Publisher's Summary

Every week Catholics proclaim to believe in "one holy, Catholic, and apostolic church", but what does this really mean?

At its heart the Catholic Church is a product of God's initiative: It is a dimension of our relationship with the God, whom we come to know through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. By exploring the theology of the church and the faith that it evokes, you will encounter the challenge and possibility of living faith in the church today.

Under the guidance of leading theologian Fr. Richard Lennan, you will explore the impact of Vatican II and how it shaped our understanding of the church. Through exploring the ideas of such noted theologians as Yves Congar and Walter Kasper, you will gain new insights into the theology of the church.

As you look at the role of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit in the church, you will understand that God's presence in the church embodies constant call, challenge, and guidance. The church, then, is not simply an institution but the very essence of the Catholic faith. In analyzing the relationship between the church and the wider world, you will explore the possibilities that God enables and his universal call for us to share in the life of the church.

Excellent Content but Distracting Audio

Lennan offers a thorough and engaging introduction to the essential ecclesiastical issues facing the Catholic Church in the 21st century. He provides an insightful context and background information necessary to engage these issues. The audio suffers, however, from frequent and distracting, inexplicable gaps in the recording. Nothing is lost during these gaps but this recurring technical problem is highly distracting and may discourage all but the most determined listener.
