    1. I feel like this book is a very dry read. Unless you're super interested into religion etc. you won't be able to finish this book. I struggled through it. There were many biblical references I could not understand. *Won from Giveaway*

    2. Received the book for free through First ReadsI really went into this with an open mind. I am not catholic, but boy did this really put me off.

    3. I really enjoyed reading it. I believe we are already seeing the fruit of Pope John Paul II's effort in looking closely at each vocation. This book in particular grew my respect for the bishops and all their vocation entails. Definitely worth the read.
