A wonderful introduction to the truths of the Faith
Perfect for new Catholics, non-Catholics, and Catholics themselves!
Catholics of a certain age fondly remember the Baltimore Catechism, the gold standard question-and-answer catechism that provided an entire generation of Catholics with easy-to-understand-and-memorize answers to the basic truths of the Catholic Church.
Now, noted authors Mike Aquilna and Fr. Kris D. Stubna have taken this time-honored question-and-answer format and written a new catechism rooted in the Catechism of the Catholic Church and the documents of Vatican II.
From the very first question: "Who are you?" to the final "What prayers does the Church recommend?" this sure-to-become-a-classic is filled with the richness of Catholic teaching.
In addition to the question-and-answer section, What Catholics Believe also contains sections on traditional Catholic prayers, a guide to making a good Confession, an explanation of the Mass, and much, much more.

What Catholics Believe
Jim Rickert(Quincy, MA, January 2, 2016)
The book is a really loving, positive look at what Catholics believe. I bought 2 copies: 1 for a friend who wants to return to the Church and 1 for me to read it with him. I think it will be a big help for us both. A great first step.
Easy to Read

As a returning Catholic the book WHAT CATHOLICS BELIEVE is a daily read for me. I like glancing through it for questions that have been coming up for me. I look through it before I watch the daily mass on EWTN. Best Uses: Reference, Travel Reading; Describe Yourself: Everyday Reader; Pros: Deserves Multiple Readings

I bring communion and scriptural readings to inmates at the county jail and frequently get questions that are easily answered by referring to this booklet. It's only shortcoming is that an exhaustive index would be helpful when a quick answer is required.
