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.
