Some notable books passed through our hands at TAS this week and here are some highlights:
Michelle Malkin puts in book form that which she does best: chronicling liberal madness in Swimming With Scapulars: True Confessions of a Young Catholic, his first book, Lickona presents short essays on the struggles of living faithfully. For a book by a Catholic, mainly about his faith, it's unusual in that Catholics don't typically bare their souls in a reflection-type book. We rarely get so personal. Lickona's absolute honesty and humility lend this book its charm. He displays all his faults as if he were confessing to the reader – his difficulty in practicing natural family planning at first, discovering his temper, his parish-hopping. A chapter a day of Lickona's book will effect the prayerful examination you owe your soul anyway. And it's entertaining besides.
