This special edition of Rebuilt Faith is part of The Ave Maria Press Parish Book Program.

Are you concerned about empty pews and lackluster participation by families in parish life? Do you want to reverse a decades-long decline in church attendance?

Fr. Michael White and Tom Corcoran—authors of the bestselling book, Rebuilt—have the answer: Make it all about Jesus. In Rebuilt Faith, you will learn that rebuilding and renewing faith starts with a nagging feeling that we want something more—more connectedness, more community, and more purpose. That’s the spark that leads to a flame that burns brightly around Jesus, the foundation of living and growing in faith.

Rebuilt Faith is broken down into forty days, each of which includes a quotation from a saint, a reflection, questions to ponder, a prayer, and a scripture verse. The authors organize these forty days around five steps that build on a different aspect of Catholicism and are meant to be repeated:

  • serve—serve others and develop a servant’s heart;
  • give—giving reflects the character of God;
  • engage in Christian community—we need friends of faith to become more like Jesus;
  • practice prayer and the sacraments—by praying consistently and continually taking part in the sacraments, parishioners will better connect with God; and
  • share the faith—having a heart for people who do not know Jesus and helping them in their faith journey will strengthen individual faith.

White and Corcoran have watched thousands of people in their parish in Timonium, Maryland, take the five steps of this book and grow from seeing God primarily as an abstract idea into knowing him as a deeply loved partner who provides a far greater sense of purpose for living than they had ever known before.

The forty-day structure of Rebuilt Faith is perfect for use by parishes, book clubs, and individuals during Lent.
