THREE DECADES OF IGNATIUS PRESS CLASSICS ON PRAYER... AT 1986 PRICES!
From: Fr. Joseph Fessio, S.J., Editor To: All our readers Re: your Essential Catholic Library
From our beginning in 1978, Ignatius Press has been publishing Catholic books we believe will have lasting value. (That's one reason why we Smyth-sew even our paperbacks and use acid-free paper that will last seven centuries—or more with good care!) In fact most of our titles from those years and the years in between are still in print.
We'd like to help you create or expand your Essential Catholic Library by offering with each new catalogue or flyer a "bundle of books" at a huge discount. In fact, we'll offer this bundle at the prices we would have assigned in 1986. (That works out to a 42% discount!)
We're starting by offering following three classics on prayer:
From 1986: Prayer by Fr. Hans Urs von Balthasar. As we said then, it is "perhaps the best and most comprehensive book on prayer ever written". (Today's price: $18.95. 1986 pricing: $10.95)
From 1996: Fire of Mercy, Heart of the Word: Meditations on the Gospel of St. Matthew by Erasmo Leiva-Merikakis (now Fr. Simeon, OCSO). Perfect for Bible study and personal prayer. Meditations worthy of the Fathers of the Church, making the Gospel come alive. (Today's price: $31.95. 1986 pricing: $17.95)
From 2006: Deep Conversion, Deep Prayer by Fr. Thomas Dubay, S.M. Practical help to develop a life of prayer, by a gifted retreat master and spiritual director. (Today's price $12.95. 1986 pricing $7.95)
