Some of you have let me know that you are having trouble ordering my book Lectio Divina: Contemplative Awakening and Awareness from Amazon (they indicate a 3-5 week delay) and Barnes and Noble indicates it being out of stock. I contacted Paulist Press and unfortunately they didn’t have any clear ideas about why this was happening, but I ordered a number of copies from them. If online ordering isn’t working you can order directly from Paulist Press. You can also order copies directly from me, now that I have enough on hand. I have to charge the full price of $18.95 plus shipping (calculated based on actual cost, plus sales tax if you live in WA State), but I will also gladly sign and dedicate your copies as you wish. Send me an email at Christine@AbbeyoftheArts.com if you’d like to order some copies, they make great gifts (especially with an author inscription!), and I can send you a Paypal invoice for the total or you can send me a check.
