If you were asked what immediately comes to mind when you hear the words "Catholic Church," would you answer "an intimate relationship with the God who loves me"?
If not, you would do well to read this engaging and thought-provoking book that explains why such a relationship is the reason for everything the Church does and teaches. Dr. Edward Sri will show you how all the pieces of the Catholic Faith, including the most baffling ones, fit together to make one beautiful mosaic of God's love for us and our own participation in that all-encompassing love.
Using the Catechism of the Catholic Church as his itinerary, Dr. Sri addresses such often-heard questions as:
• Why do I need the Church—can't I be spiritual on my own? • Isn't one religion just as good as another? • How is the death of a man two thousand years ago relevant for my life today? • Why does the Church talk so much about morality? • Can't I make up my own morals? • Is it really our responsibility to care for the poor—doesn't God help those who help themselves? • Why do Catholic and Protestants disagree? • Must Catholics worship Mary and always obey the pope?
Excellent for Catechists, RCIA teams, Catechuments, small group leaders and participants!
