Synopsis from Goodreads:
Are you a member of the Lost Generation!? Do you still feel in a bit of a fog over your Catholic upbringing and education? Finally, here's the opportunity to connect the dots and tap into the true joys of the Faith! Written in a warm, friend-to-friend style, from a fellow "lost generation" author, Catholicism: Now I Get It! is a refreshing guide for rediscovering the doctrine, truths, and deep satisfaction that never quite clicked. With childhood memories of her own religious education, the author relates to readers with wit, humor, and loads of encouragement to start their own journey. Enhanced by simple explanations of key concepts, enlightened discussions of common misperceptions, and thought-provoking ideas for spiritual growth, Catholicism: Now I Get It! helps readers clear the fog and bring Faith into daily life. Catholicism: Now I Get It! empowers readers with: The highlights of historical origins, beliefs, and traditions of the Catholic Church The truth behind the sacraments The "A Ha" explanations of the "whys" behind Church Tradition Unwavering encouragement to get -- and stay -- focused on living out the Faith Sometimes amusing, sometimes poignant, Catholicism: Now I Get It! gives readers the spark they need to begin their own unique journey. Re-capture the fullness of your Catholic Faith. Discover what you've been missing today!


This book is written for college age (or so) young adults who find themselves with questions about their faith once they're on their own. This book lays out various Catholic beliefs with an emphasis on those that are most commonly challenged by members of other Christian denominations.

I think this book did what it set out to do really well. Not only that, but the style it was written in made it easy to read without zoning out or losing interest. I would definitely recommend this book if it is the sort of thing you're looking for.
