13 Powerful ways to Pray by Eamon Tobin
Available FREE through the publisher; pay only for shipping & handling. Click here to buy from Dynamic Catholic.
In this practical book by Fr. Eamon Tobin, you’ll discover thirteen of the most common ways to communicate with God. You’ll also gain a deeper understanding of why prayer is essential to your life, how it comforts and transforms you, and what to do when it seems dry or difficult. Some of the prayer methods suggested in this book can be easily incorporated into your everyday life, while others require taking time away from your normal activities to intentionally meet God in solitude. But the goal is always the same: connecting with God and learning to know him more intimately. When it comes to prayer, there’s something here for everyone. Published by Dynamic Catholic, 206 pages. Includes Questions for Reflection and suggested prayer exercises.
Who Does He Say You Are? Women Transformed by Christ in the Gospels by Colleen C. Mitchell
In Who Does He Say You Are?, Catholic missionary and speaker Colleen Mitchell captures the confessions of twelve more women from the Gospels, and shows how their stories answer this crucial question of identity: “Who does he say you are?” Holding up Mary as the ultimate example of intimate, transforming union, Mitchell weaves together moving anecdotes of her own search for identity as a Catholic woman along with twelve accounts of women in Scripture that are at once fresh yet familiar. In so doing, Mitchell connects in a compelling and very personal way with the Scriptures, inspiring readers to “take up and read” in order to discover the answer to this all-important question for themselves. Published by Franciscan Media. 148 pages. Includes Questions for Reflection after each chapter.
