Last-minute Christmas gift suggestion

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | Dec 18, 2013

Having trouble thinking of an appropriate Christmas gift for a good Catholic friend? Let me immodestly suggest A Call to Serve, a book that I co-authored. It retells the story of the surprise resignation of Pope Benedict XVI and the election of Pope Francis.

There’s a quick assessment of Pope Benedict’s legacy, and a short biography of Pope Francis. The whole book is lavishly illustrated: the photos are beautiful (I’m not bragging; I had nothing to do with them). Since Pope Francis has captured the public imagination, people will want to know more about him. Here’s a pleasant way to begin.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
