Although relating to the situation of the Catholic Church in the US I am sure there is a similar situation in the UK. So much of what is reported in the surveys rings true to me. I especially like the identification of a fundamental problem for Catholic parishes, which is that many (most) Cartholics have not really internalised their faith and as a result do not have a personal relationship with God in any meaningful sense. As a result parishes are shrinking and Catholics are leaving the Church.
This book not only identifies the problem but gives good advice for all who are 'actively' involved in parish life and shows ways to help 'ordinary' Catholics to really want to be followers of Jesus Christ, to be 'intentional disciples'.
