Format: Hardcover
I didn't actually finish this. I stopped 2 chapters from the end but I feel I've read enough to review the book as I have read, and immensely enjoyed, Michael Coren's previous two books on Catholicism/Christianity. I found this a chore to read though and just sighed and closed the book upon the final two chapters. I'm a practicing Catholic and found that I knew everything this book had to say and that most of it was a repeat of what Coren had to say in his previous books. I'm not really the intended audience for this book and is felt like "preaching to the choir". Coren is very good at telling it like it is though and he accomplishes what he sets out to do here. If you don't understand why the Catholic Church teaches what it does and why it can and cannot change certain things it practices this book will explain that to you. If you want to understand how Pope Frances is different but why he is not really all that different this book will explain that to you. One thing the Catholic Church can never be is Protestant.

I am very impressed with this book and would recommend it as a very interesting read. The style is easy to read and the author gets his points over with regard to the future of Catholicism.

A very good read, very clear and well written. Gives the writer's views on how the Church will develop under Pope Francis, which may not be to everyone's liking.

As a fairly recent convert, refreshing to read such a positive view of the Church and explanations of heart felt beliefs that the world views with scepticism.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keeping Truth, the Church will shine as the Body of Christ 21 Feb. 2015
By M. Lozano - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Coren's book "The Future of Catholicism" touches on main themes facing the Church in the next century, and how the Church should overcome them. Whether it is dialogue with the Islamic faith, the papacy, abortion, etc., all of these matters require the Church to affirm the teachings of Christ.

I enjoyed Coren's statement regarding abortion as I have often said the same but in a different way. "At conception a child has a unique DNA and genomic character and is already unlike anyone who has been conceived or born before or anyone who will be conceived or born afterwards." What a statement to outline the beauty of life! Coren goes further in a later chapter to point out the hypocrisy of secular culture when it comes to the disabled. We pass laws and fine tune our political correctness when it comes to those afflicted with a disability, but raise no objections when abortion is now being used as the primary vehicle to abort babies known to have disabilities or Down syndrome. How we seem to care for the disabled but are the first to allow laws to prevent their existence.

Under the chapter "Church and State" Coren reinforces a point Pope Benedict XVI eloquently made that faith is not a private matter. "Truth is not geographical. If it's true in a church or a home, it's true in a parliament or a courtroom. If it's true, it's true." There is no such thing as leaving your faith to your personal life. Not sharing truth is harmful to our society, and contradicts our duty from Christ to spread truth.
4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good But Not Great 25 Dec. 2014
By Omar Vazquez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book started out really well and had that attention grabbing way of presenting the information. But as I continued to read into the final chapters, the book started to feel like it was dragging on and it was difficult at times to focus and keep attention. Unlike his first two books on Christianity: "Why Catholics Are Right" and " Heresy", this book was not as enjoyable. My main issue is that Michael at times uses the exact paragraphs from "Heresy". Overall, it is a very good book and very informative on the future of the Catholic Church. I still recommend buying it. Hopefully his newest book as of December 2014 "Hatred: Islam's War on Christianity", which I already own, will be a better, more entertaining book than this book. Michael Coren is great author.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Future of Catholicism 12 April 2014
By Frank J, Wodzinski - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Mr. Coren's book was so fascinating that I could not put it down! There is a very rosy future for the Catholic Church. Problems in the Church are nothing new. The Church has overcome other problems in its history. It overcame them all, and will overcome the present ones. Mr. Coren's book indicates that it will do so, and will emerge stroner and more beautiful than ever! .

I like the way Coran approaches the various challenges facing the Catholic Church. He has researched his material thoroughly and puts forward common sense arguments supporting how the Magisterium has guided and continues to guide through the Holy Spirit the church for the last two millennium until the end of time.....

1.0 out of 5 stars Same old garbage 18 Mar. 2015
By CG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In my opinion, this book unfortunately has nothing to do with the "future of Catholicism". It is the same old tired focus of some crazy old man that watches too much Fox News. The Pope is trying to bring people together. This book beats the same dead horse by discussing "marriage"(in reality bashes homosexuality with half truths rather than focusing on the virtues of this holy union), abortion and birth control(blah, blah...same old arguments), and the role of women in the Church. This book tries to divide people rather than try to bring them together. If you are a grumpy old man that only feels alive by getting angry at people, this is the book for you. If you are looking for something refreshing about the direction Pope Francis is taking the Church, you will have to look elsewhere.
