The Bad Catholic's Guide to the Catechism

The Bad Catholic's Guide to the Catechism

A Faithful, Fun-Loving Look at Catholic Dogmas, Doctrines, and Schmoctrines

Organized like the old-fashioned question-and-answer catechisms that generations of Catholic school kids in plaid skirts or clip-on ties had to memorize, this hilarious handbook offers a solid introduction to core Catholic teachings on divine revelation, the Trinity, the Church, the Sacraments, and the Christian life. With commentary directly tied to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, it wrestles with thorny objections from relativist, New Atheist, dissenting Catholic, and other points of view—and even answers “FAQs from Your Stoner Neighbor.”  Penned by a bestselling Catholic apologist, The Bad Catholic’s “Catechism” uses both a rapier wit and the strong left hook of a blue-collar kid from Queens, as the author shows the truth and beauty of his faith, while taking seriously the difficulties modern believers face.

“A polymath who is at the same time gloriously funny and massively serious . . . thoroughly orthodox and sane. The author capers through the entirety of Catholic doctrine, hagiology, literature, history, and contemporary culture. The reader will be instructed, blessed, and exhilarated.”—Thomas Howard, author, Evangelical Is Not Enough
