Emmaus Road is the official publishing division for Catholics United For the Faith. They specialize in group Bible study books such as Stacy Mitch’s Courageous series and the Come and See Bible studies for children and adults and apologetics with a few other titles in the mix. Even though Emmaus Road doesn’t produce a lot of books each year, the new releases are always great reading and will help you learn more about and strengthen your faith.
IPads, the Internet, Android phones – is all of this digital technology evil? Do we, as Catholics, need to shun the digital age? Eugene Gan, a professor at Steubenville says no. As in ages past, the Church has always embraced media and used it to spread the Gospel. This new book provides seven guiding principles for using the Internet and technology responsibly. This book will be a great compliment to the USCCB’s new Social Media guidelines.
I admit it, I like reading business books. Good to Great and Built to Last are two of my favorites. So of course, this book caught my eye. First, it was written by a former Swiss Guard for Blessed John Paul II. This alone puts the book in a class of its own, kind of like reading a book by a former Navy Seal. This was one of the reasons we selected this as an option for the Catholic Summer Reading program.

I’m adding this one to my shelf.
