Product DescriptionIn Choosing to be Catholic Fr. William O'Malley asks readers to ask new questions and look in a new way at being a member of the Catholic Church today. With all the turmoil in the Catholic Church today, the author asks the reader to look at the Church as an ideal being strived for under the guidance of fallible humans. As he says "But if you are ready to wade through a considerable amount of muck to discover the beauty of the Gospel revealed in the life and teachings of the Catholic Church - read on". O'Malley starts with trying to come to an understanding of some basics like faith, soul, pride, conscience and then moves on to how they fit into a relationship with God and how they are presented by the Catholic Church. Choosing to be Catholic starts with the topic "Uncertainty: The Meaning of Faith" and, after talking about world religions, scripture, the sacraments and other topics, ends with a chapter on "Praying". If you are looking for reasons to stay in, join or come back to the Catholic Chursh, Fr. William O'Malley gives you a new perspective on looking at the Church that may encourage you to participate or continue to participate as a member.
