Also known as A Catechism of Christian Doctrine, The Penny Catechism was given its name because of its original cost of one penny. While the price has changed, The Faith has not! This handy catechism gives 307 questions and answers on all aspects of the Catholic Faith. Having been approved by the Archbishops and Bishops of England and Wales for use in their dioceses, it is an official catechism of the Catholic Church. Topics covered include: God, the Sacraments, the Ten Commandments, the Precepts of the Church, grace, virtue, sins, and so forth. The Penny Catechism is excellent both as a basic class text and as a pocket-sized review of Catholic teaching for everyone. It contains concise, direct answers and provides a wonderful summary of the Catholic Faith.

    Great catechism!

    This is a great catechism. It outlines the Faith in a simple way that is easy to understand. It's especially great for people who are new to the Faith or non-Catholics who have questions and want to learn more.

    "Everything you need to know"

    This book was purchased for my grandchildren. In today's world it's challenging to find traditional catechism. Even the Baltimore Catechism has been changed somewhat from the original printing. Best Uses: Gift, Reference, Younger Readers; Describe Yourself: Casual Reader; Pros: Deserves Multiple Readings, Easy To Read, Informative

    Lover of true Catholicism
