Admittedly, I am not Anglican, but I found myself re-reading Miroslav Volf's Free of Charge, which was the Archbishop of Canterbury's Lent book of 2006.  And when I do web searches on these Lent Books, they often look interesting.  Can Logos have it as a goal to participate in this?

David J. Wilson:

Those books are by a significant Anglican on Lenten readings, but every year the Primate of the Church of England organizes a group read, so to speak, for Lent.  For 2014 it was http://www.amazon.com/Looking-Through-Cross-Archbishop-Canterburys/dp/1408188473 For 2013 http://www.amazon.com/Abiding-Archbishop-Canterburys-Lent-Book/dp/1441151117/ref=tmm_pap_title_0?ie=UTF8&qid=1399236338&sr=1-1 It is different every year...  This sounds like a great marketing opportunity for Logos to sell us more books <g>

Excellent suggestion

I think that's a great idea.  The trick is to found out the featured book with enough time to get a contract with the publisher and get it funded and produced.  That said, we did that with the Big Read 14 book this year (which is a similar idea).

I'll do my best to get the ABC's Lent book for next year.  If someone comes across the title when it's announced, could you give me a heads up? (Obviously I'll be looking for it too.)

Thanks again for the excellent suggestion, Ken.
