    NEW BOOK IN STOCK
    The Eighth Arrow: Odysseus in the Underworld
    by J. Augustine Wetta is a thoroughly entertaining jailbreak story. Full of allusions to great works of old, it is also educational and can be read as a companion to the works of Dante and Homer.

    January is the month devoted to the Holy Name of Jesus. We have a wide range of books and resources to help draw you into a deeper relationship with the Lord through this powerful devotion.
