This book helped me through the Catholic Seminary transition of formation after being in the Canadian Forces for three years.
If you've been in the Military and want to make spiritual sense of boot camp read this book!
If you've never been in the Military this book reveals some insights of the dedication and courage of people in the Armed Forces.
Thanks Chuck for sharing your adventure with our Lord Jesus Christ. God bless your ministry.
There are three reasons why you need to read the "Ratzinger Report":
1. If you want to know the state of the Catholic Church from it's top "German Shepherd" whose voaction consisted of keeping the Catholicity of the faith: read this book!
2. If you don't want to know the state of the Catholic Church, well, that's your problem: read this book!
3. If you haven't heard before,
the whole problem of the Catholic Church,
is that we are all part of it,
and if we are all part of the whole problem,
that means we are also part of the whole solution
therefore: read this book!

I gave this one star because it is the one and only book of conversion stories that moved me to become one true Catholic after many years of taking my faith for granted.
There are many books about protestant conversions but this is one of the best. From one story to another, the 11 converts in this book present a biblical and commonsensical explanation of why many are converting or reconverting back or into the Catholic Church.
There are many ways to praise this book, but there is only one way to find out for yourself: buy it, read it, share it, and live it!
