Book Review of PIA FIDELIS

June 28, 2020 (Steven O’Reilly) – Over on the Clarifying Catholicism site (, Clara Gerdes, a student at Yale University, just reviewed book one of my PIA FIDELIS trilogy, The Two Kingdoms.

The review may be found here:

Intrigue and Advance: Review of Pia Fidelis


(NB: An article on one of the mains characters, Julian the Apostate, in PIA FIDELIS may be found here. Please check out the trilogy website here: PiaFidelisTrilogy.)

Please check out Ms. Gerdes’ review, as well as the Clarifying Catholicism site. The site’s mission is stated as follows:

“Clarifying Catholicism is an apostolate consisting of college and high school students who write blogs and produce videos on Catholic Theology. We are dedicated to preserving the rich intellectual tradition of the Catholic Church by defending faith and reason. Our primary aim is to explain and demystify Church teaching that may be misunderstood or difficult for teens and young adults to digest.”

So, whether you are a high school or college student, or a parent thereof, Clarifying Catholicism is a site and resource you definitely should explore.

My thanks to Ms. Gerdes for taking the time to review PIA FIDELIS, and to Clarifying Catholicism as well!

PIA FIDELIS: The Two Kingdoms is now available in paperback, hardback, and KINDLE format–and, later this year, in Audiobook. You may order through Amazon or your local book store.
