Item description for Our Cherished Beliefs: Fact or Fancy? by John McDonough...
Our Cherished Beliefs is a witty, informative and entertaining journey into present-day Catholic theology as seen from the perspective of a person in the pew instead of the priest in the pulpit. This book examines in detail the many points of conflict between official Catholic teaching and the personal beliefs held by many of the laity, in a non-scholarly, easy-to-understand ablue collara style. Using reason and logic, the writer challenges many of the churchas long-held traditions in the light of todayas contemporary world-view, with loving sympathy and compassion laced with gentle humor. An excellent stimulus for theological discussion. Highly recommended.

Reviews - What do customers think about Our Cherished Beliefs: Fact or Fancy??
Our Cherished Beliefs-a great read Sep 9, 2008
"Our Cherished Beliefs: Fact or Fancy" is a compelling re-evaluation of religious beliefs and rituals that many people have taken for granted over the centuries without really thinking about them objectively. Mr. McDonough's prose style is clear, concise and humorous - just the right tone for a book that dares to challenge long-held dogmas and send sacred cows out to pasture.
