Product Description

Your no idiot, of course! You know that Catholicism is one of the largest denominations of Christianity and that the Pope is the leader of the Church. But there is much more to being Catholic than saying your prayers and going to Sunday Mass.

The Complete Idiot's Guide to Understanding Catholicism, Third Edition, will show you exactly what it means to be Catholic-from its ancient origins to its role in modern times. This revised and updated Complete Idiot's Guide explains:
  • The modern-day Catholic Church-following the death of Pope John II and the election of Pope Benedict XVI.
  • How Vatacan II's "revolution" changed the face of Catholicism
  • The present state and effectiveness of Catholic Schools, education, identity, and social teaching
  • The seven Catholic sacraments and the "Catholic Bible"
  • The various stances within American Catholicism

Publisher's Description

What does it mean to be Catholic today?
Newly updated and revised.

How can the Catholic Church be both hugely popular and widely scorned? How can it hold onto its ancient roots and be forever changing? This updated guide tells the story of being Catholic as Catholics themselves live their faith, every day of their lives. More than ever before, this edition speaks to interested outsiders, non-clergy, and practicing Catholics, as well as to religious professionals and members of the clergy.

This book explores:
• The various stances within American Catholicism today
• Recent Catholic history, most notably, the death of John Paul II and the succession of Pope Benedict XVI
• The seven sacraments
• The present state of Catholic education, Catholic identity, and Catholic social teaching
