Product Description

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.

Publisher's Description

Pocket Catholic Dictionary is a comprehensive, one-volume reference work containing definitions and explanations of the key terms of Catholicism. Father Hardon has carefully selected some 2,000 entries from his original master tome of over 5,000 terms that comprise Modern Catholic Dictionary. Furthermore, this pocket edition reflects changes in the newly revised Code of Canon Law.

Here are clear and concise definitions in the areas of faith, worship, morals, history, theology, spirituality. The only such dictionary compiled since Vatican Council II, and incorporating post-conciliar terms and expressions, it is alphabetically arranged with appropriate cross-references. The Appendix features the Credo of the People of God, a complete listing of popes, and an updated ecclesiastical calendar of the Roman rite with saints for each day of the year.

This handy primer is a worthy companion to the author's bestselling Catholic Catechism, and one that belongs in every home library.

    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.
