First truth: I love chocolate. In fact, I can tell you the best American-made chocolates are the milk chocolate coconut clusters and raisin clusters from Betsy Ann Chocolates in Pittsburgh. And See’s Candies makes a great Scotchmallow that’s worth a taste if you find yourself on the West Coast. If you’re in Sydney, Australia, Haigh’s at the Strand Arcade is the place to get chocolates. Trust me. I love chocolate.
Second truth: I love this time of year. There is something magical about the holiday season. The lights, the sounds, the smells . . . the food! Plus, everyone seems happier. The world just feels different, doesn’t it?
Now for the lie. It’s a diabolical lie that’s having a devastating impact on the lives of modern Christians. It’s the biggest lie in the history of Christianity. And it is worth noting that this lie is not one that non-Christians tell. It is a lie we tell ourselves as Christians . . .
My latest book, The Biggest Lie in the History of Christianity, is the featured title for this year’s Dynamic Catholic Book Program, and it will be a real game-changer. In it, I share the joy-destroying lie that has crept into the Church, into your parish, and into your everyday life—the lie that can neutralize you and turn you into a mere spectator—and I also share practical advice for overcoming this lie.
I invite you to order a copy of The Biggest Lie for yourself or for a friend or family member.
I also invite you to do something big and bold this Christmas: give everyone in your parish a copy of The Biggest Lie for just $1 (plus 50 cents shipping) per copy from now until November 19. This will be Dynamic Catholic’s eleventh year passing out books at Christmas Mass. Knowing that Christmas Mass is the greatest opportunity to reach disengaged Catholics, we’re partnering with more than 5,000 parishes across the country in an effort to spread the truth—the truth that will set you free and allow you to experience the joy that God wants for you.
Books really do change our lives. You and I will be amazed by what God will do in your parish when you give everyone a copy of a great Catholic book as they arrive for Christmas Mass.
May God bless you and all those you love,
