Completely revised and given a fresh new look, The Catholic Source Book contains the essential teachings and basic texts of Catholic beliefs, prayers, practices and traditions. It is filled with clear, concise, accurate information on scripture, sacraments, doctrine, the liturgical year, devotions, saints and heroes, councils and popes, church history, religious practices and customs, Catholic symbols, and much more. It also contains an extensive glossary and listings of religious words and terms.
Better than any almanac and more useful that an encyclopedia or dictionary, this is the one Catholic reference book that every home, parish and classroom needs. Catechumens and lifelong Catholics, teachers and students, adults and children will all find this book interesting, informative and essential both for reading and reference.
