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.

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.

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.

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.

Very easy for anyone to read. It helped me know so much more about the Catholic Church in such an approachable and easy way. The Catechism was sent in very good time. Excellent service. Thank you
