Today is Ash Wednesday, which begins a period of fasting, prayer and almsgiving leading up to Easter. I know many are struggling in our currently horrible economy, so as a means of giving alms, I would like to offer my listeners and readers one free eBook. Simply email me at judson@judsoncarroll.com and tell me which one you would like. I will send it to you as a .pdf. The entire list of 13 books can be viewed here: https://southernappalachianherbs.blogspot.com/

Please feel free to share this offer with friends and family. I would like to give away a lot of books! The offer will end on Monday, April 1.

May God bless each of you,

Judson Carroll

What a kind and wonderful gesture. I recently had the "lightning bolt moment" where I realized that almsgiving, such an archaic word so fraught with condescension, just means giving others what we owe them. I call it the gift of ought. The deeper we look into this, the deeper the meaning becomes. We realized we missed an opportunity to smile at someone who looked like they were struggling. We didn't call mom this week. If you think like I do, that the corporal and spiritual works of mercy are great opportunities for "almsgiving" then I would thank you for taking this opportunity to instruct the ignorant. It doesn't have to have religious overtones. A person writes a book because they care deeply about the subject matter. By sharing it for free during Lent, denying yourself the legitimate good of receiving pay for honest work, your heart for others shows through.

Thank you for your kindness and generosity, Judson.

I read the thread title and thought you were giving UP books for Lent. Giving away, not giving up reading them...*phew*

This is so kind of you!

Once I switched to desktop view, I could see close to a dozen books you have recently written, all of them look really interesting,  so I am really appreciative that you have given us time to pick one!

God bless you  🙏
