Hard As Nails
Pb 208 pgs
Fatica, chronicles his progression from recalcitrant high school student to unordained Catholic minister in this account of his life and work with young people.
Fatica's in-your-face ministry, 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 reaching marginalized young people with a simple, unaffected message and methods borrowed from evangelical Protestants.
Fatica writes simply and conversationally. He also includes practical Call to Action steps for youth with particular problems and questions.
