On the closing day of the Catholic Theological Society of America’ s 76th Annual Convention and its theme, “Thinking Catholic Interreligiously” we are pleased to announce the latest publication of respected author Eduardo J. Echeverria, Are We Together? A Roman Catholic Analyzes Evangelical Protestants. An adherent of Receptive Ecumenism and a longtime member of Catholics and Evangelicals Together, Echeverria brings an informed and erudite perspective to the often misunderstood relationship between representatives of these two traditions that have much in common. An expert especially on the Dutch master of dogmatic and ecumenical theology, G. C. Berkouwer (1903–1996), Professor Echeverria critically tackles the writings of Gregg Allison and Leonardo De Chirico among others.

If you plan to attend The 73rd Annual Convention of the Catholic Theological Society of America in Indianapolis next week, be sure to look us up. We’ll be showcasing our latest— and our most influential— books that we’ve published in the last five years.
We do believe that Grace is at Work in the World, and attempt to show this in the titles that we publish. Whether exploring the grace of recent saints—St. Teresa of Calcutta (Mother Teresa) and (soon-to-be Saint) Blessed Oscar Romero—or the impact of Pope Francis, or topical themes of Evangelization or the Creed or Eternal Life, we bring the best of Christianity and Catholicism to parishioners, students, and scholars.
We salute Sr. Ana María Pineda, Oscar Romero scholar and Lectio author, on her recent election to co-lead the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas, West Midwest Community. You won’t want to miss hearing Ana María as a panelist discussing the Theological Witness of Oscar Romero on Friday (June 8) 2:30 in the Lincoln Room.
Stop by our book table to say hello!
Lectio Publishing’s founder/principal, author, and former CTA President, Brennan R. Hill will attend and exhibit at the College Theology Society’s (CTS) annual meeting at Saint Vincent College May 29-June 1 and the Catholic Theological Society of America (CTSA) convention June 5-8. We hope to attend the American Academy of Religion (AAR) meeting November 22-25, but this is a “big” convention-like meeting, and we’re still a “small” indie-like publisher. If we make San Diego, it will be our first trifecta as a new academic publisher.
Please accept our most cordial invitation to stop by our table in the exhibitor hall to say hello to Brennan and consider one of our three titles for your personal library or classroom.
Religion Today: An Integral Approach
From the phenomenon of individuals becoming “spiritual but not religious” to multiple religions’ views on homosexuality, Dr. Brennan R. Hill uses multiple perspectives to look at how religion relates to today’s society.
Sacramental Theology: 50 Years After Vatican II
On the 50th Anniversary of the Second Vatican Council (1962-65) renowned Franciscan theologian Kenan B. Osborne applies pristine logic to systematically demonstrate how Council changes in church theology consequently reconstruct sacramental theology in both meaning and celebration.
Theology of the Body, Extended: The Spiritual Signs of Birth, Impairment, and Dying
Susan Windley-Daoust, a passionate enthusiast of the theology of John Paul II, spiritual director, and Assistant Professor of Theology at SMUM, explores what it would mean to read the Theology of Body as a spiritual anthropology that points toward a desire for God, especially at times of childbirth, impairment, and dying.
Three publications. Three inspirational authors. Trifecta!
