“The Urgency of the New Evangelization” Book Giveaway!

“Find out how much God has given you and from it take what you need; the remainder is needed by others.” – St. Augustine

Since I’ve built up a large collection of extra books and resources, every week I give some away absolutely free, no strings attached.

Each giveaway lasts seven days with a new one beginning every Friday. You can enter any time during the week. Check out my past giveaways here.


Thanks to Our Sunday Visitor, today I’m giving away TEN copies of Ralph Martin’s new book, The Urgency of the New Evangelization: Answering the Call. (If you missed it, be sure to check out my interview with Ralph about this book.)

The Urgency of the New Evangelization: Answering the Call

by Ralph Martin

Our Sunday Visitor, 128 pages, paperback
Released on October 2, 2013

Urgency of the New Evangelization“No believer in Christ, no institution of the Church can avoid this supreme duty: to proclaim Christ to all peoples.” — Blessed John Paul II

With the encouragement of Blessed John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI, discover a renewed urgency and growing enthusiasm for sharing the Gospel with those in your life, both non-believers and those who are no longer practicing their faith.

In The Urgency of the New Evangelization: Answering the Call, Ralph Martin explains:

  • It’s not just a churchy buzzword
  • It’s not just for priests and missionaries to carry out
  • YOU and every individual Catholic play a role
  • It is literally a matter of life or death for everyone in your life
  • And…it’s not as hard as you think

    Sounds like another great way to learn more about the new evangelization.

  • Patrick D Gamble

    Because I think Ralph Martin is great at explaining the new evangelization, and I love the work he does with Renewal Ministries. I’m currently going through the series of booklets on the new evangelization published by the Knights of Columbus. Many people define it differently, and I’d like to see if the KofC and Ralph Martin have the same understanding.

  • Jim Maguire

    just say Ralph Martin in Denver a few weeks ago. Sounds like a great book.

  • Roberta B.

    Would love to share this book with my bible study buddies

  • Marcus

    This looks like a great resource for reminding us of the importance of the New Evangelization!

  • Andy E

    This sounds like a very interesting book! I would love to gain some inspiration/advice on how to evangelize better in my daily life.

  • Mike

    My immediate family includes people who have fallen away, and others who still go through the motions but without deep conviction.

  • Karen Head

    Being a part of a lay Catholic organization I think this book can be of great benefit for our ministry!

  • Guest

    OK….I am entering a lot but no book yet….I would loooooooove this one 😀

  • 3summerfun

    Such an important issue!!! Thanks for the opportunity!

  • Karen

    I would love to read more about the New Evangelization.

  • Chip98

    Ralph Martin is one of the heavy hitters in evangelization

  • Because I want to be a force for our faith and help change this culture by spreading the gospel and evangelize as far and wide as I can.

  • Theresa Sismilich evangelize self and pay it forward.

  • Madeline Kraemer

    I love reading.

  • cass

    Im just going to say it looks like an interesting read

  • Connie Naylor

    Since we are all called to evangelize, this would be a good way to start learning about how to do it and to learn that there is an urgency to evangelize. We need to reach as many of our brothers and sisters as possible.

  • aslide

    At our parish we’re in the process of trying to implement an evangelization program based on the FOCUS model (Fellowship of Catholic University Students), so I think the insights from this book could help us on our journey.

  • DianeVa

    Ralph Martin is a gem in the Catholic Church. His books are great- The Fulfillment of All Desire is the best on the spiritual life! WIll Many BE Saved…hard read but essential for the New Evangelization. Renewal Ministries is one of the best in educating the laity on the Holy SPirit working in our lives and promoting the New Evangelization. No wonder he was a key person involved with the Synod on the NE! I’d love to read this book and add it to my growing library.

  • Greg Cook

    Looks good.

  • Colleen

    I need some great new tools!!! #comeonbrandonpickme


    excellent resource so we can know where to go and what to do

  • Matthew

    Getting a different point of view on how to effectively live out the New Evangelization is always beneficial!

  • Kevin Noles

    Always interested in a book about evangelizing.

  • Bethie McCarthy

    I love Ralph Martin’s books! Would love to read this one, and put it to use!

  • Paul G

    Step 1: Participating in Lectio Divina at our Parish Life Center…

  • Caleb Green

    I’m missing a sense of urgency to spread the Gospel in my own life, I’m hoping this book can inspire me to get more of a move on.

  • Christopher Lushis

    To evangelize myself and others, and because this is one of the required books for the New Evangelization class at Holy Cross College that is assigned for later in the semester.

  • Dan

    I would love to win the book because I read Martin’s ‘The Fulfillment of All Desire,’ and it was a phenomenal read. I’m sure this book will be just as insightful.

  • I missed this one. Ralph Martin is really turning them out isn’t he? He’s such a great resource.

  • Elizabeth A. Araujo

    I’ve been wondering how I can play a part in the new evangelization. I’ve started a blog but I would like to do more! This book seems awesome!

  • Raschelle

    I love free Catholic books and am in the “business” of evangelizing! 🙂
