Item Description...
An accessible guide to the world's largest Christian denomination summarizes the basic beliefs, practices, rituals, teachings, and traditions of Catholicism. Original.

Publishers Description
There are more than one billion Catholics in the world, and each one has a similar set of basic beliefs and practices that he or she follows. Some of the teachings of Catholicism are thousands of years old, while others are more recent. So what is the Catholic culture like and what do they believe? Catholicism For Dummies answers these and many other questions.

Whether you're a Catholic or not, you may be totally clueless or just unaware of some aspects of Catholic traditions, history, doctrine, worship, devotion, or culture. No sweat. Regardless of whether you're engaged, married, related to a Catholic, or just curious about what Catholics really do believe, this book is for you.

Catholicism For Dummies is not a catechism or religious textbook, but a casual, down-to-earth introduction for non-Catholics and reintroduction for Catholics. It gives commonsense explanations so that the next time you're invited to a Catholic wedding, Baptism, funeral, Confirmation, or First Communion, you won't be totally confused. You'll also discover other important topics that can help you better understand the Catholic culture—from morality and devotions to worship and liturgy. This book will familiarize you with Catholicism by showing you:

  • What it means to be a Catholic: traditions, prayers, beliefs, and holidays
  • Who is who in the Catholic hierarchy
  • How Catholics worship
  • What the Seven Sacraments and Ten Commandments are
  • The book regarded as the holiest to Catholics: The Bible
  • The Church's stand on some sticky issues

Catholicism For Dummies presents a rich tapestry and history of the Catholic faith—from devotions to doctrines. This intelligent and faithful look at Catholicism will open your eyes to this religion and answer many of the questions you may have about it.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
great read and reference  Nov 30, 1999
What a great gift idea for RCIA members! I'm a life-long Catholic and I found plenty of new info. It's an easy read but full of substance. I especially appreciated the history section and the simple explainations of...well...just about everything! Very non-abrasive for non-Catholics yet not the least bit watered down.
Easy Reading on Catholicism  Nov 30, 1999
Easy to understand, up-to-date and informative. Excellent resource for those considering conversion to the Catholic Faith or those returning after a long absence.
Good Overview of Catholicism  Nov 30, 1999
Do you read the entire Catecism of the Catholic Church, or Catholicism for Dummies? I'm a "returning" Catholic who last worked on Catholic issues while enjoying 12 years of Catholic School and is now leading a small ministry at my church. It was a good refresher. I liked that the book was reviewed by the church and content approved as accurate. It points out the similarities and differences of the protestant Bibles, something I've never seen explained before. I plan to use it as one of my three core resources: The Bible, The Catechism of the Catholic Church, and Catholicism for Dummies. Good to have all three to reference depending upon my audience. I'm giving it 5 Stars because its concise, easy to read, organized, informative and does a good job of covering the major points.
A practical "how to" guide to the Church  Nov 30, 1999
If you are looking for really practical information on the Church's practices, choose "Catholicism for Dummies" as your reference source. Want to know how to pray the Rosary? Need to know what really goes on in Mass? This is such an entertaining and easy to understand book. Use it as a "refresher" course or a learning tool if you are considering conversion. It is your beginner's guide to theology, practices/rites and the history of the church. It is an excellent starting point for anyone with questions. Highly recommended.
Good for Happy Catholics, too.  Nov 30, 1999
I am a retired cradle-Catholic who never attended a public school until I was 21 (FSU). This is a wonderful book. It has helped me experience my faith anew. It is so fascinating, enlightening and easy to read that I have bought 6 (so far) and given them to people as part of my evangelization tools. It is my intention to buy 4 per month for such purposes.
