Book Review: Scripture and Tradition

This Lent and Easter Season, I took on the Catholic Answers challenge. As I mentioned in the original post, I was recommending it without reading the books. I felt it was only fair to share my thoughts on the books as I read them (and amend my recommendation if necessary).  Scripture and Tradition by Jim Blackburn …

Listen to an Expert: Helping a Friend with Grief

When something happens to someone we love, we want to do something. As Christians, logically we know that prayer is the best course of action. There is nothing more effective than giving that pain to our Creator. However, we aren’t just spiritual beings. We are both body and soul, and that body part of us …

Horn addressed a wide span of topics including what actually comprises the Bible, how Scripture …

I Hate Praying the Breviary

20 Answers Update #3

As I’ve mentioned several times, I am participating in the 20 Answers Challenge Challenge from Catholic Answers. Since my last update, I have finished 5 more books. As I’ve been looking through different sources, some seem to say that the 20 Answers Challenge was just for Lent and other say it was for the Lenten …

Book Review: Death & Judgment

This is one of the books from the 20 Answers Challenge.  We come back to a book written by Trent Horn, Death & Judgment.  The booklet explores “the last things that await us, including purgatory, heaven and hell, and the resurrection of our bodies, as well as the end times and renewal of all creation.” …
