Weekly Giveaway (4/20)

“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 duplicate books and resources, each week I give away one or more items, absolutely free, no strings attached.

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

Truth and Life Dramatized Audio Bible New Testament

This week’s giveaway includes THREE brand new copies of the Truth and Life Dramatized Audio Bible New Testament.

I mentioned in my portable monastery post that I’ve been listening to this series for a while and love it. The readings are not just boring recitations. They’re true performances, complete with aural effects, stirring music, and the emotion you’d expect from a Broadway musical. The stories really come alive and immerse you in the action.

Over 70 renowned actors from three continents have shared their talents including Neal McDonough, Julia Ormond, Blair Underwoord, Michael York, Stacy Keach, and Kristen Bell. The series was produced by well known EWTN-host Raymond Arroyo who says,

“They’re not just reading. These actors are performing, sharing these stories in the same way they were originally communicated—passed from person to person as part of an oral tradition. The stories come alive (think radio drama style with sound effects and original music), propelling us right into history, the way it might have happened.”

Best of all, the audio Bible is endorsed by the Vatican. It uses the RSV-CE translation (my favorite),bears the imprimatur of the archbishop of New York, and includes a special forward by Pope Benedict XVI.

Oh, and did I mention that Sean Astin plays St. Matthew? That’s right. With this Bible you can hear the Scriptures proclaimed by Samwise Gamgee himself.
