About this Blog Site:

Peace in the Word is a blog site designed for Catholics and others interested in exploring God’s love through reading. I am a once fallen-away Catholic who experienced a conversion in 2013 and am currently striving to reorder my life with Christ at the center. As an avid, life-long reader, one of my primary means of prayer, contemplation, and inspiration is through reading the gospels and books focused on Catholic and Christian topics. I wish to share some of what I am reading through two types of blogs.

Weekly Gospel Reflections: For the first few years, I focused almost exclusively on reflections on the weekly gospel reading. I did not have the foresight to organize them by cycle or topic, rather than by date. Nevertheless, I think many are worth reading. They turned out better than they should have. By that, I mean I think the Holy Spirit guided my writing frequently in these reflections. So even though it may require some random surfing, I recommend readers check a few of these out (at least until I organize them better).

Catholic and Christian Book Reviews: Currently my focus is a monthly book review, in which I preview and recommend a Christian or Catholic title. The choices will be eclectic, including popular, contemporary titles, classics in the Christian non-fiction genre, and a range of titles spanning from devotional literature to light inspirational reads. The purpose is to provide honest reviews that may be helpful for readers searching for good Catholic or Christian titles. Feel free to share your own titles you feel may benefit me or other readers.

  1. Re: The Dare We Hope book review, I can relate to the skeptical of certainty element. That concept, if widely accepted would do wonders.
