Requiring more than seven years of research, nine complete redrafts, and more than 84,000 changes, the new Catechism conveys the Church's essential teachings clearly, concisely, and in a way that speaks directly to practicing Catholics. And, because of its interfaith openness, it relates to readers far beyond the borders of Catholicism.

Here it is -- the first new "Catechism of the Catholic Church" in more than 400 years, a complete summary of what Catholic throughout the world believe in common. This book is the catechism (the word means "instruction") that will serve as the standarad for all future catechisms.
The "Catechism" draws on the Bible, the Mass, the Sacraments, Church tradition and teaching, and the lives of saints. It comes with a complete index, footnotes and cross-references for a fuller understanding of every subject. Using the tradition of explaining what the Church believes (the Creed), what she celebrates (the Sacraments), what she lives (the Commandments), and what she prays (the Lord's Prayer), the "Catechism of the Catholic Church" offers challenges for believers and answers for all those interested in learning about the mystery of the Catholic faith. Here is a positive, coherent and contemporary map for our spiritual journey toward transformation.
The "Catechism of the Catholic Church" is, as Pope John Paul II calls it, "a special gift."
