Letters to a Young Catholic

By (author) George Weigel

In this remarkable exploration of the Catholic world, the preeminent Catholic theologian George Weigel offers a luminous collection of letters to young Catholics, not-so-young Catholics, and curious souls who wonder what it means to be a Catholic today. Weigel takes readers on an epistolary tour of Catholic landmarks—from Chartres Cathedral to St. Mary's Church in Greenville, South Carolina; from the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem to G.K. Chesterton's favorite pub in Oxford; and from the grave of a modern martyr in Warsaw to the Sistine Chapel. Weaving together insights from history, literature, theology, and music, Weigel illuminates the beliefs that have shaped Catholicism from its birth. Revised and updated with several new essays, Letters to a Young Catholic will inspire not only the young generation of Catholics, but also the faithful, doubtful, and searchers of every age.
George Weigel is a New York Times bestselling author and one of the world's leading authorities on the Catholic Church. Weigel is a distinguished senior fellow of Washington's Ethics and Public Policy Center and lives in North Bethesda, Maryland.
