+  Explaining the Catholic Faith for the New Evangelization (full hour)

  • Description: By now, we’ve all heard statistics that show for every convert into the Catholic Church, more than seven leave. The millions of people who have left are still looking for meaning, but if the culture and even their own experiences have positioned Christianity as irrelevant, then our efforts to reach them will be fruitless. We talk effective evangelization with Michel Therrien.

    • The Catholic Faith Explained

      What is the point of faith, and, in particular, of the Catholic Faith? Written in a welcoming style, this straightforward book provides a clear, compelling answer to that question. As such, it s meant for non-Catholics who are curious about the Catholic Faith, for cradle Catholics who may never have really understood the Faith, and for longtime Catholics who ve begun to question the Faith and may even be thinking of leaving it. Here, free of controversies and polemics, you ll encounter the principal beliefs that form the framework of Christianity, and, in particular, a thorough explanation of what the Church teaches about Jesus. To accomplish this faithfully, author Michel Therrien relies on just two sources the Bible and the Catechism of the Catholic Church to provide an authoritative overview of what the Faith teaches about God and why believing in Him is important. In twenty short, easy-to-digest chapters, Therrien presents you with Christianity as the Catholic Church understands it. Among scores of other fundamentals of the Faith, this book will teach you:

        • How we come to know God
        • How God reveals Himself to us
        • Who God is, as Scripture reveals Him
        • Jesus Christ s loving plan for humanity
        • How to live as a disciple of Jesus Christ
        • How Catholicism will bring you happiness
      And much more! (learn more)
