Last-minute gift idea

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Dec 24, 2007

Stumped? Still desperately looking for something?

I have a suggestion-- to be filed under "shameless self-promotion."

Even "the guy who has everything" doesn't yet have a copy of The Faithful Departed, my book about the demise of Catholic influence in Boston. Because, you see, the book isn't out yet.

But it will be published by Encounter Books in February 2008, and you can already pre-order on Amazon.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    ....."shameless self-promotion." So, you should leave the promotion to a stranger?
