$19.99 $14.99

Description: The unity of the faithful is essential if the world is to believe in Christ’s divine mission. The Church, being Christ’s mystical body, propagates His salvific activity throughout time. To belong to Christ, then, means to belong to his Body, the Church. Yet there are many outside and even within the Church who find these consequences unsettling. What of those, it is asked, of good faith outside the fold of the Church? What of those who are not her members, yet through no fault of their own? In “Is there Salvation Outside the Catholic Church” you will discover the profound and valiant theological reflection of the Church on this crucial question distilled into easily-grasped concepts and applications. This small treatise presents only what is essential for responding to the objections and resolving the difficulties brought to bear against the ecclesiology of the Catholic Church. With this digest, Catholics at every level of learning will be emboldened in the faith which all are called to proclaim.

 

From the Preface: “To many the axion “Outside the Church there is no salvation” has proven a veritable bugbear…Many there are who wish, though they do not openly avow it, that the Catholic Church would be silent on this point…They do not see that the mighty axion, as traditionally interpreted, insist…on communion with the body of the Church as indispensably necessary.”
