What sets Catholicism apart from other Christian faiths? What does it mean to be Catholic today? Is the Bible a “Catholic” book? An Invitation to Catholic Faith gets the Catholic conversation rolling.

You’ll learn about the rich traditions, awesome mystery, and fascinating people of the Catholic Church. In clear and concise language, the author explains Catholic approaches to Scripture, Tradition, the sacraments, spiritual practices, and more. Wise and lively commentary plus discussion questions make this book perfect for individual or group study; for RCIA inquirers, catechumens, and candidates, and for returning or practicing Catholics.

When life is confusing, troubling, or disappointing, the author says, “faith assures Catholics that there is more meaning to their existence than they could possibly know.”

Joseph Stoutzenberger, Ph.D., is Professor of Religious Studies at Holy Family University in Philadelphia, PA. He is the author of You Are My Friends: Gospel Reflections for the Journey and The Human Quest for God: An Overview of World Religions
