Reviews - The How-To Book of Sacramentals

Average Customer Rating
(3.00/5 Stars, 1 Ratings) Based on 1 Reviews

Helpful but not that much

Review: I would have given this reference book a much higher ratings but I was disappointed in the fact that the writer also touched on some customs like the "Dia Del Muerto" customs which for me bordered on superstitions and was surprised to see it counted as sacramentals. I would have expected the author to expand further on Holy Water, Rosary, Medals etc rather that a brief historical description. What we need here is "why" so to help us defend our faith to the various Christian denominations. Best Uses: Reference; Cons: Disappointing; Describe Yourself: Bookworm; Pros: Easy To Read, Informative, Well Written
