Overview

We've all heard about the Catholic Church: the pageantry, the scandals, the beliefs, the mystery. But have you wondered just what it is like to be a Catholic? What does it feel like to be Catholic? What difference does it make in your life?

Eugene Kennedy, in his usual warm, intelligent style, explores Catholicism from the human perspective -- not just listing the facts and beliefs of Catholicism, but delving into the human aspects of being and remaining Catholic. Why did James Joyce say of Catholicism, "Here comes everybody"? What moves Catholics in the pew, in the face of mounting scandals among the clergy, to continue to confidently assert, "We are the Church"? And just what does two thousand years of Church tradition mean to the faith and practice of everyday Catholics?

This cogent introduction to the richness of Catholicism is a warm, readable exploration for anyone -- whether new to Catholicism or lifelong Catholic -- who is considering embracing the Catholic way of life. It's an excellent invitation to join the family known as the Catholic Church.
