The Church and the Human Quest for Truth
Author: Charles Morerod, O.P.
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.
excellent book shows that the Church is the place where God fulfils our human
quest for truth and happiness. Fr. Morerod offers a solid exposition of what
the Church really is, with a fresh sense of philosophical and ecumenical issues
at stake. It is not just another book on ecclesiology, but a fundamental and
limpid contribution to the understanding of human vocation to contemplating
the Truth and living from it. I wish I had read this book when I began studying

Morerod’s The Church and the Human Quest for Truth is at once masterfully
original and profoundly orthodox Catholic theology at its best. The author explains
how the fundamental human desire for happiness finds its realization in salvation
and what we mean when we say that this salvation cannot occur outside the Church.
Written with beautiful lucidity and informed by a rigorous logic, this book
ought to prove valuable for both beginner and expert alike. I cannot imagine
a better treatment of a whole range of issues in ecclesiology. With this short
treatise, Fr. Morerod has performed a great service to Catholic theology.
