Great Little Book Apr 13, 2006
This little volume has sold over 5 Million copies in four different editions since 1978. It is indexed to the Catechism written in easy to read language. This book is clear, concise and coherent.

The book is composed of 4 sections:
4. Living the Faith
This is one of those little books you will reference again and again.
11/12/05 I think this book was a very helpful and concise overview of the Catholic faith. It presents the traditional faith in modern language heavily citing and referencing the Catechism of the Catholic Church. It's lite reading for the initiated Catholic and might be superfluous. It is good for a refresher on the core tenets of the faith. Good for the inquiring Protestant.
It contains a useful resource on the go. It has the basic prayers, as well as useful lists such as the Beattitudes, the Precepts of the Church, The Corporal Works of Mercy, or the Spiritual Works. It contains a very useful method of meditation. It also gives a concise guideline to a proper confession.
I found it to be an easy read, but not very challenging. All in all, pretty good booklet.
