This follow on a tweet I saw a few days ago, I don’t recall whose, which had a photo of a page of a “Miss Marple” book. Her regular bedtime reading was Imitation of Christ.
Just to round out your non-fiction reading list, I thought I would recommend a website that has compiled a list of 376 clerical detectives, including Catholic priests, monks, and nuns, Protestant ministers, and rabbis (and a few non-monotheists of paganism). The site even lists a plot involving Leo XIII and Sherlock Holmes collaborating (story by Ann Margaret Lewis). These can be tools for evangelization. Harry Kemelmen, for instance, created the Rabbi Small series just so that he could proselytize and explain Judaism. I wish we had someone like that writing a Catholic series. I suspect that you may favor more action/sci-fi stories, but outside of Brother Cadfael and Fr. Brown, few people can name Catholic characters in mystery/detective stories. Catholicism is steeped in mystery and the mystery story is a natural vehicle for explaining its theology.
The site – Clerical Detectives – is HERE.
If you are planning on getting any books, or anything else, PLEASE use my links for amazon shopping. I can’t see who buys what, but I get a small percent of each sale within your session. It’s an important percent of my income, so I am grateful when you use them. And I pray regularly for my benefactors.
