Book Review: “We Chose Life: Why You Should Too” by Anthony Horvath

Book Review by Mary Ann Kreitzer

It’s a parent’s worst nightmare — hearing the words, “You have a very sick child.” For a dad, it’s particularly difficult because his job, besides providing materially for his family, is to protect his loved ones from harm. But when illness strikes a child, a dad often stands helpless to “fix it.” Decisions about dealing with a critical illness in an already born child are difficult enough, but when that illness occurs in utero, parents are faced with another issue. The question is inevitable – “Will you keep it?” Since Roe v. Wade made … continue reading...

Book Review: Elizabeth Bettina and It Happened in Italy

It Happened in Italy:  Untold Stories of How the People of Italy Defied the Horrors of the Holocaust by Elizabeth BettinaBuy on Amazon



Readers of this blog know that I have an interest in the Holocaust and its causes and ramifications.  For example, I have already reviewed Joe Keysor’s Hitler, the Holocaust, and the Bible.  I consider myself a student of 20th century history with all of its death and destruction and ideological battles.  Mrs. Bettina’s book was a breath of fresh air for me as it accomplished several things at once:

A Review of Antony Flew’s “God and Philosophy.”

This is not your normal review. I set aside my copy of Flew’s “God and Philosophy” to re-read for the purposes of writing this review and it has disappeared. 10 to 1, a certain other adult in the house ‘put it where it belong’ which is why I can no longer find it. So, I will be writing from memory. I had already read the book twice, so I have something to go on, but that was awhile back. So, on to it, but perhaps less thorough than I had wanted to do.

It might be argued that … continue reading...

A review of my book, “Fidelis” by Jean Heimann at Catholic Fire

Jean Heimann at her Catholic Fire blog posted a review of my book, Fidelis, and I have to say that I think she did a good job.

I have also posted some comments about her review on my book series site (www.birthpangs.com) on the blog there. Click here to read those comments.… continue reading...
