First published in 2001, Choosing to Be Catholic has sold nearly 25,000 copies and maintains its status as a Catholic parish favorite. In this revised edition, Jesuit priest, master-teacher, and bestselling author William J. O’Malley, S.J., prompts seekers and skeptics alike to ask a new set of questions as they hunger and search for God. He demonstrates once again his uncanny ability to approach the human quest for God with refreshingly frank discourse as he sorts out the Hows, Whys, and So whats of being Catholic. With razor sharp focus, O’Malley offers a cultured and deeply personal argument for Catholicism to those curious about joining the Church, those wondering if they should stay, and those “vacationing” from it.
