Book Details Summary

Over 3 million copies sold! Essential reading for Catholics of all walks of life.

Here it is - the first new Catechism of the Catholic Church in more than 400 years, a complete summary of what Catholics around the world commonly believe. 

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. The word catechism means "instruction" - this book will serve as the standard for all future catechisms.

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.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church is a positive, coherent and contemporary map for our spiritual journey toward transformation.

  • Fuller, deeper, "tight."

    It all makes sense. As a recent convert from 30-plus years of Protestantism, I'm excited to see what THE Church believes, "from the horse's mouth." Rather than the woefully prejudicial beliefs about Catholicism (i.e., true Christianity) promulgated by Protestants, I am invigorated and enlightened by the truth given so completely and coherently by those who guarded it for the past two millennia. I HIGHLY recommend ANY Christian (Protestant or Catholic) read this, for herein you will be challenged to reconsider (and/or re-learn) what are the essentials of Christianity, in addition to specific moral commentaries on some of the ethical challenges of our time.

    I really love this book but it seems pieces are missing. I can’t find the section on the Creator Abandoning his creation. I think its a cell phone signal and a back page or visual alternation. The first time I recieved the Abandonment of Creation it was in hard copy form and was not offensive or defensive. It gave me room to ponder my true suffering. I know this can be scary paticularly in loop theory as punishment response patterns and the dangers of them and me getting confused. I’ve since found the date of that reading 03/14/2018. This date is my response and so the read is either that day or near to it. My letter to this said some pretty hard things to creator but later in Feb or March I realized that creators response was this. That a creator God should never create a creature like a living breathing drinking human at a lower level of an evolutionary chart and should never expect that creature to have to evolve that schedule for its existance. We would and will directly reject God if this is done to us if we come from a moral ethical understanding. So therefor there can’t be a higher level of human evolution or change of its original state of birth viable to to water, air and breath as a human. We are not bugs comming into the rytherm of the htz of the earth and we are not required to live or be forced compressed ventilation. Unfortunalty this Hard Copy Catechism Of the Catholic Church that I purchased no longer shows the proper creator creation section in the visual opticals nor search engine in the online or hard copy. The way of the earth is in our clay bodies, in our flesh persist by required comfort and ethical standards and you can’t run from yourself nor your self same. To see is to become more human in that we have a organizing understanding to all things and our relationship. Humanity is not a tool but can use a tool. Why has this section been removed from my spiritual eye and full regular eyes. Is this book a collective responsive system? I dont want to hurt another in movement not permisable just in case. I hate headachs and complaints that left unanswered could cause pain.
