On Being Catholic by Thomas Howard

In his first full-length book since converting to Roman Catholicism over ten years ago, Thomas Howard presents his wonderful, refreshing insights on the "glad tidings" of the deeper meaning of Catholic piety, dogma, spirituality, vision and practice, rendered in his unique style of prose for which he is well-known. The book's chapters take the form of lay meditations on Catholic teaching and practice, opening up in practical and simple terms the richness at work in virtually every detail of Catholic prayer, piety, liturgy and experience.

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.
