Recommended Summer Reading

With the Summer days stretching on, there’s a bit more time to relax and to read. Our staff have put together a list of books we’d like to recommend for your Summer reading:

 

The Keys of the Kingdom

A.J. Cronin

I am a fan of Cronin’s anyway but I particularly like this story of a priest’s struggle with his vocation and faith because of its message of hope.  It is also interesting to learn about the Chinese missions of the time.

The Screwtape Letters

C.S. Lewis

It’s funny and broken into nice small sections (letters) which makes it easy to pick up and put down.

–  David

 

Manalive 

G.K. Chesterton

Chesterton’s style is an acquired taste with its witticisms and word play, but this tale of a seemingly mad man who makes a group of middle class Londoners re-assess their values is hilariously, absurdly brilliant.

The Classics of Catholic Spirituality

Peter John Cameron

This little book briefly explains some of the big classical works like the Cloud of Unknowing, The Confessions of St Augustine etc. It’s a nice, brief introduction to some of the greatest works of our Faith.
