    1. What a wonderful book for those who love the scriptures and want to know how catholic beliefs are compatible with the bible. Answers about the pope, mary and why we believe what we do. As Catholics we believe we are on a journey to heavan, and have not arrived and need the sacraments to help get us there.


    2. As a Christian who doesn't know a lot about Catholic-specific doctrines and beliefs, this was an incredibly helpful book. Schreck does an excellent job of outlining "controversial" Catholic beliefs and explaining them without getting bogged down in the details. While I can't say I agreed with all the Catholic beliefs presented, it did give me a deeper appreciation for all that Protestants and Catholics share. We agree much more than disagree, and often just use different approaches, tones and vo [...]


    3. This book is alright - and probably best for people who are teaching RCIA (i.e people who are already Catholic) rather than people who are attending RCIA sessions (i.e people considering whether they want to become Catholic).I think perhaps my judgment of this book is skewed because of my opinion of the book I read prior to this (Why Do Catholics Do That?) that seems more accessible and understandable to the average layman.


    4. I have been having problems with my faith recently, but this book really helped. I realized that I fully support everything the church teaches. I'm so glad I read this.


    5. I have long wanted a good book that explained the Catholic position on beliefs that many Protestants find controversial, so I could make my own decision after hearing properly from both sides. [Tried asking locally but that didn't work out.] This book comes highly recommended. Schreck's book answered a number of my questions, but not all of them. I would like to have seen all the sacraments listed and discussed. Also the basis for the Queen of Heaven thing. Did not agree with all arguments, but [...]


    6. I have resolved to learn more about the Catholic faith which I profess to believe in and this book was a great place to start my education. As a convert from a Bible quoting denomination, this book was valuable in giving me the biblical background for the beliefs we hold. I am finding the truth and now I can't get enough of it. The answers lie in the teachings of the Catholic Church. The same church that Jesus founded. The same church that the apostles lead and their followers carried on. "To kn [...]


    7. Absolutely wonderful (and I'm not a real avid supporter of very much religious literature and writings on spirituality). Respectful of protestantism and faithful to Catholicism. Really enlightening for those coming from a protestant background.



    8. If you are wanting one book that just walks through an overview of Catholic beliefs, this is your book. It's a quick read in easy language.


    9. Really, really solid explanation of Catholic views on issues where there is debate with other Christian denominations. Not the usual aggressive or triumphal apologetic fare.


    10. This helped me understand the reason behind certain things. A great read for anyone that wants to know more unbiased info.


    11. If any non-Catholic wants to have their questions seriously addressed about the beliefs of the Catholic Church, this is an excellent place to start!


    12. This seems to be a 'companion' to the other book by the same author 'the catholic challenge'. Written with the same simplicity and clarity, but at the same time, presenting the challenge.



    13. I think that Alan's text is an extraordinarily insightful, informative, thorough, and rich set of chapters that fully validate the most commonly misunderstood practices of Catholics. If any Protestant desires fuller understanding about Catholic doctrines, history, beliefs, practices, or church designs, then he or she should absorb this book's contents. However, a nonbeliever or a non-Catholic Christian should heed the following caveat: beware thy beliefs which thou currently hold as true. You ma [...]


    14. Very informative book. I am Catholic, but found it difficult sometimes to explain the scriptural basis for some of my beliefs on the spot. I found out about Church history as well as solid scriptures which can help anyone understand the Catholic Church; and I have had my faith enriched by reading this book. The author has put together a very cohesive and easy-to-read and well-researched handbook on Catholicism.



    15. Well written book that overall gave a very balanced perspective of the Catholic faith. The book is not meant to be objective; however, my impression was the Catholic author worked hard to be fair when examining non-Catholic perspectives.With that said, I would say this is a fairly mediocre book overall. It covers the material in an approachable way, but that is about it. To really understand the topics discussed, I would recommend readers look through the Catholic Catechism. It is more of an "of [...]


    16. I was highly impressed by both the use of scripture and logic to explain some of the not easily understood Catholic beliefs. For example, the analysis of Mary's unique position in the Catholic faith was particularly thorough and well-expounded. This book should be required reading for all Catholics and is a great read for anyone interested in learning more about the Catholic faith. Fantastic!


    17. As a Protestant exploring the Catholic faith. this was a really great read. Unexciting prose, but the material is wonderful. Would highly recommend to others who know nothing about Catholicism and would like to.


    18. Wonderful guide to understanding key elements and differences between Catholic & Christian beliefs. Very easy read and good reference source.



    19. I have a deep faith and no religion. Fact is I want to understand various faiths and I found this book interesting and informative on the basics of the Catholic religion.
