The Wit and Wisdom of Father George Rutler


About this item

Among advocates of the Catholic Faith, none is more respected or more beloved today than Father George Rutler, whose wise and witty books command a worldwide audience of loyal readers delighted by his clear, compelling catechesis.  

These carefully chosen extracts from Father Rutler's writings highlight the range and brilliance of the enlightened thinking that has made Father such a treasured icon.  

Here, in what amounts to a distillation of a lifetime's work, are all of the qualities that admirers of Father Rutler have come to prize: his deep and consistent faith, his incisive sense of history, his sharp wit, his pastoral solicitude for the spiritual well-being of his readers, and his ebullient dedication to the salvation of souls.  

In our day, many Catholic apologists have dwelt on the essential joy of Our Lord and Savior and His care for our eternal happiness, but none have done so with anything like the wit and wisdom of Father Rutler. For readers looking for a book that will not only instruct and inspire but also charm and delight, The Wit and Wisdom of Father George Rutler will become an indispensable, classic companion.

"A good preacher of the Gospel should instruct, inspire, challenge and entertain so as to draw his audience into a true friendship with Christ. Fr. Rutler has spent his life doing just that, as these quotable quotes delightfully demonstrate. "
