Exploring the Catholic Church: An Introduction to Catholic Teaching and Practice
Dr. Marcellino D'Ambrosio, one of the Church's best popular teachers, gives readable and inspiring explanations of Catholic teaching and practice. Exploring the Catholic Church is the perfect starter book for seekers and inquirers, for candidates in the RCIA, and for Catholics who just want to refresh their faith and practice.
"Dr. D'Ambrosio's book is a pleasurable walk through various conversions: to the Lordship of Jesus Christ; to a love of His Catholic Church; from sin; to more intimate prayer; to union with Christ through sacrament and meditation … The genius of this book is D'Ambrosio's open sharing of his own conversions … from rock-and-roll bands, through seminary, to crying babies and little rascals in church. His are the questions of millions, and his answers are plainly based on authentic Catholic teaching. This is a most useful book."
