Examination of Conscience
With the exception of Chapter 3, and the final section on preps for confession, book is long on theological words that requires in depth analysis. Chapter 3 is the heart of the book with a detailed description on emotions and feeling before and after confession, and is clearly understandable. The final section is an excellent compendium for participating in the sacrament of confession. Specifically for chapter 3 I am pleased to have this book.
Practical, Some Old-Fashioned language

Recommend it especially for the practical guide to examining conscience in the back of the book. One star reduced for the main text; reason being that the language used is somewhat old-fashioned. Worthwhile if one takes the time & patience to read through long, clause-filled sentences and rather negative tone in the first few chapters.
