Editorial Reviews

Bud Macfarlane, Jr.
This book should be on the bookshelf of every Catholic home and gobbled up by every Youth Group!
Edward Peters
Teenagers ask tough questions, and then they want short answers. Matt Pinto, not so long out of his own teenage years, delivers. This is the book I recommend be put in the hands of any teen who wants to know in brief terms what the Catholic Church is, why it believes what it believes and why it does what it does, and what difference it all makes to folks like you and me. I recommend the book strongly, and suggest it as an excellent gift idea for parents, grandparents, and Confirmation sponsors.
Mary Beth Bonacci
The most comprehensive question and answer book on the Catholic Faith that I've ever seen!
Paul Lauer
This book brings complex Catholic teachings down to a level that teens can understand.

    You have to read this!!!

    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!

    GOOD BOOK

    I am fourteen....my parent gave me this book to read and the questions are very interesting. Some were a bit awkward, ones i would never ask...so it would be good for 13 and up. I was actually wondering...."did adam have a belly button?" Because it is really a good question!!!!

    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.
