List of Worth-It Catholic eBooks

The following is a partial list of faithful Catholic eBooks available online whose spiritual value trumps their (often minimal) material price, and which are therefore WORTH-IT ebooks.

  1. Cornelius a’Lapide’s Commentary on the Four Gospels (Loreto Publications). May be accessed through Loreto Publications. As a free sample, the Commentary on Saint Matthew, chapter xvi, may be read online and read/downloaded in PDF format.
  2. Jesus’ Six Keys to a More Perfect You, by John O’Neill. Available at Smashwords and Amazon. Smashwords offers a 20% sample in multiple formats, and Amazon seems [I haven’t gotten it yet] to offer a sample as well. According to his blog Catholic Writers Notebook, Mr. O’Neill is an instructor and facilitator in parish catechetical and renewal programs with a seminary degree in Aristotelianism-Thomism and a year of post-graduate theology at the Catholic University of America. [NB: It was Mr. O’Neill’s comment on my Free eBooks List that had me start this list of worth-it ebooks. My bad, for forgetting that there are many many more Catholic ebooks out there.]
  3. Catholic Voices in a World on Fire: Traditional Catholic Reflections and Reports, by Thomas Storck, Deacon Keith Fournier, Frank J. Capone, Stephen Hand, etc.; edited by Stephen Hand. Available at Lulu Marketplace for $8.99. Includes articles [N.B., Republishes articles from the late great Catholic website TCR News.]


  1. Each entry in the list uses the following schema: <[Title], by [Author] ([Print publication information, if any]),. On [Topics]. Available on [Website with link] ([Electronic publication information]). [Price]>
  2. Please note that this is a non-profit public service for the Catholic Christian ethersphere. So if you have or know a worth-it Catholic ebook and would like it indexed here, which will be done FOR FREE, please send me the information or link in a comment on this page.

  1. Thank you for your kind remarks regarding my eBook, Jesus’ Six Keys to a More Perfect You. As to its Imprimatur: I looked into the matter and found that it is no longer mandatory; however, I recognize that it is, as you pointed out, a proof of the orthodoxy of the book’s content. Perhaps if you could let me know what you would consider an excerpt that shows its doctrinal orientation, I will be most happy to provide such references (e.g., source material such as Summa Theologica, Summa Contra Gentiles, Catechism of the Catholic Church, etc.)

  2. Thank you again for recommending my first Catholic eBook, “Jesus’ Six Keys to a More Perfect You.”
    Your readers might also be interested in two of my other works published in 2011: “A Sign Contradicted: Essays on the Life of Christ” and “There Are No Molecules in God”, a theological exposition of the nature and perfection of the One God. Currently, I’m finishing up a sequel to this third eBook, entitled “Experiencing God as Trinity”, which I hope to publish exclusively on Amazon Kindle in the spring of 2013.
