The Faith in Practice

By Philip Hughes
The Faith in Practice shows that Catholicism is not a mere collection of lofty ideas; it is a life to be lived and a means—the only means—to live that life. This book not only recalls how what faith offers to men and women of every age and place, but says also what we must do to obtain it and how we must act in order to live it. An accomplished preacher and professor, Hughes marries the fervor of the former with the sagacity of the latter in showing how each truth of the Christian faith has a role to play in the eminently practical matter of uniting us to our Creator.
“Being Christian is not the result of an ethical choice or a lofty idea, but the encounter with an event, a person, which gives life a new horizon and a decisive direction.” – Pope Benedict XVI
