Description

The Catholic Church is in the midst of a worldwide effort to engage its members in evangelization, and welcome home those who have left the Church. Yet the meaning of evangelization is unclear to many people: what is it, and how is it part of my life and my faith?

Jesus the Evangelist is a transformative guide to becoming a better disciple through studying the words of Jesus. Using specific and concrete examples from Scripture, the book focuses on the life of Jesus and on the ways he evangelized among his disciples and followers. It defines for Catholics what evangelization is while addressing how individuals can evangelize in their everyday lives, and how parishes can evangelize through the examples Jesus gave us.

Pope Benedict XVI said; “The missionary task is not to bring about revolution in the world but to transfigure it, drawing power from Jesus Christ who ‘convokes us at the table of his Word and Eucharist.'” This book will guide the reader into active discipleship, providing a practical application of both Scripture and Church teaching to the process of evangelization.


Allan F. Wright is the Academic Dean of Evangelization for the Diocese of Paterson, New Jersey. He holds a B.A. in religious studies from Seton Hall University and an M.A. in theology from Immaculate Conception Seminary.
