I'm not a catholic, yet intrigued. this book was teeming with knowledge and insight. Catholicism is such a complex belief system to me but this helped shine some light. It didn't really cover their ideas and thoughts as far as angels and demons per se, however the everyday catholic and his/her life is greatly displayed. Thank you.
Say something about yourself!
As a returning Catholic I found this book very good, it refreshed my memory on all topics.
The description of the Catholic priest scandals as a bad marriage. The concept of marriage is still sound and not to be blamed. In the Catholic priest scandal the religion is not to be blamed it was just a couple of bad apples.
I found this to be a refreshing book to read...
