Beginning with discussions of Trinity, Grace, the Incarnation, and Salvation, Himes moves into an exploration of Church as the continuing presence of Jesus Christ in the world today. After discussing Baptism and baptismal commitment, he focuses on the Eucharist and its importance in building community. Following a discussion of the Sacraments of Matrimony and Holy Orders, Himes explores the importance of the Sacrament of Reconciliation in the Christian community, and concludes with an exploration of the great gift known as the Church's Tradition.

"Drawn from a video production based on the author's book of the same name, this audio is like an undergraduate course - intellectually rich, dry, and sometimes funny. The author/narrator is a self-contained, experienced cleric who delivers his reflections sometimes as an offering, sometimes as a gentle admonition, and always with the tone of someone with full authority over his teachings. The 10 current issues he covers are the Trinity, grace, incarnation, salvation, church, baptism, the Eucharist, sacraments of vocation, reconciliation, and tradition. Useful to all thinking people, these concise lessons are all satisfying and grounded in the Church's tradition of thinking and reflection." (AudioFile)
