"What a timely book! At a time when too many people keep repeating all the wrong reasons to leave or stay away from the Catholic Church, Mitch Finley offers a gentle and sensible invitation to come back. What disaffected Catholic will not see herself or himself in this book? And what thinking Catholic hasn't had similar problems with the Church?"
--Paul Wilkes, author of The Seven Secrets of Successful Catholics
"It's Not the Same Without You is an immensely valuable and overdue book, giving voice to the authentic concerns of those Catholics who've fallen away from Church practice. It's a tonic against alienation and misunderstanding and a gracious prescription for healthy sacramental life."
--Ron Hansen, author of A Stay Against Confusion: Essays on Faith and Fiction, Atticus, and Mariette in Ecstasy
