Published by Ave Maria Press

First published in 2001, "Choosing to Be Catholic" has sold nearly 25,000 copies and maintains its status as a Catholic parish favorite. In this revised edition, Jesuit priest, master-teacher, and bestselling author William J. O’Malley, S.J., prompts seekers and skeptics alike to ask a new set of questions as they hunger and search for God. He demonstrates once again his uncanny ability to approach the human quest for God with refreshingly frank discourse as he sorts out the Hows, Whys, and So whats of being Catholic. With razor sharp focus, O’Malley offers a cultured and deeply personal argument for Catholicism to those curious about joining the Church, those wondering if they should stay, and those “vacationing” from it.

Ideal Uses for "Choosing to Be Catholic":

* RCIA

* Gift for spiritual seekers

* Faith-sharing groups

“William O’Malley, S.J., has been a leader in Catholic secondary and higher education, Christian spiritual writing and speaking, and fundamental faith formation in this country for the last for-ty years. He is a Jesuit priest who cannot write an uninteresting sentence, and who never fails to inspire.”
Rev. James Martin, S.J.

“Because we have to ask many questions about being Catholic today, no one is better prepared to give us intelligent, honest,
and faith-lled answers than O’Malley. Just when you think
you have considered every perspective, O’Malley will give you another one—and it will be well worth considering!”
Rev. Richard Rohr, O.F.M.

“I have long respected O’Malley’s work and nd his clear, con
-
cise, and direct manner truly benecial for pastoral leaders and
those we serve.
Choosing to Be Catholic
 is perfect for so many who seek deeper understanding of our faith.”
Leisa Anslinger

“If you are a spiritual seeker, this book is for you. An experi-enced teacher and writer, O’Malley deftly guides the reader on a journey that tackles key issues of modern belief, such as the nature of the soul, the existence of God, and the value of reli-gion. Because it is a journey that challenges us to rethink our deepest values, it is one well worth taking.”
