Product Description

Review

This Compendium, presented by Pope Benedict XVI, is a synthesis of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. It contains, in concise form, all the essential and fundamental elements of the Church's faith ... In structure, contents and language, the Compendium faithfully reflects the Catechism of the Catholic Church . It should assist in making the Catechism more widely known and more deeply understood... Most directly suited to religious teachers, faith community leaders and others interested in concise, up-to-date catechism answers. --Review by Catholic Ireland.Net

The regular Catechism is of a size and nature to make difficult reading for many. Here, however, is what every family should have at hand in the home: the long-looked for epitome, which should replace the little green catechism introduced by the Hierarchy in the early 1950s, which still retains its hold over the minds of many. The Holy Father in his former role saw to its preparation; and he now writes of it in words that cannot be improved on. --Review by Father Stephen Redmond SJ appeared in the Irish Catholic 8 June 2006.

The Compendium - Catechism of the Catholic Church in its recently published user-friendly format will go some way towards combating both malice and ignorance as well as providing a readily accessible source for the most significant elements of church teaching. Pope Benedict XVI presents the Compendium as a faithful and sure synthesis of the bulkier Catechism containing as Pope Benedict declares all the essential and fundamental elements... which allows believers and non-believers alike to behold the entire panorama of the Catholic faith. The new publication restores the dialogical format of master and disciple and includes artistic images...that also communicate the gospel message. --Review appeared in Intercom, November 2006

Format: Hardcover
This is a truly excellent book. If you are interested in the faith, this treasury of information will be a great help! If you are a Catholic - then why havn't you got one?! Arranged in the old style question and answer format, it provides the same information as the larger, more expensive, 'Catechism of the Catholic Church', is easier to understand, and the economical price makes it more attractive! It includes Pope Benedict's Motu Proprio, and his original introduction, as well as some beautiful illustrations and descriptions to match.

This one does what it says on the tin (so to speak) by taking the standard cathecism of the Church and making it simpler and more accessible to the layman. Whether you're a Catholic or just an interested outsider, this will tell you a lot about Catholic social and religious teaching.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As suggested by the title this is a summary or abridgement of the weightier Catechism of the Catholic Church and, as such, is a good book to have by one's side to look up the basics of Catholic teaching. It is beautifully illustrated and very easy to understand but should not be used in place of The Catechism but as a portable companion.

The book is extremely informative and written with great attention to detail but not so much that it baffles the reader. It is written clearly and with easy to find sections and topics. Great if you need a book that delivers the basic Catechism of the Catholic Church. Well worth the money.

Read on it's own this book doesn't give much detailed answers about Church Doctrine but does give a basic understanding for people wanting to understand their religion a little better. Read in conjunction with The Catechism it helps as a quick summary to refresh the mind of things recently read. A must for every Catholic household and a good beginning place for newcommers to the faith.

Excellent value and a great aid to anyone studying the Catholic Catechism. As a returning Catholic I would strongly recommend it to anyone, like myself, trying to recapture a lost 37 years.
