Asking questions does not mean you are questioning your faith, you are simply seeking answers so your faith can grow. That’s the premise behind Rev. Kenn Garrity’s latest book.
I’m a Why’s Book Two – More Pew Ponderings and Perplexities by Rev. Kenn Garrity offers fewer questions than his first book, The Why’s Book – Pew Ponderings and Perplexities, but nevertheless answers some very poignant questions.
All of the queries in the book come from his parishioners, and include questions like, How can religious people justify mass killings in the name of their faith? What proof is there for a life after death? Does the wider church have a unified stance on euthanasia?
There’s something else this book has that the first one does not: evaluations from lay people, giving it a more personal perspective which the reader can challenge.
This book epitomizes the desire to further explore one’s faith by taking a step back to see where one’s faith has been, where it is now and where it is going.
I recommend reading Garrity’s newest book and, if you haven’t already, his first book in this series as well.
Readers are likely to have their own questions by the time they have finished both books.
I’m a Why’s Book Two – More Pew Ponderings and Perplexities is available at McNally Booksellers ($19.95) or by contacting Rev. Garrity at PO Box 54073 Silver Heights PO, Winnipeg, MB., R3J 0L5 for $25.
