Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Brother John, a "cyber monk" who studied electronical engineering and holds an M.A. in theology, cofounded the Monks of Adoration, a contemplative order. In this reference to Catholic sites, one notices in his comments both an appreciation for the technical and concern for the practical. In Part 1, he offers Internet information for the newbiewhat is the Internet, what are mailing lists and homepages, and how to get connected, along with beginning technical concerns. Part 2 is the heart of the booklistings of homepages and directories as well as a long introduction describing many sites on the Internet pertaining to all varieties of Catholicism. This catalog of over 2000 sites and endless files in links give the reader/seeker a resource guide to use again and again. Brother John's short comments on each site let one know what to expect before visiting. A large section of the catalog consists of bookmarks arranged A to Z with a comprehensive description. Clearly, this is an Internet guide on par with any on the market; recommended for most libraries.Leroy Hommerding, Citrus Lib. Sys. Inverness, Fla.
