In the Catholic press there have recently been a number of articles implying a conservative backlash against the 'liberal' lecturers in English Catholic Seminaries. Roderick Strange was Rector of the English College in Rome, yet far from being partisan in either a conservative of liberal way he presents the Catholic faith to Catholics and non-catholics alike in a clear and readable manner drawing upon history and his own experience, without making the book a personal testimony of faith. This is a thoroughly human and humane book which manages to explain with apparent ease some of the more difficult doctrines of the Church. It is ideal for Catechists, those new to Catholic faith and those who want a reliable overview. I highly recommend this book ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0192830511, Paperback)

What do Catholics believe? How do they see their relationship to Christ and the Church, and what is the Christian life of virtue? This book provides a concise and intelligent introduction to Catholicism, covering the whole range of Catholic teaching: Christ, Church, sacraments, virtues, Mary, and the Trinity. Roderick Strange discusses the role of the papacy, its origin and influence, and analyses the developments in the Church since the Second Vatican Council. Clear and readable, the book is intended for those who are conscious of knowing too little about their faith, those who feel the need for reassurance, and non-Catholics who are curious about the teachings of the Church. This book is intended for students of religious studies; practising Catholics; those with a general interest in religion.
