Product Description

Regular readers of America, the Jesuit weekly, will recognize the witty wisdom of Father O'Malley, They will also understand the format of this text, which would be an invaluable resource for parish discussion groups. Catechists in need of straight answers for potential converts will be thankful for the list of questions that follow each chapter.

In addition to being a commentary on basic dogma, the book furnishes a historical frame, which enhances context. O'Malley’s familiarity with past and current culture enables him to introduce Catholicism to a society struggling with the manipulation of values and the difficulty of articulating spiritual questions. The lightness of his diction and the sureness of his tone put his readers at ease and explain his popularity.

Publisher's Description

This book asks: Is the question of being Roman Catholic the same as the question of how you like your roast beef cooked, or the same as the question of your being of some ethnic group, or the same as the question of your being Democrat or Republician? This book hopes that it is as important as any of these questions.
