Warm Gratitude, a Global Link – and a Hardcover!


Catholic-Traditionalist-gentleJust a very personal little notice to say a few things.

First, I am very, very grateful for all the supportive, deeply encouraging responses I have received from many of you regarding my book. (Both private and public – the latter being mainly on various forums both in and beyond Facebook.)

All of this without reading the book!

The book unexpectedly came out Friday, but I don’t know if anyone even has a copy yet (I myself don’t!).

Thus, I am touched indeed by your ‘votes of confidence’. I pray the book proves worthy of them and worthy of its goal.

In a nutshell, that goal is to explain and defend Catholic tradition, amidst the immense Secular (and New Age) confusion being generated today, in a popular, easily accessible format. That format is part a romantic novel, part a theological dialogue.

Or at the risk of sounding insufferably, cringe-inducingly pompous, I received an advertising email from my publisher this morning which has this:

For all Catholics — devout, lukewarm, or fallen-away — and indeed for all unbelievers as well, Roger Buck’s new book
is one of the most gently persuasive and compelling cases for the Church and the Catholic faith you will ever read.

Beyond that, it’s also a book about Catholic Ireland, although it is relevant, I pray, to every Western culture now being swamped  the ’New Secular Religion’ (as one character in my book calls it).

Beyond my gratitude, just two small announcements.

First, the old Amazon links for the book have been replaced. That is, they’re used to be separate links for Amazon USA and Amazon UK.

Instead, we now have a global link for Amazon worldwide. Wherever you are in the world, clicking the ads and/or buttons for the book will take you to your nearest Amazon (e.g. Latin America clicks should redirect to Amazon Brazil or Amazon Mexico).

Once again, Kim and I are grateful if you can go through our links to Amazon. That way, we get an additional commission, which we can surely use! Thanks!

Finally, I have been slightly stunned that a clothbound edition of the book has also been released at £10.15, $24.95,or €30.33!

So that is another option for those of you who like hardbacks and can easily afford them! (Sales of this will also obviously benefit both us as well as the fine Angelico Press even more.)

Thus, I’ve created a global Amazon button to buy the hardcover …

  • The Gentle Traditionalist Returns!

    New Book from Angelico Press!

    "The Gentle Traditionalist returns with a vengeance in this stand-alone sequel ... this book skewers the modern malaise with the kind of sanity we have come to expect from this author” — CHARLES A. COULOMBE

    ”Buck’s latest foray is a grand success ... The story features the same singular combination of whimsy and surprise, keen social commentary, and deft argumentation as the first [book]. The Gentle Traditionalist Returns appeals to what is best and deepest in us, so that we will reengage with that which ultimately matters while there is yet time.” — PETER KWASNIEWSKI

    ”A brilliant diagnosis of the spiritual malaise of modern society, written with gentleness, generosity, humour, pathos ... and, above all else, love”— MAOLSHEACHLANN Ó CEALLAIGH

    The Gentle Traditionalist


    ”Roger Buck ... in the spirit of Chesterton and Belloc ... takes on everything—from the reforms of Vatican II to the New Age ... a wonderful book.”— MICHAEL MARTIN

    ”A tale of whimsical fantasy, melancholy realism, and supernatural joy ... Buck’s deftly-reasoned post-modern apologetic for full-blooded Catholicism—a Syllabus of Errors in narrative form, a rousing hymn to ‘meaning, grace, beauty, life’.” — PETER KWASNIEWSKI

    "As brilliant a guide for the perplexed as this age is capable of producing” — CHARLES A. COULOMBE

    Cor Jesu Sacratissimum



    ”Buck goes to the heart of the problem paralyzing our broken-hearted world ... moving beyond the spirit of the age to the Spirit who moves all ages.” — JOSEPH PEARCE

    ”In this elegant feast of a book, Roger Buck ... expertly skewers the modern world ... without a drop of malice in his compassionate soul ... to reveal the bright, shining love and truth at the center of the universe—symbolised by the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and incarnate in the Catholic Church.” — CHARLES A. COULOMBE

    ”A great service to the Church ... Buck shows that the New Age is an attempt, however flawed, to escape the materialism of modernity, and that it is Catholicism in its traditional forms that can best reveal the immense reality of the suffering and love for all mankind of Christ’s Sacred Heart.”— JOSEPH SHAW
