Drum Roll Please

And the winners of Bible Stories for Children [Sophia Institute Press] are:

76 Susie in KS
12 Beth in MI
150 Kathy in TX

Congratulations winners!!!! If you didn't win and you want to purchase this book, remember that Sophia is having a 25% off sale until Dec. 17. All the detail are at their website.

I have 3 copies of today's book, The Blood-Red Crescent: A Novel by Henry Garnett. This piece of historical fiction was originally published in 1960 and is all about the Battle of Lepanto. It would be good for a middle school or high school student. The author begins the book by giving the reader the facts so you can pick out the fiction from the real history. The Blood-Red Crescent is part of Sophia Institute Press' new imprint for Catholic Fiction: Imagio.

This book is featured in For the Love of Literature.

f you'd like to learn more about the Battle of Lepanto, because after all we parents should be reading alongside our children, I recommend Lepanto by G. K. Chesterton, edited by Dale Ahlquist [Ignatius Press]. This book is also featured in For the Love of Literature. Chesterton’s poetry shines in this masterpiece of rhyme, rhythm, and alliteration. The Ignatius commentary edition is worth obtaining for the explanatory notes.

Now, here are the rules to enter the contest and win a copy of The Blood-Red Crescent. Send an email HERE (RWitt1776 at aol dot com) before 5:00 AM Eastern Time. Make sure to include your name and address in the body of the email.

A couple of clarifications. You do need to enter the contest each day. One entry per person per day. However, if you have a friend who doesn't have email, feel free to send an entry for her.

Good luck everyone!

Maureen, does this mean that so long as you entered once, you're automatically entered for every contest from the time you first entered? Thank you!
