For anyone interested in learning more about the Catholic faith, Journey into Truth is ideal. Based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church and written by popular educator and columnist Fr John Flader, it explains the principal teachings of the Catechism in a way anyone can understand and shows how these teachings can be lived out in ordinary life. This book is the text for the Journey into Truth DVD series, which features 24 half-hour talks by Fr Flader enhanced by beautiful high-definition film clips, images, and quotations. The book contains the full text of the talks plus an introduction to each session, questions for discussion and a series of simple points to remember. Ideal for RCIA groups, adult faith formation groups, youth groups, teachers, catechists and families.
“Fr John Flader is a master teacher. Much of his priestly ministry has been devoted to the lucid and engaging explanation of the faith. His depth of knowledge and attractive presentation are readily seen in Journey into Truth. I recommend it to all who wish to undertake their own journey of faith.”
– Most Rev. Julian Porteous, Archbishop of Hobart
“The image of a ‘journey’ speaks vividly of the Christian’s faith in Jesus Christ, who is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Journey into Truth maps the way forward, always towards that eternal home, the place the Lord Jesus has prepared for each of us. I highly recommend it and pray that many will grow in their faith through it.”
– Most Rev. Peter Elliott, Auxiliary Bishop of Melbourne, Director of the John Paul II Institute for Marriage and the Family
“Journey into Truth presents the beauty of the Catholic faith in a lively and accurate way and is a welcome Australian addition to such excellent resources as Evangelium, The Why Course and Father Barron’s Catholicism series. Father Flader’s gift in drawing heart and mind to grasp the truths of faith has long been apparent in his adult education classes and regular newspaper columns. This most recent and comprehensive work is highly recommended.”
– Most Rev. Geoffrey Jarrett, Bishop of Lismore
“A superb book, beautifully presented and rich in content. I hope many will use it to learn the Catholic faith in depth.” – Michael Willesee, Television journalist
