Martin Harold, author of the excellent blog, Fides and Film, has a new article up on the Intellectual Conservative on the soon-to-be-released movie Bella. It's an amazing film and Martin's article does a great job explaining why it's so important. Be sure to read the article, entitled, "Bella: A Powerful Pro-life Movie; But Will Christians Accept It?"
The blog, Exiled Preacher, has a great interview with one of our favorite bloggers around here--Michael Bird from Euangelion. Make sure you check it out.
In case you didn't know, Doubleday is publishing the Pope Benedict's recent series of lectures on the Twelve Apostles as a hardbound book, The Apostles. The book is due out on July 20th. Amy Welborn is working on some helpful study materials for adult religious education classes to be released in connection with the book.
Finally, Mike Aquilina, who runs the superbly written Fathers of the Church blog, has a new book out: The Resilient Church: The Glory, the Shame, and the Hope for Tomorrow. Mike Aquilina is among the finest and clearest writers producing works today. His books are always a treat. In fact, I assigned his book, The Fathers of the Church, Expanded Edition as a text book last quarter for my students here at John Paul the Great Catholic University. I'm sure this book will be yet another award-winner.
