Over 2 billion people on planet Earth call Jesus Christ their Lord
and Savior, so it's only appropriate that Sr. Kathleen Glavich would
focus on the Son of God for her next book in the award-winning
Catholic Companion Series: The Catholic Companion to Jesus is
an in-depth exploration of the life, times, and legacy of Jesus of
Written in language that is easy to grasp for all readers, but
comprehensive enough to be an academic resource, The Catholic
Companion to Jesus delves into the prophets who preached of
Christ's coming, the biblical and historical record of the life of
Jesus, his ministry and miracles, his death and resurrection, the
legacy he left to all of humanity, his role in modern life, and the
second coming of the Messiah.
The Catholic Companion to Jesus is intended to be a catalyst for
anyone who wishes to know Jesus better. The best and most
effective way to know someone is by personal interaction, and
this book offers practical ideas through which readers can open
their lives to the one the prophet Isaiah foretold would be called
"Emmanuel," which means "God with us."
Mary Kathleen Glavich
Mary Kathleen Glavich is a Sister of Notre Dame who lives in Cleveland, Ohio. She has taught every grade from first to twelfth and has been vocation director for her community and for the Cleveland Diocese. When her first article was published, the writing bug bit her and she is now a full-time author and editor. In response to that first article, a bishop in Nigeria sent Sister an airmail letter in which he quoted Mother Teresa: "Write, for if your writing should make anyone more aware of God and their neighbour, then you must write." With that encouragement, Sister went on to have over fifty books published as well as more articles, especially as a columnist for Religion Teacher’s Journal. She has also worked on five religion textbook series for both elementary and high school levels. Several of her books have won awards. In addition to writing, Sister Kathleen gives courses, talks, and retreats. In 2010, she was the featured speaker at a conference in the United Arab Emirates for catechists from six Arab countries. She is also a pastoral associate at St. Dominic. In her spare time, Sister enjoys reading a good book, playing the piano, and crocheting baby blankets to sell at her community’s annual fall boutique.
