Product Overview

The Catholic Church is by far the largest Christian denomination and the largest organized body of any world religion. Well over a billion people - more than one-sixth of the world's population - belong to it. But what do Catholics actually believe?
While not neglecting those aspects of the faith which all Christians share, Leonie Caldecott pays particular attention to the beliefs which make Catholicism distinctive. She emphasizes the importance to Catholics of Church history, and the central role of the Papacy. More important still is the Mass: the participation - through an act as simple as eating - in God's divinity. She examines aspects of the faith such as the Trinity, the mystical role of Mary as 'heart' of the Church, the doctrine of Papal Infallibility, and looks at the challenges the faith has to confront in the twenty-first century.
