What Are Bridge Books?

by | May 14, 2017 | Bridge Books, For Authors

Bridge books are books that build ecumenical bridges with people of other worldviews and faiths.
Bridge books are books that explore themes and symbols in common with Catholicism, or who feature authentic Catholic characters but are written from a different world view.
This is also a place for Catholic authors who fear to reveal their religion to their secular audience to have a place where the authentic Catholicism of their book can be tested and given an audience.
This is even a place where some author converts to Catholicism can bring their earlier works to their new Catholic audience.
While a smaller section of our content, we review these books that build bridges between ourselves and others in the spirit of St. Francis’ prayer: “God grant that I may not seek so much to be understood as to understand”
