Quick Summary:
This is a Q&A apologetics book aimed at teens. It is based on "questions" from teens regarding various "issues" and "teachings" of the Catholic Church. The questions are somewhat elementary, but the author does a good job of really answering the question and giving good Biblical and Catechism references. Although it is aimed at teens, I think it is somewhat elementary and definitely better used as a perusal book than any sort of reference.

Q&A apologetics book.
Well, my low rating is because I while I had originally had it as a resource for teaching Sunday School (many years ago), I just read it... really so I could read it and give it back to church. (yeah). Anyway, it covers a wide range of topics with real questions from teenagers, and with good Catholic answers. I would say the way the author answers the questions are faithful to the Catholic Church, but he doesn't go toooo in depth with any of the answers. I just think some topics do need answers...more
This is a great starting book for anyone young or old to really understand the Catholic faith. The author took questions from teenagers about the church and answered them in ways that they would understand. A very concise and user friendly book to be used as a reference or read straight through. Either way it will be enjoyed.

So good if you struggle with your faith this book will answer all your questions
I cannot BELIEVE this book is on goodreads. A must-have for every coffee table, at least if you want to go to heaven or want to learn why you will be going to hell. I love you Corinne.
Loved using this as a gift for the teens preparing for confirmation. They would sit down and read it as soon as they got it; never heard a room of teens so quiet.

Recommends it for: teenagers wanting to start learning more about the Catholic faith
I learned how to better speak with teenagers about the Catholic faith, but I also learned that this is an excellent 1st Communion or Confirmation gift.

This book is a good family resource book. Answers some simple and not-so-simple questions in a concise, easy to understand format.
A good book for teens and adults to read. Some of the questions asked by these teens were quite good.
