You're on the spot. Someone wants you to explain some aspect of Catholic belief. Do you really think the Pope is infallible? Why do Catholics pray to Mary? Where do sacraments come from? What do you think of the Bible? Are you saved? You wish some well-informed Catholic friend was around to help with the answer.
Or perhaps you are asking the questions yourself. Where do Catholic beliefs come from? Does it make any difference to pray for the dead? Where do Praying the rosary and honoring the saints fit into a biblical faith?
Catholic and Christian contains the answers you need. It is a readable and concise summary of commonly misunderstood Catholic beliefs-the teachings and practices that often don't get much attention in Sunday sermons and in religious education, but which puzzle Catholics and non-Catholics alike. It is a book for all Catholics who want to know more about their faith.
