This book is a beautiful gift to humanity! It describes exactly what it is to be Catholic, which is to be a loving Biblical Christian, fantastic work to bring both Catholics and none Catholics (I myself am not one) to a closer and fuller understanding of both the church and to the Lord Christ! God Bless

A book for converts to the Catholic faith and for "cradle" catholics. Mr. Howard does an excellent job of explaining and discussing Catholic teachings utilizing a style that will appeal to everyone. Anyone that is studying apologetics or is curious about tenets of our faith should read this book. I would also recommend it to those that are "catholic curious" and to Protestants that want to more about Catholics.
