Context shapes behavior and provokes questions. As men and women adapt to new times and ways, their faith, too, must adapt. In The Living Church: Old Treasures, New Discoveries, Christopher M. Bellitto carefully explains how seven key elements developed through the centuries and became part of the Catholic tradition.
Those elements: Church doctrine, the sacraments, Scripture, how the Church operates, the Mass, how Catholics walk with non-Catholics, and how Catholics live the faith all are the result of a process that involves asking questions that bring core teaching into dialogue with current experiences. Thus our faith adapts in ways that express God's love at work in our lives today.
The Living Church: Old Treasures, New Discoveries provides the historical context for the decisions, doctrine, and practice of the faith that were outlined in Bellitto's companion title, Church History 101. Bellitto will introduce you to a living Church and take you on a lively journey of faith
