Abstract:

Presents a basic understanding of the Catholic faith as a way of life, a way of looking at the world and a way of knowing ourselves. This is a comprehensive, monumental look at Catholicism -- not just a catechism of Church teachings, but an analysis of what it means to be a Catholic and the role of faith in our lives. "The title indicates the aim of this work: to present the mystery of God, Christ and the Church to the men and women of our day. The author clarifies the chief doctrines of the faith and responds to the questions of believers and unbelievers alike. By means of an ongoing dialogue, he leads us into the heart of the divine mysteries. He does this loyally, never hiding the questions raised by exegesis or science; but at the same time he gives a witness of faith that goes right to the heart of things." [Cardinal Suenens].
