Talking about the "things that matter most" on December 13
4:00 – Good News, Bad News: Evangelization, Conversion and the
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.
5:00 – Innocence: A Novel
He lives in solitude beneath the
city, an exile from society, which will destroy him if he is ever seen. She
dwells in seclusion, a fugitive from enemies who will do her harm if she is
ever found. But the bond between them runs deeper than the tragedies that have
scarred their lives. Something more than chance—and nothing less than
destiny—has brought them together in a world whose hour of reckoning is fast
approaching. It’s the latest novel from the Catholic bestselling author Dean Koontz who blends mystery,
suspense, and acute insight into the human soul in a masterfully told tale that
will resonate with readers forever. He joins us.
