 Our Description


Fr. John McCloskey has become a famous “convert maker” in the powerful corridors close to the White House. Having run the Catholic Information Center in the heart of Washington, DC from 1998 to 2004, McCloskey had direct contact with numerous well-known and lesser-known Washington figures. Among well-known Catholic converts instructed by Fr. McCloskey are Senator Sam Brownback, publisher Alfred Regnery, Dr. Bernard Nathanson, journalist Robert Novak and many others.


This work is a joint effort of McCloskey and Russell Shaw, the widely read Catholic author, speaker, and former communications director for the U.S. bishops. Drawing on moving, firsthand accounts of conversions, this book combines personal testimony, solid theology, and effective methods of communicating the Catholic Faith.

Father C. John McCloskey, III, STD is a priest of the Prelature of Opus Dei and a research Fellow at the Faith and Reason Institute. He has served as a Catholic chaplain at Princeton University and as director of the Catholic Information Center in Washington. His articles have appeared in such publications as Catholic World Report, The Wall Street Journal, and The New York Times.

Russell Shaw is the author of eighteen books and is the former information director of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops/United States Catholic Conference and Knights of Columbus. He is also a member of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem, the father of five and the grandfather of nine.

Good News, Bad News: Evangelization, Conversion and the Crisis of Faith is smaller than one might expect. It could easily take volumes to tackle such a daunting subject. Yet the simplicity of Good News, Bad News is one of its strengths. It has the effect of convicting the reader with important, if basic, points that often need to be ruminated upon—perhaps for the thousandth time—if one is to be an effective bearer of the Gospel of Christ.

Two insights resound throughout the 134-page book: the importance of friendship in the work of conversion and the often-overlooked fact that Catholics who feel that they are not well-versed in their faith probably know more than those whom they are ev Full Review...
