This March take a look at these books to learn more about St. Joseph.

For Adults

“St. Joseph and His World Paperback” by Mike Aquilina (Author), Scott Hahn (Foreword)

“You’ll learn about Nazareth — and how it was created almost ex nihilo shortly before Joseph’s birth. You’ll learn about religious practice and education in that place and time. You’ll travel to Egypt and encounter the fascinating settlements of Jews in that land. You’ll also find out how a carpenter worked in those days: what tools he used, what items he crafted, where he got his training, and how he got to and from his job sites.” This book provides an imaginative entry into one of the most important lives in all of history — a life too often obscured by later legends.”

For Families
