5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant book, thoroughly recommended, 26 Sept. 2011
This review is from: Catholic Voices: Putting the Case for the Church in the Era of 24-Hour News (Paperback)
The book, like the project that spawned it, is a thoroughly clear and thoughtful guide which I'm sure will be a vital tool for any Catholics who want to learn more about how to put the Church's views across in the public square, with friends, or in any other situation where they feel called to do so. It is aimed at those Catholics who are often put on the spot with questions, and who can struggle to find answers. Speaking as one such person, I found it to be a brilliant resource.

The book gives a clear rundown of the Catholic Church's views on a number of issues, as well as some brilliant tips for how to keep your head above water in a debate. In both, they achieve the illusive goal of being clear and orthodox, without being either too agressive and over-bearing nor too ineffectual and compromising.

The Catholic Voices project began in the UK as a way of providing ordinary, young lay Catholics to be available - and articulate - during the Pope's visit to the country in 2010. They did a great deal to move the Church's communications forward. Hence, this book is interesting both for its (albeit short) description of how the project went about its business, and for the huge resource it provides in putting forward Catholic viewpoints and tackling common objections and questions.

I bought the book expecting great things, and I wasn't disappointed. One of the best books I have read in a long time, and one which I thorough recommend.
