American Freedom and Catholic Power

By Paul Blanshard

The Beacon Press, 1949. Hardcover. Very Good/No Jacket. 0 From the book, ""The Catholic issue is not an easy subject to discuss objectively because most Americans have automatically accepted their attitudes on the subject from their parents, and they do not want those attitudes disturbed. They are Catholic or they are not Catholic. If they are Catholic, they tend to view their own Church with favor, and its critics with suspicion. If they are not Catholic, they tend to reverse the process and view all distinctively Catholic policies with doubt. American Catholics and American non-Catholics both tend to leave the discussion of religious differences to denominational bigots; and many Americans have never had an opportunity to hear a reasoned and temperate discussion of the place of Catholic power in our national life."" Hard cover in very good condition. Text block clean and tight. Book shows some light age tonning to text. Book has grey cloth boards with blue lettering along spine. No dust jacket.

Medjugorje: The Message

By Wayne Weible

Paraclete Press, 1989. Soft cover. Very Good. Signed by Author(s). From the book, ""On October 27, 1985, in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, newspaper publisher and columnist, Wayne Weible, first learned of the phenomenon occurring in the little town with the unpronounceable name. Sensing that there might be material for his column, he decided to pursue the story. Already he had a tie-in in mind that would be perfect for the season: ""As we prepare to celebrate the miracle of Christman, a modern-day miracle may be taking place in an obscure village in Yugoslavia."" The following evening, reviewing a videotape documentary of the events at Medjugorje, he realized that there was far more to it than one column. As it turned out, there were eight, and as requests poured in for reprints, to cut down on copying and postage costs he reproduced them in tabloid form. Now, he has written a book about Medjugorje--the first from a Protestant perspective. It may be the most penetrating from any perspective."" Soft cover in very good condition. Text block clean and tight. No markings noted. Book has been signed on front fly leaf by the author (signature not authenticated).
