    I just finished reading Frank Scoblete's new book called "Confessions of a Wayward Catholic". As someone who spent 12+ years in Catholic school, albeit a long time ago, I had a great time reading this. Admittedly, I am already a fan if his gambling books and have read and own most of them. This new one is not about gambling at all, but I loved the humor and laughed out loud repeatedly while reading it. But my favorite chapters were at the end of the book where he talks about his thoughts and feelings about the church and it's teachings. Frank is still a practicing Catholic, but he's definitely wayward.

    It's a very enjoyable read.

    I was raised a Catholic and went to a Jesuit University, so I'll have to check it out. The dirtiest jokes I've ever been told were told by guys studying for the priesthood.

    Frank,

    Just finished reading O'Reilly's 'Killing Jesus'. Nothing new spiritually, but impressive new historical information, only a small amount of which is conjecture.

    I'll lend it to a fellow catholic, if desired.

    I had purchased Lincoln and Kennedy almost as soon as released, not sure why I waited so long for the best one.
