In 2009 Neil McCaffrey, the CEO of Book Center of the Rockies (the fulfillment house for Ignatius Press and Roman Catholic Books) approached me for input on a book he was writing on how to operate a Catholic store. In 2010 Neil published The Intelligent Catholic’s Guide to Operating a Catholic Bookstore. This 43-page guide distills 50 years of Catholic bookstore knowledge into an easy-to-use reference for both potential and existing bookstore owners.
