  • Catechism of the Catholic Church
  • An excellent resource to find the Church’s teachings on a specific topic
  • Features a complete index, footnotes and cross-references

The word catechesis describes the work of the Catholic Church “to make disciples, to help men believe that Jesus is the Son of God so that believing they might have life in His name, and to educate and instruct them in this life, thus building up the body of Christ” (from the Prologue). The word catechism means “instruction”. The Catechism of the Catholic Church instructs us on the teachings of the Church. It is a great reference book which contains a complete summary of what Catholics throughout the world believe.

The Catechism draws on the Bible, the Mass, the sacraments, Church tradition and teaching, and the lives of the saints. It comes with a complete index, footnotes and cross-references for a fuller understanding of every subject. Using the tradition of explaining what the Church believes (the Creed), what she celebrates (the Sacraments), what she lives (the Commandments) and what she prays (the Lord's Prayer), the Catechism of the Catholic Church offers challenges for believers and answers for all those interested in learning about the mystery of the Catholic faith. The Catechism of the Catholic Church is, as Pope John Paul II calls it, "a special gift."

This English version of the Catechism is a handy compact size and is a complete and updated edition which contains modifications from the Editio Typica - the official Latin version of the Catechism.

    Great Size

    I already have the full-size Catechism of the Catholic Church, but wanted a smaller, more portable copy to take to Bible Study, RCIA, etc. This works great.

    Catechism Book

    I would have given 5 stars but the print needs to be larger.

    Excellent Resource For Teaching The Catholic Faith

    In teaching a course for Catechist Certification I bought each of my students a copy of the Catechism. It was greatly appreciated. I am especially grateful to The Catholic Company for getting these to me on very short notice. I highly recommend and encourage all Catholics to have a copy of this excellent resource for their Faith. It is the "go to book" for questions on the Catholic Faith.

    Catechism of The Catholic Church

    I may have drifted, at times, and sometimes wondered about some things of our faith. Never had a catechism, like this, since I was a kid, or since CCD,(some things have changed & I'm getting older). Thought it would be good to look through one, for some info and answers. It's still new, to me, but looks like I made a good choice. Lot of easy to understand info. I like it. You might, also. Besides, the Catholic Company does have a Guarantee. I'm happy, and well worth the cost.

    The Catechism of The Catholic Church is a wonderful companion for enriching one's faith. It's easy to navigate, cross referenced and full of information in helping to nurture, develop and strengthen one's relationship in faith and with God.

    Catechism of the Catholic Church

    I am taking a Bible Study course and the course makes reference to certain sections in the catechism and that reference helps to clarify some teachings or information that we go over. I find it very useful to me. It is easy to use.
