Reviews - What do customers think about Essentials of the Faith: A Guide to the Catechism of the Catholic Church?

Marvelous  Apr 29, 2007
In fifty-five, two-page chapters, Fr. McBride breaks open and explains the much longer Catechism of the Catholic Church. Each chapter includes an opening narrative, a Q&A with responses excerpted from the Catechism, a prayer, a glossary of words and terms, and a personal reflection. It's a marvelous resource, with crisp writing and orthodox explanations. Fr. McBride also provides a brief history of catechesis that examines the failure of methods preached by catechetical elites for the past forty years. Anyone stuck in a vacuous "let's sit in a circle and talk about the Sunday readings" RCIA program, i.e., the RCIA program of a typical American parish, should treat this book as a godsend.
Easy-to-read summary of the beliefs of the Catholic Church  May 30, 1999
The Catechism of the Catholic Church is an extremely popular reference for Catholics and others interested in the Catholic Church. However, it can be a difficult read, given that it changes voices all the time--quoting from Scripture, writings of the saints, Church documents, etc. In this case, these strengths can be a weakness to readers unfamiliar with reading Church documents. Father McBride provides a guide to the Catechism, complete with cross-references. He has an easy-to-read style that is accessible to all readers. His chapters are short and succinct. They are divided into useful sections: glossary, summary questions, reflection, etc. A good investment for anyone who would like to understand the Catholic faith.
