Richard Leonard is a Jesuit priest as well as a bestselling author and in this, his third book, asks us a question, ‘What Are We Doing on Earth for Christ’s Sake?

He invites Christians to revisit their faith in the midst of the contemporary world and its challenges. Rather than ignoring the world around us or creating one that is removed from reality, the book encourages the need for honest dialogue, stresses the importance of religious experience, but most importantly, urges the practice of genuine actions for Christ’s sake.

“Fr Leonard’s book insists that being a Catholic leaves you with many questions but is never boring. Neither is the book, and that is rare praise.”
Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ
