Today we review The Catholic Hipster Handbook by Tommy Tighe.
This book was published by Ave Maria Press. It promises and delivers a journey that rediscovers Cool Saints … Forgotten Prayers … and Other Weird but Sacred Stuff.
Tommy defines the Catholic Church as “a 2000 year old … counter-culture community of believers … who know about being hip!”
If that were all you got from this book, it would be enough to encourage at least a few fallen away Catholics to come back home. But there’s more!
The Catholic Hipster is an easy read. It’s organized into four parts including … getting your Catholic attitude back … finding good stuff in the old faith … rediscovering real Catholic life … and rekindling the attraction to the Church.
Each chapter introduces a cool, but unfamiliar saint … a forgotten prayer … and an ACTIVITY that immediately makes you Catholic hip.
If you think being Catholic is cool, get this book. Even if you don’t think Catholic is cool, but secretly wish it were … go get this book.
The Catholic Hipster is fun to read. Happy reading!
