Dynamic Catholic Mega-Giveaway!

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

Because I’ve built up a large collection of extra books and resources, each week I give away some 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 the past giveaways here.


This week’s giveaway is sponsored by Dynamic Catholic, Matthew Kelly’s phenomenal evangelization apostolate. Their main mission is to develop resources that inspire people to live with passion and purpose, bring spiritual vitality to the Church, and help millions rediscover Catholicism (which is important since rediscovery is key to the New Evangelization.)

The main way they do this is through offering extremely low-priced resources—books, CDs, and DVDs—featuring some of the best Catholic minds around. Their Dynamic Catholic Parish Book Program offers titles by Matthew Kelly, Dr. Scott Hahn, Dr. Peter Kreeft, Jason Evert and more, all for $2-$3 apiece (including shipping!). You’ll also find powerful CDs and DVDs for just a couple bucks.

The ridiculously low prices are intentional. Their goal isn’t to make boatloads of money. It’s to help parishes across the country put thousands of books, CDs, and DVDs, into the hands of people who need them. Each year, hundreds of parishes pass out these materials at Christmas and Easter, and engage the growing numbers of Catholics who are disillusioned about their faith or who doubt its relevance.

I’m a huge fan of this model. In fact, my own parish is giving away thousands of copies of Matthew Kelly’s Rediscovering Catholicism this Christmas, which I’m sure will impact many people.

I think St. Josemaria Escriva was right: “Reading has made many saints.” It was true for St. Augustine in the fourth century, St. Ignatius knew it in the sixteenth century, and it still holds today.

So if you work for a parish or diocese, check out the Dynamic Catholic Parish Book Program. Or pass this on to your pastor or parish staff. For a very small investment, these books, CDs, and DVDs can transform the spiritual life of your parish.

One more suggestion: you don’t have to be a parish to buy these awesome resources. I recently picked up six copies of Peter Kreeft’s Jesus Shock for just $18 total, including shipping, to pass out to friends and co-workers who are searching for truth. It’s good to have books on hand next time your Protestant, Mormon, atheist, agnostic, or fallen-away Catholic friend wants to learn about Catholicism. So check out their catalog and stock up.

Now on with the giveaway! Dynamic Catholic has graciously offered to give away a mega-package containing every single book and CD they offer! Here’s a list of what the winner will receive:

  • Osusanha

    I would love to read four signs of a dynamic catholic!

  • Geralyn

    I was given The Seven Pillars of Catholic Spirituality and enjoyed it so much that I passed it on to several friends and family. I was so moved by what I heard/learned that I want to read/learn more to find out how I can be a better Catholic and help others to come back to the Catholic faith. I plan to start with Rediscover Catholicism.

  • Margaret

  • Amber

    How to Find Your Soul Mate Without Losing Your Soul sounds very interesting to me, because I know someone who could really use it! There are several books on this list that I have been wanting to read also!

  • Husker_bruin

    Good stuff!

  • Karen Head

    I looooooooooove what Chris Stefanick has to say about Relativism. “Relativism is not the answer to world peace or even personal peace of mind. It is a disease that is destroying our culture and our lives.” I have read the book but would love to drive about absorbing his great insight, while in my truck. I am more of an auditory learner. Please pass the CD RELATIVISM my way ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks and God bless!

  • Steve D.

    Fantastic idea for a giveaway

  • Tim S.

    Did Adam and Eve Have Belly Buttons intrigues me because I think one area we need to have more orthodox discussion on is how the science on the rise of human beings and the situation of the pre-Fall natural world allow us to come to rational conclusions dealing with subjects like one that CS Lewis struggled to answer- what about animal pain?

  • Christina Channell

    I am dying to read “Confessions of a Mega-Church Pastor.” I have a recent Protestant background in such a setting and would love to hear the story of someone else – a pastor no less – who embraced Catholicism!

  • Mark S.

    I would be happy with the book Jesus Shock alone! let alone all the other great books, awesome give away.

    Wow this is amazing! I would love to listen to the CD “relativism”. It’s a popular topic between my husband and I, but we need to learn a lot more about it before we can start to actually combat it in our lives. It sounds Luke “Confessions of a Mega Church Pastor” would be one we both could read too.

  • Raschelle85

    Love these authors!

  • Kara

    I have been meaning to get “Did Adam and Eve have belly buttons?” For quite a while for my Catechism children.

  • Jason

    For an interesting book I’d say Every Man’s Journey. CD wise I’m going with Raising Amazing Children.

  • Joe Zmikly

    I’m intrigued by “Jesus Shock” by Peter Kreeft. I like all his work, but it sounds similar to “Made for More” by Curtis Martin which I felt was a good, short evangelism tool (similar to Josh McDowell’s “More Than a Carpenter”)

  • I went to school with Matthew Kelly and Chris Stefanik. I would love to read the books by either of them.

  • Janet Marie Smekar

    Great giveaway!
