Are there any particular books that folks would like to see started up here in the Book Study section, that they'd feel like participating in a the book study thread with regularly?

If we can get an agreement of a few folks on a book I'd be glad to get one going.  Cheesy

I think a book that is not too hard would be a good choice.

A book by St Liguori comes to mind.  Smiley

St Liguori will be a good start. Suggestions anyone?  Smiley

****, I need to think about it.  I have a couple of favorites I wouldn't mind discussing with others.

I love to read.  I am new here and will have to join in on this. Smiley

Sounds good , Joyfulmother. Do share your opinions and Shin can pick a good book for all of us to discuss.  Cheesy

There's St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori.. but there are also other authors. I always liked St. Bonaventure's life of St. Francis... And the life of St. Lydwine of Schiedam, we have by two different authors.

With any book folks can jump in at any time and are encouraged to, when saints write the works are the kind where you can do this and benefit at any point.

St. Francis de Sales tends to be quite enjoyable to read..

Just some thoughts. Or even books we don't have yet but which can be added to the collection as they are old enough.  Cheesy

There're also the Revelations of St. Bridget of Sweden.. certainly they always catch the attention.. and read well in or out of order..

'Thoughts and influences are suggested and infused in human hearts by two spirits, that is to say, from the good spirit and from the bad. The good spirit urges people to think on the future goods of heaven and not to love temporal goods. The bad spirit urges them to love what they see, makes light of sin, offers the excuse of weakness, and adduces the example of weak sinners.'

God, 'The Revelations of St. Bridget of Sweden'

Although I don't have the book anymore, I thought it was a good one when I did read it.

What about this book?  It was on the list of books my priest gave me to read.

Quote
TO KNOW JESUS CHRIST, by F J Sheed
(400 pages, 6th form onwards)

A study on the Gospels. Ultimately, the knowledge of the faith is the knowledge of Jesus Christ. The greater our
knowledge of Christ, therefore, the deeper our faith. As the Gospels can seem a little dry to read, this book is most
useful.

Hmm, I haven't read much of Sheed, and I don't have any of his books.

It's easiest if it's a book that's out of copyright so folks can read it here if they don't have it?

I'm glad to see a suggestion being made!  Cheesy

The book I read and reread the most (aside from the Bible, and Bible study tools, of course!) is The Imitation of Christ by Thomas à Kempis.

I'm also looking into total consecration to Mary, so maybe we could also talk about one of St. Louis de Montfort's books?

I know this one is probably hard but how about "The Dialogues of St. Catherine of Siena?"

That's a fine one! Do you have that book already? Who was the translator for the edition you have might I ask?
