Description
These are times of immense challenge and immense opportunity for the Catholic Church. Consider these trends for the United States: Only 30 percent of Americans who were raised Catholic are still practicing. Fully 10 percent of all adults in America are ex-Catholics. The number of marriages celebrated in the Church decreased dramatically, by nearly 60 percent, between 1972 and 2010. Only 60 percent of Catholics believe in a personal God. If the Church is to reverse these trends, the evangelizers must first be evangelized - in other words, Catholics in the pew must make a conscious choice to know and follow Jesus before they can draw others to him. This work of discipleship lies at the heart of Forming Intentional Disciples, a book designed to help Church leaders, parish staff, and all Catholics transform parish life from within. Drawing upon her fifteen years of experience with the Catherine of Siena Institute, Sherry Weddell leads readers through: Five thresholds of postmodern conversion. How to open a conversation about faith and belief. How to ask though-provoking questions and establish an atmosphere of trust. When to tell the Great Story of Jesus. How to help someone respond to God's call to intentional discipleship. And be prepared for conversion, because when life at the parish level changes, the life of the whole Church will change.
