Title: Why the Church
Author: Luigi Giussani
ISBN: 0773517073
Price: 22.95
Publisher: Mcgill Queens University Press
Publication Date: March 2001
Format: Paperback
Pages: 288
Description:
From its beginnings, the Church has presented itself as a human phenomenon that carries the divine within it. As a social fact, its reality given form by men and women, the Church has always affirmed that its existence surpasses the human reality of its components and that it stands as the continuation of the event of Christ's entry into human history. "Why the Church?", the final volume in McGill-Queen's University Press's trilogy of Luigi Giussani's writings, explores the Church's definition of itself as both human and divine and evaluates the truth of this claim. Giussani begins by focusing on the Church as a community composed of people who are aware of themselves as defined by the gift of the Spirit, from which they derive a new conception of existence, the fruit of conversion. He then describes the Church's developing self-awareness of its dual elements of the human and divine. Concerned More...
Title: The Origin of the Christian Claim
Author: Luigi Giussani
ISBN: 0773516271
Price: 19.95
Publisher: Mcgill Queens University Press
Publication Date: January 1, 1998
Format: Paperback
Pages: 144
Description:
In this inquiry into Christ's Incarnation, Luigi Giussani examines Christ's "claim" to identify himself with the mystery that is the ultimate answer to our search for the meaning of existence. Giussani argues that if we accept the hypothesis that the mystery entered the realm of human existence and spoke in human terms, the relationship between the individual and God is no longer based on a moral, imaginative, or aesthetic human effort but instead on coming upon an event in one's life. Thus the religious method is overturned by Christ: in Christianity it is no longer the person who seeks to know the mystery but the mystery that makes himself known by entering history. At the Origin of the Christian Claim presents an intriguing argument supported with ample documentation from the gospels and other theological writings.

ISBN: 978082451899
Price: 16.95
Publisher: Crossroads Publishing
Publication Date: August 2001
Format: Trade Paperback
Pages: 144
Description:
The fundamental idea in the education of the young is the fact that it is through the younger generations that society successively rebuilds itself; therefore, the primary concern of society is to teach the young. What does education consist of, and how does it take place? The Risk of Education explores what is at our origins as human beings. It presents the argument that without the fundamental factors of tradition00something lived out in the present that proposes and gives its reasons--and criticism--asking yourself why?--the young person is merely a fragile leaf separated from its branch.
Title: Journey to Truth is an Experience

Price: 19.95
Publisher: McGill-Queen's University Press
Publication Date: October 12, 2006
Format: Trade Paperback
Pages: 160
Description:
As a young priest, Luigi Giussani was troubled by Catholicism's inability to effectively deal with secularism or laicism. In 1954 he began to develop a vision of faith rooted in experience. His ideas resonated with students and led to the birth of the Gioventù Studentesca (Student Youth) movement. Known today as Communion and Liberation, the movement is flourishing in Italy and around the world, including Canada, the United States, Brazil, Uganda, and Britain. The Journey to Truth Is an Experience is the first English translation of Il Cammino al vero è un'esperienza, Giussani's early works on the Christian experience, written from 1959-64. It begins with a guide on how to live the Christian life within the Student Youth community, followed by a call to base one's relationship with Christ on the example set by the apostles and other figures in the New Testament. Giussani concludes by outlining the movement's mission and More...
Title: Generating Traces in the History of the World
Author: Luigi Giussani
ISBN: 978077353768
Price: 19.95
Publisher: McGill-Queen's University Press
Publication Date: September 30, 2010
Format: Trade Paperback
Pages: 184
Description:
Generating Traces in the History of the World is a synthesis of Monsignor Luigi Giussani's reflection on the Christian experience. His exploration of Christianity as an unforeseen and unforeseeable event in which the mystery became a man reveals how, by acknowledging this fact, an individual is simultaneously able to use reason and be moved by affection. Discussing the ways in which Christ continues to be present in history through the companionship of those whom He joins to himself in Baptism, Giussani illuminates how a sense of Christ's mercy can overcome negativity and encourage a useful life. A profound and moving work, Generating Traces in the History of the World will interest all those who have been inspired by Giussani's thought.
