On The Way Back Home

"On the Way Back Home" is a simple road map to our true home - the Church.  If it is true that "all roads lead to Rome" - It is equally true that Father Linden's map shows the simplest, most trouble-free route.  Step by step, with simple, yet masterful logic, he shows the non-Catholic "home" not only by the light of Faith but by the light of Reason  

Father Linden is a native of Milwaukee, and graduated from Marquette University, entering the Society of Jesus in California in 1914.  From 1918 to 1921 he studied philosophy at Mount St.  Michael's, Hillyard, Washington, taught at Loyola college in Los Angeles, and then went to Ore Place Hastings, England, to continue his theological training.  He was ordained in Dublin in 1925.

Completing this theological studies at St. Louis University, he was assigned to Gonzaga University in Spokane, and has been a faculty member there since 1928.  He has been regent of the university's school of law since 1932.

Father Linden's literary works include a text on fundamental religion, a biographical pamphlet entitled "God's Boy, Tommy," and another popular work in the LUMEN series of Catholic pocket books "Come With Me to Mass."
