This book presents the basic beliefs of the Catholic Church, beginning with the Resurrection. With extensive use of the Bible, the CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH, and the documents of the Second Vatican Council, this book explains clearly and succinctly the dogmas of the Catholic Church that flow from her faith in the Trinity. Each dogma is traced back to the faith of the first followers of Jesus and its development over time is explored. Each chapter also outlines the implications of a given belief. This book is intended for the general reader–Catholic and non-Catholic and is an ideal way to deepen understanding of the Catholic faith. Paper.
