Season 3 Bibliography

Updated: Aug 1

The following list of books contributed to my thoughts about an integrated understanding of mental and emotional health with the Catholic Faith in season 3 of Physically Spiritual. Please keep in mind that the appearance of a book on this list does not constitute my endorsement of the text nor my agreement with every idea expressed in the book. Every book on this list helped form my thinking in some way. For clarity, I have bolded books that are written for a Catholic audience.


If you only read a few books on this list, I would recommend the following five:
