I've been asked to help teach a confirmation class at church, and I couldn't think of any valid reason to say no. One of the other catechists suggested I read this book so that I know what they are teaching the catechumens. It's a short enough and easy enough read that I knew I could knock it off in a few hours. Thus, I read it during commercials and other pauses in play during today's football games.

Anyway, since the other two books I'm reading are both quite long, this allows me to pad my list a bit with an easy quick read.

The book is nothing special. It is what it is, a good aid to catechism for young people. It teaches most of the important points a catechumen needs to know in an accessible manner and one that might hopefully get a young mind thinking about how all these things we do and say and believe in as part of the Catholic faith applies to everyday life around us. It does a commendable job of referring the reader to Scripture and the Missal to help him or her understand the traditions associated with our faith.

Email me your postal address some time, I'll send you Jayber Crow since you mentioned a while back not being able to find it.

Thank you, really, but… I appreciate the thought and would enjoy reading Jayber Crow quite a bit, but I know you don't have much more money than I do and overseas shipping is expensive.
