Item description for Catechism of the Catholic Church: Second Edition by Catholic Church...
Overview This updated second edition of the Catechism of the Catholic Church incorporates all the final modifications made in the complete, official Latin text, accompanied by line-by-line explanations of orthodox Catholicism, summaries of each section, a detailed index, extensive cross-references, and helpful footnotes.
Here it is -- the first new "Catechism of the Catholic Church" in more than 400 years, a complete summary of what Catholic throughout the world believe in common. This book is the catechism (the word means "instruction") that will serve as the standard for all future catechisms. The "Catechism" draws on the Bible, the Mass, the Sacraments, Church tradition and teaching, and the lives of saints. It comes with a complete index, footnotes and cross-references for a fuller understanding of every subject. Using the tradition of explaining what the Church believes (the Creed), what she celebrates (the Sacraments), what she lives (the Commandments), and what she prays (the Lord's Prayer), the "Catechism of the Catholic Church" offers challenges for believers and answers for all those interested in learning about the mystery of the Catholic faith. Here is a positive, coherent and contemporary map for our spiritual journey toward transformation. The "Catechism of the Catholic Church" is, as Pope John Paul II calls it, "a special gift."

Reviews - What do customers think about Catechism Of The Catholic Church-Hardcover?
A wonderful family gift Nov 30, 1999
I bought two of these books, one for my mother and one for my grandmother. My grandmother is becoming Catholic and my mom is becoming Confirmed. They both loved it. My grandmother showed the book to everyone in their class and bragged about how nice of a book it was. The priest even said that the book was wonderful and every Catholic should have one. She truly enjoys reading it and I think it's a wonderful book at a wonderful price.
Understanding the Rock of Faith Nov 30, 1999
This is a reference for any Catholic whose got questions or seeks to understand the how and why of official Catholic positions. If you can't remember your catechism classes then this book is for you. Scholars of religious study benefit from this detailed overview of what the Catholic church stands for and what they preach.
Good for new Catholics Nov 30, 1999
The Catechism of the Catholic Church has been very helpful to me, especially going through RCIA, it has helped with a bunch of questions that have come up during classes. It has also helped me to understand where the Church stands on such matters as Drug/Alcohol Abuse, Marriage, etc... I would definitely recommend this for anyone going through the faith or even those we call "Cradle Catholics".
Excellent Resource Nov 30, 1999
This is an excellent tool for those who wish to explore the Catholic faith and seek the source of those beliefs.
Dry but enlightening Nov 30, 1999
A dry, weighty tome - but I don't regret reading it. Taught me more about my faith. Contains a number of enlightening nuggets of information.
