What’s a Person to Do?: Everyday Decisions That Matter

By Mark Latkovic (2013, Our Sunday Visitor)

About the book:

What’s a person to do — especially when there is no definitive Catholic teaching on a subject? Do we just brush off these pesky moral dilemmas? Do we happily live in the gray areas of life and simply go along with conventional wisdom? Or do we make an honest attempt to face these moral questions head on?

The way we deal with these seemingly small ethical decisions can have a huge impact on our own lives as well as those of our children and families.

This book is an ethical toolbox, providing you with a process for making confident choices, asking yourself challenging questions, developing moral virtue, and discovering deeper happiness.

The Fathers of the Church (3rd Edition)

By Mike Aquilina (2013, Our Sunday Visitor)

About the book:

We hear the voices of the early Church Fathers even today. Their teachings, their guidance, their insights, and their sacrifice shaped the Catholic Church. They defined the canon of Scripture. They developed our creeds and forms of worship. They defined Christianity’s distinctive moral sense.

But who were they? What can we learn from their ancient teachings? What can the Fathers teach the 21st century – about holiness, culture, faith, and the Gospel.

This is the definitive resource for anyone interested in learning about the Church Fathers and their legacy. Ideal for RCIA, catechists, clergy, as well as lay Catholics who want to learn more about the great teachers of early Christianity.

Bringing the Gospel of Mark to Life: Insight and Inspiration

By George Martin (2013, Our Sunday Visitor)

About the book:

The Gospel of Mark may be the briefest of the four Gospels, but it is the richest in detail, giving us descriptions of miracles and events in the life of Jesus found nowhere else in the Bible.

In common sense language and easy-to-understand concepts, gifted Catholic writer George Martin brings Mark’s words to life, focusing on its meaning in the time of its writing, as well as how this Gospel is meaningful for our lives today.

Whether you practice prayerful reading (lectio divina), prepare homilies, lead or participate in Bible study groups, are a Scripture teacher or seminarian, you will find George Martin to be an enlightening and accessible guide to Mark’s Gospel.
