"You feel, as you read it, as though you're having a conversation with a friend, one who's there to explain things and not necessarily sell you on anything. He doesn't shy away from explaining things clearly, but there's no 'you have to believe this' sledgehammer." -Sarah Reinhard, Snoring Scholar
"Similar to Matthew Kelley's Rediscovering Catholicism, I've already recommended this book to one friend and plan on recommending it to both seekers and those who are Catholic but want to do more than attend weekly Mass occasionally and shrug when asked tough questions about Catholicism." -Anthony Baratta, Evangelical to Catholic
"My one regret with this book is that it wasn't around when I was embarking on my journey toward Catholicism. This is the perfect book for those considering becoming Catholic, already in an RCIA class, those looking to come back to the Church, or just someone who wants to understand what they believe better." -Stuart Dunn, Stuart's Study
"Torgerson weaves an account of his search for a faith that matters into discussions of Catholic beliefs... Despite saying that he wants to pull at your heart strings, Torgerson focuses on what being Catholic means: not sentimental excursions." -Brian Gill, A Catholic Citizen in America
From the Author
"Theology is a matter of the mind, but faith is a matter of the heart. With that in mind, my goal is to teach the basics of the faith in a way that is easy to understand - yet still pulls at your heart strings. Your mind will grasp the information, and your heart will thirst for more. By blending my own personal struggles during my faith journey with the basics of Catholic theology, I hope that you will build the foundation that you need to grow and mature in faith."
