Unlike my custom for previous postings, I will not rate each book for 2007. On looking over the Table Reading for that year, there were several well-received books. I would signal the following from the list as highly recommended: Troublesome Young Men, Ike: An American Hero, and My Life with the Saints. Here is the complete list in the order in which we read them:
Edwin Mullins, Cluny: In Search of God’s Lost Empire.
Nathaniel Philbrick, Mayflower: A Story of Courage, Community, and War.
James Martin, My Life with the Saints.
“Circular Letter of the Abbot Primate: 2007”
Steven Prothero, Religious Literacy: What Every American Needs to Know – And Doesn’t.
Lynn Olson, Troublesome Young Men: The Rebels who Brought Churchill to Power and Helped Save England.
Lawrence Wright, The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11.
Steven Turner, Amazing Grace: The Story of America’s Most Beloved Song.
Michael Korda, Ike: An American Hero.
