Overview

You Can Share the Faith: Reaching Out One Person at a Time by Karen Edmisten

Many Catholics are baffled about how to share the faith, but the good news is—it's not complicated. Jesus didn't have a twitter account, followers on Facebook, or a livestream app, though he would have made good use of those. He started with one person, then another, then a handful—and his mission grew.

Karen Edmisten's own journey from atheism to Catholicism followed a similar low-key, one-on-one model and frames her lively advice. As she moves from an initial impression—“Catholics are weird”—to her conversion, friends along the way listen, support, answer her questions and give her the space she needs.

In You Can Share the Faith: Reaching Out One Person at a Time Edmisten draws out practical pointers from her own story and the stories of others to help you share your faith confidently and with compassion.
