Item description for The Catholic Way: Faith for Living Today by Donald Wuerl...
Overview The essential book for every Catholic, and particularly for adult converts, "The Catholic Way" is an intelligent guide to the faith and dogma of a Catholic Church catechism.
"The Catholic Way" is an up-to-date reflection on what it means to be a Catholic today. It is a clear, intelligent, and authoritative guide to the perennial faith of the Catholic Church as presented in the "Catechism of the Catholic Church." Written by a bishop recognized internationally and nationally for his teaching and writing, and for producing video presentations on the Catholic faith, this indispensable book illuminates the riches of the Catholic Church, guiding readers -- whether recent converts or lifelong Catholics -- to a deeper understanding and appreciation of the Church. In concise, easy-to-understand language, Bishop Wuerl explains what the Church's "Catechism" is and how its content touches our life. He elucidates the words of the Sacred Scripture, the meaning of Jesus' life and ministry, Mary's place and significance within the Church's teachings, what the articles of the creed mean, what the sacraments signify, and how the commandments apply to us today. His insights provide answers to the questions "What do we believe?" and "Why do we believe that?" "The Catholic Way" can be used with confidence by all Catholics. For the faithful and the questioning, for believers and seekers, "The Catholic Way" will stand as the definitive book on the meaning and power of the Church's "Catechism" and its beliefs and teachings.

Great point by point Catechism Nov 11, 2006
This book is a great point-by-point Catechism for those just beginning to learn about Christianity and Catholicism. While it starts a little simplistically for someone already familiar with the Church's teachings, it does give excellent explanations for those new to the faith. This would be a great gift for a child preparing for their first communion; along with the Catechism of the Catholic Church (which this book is an explanation of) it might even serve well for teenagers in preparation for confirmation, especially if they are poorly catechized. This book is also a great start for introducing friends to the Church who are curious but unaware of what the Church believes.
