I'm always looking for a good book to pass onto a friend who may be ready to hear arguments against contraception or a good book study to do among friends. Here are several good finds with varying styles that may be helpful.
And continuing along the lines of breaking the silence...start a book/bible study with your girl friends!! Many of these even have reflection questions at the end of each chapter.
Adam and Eve After the Pill: Paradoxes of the Sexual Revolution by Mary Eberstadt. You have to take a sneak peak at a great video and website on the book...it's fully loaded!!
This is my first pick for getting concrete statistics and information on the negative and harmful effects of contraception.
Style, Sex, and Substance: 10 Catholic Women Consider the Things that Really Matter
Joanna suggested this one to me and I can't wait to read it. It would be a great starter for for going deeper in faith life, with some really great content, but not overwhelming either.
Extreme Makeover: Women Transformed by Christ and Not the Culture by Teresa Tomeo
Someone lent this to me and it offers a great perspective from a women who bought the feminist ideal who tells of her conversion. Another great introduction to faith, supported with statistics and research.
The Catholics Next Door: The Adventures of Imperfect Living by Gregg and Jennifer Willits. You can check out their video here and their take on why they wrote the book.
I'm off to download to the Nook ;) Hope some of them are LendMe's! Happy Reading and NFP Week!!
