What Every Catholic Should Know
Who is God?
If we want to love God and make him the center of our lives, we would do well to settle this question at least in some small way. This book serves as a starting point for understanding what Christians mean when they say “God,” and to whom they are referring when they use this name. Part of the What Every Catholic Should Know series, God: What Every Catholic Should Know is born out of the recognition that God is central to the Faith, but we encounter misconceptions about God all the time. In an effort to clear up these misconceptions, this book addresses three major concepts—the nature of God, the Trinity, and the Incarnation—so that we may strengthen our faith and our ability to communicate it to other people.
About the Book
In God: What Every Catholic Should Know, author Elizabeth Klein guides readers through often complicated and difficult waters to a clear understanding of the Church’s rich teachings on God. Perfect for Catholics both young and old, God will become a “must read” for those seeking to take their Catholic faith to the next level.
The new What Every Catholic Should Know series is intended for the average faithful Catholic who wants to know more about Catholic faith and culture. The authors in this series take a panoramic approach to the topic of each book aimed at a non-specialist but enthusiastic readership. Forthcoming titles planned for this series include: literature, salvation, mercy, history, art, music, and philosophy.

Author of The Case for Jesus: The Biblical and Historical Evidence for Christ
Elizabeth Klein has written a splendid book. Its readable style and accessible presentation belie its sophistication and depth, and make for an introductory book that is also engaging, even for advanced readers. The last chapter is sublime and alone worth the price of the book.
