Current Kindle Deals Wednesday vol. 4

Welcome to the fourth volume of Current Kindle Deals Wednesday!

As many of you know, I love to read, I love Amazon, and I love the Kindle app (and my Kindle Paperwhite!). I also have reading kids, I'm an avid and prolific reader, myself. Thus, it seemed only natural that I would use those passions to help others. And so, I'm excited to announce that every Wednesday, for the foreseeable future, I will share with you a list of 9 handpicked, carefully procured great books, good books worth reading, and everything in between, here.  I will share Kindle deals, as well as a few good deals in the beautiful hard-bound book variety (meaning, those books that you just can't live without, and you would rather not read on a Kindle).  What they have in common is that they are all readily available to you via Amazon.

The Way by St. Josemaria Escriva 5.99 on Kindle

How is ordinary life a route to holiness? A Catholic classic by the founder of Opus Dei.
from the publisher:
The direct, conversational writing style and its deeply felt humanity are among the book’s main attractions and beautifully convey the belief that the human is not foreign to the divine and that the fully Christian spiritual attitude can be described as unity of life.

A Worthy Reception by Kelly Mantoan only 7.99 on Kindle

A retreat based on St. Thomas' A'Kempis' The Imitation of Christ. Um, what's not to love?!
from Kelly:
If you’re curious to know what has given ‘The Imitation of Christ’ it’s 500 year staying power, but were overwhelmed with where to start, this book is the perfect introduction! Using thirty brief chapters, with instructions and introductions for each day’s theme, you’ll be brought closer to our Lord through deep personal reflection and receive the sacraments of Confession and Communion with renewed reverence and awe.

Little Sins Mean A lot: Kicking Our Bad Habits Before They Kick Us by Elizabeth Scalia only 7.30 on Kindle

I love Elizabeth Scalia, and this book would be no exception to a stretch in the right direction! ;)
From the publisher:
Writer, speaker, and blogger Elizabeth Scalia takes a look at thirteen of these little sins that, if left unexamined and unconfessed, can have a serious impact on our spiritual lives and relationship with Christ. Through her honest (and sometimes funny) examination of these same sins in her own life, as well as Church teaching on each one, she helps us ask ourselves the tough questions, and the tools to kick these bad habits before they kick us.

Catholicism: A Journey to the Heart of Faith by Father Robert Barron only 10.99 on Kindle

We have the DVD series on our shelf and I give it 5/5 stars!!! :-) ;) It is also available in book form, and what's not to love--  it's from Father Robert Barron, the answer to California's prayers!  ;)
from the publisher:
What is Catholicism? A 2,000-year-old living tradition? A worldview? A way of life? A relationship? A mystery? In Catholicism Father Robert Barron examines all these questions and more, seeking to capture the body, heart and mind of the Catholic faith.

The Joy of Love: On Love in the Family by Pope Francis

Worth having on your shelf. From the publisher:

"{This book} is appreciated as an aid to reflection, dialogue and pastoral practice, and as a help and encouragement to families in their daily commitments and challenges."

Praying the Rosary With Pope Francis compiled by the US Conference of Bishops

Here is a special prayer that can promote holiness and unity within God's church! Learn more by busying and reading this book!;)

Let's Pray (Not Just Say) The Rosary by Richard Rooney. S.J for only 1.99 on Kindle

Do it! ;)

happy reading, friends! ;)
