More fun with communists!

How the communists use religion
Bundy
1966

Okay comrades, this is yet another gem plucked from a small public library.  This poor book had definitely seen better days.  The cover was damaged and the book had a serious “odor”.  Contents not withstanding, I think we can do better in both preservation efforts and in providing current information.  In my cursory examination of this title, this book  suggests that the Soviets had a great deal of control or influence on the Church.  Anyone know the background of this title?

Catholic Youth’s Guide to Life and Love
George A. Kelly
1960

I might be flirting with disaster to suggest this for inclusion in our little project.  Today, I want to just throw caution to the wind!  This little gem showed up by accident in our ILL bin.  Of course everyone on staff LOVED this book and we passed it around all day!  (I did have to define “petting” to some of our younger staff members!)  For all of ALB fans that can remember the church before Vatican II or attended a Catholic school, you will love this book and the stroll down memory lane!

Reader Advisory BONUS!
For a real fun fictional “memoir”  of growing up in Catholic schools in the sixties, read John Powers’ book Last Catholic in America and the companion “sequel”: Do black patent leather shoes really reflect up?
