Visitors to both my websites should make a point of reading the two books I have now made available. Turmoil and Truth and the sequal, The Catholic Church and the Counter-Faith. These books give a very clear and accessible account of the various "streams of thought" operating both within and without the Catholic Church. It is sad that both of these books are now out of print.

Mark Alder has done a marvelous service to Catholics and serious Christians with his unique website It provides a veritable library of excellent resources in apologetics, theology, philosophy and literary criticism. Perusing it is a delight and I say this not primarily because he has graciously provided me a webpage. Indeed I am honored to find myself in such distinguished company. I hope that all of us represented on this site will continue to keep the faith ablaze during this era in which "ignorant armies clash by night" for we know that Jesus is the Eternal Sun and that His Mother reflects His light to us by God's design.

In Cordibus Jesu et Marić,
Msgr. Arthur B. Calkins

The Church Learned And The Revolt Of The Scholars

by Philip Trower

This is a very important book! The ideas which Philip developed in the later book Turmoil and Truth were first formulated and crystalised in this book. I feel this book and the other two books below could be vitally important in helping to disseminate Philip's ideas both in the secular world as well as to the many people who have dissented from orthodox Catholic teaching.

Moving Beyond Vatican II

Edward Short   is the author of several highly acclaimed studies of Saint John Henry Cardinal Newman, including Newman and his Contemporaries (2011), Newman and his Family (2013) and Newman and History (2017).

His recently published critical edition of Newman’s Anglican Difficulties (1850) garnered praise from Ian Ker and Stephen Bullivant.  

In addition to his studies of Newman, Mr. Short's books include Adventures in the Book Pages: Essays and Reviews (2015) and Culture and Abortion (2013), both of which are available from Gracewing.  

Currently, he is at work on Newman and his Critics, which Bloomsbury will publish in 2022.

Edward Short lives in New York with his wife and two young children. 

Responsibility for the overall website rests with myself, but the particular opinions and theological views expressed are those of the individual authors.
