Publisher's Description

John Hardon's comprehensive, one-volume work of reference defining the key
terms of Catholicism; updated to include the most recent developments in the
Catholic Church.

Clear, concise, and faithful, with over 2,000 entries, Catholic Dictionary is the essential Catholic lexicon in the areas of faith, worship, morals, history, theology, and spirituality. Now revised to include the statements of Pope Benedict XVI and Pope John Paul II, new movements and devotions, and other recent developments within Catholicism, this edition brings the legacy of Father Hardon into the contemporary era. A worthy companion to Catechism of the Catholic Church and Scott Hahn's Catholic Bible Dictionary, this book is an essential resource for the Catholic reader.

    As I hinted in my previous post, I've been slow to do my "required reading" for this blog. It's been long enough that I got to worrying: How long before I'm told I *can't* review anymore? For BookSneeze and Blogging for Books, it's 90 days, come to find out. (I believe The Catholic Company has no deadline.) So I had plenty of time. It has been more than a week since I last published though, which is something BookSneeze says they don't like. I doubt they're watching any of their bloggers carefully though, and anyway it's the first time it's happened.

    I was re-inspired by an e-mail with a long list of attractive books available for review. As a matter of fact, I received another e-mail as I'm getting ready to publish this.

    I thought I was inspired before I opened this one, if you know what I mean. This is not one to peruse if you're already tired. Your eyes may glaze over, too.

    I knew Hardon would be okay to read because I'd hear his name tossed around, in a positive way, where I used to work. Still, I didn't know he died in 2000! This book was first published in 1980. Like Catholicism for Dummies: Is there anything I don't know?

    By the way, last time I saw my acquaintance he told me he doesn't want to review Catholicism for Dummies for this blog. Apparently he's worried he'd react to the book's content too much, and not just review the book. This got us to talking about matters of faith, and as always I wished I knew more and could respond more effectively. Lucky for me this guy is never a jerk, and I like talking to him. I'd like it even more if I could teach him something about the faith! I said to him, in fact, I just have to know everything. (That is, I have to be ready.)

    That's where this dictionary comes in. If you don't read it straight through, at least you can refer to it after you talk to someone about the Faith, and get back to him or her about his concerns.

    So this book is a welcome addition to the parish library shelf. Hardon being trustworthy is enough to be comfortable having this book on your shelf.
