Christmas Books

The Christmas holidays are a good time to catch up on reading, and the Register has several suggestions. Though Tears of God by Father Benedict Groeschel deals with tragedy, he offers a perspective that is filled with hope — and Christmas is a season of hope. Hope is the feeling we get when we hear of people coming into the Church — because they are convinced that it possesses the fullness of the truth. Francis Beckwith, a recent high-profile convert, tells his conversion story in Return to Rome. Finally, Cardinal Giacomo Biffi, archbishop emeritus of Bologna, Italy, offers a picture of who Jesus really is — something we sometimes need to be reminded of when the world’s conception of Christmas smothers the reason Christ was born.

Yes, people still read books — and some even appreciate getting them as gifts. The Register has a few ideas, including a novel, a book of Marian apologetics, and a humorous look at raising kids.
