In an era marked by rampant secularism and endless noise, the ten principles of Let Beauty Speak empower Christians to evangelize the world by bringing beauty to the forefront of their lives and reminding the world what it means to be human. This book is particularly timely given the social unrest, political upheaval, and cultural strife of our times. The world's problems cannot be solved by worldly solutions. Politics, medicine, technology, and other secular fields have their place in society, but the deepest existential questions of the human heart can only be answered by the beauty of holiness found in the lives of the saints.
From embracing childlike wonder to integrating prayer, work, and leisure into your everyday life, this is your how-to guide for evangelizing others by first living your humanity well. If not you, then who? If not now, then when? Turn these principles into a way of life, and you'll join the long line of saints whose holiness was the remedy for the isolation, confusion, and meaninglessness of their times.

"From the time of the great Greek philosophers, the good, true, and beautiful were seen as inseparable. Beauty is always good and true. It can be the still, small voice crying in the wilderness, calling us to higher things. Jimmy Mitchell communicates this with an eloquence and elegance which is itself a thing of beauty."
— Joseph Pearce, Biographer of Shakespeare, Solzhenitsyn, Tolkien, and Chesterton
"This book strikes at the heart of one of the fundamental tenets of Catholicism, namely, that faith is an encounter, a revelation that calls us out of ourselves and into the beauty of God's love."
— Fr. Blake Britton, Author, Reclaiming Vatican II; Contributor, Word on Fire Institute
"For more than a century we've labored to build a city that's noisy and ugly — and boring us to death. If you suspect there's something better, follow that hunch through the pages of this book. You'll find not just something beautiful, but the Way of Beauty itself."
— Mike Aquilina, Series Editor, Reclaiming Catholic History
"Jimmy Mitchell is a masterful storyteller. This book will leave you inspired and recharged in living a life in search of the truth, beauty, and goodness your heart so deeply longs for."
— Emily Wilson Hussem, Author, Go Bravely: Becoming the Woman You Were Created to Be
"Drawing deeply from practical experience and all he has learned from the brilliant light of divine Beauty, Jimmy Mitchell presents a wise and refreshing challenge to become beautiful ourselves."
— Paul Thigpen, Ph.D., Author, The Biblical Names of Jesus: Beautiful, Powerful Portraits of Christ
"In an age that seeks to eliminate truth and redefine goodness, beauty has a way of disarming our hesitations and captivating our attention. After reading the first chapter, I could not help but discuss the book's principles with my wife and children at length. You may do the same and experience gratitude for the resulting transformation."
— John Zimmer, Vice President of Apostolic Development, Fellowship of Catholic University Students
