Youth Catechism of the Catholic Church
With a Foreword by Pope Benedict XVI
Publisher: IGNATIUS PRESS SANFRANCISCO
The Youth Catechism, which is written in language suitable for young people, deals with the entire Catholic faith as it was presented in the Catechism the Catholic Church (CCC of 1997), without aiming, however, at the completeness provided in the volume. The work is structured in Question-and-Answer format, and numbers after each answer refer the reader to the more extensive an in-depth treatments in the CCC. A commentary following the answer is meant to give the young person additional help in understanding the questions that are discussed and their significance in his life. Further-more, the Youth Catechism offers, in the margin a continuous series of supplementary elements, such as pictures, summary definitions, citations from Sacred Scripture, quotations from saints and reliable teachers of the faith but also from non-religious authors. At the conclusion of the book, there is an index of subjects and persons to facilitate finding specific topics.
