What sets Catholicism apart from other Christian faiths? What does it mean to be Catholic today? Is the Bible a "Catholic" book? An Invitation to Catholic Faith gets the Catholic conversation rolling.
You'll learn about the rich traditions, awesome mystery, and fascinating people of the Catholic Church. In clear and concise language, the author explains Catholic approaches to Scripture, Tradition, the sacraments, spiritual practices, and more. Wise and lively commentary plus discussion questions make this book perfect for individual or group study; for RCIA inquirers, catechumens, and candidates, and for returning or practising Catholics.
When life is confusing, troubling, or disappointing, the author says, "faith assures Catholics that there is more meaning to their existence than they could possibly know."
