From a Director of Religious Education in a Catholic parish in South on Amy's Here. Now. A Catholic Guide to the Good Life.:
Just before you began the month-of-push I finished Here. Now. and decided to give it to my incoming RCIA candidates to read over our end of summer break. This is a tremendously helpful (and clear) book Amy has written, and I could foresee us using it again and again with various groups.From a Women's Study Group leader on The How-To Book of the Mass: Everything You Need to Know but No One Ever Taught You :
A small group of women at my church have formed a summer book club and we are about to tackle your “How-to Book of the Mass” . . ,
. . . I thoroughly enjoyed it and feel like I am working on a whole new set of prayer muscles that I’ve never exercised before. From the moment you suggested singing all of the hymns – even the ones we don’t like – I figured “Okay if I don’t anything else out of this book, I’ve learned enough.” So now I’m out of critic mode and into praising and singing.
From a buyer in the Midwest of both books:
I recently purchased both books. How To Get The Most Out Of The Eucharist was obtained to review it for addition to our parish library. I haven't been able to give up my copy, either to share or place on the library table. I had mistakenly thought it might be helpful to those "other people" who need "books like that"!I'm asking the readers of this blog and Amy's Open Book to consider buying one copy of her excellent book Here. Now. A Catholic Guide to the Good Life.and of my How To Get The Most Out Of The Eucharist--two books that have helped others find true joy by deepening their relationship with God as Catholics.
At the end of the thirty-day period Amy and I will donate whatever royalties we earn from the sales of these books to Food for the Poor.
