Teaching with Authority : How to Cut Through Doctrinal Confusion & Understand What the Church Really Says
by Jimmy Akins and Jimmy Akin




Overview -
A unique, valuable, and long-overdue resource for all Catholics as well as those inquiring about the Faith, Teaching with Authority will help deepen your understanding of what the Church teaches by showing you (maybe for the first time) how and why and where it does.

Not another catechism or "Catholicism for beginners" book, Teaching with Authority isn't about understanding specific teachings of the Faith (even the complicated and misunderstood ones) but rather about understanding Catholic teaching itself. Where does the Church's teaching authority come from? How do we weigh dogmas versus practices, doctrines versus disciplines, conciliar declarations versus papal interviews? How do we sort through the many kinds of ecclesial documents and determine their relative authority and relevance?

And, in an age when accusations of heresy fly regularly across social media, Jimmy also tackles the issues of incredulity, apostasy, and schism-showing you how to recognize different forms of dissent
