Expansion Of Library And Christmas Music
I just returned home from Borders Bookstore where I have spent some of my Christmas money that I received earlier this week. I could spend so much money on books there, it's scary! I also end up spending hours at a time looking at the books, much to the frustration of my wife. While I was there they were playing Sara Botkin's c.d. An Angel's Christmas. She has the most amazing voice and I wanted a Christmas c.d. that had traditional Christmas hymns on it instead of songs about Santa and generic songs about a warm fuzzy feeling, so I have added it to my collection. I highly recommend it!
The books I purchased are as follows:
A Concise History of the Catholic Church by Thomas Bokenkotter
Origen: An Exhortation To Martyrdom, Prayer And Selected Works translated by Rowan A. Greer (with a preface by Hans Urs Von Balthasar
Called To Communion by Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger (Benedict XVI)
On The Way To Jesus Christ by Joseph Ratzinger (Benedict XVI)
Apologia Pro Vita Sua by John Henry Newman
Orthodoxy by G.K. Chesterton
Letters To Jesus (Answered) by Peter Kreeft
As you can see, I have quite a bit of reading ahead of me!
