“The E Word” 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 the incredibly talented Michael Marchand, a youth ministry guru who also designs awesome websites, today I’m giving away FIVE copies of his insightful new book, The E Word.

The E Word

by Michael Marchand

Lulu, 54 pages, paperback

EWordIt’s true, Pope Paul VI explained that the Church “exists in order to evangelize”. Evangelization is the primary reason for her existence! It’s not just one the things that the Church should do, it is THE thing she MUST do.

Be honest: when you take a look at your parish, would you say that the primary purpose of it is to evangelize? When you look at the lives of most Catholics you know, does it look like they exist to evangelize? When you look at your own life, do you exist to evangelize? Do you even know what evangelization really is?

In this short, easy to read book, Michael answers six important questions about evangelization:

  1. What is evangelization?
  2. Why are we supposed to evangelize?
  3. Who is called to be an evangelist? (Hint: The answer is all of us.)
  4. Where is our mission field?
  5. How do we do it?
  6. What would the result be if we all took up our calling?

The book is a quick read on your own, but the format would work great as the text for a workshop on evangelization or as material for small group discussion.
