*Thomas J. Nash, Acclaimed Author, Releases New Book, “What Did Jesus Do?”
Acclaimed author, Catholic apologist and journalist Tom Nash’s newest work, “What Did Jesus Do?: The Biblical Roots of the Catholic Church”, has received praise from fellow Catholic scholars and prominent Church commentators. To better answer the oft-asked question, “What would Jesus do?” Nash addresses the more fundamental question of what Jesus actually did 2,000 years ago in establishing his mission to save the whole world. Nash argues that Jesus established the Catholic Church as his instrument of worldwide salvation, and does so in the earnest effort to reach out to Catholics, including those fallen-away, and non-Catholics in general – including secularists and atheists. “As many around the globe prepare to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, and many others question the significance of Jesus, the Bible, and Christianity alike, considering anew who Jesus really is—and what he really did—is both timely and urgent,” says Nash. “The Catholic Church, despite its human imperfections, is at the heart of Christ’s mission to both sanctify and save the world. Given the external persecutions and internal scandals the Church has faced over 2,000 years, a mere human institution would’ve entered the dustbin of history centuries ago.” “The Catholic Church’s divinely founded pedigree is also illustrated by the eclectic nature of her opponents,” says Nash, who contends that “anti-Catholicism makes the strangest of bedfellows.” “Where else can you findHitler, Stalin, Planned Parenthood, Bob Jones University, the ACLU, ISIS, the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) and others finding common cause together? Not to mention that many would be surprised to learn that the devil and his demonic confreres are lining up alongside them in that cause.
*LBN – Editor’s TV Recommendation : Vice Principals (HBO)
Few shows can make you root for the bad buys. In director/writer Jody Hill’s television follow-up to Eastbound & Down, you not only root for the so-called “villains” of the story, but you find yourself questioning your own moral code and asking, “would I do the same thing in this situation?” Vice Principalsstars Danny McBride as Neal Gamby, a no-nonsense vice principal who teams up with the the other vice principal, Lee Russell (played devilishly by an excellent Walton Goggins) to slowly destroy the reputation of the current principal (Kimberly Hebert Gregory) so that one of them can have her job. The lengths these men go to gain power will have you laughing for days. While the show can get a little too mean-spirited at times, it never manages to lose its heart. You may not agree with what these characters are doing (or rather, you shouldn’t), but you will want them to succeed anyway.
