"God's self-revelation, above all in Jesus Christ, gives me an inexhaustible answer to my questions about the meaning and purpose of life." - Father Alfred McBride
The Catholic Church has just issued its first official Catechism since the Council of Trent in 1546. Now you can discover for yourself the wealth of information contained in this monumental new work with Essentials of the Faith: A Guide to the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
Like the Catechism, Essentials of the Faith is built on four pillars: The Creed, The Sacraments, The Commandments, and Prayer. But unlike the Catechism, Essentials of the Faith puts the complex theological concepts into easy-to-understand everyday English ideal for personal or group study, each chapter consists of a short essay on a topic from the Catechism, a practical life application, thoughtful reflection questions, prayer, and a glossary of terms.
Father McBride's eloquent style reveals the essence of the Catechism in a way that is sure to inspire a desire to know the teachings of the Faith more completely and to live them more fully.
If you want to fall in love with God ...
If you want to stay in love with God ...
Then Essentials of the Faith is the book for you!
