When the Catechism of the Catholic Church was published in 1992 after six years of work by the worldwide church's bishops, it was intended to spawn volumes exactly like this one. Such books, Pope John Paul II and the bishops theorized, would translate the pedantic Catechism, a collection of the beliefs and practices of the billion-member church, into language adjusted for cultural sensitivities. The authors of this handbook for teens have answered the call for such adaptations by producing a version that repackages the big book's teachings into an attractive, accessible format. Following the same outline as the Catechism, they present the doctrinal narrative in a relaxed, conversational style and intersperse it with eye-catching info-blocks. "Did You Know?" offers bits of Catholic trivia; "Live It" provides ideas for putting faith into action; "Looking Back" gives historical snapshots; "Saintly Profiles" tells about 37 interesting saints; and "Pray It!" lists prayer suggestions. Helpful appendices list patron saints and their feast days, describe Catholic prayers and devotions and give a glossary of common Catholic terms. Conservative readers will be pleased to see that the book bears the church's imprimatur and nihil obstat, assuring it is free of doctrinal error. The book's high-quality graphic design and friendly approach suit its young audience, while adults seeking more knowledge about the church may also find it appealing.
