BOOK TRAILER ABOUT THE JOHN PAUL 2 HIGH BOOK SERIES.
We use Catholic, Reluctantly in our confirmation classes, and the young people really seem to like it, because it's more than just dry doctrine: it's an engaging story that holds their interest. Based on our teachers' evaluation of classroom use, I would recommend this series.

I especially enjoyed John Paul 2 High Book 4: Undercover Papist because of the debates between Protestant beliefs and Catholic beliefs. I would think of things that I would say if Protestants asked me about my beliefs. Well, in my homeschool group we have both Protestants and Catholics and my tutor is Protestant. One day she started talking about the differences between what Protestants believe and what Catholics believe, but she wasn't stating Catholic beliefs accurately. I remembered a lot of what was said in the John Paul 2 High books so I was able to use that to explain Catholic beliefs. It was neat how we could do that and still be friends.
