Buy this book now, read this review after. Trust me. Have you ever bought something you know you already wanted and read the reviews just to excite you? This is that sort of thing. This will be one of the best books you read for a while, and definitely of the most important in our Church today.
Chances are you came across this book or this review because you have some interest in the modern Catholic evangelization situation and want to know if this book will help you or help your group understand modern evangelization efforts better. You’re in the right place and I’m very excited to tell you more about this amazing and timely book.
Extremely well written and organized, the book tells the story of St. Paul Street Evangelization, how the founding members got the grassroots apostolate started, what they’ve learned on the way, and what they suggest for others.
I think most of us young Catholics are deeply interested in evangelization efforts, but there are so many opinions out there on how this is accomplished. We have Church documents, Scott Hahn’s book, Shaun McAfee’s book, and a swell of others, but this one I felt was very different. Why? Because it comes from a group that’s already proved its fruits. St. Paul Street Evangelization is a very effective apostolate and a lot of us are wondering what exactly they do. This book covers that and more.
One by one, each of the founding members discussed their story, their role in the process, and their testimony will teach each of us ad give us confidence to take action in a like manner. This is without a doubt one of the most important books of our time and hope everyone gives this book a chance. St. Paul Street Evangelization has proved its effectiveness and it’s time for each of us to step up with the same courage and goodwill. Buy this book today!
