Imagine today’s top Catholic authors, apologists, and theologians. Now imagine 12 of them collaborating on a book that answers common questions about, and challenges to, the teachings and doctrines of the Catholic Church. Imagine no more, it’s a reality. This best-selling book will help Catholics and non-Catholics alike develop a better understanding of the Church.
Each chapter goes to the heart of its topic, be it Mary, the Eucharist, Baptism, or Purgatory. In a clear, concise and insightful way, Hahn and Suprenant present the teachings of the Church, and explain them in the light of the relationship of God the Father to us, His creatures.
"This is one of the most exciting books of theology or apologetics I have seen in years. It is not the usual fare: neither warmed-up leftovers nor foreign foods indigestible by the Catholic stomach, but 'strong meat' full of spiritual vitamins. Its central idea of 'the family of God' turns out to be central to every aspect of the Catholic faith, and no idea is more fundamental to our current crisis and 'culture war' than this one."
-- Peter Kreeft, Ph.D., Author, "Catholic Christianity" and co-author "Handbook of Christian Apologetics"
"As a lifelong Catholic I always admired the fervor of many evangelicals, but I was puzzled by their selective use of Scripture and lack of awareness of the teaching of the Church in first centuries. I have found this fine book a great help to my own understanding of Catholic apologetics as well as a valuable insight into evangelical thinking. As often happens, the converts teach the cradle Catholics so very much about appreciating our own faith."
-- Rev. Benedict J. Groeschel, C.F.R.
