The Layman (Catholic and non-Catholic) seriously asking himself about the world and existence, about life beyond earth and death, about the creation of a supreme being, will find here a compact, satisfying ""summa"" of the basic issues with which he should be concerned. Any who are not satisfied with their ""catechism"" understanding of the Faith will find in this book new appreciation and breadth in keeping with their maturity and consequently enlarged needs. Dr. Van Doornik's scope is broad, beginning with Who Is God through analysis of the key elements of the Expectation of Christ, Hedemption by Christ, Union In Christ, Sanctification In Christ, and Glorification With Christ. Recent events, including the movement towards unity, are interwoven. Many of the thoughts expressed will stimulate broader exploration. The total result is a remarkable summation and review of the meaning Catholicism can have for any man, regardless of the individual's sophistication or lack of it.
