“Let the little children come to Me. . . . ”—Matthew 19:14
Questions about the Catholic faith deserve serious answers—especially when they are posed by children. In Ask the Bishop, Bishop Jeffrey Monforton thoughtfully responds to important questions asked by kindergarteners through high schoolers.
Bishop Monforton gives compelling answers that all curious Catholics will learn from. Ask the Bishop answers questions on
- Catholic teaching
- Friendship with Jesus
- And so much more
Written in the welcoming style of a skilled teacher, Ask the Bishop proves that no one is too young to encounter the life-giving message of Jesus Christ.
Bishop Jeffrey M. Monforton is the bishop of Steubenville, Ohio. He is the former rector of Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit. Ask the Bishop began as an initiative in Bishop Monforton’s diocesan newspaper, where children of all ages could write in questions about the faith and receive a response from the Bishop.
“Bishop Monforton provides for us a whimsical and down-to-earth apologetic with regard to the mysteries of the Catholic faith. The reader will greatly enjoy his responses to the questions of children.”
—Most Rev. Michael Byrnes, Archbishop of Agaña
“Rare is the bishop who is willing to answer the questions of his people — and is able to answer in the language of their hearts. Such a man is Bishop Jeffrey Monforton. I pray that this book will amplify his voice well beyond his ‘little flock,’ of which I’m pleased to be a member.
—Scott Hahn, Founder and President of the St. Paul Center and author of Hope to Die
