Catholic Reads Before Election Day: Part 2

The Register offers more books worth reading before Nov. 6. Biographies of St. Thomas More and Sargent Shriver are offered here, as is a book — co-authored by a Catholic and an evangelical Christian — dedicated to how the United States can return to its founding principles. And Catholic women speak about what is important to them in light of government intrusions into their faith and family matters. All of the selections examine the harmony that can be found between the principles of faith, virtue and service — apropos before Election 2012.
