Best-selling and award-winning essayist Brian Doyle knows that the heartbeat of Catholicism is found not in papal decrees and pageantry, but in the parish halls, potluck dinners, and the believing community. In this spirited collection of more than 40 essays, Doyle employs his trademark wit, candor, and gusto for life and faith to reignite readersa€™ excitement for Catholicism as he plumbs some of the stickier and trickier elements of the Catholic character. From preparing for his first confession with a fake laundry list of sins to his young observations of President Kennedya€™s assassination, Doylea€™s passionate writing makes for a heartfelt, genuine, and often laugh-out-loud read. The Thorny Grace of It reaffirms that the Catholic faitha€”imperfect as it isa€”is wildly aflame in hearts and lives everywhere. a€œIt is a boon, a blessing, to have Brian Doylea€™s vagabond essays now rubbing elbows in a single, handy, and altogether delightful volume.q - Kenneth L.
