Summer Reading

The next meeting of the Cathedral Book Club will be Monday, July 9 in the West Conference Room, from 6:45 to 8pm.

The book to be discussed is The Global War on Christians, by the respected Catholic journalist and author John L. Allen, Jr.

The book, published five years ago, presents in the author's words “a rising tide of legal oppression, social harassment, and direct physical violence, with Christians as its leading victims.”  In it Allen presents a very readable and informative background of anti-Christian persecution around the world, touching on myths, fallout, consequences, as well as a fine chapter on “What’s To Be Done."  His call for a raising of consciousness is well presented in this challenging overview of a problem that continues today.
