An excellent book for Catholics and Protestants alike
Contrary to this though, is the book's unique ability to explain the faith in a way that is entirely understandable to someone who doesn't understand why Catholics "do what they do." It is NOT pushy, does NOT insult protestants for not being Catholic, and isn't over-the-top preachy, making you feel like you "should become Catholic or else." In fact, David Curry wrote this book in part to explain to his protestant friends why he became Catholic. Instead, it documents the key parts of our faith, explaining how each of them draw us closer to Jesus.
Lastly, are you not sure about God in general? I really believe that this book does a great job talking about God and how faith in Him is able to enrich one's life tremendously.
Whether you simply want to learn why Catholics "do what they do," are considering becoming Catholic, or are a Catholic who wants deeper insight into the Church and our amazing Lord, this book is for you! It will not disappoint!

Very weak apologetic
Mr. Currie went from what one extreme to another, from legalism to catholathism. He finds a few issues that he believes the catholic church is right on and assumes they must be right on all the other issues as well. That to me is not good enough to ignore the clear teaching of scripture, but the Bible is not enough for Mr Currie. Mr. Currie should also read history because Catholics did not kill John Wicklif because he made a bad translation of the Bible. I respect Mr. Currie's heart for God I just question whether he has studied out all the issues completely.
