Lent to me by the Sister leading our RCIA class  Feb 23, 2005
It's a simple enough book, with basic answers to the many questions people have about Catholicism. The Sister leading our RCIA class lent it to my husband and myself, along with another book, and my husband liked this one so much he wants to buy his own copy. Some people who have offered reviews are angry with it's view points, but I figure if thid was offered to us a a good reference while learning about the Catholic faith for a life-long comitment and conversion, It can not be all that bad with the church's teachings.
Misleading at best  Nov 13, 2001
Ambiguous and wishy-washy. Sister Charlene has a cleverly hidden agenda, which is unfortunate as this book is meant for those who have questions about the Catholic faith. The book features copious quotes from censured theologians. Perhaps the most disturbing part of this book is the presentation of fundamental option theory (which has been condemned by the Church as incompatiable with traditional teachings). I recommend books by Dr. Scott Hahn or Kevin O. Johnson for those who want to learn about authentic Catholicism.
Why Do Catholics...  Nov 8, 2000
I have to agree with the first reviewer...this is a very helpful book! The second reviewer has totally missed the mark! When I came back to really become a Catholic, after having been baptized and yet away from the church for many years, this book was invaluable. It helped me to understand why Catholic believed various things. I've used it many times, for my own understanding and as a resource as a teacher in CCD classes. Highly recommended!
A good basis for background  Jun 2, 2000
I am a teacher of religion to Senior High School students. I have a Master's in Theology and have been a teacher for 13 years. I have been looking for a book that gives a good, basic overview of the huge amount of ritual and systemic theology written in such a way that you don't need a theological degree to understand it. I am pleased with the range of material covered and the presentation of complicated theories written in ways that the "average joe" could understand. I have found this a very useful tool to help our kids and would recommend it's use to anyone.
Full of the worst sort of modernism  Jan 11, 2000
I am currently in an R.C.I.A. program that uses this book. Unfortunatly, this book has very little to commend it and makes one long for the good ol' days of the Index. Among the heresies that it promotes are 1) fundemental option theory 2) subtle arguments for the ordination of women 3)No mention of the Church's ban on contraception. Worse than all of this is the contempt the author seems to have for 2,000 years of Church history. Tradition is relegated to the dust bin...example That the mature Catholic must have faith that is built on the latest "theological trends". Funny, I thought one must have faith that is solidly built on Jesus Christ and the Church He founded. Save your money and your soul by not buying this piece of herectical trash.
