Recent Reads: Catholic and Confident

Catholic and Confident is 95 pages of entertaining and thought-provoking discussion on why we should stop being "couch potato Catholics" and get out there to share our faith.  It's written for people like me, who want to share their faith, but don't always feel comfortable doing so.  The author has heard all of our excuses, from offending people, to not having Scripture memorized, and he points out that none of those are good reasons... we are still called to share our faith. 

Each chapter ends with reflection questions.  Unlike many books I've read, these questions were actually useful, and I found myself thinking about them before I moved on to the next chapter. 

I really enjoyed this book- so much so that I stayed up late and finished the whole thing in one evening.  It's a short book, and I have a feeling it's one I'll want to re-read in the future.   I finished the book with a feeling that I'd just been challenged, and I like that challenge.  It seems especially timely given that Pope Benedict has designated 2013 as the Year of Faith.

Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for posting my honest review as part of the Catholic book reviewer program from The Catholic Company.
