Go to Joseph by Fr. Richard W. Gilsdorf
Joseph. Every Christian knows the name. We know who he was, but what do we really know about him? For most of us, the answer is, “Not much.” Now, in these highly intimate, insightful, easy-to-read meditations, the late, noted Scripture scholar Fr. Richard Gilsdorf investigates the New Testament’s most mysterious figure. In doing so, he opens up for us the Church’s greatest male saint in new and exciting ways, drawing believers ever deeper into the Gospels and thus the person of Jesus Christ. Reading this warm, contemplative book is like going on retreat, making it perfect for personal devotions, study groups, or adoration before the Blessed Sacrament.
This new book tells the story of St. Joseph in a way that makes it seem fresh and thrilling and allows you to walk alongside him through the events that brought us salvation. If you have evver felt that the Christian story seems remote or bleak, this book offers you a change of perspective. Read it and relish it. - Joanna Bogle EWTN personality and author
This book, grounded in history and Tradition, brings St. Joseph into sharp focus. We see him as he is, and with Fr. Gilsdorf's good guidance, we can follow where he has gone before us. - Mike Aquilina EWTN host and author of The Fathers of the Church
For those who already know and love St. Joseph, this book will be a delight; for those who do not, this book will be a welcome discovery, Drawing upon the Fathers, and other saints and scholars, Fr. Gilsdorf has brought to light the remarkable life of the greatest husband and father who ever lived. In an age when men need a model of masculine fidelity, St. Joseph proves to be an inspiring example. - Fr. "Rocky" Francis Joseph Hoffman, JCD
