Item Description...
Many writers explain the Catholic faith. David Scott ignites a passion for it.

In his new book, David Scott, biographer of Mother Teresa (A Revolution of Love), presents the Catholic faith as a spiritually fulfilling, intellectually coherent answer to the most important human questions: Why are we here? What can we know of God? How should we live? The Catholic Passion is not an argument for the Catholic faith but a journey to the heart of it, a richly rewarding reflection on prayer, the Bible, sacraments, the Church, and God-made-human in Jesus Christ. These are mysteries, Scott concedes, but living mysteries that pulsate with meaning for us. "We see miracles every day," he writes. "We see lives changed by the encounter with the risen Jesus."

Scott illuminates the Catholic mysteries with the insights of great Catholic figures of modern timesthe American writer Andre Dubus, the French composer Olivier Messiaen, the Chinese human rights activist Henry Wu, the French martyr Charles de Foucauld, the American reformer Dorothy Day, and others. He directs his keenly perceptive words to contemporary peoplereaders, young and old, who seek a faith that burns in the heart as it enlightens the mind

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Once a Catholic ... Always a Catholic  Sep 26, 2006
Roman Catholic or Byztanine (Eastern Rite) Catholic ... it is as true as the statement that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree ... anyone who has diverged from their original Catholic upbringing and perhaps seek to integrate early spiritual lessons with their adult selves ...would find this a very helpful guidance back into the fold. All roads do lead to Rome.
Excellent "rediscovery"  Sep 15, 2006
David Scott has written a very capable introduction to the Catholic faith without, as he says, quoting dogmatic documents or church law. Instead, Scott writes practically and biblically (not to be understood in a "preachy" manner) in presenting the Catholic faith.

This books makes an excellent companion to Thomas Howard's *On Being Catholic* (Ignatius Press).
Excellent Guide to Catholicism  Jul 31, 2006
Forget about the infamous volume presumptuously entitled "Catholicism" by Richard McBrien of Notre Dame that distorts the faith. Scott's book gives you a real guide to Catholicism. He doesn't get bogged down in polemics and argumentative apologetics. He presents the Catholic faith as a whole in its passionate urgency about our destiny and the destiny of the world. Scott accurately presents Catholic teaching. He is orthodox. In addition, Scott sprinkles the book with quotations from great Catholics and from the Scriptures so that you are exposed to the best. For non-Catholics, the book is a great overview of Catholicism. Catholics should not hesitate to give this book to non-Catholics and to those entering RCIA. Long-time Catholics will also do well to read it to remind themselves of what they may have forgotten or taken for granted.
relax and enjoy  Jul 5, 2006
No politics or triumphalism here, not even much that 'cradle Catholics' won't recognize, just essentials of our relationship with God, expressed with simplicity and great beauty. The author says right off that this will not be a rehash of technical catechism, and keeps his word. This is not a sterile legalistic text, and doesn't deal in negatives. This is a 100% positive living account, drawn from the lives of real people, from 1st-century martyrs to Eugene O'Neill and Dorothy Day. A work of love, of beauty and calm spirituality, it brought me peace. Highly recommended.
Passion is no ordinary word  Apr 24, 2006
David Scott is interested in Catholicism as made vividly manifest by artists, poets, and saints. In "The Catholic Passion," he seeks to get to the romantic, dramatic, visionary, vibrant core of Catholicism, in all its cultural manifestations. It's a rewarding and rewarded effort.

This book takes as its starting point Chesterton's assertion that the most perilous and exciting path is not heresy but Christian orthodoxy. Scott is not interested in detailing doctrine and dogma, but in dramatizing and fleshing out the faith as it is embodied and lived out in the Church. Scott tells stories of people such as Blessed Charles de Foucauld, Dorothy Day, Francis Thompson, Eugene O'Neill, and St. Catherine of Genoa. Certainly not all are saints -- some are not even believers. But all stories lead the reader to an intimation of what it is that draws so many of us to the Church.

The "passion" of the title is a word that evokes romance, suffering, and engagement. Scott shows us how this passion is a part of life as lived, with a voice that is committed and honest. His words give us not a set of catechetical propositions, but a body, a corpus of Catholicism that is set before the eye of the reader. If you get a chance, pick it up -- it's an excellent, enjoyable, nourishing read.
