“Strange Gods” heads into 3rd Printing, with Study Guide!

I know, I know, I haven’t done my “comprehensive” list of good reads for Christmas, or my annual Christmas Gift Ideas post — they’re coming, I promise — but first let me share this because I’m having a bad, overwhelmed day where all I can do is fight on Twitter and quote T.S. Eliot, and announcing this makes me feel better!

Coming soon, a third printing of Strange Gods: Unmasking the Idols in Everyday Life, with a Study Guide included (as they say) “by popular demand”!

That’s cool, right?

Also, the Study Guide is now available online for those who have already purchased the book, so you don’t have to wait until that printing comes out…you could, you know…buy it now…for people…for Christmas…

Eeeww. It’s always so uncomfortable for me to be so self-promoting.

So, here’s a really gratifying review of it.

And here is my interview with Lisa Hendey about it. And one with Brandon Vogt.

I know, I’m awful, right?

But still, buy my book!

    You are NOT awful. You and Benedict are the best things that EVER happened to me. Well, God putting you in my way. One never knows what influence one has on someone else. I am one grateful woman today.

    I own and LOVED the Kindle edition. I’ll be purchasing the study guide edition and Sherry Weddell’s book to gift to my parish/priest.

    I just bought the kindle version and it is really life-changing to read this book. I read “Forming Intentional Disciples” (and need to re-read it slowly) and so glad I read it first, because now am beginning to see what has been holding be back.
    I am only through the 2nd chapter of your book, I think, and your description of the police officer asking Jesus to stand in the midst is really resonating with me. Jesus is on His glorious throne but I also need to ask him to stand between me and my idols. I am trying to get comfortable with that, and to resist thinking that He is someone I can just summon, like a genie. Maybe I am for the first time in my life really pondering that he is “walking along side me’ (I do have a devotion to Jesus in the Eucharist, but how do I reconcile all of this?) I hope I am making sense.
    People, get this book! If anyone you know is cracking open the Pope’s new exhortation, this is a great follow-up.
    I am really looking forward to Christmas break, so I can take time to ponder and read. I will definitely order the study guide and try and get some friends together to read–maybe in the summer.
    Thanks for using your incredible talents to bolster all of us in the trenches. Blessed Advent.

    Please stop apologizing. You’ve done good work, accept the acknowledgement and smile. If you continue with the apologies it will begin to look like false humility and from what I know of you, that’s not who you arel. So, stop it girl! Go produce more wonderful stuff and give thanks for your gifts. I so enjoy reading your thoughts.
