Crisis of Faith
Six years ago our friends Fr. John McCloskey and Russell
Shaw wrote Good News, Bad News: Evangelization, Conversion and the Crisis of Faith.
Based on the great success and influence that Father McCloskey has had in
helping instruct many converts to Catholicism, especially numerous high profile
DC figures, this book is a powerful combination of the methods, theology, and
theories that McCloskey uses in his evangelization efforts. In addition to his
compelling insights on how to teach or share the faith in a winning, inspiring
way, this work includes the contributions of several dozen converts of Fr.
McCloskey who give their own moving testimonies of why they converted to
Catholicism, and how that life-changing journey happened for each of them. We
revisit this inspirational book today with Fr. McCloskey.
