Bishop Doherty’s reading list in 2015
Editor’s note: Bishop Doherty was surprised at how many people expressed interest in his list of readings last year.
While there has been much more office reading than before, here are leisure books that he has read during 2015 (excepting the first, read in December 2014).
Inclusion in the list does not equal agreement with authors’ points of view.
- Erik Larson. Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic and Madness at the Fair that Changed America. Based on facts, the narrative covers Chicago and familiar Indiana towns.
- Atul Gawande, Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End.
- Gerard McGlone and Len Sperry, eds. The Inner Life of Priests.
- Austen Invreigh. The Great Reformer. Biography of Pope Francis, by someone who lived for years in Argentina.
