Books for Lovers

by Steve Ray on November 6, 2016

A while ago I gave a talk to a large group of couples for Valentine’s Day. The title of the talk was “Men, Women, Sex and Heaven.” I added this talk to my Store as an MP3 file for download.

I promised the group that I would post a list of books that Janet and I have found helpful in our relationship over the years. I called the list “Books for Lovers” and I gave this small library to each of our kids before they got married.

You can see the list here: http://www.catholicconvert.com/resources/recommended/books/books-for-lovers/

My Free St. Paul Timeline

by Steve Ray on November 6, 2016

FOG Cruise Cover photoJanet and I are currently leading a St. Paul Mediterranean Cruise and “Seminar at Sea” with Ave Maria Radio CEO Al Kresta and Fr. Steve Mattson. We are visiting eight biblical sites related to St. Paul, Mary, St. John and more.

Today we are leaving Ephesus where St. Paul lived for two years and arriving on the Island of Patmos (Rev 1:9) in the Aegean Sea that St. Paul sailed though several times.  We are exploring all of this today.

Screen Shot 2016-08-11 at 9.40.10 AMSince many people have no clue about the real life and timeline of St. Paul and his epistles, I am posting my St. Paul Timeline so everyone can get the big picture. Please feel free to print and use for personal use.

When I was teaching my series on Acts of the Apostles (see the audio CDs here) I decided to make this Timeline for my own use, to help me keep his life, his journeys and writings all sorted out.

It comes with a very thorough Study Guide. I also have several talks on St. Paul which you can see here.
