Reviews - What do customers think about What Catholics Really Believe-Setting the Record Straight: 52 Answers to Common Misconceptions About the Catholic Faith?

Very Basic Introduction to RCC Beliefs.  Apr 5, 2008
Exellent resource for the untechnical study group or for someone brand new to Roman Catholicism. If you are looking for a deeper work on the theological foundations of Roman Catholicism you can do no better than the Official Catechism of the Church (2nd edition) or even from a shorter standpoint, Kevin Johnson's "Why do Catholic's do that"?
 
For Catholics and Non-Catholics Alike  Mar 5, 2008
I found this book to be very good. 52 (arbitrary number, but a good start!) points of belief which answer questions often raised in the believer. I detected no doctrinal errors. (Although I am strictly an amateur--I am no Church authority, I freely admit!)

This is an excellent resource for those with questions about the Faith, especially those who have to answer questions from family/friends/coworkers, etc.

It includes Bible references on many points, and also references Magisterial documents and explains some of their salient points.

This is also an excellent resource for those outside the Faith who want to know what Catholics believe and why. It's like apologists say, "it doesn't bother me if you disagree with what I believe--PLEASE, just disagree with what I ACTUALLY believe and not what you may mistakenly THINK I believe!"
 
A helpful guide for those in your care  Feb 24, 2008
I bought this book a few times in the past - for myself, and to give away - as it is a good source for quick and useful information. I like how it is simple, broad and approachable, yet authoritative and clear. It's just the type of work that is perfect for new Catholics or young teens proceeding through Confirmation. True, it's no 800 page tome with every dogma, doctrine and precept in it, but it's very good at what it does - clears up misconceptions & explains what Catholics really believe. I highly recommend this simple but useful book!
 
Informative  Jun 27, 2007
Keating provides a great deal of information and sound support for his writing. I found his academic tone to be a bit offensive at times and, quite honestly, a turn off.
 
Good for its intended purpose  Apr 24, 2007
In this well-organized and concise response to 52 common misconceptions of the Roman Catholic faith, Karl Keating provides answers from scripture, tradition, and history to set the record straight. I must admit, I do not think I would have stated any of the misconceptions in the way the author did but perhaps my misconceptions are not so far off track as many. Still, the responses are cogent and concise with ample proof scripture texts and historical/traditional background. It would be a good start especially for anyone who has a limited grounding in catholic theology in preparation for further and more detailed study in the catechism of the Roman Catholic church. A good start but not a very thorough theological/doctrinal study - but, in fairness, it was not intended to be a systematic theology or Roman Catholic doctrinal summary. This is more a reactionary book in response to some rather common (and sometimes silly) notions even lifelong Catholics have accepted as fact. Very well done for its type.
