Books: August 2009 Archives

Evangelization for the 3rd Millennium.jpgCardinal Avery Dulles is still producing intellectual stimulation. Due to be released next week is Evangelization for the Third Millennium (Paulist Press), the final work that he had already in progress during what became the Cardinal's final months.

In her Preface to this anthology, Cardinal Dulles' longtime colleague, administrative & research assistant and former student, Sister Ann-Marie Kirmse, says that Dulles' work explores the theme of evangelization based on the seminal work of Pope Paul VI and later on the work Pope John Paul II on the same topic.

Avery Cardinal Dulles, SJ, died on December 12, 2008.

Canon law isn't the most scintillating subject for most Catholics, even for priests, but it's a necessary science in our ecclesial existence. I am happy to let you know that the fourth edition, revised and updated, of Dr. John Huels' The Pastoral Companion, has been published by Wilson & Lafleur of Montreal in the Gratianus Series.

A link to the Table of Contents at the above link will demonstrate the topics covered. It seems to me that all pastoral ministers need this book.

It's on the website,, on the link for "new releases" or just follow the link above which may be easier.

The author was a professor mine at the University of Notre Dame and is quite good in his scholarship and pastoral insight. 

Funny, my 1000th post is on a book on canon law.
