The truths of our faith are more than words—they are living truths that are meant to make a difference in our lives. Every single revelation of God can be life changing and transforming when we understand it, live it out, and share it with others. This book by Cardinal Donald Wuerl is a positive, uplifting, and joyful presentation of the basic truths of the Catholic faith. With its simple and clear format, it will help Catholics recognize the abundant life awaiting them when they truly embrace these truths.
Each chapter examines a section of the Creed through the series of questions: (1) What is the revelation, and what does it mean? (2) How can this truth transform me? (3) How do I live it? (4) How do I share it with others? Each chapter ends with discussion questions and a "Looking for More" section with citations to the Scriptures, the Catechism, and relevant Church documents.

Praise for Faith That Transforms Us

"The Year of Faith . . . the New Evangelization . . . are just slogans if we do not first appreciate the truth, beauty, and wisdom of what we believe. How to do that? Start with this crisp yet compelling book by Cardinal Wuerl on the Creed!" —Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan, Archbishop of New York.

"Clear, concise, confident, and a certain sign that the renewal of catechesis is truly under way, Cardinal Wuerl's Faith that Transforms Us is a must-use resource for preaching and teaching the faith and an essential tool for the New Evangelization." —Very Rev. Robert Barron, creator of the Catholicism series, founder of Word on Fire Catholic Ministries, and Rector/President of Mundelein Seminary/University of St. Mary of the Lake, Illinois

"Every Catholic will benefit from Cardinal Wuerl's insightful and practical reflections on the articles of the Creed. Not only will we understand more clearly what we believe, but we will know how to apply our beliefs to how we live our lives. This book makes a significant contribution to restoring clarity and confidence to Catholics regarding both the truthfulness and relevance of our foundational beliefs." —Ralph Martin, President, Renewal Ministries, and author of Will Many Be Saved? What Vatican II Actually Teaches and Its Implications for the New Evangelization

"For any Catholic who has ever felt that they were just going through the motions at Mass, or for any Catholic desiring a deeper appreciation of our core beliefs, this book if for you. Cardinal Wuerl, as a teacher and shepherd, knows some of the struggles Christians face in today's frenetic and noisy world. Faith That Transforms Us, with its practical and very readable format and helpful discussion questions, will do just that. Through a better understanding of the Creed, this book will transform your Mass experience and bring you closer to Christ and his Church." —Teresa Tomeo, Catholic author and syndicated talk show host

"Every Sunday we publicly profess the Creed. Cardinal Wuerl offers a powerful reminder that our faith, while very personal, must never remain private. We must believe what we profess, we must understand what we believe, and we must act upon what we understand. Our belief in Jesus Christ is a Faith That Transforms Us. —Curtis Martin, President and founder, FOCUS—The Fellowship of Catholic University Students

"With the aid of Faith That Transforms Us by Cardinal Donald Wuerl, believers have the potential to move beyond rote recitation of the simple words we speak in the Creed to embracing in our hearts the truths that lie at the core of our faith. A perfect resource for lifelong Catholics who long for a deeper connection to Christ and his Church or for those who seek to know more about the beliefs we profess, Cardinal Wuerl's book belongs in every home and parish." —Lisa M. Hendey, founder of CatholicMom.com and author of A Book of Saints for Catholic Moms

"Cardinal Wuerl offers Catholics a powerfully simple reflection on a few words-but not just any words. These are words that open hearts and minds to the immense depths of our faith: the Nicene Creed. Through this deep and profound yet clear and straightforward reflection, we can find life, and find it more abundantly." —Helen Osman, Secretary of Communications, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops

"This volume is a must-have for pastors, catechists, evangelists, teachers, and any Catholic who seeks to know, to be transformed by, and to share their Catholic faith. Not only does it present deeply theological and engaging pastoral reflections on the Church's apostolic faith, but the reader is invited to move from a deeper understanding of the Creed to an authentic living and sharing of the faith through daily conversion of life. In this Year of Faith, this book is a timely gift to the Church, offered by a master teacher and educator of faith." —Jem Sullivan, author and Director of Research, Blessed John Paul II Shrine, Washington, D.C.
