Catholic Book Reviews Monthly

This site by Mary Brittnacher, a former librarian here at Sacred Heart, reviews new books on Catholic topics. Her current review is of Fr. Robert Barron's Heaven in Stone and Glass: Experiencing the Spirituality of the Gothic Cathedrals. Her previous reviews have been of Fr. Richard John Neuhaus's Catholic Matters (although the link is currently defective on this one), Jonathan Englert's The Collar (a book about Sacred Heart School of Theology), and Thomas Cahill's Mysteries of the Middle Ages: The Rise of Feminism, Science, and Art from the Cults of Catholic Europe. The reviews are detailed and insightful.

By the way, Fr. Barron is great. If you don't know his work see his website, Word on Fire.
