    A review of some more controversial Catholic beliefs and practices

    There are many topics and issues in Catholic faith that elicit a not too small amount of controversy. Unfortunately, most of those topics and issues are poorly understood, by either the critics or Catholics themselves. A lot can be said about the poor levels of catecheses of Catholics, but that will not help us much when confronting the real world situations and may in fact be counterproductive - it can in fact dissuade some Catholics from learning more about their faith. In the light of all of this, Karl Keating's book is a Godsend. It deals honestly, succinctly and informatively with all those hot button issues that surround Catholicism. The book is broken down in several major sections, each one of which contains a number of questions that one might ask about Catholic faith. The total of 52 questions comprehensively covers most of the more controversial topics. The book is fairly short, and thus it should be accessible to anyone who is serious about learning more about Catholic faith. For Catholics who have had either an inadequate formation in their faith or who have forgotten most of it this book can serve as a refresher course. On the other hand, for those who have major misgivings about Catholicism this book can server to dispel some misconceptions or at least to give an accurate picture of what it is that Catholics really believe. It may not persuade them in the soundness of the doctrines or the reasoning behind them, but at least it will provide and honest and accurate information about them.

    A 'must-have' for every Catholic Christian

    This book is 'must-have' for every Catholic's personal library--whether you are a lay person or a religious, and especially if you are a catechist or an apologist. Karl Keating's style of writing is highly readable: he is clear, concise, sometimes humorous, and always truthful. Some of the topics covered in this book are the Church and Its Authoity, the Bible, the Mass and Sacraments, evangelization, Catholic customs and devotions, etc. This book will help you to better understand your Catholic Christian faith, as well as explain it to your non-Catholic friends or defend it to your anti-Catholic adversaries.
