“I finally understand the Catholic faith!”
That's what many around the world say after watching the acclaimed Symbolon series: The Explanation of the Catholic Faith. Now, the series host and renowned author Edward Sri takes us through the key aspects of the Catholic faith with the same clarity and beauty that he did in the video documentary, answering common questions, such as:
- Why do I need the Church? Is it enough to be only spiritual?
- Don't impose your morals on me! Who are you to judge me?
- Do we really have the responsibility to help the poor?
- Why do Catholics worship Mary?
- Why should I confess my sins to a priest?
- How can I believe that the Bible is really inspired by God?
This book is excellent for formation programs for adults, families, and RCIA. The easy-to-read style appeals to both the intellect and the heart of the reader and leads him to understand and live deeply the Catholic faith.
Praise for Symbolon: The Explanation of the Catholic Faith
This book will be a discovery for many people. Dr. Sri presents divine love as the guiding thread of the logic of the Catholic faith, which gives meaning to everything we believe as Catholics. Its presentation is clear and simple and goes straight to the heart of the subject (and the readers).

The Church is the bride whose beauty will speak for itself when the veil is removed. That is what Dr. Sri does in this book that is characterized by his charity and clarity, while revealing the richness and harmony of the Catholic faith.
