I am in the process of reverting to Catholicism after some time away. I live in a country that is not traditionally Catholic (Sweden) and as a further complication, I am still learning the language.
An obvious help to me will be reading and studying, as the lack of a vibrant Parish is a significant disadvantage. In addition, I envisage a long wait before I am able to fully integrate back into The Church, and reading Catholic-inspired material will hopefully keep my faith strong in moments of frustration and weakness.
Can anybody recommend any inspirational books that I may be able to order online via Amazon or some other such company?
Currently, I have ‘Catholicism for Dummies’ and ‘The Catholic Faith’ by Richard Conrad OP. I have a New Jerusalem NT, the NIV Bible and the Tanakh (Jewish Study Bible - basically the OT). I have ordered ‘Jesus of Nazareth’ by Pope Benedict XVI (hugely inspirational, I gather), and an instructional book on the Rosary.
I’m thinking a few more books won’t hurt, but there is such a market out there that you can be spoiled for choice. Any ideas?
