Forming Intentional Disciples is making waves

Forming Intentional DisciplesSherry's new book, Forming Intentional Disciples - The Path to Knowing and Following Jesus, was published in July 2012 by Our Sunday Visitor. From humble beginnings, the book has made a dramatic impact on the Catholic world. The book is providing insight, enthusiasm and hope for almost everyone who reads it. It has received very enthusiastic responses from bishops, pastors, diocesan and parish staff, and individual members of the laity.

The book has been written about on many Catholic blogs. Brandon Vogt listed it at #7 in his 15 favorite books of 2012. On the Catholic World Report website Mark Brumley included it on his 2012 top books list. Also this month, two bishops have discussed the book on their blogs:
Bishop Paul Etienne of Wyoming: Vocation: What's Yours?
Bishop Blase Cupich of Spokane, WA: "God has no grandchildren"

In the Diocese of Lansing, a one-day workshop on Forming Intentional Disciples for a parish has become a diocesan level event with the bishop offering free attendance to every priest, deacon, and lay leader in his diocese.

The workload generated by the book’s continued success is both exciting and overwhelming.  Sherry will be on the road for the next 10 weekends in a row and in Australia and Singapore for the whole month of May. The whole year is booked solid.

The timing of the book's publication in conjunction with the Year of Faith has certainly been a factor in the high level of interest. But the fact that so many people have responded with such excitement and enthusiasm shows that the Holy Spirit is at work.

When the Canadian government established a series of entomological laboratories during the 1910s, crop protection was a domain where provincial governments were already busy providing technical support to local agricultural associations. The establishment of regional laboratories resulted from the adoption of the Destructive Insect and Pest Act in 1910, legislation that portrayed insect outbreaks as an interprovincial or an international problem under federal jurisdiction. The natural order conceptualized by federal scientists and legalized by the Canadian Parliament initiated a process of centralization. As the knowledge produced by the federal scientists reinforced representation of natural phenomena that legitimated their involvement across the national territory, the federal government concurrently achieved a political order by which it exerted its power over both nature and nation.
