Papa's Got a Brand New Pet Project


Likewise is a new line of books from my publishing house, IVP Books (an imprint of InterVarsity Press, a division of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA, a member of the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students, and so on and so forth). I've named the guy Tony and the donkey Ferdinand, in honor of Anthony of Padua, the patron saint of donkeys. Check out this wicked-cool legend:

"Anthony (of Padua) once held the Blessed Sacrament high above his head and a
nearby donkey dropped to its knees, causing its owners to convert to
Catholicism; now Anthony is the patron saint of donkeys and horses."


I don't want to hog all the fun, though, so if you're inclined to name stuff, post your proposals.

How about Bush and the Republican Party? Do you think you're sending a sing to Democrats about buying these books? :)

I think the donkey looks like an Earl. I've always wanted a donkey named Earl...or something.

Well, see you've got a built in theme song for your series :).
