Description

What do Catholics believe? How do they see their relationship to Christ and the Church, and what is the Christian life of virtue? This book provides a concise and intelligent introduction to Catholicism, covering the whole range of Catholic teaching: Christ, Church, sacraments, virtues, Mary, and the Trinity. Roderick Strange discusses the role of the papacy, its origin and influence, and analyses the developments in the Church since the Second Vatican Council. Clear and readable, the book is intended for those who are conscious of knowing too little about their faith, those who feel the need for reassurance, and non-Catholics who are curious about the teachings of the Church. This book is intended for students of religious studies; practising Catholics; those with a general interest in religion.show more
