Format: Paperback
I read this book 3 times. The first 2 times I read it too quickly to fully appreciate it. So the third time, I took my time and compared what I was reading to my honest experience... not as someone bought into a Catholic idealogy, but someone open to his experience... Now, I want everyone I meet to read this book. If you take your time, and not read it already claiming which side you are on, the book can take you on a wrenching spirtual journey... 1 that you'll be glad to take. In fact, it makes you happier to be a human.... If you read this book, spend time with it, otherwise the points seem too intellectual, when really it is about the experience of the whole person. Good luck.

Format: Paperback
Overwhelmingly natural, I'd call this book. You get pleasantly surprised at the description of yourself in such a relieving (really liberating) way. That is a mighty surprise in these days! And, however, since it does describe you, it's... wholly natural, as if somehow you've always had known it. Well, but could it be any other way?
Exploring a "religious sense" in us, such as our olfactory, visual or auditive sense, it starts by making methodological clarifications, concerning realism, reason, and the pertinence of morality in the use of reason. And then it plunges into you.
For these reasons, it's something to be read by any kind of folks: whether religious or not, christian, jew, muslim, agnostic, whatever! I've known people of all of these beliefs who've read it and loved it.
Magnificent!

"The Religious Sense" provides clear food for thought. Perhaps a little too theoretical and dry at times, but lucid in its arguement. This should be read with the recently published and truly inspiring "The Autobiography of Jesus of Nazareth and the Missing Years" by Richard G. Patton. Luigi Giussani provides food for the Mind, Patton supplies food for the Soul. We are doubly blessed by having such writers at this time.

Format: Paperback
In this book Giussani goes to the core of the question "What does it mean to be human?" better than does anyone else I've read or heard. He shows us how to live in a way that corresponds to our true needs for beauty, truth, happiness and justice..., and not according to the ideals of the common mentality.

Reason is the power that allows us to know reality in all of its aspects. The event of God's incarnation is the biggest challenge for the human reason. This book helps me to keep open my reason.

THE RELIGIOUS SENSE is a profound book that speaks to the particular situation of modern man. Not only does it incisively diagnose the problem of modernity (as misunderstood freedom and rationality), but it offers a ray of true hope rooted in the fulfillment of our deepest destiny. For the confused Catholic who wonders, Why the Church?, or for the genuine seeker of the real meaning of life (beyond what the culture dictates to us), this book serves as an intelligent and trustworthy guide. But beware!--it just might change your life.
