EVANGELIZING CATHOLICS:  A Mission Manual for Evangelization

Author: Scott Hahn

In this this very practical "mission manual" Dr. Hahn equips you with:

 A guide to understanding what the New Evangelisation is, and who it's really for; A roadmap that leads you to where it all happens (hint: it's closer than you think); A simple, beautiful message to share - in words and actions.

You don't need esoteric knowledge. You don't need to master a new set of skills. Evangelization, for Catholics, is simply friendship raised up to the highest level. Enter a deeper friendship with Christ, and you'll want to share his companionship more and more with a wider circle of friends.

AFTER EMMAUS:  Biblical Models for the New Evangelization

Author: Marcel Dumais OMI

By exploring the witness and different missionary approaches of Jesus and the apostles Marcel Dumais offers foundational models to apply to the context and circumstances of our own times. After Emmaus considers the Bible from the point of view of models of evangelization and faith.

These biblical approaches include the direct proclamation proposed in the Acts of the Apostles, the enculturated discourses of St. Paul, the humanism of Jesus’ beatitudes, and the accompaniment of the risen Christ by the disciples of Emmaus.

AT THE LIMITS OF THE SECULAR:  Reflections on Faith and Public Life

Author: William A Barbieri

Presents an integrated collection of constructive essays by Catholic scholars addressing the new challenges and opportunities facing religious believers under shifting conditions of secularity and "post-secularity." Using an innovative "keywords" approach, this book is an interdisciplinary effort to think through the implications of secular consciousness for the role of religion in public affairs.

The book responds in some ways to Charles Taylor's magnum opus, A Secular Age, although it also stands on its own. It features an original essay by David Tracy - the most prominent American Catholic theologian writing today - and ground breaking contributions by influential younger theologians such as Peter Casarella, William Cavanaugh, and Vincent Miller.

Explore the impact of each of these women on the Church, then and now.
Their writings will inspire you. Their witness will empower you.
