Johnnette Benkovic and Thomas Sullivan team up to bring us a new look at the Rosary as a powerful spiritual weapon for our day. The Rosary: Your Weapon for Spiritual Warfare, Doug Keck on EWTN Bookmark comments, “includes not only great stories of victories won by praying the rosary in times of crisis, but also personal accounts of Johnnette’s and Tom’s, that should make us all pick up our beads with renewed devotion to Our Lady and Our Lord.”
EWTN Bookmark‘s Doug Keck hosts Fr. Daniel Utrecht, priest of the Oratory of St. Philip Neri, Toronto, to discuss his new biography, The Lion Who Roared: The Bishop Who Roared Against the Nazis. Fr. Utrecht’s interest in Cardinal Clemens August von Galen, bishop of Munster from 1933 to 1946, stems from meeting von Galen’s family while studying in Germany; Fr. Dan soon realized that stories of the Cardinal’s bravery during the brutal Nazi regime needed to be told. Thus the germ of The Lion Who Roared was planted, which Doug calls “a highly valuable contribution to the inside story of Munster and its citizens during World War II.”
EWTN Publishing‘s Brandon McGinley has culled interviews of nine former atheists from past Journey Home episodes, to assemble From Atheism to Catholicism. The result? Nine insider views of the why’s and wherefore’s of a life minus a ‘vertical dimension,’ as presenter (and host of The Journey Home) Marcus Grodi describes it. Inspiring to read, EWTN Bookmark‘s Doug Keck comments, to reflect upon with family and friends, and a great book to pass along to anyone interested in the Catholic Church.
“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.
