Having a few spare minutes to browse a bit of social media — looking for a tweet worthy of re-tweet status, I stumbled upon a book review for The Catholic Hipster Handbook. First let me say that I didn’t know there was such an animal (Catholic Hipster), and second, after reading the reviews and write ups, I might have to purchase this book and see what all of the hub-bub is about. It sounds … interesting? Maybe just humorous? Different. After all, I am a book hoarder. These is a collection of essays and it might be nice to read something simple, faith-filled and of value. Here’s the book summary:
“Being a Catholic Hipster is all about an attitude—an attitude grounded in being part of a countercultural community of believers dedicated to something bigger than themselves in a world dominated by self-centeredness. It’s about yearning to learn more about the faith by seeking out “Catholic cool”—overlooked saints, forgotten prayers and feast days, and traditional practices long set aside by mainstream believers. The Catholic Hipster podcaster Tommy Tighe will help readers rediscover everything awesome about the Catholic faith.”
If YOU happen to read it before ME, let me know what you think.
