The Great Mysteries responds with passion and skill to the growing concerns of spiritual seekers and teachers of the Catholic faith. In radical, refreshing fashion, Greeley explores 12 essential questions of faith and grounds them in human experience. With the skill of a master storyteller and the passion of a deep believer, Greeley contemplates questions at the heart of human life-is there any purpose in my life? Are there any grounds for hope? Why is there evil in the world?-and reveals how the symbols, rituals, teachings and mysteries of Catholicism both shape and respond to these profound uncertainties.

Andrew M. Greeley

Andrew M. Greeley is a priest, distinguished sociologist, and best-selling author. With more than 20 million copies of his books in print, he is one of America's best-known novelists and most quoted authorities on religion and culture. A professor of social sciences at the University of Arizona, he is also research associate at the National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago.

Within the Catholic Church, Greeley's staunchly against-the-grain stances on such hot-button issues as birth control, female clergy and abortion, as well as his sex-and-corruption-tinged novels, have made enemies and waves. -- Mike Thomas Chicago Sun-Times This deceptively simple catechesis is actually an invaluable primer of Catholic beliefs and traditions that will intrigue both the faithful and the merely curious.
