50 Books Every Catholic Should Read

This list starts off with Sacred Scripture and the Catechism--if you read nothing else on this list, make sure you read these. It also consists of recognized classics of Christian theology, history and literature, commonly recommended spiritual reading, and a few examples of great Catholic novels. It does not claim to be a complete or exhaustive list--there are simply too many books in the vast literary treasure annex of the Catholic Church to list them all. However, if more Catholics read this whole list, it would lead to a much more literate, informed and impassioned Church, ready and able to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world!
