Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Catholics, even devout ones, are notoriously reluctant evangelizers. Many of them know they ought to share their faith, but their list of excuses is a mile long: I don't know enough to do it right; I'll say something wrong; I might offend someone; I don't want to come across as a religious nut; I can't quote Scripture as well as my protestant neighbor can....

Deep down, we are not really comfortable with those excuses. It's time to banish timidity, and this book can help. Author Henry Libersat shows readers where to get started—with themselves—making sure their own relationship with Christ is where it ought to be. Next, he explains how sharing the faith doesn't have to mean winning debates. It's often as simple as giving good example, and sharing your own story of what Christ means to you. This book will inspire you to give it a try!"—Catholic Digest, October, 2012

"Catholic and Confident is a small (95 pages) book full of practical suggestions, stories and motivation designed to help us Catholics get the Good News out to others. It has inspired me and challenged me and I know it will do the same for you.

"Catholic and Confident is broken up into three parts: The first part deals with why we Catholics need to share our faith and as the title aptly indicates, it lays 'the foundation for sharing faith.' The second part gets practical and as its name implies, Mr. Libersat tells us 'how it is done.' In the third and final part, we are encouraged and shown how to 'let the spirit act.'

"One of the things I love about this book is that it deals directly with sharing to family members, especially with the teens and young adults in our lives. It also talks about sharing within one’s own local church community. We are encouraged to use our talents and gifts within our own life experiences. This isn’t something new, it’s a reminder of what many of us already know, but what Mr. Libersat does differently, is that he actually shows us how to do this, which appeals to my practical nature.

"Another thing I love about this book is the end of chapter reflections. Mr. Libersat asks pointed, thought-provoking questions that help to deepen our understanding of what is read in each chapter and gets us started in actually putting it into action.

I highly recommend this book for all Catholics, especially those feeling the call to share their faith and I give this book four (4) stars."—Simple Catholic Living
