This time, I really am doing a bit of advertizing here.
This week, the Italian publishing house, Lindau, based in Turin, has published a book edited by yours truly. It’s what I would call a St. Josemaria Escriva “reader” – an anthology of texts by the founder of Opus Dei. I chose the texts from a bunch of different sources – homilies, interviews, biographies, and books (The Way, Forge, Furrow, Via Crucis, The Holy Rosary) – and provided a longish general introduction and smaller introductions for each of the 20-or-so chapters. The Prelate of Opus Dei, Bishop Javier Echevarria has written the preface.
Lindau’s website describes the book here: http://www.lindau.it/schedaLibro.asp?idLibro=1142
For anyone interested in getting a quick introduction to the writings of St. Josemaria, it’s not a bad place to start… if I do say so myself. How’s that for shameless self-promotion? Actually, there’s very little of me in the book, so I don’t feel guilty about recommending it.
Caveat emptor americanus: the book is in Italian!
