Publisher's Summary

Patrick Madrid has been a defender of the Catholic faith for more than two decades, and his passion has only grown. Here he collects his writings - and his memories - from the past 25 years to put into perspective how his spirituality has deepened and his understanding of Catholicism matured. Patrick recalls the people, places, concepts, conflicts, and lessons of the first quarter-century of his vocation as an apologist. His "kaleidoscope of memories" is at once challenging and inspiring, and Patrick's resolve encourages all Catholics to go forward as proclaimers of the truth of Christ.

    "Well written and well read by Mr. Madrid."

    I am happy I decided to purchase this audiobook. It sets itself apart from other apologetic books in its scope and personal stories. Mr. Madird is always charitable and lays out clear arguments.

    Story
    "Master Apologist"
    Would you listen to Envoy for Christ again? Why?

    Yes. I have already started listening again. There is so much information and apologetic techniques that once just isn't enough.


    What other book might you compare Envoy for Christ to and why?

    Anything by Scott Hahn or Peter Kreeft.


    What about Patrick Madrid’s performance did you like?

    It is very conversational in tone, and it is obvious that Madrid strongly believes in the subject matter as he reads his own words with passion and conviction.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I enjoyed his insight into Mormonism and Jehovah's Witnesses.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a truly excellent account of Madrid's life as a Catholic apologist. It's one part autobiography and one part how-to book. Madrid offers up the very entertaining details of his early years as an apologist and shares many stories "from the road" of his various speeches, debates, and random interactions with non-Catholics over the years. He gives fantastic accounts of his many encounters ranging from formalized debates at Protestant churches, to his shocking invitation to door-to-door Mormons to come inside his house for a chat. Madrid is an expert apologist and I found myself impressed with his vast and varied knowledge of scripture, as well as his rapid retorts when others try (and ultimately fail) to use scripture against him.I have already started listening to this audio book a second time in the hopes that some of his techniques (and brilliance) will sink into my subconscious. This audio book is recommended to anyone who has ever heard the Catholic faith attacked, but hasn't felt equipped to defend it.
