Jackson Catholic Radio Station to Host Catholic Authors at Mini Book Fair

Good Shepherd Catholic Radio, an AM/FM station covering south-central Michigan, will host four distinguished Catholic authors at a mini book fair to be held at its studios, 704 N. East Avenue, Jackson, on the grounds of St. Joseph Oratory. Titled Catholic Authors of Michigan, the event will be held Saturday, Feb. 10, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Guest authors are EWTN personality Teresa Tomeo, Catholic apologist Gary Michuta, Islam expert Dr. Brian Bradford, and novelist Bill Kassel. They will be on hand to personally sign their books — available for purchase — and talk about what inspired their writing.

Teresa Tomeo, who hosts the daily morning talk show, “Catholic Connection,” has written several inspirational books, including Beyond Me, My Selfie & I: Finding Real Happiness in a Self-Absorbed World; Intimate Graces: How Practicing the Works of Mercy Brings Out the Best in Marriage; and others. She appears regularly on EWTN (Eternal Word Television Network), and speaks throughout the country with a special focus on women’s issues and the corrosive influence of media and pop culture.

Gary Michuta is a popular catechetical speaker and religious education specialist. An expert on Catholic Church history and doctrine, he is a frequent guest on Christian radio and television shows. His books include Why Catholic Bibles are Bigger; Hostile Witnesses: How the Historic Enemies of the Church Prove Christianity; and Making Sense of Mary.

Dr. Brian Bradford is a renowned scholar of comparative religions, concentrating on the timely topic of Islam and the Middle East. His many books include Muhammad’s Jesus, an examination of how Muslims understand Christ; and Islamic Jerusalem: The Invention of a Holy City, which argues that Muslim concern about Jerusalem’s religious importance is an expression of Islamic supremacy.

Bill Kassel is the author of My Brother’s Keeper, a carefully researched historical novel about the family of Jesus. He is a Catholic journalist and media producer who runs a popular blog, “The Guy In the Next Pew.” (In the early 2000s he wrote a series of mystery novels that helped to develop the modern genre of Catholic fiction.)

Book sales during the Catholic Authors of Michigan mini book fair will be handled by staff members from the Catholic Shoppe of Jackson. Volunteers will be on hand to give studio tours, answer questions about the Good Shepherd Catholic Radio apostolate, and provide refreshments. For additional information call: 517-513-3340.
