The Bad Catholic's Guide to the Catechism:

The Bad Catholic's Guide to the Catechism: A Faithful, Fun-Loving Look at Catholic Dogmas, Doctrines, and Schmoctrines By: John Zmirak
Fiction: Religion, Humor 272 pages
Book Count: 16

This book is part of the Bad Catholic's series which we have already reviewed the one on holidays and the one on booze.  This one is a little less humor and more on the actually beliefs. (There is a sidebar of "questions from your stoner neighbor" and the humor within the main writing its self, but as it is dealing with such heady and complex subjects there is less joking around.) As such I did not enjoy it as much as the others, as the thing that I like about the whole series is the way it is a funny book that also sneaks in some interesting things that you might not know about the faith.  But it was a good intro to how a catechism works and some of the things in it, which is a book that can be daunting to anyone that isn't an expert on religion, so it is a very good book for that.
