Catechism of the Catholic Church is the first new edition of the catechism in 400 years. Catechism means "instruction,"
and this text will remain the standard reference for Catholics for many future generations. It is the authoritative
summary of Catholic belief regarding the Church creeds, sacraments, commandments, and prayers. To get some idea of the
level of detail with which the Catechism engages Catholic doctrine, consider that 17 pages of explanation accompany the
opening words of the Apostle's Creed ("I Believe in God the Father"). The book is exceptionally well organized, with
line-by-line explanations of every conceivable aspect of orthodox Catholic belief. Extensive cross-referencing,
indexing, footnotes, and "In Brief" summaries of each section further ease the project of finding the precise answers to
any questions a reader might have. Even the layout of information on the page is easy on the eyes, with wide margins for
readers who wish to make notes. Furthermore, the back cover features a true rarity in the annals of world literature: a
blurb by the Pope. --Michael Joseph Gross
