Editorial Reviews

EWTN Host and author of over 30 books on Catholic history, doctrine and devotion - Mike Aquilina
"Even a pagan like Socrates knew that 'the unexamined life is not worth living.' Augustine showed us how to make such an examination in God's presence. And Randy Hain shows us how to do it in the modern world, as a spouse and parent."
