  • On his blog Fr Longenecker has a host of "guest bloggers". These alter egos are a range of eccentric and hilarious characters who liven up the blog and always reveal wise and witty aspects of the Catholic faith. The Rev'd Humphrey Blytherington is one of these alter egos. A bumbling Anglican country vicar--he is a lovable nitwit who always seems to get the wrong end of the stick. The Vicar of Great Snoring is a full length short story available as an e-book here for $2.99 on Kindle.
  • Slubgrip Instructs is the sequel to Fr Longenecker's successful book The Gargoyle Code. In The Gargoyle Code master tempter Slubgrip writes daily to trainee devil Dogwart--advising him on the temptation of a confused young Catholic, while he struggles to control his own ‘patient’--an older man who is facing a serious illness. Having been betrayed and sent down, Slubgrip now finds himself sentenced to teach Popular Culture 101 at Bowelbages University. His lectures and meetings, and those of his collection of fiendish guest lecturers are recorded by the security division at Bowelbages and the transcripts comprise the manuscript of Slubgrip Instructs. Slubgrip's lectures take the reader through the whole range of the temptations in popular culture that undermine the Catholic faith. While busy teaching and bullying his students, Slubgrip has his eye on toppling President Thornblade and his old enemies--Commissioner Crasston and head of Detention, the tempter Snozzle. Will Slubgrip’s coup succeed or will he receive yet another “invitation to dinner down below”?
  • This collection of Fr Longenecker's essays on the life and works of T.S.Eliot, C.S.Lewis and J.R.R.Tolkien was gathered from his regular column at the St Austin Review, Imaginative Conservative website and various other outlets. What others have said about the book:

    "Reluctant Allies does what few books are able to do.  It welcomes newcomers to these authors, it provides deeper understanding to those familiar with their works, and it offers new perspectives to those who are specialists in this area.  Father Longenecker’s writing is clear and refreshing in a special way and very good for the soul."  — Devin Brown, English Professor, Asbury University, author of A Life Observed: A Spiritual Biography of C. S. Lewis

  • “Father Dwight Longenecker does for Catholicism what C. S. Lewis did for "mere Christianity". Those looking for the way home by taking the path to Rome will find this book an excellent and reliable guide for the journey.” -- -- Joseph Pearce--author of C.S.Lewis and the Catholic Church “Convert Father Dwight makes a powerfully "pure and simple" presentation of the Catholic faith.
