Book Review: Staying Faithful Today

I think I have yet to read anything written by Fr. Alfred McBride that I didn't enjoy immensely.  This is certainly true of his book Staying Faithful Today.  In this book, Fr. McBride examines why we need fidelity, and how we already have it from God.

This book beautifully presents and explains the many facets of our lives, whether we're single, married, or living as clergy or religious.  No matter what your station in life, there's certainly a need for fidelity.  Over the course of seven chapters readers will discover what fidelity looks like, they will see how God is faithful to us, and come to an understanding as to why fidelity is so important to essentially every aspect of our lives.

The entire book is insightfully written and keeps you turning pages.  The book is suitable for reading in a group setting or on your own.  At the end of every chapter there are questions for personal application, questions for use in a group setting, a scripture meditation and a blank page where you can record your own promises for ways in which you can be faithful to or supportive of those examined in each individual chapter.

This book was an enjoyable and informative read.  It's certainly worth reading.

I was provided with a review copy of this book by the publisher, St. Anthony Messenger Press, in exchange for my honest review.
