Do we need the Church? Does the Church, with her teaching, preaching, and sacramental life, get in the way of human happiness? What is the Church's relationship to Christ and to the grace of the holy Trinity? These are among the questions that Fr. Charles Morerod addresses in his richly pastoral and learned book. This book invites Christians to learn anew why the Church, the Body of Christ, is God's chosen mode of sharing Christ's life with us.
