Website Review: TAN Books

A review based on:


TAN Books recently purchased by St. Benedict Press is now one of the largest publishers of orthodox Catholic books in the United States. The site features an excellent design, hundreds of titles on a large variety of topics, an e-Newsletter, online ordering, more than 30 titles offered in eBook format, "Look Inside the Book" interactive book previews are available for many of their new titles and much more.

The site also offers Catholic Courses and has recently acquired Neumann Press.

Unfortunately, this great resource is marred by its inclusion of a few titles by Michael Davies that tend to undermine the authority of the Church.
