A TOUR OF CATHOLIC CATECHISM

Product Description
A Tour of the Catholic Catechism

by Fr. Peter Stravinskas

A commentary on the Catholic Catechism: lively, thorough and faith-filled.

Not by accident, says author and theologian Fr. Peter Stravinskas, did Pope John Paul II seem almost driven to produce the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the first reference text of Catholic beliefs since the Council of Trent of 1546. Statistics show an undeniable trend toward a basic misunderstanding of Church teaching. For example, a recent Gallup poll indicates that 70% of the laity who receive Holy Communion every Sunday do not believe they are receiving Christ's Real Presence.

The new catechism has been a success beyond imagaining, having sold millions of copies worldwide. But its 803 pages can be intimidating to the everyday Catholic. In response, Father Peter has written a commentary on the major teachings of the catechism in a refreshing, faith-filled style that has made him one of our most popular Catholic writers. Byt the catechism, says Father, is not "kid stuff," nor is the commentary in Tour. Individuals and study groups can count on every word to be in solid accordance with the mind of the Church-- with no punches pulled and a scholarly touch.

Convenient study questions at the end of each chapter encourage learning, and the suggested prayers at the book's end will help enlighten the mind to prepare for study.

Surely, Tour is what the Holy Father had in mind when he recommended thata "detailed study of the Catechism of the Catholic Church will prove of great benefit... to allow for a better knowledge of the Christian mystery and for enlivening the faith of the people of God."
