My friend is sincerely searching Catholicism. She has asked for a book on the Church Fathers. She is basically studying whether the Church still has the authority Jesus gave it… Is there a book to help us understand what comprises “Sacred Tradition?” Who are these Church fathers and what’s their authority? How does the Church decide what is true v. heretical today?
Should I just have her read the Catechism? Well, I should at some point, but is there something more concise, easier to read?
Thanks for your suggestions.
