What’s a Person to Do?: Everyday Decisions That Matter

By Mark Latkovic (2013, Our Sunday Visitor)

About the book:

What’s a person to do — especially when there is no definitive Catholic teaching on a subject? Do we just brush off these pesky moral dilemmas? Do we happily live in the gray areas of life and simply go along with conventional wisdom? Or do we make an honest attempt to face these moral questions head on?

The way we deal with these seemingly small ethical decisions can have a huge impact on our own lives as well as those of our children and families.

This book is an ethical toolbox, providing you with a process for making confident choices, asking yourself challenging questions, developing moral virtue, and discovering deeper happiness.

The Fathers of the Church (3rd Edition)

By Mike Aquilina (2013, Our Sunday Visitor)

About the book:

We hear the voices of the early Church Fathers even today. Their teachings, their guidance, their insights, and their sacrifice shaped the Catholic Church. They defined the canon of Scripture. They developed our creeds and forms of worship. They defined Christianity’s distinctive moral sense.

But who were they? What can we learn from their ancient teachings? What can the Fathers teach the 21st century – about holiness, culture, faith, and the Gospel.

This is the definitive resource for anyone interested in learning about the Church Fathers and their legacy. Ideal for RCIA, catechists, clergy, as well as lay Catholics who want to learn more about the great teachers of early Christianity.

Bringing the Gospel of Mark to Life: Insight and Inspiration

By George Martin (2013, Our Sunday Visitor)

About the book:

The Gospel of Mark may be the briefest of the four Gospels, but it is the richest in detail, giving us descriptions of miracles and events in the life of Jesus found nowhere else in the Bible.

In common sense language and easy-to-understand concepts, gifted Catholic writer George Martin brings Mark’s words to life, focusing on its meaning in the time of its writing, as well as how this Gospel is meaningful for our lives today.

Whether you practice prayerful reading (lectio divina), prepare homilies, lead or participate in Bible study groups, are a Scripture teacher or seminarian, you will find George Martin to be an enlightening and accessible guide to Mark’s Gospel.

Edited by Mike Aquilina (2013, Our Sunday Visitor)

About the book:

Catholic Women’s Bible (NABRE)

(2013, Our Sunday Visitor)

About the book:

The role of women throughout salvation history is important, amazing — and often overlooked. From Deborah to Leah, Ruth to Sarah, Mary to Martha: Their stories form the foundation of Christianity.

At every significant moment in the history of salvation women are present, and these inspirational meditations highlight women’s roles as God’s plan for humanity unfolds.

The Catholic Women’s Bible is designed to help women deepen their spirituality and prayer lives by combining the trusted NABRE version with 84 full-page meditation inserts — written for women by women — cover the entire landscape of women’s lives.

    Would enjoy winning “The Fathers of the Church.” Such wisdom from our Fathers; I have never read one book that contained all of them in it.

  5. I’d be most interested in the gospel of Mark – I love deep studies into specific books of scripture and all the insights that come with the depth.

  6. These all look great and would be good additions to our collection, but I’m especially interested in the Fathers of the Church.

  7. All the books look like something I would love to add to my library collection but the Catholic Women’s Bible is the one I would choose right now. Thanks for this wonderful give away!

  8. Wow!! They all look wonderful! The one I would be the most interested in winning is the Catholic Women’s Bible 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win!

  9. Just like Erika, I’m torn between “What’s a Person to Do?” (with its “ethical tool box”) and the “Catholic Women’s Bible” (with the meditation inserts for women). Actually, all of the books sound excellent!

  10. Elaine Rogal on

    I would love the opportunity to win those books, especially for my husband! He is always reading, to deepen his faith and to become a better husband/dad!

  15. Kathy Morrison on

    I would like to win What’s A Person to Do. It sounds like a useful book for myself and as a parent.

  16. These all look wonderful! I loved Mike Aquilina’s book about St. Monica & would love to read more of his work.

    • Oops, forgot to say “why”. Because it ties in Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition, and this is something I’ve been in many discussions about, and would love to learn more.

  17. The Catholic Women’s Bible would be my first choice because I don’t currently have a Catholic bible geared specifically toward women, and I would learn a lot from it.

  18. These all look so wonderful. I am most interested in Fathers of the Church by Mike Aquillina. I love going back to the beginning and seeing how our faith has been the same for over 2000 years! Amazing!

  19. Malynda Garcia on

    I would like to win the Catholics women bible. That way I can have a personal connection to the Bible with all the things that are going on in my life. May God bless everyone.
