The New Evangelization Explained

Dr. Scott Hahn and Dr. Ralph Martin

Dr. Scott Hahn, noted author and Chair of Biblical Theology and New Evangelization at Franciscan University of Steubenville, distinguishes between primary and secondary evangelization, traces the use of the phrase "New Evangelization" by our popes, and explains the importance of the New Evangelization for the future of the Church.

In this interview, Dr. Hahn explains what's "new" about evangelization, as well as the important role that Vatican II and Pope Paul VI played in setting the stage for Pope John Paul II to proclaim and popularize the New Evangelization.

Dr. Ralph Martin, the Director of Graduate Theology Programs in the New Evangelization at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit and a Consultor for the Pontifical Council for the New Evangelization, gives a moving and comprehensive treatment of the origins and meaning of the New Evangelization.
