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.

Catholic Guide to Evangelization
Shaun McAfee does a wonderful job in showing Catholics how to apply the Protestant principles of evangelization to draw others into the Catholic faith. He shares resources and ways to develop your own personal testimony in order to share your Catholic faith with others. New converts and cradle Catholics, alike, can use and apply the methods outlined in each chapter, which are not typically taught in Catechism classes or Catholic Bible studies. We each have our own story of why we believe, and McAfee shows us how to develop and share that testimony with others, so that by our story and example we can plant the seeds to bring others to Christ. He also helps us in continuing to develop our faith so that we can continue to grow and bring others to the Church. I highly recommend Filling Our Father‰Ûªs House to anyone also looking to share the Catholic faith and develop their own personal relationship with God the Father and Jesus Christ.
