Resources, Book Club, Tool Kit

There are thousands of resources and materials that could be placed on a resource reference such as this one. Traditional classic books have not been included as they already are on many reading lists one may find. The ones here were specifically chosen with the focus on evangelization and growth of mature Christian communities. They can be used in your Home Group Gatherings or in your Parish to promote a culture of faith and a church that goes out.

In consultation with several French Leaders, the French resources are inserted here, as many will chose to read the English version of the book.
