Sale Price $12.99!



Are you new to Catholicism and become a recent Catholic convert? Did you grow up Catholic and return as a Catholic revert? Are you interested in becoming Catholic for the first time?

If you want to learn more about basic Catholic beliefs, Waking Up Catholic: A Guide to Catholic Beliefs for Converts, Reverts, and Anyone Becoming Catholic is the book for you.

The depth of Catholic theology is one of its greatest beauties, but understanding it can be one of its greatest challenges.

You have questions. Waking Up Catholic has answers. Learn about:

  • How does Catholic Tradition fit in with Scripture?
  • Why do we have a pope?
  • Do Catholics really worship Mary?
  • Why do Catholics pray to saints?
  • Is Holy Communion just a symbol of Christ?
  • What is the purpose of Confession?
  • Do repetitious Catholic prayers really work?
  • And more...

Waking Up Catholic answers these questions, and more, from the perspective of someone who converted to Catholicism himself.

Waking Up Catholic may be the first Catholic book you've ever read, but after you're done, it won't be the last.

Review Quotes:

"Torgerson weaves an account of his search for a faith that matters into discussions of Catholic beliefs...Despite saying that he wants to pull at your heart strings, Torgerson focuses on what being Catholic means: not sentimental excursions." -- Brian H. Gill "Blogger at A Catholic Citizen in America"


"You feel, as you read it, as though you're having a conversation with a friend, one who's there to explain things and not necessarily sell you on anything. He doesn't shy away from explaining things clearly, but there's no 'you have to believe this' sledgehammer." -- Sarah Reinhard "Blogger at Snoring Scholar"


"It's easy to read, but that doesn't mean that the truths of our Faith have been dumbed down. My one regret with this book is that it wasn't around when I was embarking on my journey toward Catholicism. This is the perfect book for those considering becoming Catholic, already in an RCIA class, those looking to come back to the Church..." -- Stuart Dunn "Blogger at Stuart's Study"
