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.

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.

  • The Lifelong Bond with a Noble Purpose

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 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.

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.
