The constant references are a bit distracting, but I am appreciating this very thorough explanation of the faith. ( )

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.
