YOUCAT is short for Youth Catechism of the Catholic Church, which was launched on World Youth Day, 2011. Developed with the help of young Catholics and written for high-school age people and young adults, YOUCAT is an accessible, contemporary expression of the Catholic Faith.
The appealing graphic format includes Questions-and-Answers, highly-readable commentary, summary definitions of key terms, Bible citations and inspiring and thought-provoking quotes from Saints and others in the margins. What's more, YOUCAT is keyed to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, so people can go deeper. It explains:
The questions are direct and honest, even at times tough; the answers straightforward, relevant, and compelling. YOUCAT will likely become the "go-to" place for young people to learn the truth about the Catholic faith. Illustrated.

|Review:||YOUCAT book is easy to understand our Catholic faith; rich with information that prepares us to receive the Sacraments to become Disciples of Christ, and to live our faith.This is the book we use in our 2 Yr Communion class, and also is my present for my nephews that God willing will receive Confirmation this Easter. If you are curious about the Catholic Church, read/study this book.|

|Review:||I was excited to learn that the Catechism had been formulated into an easy to read and understand for teens and young adults. I got it as a confirmation gift for my niece. She's not a big reader, but hopefully it will be approachable enough that she will refer to it when she has questions. Best Uses: Confirmation gift; Pros: Easy To Understand|
