I’ve uploaded three new posts in the Archived Articles section today.
Red, White and Boo! – Propaganda, Protest and Patriotism is posted in the Film and Television section and is a review of how Americans portray their own history in film–some good, some bad, some ugly.
Understanding Anglicanism is published in the Apologetics section and is an article that discusses the complexities of the Anglican religion and touches on my own journey through Anglicanism home to Rome
How to Be an Ordinary Hero – Introduction – This is a new feature for Donor Subscribers. Before I was ordained as a Catholic priest I ran my own business training company called “Working Hero” which applied the Hero’s Quest pattern to the challenges of change in business and in personal lives. To illustrate the hero’s quest in an easy way I wrote a little book called How to Be an Ordinary Hero. The book is now sold out. I’m planning a new edition, but in the meantime, I’m offering it chapter by chapter here on the blog to Donor Subscribers. Eventually all ten chapters will be available here on the Ordinary Hero section of the blog.
Donor Subscribers help to support this blog. With a monthly donation they help to cover the costs of design, maintenance and hosting. They also guarantee that the blog remains totally ad-free. No pop ups, no promotions, no ads for men’s underwear, the Book of Mormon or those sleazy click pics where they tempt you to see how old, fat and wrinkly some celebrity has become.
Donor Subscribers also enjoy extra benefits. They have access to the ever expanding archives in which I upload articles I have written over the years for various magazines, papers, websites and journals. Donor Subscribers also get a monthly email from me with the Boox Grab Box–this is a list of free books and other goodies which they can ask for free of charge, first come first served. Its a bit of fun and its an extra benefit. I also send out regular free offers and discounts to Donor Subscribers. So, for example, this month I am offering a free copy of my book More Christianity. In previous months there have been discounts for various Catholic websites, online courses and other good stuff.
