Book Reviews

In this upcoming year, a year of faith, I hope to write weekly book reviews on the two dozen books in the booklist below.  Most books will get multiple reviews and I intend the reviews to revolve around the booklist’s mission statement: To educate our children, we ourselves must be learning and so we strive to have well formed consciences. 


  • Bible, Revised Standard Version
  • Liturgy of the Hours, 4 volumes
  • Peloponnesian War; Thucydides
  • Vergil’s Aeneid; tr. Sarah Ruden
  • The Confessions; Saint Augustine
  • Holy Teaching; F. C. Bauerschmidt
  • Dante’s Paradise; Anthony Esolen
  • 11 Plays (two volumes); Shakespeare
  • Wesley Hymns; Lillenas Publishing
  • Three Classic Novels; Jane Austen
  • Reading Law; A. Scalia & B.A. Garner
  • The Golden Bowl; by Henry James
  • Collected Works; Flannery O’Connor
  • North of Boston Poems; Robert Frost
  • Stages on the Road; Sigrid Undset
