Publishers Description People have finally figured out that things, and a purely worldly life, are simply not enough. They are looking for something deeper, something spiritual; they are looking for God. The problem is, so many people talk about spiritual things, all of them seem sure, but they contradict one another. This has left the modern person feeling a little helpless about what to believe. To free us from being at the mercy of the last person who had our ear, God wrote the truth into our nature. It is there to be seen by anyone who knows where to look. It will be seen if it is explained so that it makes sense, so that a person can see it for him or herself. Such is the purpose of A Faith That Makes Sense. With Cormier's guidance you will find that not only does faith make sense, but it offers a peace, purpose, and joy almost too wonderful for words.

An Easy to Read and Reflect Guide Aug 10, 2000
Fr. Bob's book was written with everyone in mind. It is easy to read and thought-provoking. Each chapter can be read in just a few minutes and yet provides enough material for meditation throughout an entire day.
Questions are raised that, when reflected upon, lead the reader to a better understanding of the real meaning of life. This, in turn, brings about a sense of peace and joy that so many of us seek daily.
I've shared the book with friends, family members and co-workers who are looking for help with their faith. I highly recommend it as a reference book in any personal library.
Life's Instruction Manual Aug 9, 2000
Finally a book that people of all religions, races, and ages can relate to. This book has become my instruction manual for life. Often people feel that they ask God for guidance and he doesn't seem to be answering them. This is not true at all. Through this book you will find the answers you are looking for. You will learn that God has given us many things to help us get through life one day at a time, you just have to look for them. My copy of this book is filled with post-it notes that mark the sections I need to constantly refer back to. With all honesty I can say that this book has changed my life and when ever I am in a rut I can turn to it to remind myself of God's plan. I recommend this book to anyone who wants a better life through faith and have given it over and over again as a gift.

ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT Aug 7, 2000
This book is very insipring. It changed by attitude tremendously. I would always get annoyed with people when they did thing that got me upset and after reading the book I realized that people are just being people and you cannot change the world so you must accept and work with it. "NO ONE IS PERFECT".
It was a good guideline for me and I will read it again because there are other parts of it that I can benifit from.
I have passed the book along to other family members.
