Descriptions Forming Intentional Disciples: The Path to Knowing and Following Jesus book
How can we transmit a living, personal Catholic faith to future generations? By coming to know Jesus Christ, and following him as his disciples.These are times of immense challenge and immense opportunity for the Catholic Church.Consider these statistics for the United States.Only 30 percent of Americans who were raised Catholic are still practicing.Fully 10 percent of all adults in America are ex-Catholics.The number of marriages celebrated in the Church decreased dramatically, by nearly 60 percent, between 1972 and 2010.Only 60 percent of Catholics believe in a personal God.If the Church is to reverse these trends, the evangelizers must first be evangelized-in other words, Catholics-in-the-pew must make a conscious choice to know and follow Jesus before they can draw others to him. This work of discipleship lies at the heart of Forming Intentional Disciples, a book designed to help Church leaders, parish staff and all Catholics transform parish life from within.
