Reviews - What do customers think about The Gift of Faith: A Question and Answer Catechism Version of the Teaching of Christ?
Comprehensive, approachable and throughly orthodox Jun 12, 2004
Based on the Pittsburgh bishop's classic "The Teaching of Christ", Bishop Wuerl's "The Gift of Faith" is a condensed Q&A catechism in full conformity with and indexed to the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
The Q&A format both focuses the subject matter and allows readers to commit the lessons to memory. It's an excellent resource for RCIA, group study or anyone who seeks a comprehensive yet very approachable overview of the Faith.
The book doesn't dodge tough questions, and it addresses all the hot button issues that Catholics often do not hear from pulpits and parish catechists, e.g., contraception, abortion, priestly celibacy, and human sexuality.
