Description: What does it mean to be Catholic? Sadly, many people -including a lot of Catholics - can't answer that question. Jack Mulder, a convert from Protestantism, gives us the answer and how to explain it to others.
Jack is an associate professor of philosophy at Hope College in Holland, Michigan. He's the author of "What does it mean to be Catholic?" and "Kierkegaard and the Catholic Tradition."
A clear, engaging introduction to the Catholic faith
What does it mean to be Catholic? Many people, both non-Catholics and even Catholics themselves, really don't know. This accessible book by Jack Mulder is ideal for all who are curious to know more about Catholicism.
Writing in a conversational style, Mulder clearly portrays the main contours of the Catholic faith. For readers who have ever wondered what exactly the Roman Catholic Church teaches about predestination, original sin, the Virgin Mary, abortion, same-sex marriage, and other issues, Mulder explains all that — and much more — in simple language.
Mulder, who was raised in the Protestant tradition and converted to Catholicism later in life, speaks from the perspective of having wrestled with his own beliefs over the years. With solid information — and without proselytizing — Mulder's What Does It Mean to Be Catholic? presents a truly fresh perspective on the distinctive features of the Catholic faith. (learn more)
