Crer ou não Crer
Author: Pe. Fábio de Melo, Leandro Karnal
Publisher: Editora Planeta do Brasil
O que pode dizer um homem que fez o voto de se dedicar a Deus a outro que está plenamente convencido de que Deus não existe? O que pode ouvir um crente de um ateu? O que um ateu pode aprender? São questões assim que guiaram o encontro entre o padre Fábio de Melo e o historiador Leandro Karnal e resultaram neste livro. Um debate rico e respeitoso entre um cético e um católico que oferece uma referência importante aos brasileiros crentes e não crentes. Com coragem para provocar um ao outro e humildade para aceitar os argumentos, os autores discutiram pontos fundamentais, como se o mundo é melhor ou pior sem Deus e se a religião ajuda ou atrapalha. Questionaram o quanto a fé faz falta e discutiram as esperanças, os medos e a morte no horizonte de quem crê e quem não crê. Crer ou não crer é o resultado de muitas horas de conversa entre um dos padres mais amados do país com um dos mais populares historiadores. Uma obra que irá agradar e enriquecer milhões de leitores.
Your Mind Matters
Author: John Stott
Publisher: InterVarsity Press
"Knowledge is indispensable to Christian life and service," writes John Stott. "If we do not use the mind which God has given us, we condemn ourselves to spiritual superficiality." While Christians have had a long heritage of rigorous scholarship and careful thinking, some circles still view the intellect with suspicion or even as contradictory to Christian faith. And many non-Christians are quick to label Christians as anti-intellectual and obscurantist. But this need not be so. In this classic introduction to Christian thinking, John Stott makes a forceful appeal for Christian discipleship that engages the mind as well as the heart.

Quem Sou Eu Para Julgar?
Author: Papa Francisco (jorge Mario Bergoglio), Clara A. Colotto
A palavra de amor do Papa Francisco, líder mundial e símbolo de diálogo e tolerância. Querido e admirado por católicos e não católicos, o Papa Francisco se tornou uma grande liderança mundial, tanto espiritual quanto política. Extremamente carismático, graças a seu diálogo franco e sua linguagem acolhedora, ele se transformou num símbolo de paz, de harmonia, da compreensão do diferente, nos convocando para refletir sobre os direitos básicos do ser humano, sobre a misericórdia e, por que não, sobre a humanidade de que nosso mundo tanto precisa. Nestes tempos de extrema turbulência e crise de valores, a LeYa publica "Quem sou eu para julgar?", uma reunião de textos sobre os mais diversos assuntos. Com uma linguagem direta, simples, mas que toca o coração, o Papa nos coloca diante do real valor da vida: nossa relação com o outro, com Deus e com o mundo. O livro chega para a Páscoa, momento de reflexão e partilha, transformando-se num ótimo presente. "Se há uma palavra que devemos repetir, até nos cansarmos, é esta: diálogo. Somos convidados a promover uma cultura do diálogo, procurando por todos os meios abrir instâncias para que isso seja possível e que nos permita reconstruir a estrutura social", escreve Francisco. Neste livro, o Papa nos chama à prática da compreensão, nos convida a amar o diferente, o outro, sem julgamentos. E que sigamos com ele na construção de tempos melhores! Alguns fragmentos: "O que significa alargar o coração? Antes de mais nada, no reconhecer-se pecador, não se deve olhar para o que os outros fizeram. A pergunta principal é a seguinte: 'Quem sou eu para julgar isso? Quem sou eu para tagarelar sobre isso? Quem sou eu, que fiz as mesmas coisas, ou até pior?'" "Contem, falem sobre as grandes coisas que vocês desejam, porque quanto maior for a capacidade de sonhar - e a vida se encarrega de deixá-los pela metade -, mais caminho você terá percorrido. Por isso, acima de tudo, sonhem." "A sua felicidade não tem preço e não é comerciável; não é um app que se baixa no celular, nem mesmo a versão mais atualizada poderá ajudá-los a se tornar livres e grandes no amor. A liberdade é outra coisa." "O caminho da esperança não é fácil e não pode ser percorrido sozinho. Há um provérbio africano que diz: Se você quer ir rápido, vá sozinho. Se quiser ir longe, vá acompanhado.' "Eu sempre disse que fazer muros não é uma solução: já vimos um cair, no século passado. Não resolve nada. Devemos fazer pontes. Mas as pontes se fazem com inteligência, com diálogo, com integração." "A família é escola privilegiada de generosidade, de partilha, de responsabilidade, escola que educa a superar uma mentalidade individualista que ganhou espaço na nossa sociedade."
The Master and Margarita (Russian: Ма́стер и Маргари́та) is a novel by Mikhail Bulgakov, written between 1928 and 1940, but unpublished in book form until 1967. The story concerns a visit by the devil to the fervently atheistic Soviet Union. Many critics consider it to be one of the best novels of the 20th century, as well as the foremost of Soviet satires.
To some, the concept of having faith in a higher power or a set of religious beliefs is nonsensical. Indeed, many view religion in general, and Christianity in particular, as unfounded and unreasonable. Norman Geisler and Frank Turek argue, however, that Christianity is not only more reasonable than all other belief systems, but is indeed more rational than unbelief itself. With conviction and clear thinking, Geisler and Turek guide readers through some of the traditional, tested arguments for the existence of a creator God. They move into an examination of the source of morality and the reliability of the New Testament accounts concerning Jesus. The final section of the book deals with a detailed investigation of the claims of Christ. This volume will be an interesting read for those skeptical about Christianity, as well as a helpful resource for Christians seeking to articulate a more sophisticated defense of their faith.
A collection of essays that sets forth the moral principles of Objectivism, Ayn Rand's controversial, groundbreaking philosophy. Since their initial publication, Rand's fictional works—Anthem, The Fountainhead, and Atlas Shrugged—have had a major impact on the intellectual scene. The underlying theme of her famous novels is her philosophy, a new morality—the ethics of rational self-interest—that offers a robust challenge to altruist-collectivist thought. Known as Objectivism, her divisive philosophy holds human life—the life proper to a rational being—as the standard of moral values and regards altruism as incompatible with man's nature. In this series of essays, Rand asks why man needs morality in the first place, and arrives at an answer that redefines a new code of ethics based on the virtue of selfishness.

The Pagan Lord
Author: Bernard Cornwell
Publisher: Harper Collins
The seventh installment of Bernard Cornwell’s bestselling series chronicling the epic saga of the making of England, “like Game of Thrones, but real” (The Observer, London)—the basis for The Last Kingdom, the hit television series coming to Netflix in Fall 2016. At the onset of the tenth century, England is in turmoil. Alfred the Great is dead and his son Edward reigns as king. Wessex survives but peace cannot hold: the Danes in the north, led by Viking Cnut Longsword, stand ready to invade and will never rest until the emerald crown is theirs. Uhtred, once Alfred’s great warrior but now out of favor with the new king, must lead a band of outcasts north to recapture his old family home, the impregnable Northumbrian fortress Bebbanburg. Loyalties will be divided and men will fall as each Saxon kingdom is drawn into the bloodiest battle yet with the Danes—a war that will decide the fate of every king, and the entire English nation. With The Pagan Lord, New York Times bestselling author Bernard Cornwell—"the most prolific and successful historical novelist in the world today” (Wall Street Journal)—continues his magnificent epic of the making of England during the Middle Ages, vividly bringing to life the uneasy alliances, violent combat, and deadly intrigue that gave birth to the British nation.

NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING JULIA ROBERTS, OWEN WILSON, AND JACOB TREMBLAY! Over 6 million people have read the #1 New York Times bestseller WONDER and have fallen in love with Auggie Pullman, an ordinary boy with an extraordinary face. The book that inspired the Choose Kind movement. I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse. August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid—but his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face. WONDER, now a #1 New York Times bestseller and included on the Texas Bluebonnet Award master list, begins from Auggie’s point of view, but soon switches to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community’s struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance. "Wonder is the best kids' book of the year," said Emily Bazelon, senior editor at Slate.com and author of Sticks and Stones: Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy. In a world where bullying among young people is an epidemic, this is a refreshing new narrative full of heart and hope. R.J. Palacio has called her debut novel “a meditation on kindness” —indeed, every reader will come away with a greater appreciation for the simple courage of friendship. Auggie is a hero to root for, a diamond in the rough who proves that you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out. Join the conversation: #thewonderofwonder
