This book sees both sides of the debates it addresses, gives you the sympathetic voice of both, shows you how to restate our Catholic position so that the implications are well understood. Catholicism is all about Love - our difficulty up til now has been putting that across when faced with people who are misinformed about the fundamental reasons for what we believe to be right. Here's a beginning of an answer. It tackles the issues of the day - not every single issue that people have. But more importantly, it helps you see the compassionate argument of the anti as well as the pro side in each circumstance.
It is a precise,, straight to the point book that helps you understand better the whys and wherefores of the actual situation, due to the lack of knowledge of christian doctrine, in society and how to clarify erroneous, materialistic concepts.
Some really helpful explanations to current issues, especially useful to young adults who have not had that much instruction in the rules of the church and the reasoning behind those rules. Exactly what we were looking for.
Although of American origin this book makes Catholic teaching comprehensible and convincing without recourse to technical language from Catholic doctrine. Some of the arguments based on US statistics are not of relevance to Irish or UK societies. Would be excellant for course work with teenage students.
This book is a very calm and logical treatise counter balancing the disposable shallow message of a disposable shallow world. The media dismiss the complex arguments of logic for their shallow self centered choices, leading to a world of misguided people destroying themselves by following the wrong advise. Me Me Me. Not much use in a world of 7 billion people whether you think you are better than the animals or not. This book will give you a chance of helping people see the real truth.
