Following the success of Question Time 1 – 150 Questions and Answers on the Catholic Faith, first published in 2008, and Question Time 2, published in 2012, Fr Flader here offers yet another 150 questions and answers on everything Catholic: doctrine, the sacraments, moral life, prayer and devotions. They are taken from the author’s popular Question Time column in Sydney’s The Catholic Weekly. The column, now in its twelfth year, also appears in other Australian Catholic newspapers.

The book is written in a balanced, easy-to-read style and contains a wealth of information that will be invaluable for anyone who is interested in finding out more about the Catholic faith or who is in a position to hand on the faith to others: priests, teachers, catechists, parents, RCIA coordinators, sacramental program coordinators, recent converts...

“Fr John Flader’s book provides a useful and much-needed explanation of the faith drawn from the Scriptures, the Patristics and the Councils. Many enquirers in the faith and RCIA members will find the text helpful and informative. It is an ideal complement to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, to which it is amply referenced. I strongly recommend this excellent faith resource.” – Most Rev B.J. Hickey, Archbishop Emeritus of Perth

“At a time when what the Catholic Church believes and teaches seems perplexing, even absurd to many people, there is a need to explain clearly and simply why the Church believes and teaches what she does. We need a new apologetics. Here Fr John Flader offers a presentation of Catholic teaching which shows that, however strange it may seem to contemporary culture, Catholic teaching is the fruit of long experience and deep thought.”
– Most Rev. Mark Coleridge, Archbishop of Brisbane
