Shelves: theology-catholic-general While this book is not the kind of thing that you would want to bring with you for a light read on the beach, it is a good book with which to become familiar. Written in the early 20th Century by a German Catholic theologian, this book lays out the breadth of Catholic theology within one volume, which by itself is a pretty amazing achievement.
This book is barely readable, and while that fact may be partially due to the fact that it is a translation from the German, I would suspect that the While this book is not the kind of thing that you would want to bring with you for a light read on the beach, it is a good book with which to become familiar.
This book is barely readable, and while that fact may be partially due to the fact that it is a translation from the German, I would suspect that the volume is just as unreadable in German as it is in English. It gives the Catholic doctrines on everything from the existence of God to various Marian doctrines to the sacraments and the Church, and it gives the verbatim teaching from the actual Church documents such as the councils or the papal decrees.
This is what makes it so valuable. Another great thing about this book is that Ott juxtaposes the Catholic teachings with the various heretical teachings that are opposed to the orthodox teaching. The other great thing about this volume is that it is unambiguous about the Catholic teaching.
Ott does not water down the teachings, nor does he misrepresent them in order to make them more palatable to the modern reader. Why is this important?
At least with the real teachings, the dissenter can make up his or her mind with the facts. So, I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand what the Catholic Church really teaches.
