Mark Shea Week Continues

Drum roll please . . . the winner of yesterday's book, This is My Body: An Evangelical Discovers the Real Presence [Christendom], is:

Connie in CO

Congratulations Connie!

If you didn't win, and you'd still like to own Mark's book, you can get an autographed copy at his website (make sure to tell him if you want it personalized). You can also get a tape of a talk by the same title. Gosh, you could get totally wild, and buy both. (Mark would sure appreciate it I'm sure, as the kids need braces!) This would be a great book to read during Holy Adoration.

Now, you've all been waiting patiently, so here's the title of today's Mark Shea book: By What Authority?: An Evangelical Discovers Catholic Tradition [Our Sunday Visitor].

A tale of spiritual and intellectual awakening that makes a different kind of conversion story. The book describes how, as an evangelical Protestant, I rejected tradition and held to the principle of "scripture alone" as the foundation of religious authority. But this principle crumbled in the face of attacks from modernist scholars who reject Christian doctrine and the authority of the Bible. This book chronicles how, at first reluctantly, then with mounting excitement, I discovered that Tradition as expressed by the Catholic Church is the only guarantee of the truth of the revelation of Jesus Christ.

Paul, just this guy, you know? said...

I won't enter because I already have a copy, but this is an excellent book!

Wow! Paul the Regular Guy, who's been quoted in the Washington Times, read my blog! So cool!

Hey Paul, you should still enter. If you win, I bet you have a family member or friend who'd enjoy the gift of Mark's book.

Make sure to check back each day. Maybe there'll be a book you don't own yet. It could happen!
