Secure in his newfound faith - and feeling somewhat superior to his less-enlightened friend - Brumley smugly said, Yes, I, too, used to think as you do. It was an outburst of pride that undermined Brumley's arguments for the faith and likely drove his friend further away from the truth. Brumley had just committed one of the seven sins he describes in his remarkable book, How Not to Share Your Faith: The Seven Deadly Sins of Catholic Apologetics and Evangelization. In this book, Brumley describes seven of the most common and tragic mistakes he and other apologists have made over the years in their attempts to defend and explain the Catholic faith. More importantly, he reveals how you can avoid these mistakes and become far more effective at sharing your faith in a charitable way - even if that means losing an argument from time to time.Read Less

I have been going through this book, section by section, with a group of men Thursday mornings at 6 AM and have found it a wonderful tool for better understanding how to defend the faith of the Church founded by Christ himself. It reminds us all of the traps we fall in: being argumentative, focusing on winning, confusing the faith for our arguments for it, etc. This is a great book for anyone who has discussion with people about the faith.
