Set in the second century of the early Christian Church, Grain of Wheat takes you into the heroic lives of the early Christians. Along the way, it shows the beauty and dignity of the Christian family, along with the power of the vocation to celibacy — a charism lived not only by priests and bishops, but by many of the lay faithful. These brave men and women, both single and married, followed Christ and spread his Kingdom while remaining in society. Through their courageous faith an entire culture was transformed, one person at a time, one family at a time.

This work of fiction draws on early Christian testimonies, as well as more recent historical and contemporary books. It continues the saga which the author introduced in Junia (2002) and Marcus (2004).

“Grain of Wheat is the best book of this type that I have ever read, a rare combination of fine prose and greatly moving narrative, all of it built upon massive knowledge of the late Roman world, the Early Church, and Sacred Scripture. I recommend it highly.”
- Thomas Howard

“A wonderful work of historical fiction that gives us insights into the lives of second-century Roman Christians, revealing much continuity between their practice of the Faith and how we must practice it today.”
- Kimberly Hahn, co-author, Rome Sweet Home

“I loved Grain of Wheat and so did my teenage daughter. It’s a highly imaginative, yet historically faithful entry into the lives of the early Christians. To read these pages is to live for a few hours in the world of Saint Justin Martyr, to live with an unforgettable Roman family and their fascinating friends and adversaries.”
- Mike Aquilina

This guidebook was written to help Catholic priests appreciate better the beauty and power of Confession and to administer it more effectively to the faithful. Beginning with the Gospel call to holiness for all souls, it points out ways for confessors to serve the faithful by helping them to acknowledge their sins and to confess them sincerely.

Among other features, the book includes:

Leading insights of classical moral theology on the nature of the human person, including knowledge, free will, and responsibility.Practical ideas on how to catechize and motivate people to use the sacrament of God's mercy more frequently.Effective experience in giving advice to many different kinds of people: old and young, married and single, penitents with special needs such as recidivists, those with addictions or mental disorders, and the scrupulous or lax.Suggestions on helping penitents to make complete and sincere confessions, especially in the area of personal and marital chastity.Specific approaches to guide and support persons to live faith, hope, charity, and justice, based on real contemporary situations.Three informative appendices which include leading quotes from the Magisterium on the Sacrament of Penance, a description of censured sins from the Code of Canon Law, and excerpts from the Holy See's Vademecum for Confessors.

The book draws ideas from the long and proven tradition of holy and effective confessors in the Catholic Church, along with spiritual insights of saints such as John of the Cross, Philip Neri, John Vianney, and Josemaría Escrivá. In addition, insightful quotations from the recent writings of Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI are offered.
