Young adults will find clear answers to their questions about the faith in this guide to Catholic belief. Starting with the most essential question, "Is there a God", Alan Schreck offers user-friendly answers designed to lead the reader to a deeper understanding of Catholic essentials. Along the way, he considers such topics as: How can a loving God allow evil to exist? What is salvation? Can we lose it? Where do Catholic beliefs come from? Do we need the Church? Is the Eucharist really Jesus-body, blood, soul and divinity? Why do Catholics have to attend Mass every Sunday? Can the saints in heaven help those of us on earth? Do Catholics worship Mary? What will heaven be like? What is purgatory? What will happen at the end of human history?
Catholic and Christian for Young Adults is a lively treatment of Catholic essentials in an engaging question-and-answer format.
ALAN SCHRECK, PH.D., professor of theology at Franciscan University of Steubenville in Ohio, is author of numerous books, including Catholic Church History from A to Z, The Compact History of the Catholic Church, The Essential Catholic Catechism and Vatican II: The Crisis and the Promise (Servant Books).
