Description:  While twenty-one beautiful, glowing icons lead us to see Jesus face to face, the accompanying reflections call us to become this image of God, to put on the new life of Christ. As they have throughout the centuries, icons lead us, teach us, inspire us, and draw us into the presence of the divine.  The wondrous saving grace of Jesus comes alive in both image and word.

Description:  The prophets of old — Moses, Elijah, Amos, Jeremiah, Isaiah, Job and others — were truth-tellers who announced God’s will. Sometimes strangely dressed, other times seemingly mad, their attention was riveted on the time and troubles in which they lived. Curiously enough, the troubles of yesterday are also the troubles of today: poverty and injustice, idolatry and abuse of power.

We often search among different spiritualities for guidance on how to lead our lives and how to find that kernel of truth, forgetting that all were originally derived from Scripture — the words of Scripture pronounced by the prophets and then again by Jesus, the last prophet. Drawing on Scripture and a treasure house of stories, especially from the Jewish tradition, McKenna breathes life into the prophets and opens their messages to us.

Description:  Thirty-one icons painted by William Hart McNichols present varying faces of Mary, one of the most loved persons of all time. From the Black Madonna through Our Lady of Sorrows, Megan McKenna’s reflections on the imagery of the icons leads us deeper into Mary’s devotion and reverence before God, her love, her sorrow, and her compassion. More than simple images, these icons become our hopes and prayers.

Description:  In this powerful collection of her best poetry, prophet and world traveler Megan McKenna lifts the veil of the sacred realm and offers us rare glimpses into the Marrow of Mystery. This collection is from the pen of a peregrine soul who helps us see God wherever we are and explore the marrow of mystery in the people we encounter, prayers we utter, natural world we inhabit, and mysterious space we embody.

As one of today’s most popular and beloved writers, speakers, retreat leaders, and ministers, McKenna draws from her vast education and experiences to cast light on the physical and mystical realms. Broken into four parts – Incarnations, Incantations, Intrusions, and Infusions – McKenna’s rich poetry captures moments in time that lead us to ever-transcending, timeless truths. Sometimes stark, often warm, and always provocative, McKenna’s poems get to the heart of faith, love, friendship, loss, justice, peace, freedom, and humanity.

Description:  More stories of Biblical women in this eagerly awaited sequel to her first book ‘Not Counting Women and Children’.

Through her skillful use of stories and Jewish midrash, McKenna introduces the reader to another side of Hannah, Esther, Rachel and Leah, Mary Magdalene and many others, including prophetesses and slaves. She emphasizes the life-giving qualities of these women and their relationships with God. The stories make us pause and reflect on new insights about our fore mothers in faith.
