The official Catechism of the Catholic Church, Second Edition clearly spells out the Church's beliefs on:

  • Love and marriage
  • Children
  • God, creation, humanity, life, death, and the afterlife
  • Mary, the Church, the saints, and the sacraments
  • And much, much more.

Why a "second edition"? Revised to conform completely with the official Latin text promulgated by Pope John Paul II in 1997, the book now also includes an extensive glossary and analytical index to make it even more "user friendly."

Unlike the catechism you may have used as a child, the official Catechism of the Catholic Church, Second Edition, doesn't have a question-and-answer format. Designed for lay use, it can be read from cover-to-cover or, with its handy index, used as a resource to find a specific teaching on a specific topic.

A "must" for every Catholic household. It's also the perfect gift for graduation, Confirmation, birthdays, Christmas, and Mother's or Father's Day. (And a great addition to your own library to help you learn even more about the Church and be better able to explain its beliefs to others!)

Review:

Catechism of the Catholic Church is the first new edition of the catechism in 400 years. Catechism means "instruction," and this text will remain the standard reference for Catholics for many future generations. It is the authoritative summary of Catholic belief regarding the Church creeds, sacraments, commandments, and prayers. To get some idea of the level of detail with which the Catechism engages Catholic doctrine, consider that 17 pages of explanation accompany the opening words of the Apostle's Creed ("I Believe in God the Father"). The book is exceptionally well organized, with line-by-line explanations of every conceivable aspect of orthodox Catholic belief. Extensive cross-referencing, indexing, footnotes, and "In Brief" summaries of each section further ease the project of finding the precise answers to any questions a reader might have. Even the layout of information on the page is easy on the eyes, with wide margins for readers who wish to make notes. Furthermore, the back cover features a true rarity in the annals of world literature: a blurb by the Pope. --Michael Joseph Gross

From the Publisher:

Four centuries in the making, a monumental undertaking and a magnificent achievement, the first definitive Catholic Catechism since the Council of Trent in 1566 details the doctrine, dogma, and the basic tenets of the Church. "A sure and certain standard for the teaching of the faith." -- Pope John Paul II
