This just in: Crown Forum will publish a collection of some of the best of Pulitzer Prize-winning Charles Krauthammer’s writings thus far. Things That Matter: Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes, and Politics will be released in fall 2013.
If you’re looking for a collection to read right now, George Weigel’s Practicing Catholic is a timely one — a snapshot of Catholicism in America, in particular, and why it matters. He’s honest about where Catholics have fallen short, provides some inspiration, and it even includes his longest essay ever — which happens to be about baseball. For edifying pre-conclave reading.
