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.
"The suggestions laid out in this book are the sort that will empower faithful Catholics with a more vibrant outlook on evangelism, aid them in sharing their Faith with others, and create more hospitable parish community that is, as Pope Francis has recently stated, more 'attractive.'"
"The advice in Filling Our Fathers House is clear and practical. Any Catholic who wants to live a more fruitful spiritual life will follow Shaun McAfee's direction."
"Shaun McAfee has done us a great service in compiling the things we can learn from converts, all with a hope that we will be better Catholics."
"Read this book and be grateful to the Holy Spirit for the Great Regathering he is doing in our time! "
