Catholic Summer Reading Program

Catholic Summer Reading LogoI am so excited!! Aquinas and More Catholic Goods is sponsoring a Catholic Summer Reading Program!! Finally, a way to review, read and discuss Catholic books, both fiction and non-fiction, that we may not have even known existed.

There are some excellent, readable Catholic books out there and now we have a source that lists the best in one place. Whatever your taste in books, Aquinas has a book for you.

The eight books in the program are here at the Catholic Summer Reading Program and include Another Sort of Learning which is a compilation of essays about real learning, A Canticle for Leibowitz, written in the 20th century and set in the post-apocolyptic future, Cosmos or the Love of God, a book about a man's difficult journey in discerning his religious calling, an extensively footnoted edition of G.K. Chesterton's A Man Who Was Thursday, Mr. Blue, a novel written in 1928 which features a modern day St. Francis figure, Strangers and Sojourners, part one of a trilogy, a popular epic novel that follows a family through the generations, Swimming with Scapulars, an honest look at a thirtysomething man's attempt at living his Catholic faith, and the book I am really looking forward to reading, Those Terrible Middle Ages! which promises to debunk all those myths about the Middle Ages being a time of drunken clergy and wonderful witches.

Aquinas has a forum for discussing the books online as well.

I can't wait!

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
