Book Review - The Urgency of the New Evangelization: Answering the Call



If you care about the salvation of souls (yours and those you know and love) you MUST read Dr. Ralph Martin’s book, The Urgency of the New Evangelization: Answering the Call

It is a clear and concise explanation of an essential Truth we rarely hear preached in our Churches anymore – there is a hell and it is being heavily populated.

For too long we have flipped Church teaching upside down suggesting that it is pretty smooth sailing to the pearly gates.  Many of our contemporary teachers erroneously tell us that we ‘have a reasonable hope that all will be saved”. That is not what our Lord told us.

Unless we return to His Truth – “that the road is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it” (Mt 7:14), we will deprive ourselves and those we love of the precious and undeserved Gift our Lord suffered and died to offer us – eternal salvation. 

We are in the midst of a Jubilee Year of Mercy. We should seek God’s mercy and extend mercy to all with whom we interact.  One way of doing this work is to share Dr. Martin’s book as widely as possible. The time for Mercy will come to an end. At some point chosen by our Lord, we will all stand before His Throne of Justice.  It will be too late then to realize the Evil one has eternally mislead us.

Please make reading and sharing The Urgency of the New Evangelization: Answering the Call a priority this Lent!  You can engage in no better or more urgent work of mercy.
