Common Sense Catholicism: How to Resolve Our Cultural Crisis
Analyses how the three key elements of a democratic society—freedom, equality, and fraternity—have been misconstrued by intellectuals and policy makers who do not respect the limitations of the human condition.
By contrast, the social teachings of the Catholic Church mesh nicely with the demands of human nature, and as such they offer the right remedy to our cultural crisis. Catholic teaching offers much wisdom to remedy our insufficient understanding of the elements needed for a free and flourishing society.

We Will Feast: Rethinking Dinner, Worship, and the Community of God
The gospel story is filled with meals. It opens in a garden and ends in a feast. Records of the early church suggest that believers met for worship primarily through eating meals. Over time, though, churches have lost focus on the centrality of food— and with it a powerful tool for unifying Christ’s diverse body.
But today a new movement is under way, bringing Christians of every denomination, age, race, and sexual orientation together around dinner tables. Men and women nervous about stepping through church doors are finding God in new ways as they eat together.
The author shares stories of churches worshiping around the table, introducing readers to the rising contemporary dinner-church movement. This book provides vision and inspiration to readers longing to experience community in a real, physical way.
