About this item

If you are confused by the array of conflicting teachings that claim to be Catholic, or have found the Catechism too difficult to read, then this book will give you clear, concise, and readable explanations of the foundational truths for living the Catholic faith.

Organizing by topic, LaBarbara has pulled from countless Church documents to present a timely and compelling synthesis of not only what the Church teaches, but also how those teachings fit together perfectly in a true unity of faith and truth.

Read these pages, and you’ll learn so much more about who God is and who you are, and how fully embracing the Church’s teachings will lead you to truly live the glorious freedom of the children of God.

"John LaBarbara has written an excellent book on apologetics that can be a great instrument to bring people to conversion and others to go deeper in their practice of the Catholic faith."

"LaBarbara slowly unfolds the richness and reasonableness of Catholic faith in ways that are accessible and informative. More books like this are needed by the Church today."

"John LaBarbara has written a clear, simple (in the best sense) and compelling book, vivid in style and rich in content, that explains what Catholics believe... As Jesus himself said, the truth will make us free; and this text is a great tool in that task of Christian freedom."

I am a licensed therapist who helps people connect to truths of our faith to find healing. I found Mr. LaBarbara's work to be clear, decisive, and on point to the kind of healing needed by many due to the lack of knowledge commonly experienced by most Catholics. The practical insights are clearly presented and deeply rooted in Church teaching. This book is a simple yet profound connection to the words of our Lord himself said "you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free" John 8:32

John LaBarbara hits a home run with this well written down-to-earth review of what every Catholic should know about his religion. For cradle Catholics it is a great refresher; for those interested in learning about the faith, it is a thoughtfully developed primer. After I read it, I got several more copies to pass along to family and friends. I wholeheartedly recommend it.

Great gift for someone just learning about Catholicism!
I had the opportunity to take a small group of men through Knowing God's Love. It was excellent! It communicated the central aspects of God's desire for relationship with each of us, while also getting into the practical aspects of how that relationship impacts how we live our lives in a broken world. Very easy read with many takeaways. Many perspectives changed in the men as we read this. It will impact the well-formed Catholic but is particularly effective with those earlier in their faith journey.

At last! Clarity, inspiration, and hope ... all in one place.
At last! Clarity, inspiration, and hope ... all in one place. John LaBarbara has cut through the fog and offered us the clearest presentation of Christ and his Gospel, the Truth that sets us free, and the reasons for HOPE in our challenging times. Break through the confusion and read these liberating Church teachings that bring wisdom and insight, and learn practical ways to walk the narrow path that leads to life. If you love Christ and seek to bring others to him, buy this book, study it, and share this encouraging message with family and friends. This is a priceless little gem.
