I know a lot of you will be looking to buy things online at a discount for Black Friday and this time period. Please consider coming here and using one of my links to go into Amazon. You get the same prices but I get a small percentage of each sale. I can’t see what you buy. This is an important part of my monthly income, thanks in advance.
To get you started today, I received a lovely new book by Joseph Pearce – winning a great reputation as a biographer – about Joseph Ratzinger / Benedict XVI.
This would make a good Christmas gift. It is not overly long or weighed down with extensive notes. There is an index, which helps. It’s forthright about Benedict XVI’s enemies without being over the top. It is quite personal. The forward is by Scott Hahn because Card. Burke went down for a while with COVID-1984.
Benedict XVI: Defender of the Faith
Another favorite of mine by Joseph Pearce is the must read…
Literary Converts: Spiritual Inspiration in an Age of Unbelief
I also think that he get’s the whole Shakespeare as Catholic debate right.
The Quest for Shakespeare
Also learned recently, that he scored an interview with the reclusive Alexander Solzhenitsyn
Solzhenitsyn: A Soul in Exile
