To some, "the New Evangelization" seems to mean warmed-over and outdated apologetics that rarely resonate with people today. But that approach fails to do justice to what evangelization is really all about. In Saint Paul and the New Evangelization, one of today's most respected Scripture scholars offers a far richer, more deeply biblical approach.

Ronald D. Witherup, PSS, analyzes the techniques of one of the church's best evangelists-Paul of Tarsus-to show how we can help reinvigorate the faith of friends and loved ones. You don't need to know a lot about the Bible or theology. Just follow St. Paul's inspiring example, and discover how to talk about your faith in ways that change hearts and minds.

Ronald D. Witherup, PSS, is superior general of the Sulpicians and lives in Paris, France. He holds a doctorate in biblical studies and is the author of articles on Scripture and of numerous books including Gold Tested in Fire: A New Pentecost for the Catholic Priesthood, and is New Testament editor of the Little Rock Catholic Study Bible (Liturgical Press).

Ronald Witherup provides us with a way to understand the New Evangelization in light of the greatest evangelizer, St. Paul. After explaining what is meant by the New Evangelization, Father Witherup relates it to St. Paul's own understanding of evangelization in order to show readers how they can carry out the New Evangelization today. This is the perfect book for parishes seeking to implement the New Evangelization.
Rev. Frank J. Matera, Pastor St. Mary's Church, Connecticut, Professor Emeritus from Catholic University, Author of The Sermon on the Mount

Anyone who cares about the church's life and future will benefit from this spirited invitation to evangelization.
Interpretation

Saint Paul and the New Evangelization is an insightful and engaging overview of synods, in particular the Synod on the New Evangelization, and its continuation of the evangelizing ministry of Saint Paul. Father Ronald Witherup offers a masterful foundation for those who seek to understand the challenge of the New Evangelization and its integral relationship to Saint Paul - the great evangelist and Apostle to the Gentiles.
Cardinal Donald Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington

The usefulness of this book lies in its practical and accessible dimension, which allows beginners and newcomers to (re)discover Paul's letters with joy.
Theological Studies

This book has inestimable value as a resource for parish communities concerned with the Church of the present and of the future.
Barbara Flynn, The Catholic Leader

When it comes to the new evangelization, scripture scholar Ronald D. Witherup, S.S. goes back to the old roots. In his book, Saint Paul and the New Evangelization (Liturgical Press, 2013), Witherup seeks evangelization tips from one of the church's top evangelizers-St. Paul of Tarsus. St. Paul's techniques will help you reinvigorate the joys of faith in your family and friends. His messages will change hearts and minds.
U.S. Catholic

In this readable yet elegant gem of a book, Fr. Ron Witherup-both priest and scholar-introduces us to the excitement of encountering Jesus Christ and sharing him with others. He does this by showing how the apostle Paul can powerfully guide us to know Christ better and invite others to do the same. This is an enlightening and inspiring book for all Catholics and, in fact, for all Christians.
Michael J. Gorman, Ph.D., Raymond E. Brown Professor of Biblical Studies and Theology, St. Mary's Seminary & University, Baltimore

Fr. Witherup explains the "New Evangelization" in a clear, inviting, realistic, and challenging manner. Moreover, he does so by incorporating the writings of one of the great evangelizers of all time, the Apostle Paul. What I appreciate most about this book is that Fr. Witherup invites us to gather the fruits of the "Year of St. Paul" and bring them to bear on one of the central aspects of the "Year of Faith," the call to deepen our own commitment to Christ and to give authentic witness to the gospel.
Thomas D. Stegman, SJ, Associate Professor of New Testament, Professor Ordinarius in the Ecclesiastical Faculty, Boston College School of Theology and Ministry
