I am new here. I am doing some soul searching in my life right now and am trying to learn all I can about different faiths. There are so many questions I have, can anyone recommend a good book or website that will provide me with the basic Catholic belifs and values?

Hi Aislinn. This website is one place to start: http://www.aboutcatholics.com/ ” title=”Wink” />
What is your background? Do you have a particular faith right now? That will help with recommendations.May 1, 2007 at 2:23 pm #8162
I was raised in a Catholic family but never understood the religion and was never involved in the church. When I entered highschool I began attending a Foursquare Church and did so for the next few years. I have not attened church at all for the last eight years, I feel that I dont understand enough of all the different denominations to be make a wise choice.May 1, 2007 at 2:52 pm #8164
One book I really liked was [i:2ai9r4ub]Rome Sweet Home[/i:2ai9r4ub] by Scott Hahn. It’s a story of his journey to Catholicism and it keeps the reader interested. I read it in a couple days about 6 years ago and it has stuck with me since.
Perhaps other people on this board with similar experience as you will have recommendations.May 1, 2007 at 2:59 pm #8165
From what I have seen, aboutcatholics.com is not quite as intimidating to most when it comes to a place to ask questions and bounce things off of people.
Catholic Answers, by Karl Keating at [url:3salgwe5]http://www.catholic.com[/url:3salgwe5] is good for indepth answers. Karl and his crew are former fundimentalist Protestants who after study of the Bible and history have all come to the conclusion that the Catholic Church is the Church founded by Christ, and the one He promised not to abandon. When one reads accusations from Protestants that Catholics Worship Mary, or Pray to Idols, or “Added” books to the Bible, and want a balanced answer to the accusations it is a good source for information. When you simply want a place to ask questions and bounce ideas off of people or find resources you can come here and usually get good answers quickly.May 1, 2007 at 11:28 pm #8180
[color=darkblue:3t43a2yc]Welcome! My conversion began with snooping around the internet and finding this website. I also hear that “Rome Sweet Home” by Scott Hann is good by many people, yet I have not read it myself. I’ll have to go pick it up at the local Catholic bookstore now.[/color:3t43a2yc]May 2, 2007 at 4:51 pm #8210
