Gerhard Cardinal Müller releases new book addressing the most pressing issues facing the Catholic Church

SAN FRANCISCO — From the former Prefect for the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith, Gerhard Cardinal Müller, comes a new book detailing the current attacks on Catholic doctrine and morals, and challenging Catholics to understand exactly what is at stake: THE POWER OF TRUTH: The Challenges to Catholic Doctrine and Morals Today.

Cardinal Müller is an internationally known theologian and churchman. He formerly was the Bishop of Regensburg, Germany, and a professor of theology. Cardinal Müller also is the author of many books, including The Cardinal Müller Report, The Hope of the Family and Priesthood and Diaconate.

THE POWER OF TRUTH analyzes perhaps the most pressing cultural issues of today, including questions of divorced Catholics receiving the Eucharist, the indissolubility of marriage, and the moral relativism of contraception and abortion. Cardinal Müller directly — and aptly — describes how the Magisterium works and why the truth is not an abstract theory.

THE POWER OF TRUTH also includes the cardinal’s recently released Manifesto of Faith. Relying heavily on The Catechism of the Catholic Church, it clarifies certain Church doctrines that have seemed to be in doubt in recent times.

“Cardinal Müller provides us with a luminous example of the harmony between faith and reason applied to contemporary moral issues,” said Timothy Cardinal Dolan, archbishop of New York. “A man who has devoted his life to serving Jesus and his Church, the logic and clarity of Cardinal Müller’s work is always wedded to a laser-like focus on Jesus Christ: the way, the truth and the life.
