Overview

The Faith of Our Fathers:A Plain Exposition and Vindication of the Church Founded by Our Lord Jesus Christ is a book published in 1876 by archbishop James Gibbons, which became a best-selling conversion manual in the United States and by 1980 was in its 111th printing.

In his 1917 preface to the 83rd edition, the Cardinal noted that "since the first edition appeared, in 1876 up to the present time, fourteen hundred thousand copies have been published and the circulation of the book is constantly increasing."

The work has been translated into nearly all the languages of Europe. Well-known agnostic, literary critic and fellow Baltimorean H. L. Mencken wrote, in his survey of religion Treatise on the Gods, that "the best exposition of Catholic doctrine is probably The Faith of our Fathers', by the late Cardinal Gibbons."

    TRUTH DOESN'T CHANGE....

    This book covers all of the beliefs of the Catholic Church, from Mary to the Eucharist, it is all in here. Cardinal Gibbons shows through Scripture and Early Christians, that the 'Faith of Our Fathers' and the Catholic faith, are one in the same. Written in the 19th century, this book again proves that the Catholic Church has the fullness of the Christian faith, and has since 33AD!!!
