Understanding Catholic teaching from Catholic sources
on March 22, 2002
The Scriptures; the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass; the real presence in the Eucharist; Mary; Purgatory; justification; the nature of baptism; priests. These are all subjects of many a civilized discussion (or heated dispute!) with our protestant brothers and sisters.
The assembled essays in this book explain these and other issues in very clear and readable language. They serve well in explaining the Biblical and historical basis behind these issues.
For the Catholic who wants to understand the faith better, whether it be for personal growth or to help defend the teachings against those who would criticize them, this book is for you.
For the protestant who is willing to let the Catholic Church explain the Catholic Church, this book is for you too.
A pretty easy read. Well worth your time!
