This book is written for Catholic youth of high school and college age, addressing key issues and concerns that are important to youth today about faith and life. With a great pastoral love for young people growing up in a secular, hedonistic society, Cardinal Pell seeks to strengthen the hope of youth by explaining the depth of God's goodness and love as revealed in the Catholic tradition, ancient yet ever new.
Using the Catechism of the Catholic Church as his guide, he encourages youth to seek the truth as he explains Christian alternatives to the false answers that assail us in the media and advertising. He examines important contemporary issues from the Catholic perspective, helping youth answer such questions as: Is there really a God? What makes actions good or evil? What is the purpose of existence? Why go to Mass? What's sex got to do with love and marriage? Who is Jesus? Is there life after death? What's wrong with abortion and euthanasia? And many more. Illustrated.
