    You may remember I struggled to finish a certain book I was reviewing. (It meant well but was just lame.) With this book, I've decided I won't feel bad about abandoning any I'm reviewing when it's clear the author's got an agenda that contradicts the Church. Megan McKenna's words are so plain that I can't stand to even publish them here, lest there be some misunderstanding about my own beliefs and intentions. I don't even like that McKenna's name will appear in a tweet of mine when this post publishes.

    Page 66 is where I finally drew the line. I was suspicious immediately though, so I peeked at the book's bibliography: Hans Kung, twice. That's enough, really, but I thought I'd give McKenna one more chance (before I got to page 66 that is) and ask on the Catholic Answers forum.

    I'd have been much better off choosing the other one I might have by Tom Peterson, founder of Catholics Come Home. To think I hesitated because it's "only" 160 pages. Live and learn, which is why I'm doing this, right? Maybe there's still a chance to get Peterson's book.

    From now on, when I haven't heard of a book's author, I will look or ask on the Catholic Answers forum before requesting it. As for this one, I'll begrudgingly hang on to it until I'm sure I don't need it anymore for this review. But it won't contaminate the library shelf. It will be put in the recycle bin with no regrets.

    On the plus side? I am publishing a week after my last post after all, which I had not expected to happen.
