How NOT To Share Your Faith: The Seven Deadly Sins Of Apologetics And Evangelization
"Catholic apologetics is back. It's everywhere. As a professional apologist, Mark Brumley sees this renaissance as an immensely good thing -- an essential part of the Church's evangelical mission. Even so, grave dangers attend this apologetics renaissance. Some of these dangers are so serious, they threaten to undermine the 'good' that apologetics can accomplish. Brumley calls these dangers the Seven Deadly Sins Of Catholic Apologetics And Evangelization. Like the seven deadly sins of the moral life, they are ""deadly"" not merely as isolated, individual acts but as vices or evil habits -- habitual tendencies to act in a certain way. In How NOT To Share Your Faith: The Seven Deadly Sins Of Catholic Apologetics And Evangelization, Brumley exposes them for you."
