Publisher's Description

In this new reissue of Fr. Hardon’s classic, the universal Catechism of the Catholic Church is presented in an easy-to-use question-and-answer format. He zeroes in on what question each section is trying to answer and formulates that question in user-friendly language. He then gives a simple answer in his own words, referencing the section of the Catechism that addresses the question.

Still as fresh and relevant as when it was first released, The Faith makes the Catechism of the Catholic Church accessible to a new generation of readers. Fr. Hardon helps to form Catholics in the faith by focusing on the principle points of doctrine, moral teaching, and spirituality conveyed so richly in the Catechism. In the pages of this book, you’ll learn:
  • What the faith we profess is all about
  • Why Christianity is the most credible religion in the world
  • How the Catholic Church possesses the fullness of truth
  • Catholics today have a greater responsibility than ever before to educate themselves first and then the world—a world that is starving for knowledge of Christ and his truth. This question-and-answer guide will be a valuable addition to your library.

Author Bio

Fr. John Hardon (1914–2000) received his master’s degree from Loyola University in 1941 and was ordained to the priesthood in 1947. He received his Doctorate in Sacred Theology (S.T.D.) from the Gregorian University in 1951, and became a Jesuit in 1953. A college professor, confessor, and spiritual director, he was the author of many books.

Editorial Reviews

If you’re anything like me, you looked at the Catechism and thought, “There’s NO WAY I can read that and understand it, retain the information, have any luck at all.” I was shocked when I started reading the Catechism (after my spiritual director had encouraged me for, oh, three years or so) and it was NOT SO BAD!

Even so, there’s a lot in the Catechism. It’s really more of a reference than a fun reading adventure (though it can be that, don’t get me wrong). What Servant has pulled together here is a great companion to your reference shelf. I caught myself diving into this when I was looking for additional information on different topics for Confirmation Boot Camp, and I know I’ll use it in preparing talks and columns.

This book is designed and arranged to be a companion to the Catechism. It’s easy to use and it’s cross referenced with paragraphs in the Catechism.

This is an indispensable guide for all Catholics. Whether you want to learn more about your faith, need a boost in teaching it, or are just curious, this book is sure to provide clear and concise information.—Sarah Reinhard, CatholicMom.com
