if you are use to his voice and radio personality on the daily basis, then you will like this book. his style is very much unchanging from his other median. everything seems so natural and personal. the story is very much a testimony of how messed up his life is and how he still gets up and tries his best to do God's work.
Funny, poignant, inspiring, an excellent story about what it's like to be a modern Catholic.
I was really looking forward to this audiobook because I love the radio show but it fell flat for me.
I think reading this would have been boring; at least listening to it made it more interesting.
I'm glad I did finally listen but I was expecting to also get 'Saint' but I don't think I will.
For me the added value content with Rob K. and Lino bantering is what made it interesting to listen to and funny.
Thanks Lino, you show us how our self centered attitudes can get in the way of Christ's message but he is always with us prompting our return to his grace. This made me laugh, ponder life, and reflect on my relationship with God.
No. No reason to.
How he started in the business through Letterman. I just thought more of the same of the show.
No one scene.
The book was just ok. I admit that I thought it was going to be more funny rather than instructional. The content wasn't bad from a Catholics point of view, which I have. However the book itself as far as being entertaining wasn't very good. Fr. Rulli has a sidekick come in, I think from a radio show that they do together, and there isn't as much chemistry as what they would like. In fact at times the partner's, also a catholic priest, contribution was more mean than poking fun. I love the male type of banter where we poke and poke at each other, but because of the lack of chemistry, it just comes across bad.
Like I said I was able to get something out of the book from Fr. Rulli's anecdotes and lessons. So it was by no means a loss. It just wasn't that funny. I do however like the fact that he brought lessons out from a "less than Holier than thou" life. Which is good for us who are also less than "Perfect" Catholics to relate to and learn. For that I thank Fr. Rulli.
If it had been funny. There were very few things that even got half a smile. In all fairness though, I didn't finish it - I couldn't, it was just bad.
It wasn't funny. Not even mildly amusing.
It was fine.
My Aunt liked it - but then she was on some strong pain medicine.
