Item Description...
Teaching the Catholic faith can be quite a challenge if you lack an adequate understanding of the Catholic faith yourself. And given the fact that the Catechism of the Catholic Church is over 900 pages in length, it's no wonder that Catholics struggle to comprehend their faith. A Well-Built Faith-creatively developed around a construction theme-makes it easy for Catholics to know what they believe and to feel confident in sharing those beliefs.This 18-chapter book by master teacher Joe Paprocki follows the structure of the four pillars of the Catechism of the Catholic Church (Creed, Sacraments, Morality, and Prayer), making it a wonderful resource for learning about and teaching the Catholic faith. Highly informative and very fun at the same time, A Well-Built Faith is a must-have tool for developing the Catholic faith.

Publishers Description

Nail down the facts, tear down the barriers The Catechism of the Catholic Church is over nine hundred pages long, so it comes as no surprise that many Catholics think of their faith as complex--and certainly too complex to share with others "A Well-Built Faith"--cleverly developed around a construction theme--makes it easy and flat-out fun for any Catholic to know what they believe and to feel confident in sharing those beliefs with others.
The eighteen-chapter book--at times profound, at times humorous, always practical--follows the structure of the four pillars of the Catechism of the Catholic Church (Creed, Sacraments, Morality, and Prayer). Taking otherwise difficult topics about the Catholic faith and making them accessible and relevant to the lives of average Catholics, acclaimed author and teacher Joe Paprocki does so in a way that never compromises the rich depth of Catholic teaching and tradition.
From the Trinity to the seven sacraments, from the Ten Commandments to the Lord's Prayer, "A Well-Built Faith "will help Catholics nail down the facts of the faith and tear down the barriers keeping them from sharing their beliefs with others.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Great Read and Wonderful Resource  May 20, 2010
No matter how much I know about my faith, there is always a hunger to learn more. This book presents the faith of our Church in a practical, easy to follow style with nice everyday language. The chapters are cleverly organized around a construction theme that adds nice structure to the book.

Though much of the information presented in this book is not new to me, it is presented in a new way that made it interesting to re-learn and absorb. The author addresses our faith in four sections: Creed, Sacraments, Moral Life, and Prayer. The last section on Prayer: Praying Faith really spoke to me. Mr. Paprocki defines prayer as "...our awareness of the divine presence in our lives. Prayer is our response to God's undying efforts to reach our hearts." A simple statement; so beautiful to mediate on. This section does a great job identifying the different types of prayers used by Catholics and offers practical examples to help you recognize all the various ways we answer St. Paul's call to pray without ceasing.

In my opinion, this book would be a wonderful gift for anyone interested in the Catholic faith or entering RCIA . It is also a great tool and resource for all of us cradle Catholics who want to brush up on the "why" of our faith or learn things we've missed along the way. A Well Built Faith gives you the knowledge and confidence to be able to share your faith with your friends, family and children.

This book will remain on my nightstand for a long time as a valuable resource as questions of faith arise or when a refresher is needed.
An Essential for Any Active Catholic  Aug 6, 2009
In an age when misinformation surrounding the Catholic faith is rampant, even among practicing Catholics, the need for clear, concise explanation is essential. In "A Well-Built Faith", Paprocki has provided just that. He outlines the faith in an accessible, clear manner, with relevant examples and an overall contemporary approach. Furthermore, Paprocki anticipated what are likely "hot-button" issues among Catholics and non-Catholics alike, and addressed them in a clear, sometimes fun, manner.

But this is not simply a religious textbook; it's also an enjoyable read. So for anyone questioning the Catholic faith, wonder "why do we/they do that?", or are simply curious as to what it means to be a modern Catholic, "A Well-Built Faith" is an excellent choice. In fact, I even plan to utilize it in my upcoming Faith Formation classes!
A Well-Built Faith: A Catholic's Guide to Knowing and Sharing What We Believe  Feb 24, 2009
The BEST Book I have ever learned from and read on the pillars of the Catholic Church. Very easy to read and understand with updated humor and real application.
Excellent resource!  Sep 29, 2008
This book was quite enjoyable. I especially like the fact that the book helps people see how their faith relates to their everyday life. I just placed an order for our adult faith formation group.
Great Stuff!  Sep 18, 2008
New catechists are always looking for material to help them understand the teachings of the church. Joe Paprocki provides explanations, scripture and prayer to help the everyday Catholic find the answers they need to live their traditions and share their faith. The cartoons, stories and jokes are great, too!
I have 127 catechists and bought each one a book! Thanks, Joe!
