Today, and in past centuries, thousands of people have struggled with that sometimes puzzling question. Unfortunately, there are often as many answers as there are people and churches in the world. But this book, which is the condensed version of the best-selling Not By Faith Alone: The Biblical Evidence for the Catholic Doctrine of Justification, will clear away the confusion and give you an understanding that you always knew possible but just needed the proper guidance to bring out. It is written especially for you: the beginner, the student, the housewife, the young adult, the non-scholarly layman. As with most things that are godly and true, the answer is really very simple. And if your mind and heart are open, this book will not only show you the way to heaven but it will also give you a new outlook on life on earth. After reading it, you will know what God expects of you and what will lead you to his heavenly mansion. Imprimatur.
