Editorial Reviews

Clayton F. Bower Jr.
The Faith Explained helps all these people. I'd rank it as one of the best explanations of Catholic belief and practice you can give the average person.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to any practicing Catholic who wants a clear, solid, and satisfying explanation of the faith, nor would I hesitate to give it to a lapsed Catholic, a non-Catholic, or an anti-Catholic.

Its style is clear, easy, and engaging, and it avoids theological jargon that might confuse the reader yet doesn't speak down to the reader either. It's a smooth narrative with explanations structured around the articles of the creed, the commandments, and the sacraments. Included is a key to the catechism so it can easily be referenced for particular questions.

Having The Faith Explained back is like having spring return—it's a familiar and welcome breath of fresh air. Next to the New Testament there is no book that I have given more copies of to friends and inquirers.

    Great Catholic Book

    This is a great book to learn more about the Catholic faith. It gives good, simple, down-to-earth explainations. Has Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur.

    A must for every Catholic.

    The Faith Explained is a very informative book about the Catholic faith,especially for those who went through Catholic school after VaticanII. It is a very good reference book for questions about the beliefs of our faith. A copy should be in every Catholic home.

    Best book I've read about Catholicism

    The book was given to me by my father-in-law at Christmas and it is a most cherished gift. I read it in a matter of days as it is totally absorbing. For anyone interested in learning about the Catholic Church or wants to deepen their own understanding of a faith they already believe they know, this book is highly recommended. The examples given to explain complex doctrine are clear, simple and unique.
