Great news for everyone interested in Catholic theology. The first offer from Ignatius Press is on prepub. This is the company that publishes the Catechism, the Ignatius Catholic Study Bible, and the Pope's books, among many others. Finally we should be able to get some really high quality modern Catholic theology, and not just old public domain stuff. 

Unfortunately, this first offer is pretty expensive, which makes me a bit worried, but it is Hans Urs von Balthasar, by many considered to be the foremost Catholic theologian of the 20th century. Very interesting guy: a world-class scholar who pretty much puts his own career on hold in order to serve as secretary and nurse to a bedridden mystic who dictates something like 60 books to him -- and who still manages to write even more books himself.

A note for Logos, if you read this: may I suggest you call them Ignatius Press, not just Ignatius. Not only is that their name, it will also make it an awful lot easier to search your website without simultaneously getting a lot of hits for a certain Apostolic Father.
