Product Description

Four centuries in the making, a monumental undertaking and a magnificent achievement, this is the first definitive Catholic Catechism since the Council of Trent in 1566. It details the doctrine, dogma, and the basic tenets of the Church. Using the tradition of explaining what the Church believes, what she celebrates, what she lives and what she prays, 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.

Publisher's Description

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."

    If I were to order this again, I would want one that stays open when I am trying to read it. The book is so thick, compared to its page dimensions (4" X 7.25") that it is hard to hold open. This hardcover book looks very nice, and it has the content that I was looking for, but I needed it to be more user-friendly.

    As a reviewer of Catholic theology, I find this book presents an excellent description of the teachings of the Roman church. It is clear and concise in outlining this system. I would recommend it to anyone who wants an overall understanding of Catholicism.

    I am a protestant wanting to understand the Catholic Church better. This book is a full explanation of Catholic doctrine and practice. I recommend to any Protestant seeking balanced information on the Catholic part of the body of Christ.
