It’s the most wonderful time of the year! It’s a time for celebrating holy days, friends, and family. It’s a time for reflecting on the year, thinking of loved ones, and sharing pieces of ourselves we hope will make others smile.

This holiday season, Fred and I couldn’t be more grateful to share with you that Saffron Cross made the Huffington Post’s list of the 20 New Religious Books to Give in the the 2013 Holiday Season.

Compiled by Englewood Review of Books Senior Editor, C. Christopher Smith, the list includes such favorites as Wendell Berry, Pope Francis, Nadia Bolz-Weber, Jana Riess, Flannery O’Connor, and N.T. Wright.

Glance at the slide show list and consider gifting your loved ones with these narrative treasures. When we give the gift of books, we share the power of story. We share prose and poetry that has touched us meaningful ways and we hope will also impact those whom we love.

In that spirit, please join us for a special book store reading and signing this Saturday, December 14th, 11:00 a.m. at McIntyre’s Books in Fearrington Village in Pittsboro, NC. Enjoy the holiday décor at a cozy bookstore in the countryside and books as far as the eye can see. What better way to get into the spirit of sharing life?
