‘What they’re reading’ — Archbishop John C. Nienstedt

“What they’re reading” appears as an occasional series in MinnPost’s Book Club Club section. We’re asking well-known and not-so-well-known Minnesotans to tell us about the books they’re reading and recommending to others — and why. In today’s installment, we hear from John C. Nienstedt, Archbishop of St. Paul and Minneapolis.

I have read four spy novels this summer, but my serious reading has included:

“Jesus of Nazareth” (Vol. 1) by Pope Benedict XVI

“The Future Church: How Ten Trends Are Revolutionizing the Catholic Church” by John L. Allen, Jr.

“Earthen Vessels: The Practice of Personal Prayer According to the Patristic Tradition”  by Gabriel Bunge, O.S.B.
