SKU: BS-CCO-1
$16.95
QTY:

Pope Benedict XVI gives the Church the food that it seeks in the 598 questions and answers in the Compendium, Catechism of the the Catholic Church. This 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. 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 program. The Compendium was prepared by a commission presided by the then Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger. Following the request for greater appreciation of the Catechism, and in order to meet a widespread need that emerged during the 2002 International Catechetical Congress, in 2003 the Holy Father established a special commission, presided by the prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, that he charged with preparing a Compendium, Catechism of the Catholic Church, containing a more concise and dialogic version of the same contents of Catholic Faith and morals., softback, pp 204
