    2. Upon finishing John Smirak s The Bad Catholic s Guide to the Seven Deadly Sins, my first thought was how rarely I am engaged in a conversation that turns on the ultimate consequences of the choices we make, as we make our way through life It appears that if anything registers as a sin, it s self denial, and if there s currency to the concept of virtue, it s found in self expression.I can say categorically that among those I know best there is absolutely no notion of an eschatological endgame Dea [...]


    3. Having read the author s previous books The Bad Catholic s Guide to Good Living A Loving Look at the Lighter Side of the Catholic Faith, with Recipes for Feasts and Fun by John Zmirak and Denise Matychowiak, and The Bad Catholic s Guide to Wine, Whiskey, Song A Spirited Look at Catholic Life Lore from the Apocalypse to Zinfandel by John Zmirak and Denise Matychowiak , I knew what I was in for with this non fiction book a very funny, very Catholic, and very irreverent while being reverent book In [...]

    6. This book is well written, intellectually stimulating yet humorous, and accurate My priest used this book for our Lenten Bible study You can read it but you probably won t agree with everything even if you are a non believer Some thought provoking ideas I plan to share this with my daughter and other family members.


    7. So far so good It s a light read considering the topic As the author warns Done poorly, it could read like the lives of the saints, minus the fun stuff like bleeding relics and talking bears So onward I go
