A Must have book for any and all Catholics
is a wonderful book for new catholics, cradle catholics or those friends and family members that are wanting to know all about Catholism. Did you know this book is based on the film series? I didn't this would be a wonderful bible study for any catholic church group. Each chapter of the book aligns with the DVD series.
Catholicism: A Journey To The Heart of The Faith
has devoted a chapter each to The Mass and Mary. The chapters dives deep into the steps, symbols and meaning of mass. He also spends a whole chapter telling the reader all about Mary the mother of God. This is the best book about the catholic faith. I loved how much I learned from it, I thought I knew this stuff already but he taught me so much! This book isn't just a history book about the Catholic Church and Faith it is about the theological writings and each chapter fully discusses and has you discovering so much about Catholism.
This book is not the what Catholics do and why but more the meanings behind why mass is they way it is. Why many women are important in the catholic faith (ie: Mary, St Therese just to name a few). Catholicism A Journey to the Heart of the faith documents the foundations, traditions, works, trials and history of the Catholic Church all over the world.

has done a wonderful job and explaining the catholic faith, history, teachings and traditions to every one who reads this book. I really hope I can talk my Womens Faith group do use this (along with the DVD's) as a bible study group next year. This book would be a wonderful book for any person that is Confirmed this year or any time.
I'm so glad to have this book in my Catholic Faith library. I know this is one that I will reference many times in my life.
