From the Back 25 Aug. 2003
By A. Curio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
(since Amazon doesn't give a description of the book, I will give you the information that comes with the book)
With this lucid and prfound commentary on the last three parts of the Catholic Catechism, Aidan Nichols provides one of the richest and most solidly-based accounted in English of how Catholic Christians should worship, behave and pray.
The Catechism forms the basis for Catholic pedagogy, and is designed for use in every home, parish and school. By consolidating the achievements of the Second Vatican Counsil and the post-Conciliar popes, the Catechism provides an essential point of reference for the modern church. In his concluding chapter, Aidan Nichols sets the Catechism against its historical background and explors the reason for its sometimes qualified reception from liberal critics.
An appendix on the works of art chosen by the Vatican to illustrate the text forms a fitting finale, weaving together both faith and culture in masterly fashion.
Aidian Nichols, O.P. is a member of the Domincian community at Blackfriars, Cambridge, and author of numerious works of theology and church history including "The Splender of Doctrine, a highly-praised commentary on the first part of the Catholic Catechism concerning the Creed.
