LIGHT THROUGH THE BARS
Understanding and rethinking South Africa’s prisons
Babychan Arackathara, MSFS

Preface: Archbishop Brislin; Foreword: Trevor Manuel
“Lock them up and throw away the key”is a cry we hear often in South Africa today. Fr Babychan, a Catholic chaplain to some of some of the Western Cape’s most notorious prisons, shows in this compassionate reflection on his work, even criminals have stories, and crime invariably has roots. 
This book will be helpful for all chaplains, social workers, families of prisoners and everyone concerned with reconciliation and transformation.

FORTY REASONS I AM A CATHOLIC
Peter Kreeft

"Why am I a Catholic is a good question. A good question deserves a good answer. Here are forty of mine."
Each reason is an independent point, so Kreeft has not organised his book by a succession of chapters or headings.
