Thoughts? I wonder if, in the end, it would be better for kids to read a good secular book than to read a book with the subtle message "Christian living is practical!"
(Off topic, I think it's kind of funny that many of the intended young readers of these books are probably being taught to reject the "works righteousness"of the Catholic Church.
Please do not start trying in the comments box to convince me to reject "works righteousness"; that topic has been flogged to death plenty of other places. Besides, I need to unload the dishwasher.)
