I thought it was well structured and a fairly easy read A good introduction.I do opt for the full Catechism green book it is adefinitive text. I am currently going through RCIA and couldn t help but jump around to get various questions answered I must say that despite going to mass with my Dad as a child, I still had a lot of misconceptions about the church I was also raised and baptized in a Baptist church Neither church demonized the other so I never had conflict of beliefs, but understanding the traditions and stances was a different story This book allowed for me to get a solid understanding of church doctrine and the reasoning I am currently going through RCIA and couldn t help but jump around to get various questions answered I must say that despite going to mass with my Dad as a child, I still had a lot of misconceptions about the church I was also raised and baptized in a Baptist church Neither church demonized the other so I never had conflict of beliefs, but understanding the traditions and stances was a different story This book allowed for me to get a solid understanding of church doctrine and the reasoning behind it I still have my own beliefs on some stances, but now the opposite does not feel so adversarial I love the history, philosophy, and invitation for discussion this book promotes It s pretty fantastic It has definitely helped me see clearer that I am making the right decision #EBOOK í United States Catholic Catechism for Adults ⚸ The presence of the Catholic Church in the United States reaches back to the founding days of our country through the leadership of Archbishop John Carroll, the first Catholic bishop in the United States His story like the stories at the start of each chapter in the United States Catholic Catechism for Adults give us a glimpse into the lives of Catholics who lived out their faith throughout our country s history Each chapter in the Catechism for Adults includes stories, doctrine, reflection, quotations, discussion questions, and prayer to lead the reader to a deepening faith The Catechism for Adults is an excellent resource for preparation of catechumens in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults and for ongoing catechesis of adults This year I m an RCIA catechist for the first time, so I picked up this catechism for American adults to get ideas on teaching those coming into the church It s a nice, easy read considering the often weighty topics it discusses, and it gives clear, easy to understand explanations of Catholic teachings interspersed with prayers, reflections, and profiles of saints and blesseds, mostly from North America The audio version includes nice background music for the prayers, reflections, and profiles This year I m an RCIA catechist for the first time, so I picked up this catechism for American adults to get ideas on teaching those coming into the church It s a nice, easy read considering the often weighty topics it discusses, and it gives clear, easy to understand explanations of Catholic teachings interspersed with prayers, reflections, and profiles of saints and blesseds, mostly from North America The audio version includes nice background music for the prayers, reflections, and profiles.I highly recommend this book for people who want to learnabout the Catholic faith and those who are already well catechized but want to get ideas on explaining the faith to others The audio version is great for listening while driving, exercising, or doing chores.This book differs from the Catechism of the Catholic Church, or universal catechism in that it is not the comprehensive explanation of the faith including paragraph numbers that was released all over the world in the 1990s This edition is a teaching tool for American adults that takes asimplified approach to the faith If you ve been considering reading the universal catechism but were feeling daunted by the task, you might want to check out the US Catechism for Adults first It emulates the structure of the universal catechism and pulls most of its doctrinal content from that resource I m feeling inspired now to read the universal catechism from cover to cover maybe sometime in 2015 or 2016 Each chapter is introduced from the viewpoint of a well known catholic These intros are the best parts of the book I gave the book three stars due to the many editing errors Incomplete sentences, misguided syntax, and placing words into quotes are some of the quirks Once I figured out this ongoing problem, I was better able to use this bopk. We use this book in our Parish for RCIA class It is a very approachable way to walk through the Catechism of the Catholic Church Previously we used This Is Our Faith , which I also recommend, but that book is somewhattechnical and heady than this volume This book works for those with no exposure to the Faith all the way to the most seasoned Parishoner. Interesting, but of course I have conflicting views with several aspects of the church This was required reading for RCIA The material was explained clearly and was easy to understand. Good book to read Good summary of the Catechism It is the official US Catholic Bishops summary, so this is their official position I would recommend it for anyone looking to understand the Catholic faithI would also get a copy of the Catechism as well. The United States Catholic Catechism for Adults proves that love and mercy were the foundation of Catholic faith long before Pope Francis As a returning Catholic, I decided to read this book to learn about Catholicism and grow my faith Frankly, I was afraid to read the Catechism of the Catholic Church itself because the numbered paragraphs were daunting This catechism takes to heart Pope John Paul II s direction to promulgate local catechisms to help people understand how to apply Church teac The United States Catholic Catechism for Adults proves that love and mercy were the foundation of Catholic faith long before Pope Francis As a returning Catholic, I decided to read this book to learn about Catholicism and grow my faith Frankly, I was afraid to read the Catechism of the Catholic Church itself because the numbered paragraphs were daunting This catechism takes to heart Pope John Paul II s direction to promulgate local catechisms to help people understand how to apply Church teachings in the face of the unique problems facing their societies It does a very good job.What I like most about USCCA is that it is broken into12 20 page chapters written in clear prose based on the Creed, the Sacraments, the Ten Commandments and prayer Each chapter begins with a short biography of a person of faith who exemplifies the topic under discussion and then proceeds with a short explanation of Church teachings followed by a summary, questions for thought, meditation and a prayer.For me, the chapters were just long enough Longer and I might not have tried to tackle 500 pages of religious text Being short, they allowed me to dip my toe in without too much apprehension The short biographies were well written and instructive, and the meditations relevant Although this is not a short book, it doesn t delve deep into issues Instead it gives you the basic teachings in easily understandable prose with good examples derived from life in the United States I have a muchcomplete understanding of Catholic teachings now and have a good idea of how to continue my learning It will be a book I will return too again and again and now that I have read it, I may just be able to tackle the Catechism of the Catholic Church with less fear Recommended by a Deacon when I complained that I had to read the Catechism with a dictionary standing by I am a cradle Catholic, educated 7 years in a Catholic school and never knew my religion until I returned after a 50 year absence What a blessing to find God waited for me to get a clue.
