Have you ever wondered exactly how the church stands on certain issues, like abortion, war, artificial insemination and the like -- and why? This book is GREAT! The Archbishop that wrote it went into wonderful detail and gave references to find more information concerning each subject, including the exact page of the Cathechism where each subject is discussed.
This is also great for a study-group, faith-sharing group or school (students and teachers) because of the simplicity of the language and there are questions after each subject explanation to help invoke conversation.
All Catholics should check this out, and non-Catholic who are interested in how the church stands on very tough issues.
