Overview

Now updated and referenced to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, this excellent primer remains a perennial favorite with over 125,000 copies sold. Renowned catechetical author Michael Pennock conveys foundational Catholic beliefs in a familiar question-and-answer format.

In this concise and readable introduction to the riches of the Catholic faith, the author poses and then briefly answers 210 questions that are essential to understanding the basics of Catholicism such as: What is divine revelation? What is grace? What does a sacrament do? Why confess our sins? Ideal for adults or teens interested in becoming Catholic through RCIA, preparing for Confirmation, returning to the Church, or simply wanting to begin a closer examination of the faith, this makes an ideal gift for seekers as they begin to explore or work to enhance their understanding of Catholicism and deepen their relationships with God.

"Pennock's great gift is identifying questions that frequently cross the minds of those seeking to better understand the Catholic faith. And what is more; he answers those questions in a concise, easy-to-understand way." —Neil A. Parent, Author of A Concise Guide to Adult Faith Formation

"All of us are called to be continual 'seekers' with regards to our faith. Here is a guide for the always-big questions about God and us, good and evil, justice, Jesus, Mary, and so much more." —Anne Comeaux, Director of the Office of Continuing Christian Education, Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston
