Rome and the Vatican
Guide 4 Pilgrims

#1 Best Seller
Vatican Travel Guides

(Color Edition) Experience the grandeur of Rome’s art, architecture, history and – above all – faith. This Guide 4 Pilgrims includes almost 800 awe-inspiring images, from more than a hundred of Rome’s most important pilgrim sites, found in twelve convenient walking tours that include detailed color maps. For the pilgrim, Rome bears witness to twenty tumultuous centuries of Christian history, like no other place. The Eternal City’s abundance of sacred treasures can overwhelm, however, especially when so many tourist guides fail to focus on the faith. This is the indispensable Guide 4 Pilgrims on Rome and the Vatican. Whether traveling there or simply enjoying it from an armchair, pilgrims can experience the human drama that has always defined the Eternal City: from ancient emperors and martyrs, to Renaissance popes and artists, to the enduring legacy of Rome’s architects and saints. Christianity has always demanded Rome’s attention, just as the Eternal City has commanded the world’s. Regardless of the passing of brutal emperors and empires, however, Rome still confirms that the gates of Hell have not and shall not prevail against Christ’s Church. 

"This book is at the top of my list as one of the most comprehensive Catholic travel guides to Rome. 
I especially love the stunning images, interesting facts about the saints and our Catholic faith, 
as well as all of the travel tips included in this book.
I am taking this book with me on all 4 of my pilgrimages to Rome this year."

Based on true but little-known prophecies of saints


The path to the Apocalypse begins here.

When puppet masters control governments,
tech titans control secrets,
and scientists control life itself,
the final objective is
control of Christ's Church.
One brilliant man has a sinister scheme.
One holy man has an inspired response.

Reviewers praise The Rise:
“... very cleverly written ... 
about the power of sin and its influence in the world.... 

[The ending] was very much a surprise; 
it brings all story lines together and is dramatic ... 

[and] hard to put down ...”

“... paints a fascinating picture....
Nowell’s obviously in-depth research ...
gives the story  an eerie edge of reality.”
Michelle Buckman
Author of Rachel’s Contrition

“... highly recommended ... a riveting story
with plenty of Christian history weaved in, 
[it] will be ... hard to put down ...”
Midwest Book Review (5 stars out of 5)

“... more twists and turns than a Hollywood thriller... 
one imaginative writer!”

The Seasons of a Short, Holy Life:  
Memorable Musings of a Poet Priest 
by Rev. Duncan Reilly
Edited by Kenneth E. Nowell

He offered himself as a victim soul - sharing Christ's suffering - and was given the cross of Hodgkins lymphoma. 
He lived just 33 years and a day. 
Yet, during his short, holy life, Father Duncan Reilly  produced a treasure trove of remarkable writings. His poetry spanned a broad emotional range, from the amusements of this world to deep reflections of the next. However, his memorable words were boxed for half a century after his death, even as his last surviving sibling remained determined  that they would, someday, enlighten and amuse those who never knew him. 
This book is the accomplishment of her goal. It is one you will want to read again and again.
