Publisher's Summary

The acclaimed Catholic writer and apologist Frank Sheed presents one of the most clear and outstanding explanations of the central doctrines of the Christian faith ever written. He starts with a compelling case of good reasons for anyone to study theology, and the wonderful rewards that accompany such a pursuit.
After explaining how God is Spirit, Sheed examines God's infinity and man's creation from nothing. He then covers in depth such key doctrines as the Trinity, the Fall, the Incarnation and Redemption, the Mystical Body, Grace and the Sacraments, and the Last Things. For those to whom these doctrines seem formidable, Sheed brings a fresh approach with lucid and carefully reasoned prose. His beautiful insights and clear explanations will help stir our minds to the inspiring truth of the spiritual realities at the center of human existence.

Must read/listen

I recently completed a Masters degree in Theology and yet still found this book immensely helpful. Frank Sheed, in witty and compelling prose, helped fill in a number of gaps in my theological knowledge and provided a helpful synthesis of the whole. Kate does a good job of narrating his work clearly and quickly. It is great to have it in audible format for quick and easy review - which is something you'll want to do! I highly highly recommend it!
