After returning from the International Christian Retail Show I had a great time talking with a few Catholic vendors and some owner/managers of Catholic book stores. My Catholic customers have asked me to increase our Catholic category and my Protestant customers are showing an increased interest in why many Evangelicals are converting to Catholicism. As a result I placed an order for some titles and was excited to see some of them come in already. Here are three of them:
Why Catholicism Matters by Bill Donohue – Here’s a short clip from the author on the book.
Next is Catholicism by Robert Barron. Readers of this blog will be familiar with Father Barron since I’ve posted several of his YouTube clips. Here’s the one on his book.
And last we have a book by Jon M. Sweeney called The Pope Who Quit. I’m reading this now just because it sounded so intriguing. I’m about sixty pages into and simply love it.
All three titles are from Image Books (an imprint of Random House). Catholicism is a hardcover with 304 pages and sells for $27.99. Why Catholicism Matters is hardcover with 292 pages and sells for $22.99. The Pope Who Quit is a paperback with 290 pages and sells for $14.00.
