Four centuries in the making, a monumental undertaking and a magnificent achievement, this is the first definitive Catholic Catechism since the Council of Trent in 1566. It details the doctrine, dogma, and the basic tenets of the Church. 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. 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. Here is a positive, coherent and contemporary map for our spiritual journey toward transformation. "A sure norm for teaching the Faith." - St. John Paul II
