    "Catholicism clarified for me"

    This book answered many questions for me about the Catholic faith. JP II clearly states the reasons behind the church teaching and why the church doesn't bend and alter it's teaching to suit the repeated demands of the secular world to do so. If anyone really wants a balanced view on the controversial teachings of the Catholic church - the hard ones, ie. abortion, population control, euthanasia, the death penalty, the UN and globalization of religion, national soveregnty, personal responsibility, and more, then this book is for you. Some issues are so complex that you have to have a very high intelligence just to be undecided. After listening to this book you'll be more informed and more able to decide what is true about the Catholic faith. Because that is all that matters - is it true or not? Not "how do I feel about it?"
