There are some great Christian bloggers and authors out there who inspire me to continue the journey toward unsullied holiness. Check back, I’ll update this page regularly.
Ann Voskamp: A Holy Experience. Author of One Thousand Gifts, and a woman of interesting ideas.
David Shibley: Founder of Global Advance. My first pastor and one of those people whose words both challenge and encourage.
Father Searby: Warriors for the Working Day. A local priest in the greater DC area who posts great ways for any Christian to grow closer to Christ.
A modern classic, this is a deep dive into the Christian attitude and the true path to holiness. Over 500 pages and quite philosophical in tone, this isn’t a book that you read in a weekend. It’s one you digest over time. If you’re looking for a spot on exposition of the Beatitudes and what they mean to a modern era Christian, I highly recommend this book.
Anything by Josef Pieper
Pieper was a German philosopher with a bent toward St. Thomas Aquinas. Many of his works are modern translations of Thomistic concepts of virtue. I especially love:
- The Four Cardinal Virtues: Prudence, Justice, Fortitude, Temperance. Great introduction to ancient concepts of virtue that are vital to the modern unsullied life.
- On Hope. Possibly the best philosophy book I’ve ever read. (It’s also included in the anthology: Faith Hope Love)
- Happiness and Contemplation. Fascinating read.
This books was written in 1589, so you have to keep that in mind, especially when he comments about women! But I am in love with this book and its simplicity. And it’s only $0.99 on Amazon!!
