Gathered under a church roof
Christianity is an incarnational religion, which takes deep nourishment from the intimate rapport between Gods life and our own, a relationship expressed not only in church art and architecture, but in writing and reading.
In this Spring Books roundup, we bring together such topics as spiritual classics, corporate irresponsibility, parish structure and management, monasteries, dying, Mary the Mother of God, Catholic social teaching and modern church history. Like a church roof, this issue shelters a diverse population gathered together for your consideration.
