Do This for Your Summer Vacation

Gosh, one of my books is a finalist for the Catholic Summer Reading program at Aquinas and More. From sixty-four books, the list is down to ten — and there I am with my old friends G.K. Chesterton, Pope Benedict XVI, George Bernanos, J.R.R. Tolkien, Evelyn Waugh … You get the idea.

Runners-up include some great titles on the early Church, like We Look for a Kingdom by Carl Sommer.

A&M is also inviting people to join online discussions of their featured books, and there’s a website dedicated to those conversations. Says marketing manager Mike Davis: “The whole point of the program is to get Catholics reading during the summer, the off-season, to be more engaged with their faith during this time. We’re encouraging, once again, the formation of summer reading groups in parishes and we will be providing free downloadable book discussion guides.”

Sounds like a great way to spend a summer. I’m honored to be on the list!

Congratulations, Mike! And I’m honored to have met you one year ago on that wonderful pilgrimage to “Behold Our Mother.” What a year it has been. Peace and Joy.

Congratulations, that’s really neat. I was redirected here from New Advent and wanted to check out the summer reading list. I’ve figured out what the URL is, but I thought I’d let you know that for some reason, the URL at the top of your post doesn’t seem to be working. It could, of course, just be my browser. God bless. =)
