Overview

Good news is meant to be understood! As Christian believers we need to express our belief in language that makes sense to us as adults in today's world. In What Catholics Believe: Exploring Our Faith Today, the author draws on her experience as a religious educator to present key topics of Catholic belief -- faith, Scripture, Jesus, sacraments, sin, among others -- in a relevant and concise style that is both informed and accessible. She looks at some of the ways our Catholic faith was expressed before Vatican II and how our understanding has developed and been enriched in the years since. She invites us to ask questions about our beliefs in order to make them our own. What Catholics Believe is an excellent resource for catechists and teachers, for RCIA catechumens and candidates, and for adult Catholics who want a "refresher course" to update their faith.
