2020 CHRISTMAS FEATURED TITLE
I HEARD GOD LAUGH
What would your parish look like if every single parishioner prayed every single day? Truth is, most people probably have tried to develop this incredible life-changing habit. But it’s hard! Matthew Kelly’s new book, I Heard God Laugh—half memoir, half how-to—is the best companion for your parishioners’ spiritual journeys.
NEW THIS YEAR... A SECOND FEATURED TITLE!
Do Something Beautiful for God
Do Something Beautiful for God is a collection of 365 daily reflections from Mother Teresa. This book is easy to read and as intimidating as Mother Teresa was herself. Plus, you’ll be giving it to your parishioners just in time to start the daily quotes on January 1st!
This is marketing 101. Your Christmas and Easter Masses will likely have more people than any other day of the year. It’s like the Super Bowl of church-going. So, we don’t hand out a bunch of books and hope it changes lives. We know it changes lives and so we hand out a bunch of books.
Evangelization and faith formation doesn’t get any easier than this. In fact, giving out one of our game-changing books this Christmas and Easter will be your largest and most effective evangelization effort this year—and all it takes is a push of a button!
How much would you pay to reach just one person, helping them to discover the missing piece in their life? How much would you pay to reach LOTS of one persons? Because the Book Program only costs $1 per book. Plus, for a limited time, we’re waiving shipping for your parish!*
