Father Christian Mathis posted a review of my book Signs and Mysteries: Revealing Ancient Christian Symbols. 

Aquilina succeeds in creating a work that connects modern Christians with those who lived in the first centuries. He invites his readers to reclaim symbols that may be unfamilar while deepening their understanding for those that remain common today. Twenty-five symbols are presented in a clear and straightforward manner along with the beautiful illustrations of Lea Marie Ravotti. The author’s clear expertise on the writings of the Fathers is evident as he easily brings together thoughts from various ancient texts. Examples from Scripture, homilies and early accounts of martyrdom are recounted in order to demonstrate how the early Church was able to strengthen its prayer, liturgy, and communal life by keeping these symbols central.

Glad I could write a review for the book Mike. It may be a good book for our parish liturgical commission to read!
