I am reading George Weigel's 'Letters to a Young Catholic' and enjoying it very much. I plan on reading some of his other books but was wondering if anyone had any recommendations of other authors that have written similar books (historical, what it means to be Catholic). I did a search for both Weigel and Catholic authors and found nothing. Thank you.
Weigel's book is indeed an excellent work. His writing style is very engaging.
I started to read his wonderful biography of Pope John Paul II but stopped as I was moving house. I hope to begin again soon.
A friend recommended a book called 'The Sacrament of the Present Moment' by Malcolm Muggeridge. I do not know if it is still in print but she said it was such a dynamic and thought-provoking book by the late Catholic writer and broadcaster. I'm sure Amazon would
have it. Good luck on your reading!
P.S. There is a thread on Henri Nouwen which you might find helpful.
