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.
