OSV Books: Casting Nets with the Saints: Learn from the Best How to Share the Faith

Casting Nets with the SaintsIn his newest book, Casting Nets with the Saints, author and speaker Chris Stewart builds on The Seven Pillars of Effective Evangelization, using entertaining stories of the saints to demonstrate the seven characteristics of an effective evangelizer. 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.
