I've read many books on Catholic apologetics from today's authors (i.e. Keating, Hahn, Madrid, Johnson, etc.), and though those authors are excellent in their own regard, I think that this 130 year old classic is the finest for anyone just starting out in Catholic apologetics or just wanting to know what Catholics really believe. It's straight-forward, easy to read, uninsulting, and accurate. And after 130 years, the truths it teaches about Catholicism have not changed. Sure, there are a few brief mentions of historial issues (European governments) and the Mass in Latin which are dated, but the core Catholic beliefs he describes have not changed--not just from 1876 but from the time of the Apostles.

Cardinal Gibbons honestly and frankly describes what the Church believes and teaches. His language is very thoughtful, heartfelt, logical, and inclusive of scripture and references. Plus, since Cardinal Gibbons based the content on lectures and discourses with mixed Catholic/Protestant congregations in rural, protestant North Carolina and Virginia, his approach is very accommodating and non-offensive.

If you want to know what the Catholic Church REALLY teaches...AND what Catholics REALLY believe, this is the first book you should pick up. I would feel comfortable lending this book to ANYONE who wants to know more about Catholicism or wants to strengthen or defend their Catholic faith.

I didn't expect that the prints are so tiny I could not read the book. Buyers should have been warned of the book's small prints.

The printing is way too light. Not like any book I've seen. You must read it in a good light.
The pages look like they were were scanned from 8"x11" sheets of paper that did not come out near dark enough.

That being said is not to detract from it's clear and possibly unparalleld explanantion of Christ's Church teachings that has been read by Catholics and non Catholics for years. In that regard it is excellant. The printing itself of this edition should be darker like most of the other editions.

This a great go-to manual to defend the Catholic faith when confronted by nonbelievers and skeptics. Every fallen-away Catholic should read this book.

I would not recommend this edition, The Faith of our Fathers is an amazing book- first edition 1876-Wow! And still circulating! This book is a must read and should be in every catholic home! However this edition is not good, it does not have footnotes- these are very important because the footnotes gives the reader other references such as scripture quotes pertaining to the information being read. This book also does not have an index. Would not recommend this copy as a gift, nor for reading. I would strongly recommend the edition with the cover page of Jesus handing down the keys to Saint Peter the Apostle, this edition is published by Tan Books.
Praised be Jesus and Mary!

The print is so small in this book that I would have to use a magnifying glass. Instead of doing that I bought it for my Kindle . Problem solved.
