A popular presentation of the Catholic faith that aims to enliven and re-ignite 21st century believers.
A book for Catholic adults who wonder if their faith still has anything dynamic to say. It brings them up to date on new Catholic understandings of God, the Bible, ourselves, our origins, and our future. It includes insights from non-Catholics such as Darwin, Einstein, Jung, Bohr, Bultmann, Hubble, Rudolf Otto, William James, the Leakeys—and even atheists such as Christopher Hitchens and Richard Dawkins. The result is an eye-opening look at Catholic truths that will make the reader exclaim, “Wow! I never thought of it that way!”
Fr. O'Malley says traditional things in new ways, and new things that readers haven't yet thought about. Topics include The Everywhere God, Jesus for Adults, Forgiveness of Sins, and The Least Leaky Boat. The Wow Factor is alive with the enthusiasm of faith.
