By Mike Haigerty

I love your "Catholic Faith Handbook for Youth!" I am a DRE in central Indiana. I use this book not only for teens, but for adults, too (Maybe you could publish a version w/o "for youth" in the title?). Its explanation of the Faith is excellent, in conformity w/CCC, and in a very conversational, approachable style. Love the sidebars, important terms in bold print, glossary, etc. I have used for Sunday school for junior high, as part of Confirmation prep - a great review - and also give this to RCIA candidates because it's an easier way in to Catholicism than the "big, green, book." Like a durable, stylish, loveable model of a car -say a Jeep or VW Beetle - keep making it and keep making it better! It is a gift to the Church.
