Details

"My image of God the Father, enthroned in heaven in flowing white robes and Birkenstock sandals, was overshadowed by my certainty that he didn't want me to have any fun. God was all about rules."
—from Chapter Five

 

Too many young Catholics experience their faith as Mark Hart did: They rarely miss Mass even if they don't understand it; they have a Bible even if they never read it; they go to confession even if they aren't particularly repentant.

Is that your experience of Catholicism? Is yours a faith of Thou Shalt Nots? If so, forget about a dreary life of mindless obedience to rules you don't understand. It's time to enter into the transforming light of your Creator who invites you to live from the still center of his undying love.

The author's humorous and hard-hitting reflections drive home the point that God isn't calling the reader to be a good person—someone who merely obeys the rules—but a new person in Jesus Christ.

Very honest and an enjoyable read..

Review: I bought this book for my nephew who was about to be confirmed in the Catholic Church. I read it first to be sure I wanted to give it to him. I loved it!! It helped me to understand my Catholic Faith better. Mostly, I liked it because the author talks about having a personal relationship with God, not just saying a couple Our Father's and calling it good. I have been going to a Christian and for the first time ever, I feel God's love for me. My spirituality is no longer confined just to my thinking. This book was such a blessing because now I feel good about my Catholicism AND my new found relationship with our Savior. It showed me it's ok to have something very personal with God; which is not what is normally taught to us as young Catholics.
