I got this book for my husband who just converted to the Catholic faith this past Easter. He absolutely loved it. The chapters are short and easy to read and the information is easy to understand. He said it was such a help as it explained so many things is a simple way without getting too theological. He said some of the little things that we "cradle Catholics" take for granted were talked about. Things in the mass, organizations. traditions, prayers and the like. We have since ordered more copies for the next RCIA class at our parish in the hopes of helping them along. I would recommend this book for anyone who wants to know more about the "weird and scary" Catholic faith.
