Consuming the Word

cover-Consuming the Word

Twelve years ago, when I was buying and reading and borrowing every book Padre recommended, I read quite a bit of Scott Hahn. I can’t remember if I started with Hail Holy Queen or The Lamb’s Supper, but I devoured them both, along with at least two or three others. I went to a Lamb’s Supper Bible study Father [Read More...]

Strange Gods

cover-strangegods-scalia

I’m no expert on Elizabeth Scalia, except that every time I take the time to read her or listen to her, I’m struck to the core. I’m not a newsie, so I often find myself not reading her blog. Even so, I’ll catch her commentaries on things that not only hit the nail on the [Read More...]

Forming Intentional Disciples – Study Group & Discount

This winter I reviewed Forming Intentional Disciples by Sherry Weddell, and I think it’s one of the most important Catholic books on the market today.  Important enough that I’m putting together a study group in my own town, to meet and discuss the book. And important enough that this summer, CatholicMom.com is hosting a St. [Read More...]

21 Ways to Worship

21WaysCover

Anytime people start talking about Eucharistic Adoration, one question always seems to come up: “A whole hour? What’ll I do for a whole hour?” Thus begins Vinny Flynn’s new book, 21 Ways to Worship: A Guide to Eucharistic Adoration. I’ll admit, I only read it because my arm was twisted. I thought I knew the tone it [Read More...]

What I’m Reading: Zombies, Asteroids, Murder, and John Quincy Adams

Two irresistible books showed up in the mail yesterday. I think I’ve overindulged in review books (again!) and am going to have to have a serious sorting session to focus on just one (or two) at a time. That partly accounts for the fact that I have far too many books partially finished. But when [Read More...]

The Last Policeman by Ben H. Winters

The Last Policeman by Ben H. Winters My rating: 4 of 5 stars The date that everybody knows is October 3, six months and eleven days from today, when a 6.5-kilometer-diameter ball of carbon and silicates will collide with Earth. Reading this book, I mused that perhaps all this science is not the best thing [Read More...]

The Church Building as a Sacred Place by Duncan G. Stroik

The Church Building as a Sacred Place: Beauty, Transcendence, and the Eternal by Duncan G. Stroik My rating: 4 of 5 stars Maybe it’s because I’m a convert from complete secularism. I just don’t see what’s supposed to be so great about the new-fangled churches that look like cracker boxes. Or like space ships. Or [Read More...]

More or Less

cover-moreorlessshinabarger

It was the Saturday before Easter, as I recall. I had rolled out of bed to work on my honors project, and I was putting the coffee into the coffeemaker when it struck me that it was VERY STRANGE that someone was having a cookout at 8 (or was it 7? or 9?) in the [Read More...]
