We invited the authors and publishers of our Catholic summer reading selections to send us short posts explaining why their titles were worthy of your time this summer. If you haven't already voted on your top three selections, go do that now.
Here's what David Athey, author of Christopher, had to say about his book:
If the Presence of Christ in the Eucharist is real, then all of human existence should be focused on that Reality. Christopher Lagorio hungers for the Holy Grail that can be found in churches all around the world, including in Minnesota. And yet his path to Communion is full of earthly delights such as girls, poetry, girls, football, girls, wilderness, and girls. CHRISTOPHER is both a human love story and a quest for the heavenly Romance at the heart of Catholicism.
