The original edition of "Growing Up Catholic," along with its sequels, struck a heavenly chord with a generation of Catholics of all persuasions. Now, to commemorate the Great Catholic Jubilee of the Year 2000, the authors bless us with an updated and expanded version of this beloved national bestseller. Filled with a witty, poignant, and downright hilarious potpourri of essays, lists, games, drawings, photos, and quizzes, it includes the best of all three "Growing Up Catholic" books, along with many all-new features, such as:
Jubilee 2000: Not Your Average Birthday Party
Father Phil: Confessor to the Sopranos
Who Will Be The Next Pope?: A Handicapper's Guide
Ansubstantiationtray: Can't Anybody Here Speak Latin Anymore?
For Catholics of all ages -- from those who lived through Vatican II to those who've never seen a nun's habit except in a movie -- "Growing Up Catholic" celebrates in a lighthearted way the funny and sublime side of day-to-day Catholic life.

You have got to be a hard core Catholic to understand and appreciate this book. I found the contents to be humors, accurate and a little insulting to the whole catholic religion. You will defiantly get more than a few chuckles out of this book. The sad thing about all the descriptions is that they are right on and describe our religion to a tee. You will find yourself laughing over and over again. If you have a question about the Catholic faith you are sure to find a laugh out loud answer here. Growing Up Catholic will have you looking for sin around every corner. I give Growing Up Catholic 4 stars.
I want to thank the authors Mary Jane Frances Cavolina, Jeffrey Allen Joseph Stone, Maureen Ann Teresa Kelly and Richard Glen Michael Davis and publisher Broadway Books for bringing good clean Christian books like this one to readers like me. I would also like to thank Blogging for Books for providing me with this book in exchange for my honest review.

It is funny and one of the most enlightening books to learn more of our church history. If you've ever wondered what the Catholics go through growing up - this will keep your interest. P.S. I'm Jewish.
