Living the Mystery Mark Patrick Hederman Book CoverLiving the Mystery

This book aims to close the gap between science and religion in our society. Fighting against the common belief that religion is fading, Mark Patrick Hederman argues that religion is alive and well in the present day. Having lived as a Benedictine monk for over fifty years, Hederman has had his fair share of experiences engaging with the mysteries of both religion and science. In this fascinating book, he argues that most of us are religious by default and that being human means that we have to be religious otherwise we would die of despair. This is the perfect book for readers of all religious backgrounds and creates a powerful argument as to why science and religion work well together, rather than opposing forces.

Freedom from Evil Spirits CoverFreedom from Evil Spirits

Written by Fr Pat Collins, this book explores the evils that exist in modern-day society and what we can do to expel the demons from our lives. Pat Collins is an Irish Vincentian priest based in Dublin. He is a speaker, retreat leader and author of many books on spirituality, and is one of the few priests in the country with experience as an exorcist.
