and task within this world is not merely to flee from the world, from anything that might distract our attention from the heaven that awaits us, but also to seek to make contact, within the visible creation while also stretching beyond it, with the eternal renewal of all things that awaits us at the end of time. In other words, it is not only to journey on pilgrimage through this fallen world towards heaven, but also to let heaven become incarnate, even if imperfectly, within this world. After all, when Christ came into this world he brought heaven to earth. In him eternity entered into time, and the everlasting bliss of the Trinity kissed our fractured and yet beautiful earth. And through his Paschal Mystery--his Passion and Resurrection--Christ has spanned the distance created by sin and has woven all together again in a seamless fabric within the sinews of his own reconciling Heart.

In this candid and vulnerable memoir, Kim Zember exposes details of her life that many wouldn’t dare to admit, let alone publish. Her desires for women, money, and comfort lead her down a path far from that of her Christian upbringing. Her impulsive lifestyle, coupled with an underlying fear of being alone, constantly drive her to drown out the small whisper of God she hears in moments of silence and stillness. Torn by her desires, she lives a double life, jumping back and forth from husband to girlfriends, drunken nights to morning church, Southern California real estate to nonprofit work in Ethiopia. These pages of conflict, questioning, and seeking embody the struggle of a human soul. Yet even out of the darkest moments, love breaks through in radical ways and carries her into her God-given purpose, into serving others, into joy. Kim’s transparency about her life offers encouragement to those seeking peace and joy for their own restless hearts. In the end, love wins.

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Tami Hoag comes a special edition featuring two of her romantic classics in one irresistible volume. This unforgettable pair of novels is sure to excite the lover and thrill the romantic in every reader. Tempestuous Alexandra Gianni had come to Briarwood with her infant daughter, Isabella, to start over. Determined to rebuild her life and the ramshackle farm she’d purchased with the last of her money, Alex had one goal: independence. She wasn’t looking for another relationship or the painful revelations she’d have to share about her past. Most of all, she wasn’t looking for a man like Christian Atherton, who could lead her dangerously astray. But the handsome, aristocratic English rider won’t accept that it’s too late for Alex or that she has to keep running…from her past and him. Restless Heart As a world-renowned globe-trotting photographer, Danielle Hamilton was at home with Tibetan nomads and Kenyan bushmen. But she didn’t think she’d survive six weeks in the “wilds” of New Orleans babysitting her sister’s five children. Then help arrives in the form of the most unlikely nanny Danielle could imagine. Tall, dark, and Cajun, Remy Doucet isn’t really a nanny and he isn’t accepting Danielle’s certainty that true love isn’t in the cards for her. He’s convinced that her self-control masks a deeper need to let go, and he’s determined to prove she could trust him with the memory of a tragedy that still haunts her dreams. From the Trade Paperback edition.

HIS RESTLESS HEART BEAT TO A RHYTHM OF ITS OWN— a rhythm that had once been so prevalent in the core of his soul, but had long been lost under the thick layers of routine, expectation, and responsibility created by a quiet, civilized life. Konrad Quintero de Leon, a young American man, having just returned home to New York after his schooling at Oxford University, decides to venture west to rediscover that lost rhythm and peel off the layers that have muffled it for so long. Set in the 1840s, some of America's most restless years, Konrad begins an endless journey in search of his own "manifest destiny." He embarks on a westward expedition with the famous explorer John C. Fremont and legendary mountain man Kit Carson. He roams the wild Texas frontier with the Texas Rangers and fights in the bloody Battle of Monterrey under the command of General Zachary Taylor. But the life of a restless wanderer is not an easy one, as Konrad discovers when he falls in love with the beautiful and exciting Anastasia Carriere—the fiancée of another man. He is cast into a desperate battle where he must choose between the woman he loves and the adventure that he craves.
