Since I’ve built up a large collection of extra books and resources, each week I give some away absolutely free, no strings attached.
Each giveaway lasts seven days with a new one beginning every Friday and you can enter any time during the week. Check out my past giveaways here.
Today I have the great pleasure of hosting the next stop on Vinny Flynn’s blog tour. It’s meant to to promote Eucharistic Adoration through his newest book, 21 Ways to Worship: A Guide to Eucharistic Adoration. I met Vinny a few months ago and he’s the real deal. He’s holy, wise, warm, and down-to-earth and he’s a master of the spiritual life. His previous bestselling book, 7 Secrets of the Eucharist, helped thousands of people encounter the Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. This newest book picks up right where the other left off, and provides a path to a deeper prayer life through Eucharistic adoration.

“Vinny Flynn played an important role in my life of worship when I came back to the Catholic church. His new work, 21 Ways To Worship, has something for everyone when it comes to developing a life of intimacy with God. This is what we are going to be doing for eternity, so now is the time to begin.”
— Jeff Cavins, Internationally known speaker, bible teacher, author, and TV host
“Vinny Flynn has done it again! With his fun, accessible, and faith-filled style, he gives us yet another key to unlocking the mystery of Christ’s Eucharistic love. This time, he shares the secrets to “keeping it real” before the Lord’s Real Presence. This book is more than just another devotional; it actually teaches us how to pray, and it does so in a way that’s holy, humorous, and human. Enjoy the book. Enjoy the Lord.”
— Fr. Michael Gaitley, MIC, Author, Consoling the Heart of Jesus and 33 Days to Morning Glory
“21 Ways to Worship is brilliant! An adoration chapel is the ultimate classroom of silence — there you will find, peace, clarity, and the friendship of a lifetime!”
— Matthew Kelly, New York Times bestselling author of Rediscover Catholicism
“The Church teaches that adoration is an extension of Mass, but many people are unsure about what to do once they enter the adoration chapel. Vinny Flynn offers a “how to” book for Eucharistic adoration, with many practical and simple spiritual exercises. His suggestions will help people through a variety of stages and personal moods during adoration, always with the double goal of deepening one’s personal relationship with Jesus Christ and maintaining personal authenticity in the relationship. He integrates a focus on Jesus Christ with a Trinitarian theology and with an important Marian component. His use of familiar Biblical images helps the one praying to vividly grasp the task of adoration and remain focused. The reader will return to this book many times in order to squeeze all the spiritual juice out of it.”
— Fr. Mitch Pacwa, SJ, Biblical scholar, author, and Host of EWTN Live, President and Founder of Ignatius Productions
“How do we worship God? Scripture constantly reminds us to adore Him, but how? Help is on the way. 21 Ways to Worship opens Scripture and the rich tradition of the Church to reveal the secrets to profound and meaningful worship of God. This book not only provides the why but also the how.”
— Steve Ray, Author of Crossing the Tiber and producer of Footprints of God videos, Tour Guide to Biblical Lands
“What a great book! This book is a much needed ‘How To’ on what to do in Adoration. As the pastor of a Church with Perpetual Adoration I am often asked, ‘Father what should I do when I am there for a whole hour?’ Now I can answer by giving them this book! Thank you!”
— Fr. Larry Richards, Internationally known speaker and retreat master, Author of Surrender! The Life Changing Power of Doing God’s Will and Be a Man!: Becoming the Man God Created You to Be
