Hard as Nails (Book)

Product Description:

Fatica, cofounder of the Hard as Nails youth outreach, chronicles his progression from recalcitrant high school student to unordained Catholic minister in this account of his life and work with young people. Faticas in-your-face ministry, the subject of a 2007 HBO documentary, is known for such controversial methods as the Cross Walk, in which blindfolded participants experience Christs torture and death through a reenactment that uses music, shouted words and sounds to mimic the scourging and nailing of Christ to the cross. Hard as Nails Ministries grew out of Faticas work at a Catholic high school in New Jersey, and since has spread to other areas, including Barbados, reaching marginalized young people with a simple, unaffected message and methods borrowed from evangelical Protestants. Fatica writes simply and conversationally, complementing his words with moving stories and heartrending letters from young people. He also includes practical Call to Action steps for youth with particular problems and questions. Parents, youth workers and all adults who interact with young people will find this interesting and illuminating reading. (Feb.)

Justin Fatica has written something that will touch millions."-- Tom Ridge, the first U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security “With his great interpersonal gifts, Justin shines like few others I have met.” --Monsignor Robert Sheeran, president, Seton Hall University “As someone whose vocation is to be interested in characters, I was immediately drawn to Justin for his incredible physical energy and wildly dynamic personality mixed with his deep message of religious faith.” –David Holbrooke, film director, documentarian
