The first edition of the new Catechism went out across the world in many language versions. This gave the local Churches the chance to study it in depth. Through their bishops and teachers they responded with comments on texts that needed refinement. The present edition was developed in the light of these comments and published in Latin as the definitive Editio Typica. This book is the English translation of the Editio Typica.… (more)

It's impossible to overstate the value of the Catholic Catechism of the Catholic Church. The reason for this is that it provides insight into a human community yielded to God, founded by Jesus Christ over 2,000 years ago, the existence of which will never end. It's a comprehensive document of the faith and doctrines of the Church. Whether one is religious or otherwise, this great repository of the Church gives concrete information about who God is, his nature and his desire for all humanity. It abounds with wisdom, history, philosophy, doctrine, moral guidance, and 2000 years of Christian thinking and understanding as it has evolved over the centuries. It provides explicit references throughout its 756 pages. It holds to the reality that truth is indeed absolute. It cannot be fully consummated even in a lifetime. This is because each paragraph is like a keyhole-view into an ever broadening array of information on the temporal and the eternal truths. It brings a vision of hope in the discovery of the width, length, depth and height of God's passionate love for all of humanity.

Seems silly to rate a book covering the teachings of the Catholic faith, so I won't. The binding was excellent, although the font was a bit small on my hardcover edition, which comes from it being "pocket sized" (an optimistic selling point). It is very dense and took me more than a year to truly finish, but will take years to understand. ( )

The Catechism of the Catholic Church is a catechism promulgated for the Catholic Church by Pope John Paul II in 1992. It sums up, in book form, the beliefs of the Catholic faithful.

The full, complete exposition of Catholic doctrine, this second edition of the international bestseller has been significantly expanded, enhancing both its content and usability. Revised in accordance with the official Latin text promulgated by Pope John Paul II in 1997, the second edition now includes more than a hundred additional pages, offering such new features as a glossary of terms, an index of citations from sources and in-brief texts on core teachings. The essential elements of faith are presented in the most understandable manner, enabling everyone to read and know what the Church professes, celebrates, lives, and prays in her daily life. The first new compendium in more than 400 years, the second edition of the Catechism stands, in the words of Pope John Paul II, as "a sure norm for teaching the faith" and an "authentic reference text." Q: How does the second edition of the Catechism of the Catholic Church differ from the first edition? A: The second edition differs in two ways. First, the second edition reflects the changes that were made in the final Latin text in 1997. Second, the second edition includes a new index. The glossary was also added in the American version of the second edition of the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
