  • Episode 333: David Clayton on Veiling to Reveal: John Paul II’s Theology of the Body and the Role of Clothing in Christian Art (May 7, 2024)

    8 MAG 2024 · In this episode of Author to Author, Dr. Cynthia Toolin-Wilson interviews David Clayton on his book Veiling to Reveal: John Paul II’s Theology of the Body and the Role of Clothing in Christian Art and Anthropology (May 7, 2024) In his writing on the human person and art, Pope John Paul II renewed interest in the nude in sacred art, calling artists to represent the human form "naked without shame." While some have interpreted this as a new Catholic permissiveness, David Clayton argues that John Paul II actually reaffirms the Church's traditional approach.In Veiling to Reveal, Clayton: - Examines how Christian artists should approach nudity to avoid licentiousness, using the Sistine Chapel's recent renovations as a starting point - Explores how good art deviates from perfect realism to depict essential truths not always visible to the naked eye - Guides Christian artists in avoiding the occasion of sin while providing alternative training methods for mastering the human figure https://www.amazon.com/Veiling-Reveal-Theology-Christian-Anthropology/dp/B0D11Z2SC8/

  • Episode 332: David Clayton on his book The Way of Beauty (May 6, 2024)

    8 MAG 2024 · In this episode of Author to Author, Dr. Cynthia Toolin-Wilson interviews David Clayton on his book The Way of Beauty (May 6, 2024) In The Way of Beauty, David Clayton describes how a true Catholic education is both a program of liturgical catechesis and an inculturation that aims for the supernatural transformation of the person so that he can in turn transfigure the whole culture through the divine beauty of his daily action. There is no human activity, no matter how mundane, that cannot be enhanced by this formation in beauty. Such enhanced activity then resonates in harmony with the common good and, through its beauty, draws all people to the Church--and ultimately to the worship of God in the Sacred Liturgy. The Way of Beauty will be of profound interest not only to artists, architects, and composers, but also to educators, who can apply its principles in home and classroom for the formation and education of children and students of all ages and at all levels--family, homeschooling, high school, college, and university. https://www.amazon.com/Way-Beauty-Liturgy-Education-Inspiration/dp/1621381412/

  • Episode 330: David Clayton on his book The Vision For You: How to Discover the Life You Were Made For (April 29, 2024)

    30 APR 2024 · In this episode of Author to Author, Dr. Cynthia Toolin-Wilson interviews David Clayton on his book The Vision For You: How to Discover the Life You Were Made For. The Vision for You is the name of a process by which we, who have been through it, discovered our true calling in life – what we call our ‘personal vocation.’ Through this process we discovered the Great Fact – that we have a choice in life. We can choose to be happy or to be miserable. The goal is to be happy and to become, more and more, the people we were meant to be. We aim to lead a life that is a good, true, and beautiful path to a better life. We call this path the Way of Beauty. I believe that anyone who has a sense that their lives ought to be more fulfilled can benefit from this book if they are prepared to follow its directions as best they can. This book is a description of the transformation of life through a set of spiritual exercises called the Vision for You – it is a structured ‘process,’ or ‘program,’ of prayer, reflection, and good works. You don’t have to be Catholic, or even Christian for this process to work – you just need to be open-minded enough to do what is suggested. The principles in this book come from the ancient tradition of Western spirituality going right back to the Church Fathers. You don't need to accept the Christian understanding of why it works in order for it to work. You just need to take the actions it describes and be willing to believe that there is a God. In other words, act as though he exists regardless of whether you believe it.  https://www.amazon.com/Vision-You-Discover-Life-Were/dp/1980665230

  • Episode 329: Joseph P. Michael, Th.D., on his book Mater Ecclesiae (Mother of the Church), Book 1 (April 15, 2024)

    17 APR 2024 · In this episode of Author to Author, Dr. Cynthia Toolin-Wilson interviews Joseph P. Michael, Th.D., on his book Mater Ecclesiae (Mother of the Church), Book 1 (April 15, 2024) The author offers the Church something that the Church does not currently possess, namely a comprehensive, multi-faceted treatment of the subject of Maria, Mater Ecclesiae, arguing that Mary was divinely predestined to be Mother of the Church from the dawn of creation. The book is both persuasive and provocative, potentially troublesome for those who remain indifferent to the Virgin Mother’s participation in Christ’s mission of redemption. The inquiry spans the intellectual spectrum, on one hand clarifying terminology for the purposes of catechetical and ecumenical dialogue, on the other hand providing voluminous authoritative references that call upon various theologians, philosophers, Saints, Doctors of the Church and scripture passages that are seemingly difficult to refute. At the heart of this investigation lies the existential reality of Mary’s maternal charity and the understanding of love as a reciprocal relationship between Mary and her adopted children. It is the mutual nature of love that spawns the idea that this Marian doctrine may benefit ecumenical dialogue and evangelization by appealing both to the heart and the importance of loving one another. But perhaps the most potentially contentious aspect of this investigation lies in the argument that as the doctrine relies on the principle of mutual love for one another, it becomes abundantly clear that love and devotion for the Virgin Mother becomes necessary if one aspires to eternal happiness. https://enroutebooksandmedia.com/motherofthechurch/

  • Episode 327: Allison Gingras on her book Encountering Signs of Faith (April 12, 2024)

    13 APR 2024 · In this episode of Author to Author, Dr. Cynthia Toolin-Wilson interviews Allison Gingras on her book Encountering Signs of Faith: My Unexpected Journey with Sacramentals, the Saints, and the Abundant Grace of God (April 12, 2024) After a friend gave Allison Gingras a Miraculous Medal, she began to incorporate it and other sacramentals into her personal prayer time and family devotions. She soon discovered that these tangible signs—which Catholics believe prepare us to receive the grace of the sacraments—helped both her and her profoundly deaf daughter connect with God and the spiritual motherhood of Mary, who is intimately connected to so many of these practices.Blessings, prayers, devotions, and objects such as rosaries and scapulars are forms of sacramentals. In Encountering Signs of Faith, Gingras—founder of Reconciled to You ministries—shares the story of how these helped her discern the adoption of her daughter from China, strengthened her faith as she waited to meet her, helped her bond with the toddler, and taught her daughter about her faith.Gingras offers examples of saints who inspired and embraced sacramentals, including Juan Diego, Faustina, Bernadette, and Venerable Patrick Peyton. You will also learn about the spiritual benefits of incorporating sacramentals such as sacred images, novenas, prayer cards, lectio divina (sacred reading), and holy water into daily life. Reflection questions and grace-building activities are included with each chapter.Gingras will guide you and your family to experience these sacred signs in a new way and to connect you more meaningfully to Jesus, Mary, and the saints. https://www.amazon.com/Encountering-Signs-Faith-Unexpected-Sacramentals/dp/1646801415
