Wonders of the Catholic Faith Copyright © 2016 St. Joseph's Media      Wonders of the Catholic Faith is a remarkable catechism that teaches traditional Catholic beliefs and practices, and addresses important contemporary issues as well.  Based on the Catechism of the Council of Trent and the famous Baltimore Catechism, it also draws from Sacred Scripture and the writings of the Popes, Saints and the Fathers and Doctors of the Church.  It is a compendium of dogmatic theology (teachings of the Church), moral theology (practical application of the 10 Commandments), apologetics (defence of the Faith against heresy), history of the Bible and Catholic practices, liturgy (detailed explanation of the Mass and Sacraments), ascetical theology (principles of the spiritual life), and the application of these to our lives today. Concise yet complete, this book is a practical guide for today’s Catholics and those interested in the Faith.  It not only explains the teachings of the Church in a logical, scriptural manner, but also shows how to get to Heaven, which is, after all, our ultimate goal. Filled with inspirational stories, Wonders of the Catholic Faith keeps the readers’ interest and makes the Faith come alive.  Each paragraph is packed with information that lends itself to discussion and reflection.  An excellent resource for the classroom, it is perfect for adults, high school students and converts, as well as homeschoolers and catechism groups.  Containing copious footnotes and a list of resources as well as more than 200 study questions, it can be used for individual study, or in a classroom setting. Priests can also use it to prepare sermons and give instructions. Forty-three chapters cover everything from Creation to eschatology, while the chapter questions help students and adults understand Christ’s teachings and refute the errors of today. Its seemingly short length of 160 pages is deceptive as it contains everything a Catholic should know about the Faith, and answers nearly every question a person could pose from the correctness of the theory of evolution and the Big Bang Theory, to why God allows war, suffering, death, and financial difficulties. This adult catechism could be considered “Catholic belief made simple,” since it describes in clear, concise language the major beliefs of the Faith, while also delving into specific practices and devotions. The important relationship between Catholic belief and practice is also thoroughly examined as are the origin of the Bible and the importance of Apostolic Tradition. Published May 15, 2015
