Description: The clichéd phrase to “preach the Gospel at all time and, if necessary, use words” is often attribute to St. Francis, but what he actually taught is in direct contradiction to the quote. Christ’s final words in the Gospel of Mark are to “go out to the whole world and proclaim the Good News to all creation.” Peter Herbeck of Renewal Ministries shows us how the Gospel is fundamentally Good News. It’s a report on what God has accomplished and it can’t be merely nonverbal.
Peter Herbeck is the Vice President and Director of Missions for Renewal Ministries. He’s the host of Fire on the Earth on Ave Maria Radio and co-hosts The Choices We Face and Crossing the Goal on EWTN television. Peter has been actively involved in evangelization and Catholic renewal worldwide for more than 30 years. He’s the author of When the Spirit Comes in Power and When The Spirit Speaks and has produced CDs and booklets about discipleship and life in the Spirit.
