Book Review: Why God Matters: How to Recognize Him in Daily Life

I was recently given the opportunity to review the newly released book, Why God Matters: How to Recognize Him in Daily Life by Karina Lumbert Fabian and her father, Deacon Steven Lumbert.  As state in the opening paragraph of the text, "In their collaboration, Why God Matters, Deacon Steven Lumbert and his daughter, Karina Lumbert Fabian, delineate the Catholic Faith as experienced by a par of average, everyday people like the great majority who make up the 24% of Americans who share this religion.

The text was an extremely quick read as I read the 113 pages in 2 hours.  The book is not an academic work but rather is composed of extremely short (under 10 page) chapters describing the presence of Catholicism in each author's individual life.  Throughout the text are references before each chapter to not only the Catechism of the Catholic Church but also the writings of the saints.

A quick and easy read that is available for sale on  Please view the item at Why God Matters: How to Recognize Him in Daily Life

Dear Matthew,

Thank you for your review of our book! My father and I definitely enjoyed sharing our stories, and hope some of your readers will be encouraged to check the book out.

We'd also love to hear others' faith stories as well. If you've had God show Himself in some everyday way, share your story with us at

Thanks again and God Bless,
Karina Fabian
