Mark Wheeler’s Favorite Resources: Now with a Bundling Discount!

Several months ago, Verbum Sales Representative Mark Wheeler had an idea to combine some of his favorite resources. He says, “I noticed a lot of high quality resources that would go well together. Also, I wanted to see people get the best deal possible.”

The result was The Liturgical Press Academic bundle, which includes the following series:

If  you’ve already purchased any of these resources on their own, you’ll get a dynamic pricing on the complete bundle. That means you won’t be charged for what you already own, and you still get a great bundling discount on everything new. It’s a fantastic deal!

Available for several months, this bundle has been very popular, especially with customers who already own parts of it.

The Liturgical Press Academic bundle “fills a much-needed gap for Catholic biblical scholarship,” Mark notes, adding, “Rarely has such excellent Catholic scholarship been accessible at such a reasonable price.”

Thank you for taking the initiative, Mark!

Special Savings on Fathers of the Church

Verbum Sales Associate Preston Morrison talks about his favorite Verbum resource, the Fathers of the Church Series from Catholic University of America in 127 volumes—now with extra savings through the end of the month!

Preston says:

I love Fathers of the Church because I can actually see what the Church Fathers taught and thought. From a scholarly perspective, I can read the Christian writers who came immediately after Christ. I grew up in a different faith tradition, and I didn’t even know the Church Fathers existed until recently!

The sheer size of the series is most impressive: 46,317 pages of text in 127 volumes. Also, the translations from the original languages are fairly recent, with introductions and notes for each author.

Fathers of the Church Series is at the top of my list because I haven’t found any other resource that compares to the quality of translations, number of authors, and comprehensive coverage of Christian writings for the first 500 years of Christianity.

I find that this series is popular with customers across denominations, and they love it! Once you realize how much content you’re getting, it’s practically a must-own resource.

For a limited time, you can save over $500 on the Fathers of the Church Series as part of the Verbum Monthly Sale. Don’t miss out—the sale ends July 1!

Fathers of the Church

Q and A with Author Shaun McAfee

Verbum is proud to feature Shaun McAfee, author of Filling our Father’s House: What Converts Can Teach Us about Evangelization, available on pre-publication now.

We recently interviewed Shaun, who is serving with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Afghanistan. Thank you, Shaun, for your service to our country and for your support of Verbum!

1. How did you become a fan of Verbum?

My earliest experience with Verbum was hearing and reading Steve Ray and Scott Hahn praise the product, shortly after I had converted to the Catholic faith. Their positive experience and endorsement of Verbum seemed very genuine. I briefly checked it out and was interested, but I must have put it off for some reason. Months later, I found success in blogging and started a Master’s degree in Dogmatic Theology with Holy Apostles College and Seminary. During my graduate work, I learned that all my writing heroes were not just huge supporters of Verbum, but heavy users. At a Catholic Apologetics Academy with Patrick Madrid in early 2014, I was further amazed by the strength of this product when I met with one of Verbum’s sales representatives. At that point, I had to have it.

I got the product and loved it immediately—no buyer’s remorse whatsoever. I wondered how I worked without it for so long. As a growing academic, writer, and Lay Dominican, Verbum became the best investment I had ever made. It still is, really. My passion to get this in the hands of others swelled, and I approached Holy Apostles Seminary about striking a deal with Verbum to get this product to more students. Verbum was generous, and granted a 30-50% off the software (depending on student status). Even while I serve here in Afghanistan, I have Verbum on all of my media devices, and I constantly refer to them in writing and personal study. I wouldn’t just say I became a fan—I became an ambassador!

2. What’s the thing you like best about Verbum 6?

That’s a tough one. Verbum 6 was not a mere systems upgrade, like Windows, to correct problems—it was an all-out change to the fundamental use and capability of Verbum. That’s one thing I appreciate about the folks at Verbum: they understand that people these days are tired of unnecessary upgrades. We like value-added improvements, features, and innovations, and that’s what Verbum did with 6. Personally, I enjoy the dashboard in 6 a lot more: better reading, relevant topics, great graphics, and share-worthy content every day!

3. How does Verbum help your faith grow?

My conversion to the Catholic Church, and my life since, has been ingrained with study. I studied my way into the Catholic Church, learning the truths and the reasons, and how to tell others about that. Those facts became faith. The intellectual became highly personal, and any aid to that study aided in my personal growth.

 4. What do you think is the best way to spread the word about Verbum Catholic Products?

What is Verbum not doing to spread the word?! They just dropped a huge sum of money to support Lumen, their high school curriculum, they sponsor giveaways, and they seem to be at every major event. I suppose the MBA in me is thinking that the real nuggets of growth come from word-of-mouth referrals. I call this Chatter Marketing. When the product is good, and that company does everything it can to support and entertain its users, they’re going to talk. I’ve talked, no kidding, 10 close friends into buying Verbum, and worked for 5 months to attain the deal for my beloved college, Holy Apostles College and Seminary. When people really believe in something, they want others to know about it. Users of Verbum should share this great product with their peers.
