9780867167252: Believing in Jesus: A Popular Overview of the Catholic Faith (Fifth Revised Edition)

"In order to understand why the 'outside' of the Church—the visible, organized part—is important we have to ask the question: What is the Church for? The Church's purpose is to do in flesh and blood what Jesus did and does."—from Chapter 14

Leonard Foley wrote Believing in Jesus to help "born Catholics" come to a deeper understanding of the beliefs and practices they have held all their lives and to help those who approach the Catholic Church for the first time. He wrote, "I hope this book will help some scared and scarred people and challenge others."

Now in its fifth revised edition, the best-selling Believing in Jesus captures the Christian's continuing journey of faith, ever new, ever alive—yet always founded on God's steadfast love for us. In 27 chapters written in a lively style, Foley covers the complete spectrum of Catholic faith, leading the reader from early Old Testament times through a world "starting over" in Jesus to the endtime, when Jesus will come again and we will share fully in his life.

This edition is current with Church documents and events, including cross-references to the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Discussion questions and an updated and expanded resources section will prove invaluable to individuals and groups wanting to explore further the faith they profess.
