SAN DIEGO, Sept. 15, 2020 /Christian Newswire
/ -- America's most outspoken bishop shares his bold prescriptions for the Catholic Church in Light and Leaven, the newest book from Catholic Answers Press.
Joseph Strickland, bishop of Tyler, Texas, is well known for his use of modern media to teach and exhort his flock, often challenging conventional secular mores with the radicalness of Christ's teaching. In Light and Leaven, his first book, he offers a challenge to lay Catholics everywhere: be courageous and embrace the fundamentals of the Catholic faith.
"Bishop Strickland is rightly a hero to many American Catholics," says Todd Aglialoro, director of publishing for Catholic Answers. "At a time when the Church's message seems too often clouded by confusion and shadowed by scandal, his clarity and integrity shine like a piercing light."
This concise but pithy volume covers a wide range of topics that concern Catholics today, including liturgical renewal, ecumenism, crises in the culture and the Church, the critical importance of marriage and family life, the need for deeper prayer and personal conversion, and above all, the centrality of the Eucharist in our hearts and the life of the Church. Each observation and prescription Bishop Strickland offers is marked by his unapologetic orthodoxy and his down-to-earth Texas manner.About the Author:
