"Thank you Allan for sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ at our John XXIII Symposium. An excellent presentation grounded in scripture, the tradition of the Church and real life experience infused with humor. You put 'flesh and blood' on the new evangelization and have given us much food for thought and reflection."
Bishop David Ricken, Green Bay, WI,
Chairman of the Committee on Evangelization and Catechesis of the U.S.C.C.B.

Jesus the Evangelist:

A Gospel Guide to the New Evangelization
What people are saying...
"With an engaging style, Allan Wright makes the events and people of the New Testament come alive for his readers. 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

"I appreciate your wisdom in presenting Catholics a concrete tool for embracing the New Evangelization from the Divine Master Catechist and Evangelist Himself, Jesus Christ."

Most Reverend Paul S. Loverde, Bishop of Arlington

"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

Dr. Scott Hahn and Dr. Peter Kreeft

"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." 
       Dr. Scott Hahn
