In 1967, Pope Paul VI thoroughly and thoughtfully reworked church teaching on indulgences. The revised Enchiridion offers almost no commentary (other than official texts) and virtually no answers to questions of practical application and explanation. Practical Guide to Indulgences does both. Awareness of and willingness to engage in such devotional acts as indulgences are increasing among the lay faithful, and A Practical Guide to Indulgences provides an intelligent and faithful explanation of what indulgences are and how they are used.

Edward Peters has doctoral degrees in canon and civil law. After working for ten years in diocesan administration, he began teaching canon law and theology at the graduate level, and in 2005 was appointed to the Edmund Cardinal Szoka Chair at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit. Dr. Peters has published widely on canonical and religious topics and is a frequent guest in Catholic broadcast media.

"We can welcome this fascinating, comprehensive, scholarly yet readable study by Dr. Edward Peters on indulgences.  His research into Scripture, the Fathers, the towering theologians of our tradition, Church doctrine, the Councils, and the Magisterium of the Church is impressive, giving us not only a renewed appreciation for the topic of indulgences, but a deeper knowledge of sin, grace, redemption, the merits of Christ, and the very nature of the Church."

—Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan,
Archbishop of New York

 

"This is a book that not only points out the wonderful privilege we have of indulgences but also emphasizes that it is by God's grace that these gifts are available to us. The Catholic Church is the depository of these blessings and has set regulations to honor and safeguard this tradition of indulgences. This book is a concise compendium of that teaching and tradition."

—Bro. Jerry Meegan, SDB,
Diocesan Director, Office for Youth and Young Adult Ministry,
Diocese of St. Petersburg, FL.
