So, you want to do some Catholic spiritual reading! But how to begin? Where to take a seat at so abundant and varied a banquet? What better offerings could there be than a return to treasured classics served up afresh and seasoned with select recent works arising from the heart of our own time? And this is what we find laid out in 100 Books to Read Before the Four Last Things. Here are short reviews—written by lay people of all ages and walks of life, for lay people equally diverse—that will not only guide readers through our rich heritage of Catholic works on the spiritual life, past and present, but help each select works and formulate a path tailored to their own background, temperament, and stage of spiritual development. Look no further. Delay no longer. Here is a book that, no matter who you are, offers stepping-stones to a path of spiritual deepening.

“It’s rare these days to be given renewed access to the treasury of spiritual classics that are part of the Catholic Church’s extraordinary story. Marie George has done just that and we owe her a debt of gratitude.”—MOST REVEREND DAVID M. O’CONNELL, C.M., J.C.D., Bishop of Trenton

“Whether you want to check out an unfamiliar writer or return to one who’s already a good friend, this book provides a valuable and accessible resource for your spiritual life.”—FR. MICHAEL J. DODDS, O.P., Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology

“With so many spiritual books ‘out there,’ the difficulty is knowing where wisely to start. Marie George and her ‘team’ have put together an excellent map of the terrain, with great suggestions for landmark texts.”—FR. AIDAN NICHOLS, O.P., Prior of the Dominican Priory of St. Michael the Archangel
