In this wide-ranging, candid conversation, Cardinal Péter Erdo, Archbishop of Budapest, Hungary, and one of the most respected cardinals in the Catholic Church, speaks with Dr. Robert Moynihan, founder and editor of Inside the Vatican magazine, about the Catholic faith in an increasingly secularized world.

Erdo, eminent for his intelligence and learning, was chosen by Pope Francis to be the Relator General at the 2014 and 2015 Synods of Bishops. He was also twice elected president of the Council of the Episcopal Conferences of Europe, making him, in a sense, the leading bishop of Europe. 

In this book, the cardinal speaks forthrightly about the need to "guard the flame" of the traditional Christian faith in the face of all temptations and obstacles. In the end, the book is a courageous call to remain faithful to the faith handed down from the Apostles, whatever the cost.
