The Being Real Series

For many teenagers it's not cool to show interest in organized religion. They often believe that religion is something that is not quite real—at least, not as real as everyday experiences like family, friends, foes, school, parties, love, hate, anger, desire, and frustration. The Being Real series shows how Catholicism recognizes the realities of teenage life and calls teens to a higher ideal.

The author presents the Church as the continuing visible presence of Christ, who was the most real of people and was the pattern and power for all "being real." He shows that Christ challenges Catholic teens today, as he once challenged his Apostles in Galilee, to become more real.
