Reviews - What do customers think about Do I Have To Go??

Misleading cover but good read  May 27, 2010
The cover is misleading. At first glance it appears this book is for young adults or teens. However, it is for anyone who questions the reason for attending Mass. This is great for adults who may have forgotten their early catechesis. An excellent source of information. A great review of key faith issues.
 
Succinct Study of the Mass  Jan 27, 2010
"Do I Have to Go? 101 Questions about the Mass, the Eucharist, and Your Spiritual Life" is primarily written for teenagers and young adults who are questioning the reason for needing to go to Mass each Sunday. Yet, Matthew Pinto and Chris Stefanick have gone far beyond their intended purpose. This book is a succinct study in why our Mass is the way it is and the benefits it holds for our lives. It is worthwhile for anyone who wants to learn more about the Mass. The question and answer format makes it very readable. The questions are ones that many may have asked. Examples include, "How do we know that God exists?" "Why does Mass have to be so boring?" "Do I really have to go to Mass every Sunday?" and "What evidence is there that the early Church believed in the Real Presence?" Pinto and Stefanick are able to take some very complex realities and make them understandable. "Do I Have to Go" is also a great resource for when someone asks a question about our Mass and you aren't exactly sure of the answer. In reading this, I learned several things about why we use the words we do and make the gestures we do at certain points in the liturgical celebration. I highly recommend "Do I Have to Go?" for anyone who has questions about the Catholic Mass.
 
Buy this for your teen  Apr 14, 2009
My teens (ages 14, 16 & 18) love this book as well as the others in the series: Did Jesus Have a Last Name? And 199 Other Questions from Catholic Teenagers and Did Adam and Eve Have Belly Buttons?: And 199 Other Questions from Catholic Teenagers. They recently attended an "ecumenical" mission project with other teens from our military chapel as some of the few Catholics going. They were able to successfully use this book to help them calmly defend their Faith when it was aggressively challenged by a couple of the "Non-denominational" teens on the trip. Highly recommended!
