Hard questions deserve solid answers.
Tough times demand eternal truths.
For more than a decade, author, speaker, and retreat-leader Matthew Kelly has traveled the globe, sharing answers and offering the truth. They aren’t his. They’re the ones that have been taught by the Church since the first century. They’re the ones that have been lived by holy - and happy - men, women and children of faith since the time of Christ.
Here - in a simple, convincing, and entertaining style - are answers and truths. Here is the answer. Here is the truth.
Part One - We Become What We Celebrate
Part Two - The Authentic Life
Part Three - The Seven Pillars of Catholic Spirituality
Part Four - Now is Our Time

|Review:||I bought this product at a conference for Catholic Women. I've always thought that my life was lacking something and I just couldn't put my finger on what it was. I have been catholic all my life and have a good prayer life, or so I thought. My eyes where open on how to become a better self.. someone that I can be proud of and someone that God will be proud of too. I now have a desire to be holy and I believe that with the information this book gives it is now possible. This book is very easy to read and the information is very valuable.. If you are catholic and you think there is something missing from your faith life.. get this book.. you will never regret it.

|Review:||Important to address the issue of depression as a worldwide problem due to a deficiency of sound principles. However, technically the North Star does move; it only appears to remain stable. The use of this metaphor is incorrect, so please correct the way you wrote about Polaris or use a more apt metaphor. Good reading.

|Review:||This book was given out at Mass on Ash Wednesday. I did not expect much from it but was extremely surprised. A must read; I believe everyone who reads this book will come away with valuable advise. The author caught my attention immediately in the first chapter , the book is an easy read and has amazing thoughts. Certainly to focus on being the best person you can be is great advise but also how he choose to state the importance of spending your time with quality friends who inspire you and so much more ! Every single chapter has great thoughts on life I think this book is terrific. Describe Yourself: Casual Reader; Pros: Easy To Read, Informative, Page-Turner, Well Written|

|Review:||Luckily this book was given to me at church. Our small group decided to read it as a way to grow closer to our catholic faith. We found much that we disagreed with. I would not give this book to anyone and it will not be kept for my own future use. The only good thing it did was to make me defend my own personal beliefs. Cons: Disappointing; Describe Yourself: Everyday Reader|
