 Our Description


by David Scott


In his new book, David Scott, biographer of Mother Teresa (A Revolution of Love), presents the Catholic faith as a spiritually fulfilling, intellectually coherent answer to the most important human questions: Why are we here? What can we know of God? How should we live? The Catholic Passion is not an argument for the Catholic faith but a journey to the heart of it, a richly rewarding reflection on prayer, the Bible, sacraments, the Church, and God-made-human in Jesus Christ. These are mysteries, Scott concedes, but living mysteries that pulsate with meaning for us. “We see miracles every day,” he writes. “We see lives changed by the encounter with the risen Jesus.”

Scott illuminates the Catholic mysteries with the insights of great Catholic figures of modern times—the American writer Andre Dubus, the French composer Olivier Messiaen, the Chinese human rights activist Henry Wu, the French martyr Charles de Foucauld, the American reformer Dorothy Day, and others. He directs his keenly perceptive words to contemporary people—readers, young and old, who seek a faith that burns in the heart as it enlightens the mind.


"For Catholics who love being Catholic, reading The Catholic Passion is akin to the caricature of a capitalist giddily frolicking in freshly-minted hundred-dollar bills. For Catholics who are in the church but having a difficult time remembering why they remain, The Catholic Passion is a spiritual aphrodisiac. And for the curious non-Catholic who wonders why, sometimes, Catholics can seem so giddy about their humanly flawed and faulty church, The Catholic Passion is a perky smudge-faced housekeeper showing off the mansion’s treasures, collected from “day one” until today. For any reader with a curious mind, an appreciation for fine writing and a willingness to expose himself to real fixations of Divine Love, The Catholic Passion is the book to read." -
