Book Suggestions

In order to properly utilize these suggestions, we need all the following information (all of which can usually be found on Amazon.com or on the publisher’s website):

1. Individual or series title. E.g. “The Fellowship of the Ring” for a single title, or “The Lord of the Rings” for the series title (one book or series per entry, please. If there are multiple books by various authors in one entry, we cannot properly track votes and the entry will be deleted)
2. The author(s)
3. The current publisher. E.g. “Baker” or “Hendrickson”.
4. The copyright/publication date
5. The ISBN (this is included on most Amazon.com book pages under “Product Details”)
Extra credit: add the Amazon.com link

  1. Method in Theology by Bernard Lonergan

    We have little on the "how to do" theology front. Anything by Lonergan is worth adding to Logos/Verbum but this would also help fill a gap.

  10. The Mass Explained for Kids

    My wife worked on this book for the Daughters of St Paul after the introduction of the new Missal. EAN 9780819848857
    ISBN 0819848859. It's short, thrifty and although it's targeted for children it has explanations that LOTS of adults have found very useful.
