Kicking off a new series, Catholic Book of the Month, here in February of 2021. First up, a new book by one of my all-time favorite authors, one whose books and talks played a large role in my conversion. I’m looking forward to this series. I’ve found some great titles for it already. :)
Book of the Month 1, Part 1, February 8, 2021: First up in our new series is a new book by one of my all-time favorite authors, a former Protestant pastor and fellow convert to the Catholic Church, and whose books and talks played a large role in my conversion. It Is Right and Just, by Scott Hahn and Brandon McGinley.
BOTM 1, Part 2, February 15, 2021: Part 2 of It Is Right and Just, by Scott Hahn and Brandon McGinley. True religion is, always has been, and always will be a public thing.
BOTM 1, Part 3, February 22, 2021: Part 3 of It Is Right and Just, by Scott Hahn and Brandon McGinley. We were made to shine, not to hide. To light the way, not to give way.
BOTM 2, Part 1 March 1, 2021: I’m pausing the Re-Reading the New Age series that would usually appear on the first of the month, so I can focus on Catholic spirituality during the Lenten and Easter seasons. So this evening we’ll begin looking at our second Catholic Book of the Month, Praying with Jesus and Faustina During Lent and in Times of Suffering, by Susan Tassone. I only got my copy tonight.
BOTM 2, Part 2, March 8, 2021: Time for Part 2 of our second Catholic Book of the Month, Praying with Jesus and Faustina During Lent and in Times of Suffering, by Susan Tassone. Includes a video of the EWTN Bookmark interview with Doug Keck and author Susan Tassone.
BOTM 2 Part 3, March 15, 2021: Taking a brief look at the section for today, the Fourth Monday of Lent, and chapter 2, Meditations on the Passion and the Way of the Cross with St. Faustina.
BOTM 2 Part 4, March 22, 2021: Welcome to part 4 of our Catholic Book of the Month for March 2021, Praying with Jesus and Faustina During Lent and in Times of Suffering, by Susan Tassone. I’m also going to include some things from the Marian site of the Divine Mercy to help us get ready for Holy Week.
BOTM 3 Part 1, April 2021: “The greatest archeological discovery of the 20th century gave the world the Dead Sea Scrolls. As the oldest sacred documents of Judaism, the scrolls have many surprising connections to early Christianity.” I can hardly wait to dig into this.
BOTM 3 Part 2, April 2021: Welcome to part 2 of our Catholic Book of the Month series, featuring Jesus and the Dead Sea Scrolls, by Dr. John Bergsma. I’ve got some more videos by Dr. Bergsma to share tonight. Topics he covers are the Jewish roots of the Church; Paul, works of the Law and the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Scrolls and the Reformation–should be some interesting. I haven’t watched these all the way through. Gonna get anotha cuppa and watch them now.
BOTM 3 Part 3, April 2021: Welcome to our Catholic Book of the Month series for April 2021, featuring Jesus and the Dead Sea Scrolls. We’ve got two vids by Dr. John Bergsma and one by Fr. Mitch Pacwa, SJ.
BOTM 4 Part 1, May 2021: Our Catholic Book of the Month for May is something a little different this time, something you can’t buy. Not yet, anyway. I’m working on a couple of books. One of them is a Rosary book, the other is a work of fiction based on the Gospels and some other sources. What follows here is a little exploration in imagination (and more of a vignette than a story at this point) that came to me when I sat down to write tonight’s post.
BOTM 4 Part 2, May 2021: My experiment continues, writing my toward the story as my main character writes his story, too. Come along with me and we’ll see where it goes.
BOTM 4 Part 3, May 2021: The journey and the experiment continue. Come along with me and let’s see where we end up. :)
BOTM 4 Part 4, May 2021: The journey continues. I’m writing a book and working my way into the writing, which is what this experiment is, a journey into the writing. So the journey in the title refers both to the story itself and to my writing my way toward the story. Come along with me on a journey of discovery as I figure out where we’re going. :)
