    1. This is a scholarly, yet very readable book about the influence of the Roman Catholic Church throughout history. Donahue discusses the four Cardinal Virtues of prudence, justice, fortitude, and temperance to explain the Church's positions on social and moral problems such as welfare and relativism. He quotes Plato, Aristotle, Aquinas, Augustine, Mother Teresa, Bishop Chaput, Pope John XXIII, Pope John Paul II, and many others to bolster his arguments that the Catholic Church is the single, most [...]

    2. Bill Donohue can be seen as excessively one-sided throughout this nonfiction book, forever championing Catholic history and doctrine. No matter the blemish or controversy, he either dismisses the criticism or softens its significance. Even so, I personally believe it often takes a passionate advocate to uncover buried truths, to clear away popular misconceptions. In this book, Donohue does indeed straighten mainstream distortions, but at other times, his spirited defense seems to produce its own [...]

    3. Bill Donohue's new book, Why Catholicism Matters, How Catholic Virtues can Reshape Society in the 21st Century, is a good read. Essentially this book is about how the four cardinal virtues of Prudence, Justice, Fortitude, and Temperance can help create "the good society" we would all like to live in. There are plenty of well documented historical examples of the application of each virtue for us to consider.This is not so much a book about religion as it is a request for America, and the rest of [...]

    4. I chose to do a book review on Why Catholicism Matters, because as a Catholic convert, I strive to live my life the right way and I believe that the Catholic Church is a good model for that. I long to learn new and interesting things about my faith.I really enjoyed learning more intimate details about the Church’s History. For instance, did you know if that Catholic Monks in Ireland hadn’t invited students all over Europe to come and learn from them -- essentially creating the model for Univ [...]

    5. This book is an attempt to explain why the Catholic Church is significant and what it has done to affect the world positively over the years. This is a small part at the beginning that is focused on the Catholic Church's contributions in the past, and then the rest of the book is entirely focused on how the Church's values could affect today if more people followed them.I wasn't entirely thrilled with this book. My biggest problem was that it was covering such a wide range of topics that each on [...]

    6. This is a very well-written book which highlights several contributions made by the Catholic Church to society, both historically and presently. Bill Donohue is no shrinking violet, but there is nothing strident in this book. He simply and clearly sets forth facts regarding the history of the Church over the last two millennia. The Introduction alone is worth the read and gives you a good overall perspective of many ways in which the Church has benefited the world.In current times, of course, th [...]

    7. "Why Catholicism Matters" discusses current cultural difficulties under the scope of the four cardinal virtues - prudence, justice, fortitude, and temperance. Just about every controversial criticism of the Catholic church is discussed. Under prudence, the author talks about the dangers of moral relativism and how it leads to a lack of human dignity. Under temperance he discusses the Church's moral teaching about sexuality and how our culture ignores temperance to its detriment.Donohue's argumen [...]

    8. Bill Donohue does a fantastic job of pointing out the effects of Catholicism on Western culture throughout the centuries. However, at times his assertions lack the force of strong logical argument and rely more on emotion and generalization. This book is a great book for someone who is already Catholic or at least understands many of the guiding principles of Catholicism but could be enhanced by a stronger explanation of the cardinal virtues it touts for the sake of non-catholics who might happe [...]

    9. This was a First Reads book. It is not a long book (for such a big topic) and it is very in depth and scholarly but it is also readable for the average person to understand all the points it makes. I liked the way it set out all the important points in sections rather than going on in a long discourse. As a life-long Catholic, still trying to learn what's behind everything I've always taken at face value, this was a good way to learn the history and reasoning behind believing what we believe.

    10. Considering the new Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage and some of Pope Francis's activity, this is slightly dated, but still offers great insight. I even learned a bit of Catholic history. Easy to read.

    11. I find this compelling and educational and to learn more you will have to wait for my Book Pick in the National Catholic Register.

    12. A bit of a dry read, but interesting to find out about all the good the Catholic Church has done in the world, that most people probably do not know about.

    13. Quite a reality check regarding the world without Catholicism. A clear case for the need of a virtue comeback.

    14. One of the best characteristics of Bill Donohue's books is that they are meticulously documented. If anyone can tell it like it is, it's Donohue.
