- Is everything the pope says the gospel truth?
- Is Jesus sacrificed at every Mass?
- If I get a divorce, am I instantly excommunicated?
- As long as I go to Mass and confess serious sins, will I go to heaven?
- Is the rosary an obstacle to ecumenism?
- Does the Immaculate Conception mean Mary didn't need a Savior?

These and other questions arising from common misconceptions about what Catholics believe are addressed in What Catholics Really Believe. Karl Keating does an excellent job of clearly explaining Catholic practices that even devout Catholics can have a difficult time explaining to others.
The writing style is straight forward and easy to read. Answers are backed up with direct scriptural references -- and helpful hints and analogies are added to make difficult concepts easier to grasp.
Keating's common sense approach to apologetics makes this book an excellent source for anyone who is curious about "Why do Catholics...?" Both non-Catholics and ESPECIALLY practicing Catholics will find this book fascinating.
