In the past, Holy Trinity had a small but active group of avid readers who met once a month at church to discuss a chosen book. The conversations were often lively and interesting. Due to falling attendance, however, the Holy Trinity Book Review was disbanded with the hopes of resurrecting it once interest increases. Not to worry, though, as we have a dedicated group of literary enthusiasts who will from time to time write a short review of an interesting book and post it in Holy Trinity’s weekly newsletter. Often the books will be selections from our church library, or if not, they are readily available at local public libraries.
The Holy Trinity library has a copy of “The Great Reformer: Francis and the Making of a Radical Pope” by Austen Overweigh. It could easily be the cornerstone of any collection on Pope Francis. The book is an eminently readable biography of Pope Francis that explores the story of Jorge Mario Bergogilas’ life beginning in Argentina. Austen Overweigh, the author, is a British journalist who writes about religious and political affairs. (Posted by Joline Boettcher)
