We've carried author Matt Pinto's best-selling young adult series Did Adam & Eve Have Belly Buttons? for years. And we're happy to have another of his books to offer.
This time Matt has teamed up with another dynamic Catholic, Chris Stefanick (who, as he was reviewing this book for me, my son excitedly recognized as a Franciscan University alum) for this rich read for teens. Chris is the director of youth, young adult and campus ministry for the Archdiocese of Denver. What better position to be in to witness the concerns, questions and doubts of Catholic teens?
In Do I Have To Go? (101 Questions about the Mass, the Eucharist and Your Spiritual Life), these authors use wit, clarity and common sense to answer challenging questions posed by today's Catholic youth. They acknowledge that as youth, they too had questions as they grew in their faith and that one reason they wrote this book was "to pass on some of what we have learned so you may get there faster than we did."
The Q & A format means the reader can take it a question at a time, or go to a section that holds particular interest at the moment. However they approach it, this book will benefit every Catholic teen. Because when they understand that the Mass is literally the meeting place between heaven and earth, our Catholic young adults will have a newfound sense of awe and deeper understanding of their Catholic faith. Paperback, 150 pages, 5 1/2" x 8 1/2".
