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

I Hate Praying the Breviary

Obviously, praying a Breviary was not a part of my spiritual life growing up. When I was in my last semester of college, I attended a retreat where we prayed the Breviary, and it just wasn’t my thing. I could give the reasons I don’t enjoy praying from it, but that isn’t why I’m writing …

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 a Catholic engineer, I find myself in a weird position because …

I received this book free from Moody Publishers in exchange for my honest review.  Overview Christ Among Other Gods by …

Be a Digital Missionary

There are mixed views in Christian circles regarding social media. While there are certainly dangers with social media, it is also an opportunity to meet people, a lot of people, where they are at. As Catholics, a phrase that is often brought up is “the New Evangelization.” The USCCB says The New Evangelization calls each …

Imperfect Love Perfected through God

There is a simple image that is often presented when Christian romantic relationships are discussed. The idea is simple: the closer each person moves towards God, the closer they grow to each other. Though I have been married for less than a year, as I reflect on it more, I have realized three reasons why …

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. …
