This week’s giveaway:
Cravings: A Catholic Wrestles with Food, Self-Image, and God
By Mary DeTurris Poust (2012, Ave Maria Press)
In case you missed it, I rank this as a must-read book for pretty much everyone.
About the book:
In this first book on the topic written from a Catholic perspective, award-winning writer Mary DeTurris Poust offers personal, hard-won wisdom on the complex relationship between food and spirituality. Mary DeTurris Poust draws on the rich appreciation of meals she first gained at the tables of her childhood in an Italian-American family, leading readers into reflection on the connections between eating, self-image, and spirituality. She helps readers spot ways they use food to avoid or ignore their real desires–for acceptance, understanding, friendship, love, and, indeed, for God.
Jesus: What Catholics Believe
By Alan Schreck (2012, Servant Books)
About the book:
What do Catholics really believe about Jesus? Dr. Alan Schreck offers a thorough answer to this question. Jesus is central to everything the Church believes and teaches, yet few people really understand the significance of who Jesus is in their own lives. Dr. Schreck explains when and how Jesus lived, what he taught, his human and divine nature, and how the Risen Jesus continues to act today in the sacraments, through the Holy Spirit, and in his people and ministers. Written in an engaging, straightforward style, this is a book for anyone wanting to know more about Jesus.
