DRINKING WITH THE SAINTS: THE SINNER'S GUIDE TO A HOLY HAPPY HOUR -- one part bartender's guide, one part spiritual manual, with a dash of irreverance
Drinking With the Saints: The Sinner's Guide To a Holy Happy Hour by Michael P. Foley (2015, Regnery History; 487 pages)
Michael P. Foley, the author of Drinking with the Saints: The Sinner’s Guide to a Holy Happy Hour, is the son of an Irish-German father and a French-Canadian mother, so yes, he grew up taking both Catholicism and, according to his bio, drinking seriously. He even eventually became a Catholic theologian, married his wife Alexandra, got a job as an Associate Professor of Patristics in the Great Texts Program at Baylor University, and had six kids along the way.
This book is fantastic fun, especially if you have any relation with the Catholic world or you are intrigued by the saints. The author offers the reader witty and imaginative instruction on the appropriate libations for the seasons, feasts, and saint´s day of the Church year. This is what you will find inside:
My only complaint is that there was not recipe on my Saint Day! Bummer.
