Reviews - What do customers think about A Concise Catechism for Catholics?
Compendium of the Compendium Sep 7, 2007
Given its format -- Q&A -- and length -- 60 pages or so -- you might consider this little catechism a "compendium of the Compendium." Much like the authoritative Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, this book provides crisp, succinct answers to questions about the Catholic faith. The difference here is that the language used is a bit less meditative, the questions posed a bit more practical, and the length reduced by about half. Moreover, the answers are more concise; hardly any go more than the length of a short paragraph. Highly recommended.
