Publisher's Summary

On Faith is an inspiring collection of the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's reflections on his own faith, on the challenges that religious believers face in modern America, and on the religious freedoms protected by the Constitution. Featuring a personal introduction by Justice Scalia's son Father Paul Scalia, this volume will enrich every listener's understanding of the legendary justice.

Antonin Scalia reflected deeply on matters of religion and shared his insights with many audiences over the course of his remarkable career. As a Supreme Court justice for three decades, he vigorously defended the American constitutional tradition of allowing religion a prominent place in the public square. As a man of faith, he recognized the special challenges of living a distinctively religious life in modern America, and he inspired other believers to meet those challenges.

This volume contains Justice Scalia's incisive thoughts on these matters, laced with his characteristic wit. It includes outstanding speeches featured in Scalia Speaks and also draws from his Supreme Court opinions and his articles. In addition to the introduction by Fr. Scalia, other highlights include Fr. Scalia's beautiful homily at his father's funeral mass and reminiscences from various friends and law clerks whose lives were influenced by Antonin Scalia's faith.

A Man And Book That Changed Me

Judge Scalia's book came my way when I am presently struggling on becoming a Catholic and now I know what path I should travel down. This book is so profound and it will change you in some manner. What a man he was and his son does him proud, along with his daughter.
Thanks Judge.

very powerful

Worth it just for the amazing funeral sermon preached by his son. Rich with moving autobiography, cutting wit, and scalpel-like argument. Love him like Ruth Bader Ginsburg (yes, they were dear friends) or hate him like most of her followers, you cannot fail to see what a mensch he was, on and off the bench.

A powerful story

A tremendous example of mere Christianity from the respected and powerful supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia. One experiences a dissolution of imagined barriers of Christianity and a unity/respect towards Christians and non-Christians alike. Lessons to be gained from various walks of life, which ever one might be on.

Beautiful, Thoughtful, Inspiring

The overwhelming impression left on me by this superb collection of Antonin Scalia’s thoughts on the Catholic faith is just how central it was to his life. Nicely read, too. Very much worth a listen or two. God rest his soul.

Remarkable man

Having Ben and am a cradle Catholic who does his best to practice the faith that I grew up with.... in today’s world the ability to do what we did back in the fifties and sixties is sadly dwindling .... no longer are there daily Masses, especially those at the crack of dawn. This book made me realize with the effort of a man like justice Scalia it still is with us. we just have realize it’s worth to ourselves, our friends and neighbors and out country.... will probably read this book many things in the future....
Thanks

Very personal insight into a life of faith

It’s a privilege to hear this material.

Some of these writings, though a matter of public record, have a deeper meaning because they are put into the context of a fascinating man and his faith. Other writings were very personal — almost private — in their nature. Taken together, these are a remarkable, memorable, and meaningful insight into Justice Scalia.

Get to know Justice Scalia

The perfect book to gain an insight into Justice Scalia’s spiritual thought and life. Using his speeches and remembrances from people who knew him well, this book joyfully celebrates Justice Scalia, a mere sinner saved by grace. The audio performance is well done.
