Thanks to Image Books, today I’m giving away TEN copies of the new deluxe hardcover edition of Pope Francis’ The Joy of the Gospel (Evangelii Gaudium).
The Joy of the Gospel (Evangelii Gaudium)
by Pope Francis with Fr. Robert Barron (Foreword) and Fr. James Martin, SJ (Afterword)
Image Books, 224 pages, hardcover
Released on October 7, 2014
This special edition of Pope Francis’s popular message of hope explores themes that are important for believers in the 21st century. Examining the many obstacles to faith and what can be done to overcome those hurdles, he emphasizes the importance of service to God and all his creation.
Advocating for “the homeless, the addicted, refugees, indigenous peoples, the elderly who are increasingly isolated and abandoned,” the Holy Father shows us how to respond to poverty and current economic challenges that affect us locally and globally. Ultimately, Pope Francis demonstrates how to develop a more personal relationship with Jesus Christ, “to recognize the traces of God’s Spirit in events great and small.”
Profound in its insight, yet warm and accessible in its tone, The Joy of the Gospel is a call to action to live a life motivated by divine love and, in turn, to experience heaven on earth.
Includes a Foreword by Fr. Robert Barron and an Afterword by Fr. James Martin, SJ.
