We have an obligation as Christians to share the Gospel of Christ But many are at a loss as to how to fulfill this commission. Good news: We have a clear path we can follow, trod by holy men and women who have successfully brought millions of souls to Christ - the saints! In Casting Nets with the Saints, author and speaker Chris Stewart uses entertaining stories of the saints not only to demonstrate how they employed The Seven Pillars of Effective Evangelization, but he builds further on the pillars to show how the saints illustrate The Seven Characteristics of an Effective Evangelist, modeled on the life and ministry of Jesus himself. A truly effective evangelist must be: Joyful, Humble, Merciful, Peaceful, Faithful, Hopeful, Charitable, As Casting Nets with the Saints powerfully demonstrates, the saints embody these characteristics, and their stories can inspire us to share the Faith. This book is perfect for individuals or parishes searching for an effective program for bringing the Faith to others and growing in it themselves.
