If you’re like me, you might find yourself with a gift card or two for bookstores like Amazon.com or Barnes & Noble after the Christmas and broader-holiday season. In the event that you’re looking for something to purchase with those acquired and restricted monies, let me shamelessly call your attention to some of my recent books that have been released during the past year, including the newest one, Franciscan Spirituality for the 21st Century: Selected Reflections from the Dating God Blog and Other Essays (2013) — if you’re a fan of this blog, I can guarantee that you’ll be a fan of this book!
I readily admit to this plug as shameless for two reasons. The first is that, as any of you who have published a book or released some sort of media (musicians, visual artists, etc.) realize, the more embarrassing and challenging part of that work or ministry is to be a part-time spokesperson for the said product. It’s just the name of the game. The second reason this is shameless advertising is that I don’t personally benefit from the sale of any of these books, rather all royalties and proceeds go directly to my province of the Franciscan Order, so you can rest assured that any gift cards or money spent on these books goes to a great cause.
Here are some links to the ways you can get ahold of these books. You can also order them from any local or independent bookstore if they don’t already have them in stock. Thanks again for checking them out and I hope you enjoy them and spread the word! Let me know what you think — I always appreciate the feedback!
