The Roman Catholic Church has long been the target of suspicion and hostility. But how much of this is based on ignorance and prejudice and how much is the fruit of thoughtful consideration of the facts?

I think Kaczor's book offers explanations about some of the greatest misconceptions about the Catholic Church. All too often, people want to criticize things that they are not properly informed about. This little book gives easy to understand explanations and addresses some of the controversial issues that wrongfully blame the Church for.
I felt it was a bit "out of hand:", picking and choosing facts to fit pre determined oobjectives.
