Publishers Description
What does it mean to be Catholic today?
Newly updated and revised.
How can the Catholic Church be both hugely popular and widely scorned? How can it hold onto its ancient roots and be forever changing? This updated guide tells the story of being Catholic as Catholics themselves live their faith, every day of their lives. More than ever before, this edition speaks to interested outsiders, non-clergy, and practicing Catholics, as well as to religious professionals and members of the clergy. This book explores:
a The various stances within American Catholicism today
a Recent Catholic history, most notably, the death of John Paul II and the succession of Pope Benedict XVI
a The seven sacraments
a The present state of Catholic education, Catholic identity, and Catholic social teaching

Reviews - What do our customers think?
complete idiots guide to understanding catholicism  Nov 27, 2008
Book was in terrible shape, looked like something liquid was spilled all over it. First time I have felt ripped by a used book purchased via this site
 
Distorts and misrepresents the Catholic faith  Sep 30, 2008
This book has many distortions and inaccuracies about the Catholic faith. I reccommend other sources.
 
Not to strengthen faith  Jun 22, 2008
TIG does teach about the Catholic Church, but adds too much liberal and mildly anti-Catholic commentary for it to be a strict guide. The jokes are unfunny and it's overall effect is to make the reader not think it very important to be Catholic. In other words, it's not a book you'd give somebody to strengthen their faith or to educate a potential convert. It wouldn't even be one to give somebody wanting to objectively know official Catholic teaching.

Asymmetric blog.
 
Catholic teaching  May 6, 2008
The author and publishers of this book need to seek approval from the church heirarchy to have this book listed as an actual teaching document of the church. It would be more effective and more useful if it had the "Imprimatur" of a Catholic Theologian
 
Good information but incomplete and bias  Mar 27, 2008
I was expecting something more objective in this book. It frequently referred to talking to a priest, other catholics and so on, and appeared to assume that the objective wasn't to learn more about the religion, but to become a parishioner. I also noted that it took little opportunity to address some of the more divisive issues within the church and how they might be changed, ie. scandals within the church, divisions from Protestant religions. It did have a great deal of information on the Catholic religion and helped me dispell many of the incorrect information that is out there about the religion.
