"An extraordinary book!" "I have been a priest for 50 years and I don't know a book that has revitalized the faith of more people..or brought more people back to the Church than Rediscover Catholicism, FATHER RON RIEDER.
This was distributed at our Parish by the Knights of Columbus during Holy Week. A good reference for reverts back to the faith and also for "Catholics come Home". A good read for all practicing Catholics!
I haven't read this particular book by Kelly, but have heard fairly good things about it. Over Lent we met and used his The Four Signs of a Dynamic Catholic. At first I was very pleased with this book, and excited about what he was discussing and covering, but somewhere midway it sort of broke down and in the end sort of left me feeling flat. Several others in the group dropped out sooner. A couple who found the book not helpful at all.
I don't know enough about Kelly or his work to be able to comment more fully. But, I would agree that the breakdown for me, was around what i felt was an area where he sort of dropped the ball in regard to explaining some things . ..as he spoke about them, he really should have had some better background and synthesis.
Writing for a general public is difficult and sometimes salient points gets washed over or ignored. So it is important to sort of keep that in mind when reading books like this. And, always be ready to look up more information elsewhere on topics, especially if something doesn't see quite right.
