 Our Description

Catholic And Christian - An Explanation Of Commonly Misunderstood Catholic Beliefs
Alan Schreck

"You're a Catholic. What do you believe?"

You're on the spot. Someone wants you to explain some aspect of Catholic belief. Do you REALLY think the pope is infallible? Why do Catholics pray to Mary? Where do sacraments come from? What do you think of the Bible? Are you saved? You wish some well-informed Catholic friend were around to help with the answer.

Or perhaps you are asking the questions yourself. Where do Catholic beliefs come from? Why do we pray for the dead? How does the rosary fit into a biblical faith?

The best-selling Catholic and Christian provides the answers you need. It is a readable and concise summary of commonly misunderstood Catholic beliefs - the teachings and practices that don't get much attention in Sunday homilies and in religious education, but which puzzle Catholics and non-Catholics alike. This is a book for all Catholics who want to know more about their faith.

Alan Schreck is a professor of theology at Franciscan University of Steubenville in Ohio. He is the author of numerous books, including The Essential Catholic Catechism and Catholic Church History From A to Z.
