"John LaBarbara has written an excellent book on apologetics that can be a great instrument to bring people to conversion and others to go deeper in their practice of the Catholic faith."

"LaBarbara slowly unfolds the richness and reasonableness of Catholic faith in ways that are accessible and informative. More books like this are needed by the Church today."

"John LaBarbara has written a clear, simple (in the best sense) and compelling book, vivid in style and rich in content, that explains what Catholics believe... As Jesus himself said, the truth will make us free; and this text is a great tool in that task of Christian freedom."

Opened my eyes to the faith
As a "cradle Catholic" I thought I knew my faith. This book enlightened me to many of the basic beliefs and teachings, which were previously misunderstood or unknown to me. My husband and I have shared this book with several friends and family members, and have received positive feedback from all. Thank you Mr. LaBarbara, for your thoughtful, straight-forward presentation.

Last year at this time, I was attending John LaBarbara's class on apologetics through the Denver Catholic Biblical School. Unfortunately, there is much confusion and misunderstanding about what the Catholic Church teaches. John's book presents the fundamental beliefs of the Church in a clear, easy to understand format. I learned much about the Church's stand on work, politics, charitable giving, etc. But best of all, I was reminded that God wants to have an intimate relationship of love and friendship with each one of us. 10/22/16

This book does an amazing job of synthesizing so much of the Catholic faith and then making it practical (not to say easy, because it is very challenging) for how the Catholic faith is meant to be lived. It is not something to just be believed, but the belief is meant to actually impact the way you see the work and how you live your life. As the sages say, to know and not to do, is really not to know. I think any, in fact I think EVERY Catholic should read this book, they will all learn something new.
