9780060563431: A Faith Worth Believing: Finding New Life Beyond the Rules of Religion

The faith of our childhood does not always survive into adulthood. What seemed obvious and convincing at an early age looks askew after encounters with suffering, illness, different religions, modern science, or dozens of other challenges contemporary life throws in our path. Despite setbacks and the obvious failures of the church itself, many people still long to be part of their faith family.

Using the Catholic Church's Baltimore Catechism to structure his exploration, Father Stella candidly and systematically questions various doctrines of the faith -- from God, Jesus, and the Trinity, to faith, charity, heaven and hell -- using personal reflections on his religious journey to come to new and more meaningful understandings of the Christian life of faith. Each chapter concludes with personal meditations that embolden the reader to deepen and reflect upon their faith. Stella invites us to accompany him as we move from a faith based on what we are told to one that our souls know to be true.

Stella calls us back to the roots of the Christian faith -- to a faith that is thoughtful, all-pervasive, and based on the recognition that God is mystery.
