Still Catholic After All These Fears
In his Apologetics class at Monsignor Bonner High School, Ed Stivender, designated clown, crossed Father McGinnis once too often. His punishment: a debate whose topic was The Existence of God. His assignment: the argument against it. What's a good Catholic to do when a task sets the two great directives of his upbringing to affirm his faith, and to perform well in the classroom in opposition? Young Edward's solution would foretell his future as a performing storyteller who recalls with affection the challenges of growing up Catholic. In a cycle of twelve autobiographical stories, Stivender details with wit, humor, and precision a faith journey through the obstacles change imposes."
