|United States Catholic Catechism for Adults - The presence of the Catholic Church in the United States reaches back to the founding days of our country through the leadership of Archbishop John Carroll, the first Catholic bishop in the United States. His story like the stories at the start of each chapter in the United States Catholic Catechism for Adults give us a glimpse into the lives of Catholics who lived out their faith throughout our country's history. Each chapter in the Catechism for Adults includes stories, doctrine, reflection, quotations, discussion questions, and prayer to lead the reader to a deepening faith. The Catechism for Adults is an excellent resource for preparation of catechumens in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults and for ongoing catechesis of adults.||
of the Catechism of the Catholic Church
- Catholics' hunger for the faith continues to grow. Pope Benedict XVI
gives the Church the "food" that is seeks in the 598 questions
and answers in the Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
This 200-page volume offers a quick synopsis of the essential contents
of the faith as promulgated in the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
Like the 1992 Catechism, the Compendium has a four-part structure, and
includes a section on common prayers and Catholic doctrinal formulas.
Because of the question-and-answer format, catechetical leaders-parents,
pastors, teachers, principals, and catechists-have a unique opportunity
to dialogue with the faithful, and reinvigorate the Church's ongoing
mission of evangelization and catechesis. Individuals can come "to
know the unfathomable riches of the salvific mystery of Jesus Christ"
by reading, using, and memorizing parts of the Compendium of the Catechism.
An essential tool for youth and young adults, the Compendium is the
perfect companion to a youth or young adult's Bible, spiritual reading,
or textbook. Catechetical leaders in high schools, colleges, and parishes
will appreciate its versatility-as a reference book, discussion starter,
or core resource for RCIA programs.
