Publisher's Summary

Over the past 20 years, Matthew Kelly has seen more of the world than most presidents and more of the Church than most bishops. Now, in this unique and timely book, he proposes that Catholicism is not a lifeless set of rules and regulations, but a way of life designed by God to help each person reach his or her full potential. With remarkable insight, Kelly dispels dozens of myths that surround the rejection of Catholicism today and provides a profound and practical vision of what will lead the Catholic Church to thrive again in the future. Rediscover Catholicism is quickly becoming the most-read Catholic book of our times. From the spellbinding opening story, Kelly grips listeners and takes them on a life-changing journey to rediscover the genius of Catholicism.

A good reminder of a wonderful Gift

The Church is a wonder and also ordinary. It draws equally the truly gifted person as well as the most ordinary. It is the great equalizer and a true spiritual elevator always offering a secure path to God. Mr. Kelly, in a very simple way, reminds us of these things. He is clear and easily followed.

Loved this!

This book as awakened a fire inside my heart! For God, for The Church, and to be the best version of myself. In the hopes that I have the courage to inspire more Catholics, people of faith, and people who do not yet know the gift of God!

Very one-sided, Americentric book.

If you're a mid-western conservative American Catholic who prefers to see our Church as a place to recharge your battery, this is the book for you. Not a book that really challenges a person to grow to question the direction our world is heading in terms of the important social justice issues of our time such as mass migration due to political unrest, war, climate change, etc. This is an easy read for those who may be questioning their faith. Otherwise, look into how you might make a real contribution to change.

Incredible!

Matthew Kelly is a disciple! His knowledge of what every catholic is going through and needs is based off his experiences and observations. This book is a blue print for the future of the Catholic Church in its quest to become a beacon of hope that is so desperately needed in our society. Matthew Kelly's narration is compelling and keeps you in anticipation of what is to come. Thank you Matthew Kelly for reenergizing my desire to be part of the church again!

One of the best books I've ever read.

An insightful and motivating message that renewed my love and appreciation for my Catholic faith. Encourages virtue and focuses how we can become the best version of ourselves.

Great message

Matthew Kelly's message is 6 stars on a 5 star scale. He is a dynamic speaker - only wished he would have "proclaimed" his text rather than read.

Amazing discovery of truth, inspiration and hope!

Matthew Kelly knows he is only one person and he alone can not change the modern values
of this time. But together we can all work to become the best versions of who we were created to be and work towards sharing the teachings of our Catholic faith. This book was a beautiful reminder of how to seek meaning again after years away from my Catholic faith. Thank toy Matthew for such a wonderful resource! A book I'll read again and again!

A Guide Book to Catholic Renewal

A very good synopsis of what needs to be done in the Catholic Church in America to bring about authentic renewal. Matthew Kelly is very thorough and systematic about what needs to be done. As a former Catholic who has returned to the faith, I found his diagnosis spot on. The book is lengthy but well worth the listen. Very analytical and enlightening.

Must Read Self-Help Book

This book was recommended to me by my dad who actually bought me the print copy which I read and then went back and bought again on Audible because I found it so good. Beyond this title, which should not detour anyone from reading this rich content, there are so many excellent take aways. I was so skeptical due to the name of this book but if you can just put that aside, give it a reader's chance, you will be so happy that you did. I only have about 5-10 books that truly spark joy over and over again and this is one of them. I highly recommend-
