After all these years, this delightful book is still one of the most powerful presentations of Catholic teaching ever written. In a series of informal dialogues, Father Smith explains what the Church teaches, and Mr. Jackson, an uninformed but intelligent listener, asks all the hard questions. This latest edition has been sensitively updated without altering the charm and style of the original.
