Our 15th Anniversary Giveaway: Under the Influence of Jesus

Under the Influence of Jesus giveaway in honor of Catechist's Journey anniversary

We continue our year-long celebration of the 15th anniversary of the launch of Catechist’s Journey and publication of The Catechist’s Toolbox. Our celebration continues today with the chance to win a copy of Under the Influence of Jesus: The Transforming Experience of Encountering Christ.

It was during the feast of Pentecost when a dejected, cowering, frightened group of Jesus’ closest followers were suddenly transformed by the Holy Spirit into bold proclaimers of a life-changing message. But what exactly was the message they were proclaiming? Moreover, is it really possible that a very specific proclamation from nearly 2,000 years ago can transform people today? Under the Influence of Jesus is my emphatic answer to that question: Yes, it can! Throughout the book, I explore not only the various elements of the message itself—such as the kingdom of God, the Cross, the Resurrection, sin, and conversion—but also the characteristics of a changed heart and life that result from accepting the message that Jesus is Lord and that we are now a “new creation” in a new kind of kingdom. This book is ultimately an invitation to encounter Christ in a whole new way and to use our own transformed hearts and lives to help bring others into a life-changing relationship with Jesus.

Read the official giveaway rules below. Enter by 12:00 a.m. central time on October 20, 2022. Winner will be contacted for address. Open to U.S. mailing addresses only.
