Books to support teaching about Modern Prophets from Novalis.
Back in 1974, Pope Paul IV spoke insightfully of evangelizing in today’s world. “Modern man listens more willingly to witnesses than to teachers, and if he does listen to teachers, it is because they are witnesses,” he said in his apostolic exhortation Evangelii Nuntiandi.
He was talking about how Christians should proclaim the Good News to the world. He insisted that to evangelize we must actually inform others of the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. At the same time, he recognized the power of the stories of real people. Through authentic lives of faith, the Gospel is communicated to others.
To put it another way: Those who practice what they preach are far more effective than those who simply preach.
