I wish I could give it 6 stars... A real review is coming soon.


It's like 3 (even 4!) books in one. If you love conversion stories, if you love Mary, if you love the TLM, you will probably love this book.

Some parts were very funny, some parts were deadly serious/intense.

You'll either love it or hate it. I've already started reading again.

I read it on my Kindle. The Kindle formatting was okay, footnotes were hyperlinked but no table of contents. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0971278652, Paperback)

In the words of Mr Biersach: "This little tome - or collection thereof-is intended as a word of encouragement for those Catholics who, against all odds, are attempting to hold on to their Faith for dear life, or perhaps trying to rediscover it in the midst of the rumbling chaos... "

And in the words of his good friend, Charles Coulombe: "Our fate . . . begins with our reply to that question asked of His disciples by Jesus Christ and continually referred to by Mr. Biersach in this book: "Who do you say that I am?" Mr. Biersach not only shows us in many ways how we must answer that question, but why we must. Moreover, he does so joyfully. The message he brings us is good news; there is a way out of this world of sin and shadows, and our eternity can be unparalleled bliss. That being so, Mr. Biersach bids us, as would his patron St. Phillip Neri, to begin the quest for Paradise with hope, with happiness, and with humor. Never, in this writer's admittedly short experience (a mere four decades), has his message been so timely and so needed."
