So, while I have not read any of these books, I am providing you with a list of the ones that especially piqued my interest. If you are interested in purchasing any of these books, please click on the title text link. The link will bring to the Amazon.com page for that book.

Am I Living a Spiritual Life: Questions & Answers for Those Who Pray. If it's time for you to take the next step on the path of spiritual progress, these pages are for you. They'll provide you with the solid direction you need to develop a rich spiritual life, deepen it through regular prayer, and model it humbly in your relationships with others. Here you'll also discover: How to hear and follow God's special call for you; How to combat loneliness, listlessness, fatigue, and fear; How to pray even when you are tired and discouraged; How to tell if you need a spiritual director (and how to find a good one); Plus much more to help you live a proper spiritual life.

A Biblical Defense of Catholicism shows that, far from straying from the Bible, Catholicism is thoroughly biblical. To demonstrate this, Catholic author Dave Armstrong (a former Protestant campus missionary) focuses on those issues about which Catholics and Protestants disagree the most. Working patiently, systematically, and above all, charitably (and citing Church councils, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Church Fathers, and canon law) Armstron begins his comprehensive examination of each of these disputed issues with an authoritative explanation of what the Catholic Church actually teaches. Then, with skill and tenacity, he subjects each Catholic teaching to microscopic scrutiny, measuring its conformity with the Bible.

Catholic Homeschool Companion offers straight talk about homeschooling, along with thousands of helpful, classroom-tested, homeschooling secrets. Here is you one-stop resource for information, insight, and inspiration about every aspect of educating your children at home - written by those who understand it best: homeschooling parents! You'll find wise advice and practical tips to make you a better teacher and your homeschool more productive and enjoyable. Of course, homeschooling involves more than academics. That's why the Catholic Homeschool Companion includes essays to help you foster your children's moral and spiritual development, involve time-challenged dads, teach kids with special needs or in special circumstances, and handle other common problems homeschoolers face.
