Grow in faith, grow in reason—for everyone.

The Catholic University of America is dedicated to “forming Catholic minds,” not just among budding scholars of theology or philosophy, but in all its students. CUA Press carries forward that mission by publishing works that disseminate Catholic teaching and the fruits of scholarship in an accessible way, whether applied to areas like business or education, or in answer to enduring questions like the existence of hell or the interpretation of Jesus in the Scriptures.

These aren’t textbooks (you can find those elsewhere on our site); they are good reading for lovers of wisdom young and old.

Called to Holiness

On Love, Vocation, and Formation

By Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI

The Catholic Church has few needs as pressing as the need for more priestly vocations and better seminary formation. This is a book to give every young man and woman discerning their state in life, and we hope it will be a valuable tool for vocation directors. Fr. Pietro Rossotti, who teaches at Mt. St. Mary’s Seminary in Emmittsburg, Maryland, has compiled all of Benedict XVI’s most relevant addresses, speeches, and homilies to seminarians and consecrated men and women into a single volume for the English-speaking world.

"I warmly recommend it." -Charles J. Chaput, OFM Cap, Archbishop of Philadelphia

Jesus, Interpreted

Benedict XVI, Bart Ehrman, and the Historical Truth of the Gospels

By Matthew Ramage

Does modern Biblical scholarship always destroy faith, or can it enrich faith? Bart Ehrman is one of the foremost popularizers of Biblical scholarship in America, and his works have cast doubt about the Christian view of Jesus. But Matthew Ramage guides us in another way to interpret the same scholarly data, with the help of the writings of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI; faith remains eminently reasonable.
