I’ve been nourished during my own spiritual journey by countless writers, thinkers, saints and of course, the Church itself. This is by no means a comprehensive list, but here are just a few websites and books that I’ve found valuable in my continual seeking of the Divine.

If you are searching, whether an already committed Christian or not, I recommend exploring the following resources:

 

Websites

Word on Fire

With its clear and engaging focus on revealing the truth and beauty of Christianity and how these two signals of the Divine can be used to evangelize the culture, I can’t stress enough how valuable this site has been in my understanding of the Christian faith in today’s world. It’s great for those unfamiliar with Christianity and/or who don’t see the appeal of such a faith.

Strange Notions

The site provides a venue for atheists, agnostics and believers to engage in fruitful and respectful dialogue about the faith. For those struggling to accept a reasonable belief in God or Jesus Christ, I encourage you to check out this incredible resource.

Evangelii Gaudium (The Joy of the Gospel)

This Apostolic Exhortation by Pope Francis is simply phenomenal. It’s a must-read for anyone who wants to understand how we’re called to engage, transform and evangelize the culture.

The Vatican’s Website

For a bevy of encyclicals, writings, letters and documents from the Church, this site is a great resource.

I’ve personally read many of these books, but I’ve also included some that are generally considered some of the greatest Christian works ever produced.
