Benedict of Bavaria An Intimate Portrait of the Pope and His Homeland by Brennan Pursell
I just bought this book at the DeSales University book store. It was on a table of "DeSales authors." I was delighted to see that the author, Brennan Pursell, is a convert to the faith, having read himself into the Church while at Harvard and being received into the Church at a monastery in Bavaria. He is currently a professor of history at DeSales and recently (as in Jan. 20, 2009) gave a lecture at Franciscan University of Steubenville. As these two schools are my daughter's top two picks, I was very happy to note their exchange of ideas.
I will be blogging more about our nine day epic journey through 5 states, via 4 flights, 4 rental cars and 3 hotels to visit 3 colleges. Stay tuned.
