Ken Huck host of Meet the Author                                                                                         

Meet the Author

with Ken Huck every Thursday at 2pm Central / 3pm Eastern

I love being a Radio Maria volunteer!  Hosting Meet the Author for nearly four years and I still can’t believe it because each week I have the privilege of talking with the best Catholic authors.   What is my favorite book of 2014?  How can I possibly choose among so many wonderful books!!  Here are my thoughts on my favorites for 2014.

I love conversion stories and we had several wonderful examples this year.  Here are my favorites:

  • “Something Other Than God” by Jennifer Fulwiler May 8, 2014
  • “A Voice UnDefeated” by country music superstar Collin Raye May 29, 2014
  • “Not God’s Type” by Holly Ordway.  Holly’s conversion is about as improbable as St Paul’s! October 16, 2014
  • A book that has had a great impact on my prayer life is “The Better Part” by Fr. John Bartunek November 6, 2014
  • “St Peter’s Bones”by Thomas Craughwell. Because of this book I was able to arrange a visit to the excavation under the Vatican this summer and venerate the bones of St Peter! February 20, 2014
  • For pure fun Simcha Fisher’s “The Sinner’s Guide to Natural Family Planning” March 13, 2014
  • But if you really, really, really pressed me, my favorite book discussed in 2014 was “Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist” by Dr. Brant Pitre April 3, 2014

I know 2015 will be another great year of insightful interviews with top authors of great books.   Listen live every Thursday 2pm central/3pm eastern – rebroadcast Saturday midnight central/1 am eastern and again Tuesday 5am central/6am eastern.
