    Concise Handbook

    This is a Confirmation gift, and it's a simple one to have for reference. The information is concise and easy to read. It has some basic information about our beliefs, practices, our prayers. It's good for someone just joining the faith. It's also good for anyone who doesn't know the Act of Faith prayer or who wants to read a quick page about what the Church says about purgatory or other matters. It's great for anyone who is still learning some of the basics.

    A must have with the main catechism.

    This book helps me with the Catechism of the Catholic Church book. The Catechism of the Catholic Church is very important but like a tech manual and this book the Handbook for Todays Catholic makes using the Catechism easier to handle and use. Both books are very important to me as a returning Catholic. Best Uses: Older Readers, Reference; Describe Yourself: Everyday Reader; Pros: Easy To Read, Informative
