This book is beyond excellent! When I bought it at first I felt kind of crazy b/c I was 22 and I thought the book was for a younger age group. Yet I heard so many good things about the book I went ahead and bought it. I then realized that this book is for all ages. The questions that are answered in this book are questions that people of all ages ask. This book would be excellent to have in bible study or CCD classes. Everyone should read this book. Catholics that read this book can better defend their faith and people from other religions who read this book will better understand what Catholics believe. This book is well written and easy to understand. You can skip around or read from beginning to end like me. Either way you won't be able to put this book down!

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.
