And excellent reading. To those of you who are perhaps fallen away Catholics or considering conversion to Catholicism, there's an excellent book out there published by Catholic Answers of San Diego called "Home at Last". It's very readable and quite inspiring, chronicling as it does 11 stories of people who have found their way into the Catholic Church from positions of agnosticism, atheism, as well as various Protestant denominations.
If, like me, you struggle with defining and explaining your beliefs, this book is an excellent tool. And no, in interests of full disclosure, nobody is paying me anything to recommend this excellent book.
In addition, I am now reading "Sizzling Sixteen" by Janet Evanovich, part of her Stephanie Plum series set in Trenton, New Jersey (Evanovich was, to my knowledge, the first author to make the state of New Jersey cool!). This series of books (which really should be read starting with "One for the Money") is entertaining and funny as can be. In these times, laughter should be a necessary component of everyone's life, along with faith in God!
