Last Books The last four books I read were Divorce & Remarriage by Trent Horn, Faith & Science …

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 …

20 Answer Update #4

I am still working my way through the 20 Answers Challenge from Catholic Answers. Since my last update, I have finished 4 more books. Note I have been working on writing slightly longer reviews on these books, and I will be sharing them in the coming weeks. I try to make it a point to …

Book Review: The Bible

The Bible is yet another book by Trent Horn that I read for the 20 Answers Challenge. The booklet “offers a truly Catholic perspective on Scripture…It also takes on challenges from skeptics…” This is yet another great resource for Catholic apologetics.

Book Review: Christ among other gods

Book Review: Salvation by Jimmy Akin

Salvation was written by a former Protestant, Jimmy Akin.  The booklet says it will share “the beautiful story of how God calls us out of sin, justifies us, makes us holy, and leads us to everlasting life with him.” Akin does a great job addressing questions on a complex topic in a very accessible way. …

Book Review: Hope for the Same-Sex Attracted

Sometimes in our big-picture discussions about homosexuality and same-sex marriage, we lose sight of the person in the middle of the struggle. That single sentence convinced me that Hope for the Same-Sex Attracted: Biblical Direction for Friends, Family Members, and Those Struggling with Homosexuality by Ron Citlau was a book I needed to read. I …
