"With an engaging style, Allan Wright makes the events and people of the New Testament come alive for his readers. As we face the urgent need to proclaim Christ not simply to those outside the Church, but even to those within the Church, the Word of God has the power both to enkindle faith and to stir into flame its smoldering cinders. Returning to the biblical witness to the faith of the Church, the author shows how the person of Christ and his gospel can become an exciting adventure for those who seek the truth. With keen insight, he draws us into the new evangelization, not as a program, but as the very mission of the Church in our day."
Most Reverend Arthur J. Serratelli, S.T.D., S.S.L., D.D Bishop of Paterson, NJ
"Jesus the Evangelist: A Gospel Guide to the New Evangelization invites Catholics to read the Gospels through the lens of the New Evangelization and rediscover the tradition of Catholic evangelization. Readers will learn the Catholic character of evangelization and how to be evangelizers at home, in the parish and in the world. Allan F. Wright has provided a valuable tool for parish evangelization teams, hospitality ministries and adult formation groups interested in actively participating in the Church's mission to call all people to an encounter with the Living Christ."
His Eminence Caridinal Donald Wuerl,
Archbishop of Washington, D.C.
"When Catholics hear the call to a New Evangelization, they often wonder how to go about it. Allan F. Wright shows us how, in very clear and biblical terms, drawing from the original and inspired Evangelizers: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Readable and practical, this is a book that will really empower Catholic lay people and Catholic parishes to move, as Allan puts it, from maintenance mode to mission. I recommended this book for both personal and group study, especially in this Year of Faith."
