This review is from: The Year of Faith: A Bible Study Guide for Catholics (Paperback)
even though the book was touted to be easily studied by a group or alone. i felt that the format tended toward the study group. which would have needed to be led by someone with several degrees and the ability to speak several languages such as fr. pacwa as it was quite esoteric.

Kathy, I am not sure how young you are but you impression of the book seems highly skewed. I found it to be as simple as a 5th grade reader. There are no language barriers, but it is not a newspaper either so you might have to read a little slower than you normally do, after all it is the word of God we are talking about and deserves all your attentions. Did you try to complete the first exercise and answer the questions or were you immediately intimidated by the question and answer format. If you have trouble perhaps you can email Father Mitch at Threshold of Hope and he can help you or respond here and I will try to help you.

My remarks are a direct response to the original poster. Her take on the book is skewed, I merely tried to un-skew it and offer her help. The book is in no way esoteric and it is simply written for any 5th grader with a good reading level. It is highly comprehensible, but it does involve full engagement and consideration of the subject. GOD!!!!
