Overview

This new version of Matt Pinto's popular work offers today's Catholic, young and old alike, a collection of clear and concise answers to questions about the Catholic Faith. Best of all, the 200 questions addressed by Mr. Pinto came from real Catholic teenagers from all over the United States.

A well-known apologist and co-founder of the popular apologetics journal Envoy Magazine, Matt Pinto has an extensive personal background working with Catholic youth. Working for the Archdiocese of San Diego in both youth and young adult ministry, Matt developed a program of evangelization that has become a national model for success. Popular Catholic speaker and host of EWTN's youth oriented TV show Life on the Rock, Jeff Cavins says of Matt Pinto, "Those who know the author are impressed with his energy and enthusiasm in his work with young people. He knows how they think and the social and spiritual situations they face. As a popular youth speaker, Matt Pinto is a master at applying the truths of the Church to the ever-changing moral and social landscape. And now he brings his energy, enthusiasm, and skills to the written page." And now St. Joseph Communications has put his work into a format that can meet teens where they are: at home, in the car, on the beach, or wherever they listen to tapes or CDs!

Through his involvement in Catholic youth and young adult ministry, Matt Pinto has personally witnessed hundreds of teens and "Generation Xers" experience genuine conversion and surety of faith after being effectively introduced to the powerful life-changing teachings of Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church. What's the secret? According to Matt, teens want clear Catholic truth, and respond most enthusiastically when the faith isn't "watered down." He relates that, contrary to popular opinion among some DREs and other Catholic educators, teens don't run from the "tough teachings" when Catholic truth is taught with conviction. Teens are looking for a firm foundation in a changing world. The Catholic Church provides that foundation and Did Adam and Eve Have Belly Buttons? provides the kind of uncompromising answers that teens are hungry for.

Matt Pinto insists that "Without a firm understanding of Catholic truth, young Catholics will flounder. They will be unsure of who they are and what they stand for." But with the answers in this timely presentation, young Catholics will be equipped to embrace, explain, share and defend their faith. Did Adam and Eve Have Belly Buttons? is perfect for Confirmation class, RCIA, youth group or other religious education classes. Order today!

    Offensive and Degrading- Gives Catholics a Bad Name

    Honestly, I find that this author has put into words so many prejudices that the Catholic Church holds. Matthew Pinto constantly throughout his book displays his discrimination towards other religions as well as homosexuals and even women. Question #95, which deals with abusive relationships, and how women are not able to remarry or divorce if there spouse is abusive towards them, provides an extraordinary example of what exactly is wrong with this book. I, born and raised Catholic, read this book as I was preparing for my Confirmation, and it really forced me to question my faith and whether I wanted to be a part of a religion that holds the beliefs that Pinto asserts the Catholic Church holds. Question #95, as well as those about women becoming priests really changed my outlook on Catholicism, and not in a good way. While Pinto seems knowledgeable of the Catholic faith, his answers display a disregard for others, such as gays and lesbians, as well as a superior tone which serves to give Catholics a bad name.

    Accurate yet simple answers

    Based on actual questions from teens, this book's answers are carefully documented-- not just the author's personal opinions. An honest yet gentle presentation of how Catholics are called to live. A quick source for my classes and a great gift idea.

    Honest

    Based upon the comments of the first two reviews, one would think that Matthew J. Pinto's book was not worth reading. However, quite the opposite is true. Of course this book is only going to represent the Catholic Church's views ... it was written for Catholic teens to help them understand the basic principles of Catholic teaching! It is easy to understand and gets to the point of questions which many teens have. I think this is a very useful book and should be a staple in every Catholic teen's collection.

    Not Very good

    I thought this book was pretty narrow-minded, and didn't have other people's point of views besides the Catholic Church's. It didn't strike me as a good read.

    ignorant

    This book is perhaps the most narrow-minded piece of literature that I've ever read. It's ignorant, and shows me just what exactly the Catholic Church thinks is 'correct'. Congratulations, Matthew J. Pinto, you just ruined my day. And I'm a Catholic.
