Hogan, a priest of the Diocese of Dublin and teacher in the Mater Dei Institute of Education, offers an accessible series of informal reflections on the Gospel of Mark (Year B). Neither full homilies nor prayers, they are guides and inspirations for Christian readers and are notable for their direct approach and application to parish and family life. This work should appeal to most Catholic readers.
Moore, the celebrated author of the best-selling Care of the Soul, has written a book that professes to show a human Jesus who lived a good life. Slight and slender, it thins out the material and message of the Gospels to a kind of free-form do-it-yourself poetry, in which the reader will "evoke the kingdom in [his or her] own style." Surely this, while comfortable to modern agnostics, is not the radical message of Jesus. Moore has a following, and those readers will be interested in his latest book, but his breezy conclusions may frustrate the acute reader.
