    I'll have to look into that text, Randal -- thanks for the tip!

    I have an excellent book that I believe is part of Bossuet's "Discourse on Universal History". The book is called "The Continuity of Religion". Filled with subtle humor, it can definitely keep an informed Catholic's attention. I tried using it as a textbook for an 8th-grade CCD course that I gave the same title. Unfortunately, it is too deep for modern 8th graders. What I like about Bossuet's approach is that it is Catholic. By this I mean more concerned with message than with literary criticism
