The most any of us can do--and ever be expected to do--is our best. But when it comes to commitment to our faith, should we demand something more of ourselves? The concept of being "good enough" in our dedication to God fascinates Paul Wilkes, one of America's leading authorities and writers on religious belief, and a practicing Catholic himself. In The Good Enough Catholic, Wilkes addresses the basic dilemma of how Catholics can at once be faithful to their traditions, drawing upon the wellspring of Catholic teaching, spirituality, and practice, yet still remain open to new discoveries, both about themselves and Catholicism itself. 10544, 13407.
