  • 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.

    Catechism of the Catholic Church

    I read the reviews on this and thought that this was the book I was looking for, but after it arrived I found out that it wasn't what I wanted. I will probably donate it to the church. I was looking for a refresher type of catechism so I ordered the Baltimore Catechism set instead.

    A great reference and study help.

    I am returning home to the Catholic Church. I am a senior citizen and I left the church at the age of 13. Catechism of the Catholic Church is a great reference book for me but hard for me to just sit and read as a book. So I also got the other book that goes with it, it really helps. I am anxiously waiting to afford my study bible to help me with the catechism. Best Uses: Reference; Describe Yourself: Casual Reader; Pros: Informative

    2nd best book in the world (1st = Bible)

    As a 6th-8th Religion teacher at a Catholic school, I ordered 30 Catechisms so that I could have a full classroom set. What better way to point people to the truths of the Catholic faith... I wish I would have been introduced to the Catechism before doubting the faith in college (I have obviously come back - thanks to the depth of wisdom found in the Catechism!). Best Uses: Gift, Reference; Describe Yourself: Everyday Reader; Pros: Deserves Multiple Readings, Informative, Well Written
