Enhanced for Logos
Logos Editions are fully connected to your library and Bible study tools.



Any study of Catholicism must begin with the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Officially promulgated by Pope John Paul II in 1997, it is the first “universal” Catholic catechism since the Reformation and only the second in history. It is an epochal work that expresses the tenets of the Catholic faith consistent with their articulation at the Second Vatican Council, while remaining in organic unity with the tradition of the Church, drawing in abundance on the sources of Sacred Scripture, the Fathers of the Church, the liturgy, and magisterial authority. If one wants to know what the Catholic Church teaches, the Catechism, as John Paul II stated, is the “sure norm.”

The beauty and profundity of the text is such that while it was intended as a reference work, it is often read as devotional literature, permeated as it is with a subtle theology of love and communion. It is nevertheless comprehensive in its treatment, covering everything from contraception to the doctrine of the Trinity, from Purgatory to papal infallibility.

The Catechism is organized around "four pillars" of Catholicism: Creed, Sacraments, Moral Life, and Prayer; and it discusses these with reference to the most shared aspects of the Christian faith—for example, the Apostles’ Creed, the Ten Commandments, and the Our Father—and so is a welcome tool for facilitating dialogue between all Christians. Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI, oversaw the drafting of the text, and he has repeatedly pointed to the Catechism as a significant step toward an authoritative interpretation of the “Spirit of Vatican II,” toward a cessation of conflicts which have often rent the Church in the aftermath of the council, and toward a rapprochement with those Christians whom the council termed “Separated Brethren.”

Indeed, the Catechism of the Catholic Church: English and Latin (2 vols.) is a work that deserves a place in every Christian’s library. This collection includes both the English and Latin editions of the Catechism.

Due to copy right restrictions, the Catechism is only available to customers living in the United States, its territories, and Canada.

    When will the Catechsim (English) be available outside of the U.S. like in Australia? It would be a significant aid to the Logos software if it were.

    I just started using it today. So far it works fine. (When are we going to have it in Spanish?)
