The Power of Truth: The Challenges to Catholic Doctrine and Morals Today

Gerhard Cardinal Müller
Ignatius Press, 190 pages

Confused about something the pope said, or didn’t say, or what someone said he said? Or did something sound amiss from your pastor or small group leader? Cardinal Müller, former prefect of the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, sets the record straight here on what the Catholic Church actually teaches on contested issues – such as the indissolubility of marriage, contraception, ecumenical dialogue, the relation of faith to science, the Church’s ministry of reconciliation, the development of doctrine, and the teaching authority of the pope. Sometimes what we all need is a solid dose of clarity, and Cardinal Müller provides that here.

The Cardinal Muller Report: An Exclusive Interview on the State of the Church

Gerhard Cardinal Muller with Father Carlos Granados
Ignatius Press, 2017, 221 pages

Highly reminiscent of 1985’s The Ratzinger Report, this book features another clearspeaking German cardinal offering an insightful and penetrating interview on the present state of the Catholic Church. German Cardinal Gerhard Muller, previous head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, offers great clarity, truth, and much hope on the issues facing the family, society and the Church. The book is centered on the virtue of hope, so even as the cardinal candidly explores such controversial hot-button issues as abortion and gender ideology, the overall view is toward the hope that we have in Jesus Christ.
