This book is for Catholic laity wishing a deeper grasp of their beliefs. It revisits and opens up traditional teachings, removing cluttering features and proposing what seems essential and simpler. The reality of Eternal Life is not something met only in heaven but is experienced in our lives now. Another principle running throughout is that the eternity one experiences in resurrection shares in God’s unchanging nature, a fullness of life where before and after lack meaning. Some of the revisited beliefs include: How does the Bible work? How is prayerfulness maintained? Is there a Purgatory involving suffering? And what happens when I die or when the world ends?
