Default Suggestions for my next book

Do any members have a suggestion for the topic of my next theology book? I'm interesting in finding out what topics interest you.

Right now I am in discussion with a baptist christian. Our discussion is the body of Christ, the new Israel, the new Jerusalem, so called replacement theology or secessionism. Clarification on this topic and the official Catholic understanding would be very interesting.

My view is that the Old Covenant was transfigured into the New Covenant. In a sense, the NC was contained in the OC, since the Old was ordained to prepare for the New. But then, too, the OC is contained in the NC, since the NC is simply the OC in a new a higher form.

The Jews are saved under the OC, as it continues in this new form. They don't realize that it has been transformed into a new form. But nevertheless, they can be saved by it.

Well that was a short book.

Ron,

Are you still working on the Healthy eating and reducing risk of heart disease, cancer, and other diseases book?.

On the Adam & Eve book, congratulations, I see that the Amazon.com editors have selected your book as one of the Books of the Month.

I wanted to order the Kindle edition but don't want to install this program in a pc that is not mine lol and I see that it takes some space. I have to buy a new computer with an updated server. I definitely want to buy this book though.

No, it wasn't chosen as a best book of the month. That logo and text just advertises the Best Books of the Month feature on the site.

The Cloud Reader keeps the book in the Cloud. You don't have to download it to a computer.

I'm still working on the healthy eating book. Hopefully, it will be finished in a couple of months.

Great, thank you. I got it. That was easy. I still plan to buy the printed edition as well when it comes available. I'm looking forward the Healthy eating book also.

Sacred Tradition, Sacred Scripture, and the Magisterium.

Chapters for the book or pamphlet might be:

What is Sacred Tradition, Scripture, and Magisterium?
Who established these things? and how did they come to exist?
How do the three pillars relate to each other?
What is the Magisterium, how does it teach, in what ways and varying degrees?
Is the Pope always right?
Why do Catholics have a Pope anyway?
Why do I need all three
Sola Scriptura?
Examples of truths that can only be realized by having all three
Why do Catholics believe in some private revelations and how does TPR relate to the three pillars?
Should I believe in some TPR's?

After The Warning- Divorced and Remarried, cohabitation
Steps to take to make my situation right with God.

What are my options in each case?
I am Catholic and separated from my spouse without an annulment, then I remarried civilly.

I am not Catholic but married a Catholic who separated from their spouse without an annulment.

I grew up Catholic, was baptized, and received confirmation. I then left the church and married a non Catholic, either civilly or in another protestant church.

etc....
