Author: Peter Kreeft
Publisher: InterVarsity Press
Peter Kreeft invites seekers to accompany Socrates on the search for truth.

In classic Kreeftian style, this narrative entertains even as it provides a convincing apologetic.
The Story of the First American Style Campus in Europe
Author: Pablo Campos Calvo-Sotelo
Publisher: Nova Publishers
In 1927, a group of advisors of King Alfonso XIII of Spain set off a journey to the United States. Their aim was to study the American University as a model for the design of the new University City in Madrid. Using the reconstruction of this cultural event as a guiding thread metaphor, the purpose of the Research Project is to study the roots and historical transformations that the University Space has experimented since its origins, under the impulse of Utopia, making special emphasis in its relation to the City. It will focus on the evolution of essential architectural models, beginning from its medieval germ in Europe: the exodus of the 'seed' of its embodied soul (the quadrangle) to the New World, the birth and diversification of the new model (campus) and, finally, in the early twentieth century, the 'return trip' to Europe of the modern idea, and the prolific heritage that it has generated in the contemporary University since then, from the point of view of the cultural connection between the Unites States and Europe.

The journey for many first-century believers was difficult because they had not fully grasped the magnitude of this new covenant relationship with Jesus Christ. The book of Hebrews was written for these new believers to help them understand that Jesus is their High Priest and that he and he alone can strengthen them for the journey of life. Jeff Snell has written a faith-building study from the book of Hebrews to remind us that Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Hebrews affirms that Jesus is able to strengthen us for the journey through this life and throughout eternity. Book jacket.
A Roadmap to Self-Discovery and Acceptance
Author: Julie Fuimano
Publisher: Nurturing Your Success Publications
Success coach Julie Fuimano began her quest for self-development in her teens, as many do. She asked herself the same universal questions: Who am I?, Why am I here?, and What am I supposed to do with my life? After spending years looking outside herself for the answers, she realized that only by looking within to get to know and accept who she is would the answers then be revealed. That was the first step in her journey to self-discovery and acceptance. Inspired to help others create the same meaning in their own lives, she wrote The Journey Called YOU: A Roadmap to Self-Discovery and Acceptance. It teaches the importance of learning how to reveal the essence of who you are so you can more deeply enjoy the unique gifts you have been given.

Publisher: Hackett Publishing
The Hackett edition of this classic of medieval philosophy and mysticism--a plan of pilgrimage for the learned Franciscan wishing to reach the apex of the mystical experience--combines the highly regarded Boehner translation with a new introduction by Stephen Brown focusing on St. Francis as a model of the contemplative life, the meaning of the Itinerarium, its place in Bonaventure's mystical theology, and the plan of the work.

Here is “a rich and lyrical masterpiece”–notes Peter Constantine–the first translation of a lost treasure by acclaimed author H. G. Adler, a survivor of Theresienstadt and Auschwitz. Written in 1950, after Adler’s emigration to England, The Journey was ignored by large publishing houses after the war and not released in Germany until 1962. Depicting the Holocaust in a unique and deeply moving way, and avoiding specific mention of country or camps–even of Nazis and Jews–The Journey is a poetic nightmare of a family’s ordeal and one member’s survival. Led by the doctor patriarch Leopold, the Lustig family finds itself “forbidden” to live, enduring in a world in which “everyone was crazy, and once they finally recognized what was happening it was too late.” Linked by its innovative style to the work of James Joyce and Virginia Woolf, The Journey portrays the unimaginable in a way that anyone interested in recent history and modern literature must read. From the Trade Paperback edition.
