C.S. Lewis's masterpiece of Christian apologetics, Mere Christianity, was about Christianity in general, carefully refraining from teaching the doctrine of any particular denomination. Mere Catholicism explains specifically what Catholics believe and practice. Meant for both Catholics who want a better understanding of their faith and non-Catholics who are curious about what the Catholic Church teaches-and why-the book presents the basic doctrines that Catholics believe and the basic devotions that they practice. It is not a catechism but is written in a popular style.

During the nearly twenty centuries of its existence, the Catholic Church has seen its share of saints, doctrinal disputes, schisms, wars and many other events. In this book John F.

Taken together, they present a short history of the Catholic Church that should be of interest to Catholics and non-Catholics alike.

"ROUTE STEP - Semper Facetious" is a rollicking recollection of service related memories and the fellow Marines, friends and family that helped make them famous. ROUTE STEP marches across decades, from the recruiting office that began my Marine Corps journey, to fun-filled shipboard and shorebased adventures alike. ROUTE STEP intoduces a wonderful cast of characters that left an indelible smile in my mind and heart. It is a tongue-and-cheek tribute to my comrades, a lavishly embellished record of days gone by. ROUTE STEP introduces the likes of John Robichaux, Al Garcia, Todd Baker, Elden Zirkle, Claudia Novick, and Crystal Myslinski to name but a few. They are not famous people, not in the Hollywood sense of the term, but they are wonderful people, fun people, people that you ought to meet. Finally, ROUTE STEP marches into retirement where it pays tribute to my wife's inability to hold her liquor. It examines professional wrestling and relationships with associates. It looks at foul fowl hairdos, considers man's bestfriends, and bemoans the onslaught of my golden years. ROUTE STEP, March!

The output of their work has embraced a wide range of genres, including the neo-noirs Blood Simple and The Man Who Wasn't There, the absurdist comedy Raising Arizona, and the violent gangster film Miller's Crossing. Whether producing original works like Fargo and Barton Fink or drawing on inspiration from literature, such as Charles Portis' True Grit or Cormac McCarthy's No Country for Old Men, the brothers put their distinctive stamp on each film. In The Coen Brothers Encyclopedia, all aspects of these gifted siblings as writers, directors, producers, and even editors-in the guise of Roderick Jaynes-are discussed. Entries in this volume focus on creative personnel behind the camera, including costume designers, art directors, and frequent contributors like cinematographer Roger Deakins and composer Carter Burwell. Recurring actors are also represented, such as Jeff Bridges, Steve Buscemi, George Clooney, John Goodman, Holly Hunter, Frances McDormand, and John Turturro. Each entry is followed by a bibliography of published sources, both in print and online. From Blood Simple to Inside Llewyn Davis, The Coen Brothers Encyclopedia is a comprehensive reference on two of the most significant filmmakers of the last three decades.
