“When we pass on the faith to our kids,” Ted Sri, author, professor, and father of eight comments to Doug Keck on EWTN Bookmark, “it’s not enough for me to give them good orthodox doctrines. I must be aware of, and speak to the issues of the cultural environment — with my kids, my students, and the people I serve.” Love Unveiled is all about taking our Catholic doctrines, and showing how they apply to the questions the young – and the old – face every day as they interact with others. Questions such as, “Isn’t one religion as good as another? We’re all headed toward the same goal, right?” and “Why can’t I express love and commitment any way I want to, as long as it feels honest to me?” A not-to-be-missed EWTN Bookmark interview.
“Save the babies now. Change the law when we can.” This is the cry Joe Scheidler has raised for the pro-life movement ever since Roe v. Wade’s ruling in 1973. “Racketeer for Life is your memoir, your story, is it not?” Doug Keck asks Joe on an upcoming episode of EWTN Bookmark. Scheidler nods, and continues, “We take an activist approach. Until Roe v. Wade is overturned, we go to where the babies are being killed. We talk to the women, the doctors, many of whom have converted.” A stirring Bookmark interview you’ll not want to miss.
Carl E. Olson, editor of Catholic World Report, has been on EWTN a number of times, authored many books including best-seller Will Catholics be ‘Left Behind’, and written hundreds of articles on theology. Did Jesus Really Rise From the Dead is a welcome answer to critics who refute the historicity of Our Lord’s Resurrection; Carl joins Doug Keck on EWTN Bookmark to present the facts of Jesus’ bodily Resurrection in Did Jesus Really Rise From the Dead? with irrefutable documentation, all in a reader-friendly Q & A format.
Denise Bossert‘s newest book, Gifts of the Visitation: Nine Spiritual Encounters with Mary, is several ‘gifts’ to the reader in one slim volume. On EWTN Bookmark, Denise discusses how the book is a blueprint for evangelization, an in-depth account of Our Lady’s visit to her cousin Elizabeth, and a nine-day novena of how to bear – and share – Christ with others. “The first thing Mary does when she’s told by the Archangel Gabriel that she will bear Jesus,” Denise tells Doug, “is to visit her aging cousin, and share this good news with her.” We’re called – indeed, we’re created! – to do the same thing. Denise’s little book, Doug says, will inspire you to take this lifegiving message to family, friends, and whomever our gracious Lord puts in your path. ” Watch for the full interview on EWTN Bookmark.
Austin Ruse’s latest book, Fake Science (Regnery Publishing, July 2017), could not roll off the presses at a better time. “Because we live in an era of science,” Austin comments to Doug Keck on EWTN Bookmark, “scientific claims on every conceivable topic have been presented as Gospel by the Left to the world at large.” Such claims, as we have come to expect, are predictably, diametrically opposed to the Church’s stance and teachings on areas ranging from marriage, the family, and gender identity, to global warning and fracking. Fake Science examines the statistics in 12 issue areas – to see, Austin explains, what the Left says that science says about those issues, and then what science really says. Fake Science: Exposing the Left’s skewed statistics, fuzzy facts, and dodgy data, is an absolute eye-opener for all. Here are hard, cold facts to support what your inner convictions have always told you. Pick up a copy next month at your favorite bookstore, or online.
“The bulk of Littlest Suffering Souls,” Austin Ruse comments to Doug Keck on EWTN Bookmark, ” consists of three stories of children whose short lives were filled with pain, whose families I knew, whose fathers I worked with. They are stories of inspiration, stories too good not to tell, because of their impact, and because of their potential for being life-changing.” Littlest Suffering Souls is, perhaps surprisingly, a good book for atheists, because it addresses the problem of pain. The full episode with author Austin Ruse airs on EWTN Bookmark this September.
“Your first book, but hopefully not your last,” Doug comments to James Day on Father Benedict: The Spiritual and Intellectual Legacy of Pope Benedict XVI. James, Operations Manager for EWTN’s West Coast Studio, entitled his study on the life and often misunderstood pontificate of Joseph Ratzinger, with the name that the Holy Father Emeritus felt most comfortable with : Father Benedict. At heart, Benedict XVI wanted to be known simply as a parish priest who loved to minister to his flock. And as a parish priest, Day’s book reflects Benedict’s goal, to prepare his global flock for the 21st century.
