Reviews - What do customers think about Twelve Tough Issues and More: What the Church Teaches and Why?

Good Conversation Starter  May 24, 2006
This little 90 pager is a great book to start many important discussions between an orthodox Catholic and a secularist, "progressive" Catholic, non-Catholic Christian, and a host of other possible people.

This work is genuinely orthdox and in tune with the teachings of the Catholic Church (I would expect no less out of an archbishop, but these days...).

This book, however, does not go into too great of detail in trying to settle these issues. Rather, it provides the background and starting point for a discussion regarding these issues.
 
FOR ALL CATHOLICS  Jan 2, 2003
Have you ever wondered exactly how the church stands on certain issues, like abortion, war, artificial insemination and the like -- and why? This book is GREAT! The Archbishop that wrote it went into wonderful detail and gave references to find more information concerning each subject, including the exact page of the Cathechism where each subject is discussed.

This is also great for a study-group, faith-sharing group or school (students and teachers) because of the simplicity of the language and there are questions after each subject explanation to help invoke conversation.

All Catholics should check this out, and non-Catholic who are interested in how the church stands on very tough issues.
