Catholic Quagmire: The Latest eBook from

By Dr. Jeff Mirus ( bio - articles - email ) | Aug 20, 2019

I have just generated and posted a new (and, as always, free) ebook: Catholic Quagmire: Essays on How the Church Bogs Down. This is a collection of my essays, written between early 2017 and early 2019, which focus on the many ways in which Catholics and their leaders tend to reflect the thought patterns of the surrounding secular culture. When this happens, they fail to address key contemporary issues as if their Faith makes a difference.

Topics in this collection include mercy, purity, marriage, the family, common parental mistakes, the public authority of the Church, false priorities in Catholic leadership, sexual orientation, human respect, and more. All of these essays demonstrate that, when the Church is infected by worldly ways of thinking, she gets bogged down, rendering ineffectual the mission of Christ.

As I mentioned, all ebooks are free, and there are now fifteen of them, in addition to the six volumes we publish annually covering all the days of the liturgical year. Each book is available in three formats: .mobi for Kindle; .epub for other standard ereaders; and .pdf for use on almost any computer device. A fourth option is to download a .zip file containing all three formats.
