An American catechism solidly grounded in the universal Catechism, yet adapted to the needs and style of American culture. Prepared by the American bishops in response to Pope John Paul II's desire for national versions of the universal Catechism, it is meant to help American Catholics live their faith in American society with its unique social, political and historical challenges and opportunities. The book follows the basic structure of the Catechism with four sections: Creed, Sacraments, Moral Life, and Prayer. Each chapter within those sections has the story of a biblical figure or an American Catholic, an explanation of doctrine, quotations, reflection, discussion questions and prayer. Also includes a subject index and a Scriptural index. Ideal for personal reading and study. Updated to include changes from the new translation of the Roman Missal. Paperback, 6 x 9, 637 pages, Imprimatur. (©2006)
NOTE: This tenth printing, February 2014, of the United States Catechism for Adults brings it completely up-to-date with changes to the Roman Missal, 3rd Edition.
