`The "door of faith" (Acts. 14:27) is always open for us, ushering us into the life of communion with God and offering entry into his Church'.
With these words, Pope Benedict XVI began his apostolic letter Porta Fidei for the indiction of the Year of Faith.
In praising his predecessor's `truly inspired intuition, Pope Francis has expressed his hope that the Year of Faith will serve `as a stimulus for each of us in our journey of faith:
In this short book Brendan Leahy and Declan Marmion, amongst others, offer a series of answers to some of the most commonly asked questions on faith, including:
- What is Christian Faith?
- How do Christians understand faith in other religions?
- Are science and religion compatible?
- Why go to Mass?
- What about women in the Church?
- Did Jesus have faith?
Faith Questions is the perfect companion for both those looking to celebrate the Year of Faith and those who are simply looking to further their understanding of the Christian faith.
