Jazz Goes To Church is the first and only album by Father Jack Herrera & The Trip ESP. Herrera was a reverend at The Lutheran Church of North America at Luther Place Memorial Church in Washington, DC, and this album is a musical service. Herrera, who played with the Benny Goodman Orchestra, offers sermons but also plays flute and clarinet with the trio, which included Gene Rush on piano, Steve Novosel on bass and Jimmy Hopps on drums. This was released on Enterprise Records, then a subsidiary of Atlantic Records but would become known as the primary home of soul singer/songwriter/musician Isaac Hayes. The album includes a rendition of Miles Davis' "So What" that opens Side 2. This is ripped from vinyl.

Entrusting the apostles to continue the work he had started by instructing them to "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit . . .," Jesus kindled the fires of a new religion in a world largely dominated by polytheism, cult leader worship, and mysticism. In the first century of its existence, Christianity was both welcomed and vilified throughout the Roman Empire. Many of Christianity's original adherents were martyred - murdered by those who believed it a danger to their authority or, at the very least, the cause of unrest among an otherwise docile populace.

Who exactly were the Apostolic Fathers? Why were they given that name?

In After the New Testament: The Writings of the Apostolic Fathers, Professor Ehrman answers these and many other questions as he introduces us to what is considered the most important collection of post-New Testament writings.

God's Choice: Pope Benedict XVI and the Future of the Catholic Church
Publisher: HarperCollins | ISBN: 0066213312 | edition 2005 | PDF | 320 pages | 1,02 mb

George Weigel's bestselling biography of Pope John Paul II, Witness to Hope, set the standard by which all portraits of the modern papacy are now measured. With God's Choice, he gives us an extraordinary chronicle of the rise of Pope Benedict XVI as well as an unflinching view of the Catholic Church at the dawn of a new era. When John Paul II lapsed into illness for the last time, people flocked from all over the world to pray outside his apartment. He had become a father figure to millions in a world bereft of strong paternal examples, and those millions now felt orphaned…

"Father McGivney's vision remains as relevant as ever in the changed circumstances of today's church and society."—Pope John Paul II Is now the time for an American parish priest to be declared a Catholic saint? In Father Michael McGivney (1852-1890), born and raised in a Connecticut factory town, the modern era's ideal of the priesthood hit its zenith. The son of Irish immigrants, he was a man to whom "family values" represented more than mere rhetoric. And he left a legacy of hope still celebrated around the world. In the late 1800s, discrimination against American Catholics was widespread. Many Catholics struggled to find work and ended up in infernolike mills. An injury or the death of the wage earner would leave a family penniless. The grim threat of chronic homelessness and even starvation could fast become realities…
