The center for the Catholic conversation... shaping the lives of 21st century Catholics
  NCR Book Club
Books for Christmas
Book buyers reveal what's hot and what's recommended this season: Navigating my way through the rather subdued hustle and bustle of this holiday shopping season, I visited our largest book emporium to pore over Christmas titles in the religion and spirituality section.

NCR Café is today’s gathering place where you’ll find challenge and stimulation and exciting exchange of ideas in a community without borders. At the NCR Café, find free conversation and virtual companionship in a community in dialogue with today’s top issues and concerns.

It’s good to know you are not alone in a fast-paced world of differing opinions and changing attitudes. At the café, find others like you who want to sort out the issues and contribute their own insight to the search for answers. The voices of ordinary people, of people like you and us, are shaping public policy in new and exciting ways through these online conversations. Your voice matters.

Truth is uncovered one voice at a time. We need yours, you need ours and the church and our world need all of us.
