5.0 out of 5 stars A very informative book, 3 May 2004
This review is from: Catholicism For Dummies (Paperback)
As a recent convert to Christianity in general and to the Catholic church in particular, I was a little bewildered by some of the ritual and doctrines of the Catholic church. I found this book tremendously helpful in explaining the organisation, the teachings, and the rituals of the church. Some things that at first seemed quaint and even antiquated suddenly made a lot more sense when i learned of the history and tradition that surrounds the Catholic faith, and i felt myself coming to a greater understanding of the church and how through it, i can bring myself closer to Christ. It has answered many questions and put others into my mind which I have been able to discuss with my Priest and with others in the church. I would recommend this book to anyone in my position. It is written in an accessable way, you can read it from cover to cover or just dip into sections that are of most interest.
I also leant the book to my father-in-law who has been a Catholic for some years. He found it very interesting too, and I ended up having to buy him a copy in order to get mine back!
For those who want to enter the Catholic church, and for those who simply want to learn more about it, this book is for you.

Thank you Chris!

I am converting and I have been searching for a book of this type for many months. The local bookshops (Name Witheld) will sell everything on witchcraft, satan worship, Islam and cults - but nothing on the Christian faith ........ Strange! Based on your experience and other reviews I will be buying it. Thank you.

Michael
