does what it says
This book filled in a lot of the gaps in Catholicism for me. IT is what it says: a guide for dummies. I had read Path to Rome by Dwight Longenecker, a book by Ronald Rolheiser, a biography of Pope John Paul and Greg Watts' Catholic Lives, all excellent books. Catholicism for Dummies gave me a framework of Church history and an explanation of Church teaching. It was easy to read. I'd thoroughly recommend it.
This is an informativem easy to read book about Catholicism. The lay out is very easy on the idea. Its section on the sacraments was particularly good. Two other excellent books about Catholicism are Catholic Lives by Greg Watts and From Gangland to Promised Land.
A very informative book
As a recent convert to Christianity in general and to the Catholic church in particular, I was a little bewildered by some of the ritual and doctrines of the Catholic church. I found this book tremendously helpful in explaining the organisation, the teachings, and the rituals of the church. Some things that at first seemed quaint and even antiquated suddenly made a lot more sense when i learned of the history and tradition that surrounds the Catholic faith, and i felt myself coming to a greater understanding of the church and how through it, i can bring myself closer to Christ. It has answered many questions and put others into my mind which I have been able to discuss with my Priest and with others in the church. I would recommend this book to anyone in my position. It is written in an accessable way, you can read it from cover to cover or just dip into sections that are of most interest.
I also leant the book to my father-in-law who has been a Catholic for some years. He found it very interesting too, and I ended up having to buy him a copy in order to get mine back!
For those who want to enter the Catholic church, and for those who simply want to learn more about it, this book is for you.
