The book that’s up for grabs today is a signed copy of Mike’s still brand new Signs and Mysteries: Revealing Ancient Christian Symbols. It offers a fresh and fascinating look into the lives and the faith of the early Christians.
Sure, you’re familiar with the sign of the fish (though Mike will help you realize the depth and the danger represented by that symbol that we so blithely slap on bumper stickers today). But do you know about the philosopher? (It features prominently in Pope Benedict XVI’s Spe Salvi, by the way.) Or the dolphin?
The book offers rich insights into the faith that we share with those early Christians. It also includes many beautiful illustrations by the accomplished artist Lea Marie Ravotti, and is printed very beautifully (the print, for example, is brown rather than black).
