Reviews - What do customers think about Discovering Christ: An Inquiry and Meditation?
Pretty cover... Not a very smart read... Apr 10, 2010
(This was not written by Francis Kelly, a priest, as stated below the description of the book. It states clearly this is a book by Patrick Madrid.)
Purgatory is a subject Catholics are always bombarded with. The scripture and church teachings used in this little booklet are written and composed in a very amateurish setup for a stellar apologist like Patrick Madrid. Booklet is "ok"... But nothing new or even taylor written accurately and concisely. The cover is pretty. The substance inside is "small" and very "sheepishly" written. Sorry, folks.. ;-)
I recommend instead "Purgatory A Brief Explanation", by Steve Ray...
A pocket guide to Purgatory Nov 7, 2009
This book explains so even the most uniformed can understand why and how Purgatory is real. Patrick Madrid is a master at explaining the Truths found in Scripture and history. I recommend everyone read this short book to help them start to "defend the faith" and all the Catholic Church teaches.
excellent quick read Mar 18, 2009
This little booklet is packed full of information. It's easy to understand, and the author has referenced the Bible, the Cathechism of the Catholic Church and the Church Fathers. The topic of Purgatory can be confusing, but the author has done a great job of clearing up confusion and misconceptions.
