Available to view until Friday night.

The next chapters will be available from Saturday 25 November (London/Dublin time). Book 9 is the final book.

There are 144 chapters altogether, spread over nine books. Books 7 to 9 are currently reserved for print only, as the books have only just been published (November 2017). But if you stick with us on here, you will eventually be able to read all the available chapters. If you’re new to this, it is best to start with Book 1, and leave later books until you come to them, though feel free to dip in.

In buying the books, you will help us to continue the work of producing the chapters, bringing Fr John’s text to life. Any profits will go to the Rural Libraries Project in Peru, which was set up by Fr John. See information about the project here in a Spanish language blog (there is a Google translation button). Sarah’s Rural Libraries is a way to donate directly to them. If you do, please add the code JSOG after your name, so we know you got there from here.

Buy Books 1 to 9 here.
