Set sail aboard a historical journey through evangelization with papal homilist Raniero Cantalamessa as your captain.
About this Book:
Compiling the meditations that he delivered at the Papal Household of Pope Benedict XVI during Advent 2010 and 2011, Fr. Cantalamessa traces the waves of evangelization from the first centuries of Christianity to the present day. On this horizon where history, geography, and culture meet, he propels us toward the shores of the new evangelization. Diving into scientific atheism, rationalism, and secularism, Cantalamessa navigates through the major modern challenges that the announcement of the Gospel encounters. His writing is anchored in quotes from Scripture, the Church Fathers, Vatican Councils, papal documents, saints, doctors of the Church, theologians, philosophers, poets, authors, and scientists. By mapping out the route that evangelization has taken, Cantalamessa provides readers with a compass steering them not only toward an understanding of the new evangelization, but also toward putting that understanding into practice.

"[Navigating the New Evangelization] offers a compelling critique of atheistic scientism, rationalism, and secularism while drawing the reader ever more into the heart of Christ's message and the Church. The words of Christ, the lives of the saints and holy men and women, and the teachings of the Church are echoed in every page. This text offers an excellent contribution to the New Evangelization."
