about

'The richness of the Church's past is a liberation, not a straitjacket. It is a source of confidence in launching into and uncharted future.' Eamon Duffy is both a practising Roman Catholic and distinguished historian, whose writings have changed the course of English Reformation studies. In Faith of Our Fathers, Duffy¿considers the range of Catholic belief and practice, from prayer for the dead and veneration of the Eucharist, to the place of Mary¿and the authority of the Pope. In the process he explores the ways in which¿religious tradition can be a vital Christian resource in the turbulent modern world.

'A¿lively and vivid assessment' Universe

'Erudite without being didactic, reflective and personal without being uncomfortably confessional... Duffy's exploration is lucid and sincere.' Doctrine & Life
