Here it is -- the first new "Catechism of the Catholic Church" in more than 400 years, a complete summary of what Catholic throughout the world believe in common. This book is the catechism (the word means "instruction") that will serve as the standard for all future catechisms.
The "Catechism" draws on the Bible, the Mass, the Sacraments, Church tradition and teaching, and the lives of 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. Here is a positive, coherent and contemporary map for our spiritual journey toward transformation.
The "Catechism of the Catholic Church" is, as Pope John Paul II calls it, "a special gift."

- Great for teaching and learning about the Catholic faith by Patricia on 3/30/2016
I use this edition in the classroom. It is small enough for the kids, however has what they need to learn about the faith without having the larger book. The kids (I teach teenagers) are able to look up what they need and there is more information than in the Compendium. Will be ordering my next round this summer for my next group.
