|I Am A Christian
Authentic Accounts of Christian Martyrdom and Persecution from the Ancient Sources
compiled and edited by Anthony P. Schiavo, Jr.
Christians of today face questions that would have seemed absurd to our ancestors. Did Jesus exist? Isn't the New Testament just a fairy tale? Aren't the accounts of the early martyrs just fables?

Originally written in 1908, Three Years Behind the Guns is an amusing, gritty look at life aboard the flagship Olympia at a time when the United States was on the cusp of becoming a great power.

Fragmentary History of Priscus
Attila, the Huns and the Roman
Empire, AD 430-476
translated by Prof. John P. Given, PhD
is a magnificent work. It is logically
organized with appropriate comments added
to the translated fragments to ensure
clarity and a continuous story. The author
is intent on emphasizing Priscus's unique
voice. In this he succeeds remarkably.
Given the fragmentary nature of Priscus's
work, this is no mean feat. The author's
writing style is clear and lucid, and will
greatly appeal to a non-specialist

by Nicholas C. Prata
"In addition to being
an exciting action/adventure yarn and
quite a page-turner, Angels in
Iron is valuable as a miniature
history lesson as well....This is a book
that belongs on the bookshelf of every
Catholic man, should be read by every
Catholic boy (11 or older, I would say),
and stocked by every Catholic school
