Good book, but not for those weak of faith

This book was recently deemed unfit for use by undergraduate students by certain Bishops here in the USA. Sadly I agree with them, but not because it is a bad book, but because today's students are both weak of faith and of mind. This is the fault of our educational system and church leaders who have failed to educate.

This book attempts to reach out to those weak of faith but occasionally falls short of the fundamentals of faith. One fundamental area it is strong is the last chapter on the Trinity. If you are looking for a book that reenforces what you already know then this is not the book for you. However if you are open to new ways of viewing your relationship with God (even though you may not agree with them), then this is worth the investment.
