The Prosperity Gospel: How Greed and Bad Philosophy Distorted Christ's Teaching

Which Gospel are you following?

In the United States, the Prosperity Gospel’s tenets, spread widely by many Protestant preachers, have crept into the Catholic Church. Where did the “Prosperity” Gospel come from? And how has it embedded itself so deeply in this country?

In this book, Thomas Storck demonstrates the deep roots that the unrestrained desire for gain has in this country. He argues that the exclusion of serious religious discourse from American public life has led to the public square being emptied of all transcendence, reducing every aspect of social life to material gain: politics, the economy, education, science, the arts, and even religion itself.

 How many of we Americans’ ordinary activities are undertaken solely for worldly comfort—with no reference to anything beyond this life, or even to our society’s common good? How deeply have we ourselves been affected by the allures of riches and wealth?
  Here is a book that will expose one of the heresies that most vilely distorts the teachings of Christ: the Prosperity Gospel. Our treasure can only be found in heaven, not on earth. We must know the culture we live in that affects our daily living so that we can strive to be children of light and protect ourselves against the temptations of our times so that His will can be done on earth, as it is heaven.


My Daily Bread

Hear Christ speak to you like never before. My Daily Bread is a series of short, daily reflections on the spiritual life. Written with loving care by Father Anthony Paone, this devotional will strengthen your love for Christ and his teachings. Written as a dialogue with Christ himself, Father Paone leads the reader through the three ways of the spiritual life:  Purification, Imitation, and Union.

Arranged for daily reflection, this pocket-sized book is an indispensible guide to the spiritual life. 

My Daily Bread overflows with reflections and prayers specifically designed to help you grow in the spiritual life and overcome failings, including:

• How to cultivate, recognize, and follow your conscience
• A contemplation of the Four Last Things that will help keep your focus on the eternal
• The power of prayer as the first remedy to temptation
• A detailed guide on how to conquer a host of bad habits
• How to overcome our fear of suffering and embrace it as Christ embraced it
• How to live for Christ daily through spiritual reading, prayer, overcoming distractions, and cultivating devotions
• Achieving union with Christ through the Eucharist

Each daily reflection begins with Jesus speaking directly to you, kindly, patiently, and with great love. The next part of the reflection asks you to consider the truths presented in the words of Jesus. The final part consists of a prayer asking God for the help to receive His wisdom and use it fruitfully in your life.

With more than one million copies sold, My Daily Bread is a true Christian classic. Its simple, carefully-crafted daily reflections have led thousands to a drastically improved interior life and a deeper love for Christ. 

A solid, powerful Catholic alternative to books like Jesus Calling.
