About this title


Today, examples are more necessary than ever, because most people are incapable of thinking on the level of ideas and principles. Fr. Spirago, like Our Lord, teaches by parables. The author weaves over 650 short but brilliant examples and anecdotes throughout 36 chapters drawn from the four traditional areas of catechesis: Creed, Sacraments, Commandments and Prayer. Indispensable for parents of young children. This one example should suffice: "Q. Who Made the World? A. God Made the World. "The Astronomer and The Globe: The world did not come into existence spontaneously. The celebrated astronomer Athanasius Kirchner had a friend who did not believe in the existence of God, and frequently asserted that the orbs of heaven were self-existent. One day, when this friend visited the astronomer, he noticed in one corner of the room a globe which displayed the hand of a skillful workman. "Who made that globe?" he inquired. "No one made it,?" Kirchner answered, "it is self-made." And when his friend seemed angry at this answer being given him, he added: "If the immense orbs of heaven are self-existent, why not this insignificant little globe?" The unbeliever looked thoughtful, and presently acknowledged that he now saw that his principles were false." 596 pp. Foil-stamped hardcover, index.
