Christopher This book is very read among Catholics.

Joseph | 151 comments It is a book which tackles heavy religious issues but it's not for the faint of heart. I read it last year and you can find my review here. Here is a review by Joseph: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...

I had never even heard of it, and I've never seen it advertised in Catholic book store sites. Your review was fascinating Joseph. I'm not really sure if this qualifies as a Catholic book, though I can see how there is a strong religious element in the story. But we're not nominating at the moment. If Christopher or someone else wants to nominate it at a future nomination period, we can decide then.

But thanks to both of you for making me aware of this book. I'm not into science fiction, but I realize there have been some great books in that genre.

Oh! That's Archbishop's Chaput's book. Strangers in a Strange Land

Yes, that definitely qualifies. Please feel free to nominate it for our next read when nominations come up. Right now Christopher we are voting for the next read. I invite you to come and vote. Here;
