Apologetics and Catholic Doctrine

£30.00

Product description

Apologetics and Catholic Doctrine, printed originally as two volumes by M.H. Gill & Son, Dublin, was a classic high school text in several countries for over forty years, and sold well over 450,000 copies. Its outstanding clarity, persuasiveness and comprehensiveness are totally unique. No popular textbook in English published since its last appearance in 1962 has repeated Sheehan's successful presentation of the Faith. This edition retains as much as possible of Sheehan's original whilst including some essential revision of the text. The principle has been to retain the original text as far as possible and to add, change or delete only where necessary. It is fully in conformity with the definitive edition of the Catechism of the Catholic Church published in 1997. For years, this book gave to many young Catholics the support and knowledge to sustain them in the Faith for a lifetime. They knew the Catholic religion, and they knew the reasons for it. Both teachers! and students who used it have testified to its lasting impression upon them. We hope that its re-issue will help to restore to today's disinherited younger generation their rightful heritage. The structure and sequence of the argument of Sheehan's Apologetics have a unique clarity and logical force. The exposition of the deposit of faith in Catholic Doctrine is clear and thorough. Objections are faced openly and honestly. Dr Sheehan's whole text breathes a loving confidence in the truth of the Faith founded on Him to Whom all honour and glory is due: Jesus Christ, the same, yesterday, today and forever. The new edition was launched in the New South Wales Parliament building on 24th July by Archbishop George Pell, the spiritual leader of Australia's Catholics.
"His Grace praised Apologetics and Catholic Doctrine as totally free of much of the muddled thinking in evidence in some quarters in recent years. He praised the quality and reliability of Father Peter Joseph's revision and expansion of the classic text to remove all anachronisms, take account of Conciliar Documents and post-Conciliar Papal teaching and to relate the work to the Catechism. His Grace strongly commended the work. The launch took place before a full house crowd of 150 people in the historic Jubilee Room of the New South Wales Parliament House.
