The Catholic Faith Explained


About this item

What is the point of faith, and, in particular, of the Catholic Faith?

Written in a welcoming style, this straightforward book provides a clear, compelling answer to that question. As such, it's meant for non-Catholics who are curious about the Catholic Faith, for cradle Catholics who may never have really understood the Faith, and for longtime Catholics who've begun to question the Faith and may even be thinking of leaving it.

Here, free of controversies and polemics, you'll encounter the principal beliefs that form the framework of Christianity, and, in particular, a thorough explanation of what the Church teaches about Jesus. To accomplish this faithfully, author Michel Therrien relies on just two sources—the Bible and the Catechism of the Catholic Church—to provide an authoritative overview of what the Faith teaches about God and why believing in Him is important.

In twenty short, easy-to-digest chapters, Therrien presents you with Christianity as the Catholic Church understands it.

Among scores of other fundamentals of the Faith, this book will teach you:

  • How we come to know God
  • How God reveals Himself to us
  • Who God is, as Scripture reveals Him
  • Jesus Christ's loving plan for humanity
  • How to live as a disciple of Jesus Christ
  • How Catholicism will bring you happiness
  • And much more!

"This is the faith explained for today’s generation — not twenty years ago or fifty years ago. Therrien directly addresses the particular doubts, difficulties, and deficiencies of a postmodern, post-Christian generation that’s simultaneously skeptical and credulous. This book is evangelization’s present and near future."

"Michel Therrien's 'The Catholic Faith Explained' is clearly, concisely, and even beautifully written. Even more, it gives us something desperately needed in the Church: a book that paints the "big picture" of what Catholicism is all about. If you know someone--a family member, a friend, a co-worker--who has left the Catholic Church, or who just has serious questions about the Catholic faith, this is the book for them."
