Weekly Giveaway (10/12)

“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, every week I give away some absolutely free, no strings attached.

Each giveaway lasts seven days with a new one beginning each Friday, and you can enter any time during the week. Check out the past giveaways items here.


Thanks to Ave Maria Press, this week’s giveaway features TWO copies of two different books. Four randomly chosen winners will receive a copy of either:

Here’s what I said about the books in my reviews earlier this week:

From beginning to end, “From Willow Creek to Sacred Heart is a poetic, honest, and raw. It’s one of the most beautiful spiritual memoirs I’ve read, bearing the same mesmerizing glow as Day’s Long Loneliness and Thomas Merton’s Seven Storey Mountain. If you liked those classic memoirs, you’ll certainly enjoy From Willow Creek to Sacred Heart.”

“When it comes to homosexuality, the Church’s basic teachings are clear. She condemns same-sex activity while considering same-sex attraction disordered, though not objectively sinful. Within those two bounds, however, lies a lot of gray area.

If you’d like more clarity on what the Church teaches about homosexuality, or insights on how to sensitively respond to these oft-maligned brothers and sisters, Catholic Teaching on Homosexuality is a helpful solution.”


In order to win this week’s giveaway, leave a comment below answering this question:

What’s the best book you’ve read in the last year?


The winner will be randomly selected next Friday and the giveaway item will be sent out, free-of-charge, shortly thereafter.


The drawing is now closed. Congratulations to Mark S., Rachael J., David B., and Jacqueline W. for winning this week! Check your e-mail for instructions on receiving the book. If you don’t see an e-mail from me, check your spam box—apparently e-mails with “giveaway” in the title are prone to end up there.

In the future I’ll be giving away more books and resources, sometimes multiple items per giveaway! So subscribe via feed reader or email to ensure you never miss your chance to win.
