Into All Truth presents the basic beliefs of the Catholic Church, beginning with the Resurrection. That extraordinary event prompted Jesus' followers to reflect on his identity and mission, which in turn led them to see the one God as an eternal communion of Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The Good News of the Catholic Church is that God invites every man and woman into this communion.
With extensive use of the Bible, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and the documents of the Second Vatican Council, Into All Truth explains clearly and succinctly the dogmas of the Catholic Church that flow from her faith in the Trinity. Each dogma is traced back to the faith of the first followers of Jesus, and its development over time is explored.
Each chapter also outlines the implications of a given belief. The Resurrection, for example, has as much to say about human destiny as about the ultimate fate of Jesus.
This book is intended for the general reader, Catholic and non-Catholic alike. An online study guide is available for use with this book. It is an ideal way for young adults, and older adults as well to deepen their understanding of the Catholic faith.
