In Housing Heaven's Fire, author John Haughey, S.J., offers sharp insights into the nature of holiness and shares his personal efforts to respond to the challenge of holiness. Drawing on his extensive knowledge of Scripture, theology, philosophy, and literature, Haughey projects a prismatic view of the many facets of holiness.^In this intellectually challenging and personally inviting exploration, Haughey examines holiness from the perspective of the Hebrew Scripture of the Old Testament, the Israelites and their call, Jesus and his humanity, and St. Paul. He explains that while holiness is a gift that we have already been given, it is also a goal that we are striving toward.
A first-hand account of religious oppression in Communist China from a Catholic priest imprisoned there for more than 25 years.
Bamboo Swaying in the Wind reveals the extraordinary life story of Chinese Jesuit George Bernard Wong, who was imprisoned in China for more than twenty-five years for his religious beliefs. Through the story of his remarkable life and enduring faith, Wong offers readers spiritual and human insights that can only come from one who has lived such a life.^^Much of Wong's story remained blocked from his memory until recent, gentle talks with coauthor Claudia Devaux drew it out. Set in a broader cultural context, the narrative allows readers to appreciate this unique personal account of how one man bridged East and West to live out his Jesuit vocation and serve Chinese Christians in our time.
