About this item

Converts often bring to the Catholic Church an evangelical zeal that can renew and energize even the most tired and battle weary among us.

The Church is hurting for enthusiastic voices to proclaim her teachings on truth and morals. In these pages, Shaun McAfee, a convert from Evangelical Protestantism shows how we can take the best tools of evangelization and use them to reach countless souls with the fullness of the Christian Faith.

With Shaun's help, you'll learn simple ways you can make the visitor in your parish more at home, how to speak compellingly about the Faith, simple ways to integrate daily Scripture reading into your life, why small groups are important for spiritual enrichment, and how to communicate with souls who have never considered joining the Catholic Church.

The simple steps Shaun outlines in these pages will also show priests and lay leaders how to more effectively engage modern society with our Catholic Faith.

Our society is awash in secularism. It's eating away at the sense of God, and the emptying of the pews in our own parishes is its natural effects. What we need is a renewal of enthusiasm for the battle against secularism and this book is a beginner's guide to getting us back on track.

A Catholic Deacon's perspective on FILLING OUR FATHER'S HOUSE
Shaun does an excellent job of giving us many practical steps toward growing in our own faith and in drawing others in to the Church. The book is very readable and quite interesting. As a convert myself, I really appreciate his love for the Church, for evangelizing and for Church unity. All readers, whether they are converts, cradle Catholics, or people interested in knowing more about the Catholic Church, will find this book quite enjoyable. It will help all readers grow in their relationship to the Lord and His Church.

Practical Inspiration!
As a "cradle catholic" I was challenged by this book to explore my faith and build on it. Full of practical suggestions, I have been inspired to take a more proactive and involved role in my faith and within my local parish.

Catholic Guide to Evangelization
McAfee does a wonderful job showing Catholics how to apply the Protestant principles of evangelization to draw others into the Catholic faith. He shows us how to develop and share our testimony with others and how to love and understand the Bible so that we can plant the seeds to bring others to Christ through both word and example.
