The Catholic Way is an up-to-date reflection on what it means to be a Catholic today. It is a clear, intelligent, and authoritative guide to the perennial faith of the Catholic Church as presented in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Written by a bishop recognized internationally and nationally for his teaching and writing, and for producing video presentations on the Catholic faith, this indispensable book illuminates the riches of the Catholic Church, guiding readers — whether recent converts or lifelong Catholics — to a deeper understanding and appreciation of the Church.In concise, easy-to-understand language, Bishop Wuerl explains what the Church’s Catechism is and how its content touches our life.
