Leonard Foley wrote Believing in Jesus to help "born Catholics" come to a deeper understanding of the beliefs and practices they have held all their lives and to help those who approach the Catholic Church for the first time. He wrote, "I hope this book will help some scared and scarred people and challenge others."
Believing in Jesus captures the Christians continuing journey of faith, ever new, ever alive - yet always founded on Gods steadfast love for us. In 27 chapters written in a lively style, Foley covers the complete spectrum of Catholic faith, leading the reader from early Old Testament times through a world "starting over" in Jesus to the endtime, when Jesus will come again and we will share fully in his life.
This fourth edition is current with Church documents and events, including cross-references to the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Discussion questions and an expanded resources section will prove invaluable to individuals and groups wanting to explore further the faith they profess.
Leonard Foley, OFM, was a popular retreat master and speaker on Catholic identity and Franciscan topics; he also wrote the bestseller Believing in Jesus, which has sold more than 500,000 copies.
The discussion questions incorporated into each chapter cry for this book not just to be read but to be read with others. I would highly recommend this book fro the book shelf of every teacher in a Catholic school or parish religious education program, for every team member of the catechumenate process, for all members of small Christian communities, for every Christian home, for any adult who wants a comprehensive overview of the faith.
