At Lectio, we grapple with the question, “Are we to go along with a problem or be a part of the solution?” With the extreme inflation of the past year added to social discontent, families and individuals have been plagued with the worst societal upheaval in several generations. Everywhere we look, prices are rising; and who can blame the companies? Fuel shortages are causing a compounding of sky-high prices for producers and transportation alike. Disruption in multiple supply chains leads to inefficiencies, which then adds to the inflationary pressure.
Honoring this weekend’s Catholic Theological Society of America’ s 76th Annual Convention, Lectio feels that rather than raising our prices to correspond with the increased costs with which we are faced, we’re going to actually lower the prices that we charge for our books. Yes, that’s right! We’re hit with higher prices, yet we are significantly lowering our prices (from 5-30%!) on most titles this month of June celebrating the spirit of the CTSA Convention. This sale pricing is only applicable to sales from our website and includes most of our titles, which range from theology (Eduardo J. Echeverria, Kenan B. Osborne, Peter Phan, Peter Damian Fehlner, etc.) to saints (Oscar Romero, Maximilian Kolbe, Mother Teresa, etc.) to spirituality (Theology of the Body, Resurrection, Grieving, etc.) and even historical studies. Take advantage of this inflationary pushback for your summer reading or as supplemental to your teaching.
