In his familiar, conversational style, Father Himes invites the reader to consider ten basic truths of Catholicism. Beginning with discussions of Trinity, Grace, the Incarnation and Salvation, Himes moves into an exploration of Church as the continuting presence of Jesus Christ in the world today. After discussing what Baptism and the baptismal commitment really involves, he focuses on Eucharist, showing the importance of the sacrament for personal growth and for the building of community. After discussing the Sacraments of Matrimony and Holy Orders, Himes explores the importance of the sacrament of reconciliation in the Christian community, and concludes with a discussion of the great gift to the church that we know as tradition.The audio edition of this book can be downloaded via Audible.Stock #: B16579

It was a gift

It was a gift, so I have no idea how to review this. I didn't read it myself.

Great entrance into the Catholic faith

Toward Understanding the Mystery

Michael Himes, to me, does the best job of moving me toward a deeper understanding of the mystery of God. He addresses all the traditional theological categories (grace, salvation, sin, incarnation, etc.), but unifies them all under the "umbrella" of Love and Trinity. He writes (and speaks!) in plain language that clearly takes me deeper into the mystery.

REV. MICHAEL HIMES holds a doctorate in theology from the University of Chicago. He has taught at the Seminary of the Immaculate Conception (Huntington, New York) and the University of Notre Dame. Currently he is on the faculty of Boston College.
