What Do You Want to Know?: A Pastor's Response to the Most Challenging Questions about the Catholic Faith
Ave Maria Press, Nov 30, 2018 - 160 pages
You've probably heard statements such as these: "There is no God." "I'm spiritual but not religious." "Science has made religion obsolete." Cardinal Donald Wuerl can help you navigate these often difficult conversations. In What Do You Want to Know?, Wuerl addresses twenty-six of today's most common misconceptions of the faith and the Church and offers everyday Catholics encouragement for framing responses in a way that can be an invitation to friendship.Many Catholics are confronted with statements and questions that challenge their faith. Employing a conversational tone andfriendly style, What Do You Want to Know? sets out to answer each one, responding, as Wuerl says, "to friends who think theyare enemies." A work of popular apologetics, Wuerl tackles each concern, explaining, illuminating, and challenging all who read What Do You Want to Know? with the truth of the Christian faith and the essential purpose of the Catholic Church in the world today. He also takes the pressure off people who may not feel able to provide philosophical proof of God's existence by telling them that their personal experience of faith in God can be just as (or perhaps even more) effective.Those who pose challenging questions or statements will be drawn into conversation by Wuerl's thoughtful answers. Catholiceducators, pastors, parish leaders, and parents also will find the book to be essential for their use in catechesis and evangelization.

If there were a negative star choice, I would have chosen that. Cardinal Wuerl has been discredited because of his participation in covering up for priests involved in immoral activities. The book will probably never be published.
