Welcome to the home of the Ave Maria Press Book of the Week! During each week of the summer we are going to feature one of the books on our 2014 Summer Reading List giving you inside information and valuable resources for your spiritual journey. We'll share inspiring quotes and back stories about how each book was created.
The Book of the Week (July 28-August 3): Rebuilt
Rebuilt: Awakening the Faithful, Reaching the Lost, and Making Church Matter is a story of stopping everything and changing focus. When their parish reached a breaking point, White and Corcoran asked themselves how they could make the Church matter to Catholics, and they realized the answer was at the heart of the Gospel.
