The third edition of this popular work, a basic, clearly written survey of Catholic teaching and practices, is still one of the most accessible statements of Catholic belief, now updated for the 21st century by a skilled communicator and college teacher.

Emphasizing a strong historical perspective, Kohmescher presents a general overview of the essential teachings and practices of the Catholic church-its organization, beliefs, practices, and way of worship. A chapter on medical ethics has been added, and others on church and church life have been edited and/or expanded to reflect developments since 1989, when the second edition appeared.

Following each chapter are discussion questions and suggestions for further reading. Clear and easy to read, this book is sure to be as popular as its predecessor among young adults, R.C.I.A. participants, and established Catholics who would like a refresher on what the Catholic church teaches.
