  • Letters To a Young Catholic
  • By renowned papal biographer George Weigel
  • Revised and expanded edition of a modern spiritual classic
  • Covering the realities that each young person faces

In this remarkable exploration of the Catholic world, prominent Catholic author and papal biographer George Weigel offers a luminous collection of letters to young Catholics, not-so-young Catholics, and curious souls who wonder what it means to be Catholic today.

Weigel takes readers on an epistolary tour of Catholic landmarks—from Chartres Cathedral to St. Mary's Church in Greenville, South Carolina; from the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem to G.K. Chesterton's favorite pub in Oxford; and from the grave of a modern martyr in Warsaw to the Sistine Chapel. Weaving together insights from history, literature, theology, and music, Weigel illuminates the beliefs that give Catholicism its distinctive texture and explores the theological importance of grace, prayer, vocation, sin and forgiveness, suffering, and—most importantly—love.

Revised and updated with five new "tour stops," Letters to a Young Catholic will inspire not only the young generation of Catholics whose World Youth Day celebrations have launched an era of renewal for the Church, but also the faithful, the doubtful, and the searchers of every age.

    Excellent Collection of Essays

    A compilation of essays by George Weigel, a Catholic writer who hails from Baltimore Maryland, there is some content that is far beyond any man. But in all of the essays that I have read, there is treasure in the accessible and treasure in the sublime. As such there is food for thought for the now and to ponder for the future. I HIGHLY recommend for Catholics of all ages, especially twenty and thirty year olds who just beginning to know how they want to walk out their faith.

    Letters to a Young Catholic

    Not at all what I expected. The title is very deceiving. Content is way beyond me and I have a degree in Theology. I would not recommend it.
