October 30, 2014 – Fr Mitch Pacwa and James Tonkowich

Ken talks with Fr Mitch Pacwa about “Growing In Faith: A Bible Study Guide for Catholics” (Our Sunday Visitor) and James Tonkowich “The Liberty Threat: The Attack on Religious Freedom In America Today” (Saint Benedict Press) Fr. Pacwa’s book is the latest volume of his Bible study series, and gives readers the insightful addition of Pope Francis’ views and teachings. The study, ideal for parish group or individual use, includes an easy-to-understand overview of each faith topic, background information, inspiring quotes from saints and others, and the option to personalize a topic through individualized study. The original publication of this study, “The Year of Faith: A Bible Study Guide for Catholics”, released in late 2012 for Pope Benedict XVI’s Year of Faith (2013), was one of the most popular Bible studies ever introduced by the prolific Jesuit priest and Biblical scholar. Fr Pacwa’s book can be purchased at: www.osv.com To learn more about Fr Pacwa visit: www.FatherMitchPacwa.org

James Tonkowich explores the history of Christian philosophy from the Church’s infancy through the birth of America and how it influenced religious liberty. Americans are losing what are supposed to be constitutionally promised rights at an alarming pace. The Founding Fathers understood the overriding essentiality of religious practice unimpeded by governmental authority, but time and vast cultural change has eroded this from the consciences of modern politicians. As we watch America teeter ever closer to the brink of moral collapse and prejudice towards religion become ever more institutionalized, one question always surfaces: How can we stop this?

August 21, 2012 – Monica Migliorino Miller, Ph.D.

My Guest on the Quest will be veteran pro-life activist and Catholic author-theologian-professor-and mother-Monica Migliorino Miller, Ph.D., author of a soon-to-be-released book titled Abandoned: The Untold Story of the Abortion Wars. Abandoned has been praised by several pro-life leaders: Father Frank Pavone, Jill Stanek, Joe Scheidler, Teresa Tomeo, Jack Ames, David Bereit, Al Kresta, and best-selling author Dinesh D’Souza, who wrote:
“Quite simply, this is the best book ever written on abortion. Beautifully written, this is about the consequences of Roe v. Wade, as seen through the eyes of one woman, who tells a clear and compelling story with passion but without fanaticism. On a subject that is often heavy and depressing, this is a hard-hitting yet compassionate and moving book. Honestly, I wouldn’t have thought such a narrative could be done, only now it has been done.”
