Messy & Foolish

Pope Francis says he wants “a mess.” Are you foolish enough to make one?

We Christians claim to have a great message for the world. But if it’s so great, why are more people leaving the Church than joining? The message clearly isn’t getting through. We must be doing something wrong.

Matthew Warner has spent the last twelve years passionately sharing the life-changing truths of the Christian faith with others. As a student of the Information Age, he is eager to use every means of communication at his disposal to help the Church share her message. In his attempts, he’s reached millions of people by developing faith-based websites, blogs, and email lists, and engaging a large audience through social media. And as the creator of his own innovative communication tool used by thousands of churches worldwide, he's experienced the good, the bad, and the ugly when it comes to evangelization.

Along the way, he’s made a lot of mistakes trying to share the faith with others — but he’s also seen what works. That's what this book is about.

Messy & Foolish presents a fresh vision for evangelization that will inspire you to quit the lesser pursuits of your life and accept nothing less than the joyful, adventure-filled, contagious life God intends you to live.

Pope Francis was right. It’s time to make a mess. It’s time to change the world. And we are just the fools to do it.

Messy and Foolish January 3, 2017
Reviewer: Michael from Schuylkill Haven, PA  
I am always looking for deep and heavy books to help firm up my Catholic faith but this was a delightful, light and quick read.  The two biggest take aways for me were: the phrase "poverties of modernity" which is a book unto itself and the section on Why Be A Fool.  The words in italics, secular questions about the faithful, were an exposure of our basic image as followers of Christ.  Thanks for the good Christmas read!
