The old "Penny Catechism" seems old-fashioned since the Second Vatican Council and the new, larger, Catechism.
NEVERTHELESS it still contains the essentials of Catholic belief (or Christian, if you prefer) and Mgr Gilbey's exposition of it for undergraduates is hard to beat.
It has been said that few hate the Catholic Church, but many hate a distorted image of it. If you would like to have the authentic version, then read this excellent book.
