  • Ascending in Hope

What are the different kinds of prayer?

I prayed for something and God didn’t grant it. Why?

Doesn’t the Bible condemn repetitious prayers like the rosary?

Why do I have to say traditional prayers in a church instead of just talking to God in my own way?

Prayer is the Christian’s source of strength and peace, a channel of grace, a medium of joy and consolation. By it we open our minds to the One who made us and loves us, to give him praise and thanks and to tell him our needs. And we also open our hearts to him, asking him for wisdom and direction in our life. But prayer doesn’t always come easily, especially when we have questions about how or why we should do it. 20 Answers: Prayer addresses some of the most common questions, giving you profitable understanding of what prayer is, strategies for praying more often in a busy day, and ways to advance in prayer toward its goal: deeper, more loving communion with God.

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.

  • Reconciling All Truth

Is faith reasonable?

What can we know about God through reason alone?

How can we make sense of Christian beliefs that seem to defy logic and science?

What can I say to people who claim that the God of the Bible is cruel and irrational?

We believe that God is one, and so is his truth. The mysteries he has revealed to the world, the teachings that his Church professes and safeguards, and the conclusions that we reach by the light of natural reason all harmonize and enrich each other. But in a world skeptical of faith and often too clouded by sentiment and sin to wield reason, it can seem that religious truth and rational truth must be enemies—or at least from different worlds. 20 Answers: Faith and Reason shows you how to restore the unity of truth that is our only basis for living a coherent life of the mind and of the soul, helping you tackle both secular skeptics and your own nagging doubts.

How did Protestant Christianity begin and spread?

What are the distinctive beliefs of Protestantism, and how do they differ from Catholic teaching?

How do “non-denominational Bible churches” compare with the “mainline” branches of Protestantism?

Why are some Protestant groups anti-Catholic, and what can I do to foster better relations with them and help them understand Catholicism?

Since the Reformation, Christianity has been split into many competing groups, each differing from the others but almost all claiming to represent the authentic gospel of Jesus Christ. How did that happen? And how can we better understand—and work to heal—those divisions? 20 Answers: Protestantism gives you a perfect beginner’s guide to the historical roots of Protestantism, its liturgical and doctrinal flavors, and its impact on the evolution of global (and especially American) Christian culture. Most of all, it offers proven advice for finding common ground with Protestants while sharing your own Catholic faith.

  • The Lifelong Bond with a Noble Purpose

What is Christian marriage all about?

How can I know if I have found the right person to marry?

Is it true that divorced people are excluded from the Church?

Why is the Catholic Church seemingly obsessed with people’s sexual sins?

Whether you’re married, preparing for marriage, or just concerned about the future of our world, you’ll want to know more about the fundamental human institution that binds people together and makes a culture thrive.

20 Answers: Marriage and Sex provides a solid introduction to what marriage is, why it’s important, and how to make it work. It also gives sure guidance through today’s minefield of sexual sin and confusion, showing God’s way to marital happiness—and holiness.

20 Answers: Marriage and Sex is simply an outstanding primer on the truth, goodness, and beauty of marriage for anyone of good will. Firmly rooted on the meaning of natural and Sacramental marriage, Todd Aglialoro deftly weaves together the Scriptures - Old Testament and New - with the Catechism, history, social science, and the saints into a compelling witness to all that God has created for us. It is eminently readable because it asks and answers the questions that people are actually asking. I know. I have heard them over the past 25 years of marriage, NFP, and Theology of the Body ministry. I now include 20 Answers: Marriage and Sex as one of my Top 10 resources for marriage preparation and enrichment. It is that good. Faithful Catholics will recognize the traditional language and phrases of marriage and sexuality, but will now “connect the dots” to understand marriage within the tapestry of the whole Salvation Story. Aglialoro does a wonderful job rescuing difficult, countercultural teachings on marriage and sex from mere “imposed morality" by inviting the reader to see the Church’s teachings as logical, reasonable, coherent, and true. And not just true, but beautiful and hopeful! Even difficult topics such as divorce, adultery, contraception, and same-sex “marriage” can be understood in light of what we hope for in love, life, now and forever. I joyfully recommend 20 Answers: Marriage and Sex as a resource for everyone working in marriage, family, youth, and young adult ministry. - Damon Owens, Executive Director, joytob.org

What are the basics of Jewish belief and practice?

How does modern Judaism differ from the Hebrew religion of the Old Testament?

Is Christianity to blame for historic anti-Semitism and for not doing enough to stop the Holocaust?

What should we do—and not do—to foster constructive dialogue with Jews about Jesus and the Catholic Church?

Judaism is the ancient foundation of Christianity, the religion of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob… and Jesus. Yet many Catholics, perhaps intimidated by its unfamiliar terms and traditions, remain ignorant of its beliefs. 20 Answers: Judaism dispels that ignorance with a helpful overview of Judaism’s history, its forms of worship and sources of doctrine, its various movements from biblical times to today, and more.
