What Catholics Believe (Pieper, Raskop)
By Josef Pieper and Heinz Raskop
What Catholics Believe, the second of Josef Pieper’s works to be published in English (1951), is a succinct and stirring statement of the Faith. Built around the twelve clauses of the Creed, the volume is composed of short essays on dogma, doctrine, and ethics, with a concluding reflection on Church history. Illuminative, deeply moving, and including the original, glowing introduction by Gerald B. Phelan, What Catholics Believe is the perfect resource for every believer and an excellent introduction for those interested in learning the good news of the Catholic faith.
