Pope John Paul II pointed out that it is through the arts that religious truths are made tangible--"making perceptible…the world of the spirit, of the invisible, of God." The Catholic Spirit presents the truths of Catholicism in the context of the arts. Christ, creed, prayer, sacrament, and morality are some of the topics addressed. Organized around the four pillars of the Catechism, the text includes primary source material with context and background. Among the authors included are Flannery O'Connor, Leo Tolstoy, Graham Greene, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Dorothy Day, Victor Hugo, and more. Paperback, 6 x 9, 472 pages. (©2009)
