The Religion of the Plain Man is a theological outline of the teachings Catholic Church told through the story of a man named John, who travels from disbelief to Anglicanism to Catholicism. Through his research and questioning of ministers and theologians of various denominations, Benson helps show the faults and shortcomings of Protestantism and the truths of the Catholic Church. It makes theology easy to understand and is highly readable. Anyone with an interest in Catholicism would benefit from reading it. ( )

First words
It would appear a ludicrous undertaking to attempt to deal with the Catholic Church in six lectures, when we consider the volumes that have been written, the theological learning poured out, the libraries that yet remain to be composed on this enormous fact.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0911845852, Hardcover)

The Religion of the Plain Man is essentially a kind of pocket sized apologetics. With a convert's understanding Msgr. Benson proceeds to trace the sincere inquiries of an imaginary non-Catholic as he probes the present-day forests of beliefs in search of the Tree of Life-the One True Church. Through generous reference to Sacred Scripture, Msgr. Benson sets forth the claims of the Roman Catholic Faith-from forgiveness of sins to the authority of the Pope. Ideal gift for non-Catholics too!
