Father's Day 2013 is just two weeks away, which means that many of us are just getting around to thinking about an appropriate gift. There are always the old fallbacks, of course: ties (compare prices); barbecue tools (compare prices); and, of course, the ever-popular Blu-ray player (compare prices). Not to mention the hottest item of the year, Apple's iPad mini (compare prices).
This year, however, why not give your father something that will last longer than any of the above: a book that combines both faith and fun, to which he'll return year after year. The Bad Catholic's Guide to Good Living (compare prices), by John Zmirak and Denise Matychowiak, is one such book that your father will treasure for years to come.

By the way, if humor isn't your dad's thing, then I'm sorry. (Bad joke; fell flat; moving on.) If your father is more the serious type, check out these reviews of other Catholic books:
