“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 past giveaways here.
Thanks to my friends at Logos, this week’s giveaway is the most valuable I’ve ever done. It’s a complete Verbum Basic software package, which includes the powerful Verbum software and over 185 books and resources—a collection worth over $2,700! Here’s what you’ll get:
- The Catechism of the Catholic Church
- The Lectionary
- 39 volumes of the writings of the Church Fathers
- 5 English Bibles, plus the Latin Vulgate
- 29 volumes of theology and Scripture studies
- 15 Scripture Commentaries
- 7 volumes of Church Documents, including the extensive Sources of Catholic Dogma
- 30 powerful Logos 5 features
- Extensive Maps, Infographics, and other media
- 27 Reference works
In my review of the new Verbum software, I described it as “the greatest Biblical tool ever available to the Church,” something St. Jerome, St. Augustine, or St. Thomas would have loved to get their hands on. I also highlighted the new Catechism features, which allow you to study the text like never before:
“With the Catechism of the Catholic Church Collection, thousands of the Catechism’s citations come alive, linking to the original documents. The Collection allows you to get behind the Catechism’s summary of the faith and into the primary sources themselves. The Collection includes the most important texts cited by the Catechism and so allows one to see not just what the contemporary Catholic Church teaches, but what it bases this teaching on.
What’s more, the Catechism itself can be used as a type of commentary on the other texts in the collection. For example, one can quickly find every instance of the Catechism citing a certain document of Vatican II or a particular Bible verse. The Collection includes the lectionary of the Catholic Church, so the Catechism becomes an automatic companion to the daily readings.”
