9780867165791: The Mystery of Faith: An Introduction to Catholicism


In his familiar, conversational style, Father Himes invites the reader to consider ten basic truths of Catholicism. Beginning with discussions of Trinity, Grace, the Incarnation and Salvation, Himes moves into an exploration of Church as the continuting presence of Jesus Christ in the world today. After discussing what Baptism and the baptismal commitment really involves, he focuses on Eucharist, showing the importance of the sacrament for personal growth and for the building of community. After discussing the Sacraments of Matrimony and Holy Orders, Himes explores the importance of the sacrament of reconciliation in the Christian community, and concludes with a discussion of the great gift to the church that we know as tradition.

Based on Father Himes' popular video series, The Mystery of Faith, this book includes questions for reflection and discussion at the conclusion of each chapter. An excellent resource for small groups or parish learning communities seeking to revitalize and deepen their understanding of basic Catholic beliefs.

About the Author:

REV. MICHAEL HIMES holds a doctorate in theology from the University of Chicago. He has taught at the Seminary of the Immaculate Conception (Huntington, New York) and the University of Notre Dame. Currently he is on the faculty of Boston College.

From AudioFile:

Drawn from a video production based on the author's book of the same name, this audio is like an undergraduate course--intellectually rich, dry, and sometimes funny. The author/narrator is a self-contained, experienced cleric who delivers his reflections sometimes as an offering, sometimes as a gentle admonition, and always with the tone of someone with full authority over his teachings. The 10 current issues he covers are the Trinity, grace, incarnation, salvation, church, baptism, the Eucharist, sacraments of vocation, reconciliation, and tradition. Useful to all thinking people, these concise lessons are all satisfying and grounded in the Church's tradition of thinking and reflection.
