"Part explanation, part rant"
The author goes way out of bounds in exploring what he calls Catholicism, reviewing the changing contraception polices of the People's Republic of China, for example, a topic totally irrelevant to Catholic doctrine. This book should be a blog with comments where we can call him on his factual errors, obvious character assassinations, and questionable theology.
As for the performance, I would expect it to be a matter of course for a narrator to go through a book in advance to spot words he/she doesn't know how to pronounce, and get the pronunciations before reading. Then Mr. Lawlor would know, for example, that Augustine is pronounced "Uh-gus'-tin" -- it rhymes with Rustin -- and not "Og'-us-teen."
This book is both spot on regarding true Catholic fundamentals and will make you both angry and laugh out loud at certain points.
