    Got a free copy of this book, and I think it may be useful. Well, now that I've started the book, I can tell that it's something I can't read straight through once. It bears reading and reading again. I like the sentiment "Evangelize always. Use words when necessary." But that's hard! Both parts! Patrick Madrid says that the fact my close relatives are not Catholic is apparently a God's plan - to use me as a way to bring them home... He also says that nothing is impossible for God.

Patrick Madrid says that the fact my close relatives are not Catholic is apparently a God's plan - to use me as a way to bring them home... He also says that nothing is impossible for God. Which is true of course, but when he describes the features that an evangelist should have: humility, love for God and love for "the neighbor", prayerful life -- I realize how far I am from that ideal. Really. Especially, since I've just recently prayed about humility and resolved to practice it with God's help, and then on vacation it all went haywire. I didn't pray as much; I was thinking more about myself than about others; I was grumpy with little provocation... He had some useful tips, though; that's why I think I'll need to read and reread. --- I've gotten an opportunity to witness in my life, and decided to go one with the reading of this book looking for the tips. Once I decided I'm going to do it, the reading went smoother. I think the author should have moved the section on the excuses we make earlier! It does make some sense having it after the preparation, but still... The book is choke-full of tips. I particularly like the advice on pages 192-194 about being patient. At the end it also provides a list of suggested books to read afterward, with descriptions of what they are about and subdivided into Preliminary, Intermediate and Advanced. I think Preliminary is the longest category, and Advanced the shortest.

    Being a convert myself I can relate to everything he's saying in this book. I think that this book should be read by anyone who is wanting to evangelize - I see so many well meaning Catholic people pushing Protestants, or former Catholics, away on a daily basis. It's so easy to push people away, either by being over zealous or by getting caught up in a pointless argument and letting tempers flare. This book is not a magic answer for converting anyone, but it will teach you some very practical ti Being a convert myself I can relate to everything he's saying in this book.

It's absolutely recommended.

    This book is useful and quite instructive. Its reading plan will take years to complete but is loaded with books I have already considered; it will focus my reading for years to come.

    Excellent advice for bringing others to The Church, whether it be Catholic or Protestant. Jesus said He had sheep in other flocks. We are to love and care about bringing people to Christ; not filling churches. Even Madrid ended with egg on his face when he took his Protestant friend to the Catholic Church. I believe God was saying bring the lost sheep to me, those who do not follow Christ.

    A good book but just a little more basic than I was looking for.
