Drawing on the trusted and popular Catholic Update newsletter, the Catholic Update Guide to the New Evangelization traces the history of evangelization throughout Christianity, starting with the life and ministry of Jesus. You will learn about the work done by the Second Vatican Council and how this practice can and should play an active role in the life of every disciple of Christ. Questions for reflection after each chapter.
The Church's mission is the proclamation of the Good News. The Church has renewed her mission to evangelize. This renewed vision of evangelization includes, as Pope Benedict XVI has stated, the challenge to "propose anew" the Good News to all of the Christian faithful, most especially to those who are absent from the Lord's Table. The Catholic Update Guide to the New Evangelization looks at the Church's call to evangelization, what the New Evangelization is and why the Church is focusing on it now, and how Catholics can engage with it and be a part of it.
