This book by Rev. O'Grady is very instructional in the Roman Catholic faith with critical historical perspectives. Certainly if we all could read Hebrew/Greek/Aramaic it would behelpful to us all but lacking that this book places key concepts in context. This book was sent to my four sons for their reading years ago and recently to a friend who made a choice to join the RC church. I highly receommend this book and others by Rev.O'Grady for your education. Greg Karabin
