3 Biggest Discounts during Easter

Verbum Easter Sale

We’ve hand-picked 12 of our most popular resources to discount during the Easter Sale. Check out the 3 best deals below, and visit Verbum.com/Easter to see everything that’s on sale.


1. 52% off
The Works of St. Thomas Aquinas (18 vols.)

St. Thomas Aquinas is perhaps the most influential theologian of the last 800 years. His prolific writings and personal sanctity earned him the title of “the Angelic Doctor,” and his works are consistently cited by prominent philosophers and theologians (Pope Francis cited St. Thomas 19 times in his recent Apostolic Exhortation, Amoris Laetitita). The Works of St. Thomas Aquinas (18 vols.) comprises all of Aquinas’ most famous works, including the Summa Theologica, the Summa contra Gentiles, the Catena Aurea, and a variety of insightful commentaries and homilies. This collection was a bargain at its regular price of $629.99, but it’s currently on sale for just $299.99—that’s 52% off!

 


2. 29% off
The Way of the Lord Jesus (3 vols.)

First published in 1983, Germain Grisez’s masterful series on moral theology is widely referenced by seminarians, scholars, and studious Catholics. Much like the Summa Theologica, The Way of the Lord Jesus takes an analytic approach to moral theology, offering detailed, relevant answers to common questions and concerns. In print form, this series would take up significant shelf space and cost upwards of $100. During the Verbum Easter Sale, you can get a superior electronic edition for just $59.99!

 


3. 28% off the
Catholic Mariology Collection (13 vols.)

Drawing from authors such as Pope St. John Paul II, St. Louis de Montfort, Scott Hahn, and others, this collection offers a solid foundation for studying Mary’s role in the Church. Whether you’re looking to deepen your devotion to the Blessed Virgin or simply understand the doctrines surrounding her, the Catholic Mariology Collection (13 vols.) is a valuable resource—all the more so with a $40 Easter discount!

What Does Your Family Bible Look Like?

This guest post was written by Kathryn Heltsley.

For many, the term “family Bible” conjures up images of a large, elaborate book with embossing on the cover and gilt-edged pages. But what if everyone in your family had a Bible in their pocket, purse, or backpack—and used it regularly?

The theme of National Bible Week 2015 is “The Bible: A Book for the Family.” Let’s take a look at how Verbum can help facilitate the use of the Bible in your family.

Verbum puts the Bible in your hands through devices that you use every day. Open up the homepage or mobile app, and there are the day’s Mass Readings. You can also customize your own reading plan—perhaps studying the Gospel of Luke during Advent—and share it with your family or your local parish with Faithlife Groups.

Verbum’s software features bring the Bible to life with historical context, maps, images, root words, and more. Your family can read a passage in the Bible, and then explore pictures of where the narrative took place, and learn about the cultural context. You can discuss the significance of professions like fisherman or tax collector in Biblical times, look up the original Greek and Hebrew meanings of words, compare Bible translations side-by-side, or dig deeper into a text with a biblical commentary.

Church teaching is also relevant and accessible with Verbum. Discuss contemporary issues from a Catholic perspective. As your kids study Catholic teaching, find answers to their questions straight from the Catechism or Youcat with just a few clicks. Let the Doctors of the Church join in your discussions with access to their writings. Verbum has even created a high school theology curriculum based on the USCCB Doctrinal Framework. Whatever your level, Verbum provides a myriad of ways for you and your family to engage with and enjoy Scripture.

Although National Bible Week 2015 is drawing to a close, it’s not too late to save on some key Bible study resources—pick them up before November 22!

Celebrate National Bible Week with Verbum!

National Bible Week

This week the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is celebrating National Bible Week 2015. In keeping with the Synod of Bishops on the Family and Pope Francis’ historic visit to Philadelphia for the World Meeting of Families, this year’s theme is “The Bible: A Book for the Family”.

In order to help you, your family, and your parish celebrate National Bible Week, we’ve discounted a bunch of relevant resources:

The USCCB has also put together several free resources for parishes and families, encouraging greater engagement with the Word of God. Take a look at their page for tips on making the Word part of your home life, to learn about the sacred practice of Lectio divina, or access an outline for a Scripture Vigil on the themes of Catholic social teaching.

National Bible Week ends on November 21—don’t miss this valuable opportunity to study Scripture with the greater Catholic community!

Are You Ready for the World Meeting of Families?

In conjunction with the Congress and Papal visit to the United States next week, we’re offering resources concerning every aspect of family life. The World Meeting of Families Bundle will expand your knowledge of doctrine, Scripture, and traditions related to the family. This 33-volume set includes a wide range of resources, from contemporary scholarship on parenting and the family to Papal encyclicals such as “Humanae Vitae.”

We Have a Winner!

We are happy to announce that Deacon John Sommer won Verbum’s Scholar library giveaway!

We asked Deacon John a few questions about his plans for his new software:

Q. What do you do for the Church?

I am currently assigned as Deacon to the St. Clement of Rome Parish in Bixby, Oklahoma. I am responsible for the Middle and High School Programs at my assigned parish. I have been performing this ministry for 15 years.

I am also a Business Manager for the Parish of Christ the King in Tulsa, Oklahoma. From time to time, the Pastor will ask me to assist with Deaconate duties at Christ the King.

Q. How do you plan to use your new Verbum Scholar library?

My plan for the library is to increase my knowledge about our Lord. One of my main goals currently is to share the Faith with the youth of the Diocese of Tulsa, and I will use Verbum resources to bring our Lord alive in their everyday activities.

We are focused on the development of disciples and this library will be a great reference to provide historical examples of the great Saints and Fathers of the Church.

It will be a great source of information in assisting me with my preaching responsibilities and homily preparation.

Congratulations, Deacon John!

Learn more about the Bible!

The Bible is the inspired word of God, and this month, Verbum features one of the most up-to-date and scholarly study Bibles available: The Catholic Study Bible, 2nd edition. Along with essays and notes by world-renowned scholars on the writing, history, and interpretation of Scripture, Verbum’s amazing functionality links you in with commentaries and resources of your choice on each page. You can save even more when you make your purchase part of a new library!

Fr. Daniel Harrington notes that the Catholic mass has included more Scripture since Vatican II:

Since Vatican II the Bible has become prominent not only in Catholic liturgy and education but also in popular piety. The revised prayers for the sacraments and other liturgical actions use biblical language almost entirely. Charismatic groups and base communities have found biblical reflection and prayer to be the source of great spiritual energy. Even traditional Catholic observances like the Rosary are (and always have been) thoroughly biblical. The language of Catholic prayer in almost every instance derives from the Bible.

…Catholic theology since the Council gives far more attention to biblical sources and is likely to express itself more in biblical than in philosophical language. Official church documents on theological matters or current problems almost always begin from Scripture and try to ground their arguments in biblical texts. The Catholic Church today is far more biblical than it was in the mid-1950s (18-9, emphasis added).

Take advantage of the special features of Verbum that enhance your study with the Catholic Study Bible, on sale through the end of the month as part of our Easter Sale.
