The desire for God is written in the human heart, because man is created by God and for God; and God never ceases to draw man to himself. Only in God will he find the truth and happiness he never stops searching for: "The dignity of man rests above all on the fact that he is called to communion with God." (Catechism of the Catholic Church #27)
The study of Catholic Theology is the study of Truth.  The First Steps in Theology bundle will start you on your way to a comprehensive understanding of the science of Theology and its role within the Catholic Church.  Begin to understand better what the Church has come to know about God and man's relationship with Him.
