This book is a very practical, inspiring primer for the common Catholic as it breaks down the Catholic faith into six key categories that can be applied to everyday life. The six categories are color coded and use an acronym of the word SAINTS to help us see how every aspect of the Catholic faith fits together as a whole to help us become saints. It is a call to action for parents, grandparents, and all Catholic adults to take seriously their obligation to both live and pass on the faith, and is a resource providing the tools necessary to do just that.
In the spirit of the "New Evangelization", Wood uses popular movies, songs, stories, sports, and life experiences to teach the faith. He shares the CD's, DVD's, books, and media that have helped him learn and fall in love with the Catholic faith and pass it on to every age group. The book revolves around the words of the sacrament of Baptism, reminding Catholic parents that they have been entrusted with the duty of being primary educators of the faith. He helps parents rediscover the genius of Catholicism so they can be equipped to confidently learn, live, and pass on their faith to the next generation.
John helps us understand that we are called to put God first in everything we do in this world, and that building holy families is essential in building holy vocations and becoming saints. At a time when young people are leaving the faith in massive numbers, he offers new ways of engaging our children in their faith from a very young age.
