BOOKS

I’m having a crisis of literature. For the second month in a row, I am reviewing a book by a non-Catholic pastor. This one, “A Second Day: a Hopeful Journey Out of Suicidal Thinking,” by Fe Anam Avis.

Over the course of time, "myths and misunderstandings about the Jesuits" entered so deeply into the public mind that "they seem impossible to eradicate."

As the number of babies born with Down syndrome continues to plummet, local author Sherry Boas hopes people will ponder the unintended consequences.

I received this book, R is for Rosary, by Barbara Gowan and immediately thought – as a Lay Dominican – a book about St. Dominic and the story of how the Virgin Mary gave him the rosary. Then, I discovered it was a children’s book.

The book "Three Moments of the Day: Praying with the Heart of Jesus” is one of those tests of Church unity.
