If you are looking for a great gift idea for Christmas for that Catholic man in your life please check out Angels In Iron by Nicholas Prata.
I enjoyed this book so much I have been telling all my friends about it. The story is about the Muslim siege on Malta in the 1500s and the absolutely heroic defense of the island by the outmanned, outgunned, yet faith-filled knights of The Hospitallers.
The action is riveting and you can’t wait to see what will happen next—even if you already know the outcome of the battle.
The battle was one of a couple which is acknowledged to have saved Europe from Islam, and the heroism of Grand Master Vallette and his knights will stay with you long after you read the final page.
Incidentally, the book is good for all Christians and others. I bought one for my friend who has been asking me questions about the faith. He absolutely loved it and has been drawn closer to Catholicism because of this book.
Some women would like this book too, but I’d say it is more of a guy’s book. If you have a Catholic male you are shopping for or a husband who you are trying to get re-excited about the faith—get this great book.
Read the uniformly great customer reviews at Amazon. Wonderful, exciting, inspiring book.
