SEVEN REVOLUTIONS by Mike Aquilina & James L. Papandrea

Seven Revolutions – How Christianity Changed the World and Can Change It Again, reminds us of an uncomfortable truth. Believer and unbeliever alike, we have all benefited from the Christianization of our world.

Science tells us that the physical world tends to disorder…chaos, if you will. It is easy to forget that the way in which we live and things we have come to accept as the natural order of society are not in any way natural. And it is only now, when we begin to look around and see it crumbling before our very eyes that we ask, “Why?”

The Church and its principles revolutionized the world 2,000 years ago, and this book makes a strong case for the urgent need to re-Christianize our world.

After establishing its thesis of the changing power of Christianity on society, the book lays out the task which we, as people living in a post-Christian world, now face as we set about reclaiming the world around us.

Seven Revolutions is both insightful and articulate. I highly recommend it.

Meditate on the Life of a Greta Saint

We all have our favorite saint, but no matter how much we read and study they exist mostly in our imagination. Mother Teresa is different; she’s a contemporary. I never met her, of course, but still feel as though I know her. And through the wonderful book, Mother Teresa – Come be My Light, I’ve come to know her in ways I never imagined. I marveled at the depth of her humility and holiness as I read her personal correspondence with her confessor and her Bishop. The insights one gains are life changing.

Pope Benedict once said, “Even in the most difficult times, the Lord does not cease to bless his People, bringing forth Saints who give a jolt to minds and hearts…” Mother Teresa was surely once such person given to us as a role model.
This is a must read book…Don’t miss it!

I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for this review.
