The man who created Narnia : the story of C.S. Lewis by Michael Coren( Book )
21 editions published between 1994 and 2005 in 5 languages and held by 1,061 libraries worldwide
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, The Horse and His Boy, and the other books in C.S. Lewis's Narnia Chronicles are among the most beloved in children's literature. In a strong and moving narrative, Narnia's readers are introduced to "Plain Jack" Lewis and are able to explore his life as a scholar, his friendships with writers such as J.R.R. Tolkien, the Christianity that underlies his writing, and the great love story of his final years. Lewis's personal story is as fascinating as the books with which he has delighted generations of readers. Photographs of C.S. Lewis's world, from the grimy streets of Belfast and the horrors of trench warfare to the grandeur of Oxford and Cambridge, bring his story to vivid life and make this book as exciting to look at as it is informative to read
The invisible man : the life and liberties of H.G. Wells by Michael Coren( Book )
22 editions published between 1992 and 2005 in English and held by 906 libraries worldwide
"For almost half a century H.G. Wells was an international phenomenon, the only writer of his time who could command an audience with both Roosevelt and Stalin. His circle of friends included George Bernard Shaw, Rudyard Kipling, G.K. Chesterton, Somerset Maugham and, of course, the young Rebecca West, with whom he had a long-term affair--perhaps the most tempestuous and sparkling literary liaison of the century. Equally illustrious was his circle of enemies, including the indomitable Hilaire Belloc, who destroyed Wells in a vicious and public argument. Unlike any previous biographer, Michael Coren shows that while many have considered Wells to be on the side of the angels, he was in fact invariably on the wrong side in the major political and literary debates of the age. Drawing on eye-opening new material, The Invisible Man delves deep into the paradoxes that characterized Wells--the utopian visionary and staunch advocate of women's suffrage who was also a misogynistic womanizer; the epitome of liberal tolerance who was also a social engineer and thoroughgoing anti-Semite. Wells has hitherto remained untouched by charges of anti-Semitism, but Coren reveals for the first time his disturbing views on "the Jewish problem" (for instance, he called Jews "termites in the civilized world"), views he defended vehemently even through the 1930s. The avuncular author of Kipps and The Time Machine is depicted, shockingly, as one who advocated concentration camps, racial eugenics and the incarceration or execution of those who did not "fit in." The Invisible Man is one of those iconoclastic biographies that change our perception of their subjects forever."--Publisher description

The future of Catholicism by Michael Coren( Book )
7 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 97 libraries worldwide
From the author of the bestselling Why Catholics Are Right When Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, Archbishop of Buenos Aires, became Pope Francis in March 2013, there were almost 6,000 journalists in Rome to cover the Papal election. Some of them reported on the conclave with expertise and empathy, but others -- either out of ignorance or an agenda -- insisted on asking the same questions again and again: Is the Church going to change? Will the new Pope be flexible? Is Catholicism going to adapt to the times and alter its teaching on same-sex marriage, abortion, contraception, female ordination, celibate clergy, and divorce? Interestingly, these questions center on moral and sexual issues rather than directly theological topics, but they are all based on the premise that the Church is wrong, outdated, in need of fundamental transformation. Does the Church need to change, and if so, where? Where it cannot change, why is this so? In his signature frank style, Coren will explain and outline why the Church believes as it does on many of the most pressing moral issues, giving reasons for teaching and belief, and applying these to contemporary challenges. And for those areas where the Church must change and establish reform -- the transparency of leadership and finance; the competence of the curia and Vatican civil service; the approach the Church takes towards media, the way it deals with the detritus of the abuse crisis; and its approach to the developing world band towards others religions, particularly Islam -- Coren will offer insight into the faith's next steps. The Church is at a crossroads, but perhaps more significantly and accurately, the Western world is at a crossroads, and how the Church reacts to and deals with this phenomenon will decide and define so very much of the future -- of our future
Hatred : Islam's war on Christianity by Michael Coren( Book )
6 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 89 libraries worldwide
-- Why Catholics Are Right -- Hatred outlines the history of the relationship between Islam and Christianity, explains what Islam actually teaches about the Christian faith, and gives numerous examples of the experience of Christians throughout the Islamic world. It explains not only what happens, but why it happens, and deliberately challenges the comforting but false idea that all of this is somehow an aberration and contrary to Islamic thought

Epiphany : a Christian's change of heart & mind over same-sex marriage by Michael Coren( Book )
3 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 12 libraries worldwide
"Michael Coren has had a profound spiritual and personal change of heart. Epiphany is about how and why that happened; the reaction from both sides of the fence; and how the Christian doctrine, when studied closely and without bias, heartily supports Michael's findings. As a middle-aged, very white, very straight, very Christian man, he was obliged, first reluctantly and then eagerly, to explore the complex dynamic between faith and homosexuality and to work out a new narrative. The crux of that narrative: God is love. Honest, brave, and rigorous in its scholarship, Epiphany is a groundbreaking book on one of society's most pressing issues."--
