Reviews - What do customers think about The Best Catholic Writing 2005?
Great addition to any Catholic library Mar 18, 2006
I throughly enjoyed reading this collection of stories. At first, when I saw this book in the book store, I only wanted to buy it because of one of the Asian authors. But, when I read this book last night I couldnt put it down and I evenually read the whole thing. I loved the diversity of the selections that Doyle picked out from America to Australia and from August Turak to George Wiegel. I recommend this book to anyone interested in faith. If you have a strong connection with the Catholic faith, this book is a can't miss.
