Recognizing that the level of understanding of the basic tenets of the Catholic faith by Catholics has steadily declined, Our Sunday Visitor identified an opportunity to help and offered a twelve-part series that responded to the need for more catechesis. The series, authored by David Werning, ran monthly in OSV Newsweekly throughout 2017. The series has been gathered in this book, Catholic Faith Foundations.
Beginning with the Church's basic foundation, Werning explores the four marks of the church: one, holy, Catholic and aspostolic. He continues with God's revelation of Himself through creation, the significance of Scripture and tradition, and the mystery of the Trinity. He teaches about what it means to be a member of the Church, the meaning of vocation, morality, and conscience. The final sections of the series address the call to love, what it means to pray, understanding the Communion of the Saints, and an explanation of "the four last things".
Though the book is subtitled "Back to the Basics", the content offers much to ponder about the "what" and "why" of the Catholic faith. This book is great for a cover-to-cover, in-depth study that you will then want to keep handy as a resource for reference.
