GIVEAWAY: Catholics Come Home by Tom Peterson

Submit the form below for a chance to win a copy of Catholics Come Home by Tom Peterson in this week’s summer giveaway. This contest will close Thursday, August 22nd.

With a Foreword by Scott Hahn, bestselling author of The Lamb’s Supper

God has something extraordinary planned for your life . . .

In our fast-paced, highly technological world, this statement might sound a bit lofty, but the lives of millions of souls who have come before us attest to this simple truth:

God has a wonderful plan in store for you.

With these words, Tom Peterson, founder and president of Catholics Come Home, a nonprofit multimedia organization dedicated to promoting Catholic evangelization, offers inspiration for believers from all walks of life, whether lapsed or practicing, to deepen their faith and draw them closer to Jesus and His Church.

In a series of moving stories and personal anecdotes, Tom relates how after rediscovering his faith, he experienced God’s unfailing love, and soon found his true purpose in life.  You can too! Drawing from scripture, his own struggles and discoveries, and the lives of the saints as well as ordinary individuals, the author offers seven ways to enter into a more deeply personal relationship with Jesus.  These are pearls that you can share with others to illuminate the importance of the Catholic faith and open wide the door to a homecoming celebration.
