For the first time in 400 years the Catholic Church has authorized an official Catechism of the Catholic Church. Using this official Catechism, Peter Kreeft presents a complete compendium of all the major beliefs of Catholicism in his readable, concise style.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church was written for the express purpose of grounding and fostering catechisms based on it for local needs and ordinary readers, and Kreeft does just that. He offers a thorough summary of Catholic doctrine, morality, and worship in a popular format with less technical language. He presents a systematic, organic synthesis of the essential and fundamental Catholic teachings in light of the Second Vatican Council and the whole of the Church’s Tradition. This book is the most thorough, complete, and popular summary of Catholic beliefs as represented in the universal Catechism.

In Catholic Christianity, Peter Kreeft has taken the core of the Catechism’s teaching and has represented it in his pithy and winning style. The result is the best entree to the Catechism yet—and therefore the best entree to the Catholic faith.
—Karl Keating, author, What Catholics Believe
