"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 youon anything. He doesn't shy away from explaining things clearly, butthere'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 onrecommending it to both seekers and those who are Catholic but want todo more than attend weekly Mass occasionally and shrug when asked toughquestions about Catholicism." -Anthony Baratta, Evangelical to Catholic
"My one regretwith this book is that it wasn't around when I was embarking on myjourney toward Catholicism. This is the perfect book for thoseconsidering becoming Catholic, already in an RCIA class, those lookingto 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."

Torgerson writes each of the easily-digested chapters like a blog post. They are short, but have the right amount of insights. What I like most is that he does more than give the references to the Catechism and the Scripture - he actually inserted the text so you can read it for yourself. I read the entire book the first time in about 4 hours (and I am not an exceptionally fast reader) then read it chapter by chapter in ten minute increments over a few days, and I find my faith fortified.
Whether you are a new convert, a cradle, or wondering what Catholics believe, I highly recommend this book. It gives you just enough information to be dangerous without being "preachy" and gives everyone a baseline review of apologetics.

Not only this, he explains everything simply and clearly in terms of the basic fundamentals of the catholic faith, discusses them and gives scripture as back up to his ideas.
The closing chapters become a little too preachy for me. However, he is one hundred percent correct.
He challenged my viewpoints and gave a much clearer idea about things I took for granted in the Catholic Church. I feel empowered and ready to take on the RCIA course again and to use my change of mindset to develop my own faith.
