about this book

Dynamic Catholicism is a comprehensive, plain-language guide that provides students with a basic introduction to the Catholic faith and the historical evolution of the Church's teachings. Bokenkotter traces the myriad ways throughout history in which the Church has answered questions like: Who is Jesus? Or Mary? Who are the saints? What is marriage, divorce, homosexuality? What of social justice? The relationship of conscience to papal authority? "My aim," Bokenkotter says, "has been to sift through and select what seems most helpful and enlightening for those who seek an understanding of the essentials of Catholicism today."
