The appendix contains a treasury of Catholic prayers and devotions. Discussion questions and activities at the end of each chapter make Invitation to Catholicism ideal for RCIA and adult study groups. It is perfect for Catholics who want to move beyond the basic knowledge they received as children in religion classes. It offers a contemporary explanation of Catholicism that is grounded in the history and traditions of the church. Non-Catholics will find it a handy guide to what Catholics believe today.
