Looking for Kings

The Lamb's Supper
Dr. Scott Hahn

Scott Hahn's The Lamb's Supper describes the Mass using the book of Revelation. Through drawing parallels, he shows that Mass is truly a divine event- an entrance into Heaven while on Earth. After reading this book, the Mass was transformed before my eyes. It truly is a book every Catholic should read. Keep your Bible close by, and let Dr. Hahn lead you through Heaven on Earth as seen in the Church's Most Holy Sacrifice. It will increase your reverence and desire for the Eucharist, along with the many other aspects of a Catholic's weekly (or daily) trip to the House of God. An entertaining and engaging read.

Looking for the King
David C. Downing

Tom McCord is an American graduate trying to write a book about King Arthur- the historical figure. He goes to England to do some hands-on research and becomes involved with Laura, an American seeking an answer to the reoccurring dreams she is having. The two travel all over England, become friends with the Inklings (C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, etc.), and have to dodge stalkers to find their answers. Ultimately, their goals are reached in ways never expected: a truly fascinating book. Tolkien and Lewis are portrayed beautifully; the entire book is extremely exciting. Highly recommended!
