Upcoming Books

Delivered on Christmas is the first in a series of ten books tracing the signs of God’s work and patient invitation to Life in Christ. In five Dear Gabriel volumes, Dean shares with his son the legacy of what it means to be a child of God, an American of diverse ethnic background, and a young boy finding his way in an ever-changing, increasingly complex world.  Volume One (Dear Gabriel, Stories of Life, Part 1) should be available by December.

In From My Mother’s Womb (Christmas, 2020), the author shares evidence of Providence at work in a child’s early life: guiding, protecting, and calling him or her to a living relationship with the Creator. “Called to be a Father” will offer a nuanced and multi-layered account of how the author perceived himself to be called both to family life and to priesthood in the Roman Catholic Church.  It will hopefully be in print by Summer of 2020, while its sequel, “Another Kind of Father”, should be available by 2021.  For now, the author’s working on a more intense book asking the Roman Catholic hierarchy to allow some married Catholic men, under certain circumstances, and with special formation, to serve as priests – in other words to end its total prohibition against married clergy in the Latin Rite.
