Question Time: 150 Questions and Answers on the Catholic Faith - REVISED EDITION
Author: Fr John Flader
Publisher: CONNOR COURT
Pages: 335 PB
Has the Church changed its teaching on Limbo? Will we ever have women priests or married priests? What is the origin of the feast of Mary, Help of Christians, and the Miraculous Medal? Does a Communion Service satisfy the obligation of attending Mass on Sundays?
In Question Time
, Fr Flader draws on more than 40 years of experience in handing on the faith to answer 150 questions on everything Catholic: doctrine, the sacraments, moral life, prayer and devotions. The answers were originally published in Sydney’s The Catholic Weekly
between 2005 and 2007, and since mid-2007 they have also appeared in The Record
The book is written in a balanced, easy-to-read style and contains a wealth of information that will be invaluable for anyone who is interested in finding out more about the Catholic faith or who is in a position to hand on the faith to others: priests, teachers, catechists, parents, RCIA coordinators, sacramental program coordinators, recent converts...

PRAISE FOR QUESTION TIME
“Fr John Flader’s book provides a useful and much needed explanation of the faith drawn from the Scriptures, the Patristics and the Councils. Many enquirers in the faith and RCIA members will find the text helpful and informative. It is an ideal complement to the /Catechism of the Catholic Church/, to which it is amply referenced. I strongly recommend this excellent faith resource.”
- Most Rev B.J. Hickey, Archbishop of Perth
“Fr Flader’s Question Time is in the tradition of the apologetics of Fulton J. Sheen. He explains the Church’s teaching and practices in a straight-forward way without any spin. The information is very up to date, including references to the works of Joseph Ratzinger / Benedict XVI. A great resource for handing on the faith.”
- Associate Professor Tracey Rowland, Dean, John Paul II Institute for Marriage and Family, Melbourne
