Testimonials

Thomas Smith is in the top 10% of the best Catholic speakers today. He has the rare gift of connecting faith with life, the head with the heart. I cannot recommend him more highly.

     – Dr. Timothy Gray • President of the Augustine Institute in Denver, Colorado

Thomas Smith is one of the most gifted speakers I know. He has an unusual gift for making the beautiful details of salvation history accessible to those who are just beginning as well as those who have been studying the Bible for many years. This is a rare gift and Thomas does it with generosity and enthusiasm. Those who have heard Thomas speak, will walk away wanting to know more about the Bible and more importantly will want to deepen their relationship with the author, the living Word, Jesus Christ.

Thomas Smith is gifted with the ability to express complex and well-researched materials into simple and very understandable presentation. Not only is it evident that he has command of the subject at hand, but that he has lived it and incorporated it in his own life, hence, he speaks from his heart and directly to his listeners’ hearts. He is a dynamic and captivating speaker.

Thomas Smith has been a great blessing to have teach in various ways at our parish and in the Denver area. He has wonderful insights and wonderful personal way of getting those across to everyday Catholics. I would certainly recommend to pastors and Adult Education Directors to have Thomas Smith speak at their own parish.

Thomas Smith is a gifted, dynamic speaker with an uncommon depth of knowledge. He really gets the audience engaged, thinking & praying!
    – Deacon Scott Pearhill • Holy Spirit Catholic Community in Pocatello, Idaho
Thomas has been to our parish twice in less than 18 months because people wanted to hear more from him. He has many amazing gifts – eloquence, humor, wisdom, spiritual insight and catechetical knowledge – that he uses each like an artist uses assorted brushes to paint a beautiful portrait of scripture that is understandable, practical, and inspirational. The enduring gift that Tom leaves behind is a framed canvas of the Word for people to further contemplate and study on their own.

We have had the privilege of having Thomas Smith at our parish in Singapore for a biblical seminar and it was a resounding success. Feedback from the participants was enthusiastic and encouraging. It built a deeper sense of the relevance of scripture in their life and a thirst to further develop their understanding and love for the Word of God.
