“Catholicism is the most interesting, unbroken, longstanding tradition in the world,” says Bob Royal to EWTN Bookmark‘s Doug Keck. A Deeper Vision shows the total misperception of the Catholic Church and its members as fundamentalist and anti-intellectual – along with, as Royal calls it, “a bite-sized global view of what happened in the Catholic Church in the 20th century.” A Deeper Vision sketches out the theology, philosophy, literature, music and artistic contributions of Catholicism to the century just ended.
The question behind every project EWTN Journey Home host Marcus Grodi undertakes, is : “Will this help someone grow closer to the Lord Jesus Christ?” Life from Our Land, Marcus’ reflections on what he learned about life and the best way to be living it, was penned when the Grodi family moved to a farm and country life in rural Ohio. Two overriding principles emerged from this experience, he tells Doug on EWTN Bookmark: simplicity and detachment. Life from Our Land is not, Marcus says, “an apologetic for leaving the city for a self-sustaining, off-the-grid, nonelectric, rural life of farming.” Rather, it is a grateful, humble acknowledgment that God speaks and works through His magnificent creation.
Do you hesitate to voice your opinion in conversations with friends and family, for fear of being thought judgmental? Afraid you’ll turn off the very people with whom you’re hoping to share God’s love and wisdom? Edward Sri‘s Who Am I to Judge? is the answer to your quandary. Sri’s chapters, solidly grounded in moral law, contain the keys to winsome, effective conversational parlance with all. And if you’ve ever stammered a feeble reply to the rebuttal, “But Jesus said, ‘Judge not, lest ye be judged,'” Sri’s book will explain what Christ’s counsel truly means.
Fr. Joseph Mary Wolfe, MFVA, came to EWTN in 1985, and recalls the many happy hours he and the staff spent with Mother Angelica, listening to her weekly teachings, and then later reading the mini-books which Mother wrote and published. Father shares his reflections with Doug about Mother Angelica: On Suffering and Burnout, the latest in a growing collection of Mother’s mini-books, handsomely bound and offered by EWTN Publishing.
“Are you saved, brother?” Saved: a Bible Study Guide for Catholics, answers that question which often leaves Catholics wanting a better response to their Protestant brethren. Fr. Mitch Pacwa, S.J. addresses those issues which have historically tended to divide Catholics and Protestants. Fr. Mitch delves into the Scriptural meaning of salvation, faith by works, hope, baptism, and more. This is an EWTN Bookmark interview profitable to all Catholics and Protestants, and will surely lead, Doug observes, to a greater understanding of the Christian faith we share.
Human nature and God’s truth remain the same throughout the centuries, as the Latin language would put it, ‘In saecula, saeculorum, Amen.’ Fr. Mitch Pacwa, S.J., has organized his new book, The Proverbs Explained: A Blueprint for Christian Living by theme – marriage, family, government, social and business relationships and dealings, – the entire gamut of the human condition. Timeless wisdom and guidance are found within the pages of this little book, published by EWTN Publishing. You’ll catch its flavor in this EWTN Bookmark interview with Doug and Fr. Pacwa.
“Jesus and His Church are absolutely real : even the enemies of Christianity, from the lst century on to our present day, have recognized the supernatural character of Our Lord and his witness. They pushed back against this truth, and this is what Hostile Witnesses traces and documents.” Gary Michuta‘s interview with EWTN Bookmark host Doug Keck confirms once again that there is nothing new under the sun. Christianity’s enemies have been disparaging the words and actions of Jesus Christ ever since He was born in Bethlehem. Michuta proves how strongly they make a case for the very issues they seek to falsify.
