Catholic apologetics is bigger than ever. 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. But often times untrained apologists can undermine arguments for the faith and drive people farther away from the truth. In How NOT to Share Your Faith: The Seven Deadly Sins of Catholic Apologetics and Evangelization, Brumley describes seven of the most common and tragic mistakes he and other apologists have made over the years in their attempts to defend and explain the Catholic faith. More importantly, he reveals how you can avoid these mistakes and become far more effective at sharing your faith in a charitable way-even if that means losing an argument from time to time.
"Mark Brumley is articulate, persuasive, balanced and sensible, and the spirit he brings to this marvelously readable, useful work demonstrates Catholic apologetics at its best."
- Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap., Archbishop of Philadelphia
"This book should be required reading for all amateur and professional Catholic apologists. It is genuinely useful and totally trustworthy."
- Peter Kreeft, author, Handbook of Catholic Apologetics
