More About This Book

Overview

With 95 percent of Catholic school students abandoning the regular practice of their faith before completing their educations, there is an urgent need for reform in regard to how the Faith is taught. While the Church maintains there is a God, the materialistic world says that both God and religion are false. In time science may indeed prove both to be false if steps are not taken to provide evidence that God exists.

Author Frank Baker believes that Faith teachings should be made to conform to the same standards as academic teachings, meaning that what's being taught should be backed up with actual evidence. Bringing the Catholic Church Into the Twenty-First Century seeks to present irrefutable evidence that, among other things, there is a God and the soul does indeed survive after death. The book also explores the creation story as told by Genesis and contrasts it with the teachings of modern science.

If those responsible for teaching the Faith were to read this book and put its principals into practice, the Catholic Church would stand a better chance of adapting to the rigors of an increasingly scrutinous world, and finding a means to thrive in the twenty-first century.

Born and raised in Melbourne, Australia, author Frank Baker now lives in Bundaberg in Queensland. After 34 years working for the Gas & Fuel Corporation, Frank is now retired and spends his time writing, playing croquet, ballroom dancing, and playing cards. He is also currently the treasurer of the Moore Park Beach Arts Festival. This is his first book.
