Ken talks with Jennifer Roback Morse & Betsy Kerekes authors of 101 Tips for a Happier Marriage: Simple Ways for Couples to Grow Closer to God and to Each Other & Joseph Pearce author of Race with the Devi: My Journey from Racial Hatred to Rational Love. 101 Tips for a Happier Marriage (Ave Maria Press) is designed to help Catholic couples improve their relationships by making small changes in their habits, attitudes, and spirituality. Suggestions for everything from the most mundane aspects of marital life (housework, budgeting, and weekend football) to the make-or-break components (forgiveness, kindness, prayer) help readers to love and appreciate their spouses anew. In Race with the Devil (St Benedict Press) you will learn that Joseph Pearce, the world’s foremost Catholic biographer, was a leader of a British-nationalist, white-supremacist group. Before he published books highlighting and celebrating the great Catholic cultural tradition, he disseminated literature extolling the virtues of the white race, and calling for the banishment of all non-white from Britain.

Ken talks with Teresa Tomeo and Mark Latkovic. In her new book, God’s Bucket List: Heaven’s Surefire Way to Happiness in This Life and Beyond (Image) Teresa examines what God wants for each of us: mercy, fruitfulness, fellowship, and peace, just to name a few, and will explain what the Christian faith teaches about these gifts and how we can begin to achieve and cross out, one by one, the items on that heavenly list. In his book What’s a Person to Do? : Everyday Decision That Matter Mark Latkovic discusses everything from Internet access to lottery tickets, pet ownership to R-rated entertainment, we’re faced with more ethical decisions than we might realize, every single day. What’s a person to do — especially when there is no definitive Catholic teaching on a subject?
