Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great Catholic Book  Jan 31, 2007
This book is one of the great books that explained why Catholic people do certain things. It explains the tradition in the Catholic Church. As Catholic, the book helped me to understand why we believe in certain things, and why we do certain things. It is similar to the Catholic Answer books.
I recommend that book to any catholic who is trying to understand the church and faith more. It helps to have stronger faith.I also recommend it to non Catholics to know that the Catholic Church did not invent the tradition. It has been like that since Peter, and it will go on forever.
 
Led me to conversion  Dec 28, 2006
This is an excellently written book--in fact, hard to put down. Mr. Johnson uses subtle humor and a readily accessible style that makes for less dry reading than most books on the topic. As a person who had been asked to consider Catholicism, but who had many misgivings and misconceptions, I found this answered most of my initial questions. As a result of reading it, I enrolled in RCIA, and am joining the Catholic Church. Recommended to all Christian seekers.
 
Fantastic book for anyone  Aug 25, 2006
I became a full member of the Catholic church this Easter after years of searching and trying everything else and I can truly say that I have peace, finally. This book is a great read because it crystallizes what every Catholic intrinsically knows about the Church and it introduces the Catholic faith to everyone else. I have so much more insight and a greater understanding and appreciation of the Church's contribution throughout history. Dr. Johnson witty explanations make it all the more interesting a read!
 
A potential convert's perspective  May 9, 2006
This book is a good, solid overview of Catholicism. It's light reading, and could stand to go into more detail, but it accomplishes its objective of hitting on most of the distinctive characterictics of the religion. It's blessed by the Church also, so you can be assured that its discussion of doctrine is sound.
 
Church history for laymen  Apr 30, 2006
I chose this book when looking for instruction on doctrine, but instead found an amazing book about Church History. I could not put it down! Easily readable with subtle humor, the depth of information was staggering. Being a Catholic, I cannot comment on the the take people of other religions would have, but I assume that at the very least the history would be interesting. A great book for Catholics and I will definitely have my children read this book when they are high school age. The facinating presentation of information in this book makes on want to explore deeper from the books from the author's extensive reference list.
