    The Ancient Foundation of Our Faith

What kinds of books are in the Old Testament?

Do the laws of the Old Testament still apply to us today?

Who were some of its important priests, prophets, kings, and other major figures?

Now that we have the New Covenant and Gospels, how is the Old Testament still relevant to Christians?

Even for many believers, the Old Testament can be a dense, daunting collection of exotic names, places, and practices. Its sprawling histories can overwhelm us, its strict rules and rituals even scandalize us. 20 Answers: The Old Testament helps you make sense of it all—not only by breaking down its key themes, figures, and timelines in an easy-to-understand way but also by showing its beautiful continuity with the revelation of Jesus Christ.

The 20 Answers series from Catholic Answers offers hard facts, compelling arguments, and clear explanations of the most important topics facing the Church and the world—all in a compact, easy-to-read package.

    Teaching with Authority isn’t about understanding specific teachings of the Faith (even the complicated and misunderstood ones) but rather about understanding Catholic teaching itself. Where does the Church’s teaching authority come from? How do we weigh dogmas versus practices, doctrines versus disciplines, conciliar declarations versus papal interviews? How do we sort through the many kinds of ecclesial documents and determine their relative authority and relevance?
