Presents an easy to use overview of the Catholic faith. As a cradle Catholic I have still had trouble explaining my faith. This book gives words and insight I knew but could not previously explain

Easy to understand...really enjoyed it

I'm considering converting to Catholocism. This book answered a lot of those little questions that linger in the back of your mind.. The ones that you are not sure if or how to ask. I liked the format of the book. It was easy to find specific subject matter and the questions and answers were very easy to understand. I'm going to see if there is a more detailed version of the book. This one seemed like a condensed version just hitting the highlights. I would recommend this book to anyone struggling with understanding the Catholic Church, Mass, the Saints, and any other issues that you are struggling with understanding.

I liked this book so much that I bought that regular full edition so that I could read further. It's a very friendly read and there are terrific analogies throughout to help you understand some of the more difficult to grasp concepts of our faith. Get it. Read it. Live it.

This book reminds you that God is an ever present part of our lives. This book invites us into places where you will learn or remind you that God invites us into places where He may be found. Turning the pages of this book you discover that as we pray, we are becoming hopeful people, knowing we are loved, heard and answered by God,
