A 40-Day Spiritual Workout for Catholics
By Bob Rice (Servant Books, 2013)
This JUST came in my mailbox, and I know I won’t have time to read it myself (and, honestly, I have my Lenten plan. Right? So why not share?)
About the book:
Are you ready to get your faith in shape? A 40-Day Spiritual Workout for Catholics is designed to bring about deeper transformation and conversion in your life. Rice challenges his readers to spend forty days developing a habit that will last a lifetime.
Each of the forty days includes a Scripture quote, a quote from a saint or the Catechism of the Catholic Church, a short reflection, thought-provoking questions, and a prayer. Your spiritual workout borrows concepts from physical training, including stretch, cardio, muscle-building, hydration, fat-burning, and cool down.
Rice talks about the importance of prayer for a Christian: Prayer isn’t an option for Christians. It’s what we do. Imagine meeting someone who says he is a runner but he doesn’t like to run. Or a swimmer who doesn’t ever go into the water. You’d tell them they aren’t who they say they are. Runners run. Swimmers swim. Christians pray. Are you ready to work out? Are you ready to get to know Jesus? Think of Bob Rice as your personal trainer for the next forty days as you grow closer to Christ and strengthen your spiritual muscles.
Set Free: The Authentic Catholic Woman’s Guide to Forgiveness
By Genevieve Kineke (Servant Books, 2012)
About the book:
A woman’s vocation is to love–indeed, this feminine gift is essential to the health and strength of civilization–and yet women cannot love freely without knowing how to move past the personal wounds that are inevitable in a fallen world. In this new book, Genevieve Kineke shows women that once they see the grace and freedom inherent in forgiveness, their natural fear of injury will give way to the transforming power of God’s grace. Addressing both the traumatic and the trivial, Genevieve weaves biblical truths and real-life stories together in a way that reveals the heart of forgiveness: the freedom that comes from letting go and forgiving.
