Father J.R.BucVs Newest Book
Offers Interest to Both Church
Member and Non-Believer f Reviewer
By SHELDON F. SACKETT
The Reverend J. R- Buck, pas
tor of St. Joseph's church here,
has packed a considerable
amount of theology and homilet
ics into his newest book. "Why
Do Catholics" but the reader. Is
not distressed by. obtuse phrase
and dry . paragraphs. Father
Buck chooses a pleasing Informal
-dialog style of exposition which
makes his chapters fully as in
teresting as those In his first
publication, A Convert Pastor
"Why Do Cathpllcs'- carries
the reader through the questions
most often asked by non-Catholics
of neophytes In the faith and
an$wers them with the erudition
of a priest versed both in church
history and practice and In the
nature of Mr. Ordinary Man. ... .
. Controversial - questions such
as' "The Unmarried Priesthood';
"Masonry and. the Catholic
Church", "The Divinity , of
Christ". "Miracles". "Angels and
Devils" are dealt with fully and
frankly. Each of the 18 chapters
centers about some inquiry.
Father Buck -has shown original
ity in ' choosing ' some Incident
adapted from his experience to
set tne stage for his exposition
of Catholic belief on these 18
Issues. ; ,.

Catholic or In sympathy with the
views of that church, he can
readily praise the obvious sincer
ity, gentility, and frankness of
the author's approach.' As Fath
er Buck writes: "I am not as
smooth tempered as I should be,
but if one is asking in good faith.
I do not think I am apt to grow
angry. Fire away. What do you
want to ask?" . -
. It Is this spirit which prevails
throughout - the book. Father
Buck indicates he has attributes
of the debater; he anticipates the
questions oft . put by the other
side, gets them out in the open,
and answers them in full. Wheth
er the answers are complete and
satisfactory, will depend upon the
bias of the reader. Just the same
as - the answers themselves de
pend on" Father Buck's experi
ence and thinking. --
From either Yiewpoint taken
by the reader, the book proves
informative, convinces one of the
worthy purpose of the author,
and could be read with equal In
terest by church member or non
believer. It ts printed by the
Bruce Publishing company of
MUwankle and contains a fore
word by Rt. Rev. Bernard Mur
