What do I believe? What am I unsure about? Is religious belief reasonable? In this exploratory examination of his Catholic faith, Gerard Windsor is entertaining, stimulating and full of anecdote, history, forays into art and literature, and even a bit of gossip.

Beginning with how you get 'religion' in the first place, Windsor goes on to the Gospels and the personality of Jesus Christ and the possibility of any relationship with him. He then moves on to the existence and nature of God, winding down with the grubby present realities - the factions within Catholicism, scandal, sexual abuse, argument and bigotry.

Interlaced with twelve inspirational, edifying, moving cameos of true-life moments of grace, this is Windsor's take on religion and specifically Catholicism.
