Why be Catholic? by William J O'Malley( Book )

5 editions published between 1993 and 1999 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book asks:Is the question of being Roman Catholic the same as the question of how you like your roast beef cooked, or the same as the question of your being of some ethnic group, or the same as the question of your being Democrat or Republician?

God : the oldest question : a fresh look at belief and unbelief and why the choice matters by William J O'Malley( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Does God exist? Is belief reasonable? Do the answers to these questions make any practical difference in the way we live? These questions - asked by religious seekers for countless millennia - can be answered in the affirmative, says William O'Malley, Jesuit priest and prolific popular writer. In God - The Oldest Question, O'Malley shows readers why with a careful argument that combines irreverent wit, high intellectual seriousness, and personal confession." "O'Malley ranges widely through modern science, classical philosophy, literature and art, and the religious traditions of East and West. Yet he also probes his own heart. In part, God - The Oldest Question is an account of O'Malley's own intellectual and spiritual journey, which included a shattering crisis of faith only a year before he was to be ordained a priest - a crisis that a careful study of the arguments of atheist thinkers helped him later resolve. This painfully honest and intellectually inspiring book enlists both the mind and the heart in an ultimately satisfying quest for God."--Jacket

"The perfect book for those who are seeking to learn more about the Catholic faith through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults and for those who may have become disenchanted with the Church or perhaps even with God over the years.
