To be released on February 4, 2020


Your daily life has the power to end abortion.

I am blessed to announce my new book To the Heart of the Matter: The 40 Day Companion to Live a Culture of Life. This 150-page book is very different from my previous books. It serves as a practical guide to how our small daily activities can build a culture of life in a time when attacks on the unborn--and the family--are at an all-time high.

Many people want to do more to help end abortion. But we are busy. We have work, families, house repairs, and sick in-laws.

This book gets to the heart of the matter of our culture war by highlighting the small and large ways we can--and must--help build a culture of life in the life we live every day.

To the Heart of the Matter is the pro-life devotional for busy people. It can be used during a 40 Days for Life campaign, Lent, or any time of year.


"To the Heart of the Matter may be the first-ever public work that articulates what it is to be pro-life in daily living. It's a response that is fresh and integrated and strikingly bold in its simplicity."

Mother Agnes Mary Donovan, Superior General, Sisters of Life


"To the Heart of the Matter gives us a tangible guide on how we can and are winning this battle with the simplicity of doing everything in our life for God. This insightful tool is so needed in our noisy world. "

Ramona Trevino, Former Planned Parenthood manager, wife, mother, and author of Redeemed by Grace


"Carney's work is an important devotional that leads us to recognize the power of prayer, the importance of life and the call we all have to defend the most innocent among us."

Billy Hallowell, Director of Communications and Content for PureFlix.com


"In 40 short chapters, he provides practical ways for us to create a space for the Lord to live in and through us, thereby making each moment an opportunity to allow the Lord's own love and life to take root in the world."
