One day, philosopher Peter Kreeft reads an open letter published by a friend, Nat Whilk. He’s Catholic, but see the church as unsteady, outdated, obsessive. As a challenge to the “True Believers”, Nat pens a twenty-point manifesto for “cafeteria Catholics, who pass up certain Church teachings and scoop up others like a diner in a buffet line. Kreeft has an answer for Nat–One that spans over a hundred pages. The result is this book; a sharp, friendly, and funny debate between two honest thinkers trying to understand the Christian life. Nat “is the cafeteria Catholic,” writes Kreeft, “and I am the “eat all the food Mommy puts on your plate” Catholic,” Taking on Nat’s manifesto point by point Peter Kreeft builds his case for a full-package Catholicism, addressing the themes of authority, love, freedom, conscience, sex, abortion, social justice, science, and more. This debate serves as a fun and accessible introduction to some of the knottiest aspects of Catholic doctrine. Paper.
