Catholic Reading List 2019

Catholic Reading List 2019



Over the last few years I have started the year with a reading list. I have usually read about two thirds of that list and about that many again that were not on the list. This year I am just going to keep track as I read, a list for Catholic book and a list for Catholic Fiction. The goal is just to read more Catholic Books.It started in 2016 with  A Year Of Reading Intention – Catholic Reading, and then it continued on 2017 with Catholic Reading List 2017. And again the Catholic Reading List 2018. The lists will be updated as each book is finished and links added as books are reviewed.

Over the last two years I also had the goal of reading the Catechism in a yearnot only did I make it through the Catechism, I also read The CompendiumDOCATYOUCAT, Catholic Christianity. So this year I will start with the An Introduction to Catholicism for Adults edited by Rev.James Socias, and then the Catechism again and see where it goes from there.   

On a side note I was asked to come up with a Top 10 Catholic Books List, it was not an easy task. It actually took a couple of weeks for me to narrow down the list. And I will continue to post a Top Ten Fiction and Top Ten Non-Fiction each Quarter.
