by Terry Barber
Recent popes have challenged all Catholics to participate in the New Evangelization. But most Catholics feel ill-equipped to take up the challenge. Terry Barber, founder of St. Joseph Communications, has written a practical guide that takes much of the pain and uncertainty out of sharing one's faith. Based on Barber's decades of personal experience as an effective evangelist and masterful communicator, and drawing on the perceptions, examples, and lessons of other great evangelists and apologists, How to Share Your Faith with Anyone informs, entertains, and inspires would-be, as well as, seasoned evangelists and teachers.
Barber uses clear examples and insightful stories to explain such topics as:
- What evangelization is
- Why Catholics often don't evangelize
- Preparing to be an evangelist
- The eight laws of effectively sharing the faith with anyone
- Jesus the perfect Evangelizer
- The heart of evangelization
- How to share your personal testimony
Barber explains how to bring people to Christ and to his Church without compromise or conflict. This is a superb, easy-to-follow playbook for the New Evangelization.
Terry Barber is the founder of Saint Joseph Communications, Inc., Lighthouse Catholic Media and is a co-host for Reasons for Faith Live with Jesse Romero on EWTN Radio Network . Terry has recorded numerous podcasts on Saint Joseph Podcasts called "Culture Warriors for Christ", addressing the main social issues affecting our culture today. He has over 30 years experience in evangelization.
Praise for How to Share Your Faith with Anyone:
"Terry Barber has long been one of the Church's finest evangelists. His
excellent book shows us how the new evangelization requires new
apologetics - a new way to explain why the Church's teachings are true
and why Jesus is the answer to the deep desires of the human heart."
- Most Reverend Jose Gomez, Archbishop of Los Angeles
