About this item

From the most basic terms to the structures and practices of the Church, this book offers a plain-speaking introduction to Roman Catholicism. Now in a second edition, it contains new sections on relations with other faiths, coverage of recent controversies in the Church and an expanded section on social teaching. It covers:

  • Roman Catholic beliefs and traditions

  • practices and devotional life – rituals, prayer, mass

  • Church structures and authorities – from Vatican to parish church

  • Church hierarchies and people – from bishops to the laity

  • the role of the Church in society.

With a glossary, further reading sections and reference to official documents of the Church, this is the perfect guide for students approaching the study of Roman Catholicism for the first time.
